Lovely Apartment, Great Location!
Wonderful apartment and the best location in Florence! It looks just like the photos, and it IS on the first floor (European style---it’s on the American “second” floor) with thirty steps but in short flights up. The apartment has got a nice cozy feel to it with a wonderful ceiling of exposed beams and white plaster walls—wood floors too. The furnishings fit the space with graceful dining chairs, for example, and a nice comfy traditional sofa, but the equipment is modern—good wi-fi, tiny but mod kitchen bathroom and shower (but no smaller than is usual for historic-district rental apartments in any European city). It was also hotel-quality CLEAN!—much appreciated! But best of all is the location: it’s just about a hundred FEET from a pretty little square with a column and statue that is practically ON the river—right at the Santa Trinita bridge (the next to the Ponte Vecchio) so in the evenings we would walk out to look at and take photos at sunset from the bridge and also walk across it to the wonderful gelato shop on the right just at the other side of the bridge (best “crema” gelato of the entire trip). In the other direction up toward the Duomo right next door is good little “cookie factory” then a welcome pharmacy. Farther in that direction are fine restaurants (our favorite, the “Restaurant La Poste” is a couple of blocks in that direction then down to the left—it also stays open in the late afternoon—very rare for good places and are elderly and need to eat early—like 5PM). The Duomo and other tourist areas were shockingly crowded for October—nearing the “off” season we hoped—so I would highly recommend the expensive but essential Firenze card that gets you in almost everywhere by going straight past the line (lines were several blocks long for the Duomo and that was true all day—not much shorter elsewhere). Absolutely everything is within easy walking distance from the apartment, but without the Firenze card you’re going to spend most of your time in a line.
a cozy home away from home
The small and comfortable apartment is located in a wonderful area of the city close to great restaurants, museums and historic sites. Just a few blocks from the Ponte Vecchio bridge , it has everything a single person traveling alone or a couple would need for a few nights or an extended stay. Although one will find small spaces in kitchen and bathroom, they are well designed ,modernized and efficient. It what is to be expected in a reappropriated, retro-fitted modernized space in a 700 year old building.
Tiziana, the owner and warm, welcoming host plays a large part in making one feel welcome. If we have the opportunity to return to this exciting and vital city in our lifetimes I would not hesitate to see if this place was available again . Thank you Tiziana for your warmth and help. It made our 6 night stay in Florence so very memorable.
Thank you John
Fabulous Florence Find
Location location location! This apartment is wonderfully located within walking distance to all of the best parts of Florence. It is well appointed with everything one needs for a lovely stay in this fabulous city.
An extra added addition is nightly concerts on the Square just around the corner from the front door of the apartment building. On our four nights in Florence we had two nights of cello concerts and two nights of flute music.
Excellent restaurants and shopping just steps away. You really could not ask for a better Place to stay in Florence.
Great location in Florence!
Tiziana was great communicating with me before my arrival. The apartment was nice, clean, well equipped and terrific location to see everything in Florence within walking distance. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Great stay in center of Florence
The apartment was perfect for me and my wife. The best part was the location. It was walking distance to all the major attractions in Florence. It was also very close to the river, which made it easy to find, and walking distance from the train station. Even with the hot summer days the apartment was cool and had A/C. It was also very nice having laundry in the apartment, but be ready to hang your clothes because there is no dryer. Bathroom, especially shower, was a little tight especially since my wife and I are tall, but that seems to be pretty standard across Italy/Europe. Kitchen was also small, but we did not need to use at all during our stay. Would work if you just needed simple meals or breakfast, but would be tough to do a large meal. Overall, I was very happy with our stay here and would book again.
In the historic center of Florence
The apartment was perfectly situated and perfectly outfitted -- even a teapot and plenty of other supplies to make our stay easier. Tiziana was a wonderful warm host who met us according to our schedule and was very helpful. My only difficulty was with the mattress which I found a bit uncomfortable - though this may be a matter of preference. Otherwise, a comfortable apartment in an excellent location. 15 minutes walk to SMN station. 5 min to Duomo. 1 minute to super chic shopping
Thank you for your feedback.
The mattress is a matter of preference, as you rightly specified. There are those who have highlighted the quality of comfort of the same.
Lovely apartment located in the ancient heart of Florence between via Tornabuoni and Piazza Signoria, under the corner you can find the most interesting places such as Palazzo Strozzi, Ponte Vecchio, Arno river, Piazza Signoria, Galleria degli Uffizi. This is one of the most desirable areas in Florence (within a few minuts walking from the train station Santa Maria Novella).
The apartment is on the first floor of a central building. It is quiet and it has got all conforts. Entrace into an intimate living/dinning are with TV, table for 4, sofa-bed, kichenette with 3 burners, fridge, MW, duble bed room with small balcony, bathroom with shower stall and washing machine. AC.
The neighborhood has everything you need. Typical shop, luxury shop, restaurants
