Great location

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment is in the perfect location and has all the amenities you need. Everything is within walking distance including the train station. Tiziana was the most wonderful host. She was quick and clear in her communication and accessible with WhatsApp before we got there and during our stay. She was waiting at the apartment when we got there and clearly explained everything and gave some good tips on sight seeing as well.

In the historic center of Florence

  • 4 of 5

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

Owner's Response: 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.

Very nice, very clean, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment in Florence. It has been our favorite so far during our 2 week trip to Italy. We appreciated that the owner left water, shampoo, paper towels, toilet paper, soap, and several other products in case you forgot anything. Having a washing machine also came in handy. The location is super because you are a close walk to almost anything you'd want to see in the city. At the same time it was quiet at night so we slept very well. The only thing I'd like to have seen was a flat sheet on the bed instead of just the comforter, although the comforter(and everything else in the apartment) looked clean.

If you are looking for a nice place at a reasonable price in Florence you have found it.

Owner's Response: Thank you, I hope to have you still my guests. We put the duvet and duvet cover on the bed, because in the period in which you came it was still cold.

Tiziana's property was wonderful! Very clean, great amenities, reliable wifi, PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

Having never been in Italy before, my husband and took our time reviewing properties on VRBO (reading lots of reviews!). Admittedly, we were picky... wanting a reasonable price (less than $150/night) for a great location and a clean and quiet environment. We also absolutely required reliable WIFI, knowing that we wouldn't have cell phone coverage and would be accessing the Internet and communicating with people (in the U.S.) ONLY through WIFI.

Very honestly, Tiziana is wonderful, and her property was ideal for us. We highly recommend renting from her, and if/when we venture back to Florence, we plan to rent from her again. The property is small but met all of our needs and simply could not have been better located. Granted, Florence isn't all that big, but truly everything we wanted to visit was within 2-15 minutes (walking) from the property.

Two other things ended up being important, too, and really influenced our stay. First, Tiziana is incredibly kind. We had set a date and time to meet her at the property, but things went so wrong (as they often do while traveling!) and we showed up several hours late, late into the evening. Our plane was late arriving to Rome. We, therefore, missed our first train, which caused us to miss our connecting train. In our haste (and worry about being late for Tiziana), we hopped on the very next train for Florence, feeling relieved that we might only be 30-45 minutes late. But, oh, we were so wrong! Instead of the train being fast and comfortable (like the one we originally bought tickets for), it was old, slow, and stopped frequently. Rather than 1.5 hours, it took over 4 hours to get to Florence. To make matters worse, my phone died, as there were no outlets near our seats on the train, and there was no WIFI. Once in Florence, we found WIFI and Whatsapp'd Tiziana to let her know we made it. She had still stuck around, hours later, without contact from me! When we arrived in the taxi, she was waiting on the corner with a big smile. She made us feel right at home, and all the stress from the day went away!

And what was that second big thing that influenced our stay? The bed! We slept so good the whole time we were there! Comfy bed, comfy pillows (multiple levels of softness across pillows), and a great comforter. Overall, it was perfect!

Thank you, Tiziana!! We hope to be back!

Perfect location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 days at this lovely apartment. Everything was as described in the listing, including the strong wifi and the washing machine. We were able to do 2 loads of laundry and hang them out on the tiny balcony. The apartment was beautiful and so centrally located to everything in Florence. We could visit a museum in the morning, come home for lunch and a nao, and go back out. The kitchen and bath are small, but that is normal for a city apartment. Tiziana met us on the street in front of the apartment even though our train was late and showed us how to use everything. The only suggestion would be to add an american coffee machine as we ended up buying coffee on the street every morning. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location and wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in a great location to see all that Florence has to offer. Our meeting to see the apartment and keys was very timely. The charming apartment felt like home. It is located on a quiet street with stores and other apartments. The apartment was stocked with all the basics for cooking. Thanks for the great time in Florence, looking forward to coming back.
