Quiet and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It is in a quiet neighborhood about 20 minutes from the historic center. There is a lovely terrace. Alessandra met us at the apartment and gave us a nice orientation. As others have mentioned, a book with instructions, local restaurants, shops, and a map, etc. would be nice.

Charming, comfortable, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two adults, two pre- teens) was very comfortable during our stay at Alesandra's apartment. It was an easy 20 minute walk from the apartment to Florence's historic district. The apartment had everything we needed to be comfortable, including a beautiful terrace where we sat and enjoyed our breakfast every morning.

The apartment wa immaculate, fully equipped with everything we needed to make dinner, to be comfortable, (including AC) during the heatwave in Florence during our stay.

Alessandra was very gracious and responsive to all our questions about buses, local grocery store (less than ten minute walk), where to find the best pizza in the neighborhood. She even arranged a cab for us for the morning we were leaving (my Italian is atrocious).

The one thing I would ask, and have noticed that others have asked as well, is that it would be very helpful if she put in writing, the information she imparted verbally to us when we arrived. It also would have helped to have written instructions on using the washing machine. We specifically looked for apartments with washers, and although I looked online for directions for using the brand of washer, I never got the washer to work properly.

That said, unless I wanted a shorter walk to the historic center, I would definitely stay in this apartment again. I already miss having my morning tea on the terrace.

The apartment was cozy comfortable and very clean

The apartment was impeccable as described - cozy and comfortable. Alessandra has been an excellent host and accommodated our requests without any issues. It was close to bus station to center of the city within minutes. We had very pleasant stay with the kids.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. Clean, nicely furnished, comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood just 20 minutes from the train station. We especially loved the veranda with the sun in the mornings. Alessandra was very helpful and responsive to all our needs. She recommended two great restaurants in the neighborhood that we frequented: Santa Lucia and San Jacopino. We highly recommend them as well as this apartment and hostess. I definitely would stay here again.

Another fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've rented from this owner - same building but a different apartment this time. Both stays have been fantastic and this stay was no exception. The apartment is centrally located - within walking distance to attractions and there are a number of good restaurants nearby. We were very comfortable in the apartment and everything we needed was provided for us. Clean, quiet and tastefully decorated. We loved having the terrace and eating breakfast outside in the mornings. Thank-you - we would absolutely recommend renting from this owner to friends and family!

Beautiful apartment with convenience to the city!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our stay in Florence! It was clean, modern, well-decorated, safe, and comfortable. The bus station was a short walk down the road and travelers can easily catch one bus to take them directly into the city. There is a grocery store nearby and two great restaurants recommended to us by the host. The host was professional, personable, and accommodating. She was wonderful about timely communication via email, we were able to add an additional night prior to our arrival, and, upon request, she arranged a taxi to return us to the train station. Our only suggestion is to consider providing some written instructions on how to get places (bus stop, restaurants, grocery), apartment amenities (air conditioning units, trash, etc) and perhaps a city map. These certainly are minor things, but they would lessen the initial confusion for those staying in the apartment. They certainly wouldn't keep us from renting again if we are back in Florence. It was truly a wonderful place to stay!
