Marco was waiting for us when we arrived from Rome. The apartment was so light and charming. Marco had pasta, wine and other items available for us. The washing machine was a God send half way through our trip! We so enjoyed our time in Florence and the lovely apartment.

Cosi Bella! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Marcos is a wonderful host. The apartment is very clean and equipped with everything one would need....a bottle of wine, pasta, and all other household amenities. We walked everywhere to many different sites in Florence and among the river. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Florence. Petaluma, CA

Large and Roomy Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This a great apartment, it is large, roomy and very comfortable. Great well equipped kitchen if you want to fix your own meals. The owner meant us when we arrived and gave us a bottle of very good wine. The apartment is close enough to walk to all the major attractions or there is also public transportation right across the street. The apartment is on the upper lever so there a a couple of flight of stairs to climb. I would highly recommend this apartment to others and would certainly stay here again.

Great Host, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Marco is a gracious host who greated us with a bottle of wine (and pasta to cook), he was kind enough to drove us to the airport once we found out the taxi's were on strike.

The apartment is a nice walk from the historic center (no car or transit required). There are plenty of local restaurants close by.

The apartment is safe and well equipped.

The bathroom is clean and functional.

Laundry faciities are good.

Living room is comfortable but unfortunately the TV has no english news channels.

Bedroom has ample closet space but we did not find the bed comfortable.

May not be suitable for people with mobility issues (stairs to get the the apartment).

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great judgment, but some clarification: The bed has always been very appreciated by the other guests for its compactness. There is an option in English in the TV but you have to try. In the description of the characteristics of the apartment is specified: the 2nd floor Saluti

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Marco was a gracious and helpful host. The apartment was clean and spacious with everything practical one would need. The apartment is private and comfortably can sleep 3 to 4 guests. The historic center is a bit of a walk but is perfect for walking off your gelato! It is close to the Arno and is a great spot to start your Italian adventure.!
