Bright Red Suite

Perfect location and fit

  • 5 of 5

We loved the week we spent in the Bright Red Suite. The location is perfect - close to the central district but not actually in it, near to the train station, on a small piazza with good food options, etc. Mariangela and her assistant Sara were helpful and kind. We slept well. The shower is a little snug (by American standards) but had plenty of hot water. The flat was clean, and everything worked well. Highly recommended!

Clean, modern right in the heart of everything

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in the Bright Red Suite with a friend and we had a great experience. From the moment I submitted my request, I received a warm welcome from Mariangela, who is the sweetest person you could meet. Even before I left the US, she was emailing me information about the weather in Florence and ideas for things to do. She always made herself and her team available prior to our arrival and during our stay. We arrived via train from Naples and it was a quick 10 minute walk that was easy to maneuver, even with our luggage. We were immediately greeted and assisted upstairs. The space is well appointed and most importantly (to me) extremely clean. There is a coffee shop downstairs, along with a number of restaurants, bars and shops. The Central Market is less than 5 minutes away where you can get the most amazing, fresh items for your stay. The entire city is very walkable from this location. The Duomo and the Pontevecchio were always in site. If I return to Florence any time in the near future, I will look no where else for a place to stay other than Glam Apartments.

Our Favorite of the Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in three different VRBO apartments during our Europe tour and this one was the best. It was perfectly located-near, but not too close, to the Duomo, which is in the center of everything. The apartment was tastefully decorated, very clean, and well provisioned. We even cooked a meal in one night, finding a cheese grater, spices, and olive oil. The beds were quite comfortable, including the fold-out couch, and the double-paned windows kept out the noise. Note that WiFi is limited to the living room and you cannot have the AC running in the bedroom and living room simultaneously. Most delightful was Mariangela, the manager/owner. She was a prompt communicator, and friendly, yet very professional. She oriented us to the apartment, as well as the city, and checked in by email to ensure all was in order. She recommended restaurants, including the best pizza we had during our Italy stay-Mama Napolitano-, a market, and the best shopping. We could not have been more pleased. Thank you Mariangela!

Best location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in this apartment in Florence. This place is at the best location in the city. You can walk everywhere. Downstairs there is a delicious gelato place and a nice pub for drinks at night. We walked all over town. The apartment is clean and the owner is so nice. She explains everything very well. She is proud of her apartment. If you have questions during your stay she will replied quickly. If you have problems going up the stairs, please note that there is no elevator in the building. We liked it so much that we wanted to stay longer but we had reservations in Rome. Don't hesitate to stay in one of her apartments if you are in Florence.

Perfect Place. Amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be better & more central to ALL the best things in the city (but also quiet at night)! I mean really, just look at the map!!! The flat was beautiful, the AC really worked for us Americans, and Mariangela was AMAZING - a smiling, cheerful, and professional host! I can't imagine a better owner/host from beginning to end. When we return to Florence, I don't need to look anywhere else.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just spent three lovely days in Florence where we stayed at the Bright Red Suite. The apartment lived up to its billing - - it is bright, airy, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Plus, it is in a great location, directly across the street from the Medicci Chapel in the San Lorenzo neighborhood. Almost everything you came to Florence to see is within easy strolling distance from the apartment. Outside the door are cafes, bars, restaurants, and a gelateria. Our host, Mariangela, was gracious and could not have been more accommodating. We could not have been happier with our selection.
