Location, Spacious and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was within an easy walk to and from the train station. The location in the historic area was incredible. There was just my husband and myself. The larger bedroom bed was very comfortable. Although there was some noise from the street the newer windows blocked most out. We like to cook some of our meals when we travel so it was such fun to be so close to the Market Centrale. Great produce, great restaurants on the 2nd level and the apartment had everything we needed to include a washing machine. There’s a drying rack or if you preferred to use dryer there were 2 laundromats with a couple of blocks. We would stay there again for sure. The combination of historic building and modern conveniences was great. Thank you Mariangela and Sara for your wonderful instructions and suggestions.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed here for 6 nights and absolutely loved this apartment. The apartment had ample space for us and was very comfortable as well as had all of the utensils and cookware needed to prepare our meals. The location was fantastic. We were walking distance to all of the sights and activities we were interested in. We felt very safe and secure in the building and there wasn't much street noise at all considering how close we were to all of the action. The owner, Mariangela was so kind and welcoming. She did a wonderful job of helping us get settled in and oriented to the apartment and surroundings. She even gave us some fresh biscotti from a local bakery as a welcome gift. It was so tasty that we emailed her to find out how to get more! When I return to Firenze I will be renting from Mariangela again.

Perfect location, gorgeous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was so nice! We are a family of five and we were very comfortable here. Our host met us and gave us a thorough briefing about the property. She thought of everything to tell us- we had no questions!! The apartment was very spacious and had everything we needed and more! Location- near Duomo, a very big and nice grocery store less than 1 minute to walk, restaurants everywhere, ATM across the street, gelato, coffee shop with wifi is downstairs, central market is close, every thing is nearby! We walked from the train station which was easy- even with three kids and some luggage. We cooked fabulous dinners with local ingredients! The washer was perfect. We did hang our clothes to dry on the drying rack inside the apartment, which was not a problem- even jeans dried fast. The windows impressively keep out the street noise. The apartment was spotless and beautiful. Just beautiful!! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

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!
