Wonderful stay in Florence...

  • 5 of 5

I have recently stayed in this lovely apartment in the historical part of Florence. It is a wonderful, lovely decorated apartment with a fabulous full size bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge area. Katy was a truly lovely hostess and answered all my enquiries before leaving Australia and was there to meet me on the day.

The apartment is up some flights of stairs, but you only have to go up once and down once with your luggage, ear plugs were useful but the double glazed windows were very sound proof and after a day out exploring the beautiful area, sleep was easily obtained. The apartment was very comfortable, cozy and had everything you would need for your stay, including a welcome bottle of wine and snacks and information regarding the area and maps. The markets nearby and lovely restaurants were all on hand as were the buses if you needed to catch a bus, but within walking distance of everything nearby and all the sights.

I truly enjoyed my stay at this beautiful apartment and would stay again in a heartbeat, thank you Katy, loved every minute of my stay in Firenze and hope to see you again one day....

Charming apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Katy was a wonderful hostess and was waiting at the apartment for our arrival. She greeted us with a friendly smile and a bottle of wine and snacks. The apartment is located a comfortable walking distance from the train station and is very close to the historical center of Florence. The apartment has all the amenities for a wonderful stay and we enjoyed making breakfast there each morning. The market, restaurants and shops are very close by. We took a day trip to Pisa during our stay and it was very easy to do from the apartment. All the major sights were easy to access from the apartment and Katy had a very organized folder to help with any questions we might have had.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at her apartment and would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay.

She is very communicative, so scheduling our arrival time was not an issue.

We had no problems with the street noise at night, and the mosquitoes were not too active and we used Katy's bug zappers to help keep them to a minimum.

We loved our stay at Katy's place and would definitely recommend it.

Perfect place in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Kati's apartment. She greeted us and was so kind and helpful helping us get settled into the apartment. She had a binder with all the points of interest and recommended restaurants which was extremely useful. The location couldn't be better as it is in walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence. Kati left us a bottle of wine and snacks which were great. The whole apartment was clean and tidy just like the photos and the bed was very comfortable. We absolutely loved our stay and would stay at Kati's again in a heartbeat.

Stylish apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfirend and I stayed here for 3 nights during the summer of 2015.We loved our stay here.

The stylish apartment is in a great location, only minutes walk from the Duomo and 5 minutes from the Uffizi gallery.The apartment is on a quiet street which comes to life at night with a great bar and a well respected restaurant just doors down. However this stylish, clean and cosy apartment does not let the noise in. There are loads of bars and restaurants just round the corner. The apartment has everything you could need when on holiday.

On arrival we met the owner, Kati, who gave us a very warm and enthusiastic welcome explaining many features of the apartment and providing lots of advice about Florence. It was great to meet Kati and its obvious she really enjoys greeting her guests. I have and will continue to recommend this aparment to friends and family.

great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

I recently traveled through Europe and this was my favorite place I stayed by far. Kati greeted us and gave us a tour of the apartment. The kitchen was well stocked and she even had laundry detergent so we could wash some clothes. (very much needed!) The bathroom was roomy. The whole apartment was beautiful and cozy. We really enjoyed just resting and spending time in the house.

The location was great. Easy walking to anywhere in the city.

Clean and cozy home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in this apartment in October 2015. Kati takes a great deal of pride in her unit and we really enjoyed our stay! It was clean, well decorated and cozy. We didn't cook while there, but it seemed to have all the basics you could need. There is also a washer and clothes drying rack (which really came in handy for us - Kati had detergent as well), wifi and an umbrella in case it rained. She even left us a bottle of wine!

The apartment is walking distance to all the major sights. We even walked to the apartment from Firenze S.M.N. It was a little farther than around-the-corner, but we packed light and it was not an issue at all. There are several restaurants and an ATM right around the corner - very convenient.

As other reviewers noted, this apartment is directly above a popular bar where patrons gather in the street below your windows at night (we were there on a weekend). However, with the double windows in the bedroom, we had no issues sleeping. Keep in mind the unit is on the 4th floor and there is no lift (packing light comes in handy again).

Kati was easily available via email and text throughout our stay. We would definitely consider staying here again if we return in the future. Beautiful city!

Thanks for everything, Kati!
