Fantastic place right in the middle of everything

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a month in Firenze. The property was very well located, fairly close to the Duomo and the main museums: most of them are less than 10 minutes away on foot. The place has ample space and a very comfortable bed! It was very clean and comfortable.

For us, the most important aspect for our stay was that the place had a fully equipped kitchen so that we could cook at home. If you like cooking, the Sant'Ambrogio market was our best choice for produce, but they are only open mornings and they are closed on Sundays. That market is but a few minutes away on foot. We also had a small child, so we really needed the washing machine as well, which worked very well. For our son the best thing about the house was the Gelato across the door, which was excellent. We will definitely stay here again if we go back to Firenze.

Iffy water

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location. Domatilla was very polite, had a cold, did not feel well. I emailed her but didn't get a response until the morning of our arrival. Our concierge at the previous hotel let us know that Italians don't view timelines as we Americans do and not to worry. I didn't sleep well that night and the evening was stressful. Nolihhrbulb in the bathroom over the sink. No water them pending we left, no shower, fuzzy teeth. Otherwise a great find.

cozy apartment right where you want to be

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were fascinated with Florence and loved every second while we were here. No small part was because of where we were staying. We typically search high and low for the right places to stay as they impact our trips substantially.

We happened upon the 'Nest' searching online and came to find this place was more than advertised. Very nice interiors, great kitchen, comfortable living room, the most comfortable bed we've had in a month of traveling and a great bathroom. The best part though is the location. Your views are from the top floor right out onto a fairly busy pedestrian only street. We discovered this to be centrally located near the Duomo, but felt very local and away from the tourist crowds. Excellent shops and restaurants are right around the corner along with fresh pasta, a butcher shop, a market (fresh produce), wine shops. Everything we could possibly want. Also, whenever we entered the home off the street, we laughed to ourselves at how great of a place this is.

One thing is for certain, we will definitely be back to Florence and will be staying right here! Many thanks Benedetta and Domitilla!!

Santa Croce is famous for ITS Church and its historical traditions

(The old soccer was born in Florence around 1200 and it is still

played every year in Santa Croce square) is one of the most eventful

districted of the city. Full of bars and restaurants, here you can find
