Perfect location, well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just stayed here for 3 days from June 7-10 - we were in the Max apartment. The apartment was clean and moderately furnished, and was well equipped with all the necessary items. The best part of it was the location though. Short walk to the Santa Maria Novella train station, and many other sights, museums, shops, and many restaurants all around you.

As far as functionality, I would say this one could have used a folder/binder with instructions. We also stayed in Rome and Lake Garda using VRBO/Airbnb, and comparing them with this one, that was lacking, in my opinion. Of course, they all have their own pros and cons, and it wasn't really a big deal. The owners responded to my question and all was well.

The only negative I would say was that there are no real windows looking out. The only windows in the apartment all look to a tiny inside courtyard of other windows. If you look up, you may get a glimpse of what the weather is doing. So if you are mostly out and about, like we were, it's not a real issue. However, if you are planning on staying for a longer time and planning on spending some time indoors, then this apartment may not be for you.

The owners were very easy to work with, communicate with and were very friendly.

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after a long day of travel and found it easy to get our apartment. It was such an easy to walk from/to the train station, which was important to us, because we took a couple of day trips from Florence, and also had some luggage with us. It is also just a couple of blocks from the Piazza del Duomo, in one direction, and the Mercato Centrale (great place to eat or shop for food), in another direction. And the bartender at the Brew Dog pub right next door told us about a good brewpub, Mostodolce, also just a few blocks away. All of the attractions we were interested in were within walking distance. We never had to use a taxi or public transit of any kind.

The apartment is just perfect for a couple, and was a very comfortable place to enjoy a bottle of wine at the end of the day We really appreciated the big, beautiful bathroom and rain shower, not something you typically get in a hotel, and found everything in working order, including good, reliable wifi access. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends visiting Florence.

Jump Off Point

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for three days in October 2015 to site see Florence. The location is a short and easy walk from the main trail station which was very convenient for us. You have to lug your bags up two floors but that was quickly done - the stair was is not tight or narrow.

The suite has been renovated recently so the bathroom is fresh and fancy. The rain head shower is pretty ridiculous though as water only comes out a few holes - water pressure or volume I am not sure.

The bedroom is at the back of the suite away from the other rooms which was nice. There was obviously other families in the building as you can hear children playing at times but come bedtime, all is quiet.

We never used the kitchen as we like to enjoy local food when we are on vacation. Everything is as the pictures present and there were no surprises. Keep in mind you pay for electricity at the end of your stay. Our amount was so small they waved the cost - gracie.

Nicole was easy to reach ahead of our visit and her husband provided access to the suite - he doesn't speak much English, but we managed just fine.

All in all, a good place to stay if you want access to the trains and don't mind a short walk to the main squares of Florence.

Owner's Response: Thank you! It was a pleasure To have you as My guests. Thank you for telling me about the Rain show er, i will have it fine right away!

Just To be Clear about the locaton, The central station is Santa Maria Novella and it's Excel the same distance from the apt as the Main square in Florence: piazza Duomo. Both is 500 m from via faenza 11 (5 minute walking)! Nicole

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Max apartment is in the perfect location, two blocks from the Duomo, 50 meters from the Capilla Medici, one block from the San Lorenzo market, and a three minute walk from the train. Location could not be better in Florence. The apartment is located on a lively street full of bars and restaurants, but once inside you would never know if from how quiet it is. The apartment is very well appointed, clean, and very comfortable for two or a couple with a child. The only complaint would be that the pictures do not accurately depict the size of the apartment - with the very high ceilings it really feels much larger than it appears in the photos! Nicole was very helpful and flexible even when we had some last minute travel changes. I only wish we would have had more time to stay! I could not recommend this apartment more highly. I hope to return in the near future.

appartamento e posizione perfetti!!

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento di buon gusto al centro di tutto.

Periodo gennaio 13-17 febbraio 2015

La nostra famiglia (2 adulti e 3 bambini) ha trascorso un ottimo soggiorno nel centro storico di Firenze! L’appartamento era pulito, luminoso e ammobiliato con gusto. A noi è sembrato persino migliore che nelle foto sul sito HomeAway, infatti ci è sembrato più grande.

La posizione è perfetta per visitare tutti i siti principali ed entrambi, stazione centrale e Duomo, distano 5 minuti a piedi dall’appartamento.

Abbiamo avuto una culla per il nostro bambino (di 11 mesi) e i letti erano perfetti per il sonno ristoratore di cui si ha bisogno dopo una lunga giornata di passeggiate in giro per una delle più belle città d’Italia!

Consigliamo vivamente questo appartamento e saremmo felici di ritornare un giorno!

Mieux sur la photo qu'en vrai

  • 3 of 5

L'appartement est bien placé par rapport au centre historique. La rue en bas de l'Immeuble est très vivante.

Le marché est super. Mais l'appartement est sombre, il donne sur une petite cour intérieure. Par contre, c'était propre, sauf le bac à douche un peu moisi et qui était bouchė avec le flexible cassé.

Cependant, pour l'aménagement, il n'y a qu'un torchon, un peu juste pour une semaine, pas de théière, pas de petite passoire, pas d'essoreuse a salade.

La cuisine est jolie mais pas pratique pour le rangement intérieur des placards.

J.espere que cela pourra améliorer votre location pour les prochains séjours.
