Wonderful vacation apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location yet close to the historic center of the city. Everything is an easy walk from the apartment. Well furnished apartment with very usable kitchen. The manager was quick to help when we needed something.

Perfect location for convenience and quietness

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect apartment for a couple. We found that is was extremely quiet as well as very clean and tidy. Plus, it was convenient for all of our wishes and needs -- grocery shopping near by, bus stops around the corner! Great local trattorias are just down the street that included more locals than tourists. It is a short walk to Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery as well as other major sights. Local buses stopped literally around the corner made all of Florence very accessible.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends. It has many conveniences including the clothes washer in the apartment and the jacuzzi Beth tub. It is very clean, well maintained and managed by an English speaking man who was SUPER helpful and did a thorough job in following through to answer questions we initially had.

***We would recommend listing in the discription the amenities of the clothes washer, hair dryer. The wonderful drying rack in the apartment was very adequate for drying clothes as well as bed linens and towels. It would be good to add to the apartment description that the king bed is up a set of stairs, even though there was a sofa bed in the living room.

Nice and Cozy Apartment

  • 3 of 5

Nice cozy Apartment. Great location. Within walking distance to all landmarks.

Carlos the property manager is a true pleasure. Very knowledgeable and always available for help.

However, I am rating the apartment as a 3 star, due to the fact that the Jacuzzi was not functional and due to the location of the apartment, their is major humidity, which caused breathing problems for my wife, dampening our vacations.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you just never know what you might find. Especially when you're locating accommdations on the internet and aren't familiar with the city. In this case, the city was Firenze (Florence) and I wasn't quite sure the layout, etc. Well, I couldn't have found a more perfect location for a short term apartment. Centrally located, just minutes from Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, Piti Palace, Boboli Gardens... Great supermarket near Ponte Vecchio, great restaurants and of course, gelato on every corner! The space was perfect... we were there during a heat wave of 95F degree days.. the apartment was naturally cool and refreshing, all the amenities we could want, and wifi to keep us connected and sharing our great experiences with friends and family. A ground floor unit, with just a few steps to reach it.. a short flight of steps inside to reach the lofted bedroom with a window overlooking a courtyard. With Firenze at your fingertips, it'd be hard to stay inside much, be when you do, it's a comfortable place to call home during your exploration of the city. I'd rent it again in a heartbeat and encourage/refer my friends to do the same! Grazie for a wonderful stay!

Easy in Florence

  • 4 of 5

The man who meets you gives you so much help and information it should be added in to the price. The place is like staying at your grandparents, it has a old fashion look but is comfortable and homey. The tub is nice after a long day to soak your tired body and the washer was a great help to us since we packed light. The location was nice not far from the main hot spots but quiet and more local.
