Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Easy walking distance to all sites. Apartment had everything we needed. The owner was wonderful in arranging our arrival time. We enjoyed our stay in Florence. I am just over five feet tall and made out ok. My husband is over six feet so he was not as comfortable in pasts of the apartment. We had everything we needed for our stay.

Perfect little apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent one night in this apartment and it worked perfectly for us. It was very easy to find walking from Santa Maria Novella train station. The building is very secure and clean as is the apartment. It is walking distance to the centre and there is a market close by. The ceiling takes a bit of getting used to but I think it made for a fun stay. The bathroom and kitchen were great and we were able to get a load of laundry done. Elisa was very welcoming and we appreciate her accommodating us for the short stay.

Great location! Perfect place to stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 4 nights and loved it! Elisa was really great to work with and made everything so easy! We were able to walk easily to all the places we wanted to visit in Florence. The apartment is very clean and comfortable. The ceiling is low in places (as she mentions) and my husband bumped his head a couple of times, but we were well aware of that before we booked. There are great little places to get a cup of coffee and something to eat close by. We would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Florence! We loved staying here and we loved Florence!

Clean, safe and good value for money.

  • 4 of 5

My husband I stayed in this apartment in our first visit to Florence. Elisa was very lovely on arrival, although could not speak a lot of English. The apartment is nice and clean, and felt like it is in a safe neighbourhood. The walk into the centre of town was about 25 minutes, but public transport is very close. Our only concerns with the apartment was that the roof is very low in parts, and you are unable to stand up straight. Also the towels we were given were quite small, I would use them for a hand towel instead of a bath towel. However, that being said, we felt the apartment is definitly value for money and would recommend to any budget traveller with no concerns.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay! No true what you say and others tourist confirm that. Sorry! It's an attic mansard, where the maximum height of 2.20 meters, while in other areas it gets a1, 70 . The center of Florence (Palazzo Uffizi for example) is walking distance in 15- minutes NO 25 MINUTES, the station central Santa Maria Novella in 5 minutes by walk. There are bus stop C1 and C2 of Ataf service from 3 minutes by walk and tramway of Gest service, that bring you to the central station in 8 minutes maximum.

Super cozy apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 4 of 5

We had a GREAT stay in this apartment. Elisa communicated clearly before our stay and welcomed us upon our arrival, providing tourist brochures and restaurant tips. She was very friendly and easy to communicate with.

The location is fantastic - under ten minutes walk to the main train station and we walked to all other sites in Florence.

The apartment is small, but well-designed, with everything we needed. Breakfast on the little balcony was just lovely. The ceilings are low in places, so it may not be the best place for a very tall traveler, but we have no complaints and can recommend it highly.
