Great Place to Stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed five nights at one of Mery's apartments above the ceramics shop.The apartment was clean, spacious and secure. The location was perfect - situated between Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace on a charming street with many restaurants and shops. It was within easy walking distance of all the attractions in old Florence.

Mery was a great host and very friendly. We enjoyed our conversations with her. She even gave us a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift. Her ceramics shop was great and we bought several pieces from her. Next time we are in Florence, we will definitely stay there again. Thank you, Mery.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The unit has plenty of room, comfortable beds, comfortable bathrooms, very clean. Great communication with owner/management. I read in some reviews is hot, Not really, we stayed there in the middle of the summer, fans are great quality and blow nicely, and if you keep the the shutters down during the day the unit doesn't get hot. Location is excellent.

The only one thing I noticed is the kitchen could have been better stoked.

Spacious, Spotless, Great location, Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Mery, the owner, was a wonderful hostess. She was warm and welcoming, spoke perfect English and had a bottle of wine in the apartment waiting for our arrival.

The apartment is spacious and immaculate and we couldn't ask for a better location, near the Pone Vecchio.

Mery also owns the pottery shop right downstairs, where we picked up hand painted souvenier oil and vinegar bottles.

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence.

Clean, simple apt at an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The apt was very simple, nothing fancy, but the location is amazing. It's just a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Due to the fact that it is right in the heart of tourism it was on the louder side. If you are a light sleeper pack ear plugs. However, Merrie the owner, was an amazing host. She was very accommodating, extremely friendly and a wealth of knowledge for traveling tourist. If I return to Florence, I would absolutely stay here again.

Perfect location, helpful contacts.

  • 5 of 5

Located within walking distance of the best that Florence has to offer, our stay was convenient and pleasant. Our contacts were very helpful and responsive in helping us find the place, as the location is a bit hidden. However, once found we enjoyed having some degree of privacy away from the crowds. There's plenty of shopping, restaurants, and the Duomo is just a few minutes away by foot. Be warned that parking can be a challenge, navigating through small streets in thick crowds, but if you're courageous and adventurous with your driving, you can find something close by. We were given a few options. Walking from the main train station, the apartment is just 15-20 minutes away, even with shopping crowds. All in all a great location, very helpful contacts, and a comfortable stay by Italy standards.
