Great location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment and location. It is right in city center with shopping restaurants and tourist sites literally a block away. We were met quickly and checking in was easy. Lots of nice touches to make you feel at home. We did have to pay extra 100 euro in gas usage for a week, collected prior to departure; have not done that with other rentals. Wonderful experience overalll and will stay here again.

This rental exceeded our expectations. It is very centrally located next to the Duomo. It is also equipped with any amenities you would need. We would definitely stay here again!

Unbelievable location, fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cradle of Dante as the last stop on an amazing three week France and Italy excursion, and what a way to end the trip! This apartment is absolutely gorgeous - very well appointed and in the most perfect location across the street from the Duomo. We kept joking that everything we wanted to see was seven minutes away from us, but it was absolutely true. Check in was quick and easy, and I have to commend Crescenzo's team for making us feel welcome and for facilitating our transfer from the train station. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked with what we needed to cook for ourselves - our only adjustment was the water pressure in the showers which was a little weaker than we are used to in North America, but we just smiled and got used to it - such a small thing compared to how wonderful our stay was here. We absolutely loved our time here and look forward to returning back to Firenze and spending even more time in this lovely home.

The Craddle of Dante is Simply Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Our family (of 4) spent 4 days in this lovely apartment. It is centrally located around the corner from the Baptistry and the Duomo. It is a top floor apartment and has a small but very useful lift to accommodate luggage and the people in our party. The apartment was lovely and has access to a great little roof top patio which has a nice view over much of Florence as it is one of its tallest buildings. The apartment was well furnished with ornate pieces with plenty of armoire and closet space to accommodate us comfortably and 2 bathrooms so that we need not share with our kids. Coming from the U.S. we were especially happy with the great AC, especially in the late days of August.

For everything that the apartment is, the management of the apartment is that much better. We were met by Alexandra, who was as accommodating as any owner or management service that we have encountered during our Hone Away travels. She had water, juice and fresh fruit awaiting us. Beyond the hospitality, she was informative and offered a book of suggestions for tours, cultural and religious sites and especially the food and the restaurants. And if that wasn't enough she even rushed to the train station to find us before our train left in order to return items of clothing we had forgotten. A five star experience. You can't go wrong here. It is well worth every penny and then some.

Outstanding location in Central Florence

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful find in the heart of Florence. Very well appointed and extremely well kept and clean. The Air Conditioning was efficient and performed beyond expectations during 100 degree F plus weather during our stay. The location is "perfect" for using Art Viva Tours as the meeting locations are just a few minutes walk. Upon arrival we were met by Alessandra who had fresh fruit and Wine waiting for us! She took great care of us during our stay when we needed her. The owner helped us find transportation that was outstanding, prompt and comfortable. The rooftop view is just as pictured-enjoyed coffee in the morning, a few lunches and nighttime views from up there. Sleeping accommodations are very comfortable. Well appointed kitchen for cooking if you choose. Multiple Restaurants within a few minutes walking distance. Would absolutely rent this again and again!

3 Great Days in beautiful apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at # 4 Via de Brunelleschi for 3 nights from July 4- July 7th. The apartment is very modern and very clean with 2 nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms and a cute kitchen. The A/C works very well, which was quite necessary as it was very hot while we were visiting. Assasandra greated us right on time at the entrance and gave up a tour and explanation of the apartment including a trip up to the beautiful roof deck. Although the location is right in the center of everything, with the windows closed and the A/C cranking, we were not bothered by the outside noise. We walked everywhere and were happy to return to the unit in the evening. I would say the apartment is good for up to 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 kids, but I think that anything more would be quite tight. Don't hesitate if you want to experience a true taste of Florence!
