Amazing apartment and location!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was spectacular!!! Wow! Not enough good words. It was very clean, in a pristine location, and the terrace was great to watch sunsets on. It was also very spacious, which we enjoyed. I would most definitely come back again.

Lovely apartment with terrific roof terrace!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a well-located, spotlessly clean, well-equipped apartment in Florence, look no further. This is steps from the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio and an amazing array museums and fine restaurants.

We were greeted by Giorgia and Alessandra, who were charming and helpful in every way. The apartment was spotless and comfortable and well-equipped. They even had an American style coffee maker—and coffee!

We highly recommend buying some wine and cheese and going to the rooftop for drinks at sunset. Really…it was one of the highlights of our stay. The sights and sounds of Florence are all well-documented so no need to go on about the splendor here.

We do recommend buying the Firenze Card. We got full use of it and not standing in line for an hour to get into museums was worth the price paid alone. We easily give this apartment 5 stars. We look forward to returning. Bravo!

Perfect location that has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more pleased with our experience at this property. The location can not be beat!!! Literally 2 right-hand turns and you're at the Duomo. Easily accessible to everything you could want. 2-bedrooms/2 baths and a pull out sofa comfortably slept our family. Beds were comfortable and overall space was just enough for us. Lovely kitchen equipped with it all; washer/dryer combo. It was extremely clean (and even smelled good!). Roof terrace with an incredible view of Florence was a bonus. Owners were super friendly and pleasant. Had fruit and a bottle of chianti as a welcome token. Would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a perfect comfy home away from home for your Florence stay.

Amazing time in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cradle of Dante. The apt was in a perfect location with all the amenities of home. We were warmly when we arrived and the apt was spacious, extremely clean and bright. We had an amazing rooftop garden with spectacular views of Florence. When we arrived, there was an abundance of fresh towels, supplies, water, and fruit. My two daughters and I loved every minute of our stay in Florence and the apt made things so much nice and easier.

An excellent, well maintained property in an outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well decorated, pleasantly furnished and immaculately clean. Alessandra and Cecilia made us very welcome and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location of the property is excellent with stunning views of the Duomo and surrounding hills from the rooftop terrace and all of the key sights of Florence within walking distance. We have no hesitation in recommending 'The Cradle of Dante'.

Can we give it 6 stars? 7?

  • 5 of 5

Just perfect, beginning to end. We were met by Alessandra and Serena, who made us feel completely at home, and were hugely helpful and utterly delightful for our whole stay. When we (stupidly) locked ourselves out of the apartment late on a Saturday night, they were immediately on the case, and handled it with grace and charm. Also - make sure to take their restaurant advice!

The apartment was immaculately clean and perfectly comfortable for our family of four. We were there in late August, and the powerful air-conditiong was a huge plus in the summer heat. There were plenty of linens and fresh towels; the bathrooms were spotless; everything was as well-maintained as could be.

The biggest plus for this property, however, is the location. Literally around the corner from the Duomo complex on one side and the Piazza della Republica on the other, it's no more than a few minutes walk from everything, and yet still feels like a quiet cool oasis in the middle of the city bustle. And the roof! O.M.G. We made a point of taking advantage of it as much as we could, often ending a busy day with a drink and a snack with the dome within an arms' reach. Pure bliss.

We could not have been happier during our 4-day stay. Truly the highlight of our trip to Italy, and the standard against which all of our future stays will be measured.
