Cozy and well prepared apartment

  • 4 of 5

The very well remodeled apartment, spotless clean in a convenient location within walking distance to the Old Town, the train station, bus stop, car rental and restaurants. We could find parking space in 5 minutes walking distance of the apartment every day and it was free! We had a very warm welcome from Sergio who helped us with everything we need during the stay. We definitely recommend the apartment. We may only note that it might a bit hard to walk stairs for senior adults or people with limited mobility.

Great Apartment and Location, Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great neighborhood to stay in while in Florence. So much of the best shopping and dining and views are on this "Oltrarno" side of the river. Yet it's still such a short walk to all the important art and history of centro. Sergio and his partner both greeted us and could not be warmer or more welcoming and accommodating. There are 43 stairs up the the apartment, then another flight up to the bedroom. But you probably are not visiting Italy if you don't like climbing stairs! For us it was not a problem. If there is a downside of this apartment, it might be that there is not much a sitting area. The kitchen and it's table are quite small. But for us, this was well worth the trade-off. To stay in such a clean apartment, so close to everything we wanted to be near, with these wonderful hosts, at a very fair price--that is what we were seeking, and this was perfezione!

Perfect place in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and Sergio, the gracious owner, exceeded all of our expectations. Located a quick walk from the center of Florence, the apartment is spotless and modern. The location is perfect in being close enough to everything while still being in an area that is not full of other tourists. Sergio has been the best owner we have ever encountered, having a whole book of how to get around Florence, wonderful suggestions for restaurants and entertainment, and checking back with us to make sure everything was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and will be sure to stay here again when next in Florence. Thank you Sergio! -- Moira V.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

I high recommend this apartment. The location just across the river is excellent, away from the crowds

but also less than 10 minutes walk from the historic center. It is near a big supermarket at Via Pisana

and nice restaurants at Via Borgo San Frediano.

The apartment is rencetly renovated and fully equipped with new apliances and new furniture. The kitchen is

very functional and the bedroom is comfortable with enough wardrobe and drawers space. The bathroom

is spacious compared to a european bathroom.

Everything was impeccable and cleaned!

Sergio was very helpful, always willing and able to assist with anything.

El mix ideal

  • 5 of 5

Desde el momento en que reservamos, la calidez, gentileza e información recibida vía mail por parte del señor Sergio Testi nos sorprendió gratamente. Llegamos a SM Novella en otro horario al acordado y el señor Sergio no pudo estar, pero su Señora nos recibió en el apartamento con la misma calidez y gentileza. Una mesa con frutas, agua y otras atenciones para nosotros. El apartamento es tal como lo publican. Con todas las comodidades necesarias. Desde ahí recorrer Florencia es bien simple. Caminar hasta el centro, donde además de disfrutar la ciudad, encontramos restaurantes variados, los que también hay cercanos al apartamento. Nuestras vacaciones en Florencia fueron excelentes y además con días soleados.

Recomendamos en un ciento por ciento este apartamento por todo lo indicado. En nuestro caso toda la estancia fue realmente perfecta.

Agradecemos a los dueños del apartamento, Sergio y Sra. por su atención y consideración.
