Central, compact and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for one person, comfortable for two. Surrounded by lovely shops and inviting restaurants. Easy access to all points of Florence. Saturday night can be a bit noisy but being in the middle of the action is worth it.

Convenient yet removed from the bustle

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment, just a few yards off the south end of the Ponte Vecchio. There is a (tiny) lift to take you to the third floor apartment. It's bright and airy, and more than large enough for 2 people and a couple of kids (as an older couple, we didn't try the sofa bed/futon, but it seems unlikely it would fit an adult, never mind two).

We were met promptly and shown all the features of the appropriately-furnished apartment. The street has everything you might need if you plan to cook and/or stay more than a couple of nights, including a self-serve laundry directly across the street. However, in addition, there is a wash/dry/fold service also directly across the street. where for less than 20 Euro a washer-load, you can get same day service and go about your fun.

very nice apartment and well located

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this apartment very much. It is located less than a block from the Ponte Vechio so it is convenient to all the major sites. In five minutes you can be on the other side of the river. The elevator was a plus so we didnt have to walk the stairs if we choose not to. The apartment has plenty of room: A living room, bedroom and galley style kitchen. The bathroom could be a touch larger but was adequate. The kitchen was well equipped. Overall it was a very nice place and we would happily return there.

Perfect place for mom traveling with 17 year old son

  • 5 of 5

We rented a car from Bergamo airport, survived the Milan traffic and tunnel delays coming into Florence (5 hour trip), and eventually found the garage next door using Never Lost. (the garage manager puts your tag number on a "white list" to avoid fines from driving on restricted roads in historic district). (note 30euro per night not included in apartment rate). Found the apartment clean and as pictured: Both the double bed and futon very comfortable, (the living room is tight with the futon pulled out- need to move the table over a bit), AC was helpful in early July, small lift to 3rd floor, Kitchen more than adequate for preparing meals (although we ate out), even had mini kierig type coffee maker, all communication with owner and manager was prompt and helpful, best of all the location! The safe street was quiet and very short walk to Ponte Vecchio Bridge, easy stroll to Boboli Gardens (not so easy hike to Belvedere Fort because of the steep grade uphill-but very easy to find), about 15 min walk to Domo. We looked for restaurants on the other side of bridge, but discovered several better closer to the apartment. Highly recommend the vegetarian restraunt: "5 e Cique" just 2 alleys away recommended by apartment manager (Only place that agreed to serve us at our late arrival time, excellent service and english, best meal in Florence and we are not vegetarian). Extremely happy with our stay here.

Comfortable property in good location near beach and train station.

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment in a good location. Plenty of local produce nearby. Convenient to train station so side trips to Lucca, Pisa and Cinque Terra are easy. Near to the beach. Apartment is well appointed with all your requirements.

Only fault is that parking is only street parking and is not easy!

The apartment, 40 square meters, is located in the historic center of Florence (Firenze), a short walk from the Old Bridge. And 'the ideal place for visiting museums in the morning and in the afternoon and the many world-class shopping; in the quiet limited traffic, everything you need for a memorable stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Near the apartment: Underground parking, laundry, supermarket, pharmacy, several taxi stations, bus stations, grocery stores, wonderful restaurants, historic inns, lounge bar.

My apartment is the ideal choice for a couple or a family who want to find out what the real heart of the Medieval and Renaissance Florence has to offer, including the countless streets and alleys to relive its former glory. In this neighborhood there are shops that have remained unchanged over the years, and restaurants, churches and monuments that will amaze you with their timeless beauty.

The apartment is on the third floor of a building rebuilt in the fifties with a lift, it has been recently renovated to modern standards and features neutral colors where prevails the pure white for all rooms.
