|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
New apartment located in the heart of the historical center, in a characteristic street a few steps from the Duomo. Comfort, refinement and strategic location will allow you to better enjoy Florence immersed in its magical atmosphere. Conveniently located in the historic center. Perfect for 2-4 people. High ceilings and parquet floors, and has recently been beautifully renovated. It is located on the 3rd floor and consists of a living / dining room with very large sofa and a sofa bed for two and TV, a modern kitchen and equipped, a double bedroom and silent with a large closet, a bathroom with shower and input.
The apartment was wonderful, literally down the street from the Duomo. The building has an elevator and is centrally located in Florence. We walked everywhere, including the train station, and never felt like we needed a taxi or bus. Great restaurants nearby, including the Crazy Cage around the corner which is only open for lunch (tell Andreas high for us!). Angela, who we coordinated the apartment with, was excellent. Excellent in answering questions and responding before booking, and excellent at check-in and check-out. Plus, the apartment was well stocked with dishes, coffee and the Italian espresso/coffee pot, and spices. I like the expresso pot so much I bought one to bring home with me. There is a small grocery store nearby, and everything in Florence is within reach. Angela was also able to recommend a tour company a couple of blocks away (there is also one on the same block) and their service/tours were excellent. We did a tour of the Duomo with the three of us and two other couples, which was well worth it to avoid the lines and have a truly expert guide. We also did a winery tour with the same company. The apartment is one bedroom and one bath, and there is at least one futon in the living room. There is a second sofa also, but we never checked to see if it was a futon or not. Overall a very comfortable apartment in a great location with a superb hostess. Highly recommend.
3 Pearls was just right for our stay in Florence. Angela helped us with.transporatation to.the train terminal, and good places to eat. The apartment was in a good place and walking distance to all sites. I would stay here again & recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a quiet apartment with all amenities you would need.
The 3 Pearls was a great place with easy walking to all museums and attractions. Angela was helpful with all information and transportation to & from train terminal.
We had a wonderful stay in Angela's apartment! The location is fantastic, walking distance from everything you want to do in Florence. Also, very quiet. It is huge - more than enough space for the 4 of us. Angela is a wonderful host- available, helpful, and a great communicator. This is a 3rd floor apartment, have to walk up a short flight of stairs to reach the elevator.
I am a Canadian teacher who rented this apartment for 5 months with my Maltese dog. I found this place to have several issues and inconveniences. Angela and her father, owners of this apartment, are very ungrateful, ungracious, discourteous, and unappreciative hosts.
Angela did not know how the washing machine and oven worked and I was told to read the manual to figure it out.
During my stay she never once sent me an e-mail or phoned asking if everything was alright and to give her a call if I ever needed help or anything. The only time I heard from her was a day or two before the rent was due asking if she could stop by at a certain time and the day so she could collect.
No blankets were supplied even though I asked and I had to borrow 2 from a friend of mine that lives in Florence.
Her father told me not to raise the thermostat above 20 because NO ONE in Florence does. Temps this winter did dip to 4 degrees C many nights.
A week and a half after arrival construction work began next door and continued for 10 days beginning at 7:30 a.m. with jackhammering, banging, drilling, etc., which shook the walls and scared my dog. I was ready to move out but was told it would stop stop shortly.
When my friend arrived from Barcelona to stay with me for 8 days she was charged each night of her stay. Angela did not warn me about this even though I had informed her 2 months prior to her visit. She placed me in a very embarrassing situation. My friend's sister and brother-in-law rented the apartment next to me so I even brought Angela business.
On 3 separate occasions there was no water in the apartment. Couldn't even flush the toilet.
I left to spend the Easter holidays down in Rome with friends and cousins. I informed Angela about this on Easter Thursday and told her I would contact her as soon as I got back. Easter Saturday I received a text message from her stating that she had made an appointment for a computer technician to check the router and he would be at the apartment the following Friday. From Saturday until Wednesday she sent 6 messages. I wrote stating she could let him in supervised by her. She kept harassing me because the rent money was due Easter Sunday and I was not there. She told me she did not have an extra key to enter. Of course this was not true. I returned Wednesday for her benefit. There were only 19 days left before my departure.
There are cheaper and better places to stay in the centre.
Next time when I visit Florence, I will rent this place again. If you're visiting Florence and want a centrally located apartment, you can't go wrong.
In the heart of Florence, you will be just steps from the Duomo and all the monuments, museums and churches of the old town. But Florence is not only this, but also a great starting point to explore the surrounding hills and enriched with eno-gastronomic and wonderful nature walks.
