  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location, amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: I am really disappointed reading these comments. My main goal is to welcome and give always the best service to my guests. I have always tried to meet Rosemary’s needs, even though she has always been very pretentious, disrespectful and despising and complaining about Italian people and amenities and services provided in this country. Actually we have always been willing and helpful during her stay: - Twice she got sick and we asked if she needed medical assistance (she answered She preferred to suffer instead of being examined by an Italian doctor) - Once my dad offered lunch in a fish restaurant - My boyfriend and I moved her luggage and all her staff with my car from her previous house - I rushed to help when also some mosquitos were harassing her. - After she had seen personally the apartment, and having said it was perfect, she sent me several lists of extra things she wanted me to buy for her, i.e. an extra blanket to cover her legs while seated on the sofa, a towel for the dog, a sieve for spelt, a “special” dish for when she cooked the omelet to flip it, a grocery cart (which has even disappeared…) and all this has been bought to make her happy!!! Actually I could not stop refurbishing works in public offices “Ministero delle Opere Pubbliche” in the building next to mine. I understand the inconvenience she went through for a week out of 5 months, but the workers were respecting schedule and procedures established by law. Just to be clear, Italian law for the environment establishes that during winter months, temperature public and private buildings must not raise above 22°C. When my dad went, there were 25 and this was not enough to her. As far as people she decided to invite to spend holidays staying in the apartment without informing me, I may only say that I am the manager of this property and I have the duty to be informed and aware and to register any person sleeping and staying in the house (as provided by law). There are rules to be followed. Apart from the price point: the renting price is per person. Renting for 1 person and staying in 2 o more is not correct. We have been told by other guests she has not been respectful, often forgetting the doors of the elevator open stopping it, watching TV too loud, and the dog peeing inside near the main door downstairs. No way to communicate with her by phone calls and sms...she never aswer. Actually, I won’t write any further but I would not recommend Rosemary as a guest.

Wonderful place in Florence.

Really convenient to everything.

Piazza Duomo is right around the corner.

The cathedral is really beautiful and one of the most magnificent I have ever seen.

Tip: Go right and through the piazza to the central market and all of the leather shops.

There is also a (full service) supermarket right across the street. Which is really great for water and beer runs.

This apartment is really quiet and cozy.

Angela is really great. She even ordered me a cab when I was ready to return.

I will certainly return and do recommend this place......

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.
