Lovely Views from an Apartment on a Main Street

  • 4 of 5

Three of us spent 6 nights in this bright and clean little apartment. The loft worked well for our 18 year old daughter but would work much better for a shorter person as it is not full height to stand up. I am 5'2" and had to bend my head a bit. It is more ideal for a younger child but our daughter didn't complain as she only slept there because we spent most of our time exploring the lovely city of Florence. We were within easy walking distance of everything and we loved the little neighbourhood in which the apartment is situated. Our host met us upon arrival to go over things and had a book prepared of things to do and places to eat which was very nice. She provided us with maps and attraction pamphlets as well. We didn't eat in the apartment but the accommodations would have easily worked for preparing food and eating in. There is a nice grocery store a short walk away which was handy. Our host also helped us obtain a very reasonable rate for a parking space in a garage nearby so that we could make day trips out when we wanted. There is a small elevator in the building which was handy when we had walked all day and needed to go up 5 levels to the apartment. We often had gelato around the corner and ate at Gecko down the street and we were greeted in a very friendly manner at both establishments. We would recommend the apartment for location although getting to it by car to drop off luggage is a bit of a challenge without the aid of a GPS with all the one way streets in the area. Although it is in the city it is quiet and the main room is spacious. We were comfortable although I found the bed a little hard for my liking but my husband didn't feel the same way. There is very ample closet space for such a small apartment which is great for longer stays. We used the air conditioner as it was hot in July and we found the system worked very well indeed. The wifi was very reliable which was important to us during our stay. The only odd thing we experience was we always noticed a bit of a musty smell when we entered the apartment but it didn't seem to bother us once we were settled in. We put it down to being an old building as all buildings are in that part of the city. We would recommend the apartment for 3 people. It was sunny in the mornings and otherwise cozy and comfortable.

Perfect apartment to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the apartment, Alessandra made us feel welcome.

She helped us settle in, show us around the apartment and how everything thing works.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you need.

It's the perfect home away from home. The location is great, you have restaurants,

supermarket, shops near by. Walking distance to the center of town.

We highly recommend this apartment. We had a great time in Florence.

Perfect place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying here. Great location just a short 5-10 minute walk to the heart of Florence. Apartment pictures are accurate with a beautiful view, comfortable bedroom, living room and kitchen. We went during the summer and the air conditioning (for extra fee) worked amazing. We had two other friends with us and although the loft was more for smaller people it was still comfortable for one. The owners were very helpful and we would definitely stay there again when we are back to Florence.

Loved this apartment! Large, light w/ great views!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend a month in historical downtown Florence.! The apartment had everything we needed including full size appliances. It ws large and beautifully appointed. Alessandra was welcoming, charming and helpful. She even provided snacks and wine for our first night. The garret is a cozy hide away with a desk and bed for one. There is a lovely view out every window-Michelangelo piazza, St. Miniato and Belvedere. The neighborhood is residential and quiet, but lively with young people in the evenings and weekends. The neighborhood restaurants are superb and non touristy. We walked to all the attractions, but there is also good bus transportation. Highly recommended!!!

This apartment is magical. It was large with everything we could want. An elevator makes the 4th floor a snap and because you are so high, the light and the view is magnificent. The washing machine and well stocked kitchen made it feel like home. The location was just one bridge from the Ponte Vecchio so walking everywhere was very doable. A large grocery store was at at the Ponte Vecchio so we had all the wine and food we needed.

Alessandra made us very comfortable. She had no problem with us arriving earlier than the normal check in time so when we were thru with the long flight, we had a home to go to immediately. She even greeted us with a wonderful breakfast, What a blessing! Later she helped me track down a specific purse on my shopping list.

You will love staying here.

My Home in Florence

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived at this bright and airy apartment I felt comfortable and at home. It was perfect for visiting my son who is studying in Florence. He loved the loft with his own private bathroom and washing machine. The view was beautiful from the large windows and small balcony. There was everything I needed to cook dinner and breakfast and a great market is located nearby. The owners were very easy to contact and available when I arrived. They even left us a good bottle of wine and breakfast pastries. The location was perfect, far enough away from the thick of the tourist area to be quiet but close enough to walk everywhere. The elevator was very helpful for taking up our luggage and after long days of walking all over the city. I would stay here again if I return to Florence.

The apartment is in the historic center of Florence. With a short walk to all the attractions of our beautiful city. To give you an idea from your apartment in 5 minutes you can walk to the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery, while in 15 minutes Piazza del Duomo and the Holy Spirit.

The neighborhood of San Niccolò is located in the area called 'Oltrarno', known as the District of Artisans and antiquarians.

St. Nicholas is a charming small square with a beautiful church. Here is lined with cafes and restaurants where you can sit (even outdoors if the weather permits ..) and taste the typical products of our kitchen.

Porta San Miniato you to the Piazzale Michelangelo and Forte Belvedere.

In May, do not miss the old Rose Garden.

San Niccolò with its charm with its colors and its atmosphere will steal your heart!
