Stunningly beautiful apartment in an ideal location. Recommended for any and all kinds of travellers

  • 5 of 5

Grazianio was a very friendly host. His recommendations for food and drinks in the area were without fail, perfect. The apartment itself blew me away. Amazing architecture (no coincidence given the profession of our host), spacious, comfortable, air conditioned, with a traditional, Italian feel, complete with tiled floors and wooden beams across the ceiling. The location is amazing, a 5 minute walk from Ponte vecchio, on the non-touristy side of the bridge. This allowed for easy access to the heart of the city, without being surrounded by tourists. Also, right next to a charming square with several authentic Italian restaurants mainly serving locals, as well as the best pizza in Florence down a side street. Public transport is easy, with the bus from the main station dropping you off outside the door. When next in Florence, I wouldn't bother to look elsewhere. Thanks Graziano for an amazing stay!

An excellent convenient place to stay in Florence

  • 4 of 5

Graziano and Stephania were very welcoming hosts and we found the apartment very nicely converted in an old building and well suited to our needs for a 4 day visit. Late night revellers returning home disturbed us after midnight on Friday night but otherwise we found the neighbourhood a good part of Florence to be in, with convenient shops close by.

Clean & great shower, but no WiFi!

  • 4 of 5

Owner very nice, apartment was clean. Wonderful shower. Location close enough to what we wanted to do. Beds, not the best mattresses, but it was only 4 nights.

I misread the property description, and only when we arrived, realized there was NO WIFI! Since we were traveling from the USA, this was the only means of communication with our families back home. So, the option was a wine bar a short distance from the property. When you are tired from walking all day, and just want to relax and share your day with loved ones, you really miss wifi in a comfortable setting. Even the convent we stayed at in Assisi had wifi.

Next time I will make sure wifi is available!

Owner's Response: The mattresses are new and cleaned because they have been buied recently. Anyway we will change them as soon as possible. I understand the problem of no wifi in the apartment. I think that in the Assisi convent the owners pay an internet connection, and then there isn't an additional cost for wifi. I live far to the apartment, so for me internret wifi would be an additional cost. Anyway I'll solve the problem quickly, so if you want to return, you will found wifi. Today, 1 May 2017, I've exchanged the mattresses. Today, 11 June 2017, I've installed WIFI.

Perfectly quiet apartment in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here in October and it was a lovely place to stay. We used to live in Florence, so it is like coming home for us, and we love the location. The Oltrarno is a great place to be, away from the crowds and with delicious restaurants. You are very close to Santo Spirito but don't hear the noise and it's a nice walk across the bridge to the center.

Graziano was very kind, met us at the apartment to show us around and left us alone for the rest of our stay (though he was available if/when we needed him). He even left beer and water in the fridge for us.

We loved being on the ground floor, because the last apartment we had to haul our luggage up many flights of stairs, although this building does have an elevator. There was no problem with noise being on ground level. Graziano did leave an internet key for our stay, which was great, although I work remotely from my laptop so I did have to charge it a few times.

There is no washing machine, but we got hand wash laundry soap and did our wash in the bidet :) When in Italy right! There was a drying rack so it was no problem actually.

I would recommend this for a nice stay, and my friend who lives in Florence even thought it would be a great place to live!

Quaint apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

A really nice apartment in the old part of Florence. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Easy walking to Florence's main attractions. A bonus was a fruit shop next door. Graziano met us at the apartment and explained the facilities thoroughly. He provided excellent visitor information. We had a very pleasant 5 days in Florence and would recommend it to others.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

I have just arrived home from a wonderful 4 nights in this beautiful apartment. On arrival our host Graziano made us feel very welcome and at home . Graziano gave us tips on supermarket and good food close to the apartment. What I loved was the lovely hot water in the shower. After a full day running my feet off a hot shower is more than welcome . The apartment is very neat and clean. The bed comfortable. Thank you Graziano, we will be back. This apartment is highly recommend. It is within walking distance of all attractions.
