average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Perfect place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the signoria apartment for tree nights , I think this is the location .close to everything , view from the window is breathtaking . Giulio met us in front the apartment ? We were late and he was very patient . Apartment were perfect for two of us and has everything what you need ,

I would rate4.5 only because the nas was uncomfortable , I think this is the time to change a mattress , and very strong light from the street overnight , overall apparent is excellent ,

If you need exchange the money , read the policy for fee , they take a big % , looking for places . No fee

Perfectly cleaned and great location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was in great shape; cleaned. Giulio received us and left us a lot of information in order to get the best out of Florence. Everything was perfect; I could open my window and listen to the music concert at the Plaza.

The only problem I had was with the apartment above... this lady really enjoyed to walk on heals in the wood floor apartment. Nights were interesting...I had to put ear plugs to help. But this is something external; not easy to control by the host.

I really loved Florence !!!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cozy place! It is in the perfect location! Right next to the Uffizzi and no more than a 20 minute walk from anywhere you'd want to be. All communication was handled very well. We felt taken care of by Gemma and Giulio.

Fantastic location with one of the best views of the square anywhere else.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the train station and took a taxi through town. Quite an experience with the influx of tourists. It is about 10 euro to the place.

Claudia met us out front. She was great in making suggestions for our specific food and viewing interests.

We were excited to have an elevator! It is a studio apartment. The kitchen area and bath area are set up nicely with

plenty of space to move around. The shower was superb. We notified the management that there was not an outlet for the coffee maker that would

work. Hopefully that issue can be resolved. The main room has a pullout bed. When the bed is pulled out there is not much room to squeeze bye in

the event you need to gain access to and from the water closet. There is a big wall cabinet feature that has nothing in it and we made a suggestion that

they should replace it and free up more space. It looks nice, but it is not very functional use of the space. The view from the room is one of the best.

It looks over the square. I just sat up on one of the stools with a glass of wine and enjoyed the tourist watching. The place is centrally located to have

access to the bridge, square, and take the time to visit the Central Market! The Central Market has two floors and go in the morning or early afternoon

because the 1st floor closes at 2. We feel this is one area to be visited more than once. The museum is ok if your into that sort of thing.

We enjoyed out two nights there. I am sure you will too.

I only gave it 4 starts because of the wall cabinet layout that needs to be changed. It is still functional, but could be improved a bit.

Piazza Della Signoria is where you need to be.

  • 5 of 5

Having Perseus and Hercules as neighbors was the best part of my stay. I stopped to appreciate the beauty of each statue several times everyday for five weeks.

Lovely Studio

  • 5 of 5

The day i arrived Gemma was outside the building waiting for me (We had arranged the previous day over the phone-highly recommend getting a cell phone that works in EU) Gemma was wonderful, always available every time i needed something during my four weeks stay.

The sofa bed was made up for my arrival but i only used it the first night as i thought it left very little room to walk in front of it (this may be okay if you only stay for a few days - i did not find it too easy to open and close )

I ended up using one of the two puffs , it easily opened into a twin size (narrower) and i found it very comfortable ,it also left room to move around and walk to the window with that beautiful view of the piazza.

The bathroom is BIG and the kitchen has everything you need minus a microwave but i am pretty sure they will get one ( i suggested they do )

The place is in the middle of everything you want to see just 5 mi from Ponte Vecchio.

I would definitely recommend staying here!
