Great Unit right across from the Market

  • 5 of 5

Nice unit with AC. AC was very important in July. This unit would be great for 2 couples. The bedrooms are spacious, but the common area is not great for hanging out, but who stays in the room that much when in Florence. Great Price Great Location!!

Lorenzo apartment worked very well for us!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Lorenzo for 8 nights in late October 2016. The apartment is in an excellent location. A few minutes walk to the train station made it easy to take day-trips to Siena and other locations. The market across the street was an excellent source of groceries for our simple breakfasts, and was fun to explore. All the highlights of Florence were within 15 minutes walk. Two bedrooms worked just right for the 3 of us. The kitchenette was small but very adequately supplied. Olive oil, salt and pepper were provided, also laundry detergent and dish-washing soap. It was nice to have a washing machine. There was no dryer, but a folding drying rack worked fine. The owner Gabriele was very responsive to questions and we really had no problems at all. The tiny balcony was not really useful and the only area for sitting was at the table. Still, we were very happy with the Lorenzo, it was very clean, with good linens, and it served our needs very well. The price was very reasonable. I would definitely consider staying there again. One note: to reach the apartment you climb up 37 stairs, not the 26 stated in the property description. Some of the photos in the listing description were not from the Lorenzo but from other apartments. Its character is very rustic, and that is one of the things we liked about it. Gabriele provided a folder with information about the apartment, lists of nearby restaurants (there are many), and maps of the city center. We had dinner twice at the Vecchio Mercato, just a few doors down the street and found it to be very good! All in all, Gabriele was very helpful and the Lorenzo was a good place to stay.

Wonderful Historic Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It was so nice to feel the history of the building. It was very clean and well set up for all our needs. We had all the cooking supplies and dishes to prepare breakfast every morning and could have prepared more meals if we would have liked. The bedrooms were very nice and the bathroom was great. The shower was large and the water pressure was very good, which is not always the case in Italy.

When you walked out the front door of the building you were literally directly across the street from the front door of the Central Market. The market was so awesome. We purchased cured meats and cheeses, fruit, bread and wine. Upstairs was a number of restaurants. Beyond that, Florence is such a great city with so much history and so many incredible sites to see, which the apartment is close to. On weekends there is a huge market nearby that is lots of fun.

We would highly recommend this apartment. Also, the owner, Gabriele, was very nice and helpful. Thanks, Gabriele.

Amazing location. Spring in bed makes sleeping difficult.

  • 2 of 5

This property is an amazing location. There are shops and restaurants on this block but directly across the street is a huge market. It allows you to shop for produce, meats and cheeses on the ground floor. On the top floor they have Lots of cooked food options. So we really enjoyed the location of the hotel. The price is also great. Shower was hot. washing machine and a line to dry your clothes. Downside to this apartment is the beds. You could trace the coils of all three beds with your finger. It made A very uncomfortable nights sleep.

Zuhause mitten in Florenz

  • 4 of 5

Schöne, gut und umfangreich ausgestattete Wohnung. Sehr zentral gelegen, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten in unmittelbarer Nähe. Für Selbstversorger ist die Markthalle gegenüber ein Eldorado. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit. Sehr empfehlenswert.
