Perfect location for a visit to Florence

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family of five. It has everything we needed: kitchen, washing machine, and beds for all three teenagers. We only had a quick breakfast in the kitchen, but it is fully equipped if you need to make your own meals. The restaurants in Florence were too amazing for us to try and make our own. The location was perfect, we were able to walk everywhere from the apartment to visit all the sights, and felt very safe. The apartment was very clean and beds were comfortable. Andrea was extremely easy to work with and met us at the apartment to explain how everything worked. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone with families. There are three flights of stairs that you have to take to reach the apartment, but we didn't feel it was a problem. Keep in mind if your luggage is heavy. The staircase is wide and provides plenty of space to stop and rest if needed.

Great location, beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights with 4 people in this beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence. The location is great if you are there to see the sites and is close to great restaurants and the train station. It was very clean and spacious. We didn't have any issues and everything was as described on the site. Andrea and Francesca were very nice to work with and made us very comfortable with their apartment and were very helpful with any questions we had. We would definitely stay there again.

Centrally located

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and well maintained. The location is conveniently located in the heart of Florence, within walking distance to most of the sites. There is a grocery store within a 1-2 minutes from the apartment. The host (Andrea) was very punctual and thoroughly explain the details of the apartment's functionality upon arrival. The descriptive listing is accurate with regards to location, layout, and amenities. Do keep in mind the apartment sits on the top floor of the building, so there are several flights of stairs ascending to the 3rd floor (something to keep in mind if you are not in good health or have very young children), for us it was ok as we had 2 active young boys who raced up to the top floor. We did not utilize the attached loft in the unit, as we felt it was a bit too warm to sleep at night. The apartment was also close to the train station, which is a positive, if you plan on using the trains to travel to other destinations. There are many restaurants and shops just steps away from the building entrance.

Overall, good apartment centrally location in the heart of Florence.

Lindo y muy bien equipado

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento es de muy buen tamaño para un grupo de 5 personas. Esta excelentemente bien ubicado, en la mitad de la parte histórica de Florencia, a 100 metros del Domo y literalmente a 10 minutos de la Estación Santa María Novelle. El apartamento esta muy bien equipado con wifi, TV, cocina completa y lavadora de ropa. Las camas son muy cómodas. Muy limpio y bien mantenido y conservado. El baño es de muy buen tamaño y el agua es deliciosa. A 40 metros hay un buen supermercado para comprar las cosas básicas, agua, leche, bebidas, vinos, frutas, legumbres, artículos de aseo, pan y quesos. Muy bueno y preciso muy buenos. Alrededor del apartamento hay restaurante de excelente calidad y precios promedio. Tiene una vista hacia el domo y la torre del campanario. Los arrendadores son muy amables y nos estaban esperando para entregarnos el apartamento.
