|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
We enjoyed the apartment and the location immensely. We used the patio area every night of our short stay. The living room and bedroom were spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal. There was some night time street noise from the Eurominimarket which seemed to be a popular hang out for the locals but that was mostly on Sat night.
We'll be back to Florence and hope to stay here again.
We felt immediately at home in the spotlessly clean and well maintained Casa del Cibreo. The apartment is an authentic Florentine building from the 1500's(!), but has been thoughtfully renovated to include modern conveniences such as comfortable seating and bedding, a well stocked and updated kitchen, a contemporary bathroom with adequate storage and hot water, and a lovely terrace overlooking the Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio (farmers market.) The market is fantastic- delicious and fresh produce, bread, meats and cheeses, etc. The apartment location is ideal - outside of the touristy bustle but you can easily and quickly walk to the heart of Florence. The neighborhood itself has many excellent restaurants, cafes and enotecas. Riccardo was extremely helpful and pleasant during our stay and Giulia was easily accessible throughout the booking process. We loved our time in Florence and highly recommend Casa del Cibreo.
Spacious, well-appointed 1-BR apartment in a less-touristy but wonderful stone-and-brick neighborhood in old Florence, less than 10 minutes walking distance from the Duomo. Lovely brick terrace overlooks huge daily morning market.
This apartment was ideal for our 3 day stay in Florence. It is very comfortably furnished and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The neighborhood was very charming and not as crowded as central Florence. There are great restaurants nearby and the market directly behind the apartment was a great place to pick up fresh produce and meats for meals at the apartment. The terrace was great for breakfasts and just a place to relax with a glass of wine. Great location within walking distance to all the sites in Florence. Ricardo was very helpful in answering questions and getting a cab for us when we departed. I would highly recommend Casa del Cibreo for your stay in Florence!
Looking back at our month in various localities in Italy, this apartment in Florence where we spent ten days ranks near the top. Its location is extremely convenient for walking to all the treasures of Florence. In addition, a huge mercato is perfectly located across the street for morning coffee and fresh croissants. We also picked up a daily supply of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and freshly made Italian dishes to enjoy on the spacious outdoor terrace at the apartment. The apartment was quiet, thanks to triple pane windows and shutters; the bedroom was spacious and had good storage. The bathroom was quite adequate but oddly located off the living room rather than the bedroom. The living room sofa really needs to be replaced with something that doesn't slide out from under you when you sit on it. The entry to the apartment is via a dungeon like stairway, which may not be all that unusual in an ancient city, but takes some getting used to, as does the system of locks that take awhile to jiggle open. More disappointing was the lack of orientation that others had written about in their reviews and that we looked forward to and needed. Riccardo had a very tight schedule during our arrival and departure and provided only the most cursory comments about where to find what in the neighborhood. Consequently, we spent our first two days in Florence engaged in much fruitless searching for grocery, banks, trash deposit and restaurants. Once oriented, we were quite happy, but wish we hadn't had to waste so much time figuring things out.
We arrived at this apartment after spending a week in Stresa and a week in Rapallo so there was a bit of culture shock initially. All in all, this is a nice apartment in a good area. It's close to all the sites, bank, grocery, etc. We arrived around 2pm so the market was just closing and was cause for concern initially due to the noise, trash, etc. By 3pm everything was packed up and the street cleaners had made the area spotless. Around 8pm a van arrived at the market to unload a piano and at 9pm, a concert started with a guy playing the piano and singing Sinatra tunes for a couple hours. A nice surprise!! As far as the apartment interior goes, it's spacious enough for two, but would be tight quarters for 4 adults. The bathroom is larger than most we encountered and the bedroom is nice sized. With the windows open, there is a nice breeze through the unit. Two items I would be critical of were the sleeper sofa which had no cushions to sit on, only the mattress covered with a bedspread and steel frame somewhat exposed. The other would be the refrigerator which was quite small with a freezer the size of two ice cube trays (to those of us from the states, ice can be important). The door lock could be irritating at times as well. The large terrace was very nice and we spent a lot of time there in the mornings and evenings. If we were to return to Florence, I would certainly consider staying here again.
Situated in the large 1400's building near the piazza Ghiberti and is surrounded by additional stalls outside. Here you will find the full array of fresh foodstuffs to create a real Italian table, from pasta to meat and fish.., and of course lots of fresh vegetables. Many Florentine's come to this market weekly and you will also find clothes and general household goods. There is some discussion as to whether this market or the Central Market (Mercato Centrale) provides the freshest and cheapest products, however from a visitors point of view that doesn't really matter. In the covered market you will find one of the best little Trattoria restaurants that I've ever eaten in called 'Rocco'. Real Italian cuisine at remarkably cheap local prices! Here you can grab a real part of Florentine life but expect to be served quick and don't hang around they will want the table! The market is open daily from 07.00 to 14.00 accept Sunday.
