About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

Building of the XVI century completely restored. The apartment has an ancient and valuable ceiling. The height of the ceiling is such that a charming overhead gallery has been created , where there is a comfortable and attractive bedroom. The apartment, set on the second floor (with lift) shows a clever organization of the spaces: the entrance is onto the living room with pull out sofa from which a set of stairs leads to the bedroom (a double bed or two single beds). The nice bathroom with standing shower, the fully equipped kitchen, washing machine ADSL and AC complete this apartment.

Everything I could have wanted

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, well maintained, up-to-date, well equipped. The location was very convenient. I was able to walk to all the sights except Piazzale Michelangelo and the bus for that was just a block away. So it made sightseeing an easy process as I could readily get back to the apartment for food, a rest, or just a break from all the crowds. Even though the apartment is only one floor up, having an elevator was handy for grocery shopping, luggage etc. I stayed for a month and did my food shopping at Conads, on via Natzionale and at Mercanto Centrale. Enrica was a pleasure to deal with, gave me a warm welcome, and was very helpful with tourist information. She was very accommodating to my specific needs making my stay truly enjoyable. I highly recommend this apartment and booking with Enrica.

great location, walking distance to everything, clean

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 6 nights here - within 10 minute walk from train station. It is clean, comfortable and safe apartment. It is older building with minimal sound proofing, so if you're light sleeper, you may want ear plugs as late night or early morning noise might wake you.

Enrica will meet you at apartment to give you keys, so if you don't have phone with you to call her, check that email is working to let her know time of arrival

Florence is great walking city and Enrica's is place to be

I was planning a two week stay in Florence and had many apartments to choose from. I picked this one because of the photos, recommendations, and location. Aside from the location, I was disappointed! The apartment was just okay....a studio with loft bedroom up a metal staircase. The bath was the nice part and looked like it had been newly renovated. Although the apartment was clean, the interior of the building was not, and gave me a bad feeling every time I entered. The host, in general, was not helpful at all and spent about 5 minutes with me when I arrived explaining how to unlock the door and windows. That was it! During my stay, I had a concern about something in the apartment and notified the host. She took offense and denied that my issue existed. I ended up leaving early and checking into a nice hotel, which saved my stay in Florence. Clearly, the host needs to improve her customer service. All in all, I would not recommend this apartment.

Perfect stay at Christmas. Everything you want, in a great location. Enrica is a lovely host.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my daughter and I to enjoy a long stay and experience Christmas in Florence. The kitchen is very easy to use and had everything we needed. Great laundry facilities too. All very clean and neat. Brilliant location for sight-seeing and easy to walk to the train station with luggage. Enjoyed ourselves enormously.

A Gem of an Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment could not be more perfect for our stay in Florence. We were here for 5 days and it could not of been more perfect. Close to shopping, Durmo, Ponte Vecchio along with a fabulous bakery across the street. Great restaurants just steps away. We have been to Florence 4 other times and this has been the best choice of accommodations. Enrica the owner is so warm and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful charming apartment in the best location in Florence

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well decorated, clean, and has a comfortable layout. The bathroom is modern with plenty of nice towels provided and the kitchen is perfect and has everything needed. The loft bedroom is comfortable and has enough storage for clothing. Overall this is a perfect place to stay and Enrica was a wonderful host. She was willing to meet us after a late arrival into Florence and allowed us to keep our luggage in the apartment for a late departure. The only small complaint is that the sofa bed, even though it is really easy to fold out, is uncomfortable.
