VIA DEI BENCI 7

Located in one of the most charming areas of the centre of Florence,via dei Benci, 7, next to the astonishing square of Santa Croce's church, this apartment has all the features that you would like to have in a property. You'll find it at the first floor of a unique and romantic historical building right in the centre of the city. This flat has been entirely renovated in spring 2009, but the antique charm of the building and of its features has been absolutely conserved in florentine taste , the place offers a lovely view of the alive and beautiful Via dei Benci. The apartment is composed of 1 double bedroom with a queen size bed, 1 luxury bathroom with a shower, and a living room with a convertable queen size bed. The kitchen is open on the dining area with a table for 4 persons and there is wireless internet connection and air conditioning in every room.

The appartament is exceptionally convenient and such a time saver for anyone looking to see most of Florence's sights in a short while; easily , without car, bus or taxi , you can enjoy this wonderful city , all is within max 10 mins walk . This is a prime location for sightseeing and entertaining, the area is vibrant but very safe and has plenty of shops , restaurants and theatres all very close; despite of that it is well equipped with double special windows to protect it from outside noises.

The apartment is also located two blocks far from one of the best italian restaurant: the famous Enoteca Pinchiorri.

We have other properties in the same area , all very close , we can host up to 8 people in two apts in the same block , see also listings 296168 just behind the corner . .

About Donatella landi

My name is Donatella and I was born here in Tuscany. I’m really enthusiastic of my properties in this magnificent historical and cultural heritage such as the city of Florence. We have owned flats in this area since 1997 and we are firmly convinced that everything around has maintained its traditional Florentine style.

I speak English fluently therefore I’m available for any information and advice, in order to give you the best service for your holydays.

We hope that you'll enjoy your stay here and come again.

Cozy apartment in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stop on our tour of Italy to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Communication with Donatella and her team way easy and always very responsive. Klara met us at the apartment on time and was lovely and showed us all of our amenities. The apartment is as cozy and welcoming as the pictures show. It is so conveniently located to all of the sights as well as fantastic food, and gelato. We loved Osteria De'Benci (it's just next door to the apartment) delicious Tuscan dishes.. We loved the drunken pasta best! For a fantastic sandwich to go try Antico Vinaio just a few minutes walk away on Via dei Neri. They open at 11:30 am and they stay open until 10:30 pm. The lines can be long but so worth it! The fresh, hot focaccia and Italian meat, cheese and vegetable...yum! We had the Summer Sandwich and La Diablo but you can choose your own. The guys working there are fun and helpful!! For gelato go around the corner, from the apartment, to Gelateria dei Neri...so good and two flavor scoops for just 1,80 €. We went back everyday to try and figure out which flavor we liked best!

You'll love the convenience of this apartment for your stay in Florence but you will love it even more when you walk in after a long day of sight seeing to your cozy home away from home!

Nice size for two; good location; pictures accurate

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Benci Suite. It was clean and well equipped. The location is convenient without being dead-center in the tourist area. Everything needed is within walking distance including attractions, shopping, and restaurants. We would definitely return to this apartment and have not problems recommending it to friends.

There were only two negatives. 1. There is not a washing machine/dryer "through a sliding door, climbing a little staircase", and 2. The restaurant downstairs played music until 4:00 AM one morning. An updated list of services (grocery, ATM, Laundromat, etc.) with a map would have been useful.

Very central, but very noisy at night

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is well situated within easy walking distance to all the major attractions and restaurants. Like most European apartments it is quite small with a minimum kitchen and tiny bathroom. The unit was clean but the air conditioning did not work, nor did the TV. We were met at the apartment on arrival by a young lady who appeared to be the cleaning lady. She was very nice but her English was limited. We were never contacted by the owner and over the entire 5 day stay. All of this was OK but the non-stop electric drum beat from a nearby discotheque reverberated throughout the apartment all night and made sleep difficult. Groups of young people in the street outside our window could be hard until the early hours of the morning. I realize that any central location is probably going to be noisy but without the "white noise" that would have been provided by a working air-conditioner, I would advise finding an apartment in a less busy neighborhood.

Clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for 5 nights in late August. The location is great, the best in town and not far from all main touristic location. The apartment is very comfortable for 3 people. A/C works very well and WiFi is great. The owner is very accessible and responds quickly to all requests. I highly recommend this apartment.

Great Little Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great location and a good size for a single or couple. Any larger group could be a bit cramped.

We had trouble with the Wifi but Donatella did her best to get it corrected ASAP which was greatly appreciated.

Only thing I would add is that maybe a few more towels could be provided (as we were staying a week), and, it would have been nice to have just a couple kitchen items included, ie.: "starter" coffee, spices, olive oil. I've stayed in lots of other rental apartments and usually there were SOME supplies. Don't expect it here.

As others have said it is a bit noisy as this area has a couple very popular bars. But the windows do a great job of closing off the noise. And thank goodness for the A/C as it was warm during our visit.

Centralized and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was furnished very nicely and had wonderful air conditioning! The location is surrounded by a popular road with bars and restaurants. It is also within walking distance of David and the Dome. A guide met us at the apartment and walked through information with us about the location and provided a booklet full of additional information.
