Great Apartment right in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this very comfortable apartment. It was in the perfect location right in Piazza Signoria with views of the Doumo and Giotto's Campanile from the bedroom skylight upstairs. The bed was extremely comfortable and the entire apartment was clean and in working order, and look forward to reserving this apartment again. Thanks again Lorenza and Pedro!

Wonderful stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Lorenza met us at the apartment last summer, showed us all the amenities of the apartment & suggested places to eat & see during our stay in Florence. The apartment is in such a central part of the city. It was so easy to get to everything we wanted to see & do. Everything in the apartment was excellent & in good working order. It was delightful to open the window & hear the cathedral bells all day long. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in Oct 2015 for our honeymoon. Lorenza was a great hostess and we found the apartment to be perfect for our needs. The location is amazing and we spent most nights sitting in the piazza, sharing a bottle of Proseco, and people watching. Much better than the touristy ($$$) sidewalk cafes that line the piazza! The upstairs loft was not a problem for us - my husband is over six feet tall and just took extra care not to bang his head up there. Be careful leaving the window open- there is no screen and we did get several mosquito bites as a result! Overall, very happy with the location and apartment. The noise from the piazza wan't an issue for us- it was very minimal since the window does not face the square directly. Make sure you try Mangia Pizza- nearby and the best pizza ever.

Great location, good communication and a cute interior

  • 5 of 5

Communication during the rental process was very good, which was appreciated. We didn't meet Lorenza or Ingrid, but the guy who received us was there at the appointed time and was very pleasant. Also, thank goodness for the building having a lift. It made life a lot easier.

The apartment was well-stocked and the location was perfect The apartment (and window) was to the back of the piazza so that while you did get some street noise, you avoided the loud late-night crowds. I do wish more Italian apartments embraced screens for windows - we were in the sweet spot where an open window would have been really pleasant but we were plagued by mosquitoes (same story for Venice - we were very bumpy by this point in the trip.)

The sleeping area was up a small and steep flight of stairs, and once you were up there the ceiling height was very low, so our poor six-footer had to be very careful about hitting his head on the ceiling.

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the entire month of March 2015 here. The hosts, Lorenza and Ingrid, were very gracious and helpful, meeting me at the apartment at the agreed-upon check-in time, and available to answer any questions throughout my visit. The apartment is clean, bright and in the best possible location. I appreciated the fact that there was a lift, and also that the building is very safe and secure. I was so pleased with this rental, that I plan to return again in a few months. Thank you, Ingrid and Lorenza, for allowing me to stay at this lovely apartment!
