About Marusca

HOSPITALITY & SERENDIPITY

Marusca purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Marusca chose Historic Center

The apartment is on the Bridge Ponte Vecchio in the middle of the tourist area, but it is on 4th floor and it very quite night and day.

What makes this apartment unique

You can enjoy one of the most beautiful monument of the world quietly standing in front of the window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

They were a lovely guest, the apartment has been left in perfect condition.

Thank you very much to stay in my apartment.

Best regards

Alberto and Marusca

Comfortable, quiet apartment in the heart of historic Florence

  • 5 of 5

With a view of Ponte Vecchio right below, yet sound proof windows this place was perfect. We will definitely be back.

Lovely apartment, but communication lacking

  • 4 of 5

This is a well-equipped apartment right beside the Ponte Vecchio. It is perfect for exploring Florence. We enjoyed our stay here and discovering the jewels of Florence.

However, communication at times was lacking with one message taking 6 days for a response. When we checked in, we made arrangements to check-out at a given time. The host said she would meet us in the apartment then. We waited for 10 minutes and then had to leave to catch a train for our onward journey.

Good location. Lift worked well. Bed against the wall. Bathroom very dark and cramped.

  • 3 of 5

We chose this apartment for its location. It doesn't get much better!

Check in was excellent with lots of helpful tips about local services and attractions.

The bed is against the wall which means either climbing over your partner or doing a "bum shuffle". Pillows were too thin for our taste. The shower cubicle is very small.

Two out of three globes were blown in the bathroom making it very dark and us fearful of the third and final globe blowing.

At least two other lamps in the apartment were out of service due to blown globes and many bathroom fittings were loose

In short, a little more attention to detail would be good.

That said, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment to other travellers.

Perfect apartment but lacking communication

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for exploring Florence. It was so easy to walk to most attractions and you are right in the thick of it. The apartment was clean and comfortable with all modern conveniences, including washing machine for those who are away for an extended period.

However, we found that communication with the host was lacking with one message taking 6 days for a response. On departure, we had made arrangements to leave at a given time, but the host didn't arrive and we left 10 minutes after the arranged time because we had a train to catch for our onward journey.

Excellent location, terrific hosts, modern apartment - you'll love it!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. We were greeted by our host who did not waste any time in giving us tips and tricks, and great locations for food, drinks and the local market. The place was easy to find and extremely well located with a great view of the Arno river. The apartment was modern and recently renovated and all had the small amenities one needed to enjoy their stay, down to small details. Our host also went the extra mile in delivering our Uffizi voucher printed ticket on a Saturday night!! Awesome!
