Why Janine Dickinson chose San Giovanni
My dear friend Josie & I bought this apartment in 2000 because we fell in love with Florence over many years & finally realised our dream to live a Florentine life. Over this time we have been thrilled to share the feeling of being a Florentine with our guests, who come back time & again. Some of our guests come every year & many truly feel it is theirs too.
What makes this Apartment unique
Some of the things I love most about the apartment are: the sense of belonging - when the tourists go home at night the city is yours. I love being able to put my head out the bedroom window, look to the right & see Cosimo de Medici on his great charger, in Piazza della Signoria. I love Daniela's glorious fruit shop right at our door.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The owner was amazing. Jan even kept me up to date with what was going on around the places like Siena where the floors in the cathedral were open to the public, which I did not know.
very central, very clean and Rosemary the housekeeper very polite and helpful
Thanks so much Karen. It was lovely to have you and I am so glad you all enjoyed your time in Florence and surrounds. I really enjoy helping with trip-planning - it's a way of putting a lifetime of excuses for being in Italy, to good use! Warmest good wishes. Jan
Absolutely fantastic experience!
We were so happy with everything that we will be booking again shortly! This apartment is centrally located in Florence and is walking distance from most, if not all, major attractions. We had an amazing time! Janine (owner) provided amazing customer service and the checkin process (Samantha) was a piece of cake. I would give this location 6 out of 5 stars if I could! Thank you for everything!!!
Thanks so much Mary. It was lovely to have you as a guest and I have just seen the confirmed booking for your next visit! I'll look forward to it and hope there will be many more visits during your time in Italy. All the best. Jan
Jan is a fantastic communicator, from beginning to end! The apartment is quite charming and very authentic! The location is amazing, walking distance to anywhere you'd want to visit while in Florence! The local contacts that she has caring for the room are easily accessible. Rosemary was great while we were in town!
Thanks for taking the time to do a review Anthony and for your kind words. I love the contact I have with our guests and I'm very happy that you have great memories of Florence.Warmest good wishes. Jan
Had a great stay - super place with loads of character and it felt like someone's lovely home. All the life of a place someone has lived in for years.
To get to the main bedroom you have to walk through the second bedroom - so if you get up and go to the kitchen or bathroom you have to go through it. not ideal and not super clear from the listing, but also not a massive deal (just best be prepared for it as it might not be particularly nice if it is two couples)
Beautiful and comfortable
Ideal place to stay in Florence. Manager gave us lots of information about the sights and transportation. The apartment is large, had DVDs to watch and had air conditioning (helpful when Florence got to 100 degrees). A market across the street and the Duomo and Uffizi just blocks away.
Thanks Randy. It is nice of you to take the time to do a review. I'm so pleased that you had a lovely time in Florence. I know the heat was awful that week and I'm glad it didn't spoil your experience/ All the best. Jan
Large and the best possible location
We were astounded by the apartment and the location. Every thing is just out side you’re door. Great host.
Thanks Guy. It was nice of you to do a review. I'm so glad you were happy in Florence and in the apartment. All the best
Gorgeous medieval surroundings. The Uffizi is only 50m away. Gallleries, museums, cafes, restaurants & bars. No traffic.
