Benedetta was always gracious, quick to respond to our emails, and able to accommodate our housing needs even as they fluctuated many times before our arrival. The apartments suited the needs of young and old, including two young toddlers and kids of all ages. They were very welcoming of our large family group. She gave us a very helpful orientation to amenities near us, and advice on what to see in the city. The apartments were spacious and modern, and very comfortable. Any return visit we make to Florence will include a stay in this apartment.
Our group of 21 had the sole use of this property. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. Benedetta and Renzo were delightful hosts, very helpful and easy to contact. We all enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you both for making us so welcome.
We had a wonderful time! Clean and the staff is the best !! Taking the train to Florence was easy !

My husband and I researched this vacation for a couple of months before we came across Key to Florence. We were a large group of family and close friends and we wanted it to be just right and all together, so at Key to Florence they could accommodate us beautiful restored large apartments for all of us (we were a group of 24 persons!!!). From the time that I first contacted Renzo & Benedetta, our hosts, they were always prompt with replies. By the time we arrived , I felt like them were an old friends, they were always willing to guide us to the best restaurants, making reservations for us when we didn't realize that Mondays many places were closed, and recommending places to visit and how best to get there. The apartments were well furnished, clean and modern. The Air-Conditioning was a luxury!!! The position of the property is idyllic. I cannot say enough about Renzo and especially his daughter. They were very helpful, gracious hosts!
I spent 4 nights at Key to Florence property with my family. The apartment that we rented was perfect for us! the rooms are comfortable , very very clean, and recently updated. Renzo and his daughter were extremely hospitable and accommodating, they helped with our
every need, whether it was directions, restaurant recommendations, special places to visit, shopping ... they also have left for us in the apartment a guide to Florence written by themselves that help you to avoid tourist-traps ! The location is perfect for visiting Florence, but still relaxing far from the noise ! We hope to visit it again and there wouldn't be any other place we would rather stay when in Florence!
