Jaw dropping beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived for a week at this apartment in Florence completely unaware of the beauty we had discovered. We are from Canada where a 100 year old building is ancient. The 14 foot ceilings covered with beautiful paintings took our breath away. The apartment provided us with a unique experience that we all will remember forever. The restoration of this space is magnificent. The location is also incredible. We walked everywhere as it is right in the middle of this city. It is not quiet, given its location but that did not diminish our time there. I would highly recommend this as an experieence of a life time. The Porters

Absolutely beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Borgo Pinti 33 for 9 days in early April and would say it is the nicest apartment we have ever rented in Europe.

The décor is stunning and with the frescoes on the ceiling, you feel that you are staying in a work of art.

The location is also amazing, within walking distance of all major attractions, fabulous restaurants and shops.

The apartment has all the amenities that you would want for a very comfortable stay. The kitchen is well equipped so we were able to "eat in" a few times which is lovely.

Street noise was the only issue during the night , as the apartment is on the main level and the sound reverberates due to the narrowness of the street. We had taken ear plugs and I would advise that to anyone planning a stay!

Overall the experience was amazing and we would stay there again!

Highly recommended stunning apartment more lovely than photos.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the photos online and were even more impressed once we arrived. Beautiful design with mix of modern amenities in a historical building. It offered more space than we needed but we enjoyed returning to the lovely home each evening.

Definitely a "one-of-a-kind" property with the significant historical ceiling frescos!

  • 5 of 5

This well-located and unique property is well-worth a consideration for any traveler who is looking for something unique. Florence is a "walking city" and the location on Borgo Pinti is within a 15-20 minute walk to most places in the city. The property's physical features with the historical artwork are complemented by modern facilities. The "layout" of the property makes it definitely different from a normal hotel or apartment which adds to the charm of the property. Anyone interested in the property needs to realize that one of the "bedrooms" is a skillfully designed division of a larger room so if total privacy is a concern, that could be an issue. The property was very clean and well-maintained and I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend it; one suggestion would be a list of local recommended restaurants, markets, etc., for those renters who don't enjoy "exploring" the neighborhood (or who are "directionally-challenged").

Vacationing at Residenza Borgo Pinti

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a week in Florence visiting my daughter, and I couldn't have been more pleased with a choice of a place to stay during my

first visit to the city. On the one hand, it was a gorgeous sample of Florentine art and history. On the other hand, it was all you could ask

for, for comfort, efficiency, and location. The walk to the city center wasn't bad at all, and two favorite restaurants were just across our street.

I'd love to visit again, any time.
