Greate place to stay for small family.

  • 5 of 5

Great Location with lots of great places to eat close by. Close to town center but not too close. Air conditioning in unit was great and needed for the heat wave during our stay. Exactly as advertised.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is the best I have ever found on one of these sites. First the owner was extremely responsive to us during the booking process and during our stay. I stayed in the Dante with a friend and three of our friends stayed in the Giotti. We all loved our apartments! They were spotless and had everything you could possibly want. The Dante was perfect for us - we were able to do our laundry and we walked into central Florence every day with no trouble. There were several restaurants and a couple of grocery stores very nearby so it was very convenient. The apartment had a wonderful modern kitchen that was fully stocked with very nice new dishes, silverware and every utensil you will need. The bath, also very updated had a shower and a tub - and a bidet! I cannot think of a thing to say bad about it - we just were so happy to be staying there. We had booked an apartment in Rome through Airbnb and it was awful - so we were thrilled to find this exactly as depicted in the photos and description. It is across the river from central Florence but when you are eating pasta and gelato every day it is nice to walk places! You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Adorable and worth the stairs!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely adorable. The kitchen is great. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Not exactly handy to downtown, but a pleasant 25 minute walk to the duomo. The stairs are a bit of a challenge with luggage, but the fellow who met us carried our bags up. Very quiet and well suited for a family...

Comfortable and beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment for one month in May 2015 and fell in love with the place! It was very clean, comfortable and conveniently located, within walking distance to all sites in Florence (takes about 10-15 minutes). The apartment is also located near grocery stores and some excellent restaurants and pubs. The area is very safe to walk around at all hours of the day and night. The unit is cleaned every week with fresh linens and it was very easy to contact the owners, who were excellent hosts, making it a delightful stay! Also worth noting is that the balcony looks over an amazing view of luscious backyards in the area. I highly recommend this apartment to stay in Florence. I felt right at home here during my stay.

Fantastic apartment in beautiful Florence

Fantastic apartment in beautiful Florence

We stayed in the Dante apartment for two weeks in September. Having rented quite a few apartments via VRBO/HOMEAWAY both in Europe and in the USA before, we consider this apartment in Florence one of the best and an excellent value.

The descriptions accurately capture the lay -out and features of this apartment. The property was immaculately clean, it is well appointed. The kitchen has all appliances one needs and a large table for up to 6 people. Both bedrooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable and there is ample storage for clothes. The living room has a dining table, couch and TV. The bathroom has a shower and a small bath tub, nice for relaxing after a day of tourism. A narrow balcony is accessible from both the kitchen and back bedroom, ideal for drying laundry(clothes pins are provided- charming). The garden below is lovely and quiet.

Enrico, the manager, was there to greet and walk us through the apartment upon our arrival and was always immediately available to help with questions.

The apartment is located in a residential area, 15 minutes on foot to the center of town. Buses are available at 3-5 minutes away, two grocery stores are equally close.

Enrico recommended a few restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but one can find many others at no more than 10 minutes away.

All in all everything about this apartment contributed to a wonderful vacation in this marvelous city.

We would recommend this apartment to family and friends without reservation and would stay there again on any future visits to Florence.
