Nice apartment, but nothing more

  • 2 of 5

The rooftop space and view of the Duomo were fantastic. Beyond that, this apartment had a number of issues. 75 steps up to the front door. We were warned, but still that's not an easy hike with any amount of luggage. We avoided coming home during the day because of the climb. The water pressure wasn't strong enough to use two showers simultaneously or even a sink and a shower together. There were no amenities whatsoever. No soap no trash bags. The owner refused to help make a dinner reservation which I understand is not required but would have been a huge help to us. Location and view were great, everything else was lacking.

Our family had a great time here. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and our host was wonderful. I'd definitely stay here again.

Fantastic location in nicely remodeled apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this Florence apartment. The location was just perfect for us, right in the middle of everything. The most amazing feature of the apartment is the views of the Duomo - it is really more impressive than the photos show. There is a fantastic private view terrace with jaw-dropping views of the Duomo and the sounds of its beautiful bells. Unfortunately, we were there in January, so really too cold to use the terrace, but I'd love to come back in summertime to sip wine up there. Having two bathrooms really made the space more convenient for our group of 6. The kitchen is small - I wouldn't cook meals there (but you're in Italy; why cook in?!), but it was serviceable for quick breakfast and evening wine and cheese. The only downside to this apartment, and it wasn't for us, is the number of steps required to get up from the street (on the 4th floor). If you had someone who had limited mobility, it would be a challenge. I would love to come back and stay at this apartment again!

Great location, fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment in Florence. The view from the roof terrace was amazing and the location was perfect, very central so we were able to walk to everything. The apartment itself was very clean and modern inside; there are a number of steps (around 75) to get to the apartment, but our children managed fine with this and it was worth it for the wonderful view of the Duomo from the top!

We booked months in advanced only to be told it was not ready when we arrived! :(

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived at the villa we were greeted by the property manger that told us there was flooding in the villa and there was no electricity in the house.

She told us they had another place we could stay at and she said it would be comparable. After traveling to Florence and luggage in tow we accepted the substitute accommodations. We were given a flat in the center of downtown Florence. The accommodations were okay at best and we certainly did not have the view that we would have had if we stayed at the place we booked to go to.The bathrooms were very small and the stand up shower was very poor.

There was a jacuzzi spa in the living area on wood floors that looked like more trouble than it was worth to use.

We were disappointed and had never experienced staying in a place that we booked months in advanced only to be told the day of arrival that it was not available. We have used VRBO to vacation a couple of times in Florida and Bahamas and it was very smooth up until this booking. It was disturbing that if the owner knew about any problems before hand they did not offer to refund or at least explain a different choice or discount versus paying for a sub standard of what we booked in the first place. We made the best of it and will visit Florence again just not with this owner.

Furious!

  • 2 of 5

The luxury modern big penthouse did not materialise!! We arrived in Via del Corso at the appointed time with no one to meet us. The lady in the shop tried to help us and said this was not the first time this had happened. The ladies arrived only to tell us that the penthouse was not available due to no water or electricity and would not be repaired until after we had left! We would have liked to have been informed of this beforehand so as to make a decision but the decision was made for us and we were taken to a flat with a jacuzzi in the sitting room!... I had seen this flat on the website and rejected it. There was no seating only the jaccuzi with a mattress on it covered in a dirty throw. The balcony was nothing but a window sill with two small chairs and a table, to climb on to it took the skill of a mountain goat. The views were of air conditioners and pipes horrible. A welcome pack of some milk and bread would have been nice. I have texted and emailed the owners but have been ignored. BEWARE!....
