About Cosimo Curradi

I live in the same building, next to this apartment, and I manage it for the owner, my brother. I enjoy renting it to foreign tourists, knowing people from all over the world and welcome them in my beautiful city.

Cosimo Curradi purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Cosimo Curradi chose Florence

This apartment is a property of my family, we like the district. It is really comfortable for those people who are searching a good position and a good place to stay for visiting Florence.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Cosimo met us within minutes of our arrival in Florence. Throughout our stay he was helpful, prompt in meeting our needs and the perfect host. He speaks English very well and has a winning personality. The apartment, though small, was clean and several English-language TV stations were available. The apartment is conveniently located to tourist attractions and the train and bus stations. It was tight quarters for the two of us after a month's stay, but we wouldn't object to another visit there. The terrace view of the cathedral dome was perfect. We had meals and "happy hours" on the terrace often. Thank you, Cosimo, for a great experience.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

Cosimo greeted us, walked us through the apartment and showed us on the map where we were in relation to landmarks and attractions. He has plenty of info and recommendations on the kitchen counter that came in very handy.

The apartment was clean, well equipped and in a convenient central location. The open market was just down the road as well as a great little coffee bar called Mama Bar that we visited every day for coffee. The nicest people in Italy run Mama Bar!

The apartment is exactly as advertised except that there were no outdoor chairs on the terrace when we were there. It was no big deal, we brought the indoor chairs out when we wanted to enjoy the cute little terrace. That was the only inconsistency from the pictures on the site to the actual apartment. I loved this apartment, Cosimo was helpful and very nice. We'd stay here again in a second!

Highly recommend!

No time for us

  • 2 of 5

We arrived at 2:00 pm at the apartment. Cosimo said he wouldn't be there until 4:00 pm. Luckily another fellow let us in and got hold of Cosimo at work. He arrived shortly after but had no time for us. If we hadn't run into Cosimo later that evening while we were on our way out we would never have seen him again.

There was an awful sewer gas smell in the apartment. I left a message for Cosimo about this but he never got back to me.

Owner's Response: I was late because my work is to welcome people in the apartments and in that day I had 3 check ins at the same time. I informed you in advance and you found a person to welcome you instead of leaving alone in front of the apartment. The gas smell you felt was not coming from my apartment but it was coming from the close one because there are some works. And I did not answer because they wrote me during the night and I saw the message the day after!!!!! This review is not right and it is unfair! Why didn't you write about the conditions you have left the house? There was a smell of fish very very much and it took all the day to go away. Ah, onother thing, next time when you leave an apartment remember to water away your poo, I don't like to clean my guest's poo.

Great View and an Outstanding Owner

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Cosimo was prompt with responses and very helpful from the first communication until after checkout. Cosimo was there to greet us and answer all our questions plus give information about the area that we found helpful and used.

The room was just like it was described in the add and the view was definitely amazing from the Terrace. In fact, my Wife and I chose to eat dinner and breakfast on the Terrace most nights instead of sitting in a restaurant or cafe because we enjoyed the view so much. The room is on a quiet street and is about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Galleria dell'Accademia (The David Statue), about a 10 or so minute walk from the Duomo, and maybe 15 minutes from the Uffizi. All in all a great location where you can explore Florence easily by foot. There are also plenty of places to eat around the apartment and there is a grocery store very close to the Galleria dell'Accademia that we used multiple times.

The shower was at least double the size of any other shower we had in Italy (stayed 5 different places) and the washing machine and all other appliances worked great for us.

We would definitely recommend Cosimo's room to anyone looking at this site and will mention it back here in the USA if anyone mentions a trip to Italy in their future. We are definitely keeping this add bookmarked in case we get lucky enough to return to Florence one day.

Grazie Cosimo!!

Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Cosimo's apartment on our recent trip through Italy. The location was wonderful, and Cosimo was a fantastic host. Booking and scheduling was easy - Cosimo was extremely attentive and quick to respond to any and all of our questions. He met us at the apartment to welcome us, and even provided us with a map of the city with some highlights of his favorite spots to see and eat! We would highly recommend the location - it worked perfectly for us! It was relatively central to the city, and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. Thank you Cosimo for a great experience!

Cute, cozy & clean

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic apartment, worked well for me, a solo female traveler. The apartment is fully stocked so you can easily cook your own meals from groceries bought at the fresh market that is only a few blocks away (indoors, Mercato Centrale), yet it is also centrally located enough so that you are within walking distance from many fabulous restaurants (10 min walk to the Duomo area). The apartment itself is bright and modern, very clean inside, and the cute patio has a fantastic view of the Duomo. There is a washer and air conditioning, both which I used. All in all, a very comfortable holiday at an affordable price. My only negative comment was that internet was rather slow, but I was able to use it for everything I needed except Skype. Cosimo was very friendly and helped answer all my questions, he even offered to call and make tour reservations for me since I don't speak much Italian. I definitely recommend this apartment!
