Comfortable Flat located three blocks down from the Duomo

  • 4 of 5

Our host Eleonora met us at the flat and gave us the full tour. She provided us with some tips on where to eat, where to visit, etc. As the unit has been rented quite a bit there was an abundance of reference material for us also to draw up our own plans. We stayed during the winter season and found it to be comfortably heated. The balcony outside was great. Despite the temperature we spent quite a bit of time out there, absolutely beautiful. The kitchen came with most everything that we needed although the pots an pans were a bit dated. The bathroom was probably the only thing that we didn't care for but based on the rest of the places that we stayed, small cramped bathrooms seems to be more common than not. If not for the bathroom i would rate this a 5. Beyond this the most important thing for me was that the bed was comfortable.

Overall everything was quite good and our host responsive. I would recommend to others.

Comfortable with a Magnificent View

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the apartment...it had all we needed and a breathtaking view as well. The elevator to the top helped immensely, just a short flight of steps to the flat. Good water pressure, great kitchen, all though we didn't use much of it. Bed was fresh and comfy! Everything was in walking distance. We passed several things we weren't expecting as well. Doumo was 5 minutes! Highly recommended

Spacious lovely apartment near Galleria dell'Accademia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, large and lots of windows -- separate rooms for the bedroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. We loved the balcony. It’s on the top floor but the elevator takes you within one short flight of stairs of the apartment. Washing machine was a nice extra. TV had a couple of English channels. The apartment had a map and lot of brochures about the city. The kitchen was well equipped. I recommend sleeping with the windows closed or face the mosquitos. The apartment does have the little night light bug zapper which was very effective. The WIFI seemed to work either great or sometimes not at all.

Florence is the city for art lovers, so many museums. The apartment is very close to the Accademia, 5 minute walk to a Conad grocery, 10 minute walk to the Duomo, 15 minute walk to Uffizi, 20 minutes to the train station. Florence is small, the only time we used a taxi was coming back from Piazzale Michelangelo (great view of the city).

Francesco was very helpful and prompt to reply to our emails. Elenora met us at the door, had several helpful tips. The tourist information office across from the train station arranged a wonderful day trip to Cinque Terre for us.

We loved this apartment and thoroughly recommend it. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic Apartment! Florence was the last stop on our trip. We ate in every night on the balcony and coffee every morning.The pictures do not do this view justice! The apartment was located just a 5 min walk to the Duomo. Thankful there was an elevator. not many apartments have them! Grocery on the way to the Duomo sells everything you need including wine! Every window has an incredible view! We would stay here again if we ever get back to Florence!

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at the apartment. We were met by Eleonora who spent quite a bit of time pointing out where things were in the area and had a map marked up with restaurant recommendations that she went over with us. This was a nice touch. The apartment is very nice and well equipped. It was amazing to sit on the terrace and look over at the Duomo while reading about its construction! The apartment is nice and quiet at night, even though very close to a busy Piazza. We would definitely stay here again and hope to have the chance for a longer stay next time.
