L'appartamento e' molto bello, pulito, silenzioso e l'arredamento e' molto curato. La posizione e' veramente comoda a pochi passi dal centro e dalla stazione centrale. Claudia e' stata molto gentile e disponibile, decisamente da consigliare!

Beautiful apartment with all conveniences at hand

  • 5 of 5

My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment just a few minutes away from the Duomo and the San Lorenzo market. The apartment is spacious, with a great kitchen that includes a dishwasher. Lots of room to store our belongings and plenty of supplies including coffee, a hanging rack for laundry, extra duvets and pillows. There is a laundromat two doors over that was very convenient and easy to use. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores in the vicinity. It's a five minute walk from the train station which was very handy for us. Claudia was a pleasure to deal with. We let her know our train arrival time, which was earlier than the check-in time, and she assured us that we could at least drop off our luggage early. When we arrived, everything was ready for us to check in! We stayed in the middle of a heat wave, and the air conditioning was great to have.

Beautiful little apartment in the market district of Florence.

  • 5 of 5

Claudia was a delightful person and her apartment made Florence the highlight of our vacation. The location was perfectly situated at only 200m from the train station and around the corner from the large outdoor market. Great nightlife made it easy to pop down for a drink late at night and we felt completely safe. The livingroom/kitchen was large and comfortable with large shuttered windows looking down on the street. The kitchen had everything for cooking a meal or a simple breakfast with coffee. The bedroom was separated by a small corridor and it was very comfortable. We had our best showers in the apartment. We will do everything we can to stay there next time.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights during our 3 week vacation. The apartment is beautiful, very clean, large, and well-maintained. The owner was responsive and helpful during the booking process and her sister was present to welcome us, show us around, and answer any questions we had. We would not hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family.

The apartment was located directly down the street from the San Lorenzo market and the Medici Chapels and within minutes of the train station. It is a great location and allowed us to walk everywhere and drop off our bags during the day. There are numerous restaurants, shops, bars, and ATMs within minutes of the apartment and the area itself is very safe.

Beautiful apartment in a great location. Pictures are very accurate. Our luggage was lost on the flight over, and Claudia offered her cell phone number so that the airline could contact her when they would be dropping off the luggage. She was prompt in meeting us and incredibly helpful!! We loved the location and thought the apartment was a great value. Woulds stay here again in a heart beat!

Very nice, clean and well-maintained property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at many different properties over the course of several weeks across Europe and this property was absolutely our favorite! Wish we would have stayed longer!! It was so clean and certainly felt like a nice home base during our explorations in Florence. And the air conditioning was very nice to have as it can get very hot. Couldn't ask for a better place! We would definitely recommend this property to others!!
