Spacious, bright apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Claudia's Florence apartment offers more space than a hotel room with a large sized closet to hang garments. The location - adjacent to the church of San Lorenzo - is very convenient. There are many small, good restaurants for dining out as well as the Mercato Centrale if you wish to cook in. You are also close to the leather market with its profusion of jackets and handbags and the main train station. Claudia is very helpful.

Great Location - Safe

  • 5 of 5

The location was 5 minutes from station, even though we were late, Claudia waited until we arrived. The apartment was exactly how it looks in picture. Located on side street with restaurants, bars, and square where you can purchase anything. We were 5 minutes from Dumo and meeting points for our tours. Local wine bars were enjoayable, nice dinner at Zaza, then stroll around and walk off food. Market down the street and the laundry was two doors down...able to wash clothes in mornings and grab pastry and coffee. You are located on top of stores and restaurants so there are times at night a little noisy...but nothing too bad. There is no elevator, but only have to go up 1 flight of stairs. Claudia recommended restaurant, showed sights to visit on map, great communicator and wonderful host...

Cozy and clean apartment, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

You really can't beat this location - just steps from the Santa Maria Novella train station and then steps from the center of the city. The apartment itself is charming and clean, and surprisingly quiet, and it has everything you need in a home away! Claudia was there to greet us and had all the information we needed at the ready. We'd stay here again on a trip back to Florence!

Great location and within walking distance from the train station. Although the bldg is very old, the apt is very modern, clean, and updated. The air conditioner was not very strong, and a little musty in the bedroom , but all in all, a great apt
