Perfect Location, Walk to Everything
I loved staying here, I felt like a real local and it was a well needed rest for me to not have to hassle with public transport, I could just walk to everything: restaurants, grocery store and shops. The owners were fantastic, they even came to pick me up at the bus which arrived after midnight on a bitterly cold night and they escorted me to the apartment to make sure I arrived safely. That was very generous of them and kind. I enjoyed using the little kitchen too as I like to cook and make simple meals. It was a very relaxing stay and even quiet at night for being in the historic center. Loved the church bells ringing in the distance from the Duomo a few times a day. It was romantic.
A wonderful pied-a-terre in a beaufiul city!
We had no trouble finding the street, walking from the station. Enzo's son Luigi was there to meet us and was very friendly and helpful. The studio is compact but has everything one would need, and the bathroom is surprisingly large.
We appreciated the free bubbles and lollies - what a nice 'extra'! The location of the apartment is fantastic - you can see the Duomo from the window - and it was easy to walk everywhere in Florence. The Accademia is further up the same street and is a must. We didn't get to all of the things on our 'must do' list - there were just too many of them - but we will be back!
We can recommend Buca Niccolini, just down the road, for great food and excellent service... Enjoy!
This is the perfect area to stay in Florence. The apartment is a good size for 1-2 people and has all the amenities you will need. Located just steps from Duomo and many restaurants. Grocery stores are within easy walking distance as are museums and all tourist sights including David.
The apartment is safe and secure. The host is always available by phone. And the price was very good.
The only drawback was the lack of wifi. The Internet is essential for booking skip the line tickets or downloading maps. It was inconvenient not having access.
many thanks for your review!
The facilities of our studio are clearly listed in the description of the studio in the website and wifi is not listed. It is of course better to have free of charge internet connection at disposal but you have rented an apartment without wifi.
Guests must understand that internet or wifi connection has a cost which is not so low for budget accommodation like our one. We want to maintain the fee affordable for everybody and, on the other hand, wifi is easily available in most coffee bars, ice-cream shops, museums, public library few steps away from the studio. In any case, we are now verifying some new wifi offers and we hope to obtain one of them without increasing the renting fee. As soon as the studio will be wifi connected we will list this facility in the website.
Several studios next to our property have plenty of amenities including wifi and they cost approximately Euro 100 per day: as you prefer!
We hope to see you again in Florence. Best regards
Silvia & Enzo
Perfect Location for a Week in Florence!
We had a wonderful, total experience with this studio apartment from the moment of enquiry to the actual holiday. Enzo was quick to reply to my booking request and communicated well, sending us a comprehensive document with places of entertainment, art and restaurants that they recommend. Arrangements about where and when to meet were easy and Enzo and his daughter were waiting for us at the appointed time.
The apartment itself is a large room full of fascinating, eclectic art and objects with a comfy bed and a small kitchenette cupboard with fridge, 2 ring cooker and sink. All the equipment and towels we required were in place and we were able to prepare some of our meals as and when necessary. The bathroom is huge and clean with a shower, loo and bidet plus a washbasin.
Despite only having one window, the room feels light and airy and at night you can shut out the noise of the outside world with the double-glazed windows and shutters.
The apartment feels very secure and during the week there is a friendly porter in the entrance lobby. There are 2 lifts available to get to the apartment on the 4th floor which itself has a very secure locking system. It was so lovely to be so close to the centre of the city so that after a busy day walking around, we could pop back for a rest and clean-up before a leisurely stroll around Florence to find one of its many eating establishments. There are small supermarkets very nearby, one of which is open until midnight, so whatever time you arrive, you can pop out for some basic supplies.
Apart from the TV, for added entertainment we had an amazing violinist and double bass player playing at the end of the road in the evenings, which we could hear through our open window - we bought two of their CDs so we can relive the wonderful experience now we're back home!
Thank you Enzo and Sylvia (I think that's her name!) for a fantastic holiday in your lovely and economically-priced apartment :-) - we really loved it!
We are always so happy and satisfied when our guests enjoy their stay in Florence and in our studio. We try to offer them all the best! And we hope to realize this always.
ENZO SILVIA & EUGENIA
Just steps from the Duomo, the apartment is perfect for sightseeing. I particularly enjoyed being able to walk around the cathedral after the daytime crowds had gone.
Despite being in the center of things, the apartment is quite peaceful at night. The bed is comfortable and I slept well. Situated on an upper floor, (there is an elevator,) the unit is nice and bright in the daytime. The cooking facilities were handy for breakfasts and simple meals.
Communication was good. Before my arrival Enzo sent a list of local tips, and when he and his wife met me at the apartment they answered my specific questions. I had a very enjoyable stay and hope to return!
Small But Perfect in the centre of Florence
I think you would have a very hard time finding a better place to stay in Florence.The room is small but has everything you need as a couple.We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of November and it was such a nice quiet spot to come back to after the crowded streets of Florence (even in Nov.) and always felt completly safe.The location is amazing you are literally steps from one of the grandest Cathedrals in the world. Pope Francis arrived at the Duomo the day we left. We were able to watch him pass by (one street over) in The Pope Mobil managed to find a good spot on the fenced off streets with our luggage in tow then only took about 20 minutes to walk to the train even with the crowds.We can't thank Enzo and his wife enough for our wonderful stay.We loved the oranges!
The studio is suitable for tourists since they can reach all monuments in few minutes on foot. Excellent restaurants, boutiques, book shops, famous art galleries and antiques are very close. In the meantime you can enjoy the warm and lively atmosphere of San Lorenzo Market, a Liberty covered market, where you can buy typical and fresh food. Medici Palace and San Lorenzo church are in the same area. Bike renting is also possible. Private garage are in the next neighbourhood.
