Beautiful Apartment with character

  • 3 of 5

We agree with all the reviews: Beautiful, grand, historic building. Spacious apartment with all the character you expect from Italy. Great location. Walking distance to everything. Antonia is a gracious hostess. She is responsive and helpful. We really appreciate her helping us to get a taxi to the airport at 4am when leaving town. Only downfall is the noise from the bar next door. If you are a light sleeper this is not the place for you. The noise level is high.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Antonia's apartment. She greeted us on Easter morning with many great ideas on places to eat and visit. The apartment was amazing in location and grandeur and my favorite part of the apartment was the gigantic window overlooking the small street with glimpses of the historic areas that were all around us within 1-2 blocks. We were in many cities during our stay and by far, this apartment was our favorite. The many stairs were just a way to get us into shape for the many, many miles of walking the city we did.

Thank you Antonia

Historic and spacious apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was roomy and the building is incredibly historic - you really experience the history of this great city here.

Host was fantastic! Communicated often and well in English. She greeted us personally upon arrival and offered us lots of info and tips for our travels.

The building is well located, a few minutes walk to everything we wanted to see and very close to the Duomo. Being so central, the apartment was a bit noisy during the evening as there's a bar close by.

Lots of facilities; fridge and complete kitchen, laundry, living room.

Our stay in Florence was fantastic. The apartment is 3 minutes away from the Duomo, clean, big and perfect for small groups.

Antonia was the perfect host! She's really kind and she was always available. Thank you so much for the library and Il Santino, the best advices ever! We highly recommend this apartment.

Thank you for everything Antonia!

Spacious loft apartment and generous host

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florence and received a warm welcome when we arrived, with lots of local tips and dinner suggestions. The space was beautiful and was in a relatively central location. Access to a washing machine was much appreciated! Slight downsides however included poor ventilation in the sleeping area (it was very stuffy at night) and a large amount of street noise each morning between 4-6am, making it difficult to get a good night sleep.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent choice for a stay in Florence! The apartment's location is right in the center of the old town and we walked everywhere. It is in an unique building that is more beautiful than reflected in the photos and puts y right in the atmosphere of Florence. It a spacious appartement for five. Very clean and nicely decorated. Antonia waited for us and was very helpful with lots of tourist information. She even prepared a map in Hebrew for us. We would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Floreence and we hope to return. Thank you Antonia.
