The Perfect Apartment in Florence
Anyone looking for an apartment in Florence has literally hundreds of options. In preparing for our first visit to Florence (a nine-day visit with my wife, along with our daughter and her husband), we checked out the reviews of countless apartments, and we selected one that sounded perfect for us: "Basilica of Santa Croce." It was indeed the perfect choice.
As other reviews have pointed out, the location of the apartment is ideal. You are literally within a ten-minute walk of nearly every major attraction in Florence. There are excellent restaurants and charming shops throughout the neighborhood, a wonderful coffee shop around the corner, and a small grocery a couple of blocks away.
The apartment itself is exactly as described: clean, roomy, and comfortable, furnished with charm and style. The kitchen and bathrooms are well-stocked and functional, the bedrooms attractive and comfortable, and the den area is a perfect space for relaxing after a long day of sight-seeing.
Finally, a word about the owner, Alberto. One of the reasons we selected this apartment after reading so many reviews was the number of very positive comments about the service provided by the owner. Alberto was indeed the perfect host. He was very responsive to questions throughout the time leading up to our trip, and he was there to meet and greet us when we arrived. He goes "above and beyond" the call of duty. He checked in with us during our visit to see if everything was going well. At my request he connected us with a driver to provide us with day-trips through Tuscany, and he even arranged for taxi service to the airport. Alberto simply could not have been more responsive or accommodating.
This was our first visit to Florence, and we loved every minute. When we return, there is no question about where we will stay: This apartment is perfect!
Apartment in the heart of Forence
This apartment is great and everything previous reviews mentioned. It's located within 5 to 10 minutes walk from every major site in Florence - The Duomo, Accademia, Uffizi, Santa Croce, etc. It's very clean, extremely well appointed (kitchen, bedrooms, baths) and all the amenities work very well (stove, WiFi, W/D). Finally Alberto is fantastic - friendly, professional and available.
Absolute gem of a property and location .
As shown in the photos, it is a lovely apartment. It is right in the heart of town but on a much quieter side street. The mattresses are a bit on the hard side, but that's a pretty minor critique of an otherwise great space.
Homey apartment ideally located
Wed had a wonderful stay at Alberto’s apartment, which has everything you need, including a nice large tub with plenty of hot water. The apartment is in a quiet little courtyard with two nice restaurants right there, and is within a few blocks of everything important you’ll want to see on a tourists’ agenda. Would stay again. Good job Alberto!
