5 star simple elegance!

  • 5 of 5

Mariolina was a great hostess and provided everything we needed. She did some simple grocery shopping for us so the fridge was stocked upon arrival. She also arranged an excellent driver, Allesandro, for our tour of an amazing winery and airport transfers.

We loved this apartment! It was clean, warm & plenty of hot water. Three bathrooms are quite a luxury in Italy. High ceilings & lots of floor to ceiling windows.

What a great location! You can walk everywhere of interest within 15 min. Elevator a great plus too. Right in the middle of the city so somewhat noisy but we got used to that and would stay there again because all other positives outweigh this.

Thanks Mariolina for an amazing experience! We hope to see you again soon!

Excellent apartment just as described

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nice and the location was excellent for walking to all of the major sites. Mariolina was very helpful with directions and suggestions for dinner.

The only issue for us, which we felt was minor relative to the other benefits, was the apartment is located at an active intersection which made for street noise beginning at about 7:00am.

When we return we will stay at this apartment.

Buen departamento

  • 4 of 5

El departamento esta bien ubicado , con las comidades necesarias para un grupo de 8 personas, se extrañaba un microondas.

Todo muy limpio y bien mantenido.

Un poco ruidoso en la noche.

Great Apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented a number of properties thru HomeAway and this apartment was one of the best. The owner Mariolina was very responsive in our initial booking of the apartment. She setup transportation for us from the train station as we had 8 people in our party and was very helpful in providing us with information about Florence and our neighborhood. We did have a few questions for her during the week. Maurolina was easy to reach and very responsive and supportive.

The apartment itself was very clean and well laid out. It was well appointed with kitchen utensils, towels, etc which is always important. It has large windows which we could open up at night to get a nice breeze, even though the air conditioning worked great.

Location of the apartment was excellent with a number of excellent cafes, pizza shops and small grocery stores within a very short walk. It's a great friendly neighborhood just around the corner from the Uffizi and a 5 minute walk to the center of the city. The neighborhood could be a little noisy at night but that's pretty normal for any apartment in the middle of the city.

Overall this is a great Apartment. The location is excellent, the apartment is well maintained and very functional and finally it was very well managed. We would certainly rent this again and highly recommend the property.

Thank you Maurolina for the great stay!
