My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this Florence apartment very much. It was within walking distance to all the sights and interesting streets of Florence. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. We would easily book here again.

Beautiful Apartment...but noisy
We loved the apartment which was clean and a good location. The only bad thing is there is a busy bus stop just outside which has constant traffic with taxis and pedestrians from early in the morning until midnight. We could hardly sleep with the noise. The bed and pillows were very hard, but that is a preferential thing. The host, Elisabetta was helpful as the instructions for reterieving the keys were somewhat confusing upon arrival.
I'm sorry, actually the square by day is very lively, also because there are many restaurants and bars and this is a positive aspect for many guests but it can disturb those who are sensitive to noise, even if the night is quiet! I'm sorry for the bed which is generally considered very comfortable; I realize, however, that this is a subjective preference. Upon their arrival, the guests requested my intervention to collect the keys that are in a box with a password; I'm sorry if they have had any difficulty and I will try to modify the instructions to make them as clear as possible; as a matter of fact, this key collection system is generally appreciated because guests are free to arrive at their favorite time without restrictions. I hope however that the holiday was still pleasant.
Nice apartment, great location
My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to Florence and had a great time. The location is perfect, only about 12 minute walk from Santa Maria train station. The apartment was just as pictured, even bigger than we expected. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The shower was a bit small (compared to US showers), but we had no problem using it. I did have an issue with the clothes washer, but that was on my end on not understanding how European washers operate. (I will read up on that before our next trip! :) ). We had the opportunity to meet Elisabetta at dinner on our last night, such a nice lady. The restaurant was the Ristorante Accademia, just a couple doors down from the apartment. It was a great recommendation (Thanks Elisabetta), excellent food and wine!
Awesome location close to everything! Nice place, comfortable bed/bedding. As previous comment have mentioned the city noise is loud otherwise it has everything thing you would need.
Convenient and comfortable apartment
Florence was the second city my husband and I visited in our 10-day trip through Italy. The apartment was adequate and comfortable for our needs. Thankfully it had air conditioning in the bedroom and living space because the days we visited Florence it was 90 degrees or better! While the apartment is located very close to the Accademia Gallery (just around the corner),the Duomo and many restaurants and cafes, it overlooks San Marco Piazza which is a very busy place. The piazza is a major bus stop for, what appeared to us, all of the bus lines in Florence. So night and day buses are pulling in and out of the square and people are gathering. Also, there is a restaurant directly below the apartment, which is always busy, as well.
Elisabetas apartment was very clean and well appointed. The location was a five minute walk from the Accademia Museum and ten minutes to the Duomo. The area has hundreds of restaurants, bars, cafes etc.It is right at a main hub for busses and cabs so it is noisy but ear plugs made sleeping no problem. We contacted Elisabetta a couple of times while we were there and she responded very quickly. We would highly recommend staying here.
The apartment overlooks a dynamic square full of bars, restaurants and pastry shops, exactly in the centre of the city. Moreover, it is at walking distance from the Gallery of the Academy of Florence, which is the home of the Michelangelo's sculpture David, and from the National Museum of San Marco, which exhibits all works by Beato Angelico. Our apartment is located in a strategic location, ideal to reach in few minutes on foot all the main tourist points of interest of the city. Thanks to the main Florence bus lines, which stop next to our apartment, you can reach every part of the town and suburbs (Fiesole or Michelangelo Square). Few metres from the apartment you can find a high-quality restaurant called "L'Accademia", where you can try some of the best Italian dishes.
