Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Location is great but there is no place for more than one suitcase unless you carry that up MORE steps. Cannot stand up in the loft due to low ceiling. Could not make even a cup of tea as stove wouldn’t work. Overall not for us.

Owner's Response: I m sorry that the apartment was not you expect but on the web is specify that there are steps! It is a panoramic apartment! Usually people don t care if the ceiling is not so hight in the part where there is the bed because they use it only for sleeping. Than l don t understand what didn t work for you.... in the apartment is everything perfectly working and l don t understand why you didn 't call me if you had problems with the kitchen. I m always avaiable with my guests!

The most beautiful apartment ever

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a wonderful, romantic loft. This is it. Please don't look anywhere else. Feel slightly bad writing such a great review for fear that everyone will want to stay in this neighbourhood. But it is pure Florence. The pictures don't do it justice. The location is walking distance to everything. Note, it is a few floors up, stairs. No lift. But well worth it. It, is, magic.

This is a lovely apartment, staying here was a highlight of our 5 days in Florence.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, well equipped, and extremely comfortable! The huge windows provide a beautiful view of the city, and the sun in the early morning is a wonderful start to the day. There are 2 large, very comfortable sofas, the terrace off the kitchen is fantastic, we ate 90% or our meals there. The 75 stairs are no problem for anyone half fit (we are over 65). Just outside the front entrance of the building is a small plaza with several good restaurants; a good food store Conad is a block away. Overall a beautiful refuge to escape from the crowds and refresh; home away from home.

"Sleeping among the Angels"

I've wanted to stay in this apartment since the first time I saw it online on VRBO. A wall of glass overlooking the Florentine roof tops, Santa Croce, the tower of Palazzo Vecchio and the dome of il Duomo was perfection. The sunrise each morning over the hills was a perfect way to start each day. It's a hike to get to the flat, with no lift, as the building is ancient, but worth every breathless step. The flat is central to everywhere you would want to visit and the grocery store is a convenient two blocks away. Understanding that there's hardly a concept of double insulated windows throughout Italy, street noise was able to be heard at some points. I'd suggest bringing a pair of ear plugs if you tend to be a light sleeper. The kitchen was ideal and a delight to cook in. The flat is perfect for one or two people and make sure you're comfortable with stairs. I guarantee that the climb is entirely worth it. Silvia was a delight to work with from the very beginning and her father was most gracious in assisting me with my ridiculously overpacked luggage. I would have brought my own Sherpa had I been willing to pay for an additional airline ticket. I wish I lived here! I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in Firenze as I've found my new home from home! Thank you!
