Excellent Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the apartment for 8 days and had an excellent experience. The owners took great care to ensure the apartment was ready for our arrival and met us at the apartment to show us the amenities and how everything worked. I had no problems with the owners' english but I have experience talking with people for whom english is a second language so I know to speak slower, to enunciate and not to use slang words. The owners were very responsive, compared to my experiences with other apartment rentals, when we had questions or issues. We really appreciated that.

The apartment is exactly as pictured and all things were clean and in working order. Cleaning and basic supplies were provided so we did not have to buy dish soap, paper towels, etc., quite different than my experience with other apartments. The location was great for us - a leisurely walk to the city center of about 15 minutes. It is far enough away so that you are not in the middle of the tourist craziness 24/7 and the restaurant prices were lower than the city center. There are several restaurants and a grocery store within a short walking distance of the apartment which the owners kindly pointed out to us.

I have rented apartments in the past for both work and pleasure and this was absolutely the best experience I've ever had!

Loved this clean, modern, convenient apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! The apartment is clean, modern and a great location for the price. It had an adorable terrace and a working washing machine. Alessandra and Roberto were very friendly although a little difficult to communicate with in English. The apartment was fully stocked with cutlery, glassware, etc. The location was good for us because we don't mind a short walk to attractions. I would highly recommend this apartment and would stay here again. I suggest to Alessandra and Roberto to leave a map and a restaurant guide in the apartment with suggestions for those of us who arrive late and are hungry. We found a terrific family-run restaurant in the neighbourhood by accident and liked it so much we went back twice.

Wonderful updated studio in Florence

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here January 2013 for about 3 weeks while I attended a course in the city center. The apartment was beautifully updated and very clean. The owner was so kind and helpful with any questions I had, she even washed the linens for me! It took me about 20-25 minutes to walk to the city center (it was my first time in Florence, so I got lost alot!), and the bus stop was only a 5 minute walk. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I highly reccomend staying in this apartment if you want to be close to the city, but in a more quiet atmosphere.

bonne location

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très mignon, au calme et sans vis-à-vis, très propre. A 20 minutes à pied du centre-ville, son accès est cependant facile.

Un supermarché à 500 mètres dans la même rue est un atout non négligeable, tout comme la climatisation dans l'appartement.

Je le recommande sans hésitation.

Sehr sauber und super ausgestattet

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und hervorragend ausgestattet (WLAN funktionierte auch gut). Die Lage ist ruhug, mit dem Bus ist man in 10 Minuten in der Altstadt und in der Nähe befindet sich ein ordentlicher Supermarkt. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Veramente delizioso

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati in questo appartamento veramente delizioso nella settimana di capodanno. E' situato in un'ottima posizione per raggiungere il centro di Firenze a piedi. Il monolocale è ben arredato e molto funzionale oltre che ben pulito. La proprietaria è davvero gentile e disponibile. Lo consiglio vivamente. Ci tornerei subito!
