A 5* property in a 5 * location
The apartment is bigger than expected with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Air con was a blessing! Beds were very comfortable and the apartment was peaceful. Lots of space for a family of 4 but would suit a bigger family too. The location is perfect, literally a short walk away from everything there is to see in Florence. Sabrina was so attentive leading up to and throughout our stay. She answered my many questions quickly and was very helpful, a fabulous host! I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone. Added bonus, you can see the Duomo out of the window, fabulous view to wake up to.
Tips for future visitors with children... Restaurants are quite expensive around the Duomo but we found Ristorante Osteria dell' agnolo on Borgo San Lorenzo (literally one street away) was very tasty and reasonably priced, good with kids too. We loved visiting the Da Vinci museum which was very hands on and kept the kids entertained. Well worth a visit.
Great Location, and Beautiful View of Duomo
Perfect home base for exploring the city, with everything in reach. Beautiful view of the Duomo and the sound of the charming bells! A cozy, and cool respite from the sun and crowds when needed. Sabrina made check-in and our stay extremely convenient and comfortable.
Sabrina was responsive to all questions throughout the process. The location is perfect and seeing the Duomo and hearing the bells chime adds to the charm. You can walk everywhere. The apartment was clean and larger than expected and had everything that was needed. Bucca Niccolini down the street (right by the Duomo) had nice meals and the Gran Caffe San Marco (near Academia) the opposite direction has a wonderful selection of pastries.I recommend you stay at this convenient, terrific apartment!
it was my pleasure to have you as my guest.
Happy new year!
Great Location, Functional, Has Some Quirks
First of all, the location was great (PERFECT) and felt very safe. I wandered out in the evenings, and had no hesitation being alone. Sabrina was very good at communication.
The floors were a little dirty, but that's the price of being in the city. Everything else was clean. The internet worked great, as well as the A/C. There are a lot of steps, 68 of them, but they are a good way to work off the yummy gelato you should eat every day!
A couple of things to keep in mind:
When it says "coffee maker", it only means a 1-cup Italian percolator-style. There were filters for a regular coffee maker, but apparently it broke at some point and was not replaced. There was no coffee provided, so make sure you pick some up before you go to bed that first night.
There are 17 plates, but no bowls! Not sure how that happened, but be aware of it.
The place could also use some basic amenities for travelers, like salt, olive oil, etc. We bought some and left it there.
The 2-bed bedroom is LOUD. There is constant noise from the street, and not just people and the normal traffic noise, but very loud traffic. Just be aware, you will only have quiet in there from about 1:00 AM to about 5:30 AM. You cannot sleep with the window open without ear plugs. On the plus side, the window is very noise canceling, so it is nice and quiet when the window in there is closed. The other bedroom is just fine, just normal street noise.
The beds are very firm.
The washer is great, but it is a washer/dryer combo, which (no fault of the owner) aren't very good for drying. However, there is a nice sized clothes rack for drying, as well as outdoor lines that you can reach from the windows, so it all works out just fine.
Sorry for the long review, but I wanted to be thorough. All in all, I'd definitely recommend this place, and hope you have a wonderful stay in the amazing city of Florence!
Apartment is in a great central location! Clean and spacious.
Beautiful apartment with a great location...
This apartment truly has it all. The location is unbeatable being a block away from the Duomo and within walking distance to pretty much every major tourist attraction. It is very clean and comfortable and I would definitely stay here again if I’m in Florence.
You can visit the historic center of Florence on foot.
