Overview

Photos and Description of this Duomo holiday apartment

On the top floor with lift, 3 double rooms, 1 bathroom, living room and kitchen

Very ample apartment situated on the top (fourth) floor with lift, air conditioning and all comforts. Located between Via de' Medici and Via degli Speziali, close to Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, it has a wonderful view of the Cathedral Dome, of Giotto's bell tower, Orsanmichele and Palazzo Vecchio. The apartment is composed of an ample living room with sofa bed, three bedrooms (two rooms with super king size bed and one room with two single beds), a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen and one bathroom with bathtub. The apartment has been very recently refurbished, as we moved out to go live in the countryside. It is very comfortable and pleasant to live in, conveniently situated near all kind of shops and the main tourist attractions.

A Room With A View

  • 5 of 5

Perfect apartment in the center of it all. Views galore. The Duomo from the kitchen and the Palazzo Vecchio from the living room. We'd come home from a long day touring, open the living room window and let the guitar player in the Piazza della Repubblica softly serenade us. The apartment itself is spotless and has everything you could need, including a washer AND dryer. The owner was very nice and communication with her was excellent. We arranged for a time to meet to get the keys but got very lost (our mistake) and were an hour late. She skipped an important appointment to make sure she was there to greet us and let us in. We were so grateful. I highly recommend this apartment. It was perfect for our family of 6. Thank you Serena!

Fantastic Rental, Views! Central Location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, spacious, high-end rental, highly recommended, just as shown in the photos!!! Incredible view of the Duomo dome from the kitchen and living room, great location, nice elevator, very quiet on the 4th floor. We were met promptly, and everything was clean and in good condition. The beds were comfortable, and the air conditioning was exceptional good (very appreciated during the hot August weather)! The kitchen is large with plenty of pots/pans/dishes/cooking utensils and appliances (toaster, coffee maker) and some dry goods, and Serena thoughtfully left a cold for us in the refrigerator. Fast wifi and a nice smart TV that connects to the internet. Serena always responded quickly to emails. We did not need anything during our stay. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone!

Excellent property in heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Really nice apartment in centre of Florence. Very convenient for all the sights, Duomo, Uffizi, Palazzo Vecchio all within a few minutes. We were greeted on arrival and made to feel very welcome and there was a very useful file containing information about where to shop, restaurant recommendations and other useful stuff. All communication with host was excellent. Really good kitchen facilities which we made use of on a few occasions after visits to the nearby markets but there were also loads of fantastic eating places nearby. Thoroughly recommended - David

It was very comfy, had everything we needed. Good location. Very clean - Jennie

ACE! The beds were so comfy and decorations lovely. I also loved the views. I fell in love with the 15 min cycle on the washing machine, very useful with such hot weather. - Deborah

Lovely apartment with outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in Serena's lovely apartment. The apartment was large enough for the 5 of us to have plenty of room and was very clean. The views from the windows were beautiful and it has all of the amenities you would want. It is located within walking distance of all the main points of interest in Florence. Serena was very accommodating and promptly responded to inquiries. She provided information about the apartment and Florence and was very kind to us. We would definitely stay there again.

Excellent apt! Walk everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

Serena's apt is spotlessly clean, and comfortable. Good wifi access throughout. Easy walking distance to everything. We traveled with 2 adults and 2 young adults, but this apt would easily accommodate a much larger group. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds, a bedroom with 2 twins, plus the sofa.

Accessibility notes: There is 1 step to get into the building, plus the step to get onto the sidewalk to begin with. The lift is small, but will fit 2 people + a folding wheelchair. The size seemed typical for what we found throughout Italy at small hotels. My mother who has limited mobility but can get out of her wheelchair for short periods found it pretty easy to access.
