Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable flat with a lift to almost the top floor. Eleonora was having a "bad hair day" so we had to wait a bit in a corner bar for entry, but oh dang, we had drink a few beers! Well equipped for cooking, and a longer stay. Bathroom not made for big folks - it is tight. Hot water in and out, Eleonora said they would fix it.

This photo is a bit outdated as there is not an awning, but some beautiful vine growing over the patio. (Wisteria? Night Jasmine?) wished we could have seen in bloom. Oh and guests should water them!!

This flat is perfect for couples and small families. You will be able to enjoy Florence for many days.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Please consider that Eleonora has done the check in at lunch time 2 hours before the expected time (the check in time is after 3 pm). We always try to do our best in order to do the check in as soon as possible. As relates to the hot water, we have been informed about that potencial issue only the check out day as a consequence the issue has been solved in the same day in the afternoon. Thanks again

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect spot for a stay to immerse yourself in the culture and life of Florence.

Very well appointed, nicely furnished apartment with all mod-cons needed in a great location.

And the roof-terrace- what a wonderful spot to have that evening drink, lunch or dinner..

Eleanora set the tone with her warm welcome and helpful information.

Highly recommended!

Spacious apartment, great location

  • 3 of 5

We arrived hot and flustered, after a walk through Florence with heavy luggage on a 35 degree day. Elenora was waiting to greet us on the street and showed us around the apartment and gave us recommendations for places to eat and drink while in Florence. She was fantastic, friendly and couldn't be more willing to help.

The apartment is in a brilliant location, 5 minutes' walk from the Duomo. The pictures of the balcony/terrace are exact and it was beautiful sitting out there for an evening aperitivo and snack.

The apartment itself was clean and spacious, and had all the amenities we needed, such as an iron and washing machine, etc. Air conditioning was great and essential for the hot summer days. The only minor let down was the bathroom, which was a poor layout and not very functional (so small that you couldn't shower without the whole bathroom getting soaked). The shower could also do with a good de-molding.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for a one or two night stay in Florence if you want to be close to the action.

Comfortable Flat located three blocks down from the Duomo

  • 4 of 5

Our host Eleonora met us at the flat and gave us the full tour. She provided us with some tips on where to eat, where to visit, etc. As the unit has been rented quite a bit there was an abundance of reference material for us also to draw up our own plans. We stayed during the winter season and found it to be comfortably heated. The balcony outside was great. Despite the temperature we spent quite a bit of time out there, absolutely beautiful. The kitchen came with most everything that we needed although the pots an pans were a bit dated. The bathroom was probably the only thing that we didn't care for but based on the rest of the places that we stayed, small cramped bathrooms seems to be more common than not. If not for the bathroom i would rate this a 5. Beyond this the most important thing for me was that the bed was comfortable.

Overall everything was quite good and our host responsive. I would recommend to others.

Comfortable with a Magnificent View

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the apartment...it had all we needed and a breathtaking view as well. The elevator to the top helped immensely, just a short flight of steps to the flat. Good water pressure, great kitchen, all though we didn't use much of it. Bed was fresh and comfy! Everything was in walking distance. We passed several things we weren't expecting as well. Doumo was 5 minutes! Highly recommended

Spacious lovely apartment near Galleria dell'Accademia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, large and lots of windows -- separate rooms for the bedroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. We loved the balcony. It’s on the top floor but the elevator takes you within one short flight of stairs of the apartment. Washing machine was a nice extra. TV had a couple of English channels. The apartment had a map and lot of brochures about the city. The kitchen was well equipped. I recommend sleeping with the windows closed or face the mosquitos. The apartment does have the little night light bug zapper which was very effective. The WIFI seemed to work either great or sometimes not at all.

Florence is the city for art lovers, so many museums. The apartment is very close to the Accademia, 5 minute walk to a Conad grocery, 10 minute walk to the Duomo, 15 minute walk to Uffizi, 20 minutes to the train station. Florence is small, the only time we used a taxi was coming back from Piazzale Michelangelo (great view of the city).

Francesco was very helpful and prompt to reply to our emails. Elenora met us at the door, had several helpful tips. The tourist information office across from the train station arranged a wonderful day trip to Cinque Terre for us.

We loved this apartment and thoroughly recommend it. Thanks for a great stay!
