Great Space...for Night Owls

  • 3 of 5

Our host's representative, Paola, was so friendly (her restaurant recommendations were terrific, too), and we were delighted by the gift of a welcoming bottle of Italian red wine. The city center is full of 400-year-old buildings, narrow cobblestone streets, lots of charm...and an active night scene. Read: noisy. The apartment was absolutely perfect for three- we each had our own space (though sleeping on a small convertible sofa is something one of us- me- hadn't done in a long time). Being on the first floor was convenient, but for three women used to quiet neighborhoods, it was hard to get a good night's rest after a day of sightseeing. The thumping music from the bar next door and the loud voices continued until well after midnight, and Saturday night was the worst: a huge yelling fight went on for nearly an hour before we finally heard a few police siren blasts to break it up.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your opinion. The area is full of clubs, bars, restaurants, theaters etc, so being in the historical center it is normal that there is less peace that in the countryside but this is also the charm of the city.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Three of us stayed in the Bargello apartment for three nights in July. The communication process in booking the apartment and arranging our arrival was smooth, and the owner was courteous. As another reviewer noted, the street and entrance are not especially impressive, and the inner stairway is grim. But the apartment itself was pleasant and comfortable, and the location is excellent. We walked to all the attractions. Lots of restaurants nearby -- one of our favorites was Ristorante la Maremma -- and there is a great gelato place just around the corner. We did not cook, per se, and cooking a full meal would have been a challenge in the tiny kitchen area; there is no counter space for preparation. A few upgrades -- a soap holder in the shower, hooks for hanging towels or clothes, a working AC in the living room, and a mop of the floors so our feet didn't turn black when we went barefoot -- would rate another star.

Owner's Response: thanks for your suggestions that we will certainly consider. with respect to the air-conditioned living area, unfortunately, in the days of your stay there was a failure and the technician came to fix it until the next day of your check-out. Now, it is working well. Massimiliano

Pretty good apartment

  • 4 of 5

Just spent 4 nights in the Bargello apartment with the family - 2 adults and 2 children. This was the last leg of our 2 week trip in Italy. The apartment building is very conveniently located - 5 mins to Palazzo Vecchio, less than 5 mins to the Duomo, and 3 mins to groceries. Plenty of restaurants around – though not too many of them well rated – need to go little further for those. The bedrooms are comfortable - but most probably best for 2 adults and 2 or 3 children. The bathroom, while spacious, needs some simple conveniences such as a toilet paper holder, and a rack in the shower for soap and shampoos – and maybe provide some small soaps and shampoos. The kitchen, while functional is really tight - even if just to prepare breakfast. There is practically no counter space - would have made sense to place the microwave over the stove..... but otherwise, the kitchen is quite functional. There is plenty of storage in the unit. The alley approach is a bit of a put off, but don't let that throw you off...... the stair, however, could certainly do with an upgrade.

The owners were responsive and helpful. They presented us with a bottle of Chianti when we checked in - though we did not consume it as we are white wine drinkers. Internet worked great! We did not need to use the AC as the weather was awesome. Noise is certainly a concern at night with a lot of drunken revelers strolling the streets - would have been easy to put in some better sound proofed doors/windows.

Overall, I'd rate this a decent/good apartment. Not great! We stayed in far nicer facilities in other cities. The Bargello unit is a very small investment from being set up as a really good apartment.

Great apartment, I love it!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment "duomo" for 3 weeks while studying and taking vacation in Florence. I will hope to return here! The apartment is clean, nicely renovated, and the location is outstanding. All the main attractions are a short walk. The apartment includes all the necessary amenities and the mattress is firm. I travel in Florence every year and this was one of my best stays. The owner is helpful, courteous, and prompt. I highly recommend a stay here if you have the opportunity.

Best Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

I loved this apartment in Florence...this was my favorite on my recent trip to Italy. Communication was excellent and was the main reason I picked this apartment. Beautiful view from the balcony. Check in and check out were completed timely and I appreciate not having to wait. Everything was within walking distance amazingly close. I highly recommend this apartment and look forward to my next stay

(Text automatically translated) The area where the apartment can be easily reached by taking bus no. C2 from the bus stop which is at the SMN train station or a bus line 14 (direction Ripa-Carrozzeria Primavera) to the stop-Ghibelline Bahian Travel (travel time 9 minutes).

(Text automatically translated) Some of the finest and most expensive restaurants, such as "L'Enoteca Pinchiorri", "The Cibreo" and "Alle Murate" are in the area, a short walk from the hotel but in addition to these you will find many restaurants and typical Florentine trattoria at popular prices.
