Lovely little apartment in an outstanding location
We stayed in this apartment for a month while we studied in Florence, and were very happy with the place! Excellent location right near the Arno, with nice bars, restaurants and a cafe we could study at on the same street. The beds were comfortable, and the apartment had all the necessities we could need including fridge, washing machine and dishwasher. There was also a small supermarket around the corner! It did get quite warm in the living room and front bedroom- but a fan was provided and it made all the difference!
John and I spent a month in Alberto's the lovely Oltrarno apartment. It was a pleasing and comfortable space. We cooked a bit and enjoyed many places to eat and shop in the neighborhood. Late March and April are a nice time to be in Florence. We spent a lot of time in Piazza Santo Spirito where we have rented before. It was nice to get to know a new (for us) neighborhood. Our agent, Elanora, was very helpful and suggested Sabatino's where we ate three times!
Awesome Flat near all tourist attractions
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this flat!!! Awesome location!! Puente Vecchio 5 minutes. The flat was spacious
Eleanora was fabulous she pointed us out to all the locations that had the best deals for eating !!
I will come back again!!!
Charming place, good location
We really liked the location of this property, we could walk to all the sites. The apt was relatively spacious, given the age of the building and clean.
There were a few things that were a little annoying: the dining table was too small. We actually ate a lot of meals in, especially breakfast and it was crowded for four ppl. The beds were not that comfortable. We have traveled a lot, and are all in pretty good shape, so have no issues with firm beds, but members of our party had some back and hip pain. There were no dish towels and no spatula. (We bought one) The wi-fi was very slow, especially in comparison to other places we stayed in Italy and Europe.
I realize that most ppl come into Florence by plane or train, but communication about parking garages outside of the ZTL would have been appreciated, since there is only so much information you can get from the internet.
Eleanora was responsive and we appreciated her restaurant and grocery recommendations, help with returning our rental, and providing us with a dish towel.
FYI...due to older wiring in the building we could not run the AC and the washing machine at the same time which was a little bit of an issue for us since we were there in July.
But overall, we enjoyed our stay and loved Florence.
A perfect location for exploring Florence
We were here with 2 adult and three children, and the location was perfect. The apartment was clean and well-equipped, quiet, and exactly right for us since we wanted a "typical" experience. Alberto was easy to work with and very responsive.
There's an excellent fruit and veggie shop just a few doors away. Lots of great restaurants in the area, a grocery store a few blocks away, and a fun park with playgrounds right by the grocery store.
We loved being here. We'd gladly stay here again.
There are 40 stairs to get to the door of the apartment, which seemed short to us, but keep it in mind if mobility is an issue.
Disappointing but adequate
This apartment was decent but with a few disappointments. It was in a great location, an easy walk from the train station and easily walkable to the main sights. It was dimly lit and noisy from street traffic (except for master bedroom which was in the back)
However, the sound from the nearby church bells was an added charm. Kitchen was well-outfitted, but lacking in bowls for our cereal in the morning.
A new insulated window with triple glass has been installed in the bedroom facing the street and noises are now completely cut off. Bowls for cereal are not commonly used in Italy but they are now included. Additional lighting power has been added to lamps in the apartment.
I hope that this will help my guests to appreciate my lovely apartment.
