Excellent!

  • 5 out of 5
We chose this apartment because of the reviews, the terrace and the location. It was everything we had hoped. Paola met us when we arrived and gave us all kinds of help with directions, restaurants, etc. This apartment is only a couple of blocks from the train station making walking with bags easy. It is on the 6th floor, large and bright and spotlessly clean with a wonderful terrace looking out over Florence. We were traveling with our 2 teenage daughters and they were quite comfortable on the twin size pull out sleeper chairs that we made up with sheets and bedding. The kitchen is quite small but we did not cook. It appeared to have every item one would need to prepare a meal. The bathroom is large and has a small front loading washing machine in it. Rather than hang our clothes to dry on the terrace, we just went downstairs and used the dryers in the washateria located next door. We had a glass of wine while we waited. I can't say enough about the view. The terrace runs the entire length of the living room and dining room with 2 sets of French doors opening out to it. You can see all across Florence. There is a nice little table and chair set out there as well. The location is central and walking distance to everything. Although really close to the train station and walking distance to all the "must see" things, this apartment is not in a really touristy spot, which is what we wanted. There are nice neighborhood restaurants all around. There are at least 2 little grocery markets on the same block and a larger (by European standards lol) a block away.
The apartment has character and is very nicely decorated but it is not like staying in a super modern hotel. If that's what you're looking for then this isn't the place for you. If you want Italian charm, an owner who takes pride in her apartment and great location then you've got to stay here.
We loved this apartment in Florence and would highly recommend it to other travelers.

bright, spacious apartment with a lovely long balcony and great view

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice bright, spacious apartment with a lovely long balcony and great view. Bed is comfortable and there is plenty of closet space. The location is very convenient and an easy walk to the Mercato, Uffizi and other city sight as well as to the central bus and train station. The owner, Paola, is conscientious and pleasant to deal with. My husband and I stayed for a week in June when the temperatures soared to 38 C. We had some trouble with the remote control for the AC and Paola came over to the apartment immediately with a replacement remote that dealt with the problem. The only negative is that there is no counter space in kitchen which makes it difficult to prepare meals …. but then again, who wants to cook while on vacation! A highlight for us was our day trip to the Cinque Terre, aka the Italian Riviera. Overall a great apartment and a very enjoyable holiday in Florence.

The apartment was perfect for us. Great neighborhood with markets and restaurants - close to train and bus stations. Everything we needed for a perfect ten days.

Lived up to expectations.

  • 5 out of 5
Convenient location with everything you need close at hand such as small supermarkets, bakeries, fresh pasta and restaurants. Close to the station and easy to get to the sights and the Oltrarno. Plenty of space for a family. The kitchen is tiny but manageable for a couple but I think it would be a challenge for a larger group who wanted to eat in. The owners, Paola and Alfredo, were very helpful ensuring we knew how everything worked and in recommending restaurants etc. The best part was the balcony and view, great to come back to after a day's sightseeing. We enjoyed the bustle of the street below, once the doors were shut and we were in the bedroom at the rear, noise was not an issue. I know there is a review that says there is no point going to Piazzale Michelangelo as the view from the balcony is as good - this is simply not true. Yes, the view from the flat is lovely but one evening go across the bridge and hop on a number 12 bus to the Piazzale (number 13 back down), you will not be disappointed.

The view is truly fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
As other reviewers have mentioned, the view from this upper apartment is unbelievable. Looking over the city with the Duomo rising above it all every day and evening makes this a special rental. We were fortunate to have sunny, warm weather in March so that we could enjoy open doors and the balcony. Florence is easy to manage on foot including arrival from the train station. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped. Paola was very responsive and helpful prior to our arrival with directions and answering questions. Alfredo met us and gave us a thorough tour pointing out the information giving instructions for all appliances. A good choice for a comfortable Florence experience.

Stop looking elsewhere, this is the one!!!

An absolutely fantastic rental. Alfredo met us downstairs when we arrived, and gave a great tour of the apartment. Make sure you notice the pictures of Alfredo playing polo, neat touch. The location can't be beat, you are very close to the train station, and numerous restaurants. The Doumo is a very short walk away, and you will certainly want to visit the Doumo because every morning and night the view from the balcony is the whole of Florence laid out in front of you. The pictures in the listing are true to the actual view. Another bonus, there is an elevator to whisk you up to the apartment. My wife and I can't wait to come back and spend more than 5 days, a truly excellent rental!!
