Nice and clean apartment in historic part of Florance

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the apartment. It's close to most of tourist attractions of florance and also plenty of restaurants and shops are steps away. The building itself is an older historic building but the unit is newly updated and fully equipped. The reasons I gave it 4 instead of 5 is because this a loft and not an apartment as advertised. The bedroom is not separate as advertised. Also there is no elevator in the building so if you have lots of luggage be prepared for a good hike carrying them upstairs.

Nicely appointed studio in good location

  • 4 of 5

The purple suite is a nicely appointed studio apartment located in a bustling neighborhood close to many Florence attractions such as the beautiful Duomo and the Medici chapels. It is also in walking distance of the train station which was very handy for our travels. There are plenty of coffee shops, restaurants and shops nearby. The building is charming and old, with many steps to the apartment on the second floor. One thing to note is that this is a studio -- one big room separated by an attractive purple divider. There is a king sized bed behind the divider and a pull out couch in the main living space that also holds a kitchen wall and glass table for seating. We were a party of five so an additional cot was supplied. There is one bathroom which is quite modern and clean with good water pressure and heat. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and Mariangela is responsive to emails. I think this apartment is ideal for a couple or a family with one or possibly two young children.

Amazing Apartment with great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the purple apartment and it was fabulous. High ceilings, clean, updated appliances and all the amenities that you need. Mariangela was great to work with and answered any questions very promptly. The apartment is right in the center of Florence. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the train station. Great places to eat and sights to see right out the front door. I would highly recommend staying here and if given the chance to come back I will definitely be staying here again.

Fabulous apartment for small family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the purple apartment and it was just perfect for us. Mariangela was able to provide us with all we needed for our 18 month old, it really made things easy (kids dishes, highchair, porta crib). We loved how we were right in the centro of Firenze, it was wonderful. We also had all we needed to cook a simple meal when we felt like it. The apartment is well appointed and very clean. It's great to stay somewhere that looks like the pictures and not worn and old when you see it in person. Mariangela was great and answered any questions we had prior to our arrival. Upon arrival she also booked us our taxi to the airport which was very helpful! We would definitely stay here again, just need to save up for our next trip!

OK! I cannot say enough great things about the apartment. Let me start by saying the location could not have been better! Mariangela met my husband, 2 daughters (17 & 15), my mother and myself upon arrival into Florence. We stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. The 3 beds as well as the sofa bed were extremely comfortable. We loved the apartment the second we walked in. It is bright, open, high ceilings….adorable!!! We walked everywhere seeing all of the major sights and the apartment is about a 5 minute walk from the train station. The open market, major sights and great shops are just down the street. We would definitely stay in the apartment again. Absolutely no complaints! A REAL GEM! Thanks Mariangela!!!!

Fantastic stay in Blue Sky Suite!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in the Blue Sky Suite. Mariangela was quick to respond to all of our inquiries prior to and during our stay. The apartment is well-maintained, clean, and central to all attractions in Florence. All of the little touches in decor made the apartment really feel like our home away from home. We would not hesitate to rent from Mariangela again.
