Excellent apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, would definitely recommend! Due to our flight being delayed by many hours we had to keep the owner up extremely late in order for us to get into the flat but although it was the early hours of the morning, she ensured we were ok and got us into the apartment. The apartment is a good size with all the amenities you could need and is a very short distance from the Ponte Vecchio and central Florence. Would definitely recommend!

Charming, clean and had all the necessities needed. The air conditioning could not keep up with the hot summer that was upon Italy. In the evening it was impossible to fall asleep before 4 am because the apartment would reach temperatures of 30 degrees, which would make it difficult to sleep.

Pictures are deceiving

  • 3 of 5

Florence is a great city and the apartment is in a great central location! However my husband and I are what you might call germaphobes, and we were disappointed to find black hairs all over the sheets. We enjoyed the balcony but be aware it is at street level with lots of foot traffic. Be prepared to give other tourist directions! The apartment is very secure however and in a safe area!

Beautiful apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a perfect choice for our visit to Florence. It was clean, very tastefully decorated, and the location was ideal. The woman who met us at the apartment was friendly and efficient, and made sure we had everything we needed. We would highly recommend this apartment to friends looking for a lovely place to stay in Florence. Stefania was very responsive to our inquiries when booking our reservation, and made it very easy to plan our accommodations. Thank you, Stefania, for helping to make our Florence visit such a positive experience!

Tight Bathroom

  • 3 of 5

The location and view were superb as long as you can stand the climb. We loved the exercise, but if you have bad knees or a bad heart, you better get a taxi or car. The bed was wonderful. The kitchenette is nice, and the windows were the best part - old world shutters with modern glass that seals out the heat. Very clean place. The big complaint and reason for the low rating were all because of the terribly cramped bath and shower. Its a long tunnel. When I stretch out my arms, both elbows touch. Also the shower head kept falling off the wall. There is about eight square inches of counter space in the bath.

Very dirty apartment

  • 2 of 5

Sadly, the apartment was not what we expected. The bathroom had black mold all over the walls and the shower looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. There was no water pressure to take a shower and the air conditioning did not cool the apartment. If you walked on the floor without shoes your feet turned black.

Owner's Response: Apartment is absolutely not as you described it. Lucky that only your review is so bad, otherwise you would have created a serious damage. The conditioner works well as well as the water with good pressure. I'm sorry that some guests for different reasons, disgracefully saying false things. I'm really sorry.

Places to be missed: Bardini Garden is just 1min walk away with a beautiful view of the city, a few meters ahead of Forte Belvedere, 3 mins, the Ponte Vecchio with its ancient goldsmith shops. It is possible to visit an old goldsmiths laboratory: Massai Orafi.

It takes a short walk to Palazzo Pitti, with access to the beautiful Boboli Gardens, the Uffizi Gallery where you can access the Vasarian Corridor.

At 10 min walking distance, you can reach the Cathedral and the Basilica of Santa Croce.
