A lovely apartment in the heart of historic Florence

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adult travellers were very comfortable in the 2 bedroom Affresco unit. The balcony bedroom has curtains for privacy from the person who is using the living room sofabed. The second bedroom with it's ensuite bathroom was luxurious. I'm not sure what the compilcation was regarding our booking, but Danila seemed very confused and upset when we arrived. A long heated phone conversation got it sorted out but we were very concerned that we would be out on the street! It was all sorted out and we still have no idea what happened. Supplies were strangely limited - not enough toilet paper, only 1 dishwasher tablet, only 2 clothes washing tablets, no dish cloth/sponge. One of the hair dryers had a North American style plug on i - did a previous guest steal the Italian one?! Despite these small difiiculties, we really enjoyed staying in the apartment and how close it is to the train station, Duomo, Uffizi, Accademia and other sights in the historical centre. We would happily stay here for return visits to Florence and recommend it whole-heartedly to future guests.

Owner's Response: Happy Jill you loved our apartment! Danila knows that she must ask at the end of check-in if our guests need something more, we are glad to satisfy every possible and reasonable further request. Thank you again

Residenza Rondinelli is an ideal vacation for your Florence trip!

  • 4 of 5

Residenza Rondinelli is a very central flat to all of Florence’s amazing sites. We arrived via Santa Maria Novella train station, and it was just a 10 minute walk (with all our luggage and 3 adults, and 3 teenagers). The flat is spacious and beautiful and has a dishwasher, which is helpful when one is cooking a lot at home.

Gianluca is a very responsive host, and was very gracious in accommodating my request to stay another night when I realized I hadn’t booked it for our last night! That was so helpful not to have to schlep all our luggage to a hotel for the just one night.

If you are planning on staying for several nights, cook at home often and do laundry, let Gianluca know, and he may be able to provide extra household supplies (washing machine detergent, dishwasher detergent, and garbage bag liners) then there are normally.

The supplies that were provided were; one roll of toilet paper per bathroom, two dishwasher tablets and a very small amount of hand soap and dish soap. There no washing machine detergent or paper towels (but that was an oversight we found out later).

Danila was the person to meet us at the flat, and it was so helpful that she was on time. She is great at showing you around, and you can text her if anything comes up and she is very responsive (we didn’t have enough towels for our party, and she was there within an hour to give us more).

Check out was very simple, all we did was start the dishwasher, and take the garbage and recycling down and across the street to dispose of. Danila met us promptly at noon and returned our deposit.

Residenza Rondinelli is an ideal location, and we would definitely stay there again (if Gianluca and Danila would have us!).

Excellent apartment for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is wonderful, clean and in a great location. There were 7 of us and we had a great time staying here. We wished we could have stayed longer in Florence. The shower in the bathrooms are high pressured, although our first night we didn't have hot water. Danila (speaks little English but very nice) forgot to show us how to turn the water thermostat on. We emailed Gianlucca and he responded immediately. Next day we had hot water and everyone was happy. The bedrooms are large and the kitchen is well equipped. There is a great café right next to the apartment and many restaurants located nearby. The apartment has a lift which is helpful especially since we had Grandma with us who has limited mobility. The air conditioning works well in every single room. I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay here on our next visit to Florence.

Spacious & in a really great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and roomy, and only up one flight of step. It did have an elevator if needed. A couple of suggestions, though. It's very difficult to locate this street. We came by train and it's only a five minute walk from the train station, but we had a difficult time finding it, even with a purchased and detailed map. The woman who meets you at the apartment does not speak english, so it's hard to communicate with her if you need anything upon checking in. It would have been helpful if they had some addresses of a supermarket. You have to remember that it's not a hotel and should bring shampoo and soap, although there is handsoap in the bathrooms. I would stay there again for sure though. We also had a hard time using the a/c at first, but we did figure it out and were thankful to have those units, since it was so hot! We were a family of four 2 adults, 2 teens. Also, nice that there was wifi, however it only worked in a couple of the rooms.
