Florence trip in style

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment and owner.

Ambra was fantastic, flexible and welcoming. Helped us with getting in to the apartment and an introduction to the apartment and area with suggestions.

Apartment was clean, updated, large and what a location. You can see the large cathedral in steps and walk to the train station. It was extremely hot but with AC in every room we slept well and could stay cool. There are even TV channels for shows, movies and news in english. We had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with a living room and kitchen so alot of room to not only see Firenze but feel like we lived there for some days. I recommend this apartment to anyone this is a better option than a hotel.

A fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

On our recent trip to Europe, we stayed in several apartments, which were are quite satisfactory, but none came even near the level of excellence of the apartment in San Lorenzo. One could not find a better location, at a stone's throw of the train station and the Duomo, and within easy reach of all major Florence attractions. The apartment is very spacious and has all the amenities one could possible wish for. Also, there were detailed instructions for everything and helpful information about the city. We can warmly recommend this apartment.

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as described and was a great stay for us in Florence. The beds were very comfortable and everything we needed was provided. Ambra and her daughter were wonderful to communicate with and prompt with their information. The kitchen is a full kitchen - you could easily cook a multi-course meal in it. The location is excellent - right in the thick of things. I highly recommend this apartment and hope to return myself one day.

We loved this apartment! It is roomier than the photos depict, and so comfortable. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, and 24/7 access to the owner in case of emergencies (never needed it). Plus, it has a washer/dryer combo! This was crucial. The elevator is most welcome after a day of wandering the city. Easy access to the train station. We would love to stay here again when we return.

Perfect location in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Ambra the owner was very responsive to our checking in early. She greeted us with a lovely welcoming package of various food items. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable with updated kitchen appliances. We were very pleased to find an American coffee machine which was very rare in Italy. We were a group of four adults from the United States

The location was superb right between the Duomo and the SMN tain station. Couldn't find a better location if we tried. Thank you so much Ambra.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We strongly recommend this property. We were met by Ambra who was extremely helpful and assisted us in having a great experience in Florence. The apartment was meticulously clean and very comfortable. The apartment is perfectly located near the Duomo,. it is in a building which was undergoing renovation when we were there, but it did not create even a slight problem for us. Would return to Florence and definitely stay at this property!
