Delightful and wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5

Very accommodating and very comfortable stay! We especially enjoyed picking up groceries from nearby market and preparing a home cooked meal. Loved the "Bar" just around the corner serving delicious hot chocolate. Close to museums, shops and many Fiorenze sites. We could not access GPS with in the city limits so important you locate on local map before driving into city. Parking garage was also convenient. Wish we had time to visit the owner's business but time passed too quickly.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Florence Tower apartment. Stephania's friend Irene met us, helped us get our luggage up to the first floor and explained everything thoroughly. She did an excellent job. Communication with Stephania during the stay was easy through the Homeaway portal. She helped me with arranging bus transportation to Siena and for a taxi to the airport for our final day. The apartment was as pictured on the website and was so convenient to walk to museums, shopping and restaurants. I do have to mention that there was a lot of street noise that I heard from the master bedroom late into the night almost every night, so bring your earplugs. The only other issue we had was with the stove. We never really got the burners to work properly, but that might have been due to my inexperience with lighting a gas stove. I hesitated to use the cigarette lighter provided. I think one improvement would be to provide long kitchen matches or a butane lighter with a long handle. The real plus items were comfortable beds, air conditioning and hot water and good water pressure in the shower. Would I stay there again? Emphatically, YES!

Great apartment, very near the Duomo.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice, and Stefania and Irene made sure we had everything we needed for our stay.

The king bed was very comfortable. Two of my kids slept on the twin beds, and the third on the sofa sleeper. She said it was the most comfortable sofa sleeper she had ever slept on.

One note about the location. It is fantastic in that it is right down the street from the Duomo just one block off the main drag. However this does come with a downside, there is a lot of noise from the street at night, not so much cars but people walking by in various stages of intoxication. So if you plan to go to sleep early for an early get up the noise could be a problem.

Location, location, location! This apartment is in the heart of Florence ideal for exploring.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the train station and walked to the apartment which took about 15 minutes. It was easy to find and we were met by Stefanio who talked us through how things worked in the apartment. The apartment itself was well equipped, clean and tidy. Both bedrooms had air conditioning which was much appreciated as it was very warm. However the living room/kitchen could have done with air conditioning!

As you step out on to the street you are minutes from all the major sights such as the Duomo, etc. Also there are many shops and restaurants on your door step. With the excellent location does come street noise however this did not really bother us as we were tired after a day of sight seeing so slept well. We would definitely stay again.

The property is well located, near every museum in town, but the building was in construction, so a lot of noise and also they say it has AC, yes but only in the rooms not in the living room.
