Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was the perfect final stop during our trip to Italy. It was finished with beautiful artwork, and lovely amenities were everywhere! Our group of 4 women found it very comfortable and the absolute perfect location for all the must-sees in Florence. It was truly a delightful surprise. Maria and Rita were the best to work with. Thank you for making our visit in Florence even more special. We would love to return!

Florence at its Best

  • 5 of 5

We are well traveled and luxury hotels are the norm for us. Even with that background, this apartment impressed me more than even the best hotels in New York. A combination of great space, perfect location, and a luxurious décor is just the beginning. There was an element of professionalism that exceeded even my high expectations. Every detail was considered by these owners, yet it is oddly very affordable at the same time. If you double your prices, I’ll still be back. It was truly an experience of a lifetime. I have never had a better experience….anywhere. Brenda, North Carolina, USA

Owner's Response: Your review gratifies me so much because, beside my care in the things that can simplify the stay in Florence, I put my personal passion in the décor hoping to exite an emotion in the guest. Thank you very very much for your wonderful feedback, I really hope that you will come back soon!

Quaint apartment, centrally located

Our family of 5 stayed at this lovely apartment the first week of April. It's located within walking distance of all the major cultural highlights Florence has to offer. Well equipped with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Would definitely recommend.

Elegant, Quiet and Romantic Apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious two bedroom apartment with soaring wooden ceilings and the right balance of old world charm with contemporary style. We spent a week in the apartment. Just off the Plaza San Lorenzo, on a lively street with cafes and small markets. We felt very safe in the neigborhood. The apartment is walking distance to most museums, cathedrals and Boboli Gardens. We never had to ride a cab (only to the airport). We did a day tour to Siena and the Tuscan countryside. These tours meet at the train station - a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The kitchen had all you needed to prepare meals, adjacent to a large and ample dining room table where we openned many great bottles of wine. The master bed, bedroom sheets and bath towels were 5 star hotel quality. The large washer and dryer came in very handy. The bathrooms, shower and bathtub were very clean, new and refined - excellent water pressure. The apartment is in a quiet building, no fussy neighbors or loud noises at night. Highly recommended.

Perfection! Best apartment in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so beautiful and the location is great! So close to everything! A lovely mix of old and new - even better in person than pictures! Lots of space for our family of 4. Nice balcony for coffee or wine! Immaculately clean and comfortable. One of the best apartments we've ever stayed in!! Love the coffee shop - le menagerie - just below for a quick breakfast, plus went there for drinks and live music one night. So close to duomo, Mercato centrale and so many good restaurants! Rita is very responsive to requests and made our stay go very smoothly. Hope to return again and will recommend to all friends traveling to Florence!

Elegant and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here for a week while we were visiting our son who is studying in Florence. We enjoyed the beauty of the apartment, which is far above what most similar apartments offer. It was immaculately clean and the linens and towels were of high quality. There was no street noise as the apartment is located within the building. We also appreciated its central location, only half a block from San Lorenzo and around the corner from the Palazzo Medici Riccardi with its extraordinarily beautiful frescoes in the chapel. There are excellent restaurants nearby, two grocery stores and a public market. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it highly

Just delightful! A superior experience.

  • 5 of 5

You will be impressed and satisfied with this immaculate apartment right in the center of everything in Firenze! Coming "home" to this flat made our stay in Italy a totally comfortable experience. Professionally maintained and luxuriously appointed, we found bathrobes, slippers, cosy cushions and throws to snuggle up in. And best of all, a completely heavenly bed with very fine linens, just like home! Getting good sleep is very important to us, which was a major factor in our enjoyment on this journey. Venturing out of the Ginori flat is also immediately rewarding because the beautiful Duomo and the fabulous Mercato San Lorenzo are right there in the neighborhood, not to mention a one-of-a-kind dining experience right next door where the salads are amazing and the cuisine is a lighter (dare I say "California-style"?) version of all your Italian favorites. We were on our honeymoon, but could easily have brought our (grown) kids along and still enjoyed quiet and privacy because the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the flat and the building itself is so solidly built you never hear a neighbor. Best of all, a window in every room and a sweet little balcony outside the french doors of the living room! For a couple, a foursome or a small family, this apartment is a real treat. (I wouldn't bring small children, myself, there are steps up and down and decorative items within easy reach). Our next trip to Italy will definitely be planned around its availability - I can't see us staying anyplace else. This was my fourth trip to Florence and for value, location and comfort nothing beats this flat.

The apartment is located in the heart of Florence: just next to Palazzo Medici Riccardi, at the corner San Lorenzo Church complex. 

This is an area with a lot of shops, restaurants and grocery stores including the Central Market (Mercato Centrale).

It takes less than 5 minutes by walk to the Duomo, the Mercato Centrale and the Accademia Gallery, less than 10 minutes to the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio. Finally, it takes about 10 minutes by foot to reach the Santa Maria Novella railway station, the central and most important in Florence.

This excellent location will allow you to discover by walk our beautiful city and its historic centre, Unesco World Heritage since 1982, which is mostly a quiet pedestrian area.
