Wonderful flat in the Mercado Centrale area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the Catarina flat. It was a short walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station and very convenient to most everything we wanted to see. Gabriele met us with the key when we arrived and showed us around the flat. There is a notebook with a map and restaurant suggestions. The flat was clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was updated. The sofa makes into a bed but we didn't need to use it. The area is quite busy but when we closed the shutters at night we didn't hear a thing. There are so many restaurant options within two blocks plus the Mercado has a great food court. We ate at the restaurant just to the right of the flat door twice. It was excellent!

We would absolutely stay here again!

Lovely apartment to explore beautiful Florence!

  • 5 of 5

Gabriele was an accomodating host. The apartment was very clean with comfy beds, and the location is perfect! Lots of good restaurants, shops, and the centrale market at your doorstep! Easy walk to Duomo area as well as train station. Highly recommend the Lorenzo apartment for tourists.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a great location. Florence is easy to walk, but this apartment is right across from the market so grabbing food was easy.

We stayed with our son and the living room is loud so he was unable to sleep well there, but you couldn't hear the street noise in the bedroom. Therefore I would only recommend this location for two people.

The bathroom would be better if there were some shelves between the mirror (above the sink) and the shower for some storage. The shower was small and the were broken, but luckily my husband is handy and could get it to stay for us.

The brick exposed walls provide a nice look and the pictures provided on the site are illustrative.

Perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was the perfect chance to be right in the middle of the heart of Florence. It is so close to anything you could want to visit and it had everything we needed. The bedroom was set back from the street so it was nice and quiet for sleeping. Gabriele had a huge list of wonderful restaurants to visit as well as a map and help with anything we could need. This was a wonderful stay--thank you for sharing your apartment with us!

Exactly as described in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a great one week stay at San Lorenzo Apt. Apartment was exactly as described, clean and well maintained and worth its very fair price. The location is superb. 2 mins from the train station and most major attractions in Florence. The apartment is directly opposite the Mercato (central Market) which has everything you need. Downstairs is an open market and upstairs very good food and drink in a very busy upmarket food court which is popular with the locals. Considering how busy the place is no noise bothered us in the apartment and the bedroom is upstairs away from the street. The square outside has very good restaurants including Za Za which serves the best steak ive ever had. There is many eateries and drink establishments within a 2 minute walk including two craft beer bars (Brewdog and Mostedolce).

We were met promptly by Gabriele who was very polite,thorough and spoke excellent english. He didnt bother us for the week but was on hand by phone if required. We would and probably will stay here again.

Perfetto, sempre perfetto!!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo potuto vedere la illuminazione del mercato, che bella! Vicinissima a centro di Firenze, anche la stazione SMN. C'e una doccia e un bagno pulito. La camera da letto era molto molto calma. Alla prossima volta, sicramente scelieremola.
