Quiet, spacious apartment in Florence
We stayed in the Colonna apartment for six nights in late September. It is large, comfortable and well-equipped, in a quiet neighborhood. From our perspective the location was ideal — somewhat outside the central historic area, away from the tourist traffic, but within a 10 to 15 minute walk of almost everything. Only the Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens were a little farther away. There are a number of excellent restaurants nearby, as well as everything else necessary. Cosimo is an excellent host. Pre-arrival communications with him were easy, and he was unfailingly helpful during our stay.
Thank you, Russ! I'm really happy you had a great stay at the apartment and in Florence in general. I hope to see you soon.
The apartment is located in a nice neighbourhood with shops and restaurants nearby.
Cosimo was excellent, meeting us at the apartment to familiarize us with the area. It’s close enough to walk to many of the tourist attractions but with a park, grocery stores, coffee and gelato shops, etc nearby. It had everything we needed for our stay.
Great location, comfortable wand well-furnished apartment.
The apartment in a great neighborhood. the furniture is very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. There’s a great market just a few blocks away with all kinds of fruits and vegetables, wonderful cheeses and meats, etc etc. we would definitely stay there when we come back to Florence. Grazie, Cosimo.
Dear Richard, Thank you for the kind message you left. It has truly been a pleasure to have you in Florence. I hope to see you again here!
Beautiful apartment, housekeeping an issue
This is large, beautiful apartment in a residential area but easy walk to everything in Florence. The only problem was substandard housekeeping. The apartment needed a thorough cleaning and the highlight was the shower, which was covered with black mold. To his credit, the owner came on a Sunday to try to clean it, but it was clear he didn't really see a problem. Also doesn't get that rental apartment should have hand soap, toilet paper and dish towel. Nice person, though. Just needs a better housekeeper.
Dear Randall, i’m happy you enjoyed the flat and the nice neighborhood. The apartment cleaning is done by a professional company. I’m sorry you noticed something wrong, but I wouldn’t call few small stains between the white tiles a major issue. Anyway, as you kindly mentioned, I came to take a look and cleaned it. Of course, toilet paper and soap are always provided, as well as all the other things all guests need. Clearly, some things might run out after one or two days and need to be purchased at the local supermarket, two minutes from the apartment. Anyway, I hope you had a great stay in Florence. Thanks.
Comfortable and a good location
We stayed for a month from mid Sept to mid Oct 2017.
The apartment was comfortable and in a good location for bus connections or for walking into town. You should not keep a car in Florence as the parking price is too high and you have to keep your car outside town due to the ZTL zones. My mother and sister joined my wife and I for 10 days and there were beds and linens and towels for them at no extra price although the rollout beds were just adequate.
Great apartment in a wonderful neighborhood
This is a great apartment in a very good location that is in a residential area about a 15 min. walk outside of central Florence. Near a school, park and many bus lines you really get a local feeling. Also a easy walk to the Central Market which is a must do. The owner had really good communication and met us to show us around. On the first floor and lovely windows that open up to the garden. The only thing I would suggest is getting a better mattress or at least a mattress topper as we had to put every blanket we could find to make the bed comforatable enough to sleep in and replace the shower curtain, easy enough fixes. We had a issue with Homeaway processing our 2nd payment and that was a pain to deal with and we finally sorted it out but not something you want to do while on vacation in a foreign country. That being said I would highly recommend this lovely apartment and stay again myself.
The area is considered prestigious for the residence with beautiful palaces, with bus stops in front of the house in both directions, bars, restaurants, museums, theaters, gardens, schools for foreigners.
