We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It had a very comfortable, homey feel and plenty of space for 7 adults and 1 child. We were able to cook meals in the kitchen, and it was also a great location near plenty of restaurants and shops. We especially enjoyed going to the nearby Farmer's Market. Guido was also very helpful in detailing specifics and showing us local places on the map and providing recommendations. I would recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
The location was lovely, close enough to walk to sites but not too crowded. The apartment very pleasant and comfortable for our group of two grandparents, two parents, and two granddaughters, ages 7 and 10. The beds and bathrooms were very nice. We also appreciated the well-equipped kitchen.
This apartment worked for our family of six.
The owner was a gem answering our questions immediately.
Easy access to public transportation, markets and grocery stores but we walked most of the time.
Love that elevator!
We just finished an amazing four days in Florence, thanks in large part to Guido and his beautiful apartment. The pictures on the website are an accurate portrayal of this very cute 3 bedroom, 3rd floor apartment which has a new and modern elevator. The building is very secure and is in a very nice neighborhood with many shops and and great places to eat. The master bedroom has a king size bed, which is unusual for Europe. We were also provided with an extremely helpful map in which the owner circled things such as the closest market and gelato store, as well as all the major tourists destinations (Uffizi museum, Duomo etc). He even provided the name of a local doctor in case of an emergency! We were also given instructions on how to order a taxi via text (Amazingly easy and convenient!). Arranging to rent this place could not be any easier and will recommend this place to all of my family and friends.
The property is conveniently located about 5 minutes walk from Piazza Beccaria, where several city busses as well as sight seeing busses stop. Piazza Della Repubblica, Piazza degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and many other famous places are 15-20 minutes walk away.
The property is clean, quiet and comfortable. The owner provided all information we needed upon our arrival. The property can accommodate 6 adults.
This is a roomy 3 bedroom apartment that is a 15 minute walk from most everything in the center of Florence. 3 bedrooms with the third one with twin beds very suitable for kids or teenagers - our girls loved it. The master is very roomy and the second bedroom is good size with a separate shower. Well equipped and the washing machine was a godsend since it was very warm on our first stop in Rome and also in Florence.
Good security and the lift (elevator) was fantastic since it would have been quite a walk every time to get to the second floor apartment (which is really the third floor).
I recommend this apartment and knowledgeable owner. We certainly would stay here again if we visit Florence again. The listing was right on target and we choose it based on previous reviews which were also on target.
