About the property

Ecxeptional View, Extraordinary Location, Easily Accessible, Completely New

An exceptional setting in the very heart of Florence 150 meters from the Dome.

Via dell'Alloro is a quiet street situated between the station, the Dome and the Medici Chappels. It is parallel to the main street of the center: so very close to shops, monuments and all you can see in Florence but at the same time quite without traffic.

A tourist could ask for no better location in Florence.

The home is on the second floor of a historic building without elevator.

Uffizi Apartment was renovated in 2016. Very elegant indeed with its contemporary furnishings, it is an enchanting place to live, highly functional and perfect in every detail.

Parquet, air conditioning in every room, two bathrooms and a spectacoular balcony.

It is warm in winter and cool in summer thanks to the air conditioning but also to the extremely massive walls typical of historical edifices and its excellent exposure. The large windows make for bright and airy spaces.

70 square metres about


From the entrance, on the links side, you have the first triple bedroom which is 20sqm, very large and bright. It also has a double sofa bed. One aisle leads to the first larger barthroom and then the living area, a comfortable parlor distinct from, but well-connected to, the kitchen that opens onto it further ahead.

From the living area you have the entrance of the second smaller double sleeping room with small privat bathroom. from the linving room again you have onother room (the dining room) the place is simply exception because of the view on the big Medici Chappel which is in front of you! You can hae a drink in the small terrace lokking at this monument that sems to be into the apartment.

The home can very comfortably accommodate even 6 adults. The two bedrooms are separate from the living area and the kitchen and the two bathrooms guarantee extreme privacy.

The living room can accommodate 2 people more because of the double sofa bed.

the living room is a comfortable space opening into the kitchen area and furnished with a soft sofa (which can become a double bed), a flat-screen television and book case. Here one can sip a drink before dinner or relax, reading or watching TV.

the kitchen is fully equipped, its colors light hues of pine, with a large refrigerator-freezer, oven, microwave oven, toaster and every utensil needed for cooking. The table seats 6-8 persons.

These ample spaces make for a quality of life that can last a few days or months and even years.

I'm teacher. I love teaching and also living in Florence with my family: Cristiana and Giulio.

DOME APARTMENT purchased this apartment in 2015

Why DOME APARTMENT chose San Lorenzo

Because it was a fantastic occasion of investment. I've found an apartment like this one for 2 years and finally I found it and I immediately baugth it.

It is very rare to find something like the Dome apartment.

As I saw it, my wife Cristiana and me have been immediately in love with it!

Great Location, lacks character and a bit small

  • 3 of 5

The location of the apartment is ideal, only 7 minute walk from train station and 2 minutes from Medici chapel and Duomo. A/C worked adequately, but not excellent.

We had to request our security damage deposit to be refunded one week after our checkout which conflicts with the other reviewer stating that it was processed promptly

The furniture is basic and simple (think Ikea). The apartment lacks character with walls bare of artwork or color, and has a dorm room feel. It serves as a place to sleep, but not really a place you want to spend a significant amount of time.

The apartment was around 500-600 sq ft. The layout makes the apartment feel smaller than it is.

We think this apartment is managed by a 3rd party as we were communicating with 3 different people when there and the person who checked us in wasn't sure who we were as they had 12 other check-ins that day.

The photos showed many decorations such as flower pots that are not present.

The dining room table seats 4 comfortably. (definitely not 8).

The amenities were very basic in the apartment. The DSL internet speed is very slow for today’s standards (tested at 5 MB/s), equivalent to the free wi-fi you get at the airport.

The body soap amenity is a 1 inch puck around 1/4” thick (for both hands and body). It seems more like something you would give out in a hostel. Luckily, we brought our own soap.

The clothes washing machine was broken upon arrival by the previous guests, and we understood that the host could not replace right away, however no compensation was offered for the inconvenience. We were just given the name of a nearby laundry facility.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Firenze and this apartment was a perfect spot for us. It was very clean and was well appointed in a modern style. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to explore or dine. Mathias was thorough as he checked us in, and gave us some practical ideas for our stay. The view from the small balcony was a welcome sight and enhanced the overall experience. I recommend this to anyone who is visiting Florence for a few days!

Owner's Response: I'm so proud about my apartment. One of the few in Florence with a super view on the main monuments. Very important: the Street is 100 metres from the Dome but it's incredible: quiet! No pubs, restaurants. This is very very important

Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing apartment. The location was ideal-less than a 10 minute walk from the train station. Mattias met us at the apartment and showed us all around. He spent lots of time answering our questions and giving us great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. So glad we listened!!

The apartment was perfect for our family. Two bedrooms with very comfortable beds and two bathrooms. The bathrooms are on the small side, but can't expect large ones in the middle of the city. There was a large washing machine with a great drying rack that came in very handy. Overall a very comfortable apartment that I would highly recommend!!

Additionally, it is very close to great restaurants, shopping, and museums. Would definitely stay here again!

Bathroom and kitchen unsatisfactory

  • 2 of 5

Although the location was very good, the kitchen and bathrooms were grungy. Showers were really small so you couldn't bend down if you dropped something. Balcony barely big enough for two and the view in the picture is deceiving, and not nice.
