I can’t wait to return
This apartment was exactly as pictured and described. Location was fantastic - comfortable, clean, and with very easy (walking) access to all the sites and train station. Would definitely recommend!
A perfect stay in Florence
This apartment fulfilled all that was promised, including a very comfortable bed, two elegant bathrooms, comfortable furniture, all very tastefully appointed. Nice comfy robes were a pleasant surprise. The kitchen was beautiful and we were greeted on arrival with fruit, prosecco, Chianti, Nespresso with supplies, pasta and all the amenities of home. We were so centrally located that we never required a cab. Walking to all the many museums and churches in Florence was never more that 15 minutes, and we had fun mingling with the students from the nearby Accademia, singing karaoke at local trattoria's nearby.
Our hosts were on the spot to answer our few questions, providing us with wireless speakers to allow us to play our music from our phones. We stayed for one week, and enjoyed living like a local. We would return in a heartbeat.
A comfortable, elegant apartment
We loved this apartment. We were there for about a month and loved every minute. Not only is the apartment impeccable but everything in it is also of the highest quality. Top-notch furniture, dishes, linens, etc. The furniture was old school comfort, murals in the hallway and on the door, a huge and beautifully designed kitchen/dining room, elegant bathrooms. Living in this apartment really made us feel immersed in Florence. Location is very near to Il Duomo but just far enough so that you don't have to deal with all the tourists. Plus it has so much great food nearby. The only downside was that the wireless could be a bit hit and miss at times. Otherwise this place has it all.
Beautiful apartment centrally located
My wife and I stayed at this apartment on the Via Santa Reparta for ten days. We were meet by Paolo (Mario’s brother) when we arrived at the apartment. Paolo showed us around the apartment and explained how things worked. Paolo also lives in the building.
The apartment is clean and more than ample for two people. My wife and I enjoyed making breakfast in the huge and well equipped kitchen. The online pictures are excellent representations of the apartment. It is truly beautiful.
The apartment is well located and within easy walking distance of major sights including San Marcos, the Duomo, San Lorenzo, the Medici Chapel, Central Market, Uffizi, San Croce, Pitti Palace, and the artisian shops in the Oltrarno. In addition, you will find several grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants around the corner. If you are planning to take the train for side trips, Santa Maria Novella station is within walking distance.
Paolo is a gracious host and helpful in everyway. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Florence.
Convenient location, spotlessly clean, solicitous landlord -- everything we could have wished for.
From the warm welcome and tour of the apartment, to the same kind attentions paid to making our departure smooth, it was the perfect place to stay. Walking distance to the places we wanted to visit, including the Pitti Palace across the Arno, and just around the corner from Cafe Rainer (best pastries in town) -- the apartment is as described, including many thoughtful touches to make the visitor feel at home. The internet needed a bit of adjustment but the landlord was immediately responsive, and it was fixed, and stayed fixed for the duration of our stay. We would gladly return.
