The apartment reflects its exterior surroundings as it has been carefully decorated in a typically Florentine fashion. Once you enter the apartment on that has two windows on the Via San Giuseppe and has a splendid view of the basilica and of the bell tower of Santa Croce. The room with a queen-sized bed is very comfortable and entirely furnished with antiques.

The kitchen is perfectly equipped and completely renovated.

A wonderful apartment in central Florence

  • 4 of 5

The space was lovely with a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious bedroom. We enjoyed our stay and the vase of roses left by Rosalba to welcome us.

We were met right on time, after a short taxi ride from the train station. Everything was as expected and very comfortable. We did have to walk up a few flights of stairs, but that was not an issue. Around 2am there would be a bit of noise from partiers walking by, but it only lasted a minute or two. Otherwise we didn't hear any noise from outside. The train station and all other of the other sights we wanted to see were within a 25 minutes walk, we had a wide choice of restaurants and a market nearby, so the location was perfect.
