Why Giovanni Fabbri chose Florence

I bought this house in 2007 to go and live there when I'll stop working in a few years in the meantime I rent it. I am very happy to do it because I have the opportunity to contact people from all over the world. And I like to think that they also prove the same emotion that I felt when I looked out from the windows seeing "Della SignnorIa square"

What makes this apartment unique

Here you live Florence in his heart. You are 50 meters from the 'deli Uffizi gallery' museum, 100 from the cathedral and a few minutes walk from the major monuments and museums. The area is one of the oldest and most famous jewelry shops. There are still goldsmiths, one right next door to the apartment

Convenient flat in a terrific location

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Arnolfhouse is a very good place to stay in Florence. The location just could not be better: it is on a corner of the Piazza Signoria, where the Uffizi Gallery is located, and around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio. Everything you want to see in Florence is within a 2-5 mn walk! The bedrooms are spacious and well furnished; the beds are very comfortable and there is a lot of closet space, duvets and towels. There were 7 adults in our group and there was plenty of room. The flat is clean and well stocked with cooking utensils, plates, mugs, glasses… the owner provided some of the necessities (dish washing liquid, toilet paper, coffee…) so that we did not have to rush right out to buy things. There are several markets nearby for food shopping. The kitchen and bathrooms are simple- they could use some renovation- but adequate. The owner (and his assistant) were most helpful: he negotiated a good rate at the nearby garage for our car, suggested an excellent take-out restaurant just downstairs, came over on the weekend to raise the heat as it was a bit cold (being January) and he was gracious and flexible about our departure time. We had a relaxed, pleasant stay and would love to come back.

Brilliant Florence stay

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We arrived and were met promptly by the wonderful Neil even after a late change in plans. The apartment exceeded expectations - beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, great spacious areas, amazing kitchen facilities, a place we would love to have been able to spend longer than our planned two days. The position is exceptional - no more than a 15 minute walk to any of the beautiful sites of Florence, and looking out our window we looked straight onto Piazza Vecchio - and the beautiful square. Coffe, shopping and history our door!

Great stay at ArnolfHouse

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was my first experience using a home away or airbnb, so needless to say I was a little nervous about what I was getting myself into. Gianni put my mind at ease with great customer service throughout the entire process, and when I arrived and saw the accommodations I was able to breathe a sigh of relief. The location was centrally located to many major sites, and we were able to walk to almost everything. We stayed in Florence during a less busy time, so we didn't have much trouble with noise from the street, but I could see how that could be a problem during the summer.

As far as the accommodations, two of the four bedrooms were extremely large, and the other two were more of a typical small European room with two single beds in each room. One of the two bathrooms was a little strange because the shower wasn't separated from the toilet or the sink. But I figured that was just one of the quirks of staying in an old European apartment.

All in all, our stay was great, and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to be right in the thick of everything in Florence.

Owner's Response: in "Della Signoria" square there are always many people in winter time too . In the apartment you do not hear any noise because it has very strong anti-noise windows. No one complains about noise iven in the summer

Great stay for a large group

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Perfect spot in Florence right by the Uffizi Museum. 4 bedrooms with two baths but be aware second bath has toilet in the shower. All in one! Felt weird to use so we only used as a half bath. Living room area was super spacious and a great gathering place with a large kitchen table. Air conditioning was great and an absolute must in warm Florence. Place could use some more updating. Kitchen very old Newer windows in bedrooms was nice and kept out the street noise. Beds were very comfortable especially compared to other rentals we were in while visiting Italy. Plenty of extra towels and washing machine and clothes rack were a bonus. Overall a great experience.

Wonderful Florence apartment

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our 3-generation family group of 8 people recently spent 4 nights in this apartment. It is a spacious well-appointed apartment, larger and more beautiful than the photos indicate. It suited us perfectly. Everyone felt there was lots of space and plenty of privacy. It was stinking hot in Florence throughout our stay so we were very grateful for the apartment's very effective AC. The location is fantastic, right be the Piazza Della Signoria and a very short walk to the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, the Duomo and other spots. The location also makes it easy to stop in for a rest or a forgotten item during the day.

We would offer just two suggestions. It would be helpful to add towel racks/bars in the bathrooms or bedrooms to make it easier to dry wet towels. Right now it is hard to find a sensible place for that purpose. And it might be time to replace the upholstered chairs in the living room, which are not very comfortable, and maybe add a third one.

All in all, a fantastic apartment! We were so happy to come back to it at the end of each day.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location. You can easily walk to all the sights, shopping and restaurants. There is a cute wine bar next to it and the grocery store is very close. The piazza had a band almost every night. The owner response to question quickly and is very helpful. I would definitely recommend this.
