Everything was exactly as appears if not better
Hostess, Beatrice met us early so we could drop our bags before a scheduled tour. She was very fast, kind, and helped us to get through the technical quickly so we could be on our way. Location was perfect. Seriously only a 15 minute walk to major attractions like the Duomo. Also, the views from the apartment was fantastic.
A negative was that there was a work crew doing repairs to old damage but they didn't start until like 0900 and were very kind to move to let me by. They were finished before we got back. It wasn't really a negative, but we happened to sleep in that day.... They were working during regular hours and Beatrice was trying to be quick make repairs on the place... So guess it's really a positive. Lots of stairs! But, there is an elevator you can use. One person at a time though.
If you exit the apartment and go left two blocks, then turn left again... That little Piazza was perfect for breakfast and dinner! People very nice and good food.
You need to book this place. Beatrice even left us a lovely welcome present. She is lovely.
Beatrice is a lovely woman who was super friendly and accessible. Elevator up is a one person elevator! It worked though. Still had some stairs to climb which was no problem for us just be aware. Place is perfectly located and had amazing views. It was very hot in Florence so don’t expect the air conditioner to cool you down like in the USA. They had a fan in the loft for the bedroom but could have used a fan in living area. Evenings you could open windows and sleep with them open. We did cook. Kitchen is small but manageable. Overall a nice place.
Great Location and Nice Host
This lovely top floor apartment was in a perfect location for walking to the major attractions in Florence. Beatrice was very kind and even greeted us with a bottle of wine. I wanted to mail a package back home to the states and Beatrice was very helpful. She walked to the post office with us and helped translate while we figured out all the custom’s forms and costs. The apartment has a beautiful view of the Duomo. We enjoyed our time and would stay here again.
THE GOOD, THE GREAT, AND THE GRAND!
We rented this location between July 7th and July 11th, 2018. I have nothing but praises for this wonderful piece of heaven.
To start, we were actually scheduled to be here around the same time in 2017. Tragically, I had a medical emergency that threw the entire vacation out the window. While this was (to put it mildly) heartbreaking, Beatrice was the only renter who even granted us an offer for the following year at 50% off from our original cost! She didn’t have to do this at all since my woes are not her problem. Yet, she was incredibly gracious and afforded us that offer as a result of our misfortune.
And trust me, once you step inside of her apartment, you’ll see just how glad we were that we were able to stay at her place.
The vista alone is worth the trip. Every window offers you a “Kodak Moment Cityscape” that‘s nothing short of breathtaking. Yes, you’re at the highest room of the building. You could see it as “having to climb that many steps,” or you could see it as “Oh My Lord, look at THAT VISTA!” Besides, there is an elevator that takes two people up at a time (helps to cut down the climb).
The apartment is central to EVERYTHING! It has excellent air-conditioning that cools the place down in a jiffy. The WIFI is super solid! There is a coffee maker, cutlery and dishes, and plenty of lighting. A market is nearby, along with a plethora of places to eat. TV has a signal for regular channels (great if you happen to be there during a World Cup, like we were), and there is a washing machine and a drying rack.
The person who received us was courteous (prefers to speak Italian or Spanish), and immediately pointed us to the booklets that Beatrice had prepared with all sorts of information and recommendations for the stay! Beatrice also left us a big bottle of water and a bottle of wine as a “welcome,” and was immediately available if we needed her.
Yes, while Florence is what you’re here to see, having a comfortable place is a must for completing was was otherwise an unforgettable experience for myself, my husband, and my two very delighted kids! The apartment was the perfect respite for a hot summer afternoon and we would definitely come here again—no questions asked!
Great choice for a wonderful stay in Florence
3rd+ floor loft apartment with views over the rooftops. A very convenient stay in heart of city yet still quiet. Apartment is clean and nicely decorated. Owner is a lovely lady who lives in the building. Our family of 4, including 2 grown/teenage boys, had an enjoyable vacation. Only concern was the air conditioning that took better part of a day to cool down the loft, however once cooled off it remained very comfortable for the rest of our stay.
We would certainly stay here again and recommend to others.
Great location and nice apartment
Very nice apartment. Beatrice was very helpful and kind. Apartment was close to everything.
from Florence Airport you can take a taxi. See the link for prices:
from the train station you can:
1) take a taxi (5 minutes/10 euros)
2) or if you prefer and don't have too much luggages you can walk from the station in the direction of the Duomo, pass the Duomo and take 'Via del Proconsolo' and then ask for 'Via de' Pandolfini'. This will take about 15/20minutes and it's a nice walk through the historic center
3) take the bus number C2 ( attention the bus is little!! If you have a lot of luggages I don't suggest you) and ask the driver to let you down in 'via Ghibellina', in front of Bargello museum.
The loft is next to Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, in the heart of Florence.
The loft is located on the fifth floor, you can take the elevetor until the fourth floor, than you have a flight of stairs.
Tuscan cusine offers intense flavors and aromas while cooking simple, almost poor, vegetables and meat are combined to bring out their natural qualities. There are food markets in the area of Sant'Ambrogio and San Lorenzo, where you can find farmers who sell the their products. The shopping is varied: the shops of high fashion in Via Tornabuoni, in the stalls of Piazza San Lorenzo there is something for every purse. Restaurants and wine shops are everywhere, in Florence, home of Chianti Classico. The theaters offer very good music and performances.
Stay in the Loggia is like being on the deck of a ship, but there isn't under the sea, but the city of Florence. It dominates the whole city and its finest monuments, thanks to large windows that surround on three sides. We admire from the south east to south west, the church of San Miniato, the Michelangelo's Forte Belvedere, the tower of the Bargello, the church of the Badia and the Palazzo della Signoria, then we move the eyes to admire the dome of Brunelleschi and the Bell Tower of Giotto, ending with the hills of Fiesole located on the north side of the house. This sense of ownership of the city is almost inebriant, the breathing is full and rewarding, surrounded by so much beauty you can breathe differently and live with a complete awareness. Reading, listening to good music, go out and be in the heart of the city give a particular character to this small house and yet so large. Few can be in Florence and dominate it both spiritually and practically. No noise comes to the Loggia, but just get to be immersed in everyday life and masterpieces that are intensely aware of Florence, perhaps, the most artistic city in the world.
