Ottaviani Terrace Apartment in the old historic center of Florence in Piazza Ottaviani
average rating of 4.1875 based on 16 reviews

The apartment was big and comfortable , even with the long flight of stairs.

  • 1 of 5

Had the worst check in experience,the agent who was supposed to welcome myself and my family, was rude and called me names,we found the washing machine broken and was never fixed. I asked them to call me and they never did and no apology or explanation or refund was offered. I plan to excalate the matter once I am back in the states. Considering the great experience I had last year with VRBO, this was such a let down and it is wrong that an agency with the various agents involved , can ruin the good reputation that I am sure VRBO wants to maintain .

Great Location in Florence - Lots of Stairs

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a great location in Florence -- very close to the train station. It is also on what I found to be the loveliest square in the city -- Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Plenty of restaurants, pubs, and bodegas close by.

It is important to note that the apartment is on the top two floors of the building with no lift / elevator. It is a bi-level (duplex) with the third bedroom -- really a garret -- on the uppermost floor adjacent to the outdoor terrace. The two bathrooms are on the lower floor.

So if you have any ailments -- like bad knees -- it is a climb to the apartment itself. And a climb within the apartment. You can see there is also a loft with a ladder in the pictures. That can handle over-flow sleeping for the spry. We did not use it.

The kitchen is sparsely equipped. No working toaster. And bring your own corkscrew (aka wine tool).

Great Location and Very Functional

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in Florence by train and found that the apartment was very conveniently located and towards the center of the main attractions for tourists. The owner's representative met us promptly and provided good instructions, and the owner left some great restaurant recommendations. The apartment was a good size for our family of four.

nice apartment, great terrace, nice central location

  • 4 of 5

Nicely furnished apartment. Convenient to many attractions as well as the train station. Nico who checked us in was very helpful, and recommended the Osteria Santo Spirito, which ended up being our favorite restaurant in our 9 days in Italy. Biggest issue with the apartment is noise - located on a busy street with noise throughout the night. Upstairs bed also creaky, so sleep was not the easiest. We also had issues with the washing machine, but at least it had one which is more than the other two places we stayed had. Overall, a great place, especially if you are a heavy sleeper.
