The apartment (100 sq. m / 1076 sq. ft) has 2 bedrooms, can host up to 5 people and has 2 bathrooms. It opens out into the living room where the guests will find a comfortable armchair and a spacious double sofa bed. The living room leads into the dining room and well equipped kitchen (both in the same room), furnished in blue which creates a unique but welcoming country and rustic atmosphere.

The area is mainly residential so there is a variety of grocery stores, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafes. In the area you will also find the “Stazione Leopolda”, Florence’s former railway station which has been converted into a vibrant exhibition hall used for events such as craft fairs, television and fashion shows and also cultural and business meetings.

Great Location and excellent price

  • 4 of 5

I just have to say Viviana was great. She met us the first day and let us check in early. She gave us a map of where everything was at and recommended some great places to eat and where the best gelato was. The flat was nice for the price we got it for. You have to be in shape to carry all your luggage up to the third floor as there is no elevator. The place was walking distance to everything we wanted to go to. It was very close to the train station. The only thing I would complain about was that the Wifi really didn't work the whole time we were there. The wifi comes from the hotel next door and we could never get connected. Thank you to Viviana again. Her information was very helpful to us!
