An apartment with lots of character and convenient for all attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! Full of character, a cafe bar next door, a great Italian restaurant across the road and all the main attractions are within easy walking distance. What I particularly liked was that it felt like we were in the middle of the 'everyday life' of people living in Florence, even though we weren't far from the tourist centre. There were also lots of interesting books in the apartment about the history of Florence and about art. Would certainly stay here again.

A taste of the real Florence

  • 5 of 5

Maurizio's truly impectable flat was a great centre from which to explore Florence (10 mins to station, 10 mins to Duomo, 10 mins to Accademia and very close to everything else). It was very clean with great kitchen and bathroom, nice linens on the beds and little touches like soap, teabags etc. It was super, super hot in Florence (a heat wave - the hottest for 50 years apparently!!) when we were there and the flat had a little balcony and Maurizio had provided lots of fans, which really helped. There are some great restaurants in this area and a little Carrefour which had everything you could need. A good home away from home.

Departamento amplio, cómodo y muy bien ubicado!

  • 4 of 5

Excelentemente ubicado. A pocos minutos caminando de la zona histórica de Florencia y de la estación de trenes. Decorado con un estilo agradable y simpático.

Confortable, aunque en verano es indispensable que le coloquen aire acondicionado. Solo cuenta con ventiladores y no son suficientes en julio cuando el calor en Florencia es tremendo.

El dueño muy atento. Se mantuvo en contacto permanente y nos ayudó a resolver dudas.
