Comfortable stay & close to all attractions

  • 4 of 5

Our host greeted us on time and was helpful in showing us the apartment. It was clean and well stocked. When we had missing light bulbs and a flooding shower our host took care of it right away. The apartment is very central to most attractions in the city and only 5-7 minutes walk to train. If you are looking for a quiet area of town this is not the place. The apartment is on a faily busy street with street noise, some traffic, and people who loiter at nearby establishments. Beware the height of the doors. We are tall and had to duck into the front door and the laundry door. Ceilings low and not much light in apartment. All amenities in good working order. Comfortable stay.

Nice Florence Apartment, Good Location

  • 3 of 5

Wife and I with our adult daughter stayed for three nights prior to relocating to Scarperia for my brother;s wedding. It was our third trip to Italy. We liked the apartment. All worked well for us except the steep stairs up from the entry. Have to remember that the Italians start their floor count at zero. Really like the location as eats, drinks and groceries are close by. Taxi was handy except Friday evening, then impossible. Walking distance from the SMN train station and most tourist attractions. Did I say tourists? OMG. The city is overrun with them. Scarperia and the Chianti countryside were a welcome relief. Thankfully Italy is off our "bucket list".

Very nice central apartment

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, nice bedroom, well equiped kitchen, lovely bath. The bedroom is quiet, you hear the street noise only in the living room. We walked every were - all the atractions are near. 2 supermarkets nearby, open 7 days a week. Exelent Wi-fi, all over the apartment, and a big screen TV.

Made for a very nice holiday.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time here with my sister. It was nice to have a lot of space. The only bummer was that I was so looking forward to taking a bath in the jetted tub, but the jets didn't work. Other than that, it was great, and Maira always responded to my emails promptly.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Nice big flat, close to train station. Shower was very small, but had bathtub as well. Wifi was good. Could use a tea kettle. Neighborhood was fine, can get a little noisy at night, but bedrooms are in back of flat.

I loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

I had the good fortune of staying at this apartment late October, into November for 2 weeks. I really like this neighborhood and the place I usually stay at was not available. I ended up choosing this place and really lucked out. The kitchen is fantastic. The bedrooms are located in the back of the apartment so we got a quite night's sleep. The apartment was very cozy, and also most important to me, very clean. There is a one flight walk up. There can be street noise at night in the living area (I didn't mind) as there is a restaurant located directly across the narrow street which is very popular with the locals. Also, a pizza place, (my fave) right next to it. There is a grocery store close by as well as several food shops. It is about a 5 minute walk to the train station, and about 10 minutes to all of the tourist attractions. All in all, a great find.
