Impecable departamento!

  • 5 of 5

El departamento es igual a lo que se muestra en fotos,amplio, equipado,muy cómodo para cinco adultos. Esta ubicado cerca de las paradas de colectivos, a poca distancia de barcitos, restaurantes, de Ponte Vecchio. La pasamos increíble y Rocco muy amable! Estuvimos allá del 28 al 31de julio y realmente se disfrutó la estadía

Great stay by Porta Romana!

  • 5 of 5

Rocco was an excellent and attentive host, the property was exactly as it was described, the property is well located, near the bus stop and taxi station. The street is well illuminated and quiet. Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace are 10 minutes away. There are a couple of grocery stores near by will a vast variety of goods. Also there is a butcher near by if you would like to make your own Bistecca a la Florentina ( Florentina Steak Cut). The apartment is on the main floor, easy access, very secured, quiet ( keeping in mind that in Florence streets are narrow and there are people tons of people walking at all times). A taxi from the nearest taxi station ( Porta Romana) to Ponte Vecchio/Plaza Señoría / Plaza Republica / Plaza Santa Maria de Fiore will cost you around $11 to $13 depending on the time of the day. The bus will cost you around $1.20 and it is good for 90 minutes. All and all a great stay!!!

Amazing apartments!

  • 5 of 5

Location of Rocco's apartments is perfect for those, who want to avoid noisy tourist crowds and to be close to everything. Apartments are next to Porta Romana, Palazzo Pitty is 10 mins walk, Ponte Vecchio is only 15 mins. Neighbourhood is really quiet, which is what you need after a day in noisy historical center. For those travelling on car, there are plenty of parking spaces around which is quite rare for Florence (you are just outside ZTL area, so no headache with driving to apartments and parking)

Apartments are new, has all amenities we needed, small private garden was really good for breakfast. We realised that in reality apartments are better than they look on photos.

We felt safe and secure in the area, and Rocco made us feel like at home. I would definitely recommend these apartments for those visiting Florence!

Rocco, thanks for your hospitality, hope to come back to your place in future.

Alex

Owner's Response: Gentile Sig.ra Potevin , sono dispiaciuto dell'accaduto con acqua calda , ma la caldaia e' andata in blocco ed ho provveduto al suo riarmo appena mi ha messo a conoscenza del fatto . Riguardo il cane che abbaia ho gia' chiamato l'amministratore per parlare con proprietaria dell'animale per trovare una soluzione . Mi dispaice che la vostra vacanza non sia stata così piacevole alla nostra proprieta'. Spero poter rimediare magari un'altra volta in futuro . Un cordiale saluto Rocco Ascani
