Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The apartment 'Florian' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift ) of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence’s most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area with all the advantages that an area like that can offer

Spending time in my apartment is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s belltower and the splendour of Vasari’s frescos, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.

Florian directly faces the Duomo, giving you the sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble facade. The apartment has been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts.

Florian is a romantic and welcoming apartment comprising: a cosy living room with a comfortable sofa bed (120 by 195), a small and fully-equipped kitchen with a balcony that offers a charming view of Florence, a bedroom with two single beds (85 by 200) that can be transformed into a double bed. A small entrance hall with a splendid view of the Duomo and one modern bathroom with shower complete the description of the apartment.

All modern comforts are provided: air conditioning, LCD TV, satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, american coffee, WiFI internet dsl no cable, air conditioning, safe, security door and intercom.

CLEANING FEE: Euros 50 upon arrival ( check-in ).

STAY TAX

The city of Florence has decided to extend the “Stay tax” (introduced in 2011) also to private rentals (on top of Hotels, B&B and so on..)

The tax is 3.00 EURO PER NIGHT/EACH GUEST for a max of 7 nights ( see my rental agreement for more info ).

Florian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location with in walking distance to all classic Florentine venues. Quiet building with easy access to buses to anywhere. Many breakfast outlets and restaurants closeby. The Duomo bells are silent at night. Nightlife at outdoor cafe on next block goes until late, ear plugs a good option if light sleeper. Remember that ground is floor 1! So a 4th floor walk up is really the fifth floor. Stairs are easy, well lit. Worth the climb! Friendly and helpful owner who speaks English. We will stay here again.

very nice property located right in the heart of Florence close to all the action.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is great for 2 people. It has everything required and is very clean. Located directly across from the Duomo it is in very close proximity to stores, restaurants, markets and many historical sites. Even though you're right above all the action, when the windows are closed at night , it's very quiet and the air conditioning definitely helps in the heat. FYI, you need to be able to negotiate stairs at this apartment. There are lots of stairs but the owner also provides assistance with your luggage which was welcomed.

Wonderful location and thoughtful host!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay in Florence. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. True, there are a lot of steps but the view and the romance that of the apartment more than make up for it. Luca was a warm and helpful host. We will definitely be back!

Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was a privilege to spend our time in Florence in the Florian Apartment and it made our holiday. You couldn’t possibly get closer to the Duomo and the views are fantastic. The Apartment was very clean and comfortable and had all the facilities we needed. Luca was very friendly and helpful, explaining everything we wanted to know. Would highly recommend this Apartment if visiting Florence.

Cozy Apartment Overlooking the Domo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing stay here. Luca was very accommodating and made it easy to check-in even when we were delayed a day. Everything you need is less than a 10 minute walk and there are great restaurants and gelato places right around. The apartment was clean and comfortable and perfect for two. There are a good amount of stairs to get to the apartment but it’s worth the view. We would definitely recommend this apartment if you are staying in Florence.
