Right in the heart of Florence but no air conditioning!
This property would have worked out really well for us but it was in the upper 90’s and there was no air conditioning so we checked out on the first night
Cozy place in a great location
The room is located in a very convenient spot in Florence and offered everything we needed for a perfect stay! The hosts were very gracious and very helpful. I would certainly stay here again if I ever make my way back to Florence.
The Cathedral a two minute walk, the main museums and monuments of Florence within walking distance; also excellent as a base to take part in the exhibitions taking place at nearby Fortezza da Basso, which can be reached on foot in about 10 minutes.
