We stayed in the apartment for 10 nights and it was PERFECT for us. Right on Piazza San Lorenzo it was perfectly placed. We could (and did) walk everywhere in under 15 minutes. Also, because it was on the square, the traffic was limited to taxis, so it was quiet. It was also much larger than we anticipated. It was also nice to have a good WiFi connection since we didn't have a phone with us.

We chose this apartment because of the kitchen and location. The Mercato Centrale was a few blocks away so we could choose from so many different meat and fruit vendors to make some wonderful dinners and breakfasts. There were also many supermarkets nearby too. The kitchen had the supplies we needed (although we added some of our own). We started everyday with fresh coffee and breakfast of fresh breads, fruit, cheeses and even eggs all purchased within steps of the apartment.

The bed (a US queen) was great (and I have back issues). There was another bed in the front room and a pull out couch but we didn't need them. The bathrooms are a little funky, but they worked. We did laundry (which let us pack light). Now, being Americans, we weren't used to how the Italian washer worked and after some brief frustration, Gabriel, from the apartment management company, came by and in minutes we were doing our first load.

And to that, the staff were very helpful. There were all kinds of services they could provide which we didn't use, but it was nice to know we had some resources at hand. Even the people we spoke with when renting the apartment were very helpful.

We would stay there again in a heartbeat and have already recommended it to friends who are thinking of traveling to Florence.

Grazie for your Review of our San Lorenzo Art apartment.

The location is truly fantastic as you will be 5 minutes from the Duomo and you can enjoy great views of the San Lorenzo Church and annexed Medici Chapel.

The fee for our cots and highchairs is connected to the acquisition, storage, maintenance, upkeep, and transportation of these times.

We look forward to the possibility of having you in Florence again!

We thank you for your honest and detailed feedback on our San Lorenzo Art Apartment. Regarding the entrance of the building we have to say that it 's the first time that this issue was reported. After our inspection we have not encountered this problem. As for the kitchen we are pleased to inform you that we know that this issue has been solved and more kitchen items have been added. We would like to apologize for the unfortunate comment made by our staff , said as a flash of humor and with no intention of being offensive. We are sorry for the power inconvenient, but most italian homes have about 3 Kw electricity max power (3000 watt). If you use more than this power at the same time, there is an overload breakdown. Using n.3 AC split at the same time with other electrical appliances, could be the cause of the problem. We asked the owner to subscribe an upgrade (up to 4,5Kw) with the power company. The San Lorenzo area is one of the best and requested area to stay in Florence. It’s between the train station and the Duomo and is centered on the Medici’s old family church of San Lorenzo. San Lorenzo is a very famous and colorful neighbourhood for its daily street market and the new Mercato Centrale: a new large covered marketplace on the first floor where you can relax and taste the gastronomic excellence of Florence. Moreover we remember that this apartment is only 100m (0,60 miles) far from the Duomo. We remain at your disposal should you give us the opportunity to assist you in finding the most suitable accommodation for you on your next stay in Florence. Apartments Florence Team.
