This was our second time staying in this flat. This is a nice little flat in an ideal location with a comfy bed. It is up several flights so would not be a good choice for those who have difficulty with stairs or may have a pram with them. There is a bit of street noise but you’re going to get that in the centre of any city.
This is in a brilliant location only 5 minutes walk from Uffizi Gallery, 10 minutes from the Duomo & 20 minutes from the Raiilway Station (or get bus number 1 at the station & get out at the Uffizi stop). Ponte Vecchio bridge was also only a few minutes away. A nice little place on the top floor of a house in a small side road, it had everything we needed. No microwave but all the cooking utensils/pans that you may want to use. Also a washing machine & iron with a table top board. Would book again if visiting Florence.
We had the greatest luck to stay in this beautiful home in the heart of the city. All necessary things were present and the host did recommend to us the best ice cream and sandwiches in the world. Thank you Marina for the great service.
This beautiful little apartment was perfect for three. One bedroom with double, one loft with single. Convenient walking (5-10 minutes) to the Uffizi, local groceries, take-out food, sit-down meals, Santa Croce; the Duomo, Accademia, and Ponte Vecchio (10-15); Mercato Centrale and the train station (20-25). We spent three nights here and it was ideal for us. We cooked in and the kitchen was well-equipped. The stairs to access the apartment are steep and narrow -- you wouldn't want to bring a lot of big luggage (rolly bags were fine). The corner shower might be a tight fit for a larger person, but it was fine for us (I'm 6 ft, 185 lbs). The church bells and pedestrian noise could be a detraction to some, but we happily accepted it as part of living in this charming city. The terrace was lovely, but not much use to us in December. I would happily recommend this to friends and family, and look to rent here again if returning to Florence.
This apartment located in the heart of Florence was just perfect for me. Perfect location - in the heart of the city, perfect size, perfect terrace, perfectly decorated, a perfectly gracious host...i'd love to go back soon!
