“Very dissapointed”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

First negative review we make for Italy. Appartment advertised as quiet. No traffic noise heard however the balcony at the back of the building overlooks about 8 gardens that contain dogs. We had constant barking when leaving the building and returning to the building. This then went on for hours. Shower very poor. The bar that held the shower head was loose and therefore the shower head could not be moved up or down according to your height. My husband did it one night and it came out and it hit him on the foot. Could be dangerous for a child. Also water pressure was very low so all you got was a dribble. If a tap was turned on water to the shower went off. Problem with that was when it came back on it was either very hot or very cold. Table next to sink in bathroom has a plastic top with very sharp edges and I recived a cut from it. Dont open the bathroom window as it is a roosting site for pigeons. The smell was poor. Couldn,t leave the window open so it was very hot in there. Pillows like concrete slabs.
On the plus side the kitchen is well equiped, good air con. Person who checked us in was very polite and helpful. Appartment very close to the Duomo.

We are really surprise about the review. We would like to underline some aspects that are not related to the apartment itself: 1) the water pressure depends on the pressure of the public aqueduct, in August due to the lack of rain there was dryness as a consequence the administration of the city decided to reduce the pressure of the water; 2) the plastic top over the table next to the sink, as you said it is in plastic and it is rounded and nobody got cut in the past; 3) the bar that held the shower goes up and down, you need to push the button inside otherwise you can not moved it (you should ask before). As relates to the pillows this is a person view, it is your thinking but I think that it should be an issue. For the pigeons we found nest and it has been removed.

“Great apartment, felt like home away from home”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Fabulous location close to everything we wanted. We were able to live like locals (although we shopped like tourists). The apartment is secure, private, clean, spacious and airy and has lovely views from the balcony. We were able to shop for groceries close by, the Duomo was only an eight minute walk away, and our favourite restaurant (Ciro and Sons) only 10 minute stroll. I would definitely book this apartment again if I was travelling back to Florence.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been to have the address of the property on the confirmation invoice.

“fantastic ,perfect location right in the heart of Florence and get away from hustle and bustle by chilling on balcony”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent quite a while trying to find an apartment with perfect location close to centre and near the train station , also a balcony to chill away from the busy crowds , and this was what we was looking for in a place to spend our holiday. Also very clean and we were given advise on best places to visit and eat.

Third floor apartment (with lift) close to the university and within 10 mins walk of the centre. Small supermarket on the way back to stop off for essentials. Spacious with small balcony overlooking neighbouring gardens. Had a good welcome with lots of tips of places to visit and restaurants.
Well equipped kitchen and bathroom with washing machine. Comfortable bed and pleasant lounge area.
