***( Please note that some of the reviews were left for another apartment. ) ***
This nicely decorated apartment is located at the heart of the historic old town Florence yet positioned such that you enjoy full tranquility of a Florentine stay. It is located on the way from the train station to Duomo in San Lorenzo neighborhood. The apartment is on the first floor ( one level above street level with 21 steps ) of a historical building. It has a twin room soon after the entrance door. A small corridor takes you to a living room with a large and comfortable sofa and a dining table for 4 guests. The open kitchen is attached to the living r...oom. The kitchen has all necessary appliances such as fridge, oven, microwave, coffee maker, dish washer and more.
The living room has 2 large windows that fill the room with plenty of natural light and are opening to a quite and beautiful small street. Continuing the corridor on the left side, there is the second bedroom with a double bed and a large en-suite bathroom. This room has a window opening to a small court yard so it gets less natural light but is even more quite.
There is a second but small bathroom without the shower box at the end of corridor going to the double bedroom.
Supermarkets and shops are only steps away. The Central Market is just a minute from the apartment. You can enjoy the fresh fruits and food in this local market every day. Inside the market there are several small eateries where you can also enjoy a hot Tuscan food.
****PLEASE NOTE : Thanks to the ingenuity of its architectural design and its thick walls this apartment maintains a pleasant temperature even during hot summer days even though it doesn't have AC. But for those who need we offer 2 very good functioning fans ( Macom 998 Cyclone ) that can even be used as a AC with help of 2 ice packs included in the machine.***
A brand new and very convenient self service laundromat is right next to the building door.
Also a very convenient garage is right in front of the building. They charge around 25 euros a day. It is very hard to find a parking in Florence and for those coming with car it is an advantage to have the car in a safe place only one step away!
The following are set to ensure that I can provide a pleasant stay for all guests at a reasonable rate. Observing them is a requirement of stay and I highly appreciate your cooperation in observing them.

- Please do not use towels for any purpose other than hand/body drying.
-- Electricity --
The Italian electric power consumption regulations place a limit on using electricity per each apartment at a given time. Therefore, using several electric appliances at the same time results in circuit to shut down.

Adorable flat in the Heart of Old Town Florence Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Additional Location Information
The San Lorenzo area where this apartment is located is an old historic neighborhood in which, the Medici, the rulers of Tuscany resided. The palace of Medici Ricardi, the famous Mercato Centrale (the fresh food and Tuscan products market) are within a block or two away from this apartment. Also the famous leather market is right around the corner. The area is traffic limited as are all streets of historic center. In the same street, via Faenza there are several restaurants, café and a supermarket. It's a very convenient location to stay and explore Florence or even make trips via bus or rail to other places because the main train and bus station are also within a short walk from the apartment.

The apartment is small, but met our needs. The beds were firm but comfortable. The air conditioning was a plus! The large market was just around the corner which had every food item we could possible want. We were two couples traveling together and found this apartment to be perfect for our needs. We walked with our luggage from the train station. Marjan was waiting for us at the apartment upon our arrival. She is a sweet lady and very helpful.
We walked everywhere we wanted to go within Florence and found the location to be perfect. At night the street was very quiet too!

Great location. It was close to everything and the apartment was extremely well equipped. Marjan was fantastic - her prompt response to emails was much appreciated and the best we have received in our trip so far. She explained everything we needed to know, including the best restaurants in the area. Our only disappointment was that we didn't spend longer in both Florence and in this lovely apartment.
Fantastic place to stay in a fantastic city!

The apartment was very clean and comfortable, the owner was very accommodating with our check-in, and recommended some great restaurants. It is within walking distance of the markets, the museums, and all the great tourist attractions. I highly recommend this apartment.

This place is absolutely wonderful. The location is perfect and there is no need to venture out. The little neighborhood has everything. Marjan is the sweetest person. She thinks of everything and goes out of her way to accommodate what you need. Her suggestions for restaurants are fantastic. The apartment has everything you could possibly need. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.
Central and quiet

We spent 2 nights in this charming apartment, ideally located in a pedestrian street in Firenze historic centre. We appreciated the location, cleanliness, proximity of shops and ease of contact with our host. The only thing that could be improved is the comfort of the beds that were slightly too hard for us, particularly the sofa bed. But we would not hesitate to come back and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this address.
Elegant and Clean!

This apt is in walking distance of all historical sites, and in a great area for restaurants outside the tourist traps close to the Duomo. The apt is fabulous, spacious, clean and modern! Marjan handled all the details, made it so easy, and is a very competent woman! Everything was as mentioned on the internet, only, seemed better than the pictures can actually achieve. Thanks for such a great place to stay, we (3 adults) loved it!

Perfect accommodations for two couples to easily take in all the sights of Florence. Ideal location made it easy to tour all parts of the city.
