What Past Guests Are Saying

Clean, airy, central location - just right.
This apartment was perfect for our 3 day stay in Florence - 2 adults, 2 children. The location was excellent - no more than 5 minutes walk to Il Duomo and about 10 mins to all the other major central, historical & artistic destinations. This was crucial with a 6 & 8 yr old in tow. Everything we needed was on our doorstep - gelato vendors (crucial!), cafes, an extensive leather market - fabulous handbag bargains! There's a pretty good mini-market a few doors down with good fresh stuff and pretty much everything you could need, including speciality Tuscan produce.
Everything is well within reach - historic piazzas, grand cafes (make sure you're sitting down when the bill comes), churches galore, the arno, Ponte Vecchio, the galleries . . . . it's sublime. There's also the usual array of high-end designer stores but really, who needs that when you're surrounded by the stuff that actually matters?
Although situated on a very busy (pedestrianised) street, the apartment was quiet with the windows closed (& air con on), but the daily bustle was atmospheric. The area is packed with students as well as working Florentines and market stall workers. It's pretty noisy when they're trundling their stalls down the cobbles at the beginning and end of every day, but having lived just off Portobello Road, I was used to that particular noise. Luckily the bedrooms are at the back of the apartment, therefore quiet. The main bathroom is spacious and modern, the second ensuite a bit of a squeeze but ok for the kids. The apartment is well equipped and the washing machine was a bonus. It's very clean. Did I mention that already?
Loved it when there was a thunderstorm. We watched it with the windows thrown open as the torrential rain cleared the street. Everything was quiet and sparkling afterwards. We ventured out to Il Duomo and the piazza - where did all those pesky tourists go? We almost had the place to ourselves.
We had an excellent time in Florence and managed to see (and show the kids) everything we hoped to see - and more. It's such a treasure-trove. My 8 yr old boy's highlight was climbing the 463 steps to the top of Il Duomo. Breathtaking views. Worth it if you have the stamina.
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!
Loved our stay at this apartment! It was clean and beautifully decorated! A short walk to all the sites. Highly recommend to others!
Conveniently located, very clean and everything we needed
Perfect location. Amenities were excellent. Host was flexible and helpful with recommendations. Would stay again.
Location and Elegance!
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. Renovations make this cozy apartment a great place to rest after long day of walking and shoppong. Working with Marjan was fantastic -- she was always available to answer questions.
