What Past Guests Are Saying
Great apartment in the center of Florence
Yes, it is a "Lovely two Bedroom flat in the heart of Florence". There were five of us ladies "of an age" for a week+ in Florence. The apartment was perfect. Location couldn't have been better-steps away from the "must" see sites. Centrale Market just a block a way. Good restaurants nearby. The apartment was clean, well maintained and comfortable. Marjan was great. Enrico (downstairs at the Gelato shop was exceptionally nice). Definitely recommend this place.
Fyi - there are about 8-10 narrow steps going up to the apartment, it was not an issue for any of us but could be for other travelers.
Comfortable flat in a perfect location!
My two teenagers, my husband and myself stayed in this flat for four nights in March. The weather was quite chilly but the flat was cozy and well-heated. We especially appreciated the heated towel racks in the bathroom. We walked to the flat in 5 minutes from the train station. We found the flat perfectly located for exploring Florence. We were minutes from all the museums and beautiful piazzas. We wandered the few blocks to the beautiful Duomo every evening just to see it glowing huge in its square. There is a fantastic restaurant at via Faenza, 95-97, Trattoria Pizzeria Nerone. Excellent food, good prices. There is no laundry in the flat but a laundromat just a few steps down the road. The flat is above a great gelateria. The kids made friends with the owner and ate at least two gelato every day! The main market is one block behind the flat and the kitchen is pretty well equipped to prepare simple meals from fresh foods bought at the market. Marjan met us at the flat upon arrival and departure and was helpful with getting us phone reservations at the Uffizi and the academia, as well as with getting a taxi to the airport. When we return to Florence some day, we would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Marjan!!
A really great stay
We are a family of six and we stay for 3 nights in this lovely flat.
the place was very comfortable, it was really close to everything, very clean and very comfortable rooms. The internet worked well as all appliances. The sofa bed in the living room is designed for people without back problems because the mattress is a little thin, but for a couple of nights really doesn't matter.
Finally everything was perfect and i recommend it anyway. Marjan was really kind with us, and she answered all ours questions it was a great service. And we would like to return without any hesitation.
Cozy and comfortable getaway!
The apartment was a nice size for 4 of us. Very warm and great location. Marian was delightful to deal with!
A Magical Christmas
Our family of four stayed in this lovely apartment for five nights over the Christmas period. We were welcomed by Marjan who had thoughtfully bought us an Italian Christmas cake, some champagne and some fresh fruit. The apartment was set up with all of the essentials that we needed (ie cooking oil, dishwashing detergent, salt & pepper, tea & coffee, garbage bags, soap etc).
The apartment is excellently located (it is on top of a gelatto shop!). We walked to all of the sights that we wanted to see. The leather markets and the central food market were close as were many fantastic family restaurants.
We hope to return to Florence one day and would love to stay here again.
San Jose CA
Fantastic apartment in a Great Location
My family of four stayed in this wonderful apartment the first few days of 2013. This two bedroom, two bath apartment is two blocks from the Santa Maria Novella train station, providing an ideal location for exploring all that Florence has to offer. The reservation payment process is easy via Paypal, and Marjan was there to make the check-in/check-out process a breeze!

Great Location...great apartment!
While traveling 5 weeks in France and Italy this was our base for Florence. Located within walking distance to the train and major attractions the location was perfect. We were met at the apartment upon arrival and departure which was most helpful and efficient for getting our security deposit back. The apartment was clean and efficient with comfortable beds. It offered a good selection of books about , Italy, Florence and Tuscany. Thank you for such a great base to explore such an amazing city from

New Braunfels Texas
Fabulous Florence apartment
Great apartment and location!! This was one of our favorite destinations on the trip. Accommodations were very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed (including full size coffee pot!!). The manager, Marjan, could not have been helpful and accommodating - a sweetheart. But the location...ideal! The Markets are one street over! Our favorite restaurant is just one block towards the small Duomo (Trattoria Da Guido...order the fresh pasta with pear - to die for!) and the bus/train station only two blocks away. Another highlight is the Gelatto store downstairs and the owner, Enrico, a delight and speaks great Engligh (tell him hello from the Texas ladies). Everything is within walking distance. We will definitely want to stay here on our next trip and have already recommended to friends!! Much to see in Florence, so plan to stay four nights. We only booked 3 nights and regret not having more time. Enjoy!
Response from Marjan - 12/14/2012
Thank you for your nice words. Hope to see you again.
Girls' Annual City Break
Super Weekend Break!
A lovely small apartment in fantastic location for sightseeing, everything within short walk. Very comfortable and clean with friendly and efficient service for prompt check-in/out. Thoroughly recommended. However, be aware that if you need to use the sofabed there is noise from the street below overnight in the lounge.
Response from Marjan - 10/28/2012
Thank you very much for choosing this apartment for your stay and also thanks for your recommendations. We will have some of your friends staying here next year!! Hope to see you all again.

great stay in Firenzi
My family and I were in Firenzi for two weeks this July and staying at this cozy and charming flat made all of the difference for our experience in Italy! The place is well located,well equiped and well cared for. We loved it and felt really at home!
Not only were we comfortably accomodated and had easy access to all amenities we needed, but enjoyed Marjan's friendly welcome and constant attention.
We definelty consider going back and satying at Faenza 22 again (maybe for a bit longer next time).
Response from Marjan - 08/07/2012
The most amazing guests I could imagine to have. I look forward to your return. Marjan
Florence at your doorstep
This flat at via Faenza 22 is perfect. Everything is within in walking distance - The Duomo, Marcado San Lorenzo, Acedemia, Uffizi, the train station - all within minutes. We loved the location because we could take in sights in the morning and then enjoy the apartment's a/C for a few hours before heading back out for the evening. Marjan was very accomodating and easy to reach during our stay. We will stay here again.
Response from Marjan - 08/03/2012
It was very nice to meet you all. I would be more than glad to host you again. Thanks
Orange County, CA
So Charming, so Tuscany!
We all adored the place in Florence. We were 5 traveling with my 12 year old twins and 80yr old father. The place is very charming and comfortable. Decorated so it feels like you are in Tuscany. We had plenty of hot water (which is usually an issue) and great air conditioning. Very easy walking distance to the train station (even for my Dad), Doumo and Ponte Vecchio Bridge. 10 steps up to the flat that were easy, even for my Dad, to handle. The best Gelato place just below - we visited several times a day. Say "Hi" to Enrico and try the chocolate milkshake. The street vendors are right around the corner, selling wonderful leathers and many other items. Marjan left us little coffee amenities which was a nice touch. She was very kind to hold our luggage and allow us in as early as she was able to. We can't wait to visit and rent from her again! Thank you for a great experience Marjan!
Response from Marjan - 07/18/2012
DearÂ Vanessa, it was really nice to know you and your family. I will be so glad to host you again.
An Ideal Experience
The lovely two bedroom flat in the heart of Florence was just as advertised. It was located in a perfect location. The flat was well maintained and very clean. We stayed there for almost a week with two couples and there was more than enough room for all of us. The best part of the experience was Marjan. She was a joy to work with prior to the visit and was a perfect concierge during the visit. She was always available and always helpful. Marjan truly made Florence our favorite place to stay.

It was a totally enjoyable experience.
My husband and I, retired seniors and our
daughter stayed here for one week. We were very happy with the accomodations.Our room had a king size bed and an ensuite bath and our daughter's two bed room had the lovely bath across the hall. Everything was exactly as suggested in the ad and was very clean and comfortable. It was also situated very conveniently to many of the favorite tourist attractions as well as the necessities such as markets and laundramats. We had a very enjoyable time in Florence and would certainly stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.,
Response from Marjan - 06/25/2012
It was nice having you here and I hope you come back to stay at this apartment next time you visit Florence. Marjan
Great Location in wonderful Florence
Our party of two older couples throughly enjoyed staying at this flat. It is in a great location: close to the SMN train station, close to the Central Market with other day-to-day shopping immediately below and nearby to most of the attractions of Florence. The relatively new traffic arrangements in Florence means that the flat is very quiet. Marjan was extremely helpful with initial advice and follow-up help with the WiFi and TV. While there is no washing machine, the laudromat is just a few steps away and very convenient. Overall, it more than met our expectations and we would happily recommend it to all.
Response from Marjan - 06/25/2012
Thank you very much Paula for the nice review you left. I'm happy that you enjoyed visiting Florence and staying at this apartment. I look forward to your return. Marjan
Although my husband and I with our 2 adult children, stayed here for 2 nights only, we felt very comfortable and safe in this Florentine flat! We loved the 2 bathroom feature...that was a great plus. Central aC was another great option when needed. Very accessible to the train station, ATM, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, shopping and all the historical sights. But most of all, the hosts Marjan and Nick are the stars of this rental property. All of you who have dealt with them, know. For those who are on the fence, just do it...this is a great place to stay in Florence!!!
Response from Marjan - 05/26/2012
Jocelyn! you have written such a beautiful review. Thank you for taking your time and doing it. I hope to have a chance to host you again next time you come to visit Florence. It was our pleasure to know you and your family. You left the apartment in a really perfect condition. Everything was in order like the day you entered. Thank you again, Marjan
Fernandina Beach, Florida
Great living space in heart of historic district of Florence
This two bedroom apartment has everything you need in a location that's close to train station and within walking distance to most all of Florence's sites. Beautiful and clean, up 1 flight of stairs from the street level, we enjoyed the people watching and being part of the local routine (after we got used to the street noise!). Rental agency is close by and Marjan was always available to help us with any advice we needed on restaurants, or getting around the city. She made us feel at home immediately for our 4 night stay. We would definitely come back again and stay longer - tremendous value for your money, with everything you need close by!
Response from Marjan - 05/23/2012
Thank you very much for your kind review. It was our pleasure to host such a nice family. I hope to see you again. Also thank you very much for your kind invitation. We would love to visit you and your family when we come to Florida. Marjan
very comfortable apartment in great location
Seven of us (four adults, three teens) fit in this flat very nicely. One of the kids had to sleep on the floor each night, but otherwise it suited our needs rather well. 2 bathrooms - very clean and up-to-date. Nice little kitchen. We loved sitting at the open window and watching the passerbys. A very convenient walk to the Duomo and all the action. Marjan couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. The Gelato Shop below us was an added bonus! Close to the train station.
Response from Marjan - 05/19/2012
Thank you for your kind review. It was my pleasure to have you and your family at this apartment and to have a chance to see your smiling faces every day.
As I mentioned when you first inquired, the apartment could not accommodate 7 guests because there's no more space to add another bed. Later when you decided to book anyways, I was happy to offer the same rate for 5 guests, and during your stay I was glad to hear that all three girls could sleep on the sofabed.
I am still taking care of the plant that you gave me as a gift, and it is slowly growing. It reminds me of your smiles, and I hope I see you again.
great place in the center of florence
Great location (a bit noisy though), helpful and friendly service, clean and cozy apartment, all in all you won't regret!

Thank you very much Ivona for your kind review. I hope to see you and your family again. Marjan
Wonderful location and apartment
The apartment is very central, it is clean and beautifully decorated. Marjan is very helpful and we appreciated the fruit she left for us and the umbrellas she let us borrow.
It was a delight to walk out the front door and be only a few minutes away from any major sight.There is plenty to do in Florence and lots of lovely eating places especially home made ice-cream.
We look forward to visiting again one day and would happily stay in the apartment again.

An enchanting, cozy stay in the heart of Florence!!
This was the perfect quaint apartment on a pedestrian only street in the center of Florence. The location could not have been better-- close to the train station where we took a day trip to Siena, close to the Mercato Centrale where we bought fruit, cheese, bread, and sweets, close to the Duomo and a short distance from the Ponte Vecchio. It was a truly magical experience and we would recommend the apartment wholeheartedly to all travelers to Florence.Marjan, the rental agent, was professional, accomodating, kind, and extremely helpful-- many thanks to her!!

Perfect location, Well managed, everything you need
We have stayed in many hotels and apartments in Florence.
This apartment is the best one so far.
We stayed in January with a party of 6 people.
Nicely decorated, bonus with 2 bath rooms and there was plenty of room.
Supermarket next door, restaurants and market on door step.

Roodepoort, South Africa
At the outset I must say that the reviews that I had read of this apartment before making the reservation were absolutely spot on. This apartment is in a very old building and has been renovated. It is absolutely beautiful and offered a lot of comfort and space to our family of four. The apartment is fantastically located-only a few hundred meters from the Santa Maria Novella train station and in an area full of lovely shops. All the necessary conveniences such as a supermarket, laundry, pharmacy are right next to or around the apartment. The hostess Marjan was absolutely fabulous and extremely kind.She explained everything about the apartment and the area to us and even referred us to some lovely restaurants. We were actually very sad to leave Florence and especially this apartment and would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence.
Response from Marjan - 01/05/2012
Christo ! This is one of the best reviews that we have received ! It was very nice to have you, Margaretha and the twins here. You were very friendly from the first instant and it made it very easy to me to communicate. Thanks again for being here.
Excellent roomy flat in great location
Great, roomy flat in the middle of everything in Florence (near train station, market, Duomo, etc). My family (4 adults and 1 toddler) spent 3 nights here in late December. Quiet street and separate BR let our kid sleep while we enjoyed Tuscany's vino :) The manager provided a crib and was very helpful in making our stay as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Florence.
Response from Marjan - 01/05/2012
Thank you Mike for your kind review. I hope to have chance to host you and your family and specially your sweet little boy again. Thanks again
Thank you to Marjan for everything. The flat really got all we needed: great location, a great place to relax and to rest after walking in the streets of Florence. Kitchen is small but ok, and anyway there's no need for big kitchen in Italian town full of great restaurants! Beds were comfortable and we sleeped so well. It was really good service in all ways: we had information about restaurants, places to shop, and got also a possibility to make an online check-in to flights. And due to a comfortable flat and lovely Florence our teenaged boy did not even get bored during a holiday :)
Response from Marjan - 12/14/2011
Thank you so much for your feedback. I look forward to host you and your family again, and your chocolates were delicious. Thanks
We (myself, my mother, and my husband) stayed here for 5 days/4 nights in September and we had an absolutely fantastic time. The apartment is so charming and comfortable. Plus, it is in a terrific location as far as restaurants, sites, museums, and such. I would highly reccomend (and have already) staying here when visiting Florence. Plus, Marjan, the host, is so kind, sweet, and helpful. She really made our stay wonderful.

Thank you Molly for leaving this kind review. I hope to see you and your family again in Florence and thank you so much for the beautiful plant.

Half Moon Bay, Calif.
Location, location, location
The lovely apartment on Faenza has it all. Location, comfort and true Florentine ambiance. Start your day with a pastry and cappuccino from the best pastry shop ever, right around the corner. Then go to the market to get your dinner stuff. Drop everything off at the apartment and go exploring. Day trip? No problem. The train station is less than a five minute walk. Finish your day with a gelato from the gelateria right below the apartment, better than Vivoli's. Alas, I have to stop the accolades as I probably will never be able to get a reservation there again.
Saint Helena, CA
Great location and wonderful stay
Our family stayed here during our recent trip to Florence and had a great stay. Based on the location alone I would gladly stay here again. The apartment is a short and easy walk to the train station, and we like being so close to the market. Best of all, it's on a fantastic street with plenty of great restaurants and restricted traffic so we didn't have to worry about cars while our young boys played in the street.
Marjan was our host, and was fantastic! She's located directly across the street, so she was always available and easy to reach. She went above and beyond in making our stay enjoyable. She met us at the apartment when we arrived, and provided us with everything we needed. She even helped us after we had checked-out and were delayed several hours due to a train logistics. The bottled water and fresh fruit and vegetables in the room were also a great surprise upon our arrival after a long day traveling.
The apartment is comfortable, and worked well for our family. The only addition I could recommend would be internet service, but with the internet cafe located right across the street, even this wasn't much of an inconvenience.
We hope to return again, and would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence.
Loved the Location
Apt is in great location. 5 minute walk to train station if you are traveling to other places in Italy. Much better value than a hotel. Lots of room. Very clean. Small shower in one bathroom but that's to be expected in Italy. Marjan was very helpful in answering our many questions that ranged from sights in Florence to renting a car. We were very pleased with Marjan and the apt.
Convenience & Comfort all in One!
Conveniently located to the train & bus stations, laundromat, grocery store, major sights, gelato, and internet. Could not have asked for a better location! Marjan took superb care of us. If we return to Florence, we will stay here!
