“Awful, bait and switch”
We were promsied an air-conditoned 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in Florence. What we got instead was a unbearably hot, un-airconditoned four-flight walkup mess. When we asked about the promised but nonexistent air-conditioning we were told there was "a fan." On the humid nights in Flornece a fan didn't even come close to doing the job. One shower was missing a door, that was badly repiared with shower curtin rings, but there was no shower curtain! So, that shower was completely unusable unless we wanted to flood the apartments below. The other shower had sporadic cold and scalding hot water. When we asked about the shower situation, we were told, "Hey, it's an old building," a blowoff line if I've ever heard one. The second bedroom beds were thin mattresses (no box springs) on small metal cot frames like you'd see in a 3rd rate summer camp, plus the sheets had holes. It was so hot in this Dantean ring of hell,we ended up moving and paying for a different apartment that had air conditioning and working bathrooms. They offered us a minimal refund for the week's stay. So awful, I would not recomend this company to a dog.
Response from the manager Dear client, Thank you for your review - we appreciate the time you took to give us feedback on the apartment, and I can assure you we have taken it into consideration and improved the issues you mentioned. Vecchietti 2bd is a very spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment situated in the most amazing and prestigious zone of Florence. There is a functional elevator, which takes you directly to the 4th floor, so no need to climb the stairs! It has a more classical style, but it is warm and comfortable. We have fixed the shower curtain of course, so that is no longer an issue, and the mattress in the second bedroom has been changed to a more comfortable one. In the recent past, we have had medium-long term stays in the apartment with very happy clients. We apologize for the inconveniences in any case, and would like to offer you a discount on a future rental with us depending on price and availability. Hope to see you in Florence soon! Regards, The Apartments Florence Team
“Not luxious as depicted”
The pictures and descriptions of this"luxury " apartment are quite misleading...the balcony is too narrow to sit in and is used for a washing machine,wash tub and mops,etc..the air conditioning is improperly connected spilling water over the floor; the shower is about the sizeof a telephone booth; the living room/dining had a dingy sofa and one chair and plastic chairs for the dining table; the toilet seat was unusable and not repaired properly; the very low low wattage light bulbs limited reading comfortably; the elevator was broken for 36 hours; proper cutlery was lacking with only one long knife for use.The apartment is dark and worn unlike the ad pictures. The location is near the Duomo and major sights,however on weekends it was noisy until 2:00 a.m. We had to keep the windows open at night all of had numerous mosquito bites!!! I think you get the picture

“Very nice apartment with some problems”
The apartment was large and comfortable and was well outfitted for the most part. They provided a complimentary bottle of wine which was very nice. Although we were a party of four, there were only two wine glasses. We did have some problems. Both bedrooms had free standing air conditioners which flooded our rooms on the first night. They did not seem to have proper drainage and that was not rectified during our stay. We also had a few burned out light bulbs which were not replaced during our stay. We chose the apartment partly because it had a small terrace. As it turned out, the terrace was really only a work space for laundry and some supplies. It was too small for four people to sit comfortably there. The apartment was very well situated. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The down side was that the area was very noisy at night. I would recommend this apartment particularly because of the location, but I encourage interested parties to check carefully to ensure they are getting what they want.

Located in a stylish neighborhood , flocked with elegant buildings, chic cafes and luxury shopping is also home to some of the city’s most important landmarks, including Palazzo Strozzi, and Piazza della Repubblica, this apartment is really perfect to visit Florence. Being in the heart of everything comes with the rumors of the city life as you correctly mentionned. Thanks to your feedback we have added wine glasses and checked all light fixtures and we reported to the owner your comment about the conditioner.Please follow us on our Facebook page to stay informed about Florence and our properties, hoping to have you back with us soon.
