“Great location and comfortable.”
This apartment is in a great location. You have a view of the Duomo outside of your balcony window in the main living area. We were there in a heat wave and the air conditioning was great. The apartment is near a grocery store and an easy walk to everything. It was off the touristy streets but not far away from things you want to do and see. The apartment is on the 4th or 5th floor of the building and there is no elevator but if you have no physical mobility or major health issues, this shouldn't be a problem. It has a nice functional kitchen. There were a few idiosyncratic things about operation such as balancing energy demands with building capacity (e.g. don't run air conditioners and washing machine at same time) and you need to know to turn the gas off and on when you use the stove. Recommend downloading Apartments Florence app. There is a bar around the corner called Saint Louis that has great live music and a good restaurant. Save your bags to return to the store and if you need to open the garbage containers, there is a foot pedal. The people at Apartments Florence were really nice and helpful. Went by to check on our appliances even without us asking when we couldn't figure out how to work them at first. The only down thing is that they could stand to improve the quality of some of the furniture and maybe put some pictures on the wall in the bedrooms. Other than that, it was great :)
The apartment was okay. Nothing special. But they overcharged me (despite very specific terms in the contract). I have tried to have them fix the problem, but they have not been responsive.
Response from the manager We thank you for your review on our Alfani (views) 3P 2BD apartment. The apartment is just at a few minutes walk from the main sites and offers a great view of the Duomo from the full length French windows opening from the lounge onto the balcony. We are sorry to read about your comment for the charge, as we explained in our emails correspondence, we did not overcharge you, the price was as offered and we are sorry that the exchange rate from our local currency resulted in adding USD 15.00 to your total rent. Please believe that we followed regular procedure and we would be happy if you would trust your next stay with us in Florence. Apartments Florence Team.
“Sunny apartment by the Duomo”
We did several apartment rentals during our month in Italy and this one was probably the most fairly represented by the pictures. Looking out at the Duomo with the swallows flying around each late afternoon and morning from the apartment was one of our favorite things to do (just pull the couch around to make it comfy). The living space is generous and the kitchen is pretty well outfitted. It had the best shower! The location is very convenient to all the attractions and it has a nice grocery store very close by. The one thing we weren't crazy about was that the "double" bed is 2 twins put together. We hated that big hump in the middle, but we understand why the owner would want this bedding option since he/she rents to several different combinations of guests. Also, as in all parts of Florence this time of year, be mindful of mosquitos!
Response from the manager Grazie for reviewing our Alfani Views apartment! The picturesque views from the large windows offer a great vantage point on Brunelleschi's dome, while enjoying the peace of facing away from the street. We look forward to having you back in Florence soon! Apartments Florence Team
“A lovely apartment in a quiet and safe area.”
We loved the apartment with its great view of the duomo. Beds were very comfortable, shower was spacious and kitchen had all you needed to make meals (not that we did as the local eateries had such fantastic food at very reasonable prices!)
Response from the manager Grazie for your great review on our Alfani Views apartment. The location is hard to beat by the intersection of Via degli Alfani and Via De Servi, a stone throw from the Duomo! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the apartment which is very well equipped. For your next stay please don't hesitate to contact our Concierge in advance to organize tours or give you restaurant recommendations. Apartments Florence Team
“Great location, very dirty”
This apartment felt like a dirty, used rental property. It has been modernized and re-done but everything about it was dirty and smelled weird and gross. The bathroom was disgusting, the kitchen was so-so, the beds were not very comfortable and the linen was questionable. The check-in process was smooth and the guy we met up with (Francesco) was very nice and accommodating. He even carried my bag up the stairs. There are a lot of stairs to get to the apartment, which we were fine with (had to work off that pasta) but if you have issues with stars this is not the place for you. The location was absolutely fantastic. The view of the Duomo was breathtaking and the bedrooms were quiet at night which was nice, but we could get over the griminess. Definitely keep the windows closed once it starts to get dark otherwise you will be living with many bugs. I am a very clean person and have a high standard, but my husband who does not was even grossed out by the place and we were very happy to leave. If you are ok with grime then you will probably be ok with this place, but otherwise I would splurge on a hotel!
Response from the manager Grazie mille for your honest review on our Alfani 3P 2bd apartment. As a full Management company your feedback is essential to us and our standard is that guests will find the apartment perfectly clean upon arrival, it is a very important point for us as it is for our guests. We are already investigating with our cleaning team . The location is so convenient, just steps away from Galleria dell'Accademia, the home of Michelangelo’s David, and the Duomo's front steps. Located on the third floor , the apartment offers an incredible view of the Duomo from the window. As many ancient building elevator may not be installed.

“Remarkable apartment and company”
Three of us booked this apartment for two months and we enjoyed it so much we ended up extending it for another month. The apartment location cannot be beat. It sits on a great street within walking distance to everywhere you want to be. There are numerous bars and restaurants nearby. The apartment itself is wonderful. Two bedrooms and ample living space. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and the bathroom has a good spacious shower. The wifi is strong and included! A very comfortable place to stay for any period of time. But the reason why you will love this apartment is the view of the Duomo. The glass french doors that open to the small balcony have an amazing view of the dome. The view cannot be beat. It sprawls out before you day and night and is just wonderful. You truly feel like a part of the city when you stay here. The apartment sits on the 3 floor(4th US floor) and has about 7 flights of stairs, but they are not too bad and every other flight is shallow. The effort is worth the amazing view! On top of it all the ApartmentsFlorence staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in every way. I will recommend them to everyone. I cannot recommend this apartment and company highly enough! Thanks for such a great stay!
Response from the manager Grazie mille for your positive review, we are so pleased you enjoyed so much your time in our apartment. You said it all , the location is fantastic, just steps away from Galleria dell'Accademia and the Duomo's front steps. When entering the apartment the special welcome of the view of the Duomo from the full length French windows opening from the lounge onto the balcony is definetely a plus. We are looking forward to welcome you back soon in Florence. Apartments Florence Team
“Great location and very clean”
Staying at this apartment was a wonderful experience. The location was excellent. Close to everything. The view from the balcony of the Duomo was breathtaking. As others said, there are a lot of stairs but that should not deter you. Once you get your luggage up, the climb is no problem. There is a great restaurant on the corner called the OK Bar. Not a fancy name but we needed gluten free food and they had quite an extensive gluten free menu. Everything there was delicious. The apartment has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped but we ate out most of the time anyway. Everything in the apartment was immaculate. We rented through apartments florence and everything went smoothly. We called them when we arrived and they met U.S. at the apartment in under 20 minutes. Very friendly. Highly recommend.

“An average but good location apartment”
An average apartment in Florence. Within walking distance - 15 minutes to the flora cathedral. 30 minutes walking to train station.

“Badly in need of a make over”
The best thing about this location is the view from the balcony where you can see the top of the Duomo. Also, the tiny kitchen has been renovated, but other than that this apartment is in need of a make over. The sofa needs a steam cleaning or a new one altogether. For instance, there were still crumbs on the sofa slightly tucked under a toss pillow showing me that if it had been vacuumed after the last tenants it was not done very well. Also the furniture looked like it was taken out of someone's garage and thrown together in the apartment. The veneer of the side table was falling off. The walls of the apartments had large dings in them and were dirty (especially in the bathroom). The best thing I can say about the bathroom was the shower pressure was good. Other than that, it had large patches of paint falling off of the ceiling and the walls were dingy with dirt. I have stayed with Apartments Florence a lot over the last 5 years. They have MUCH nicer apartments than this one. Although I highly recommend renting through Apartments Florence I cannot recommend this particular location.
Good location. Can easily access the sites from the location. Great air conditioning. Nice view from the back windows. Quiet. Clean. The only thing difficult was the climb up the stairs with luggage. Keys were extremely complicated to use.
