“Spacious and centrally located”
Lovely bedrooms, beautiful light, and an ideal location close to Piazza Santa Croce. The apartment's best features are the bedrooms, with large, comfortable beds and plenty of closet space. The kitchen is large with an eat-in table and nice appliances, but is not well-equipped for real cooking -- bare minimum of pots, pans, etc. It would have been nicer if there had been basic staples -- coffee, sugar, salt,olive oil, vinegar etc.-- but we had to buy everything, and there are few markets in the area. That said, it is still a nice apartment and ideal location. Gabriel, from the apartment agency, was very helpful: he dragged our heavy suitcases up four flights of stairs and could not have been more charming. Thank you, Gabriel.
Response from the manager “Grazie mille for your lovely review on our Ghibellina apartment. This two bedroom apartment is well located, just few steps from the beautiful Santa Croce and all the major attractions. Thank you for your nice word on our staff! We look forward to having you in Florence again soon and please don't hesitate to contact our Concierge page for services including Transfers, Valet Parking, and Extra Cleaning. Apartments Florence Team"
This two bedroom apartment has a great location, within easy walking distance to everything including a well-stocked grocery store, pharmacy, varied small, good restaurants and all of the famous Florence sights. No lift and the apartment is 78 steps up, but it is great exercise! The apartment is air conditioned and has good beds, a new bathroom and kitchen (with dishwasher and washing machine). Furniture is sparse and lighting is not adequate for reading. Bring an extra one or two kitchen towels as they provide only one. Also they supply only one bath towel per person and there is no drier so after you wash your towels and hang them to dry they are still damp the next day. Kitchen is not well equipped. Bring a shape knife, a cork screw and buy some paper towels and plastic glasses/cups.

“Perfectly Italian, amazing location, great for long weekend in Florence”
I recently stayed here with 3 friends on a min break to Florence. I cannot praise the location enough, it is ideal and so central but without being too busy or loud. You are no more than a 5 min walk from all main attractions but it's on a back street which makes you feel like a local where you can hide from bus loads of tourists. (we all like to think we aren't tourists ourselves) Please note the 5 flights of stairs to reach the apartment, but it's worth the climb. Really well kept, clean, spacious and perfect for x 4 people. Comfy beds, air con and even a bottle of red wine to welcome us. (Nice touch) - cute view being so high up and easy to organise getting keys etc... Would stay again.
“Great apartment just a few minutes walk from local attractions”
The correspondence running up to the holiday from the apartments Florence team was spot on, on arrival after phoning from the airport they were a little late, however they did agree to extend the check out time and leave luggage in the apartment for a few hours which more then made up for it, as no one wants to carry heavy luggage around on the last day. I think the correspondence on left luggage could have come before the trip as not many people check emails daily whilst on holiday, I could be wrong? The apartment was clean and had all the necessary, the tv did not have good reception however we were out most of the time so did not make much difference. Location was fantastic with restaurants and shops not far, with major attractions within a pleasant 10mins walk or 20mins when you keep on stopping to look at the wonderful architecture. There were celebrations on during our stay and albeit on the 3rd floor you could hear a lot from the street, but because of all the walking and full days it very rarely disturbed our sleep. If you are a light sleeper recommend to shut the shutters on the window. All in all a wonderful stay made easy by the staff and a excellent city, one of the best in Italy. Note this apartment does not have lift but I would imagine these buildings were built before lifts were invented, I needed the exercise.
Response from the manager Grazie mille for taking the time to write about your positive experience at our Ghibellina 3p apartment. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found our booking process easy. We appreciate your feedback regarding the check in & check out times and try to do our best to communicate these along with the service of leaving luggage in our nearby office. We hope to have you all stay with us again in the future, so make sure to stay up to date with us through Facebook! Grazie & Best regards Christine - Apartments Florence
We arrived late due to problems with our travel arrangements and rearranging check in time was no problem. Our check in host was efficient, informative and pleasant to deal with. The apartment itself suited our needs perfectly. It was very central which meant we could walk to all the sights, and one day we went to the market, bought lovely fresh ingredients and good Tuscan wine, came home and cooked ourselves a delicious lunch. The only down side to the apartment being on the fourth floor was that we had to carry our bags up and down, but the good side was we got lots of exercise, and we had no one above us. It was perfect for a family of four - spacious enough for all of us yet well heated and cosy despite the winter weather.
Response from the manager Ciao Clare! Thank you for writing about your positive experience at our Ghibellina 3p apartment! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the seamless check in procedure and meeting our check in associate! We are also glad that the apartment worked well for you even with the stairs (it's a good way to burn off all the delicious pasta!). Thanks for the tip on Vinaio as well, it is such a fun place and truly Florentine! We hope to have you all stay with us again in the future, until then keep in touch with us through Facebook. Best regards, Christine - Apartments Florence
“Great apartment, great location!”
We are a family of 2 adults and 2 young children. We had our nanny with us on this trip and we all slept comfortably and had lots of room to relax and play. Surprisingly spacious with all the things you would need in the kitchen and bathroom. Heating was adequate and wifi worked well. We stayed in this neighbourhood specifically because it was close to our favourite restaurant all'antico Vinaio on Via Dei Neri, but it also gave us easy access to everything else we needed eg: supermarket, galleries, shopping. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone. There are only stairs to access the apartment so if you can manage that it would be fine.
“Not the best in Giabellina”
When told we were not being left any condiments or basic food until we managed to get to a supermarket, we were shocked. All apartments we have previously rented, (including in Giabellina), have had basics supplied, and enough to get you going until you do your first shopping. Clean and basic, not really worth the value, we should have rented the other end of Giabellina ( low numbers) where the rooms were quieter, cheaper, and more modern amenities ( we rented ther a few years ago but my enquiry came back to late).
Response from the manager We sadly see that your staying at our apartment was not as good as you were expecting and we feel sorry for this. This apartment is managed directly by the staff of Apartmentsflorence.it and we guarantee the highest quality of service and assistance during your stay in Florence. In every apartment in our website there is a full description of the amenities and the facilities that the client will find as we work hard to be as transparent with our clients as possible. We also provide in every apartment for each guest the basic amenities that you would find in a hotel; a set of towels, bed linen , a welcome courtesy kit with shampoo, bath foam and soap. As well as a bottle of chianti wine as a welcome gift and two tablets for the dishwasher and two tablets for the washing machine. Often there are a number of grocery items left in the apartments from previous guests but this can’t be guaranteed. We will of course be happy to provide basic provisions for a guests arrival upon request and for a small fee. We hope to be able to host you again in the future and we will be happy to discuss how we can make your stay more comfortable. Thank you , Apartments Florence
The location was great but extremely noisy on the Friday and Saturday night in early hrs of the morning night club people very noisy and had two sleepless nights otherwise great apartment. Needs a light over the stairwells very dangerous without a light used our phone light to go up and down the stairs
Response from the manager We are very pleased to see your nice review about our apartment at via Ghibellina. This renovated third floor accommodation is located in the heart of Florence where you can find everything restaurants,supermarkets and unfortunately for someone, night clubs but all these are part of the city center. The apartments is opposite the house of Michelangelo and only short distances from Piazza Santa Croce and Sant’Ambrogio’s daily farmers market. We sincerely hope that the next time you are in Florence you will allow us to help make your stay as comfortable as possible using our concierge service to help you with any tours, tickets and information that you may need. Please visit our Facebook page for updates on events taking place in Tuscany and new apartments! Grazie, Apartments Florence
“Great location but apartment a little tired”
The location is great and so easy to get around. The open-top bus stops on the next corner and Santa Croce is a block away. Little store where you ca buy alcoholic drinks across the road and the supermarket 2 minute walk. The apartment is up 60 stairs so carrying luggage is tough and it was also very hot whilst we were in Florence so became something we didn't particularly look forward to at the end of the day!! And we are not lazy by any means. Our greeter was fantastic (Ceasar?) and very kindly carried one bag up on his head! Impressive. The apartment is very spacious and although the lounge area layout is a little odd, it is light enough and you have a little view at the end of the room. The sofa was very tired with only a sheet covering the exposed foam - get the owners to tidy this up as it was really rather unpleasant. This is the only sofa by the way. Shower is great and the bathroom overall works well. Heated towel rail is on a timer but we were able to get towels dry. We weren't given one set of towels so did wash them however it was a challenge to get them dry without a dryer. There is a drying rack and the kitchen seemed a good area to leave it. The kitchen is great and we cooked in twice and good sized fridge/freezer. Only one air-conditioning remote was working (there are 3) so that was just a little issue but still annoying. The other issue we had was that the power kept going off and on two occasions we also had no hot water. We were told the may happen on checkin if too many appliances were on, and to just flick the master switch back in, which we did and it worked again. It was annoying when we by had the washing machine on. Overall the apartment is good and would only need a kick of paint to tart it up again.
Response from the manager We at Apartments Florence are grateful you chose us to help accommodate your stay in Florence and we glad to receive a nice review about our apartment in via Ghibellina 69. As you have mention this apartment is in the heart of Florence near Santa Croce, 600 years ago you could be Michelangelo’s neighbor since his home is right in front of yours, you can buy fresh fruits vegetables and also Italian products such as prosciutto, truffle, porcini mushrooms and parmigiano. Our apologies about the condition of the sofa, it was a temporary solution because the cover was in the laundry and at that time we didn’t had an extra one, but now there will be no more a problem since we have bought a second in any case we needed. About the issue with the electric power is something that doesn’t depend from us as the electrical company provides only a number of KW for an apartment as in most of the historical palazzos in Italy. We do our best to explain these specific situations at check in so that you can be as comfortable as possible during our stay. The check in/check out procedure, bed linens and towels, cleaning service, assistance and maintenance are all provided directly by the Apartmentsflorence.it staff so please the next time you book one of our apartments contact us for any problem like the air-condition remote that wasn’t working so that we can come and fix it at time. Thank you Apartments Florence
