“Great location, clean, safe and great price.”
We loved our experience at affresco. I was a little leary of renting apartments as this was my first experience but Enrica was warm and genuine and we had a great time at her place. The apartment was very clean and modern and the perfect size for my wife and I. If and when we return to Florence we will definitely stay there again.
“Perfect location, sparkling clean, and lots of room”
We loved our stay in the affresco apartment. We stayed here for 5 nights in early November. The apartment was in a great location right around the corner from several modestly priced but good restaurants. There's a small grocery store and a bakery nearby so you can get fresh pastries for your breakfast. The staircase leading up to the loft is fine, but take care to hold the handrail if you need to use the loo in the middle of the night because it is quite dark and the staircase is a bit of an odd arrangement. The ceiling is the original 15th century ceiling that has been restored. The apartment was sparking clean and the bathroom was large (compared to other apartments we've rented in Europe.) The washer and dryer was one floor up and worked perfectly which allowed us to pack fewer clothes. Enrica always responded quickly through email and it was quite easy to secure the rental and obtain the key upon our arrival. My only complaint was that you could hear others coming in and out of the building at various times during the night. This is not the fault of the apartment but rather of the building. We heard almost no street noise except on Halloween night. We would definitely stay here again if we come to Florence.
“Very clean and charming apartment in perfect location.”
Everything was perfect except that there wasn't enough supplies for our stay. There was barely enough toilet paper for two days (and we were staying for four days) and only enough blankets for two people (and there were three of us). Other than these inconveniences, everything was super organized.
“The Fabulous Find in Florence”
We were thrilled with our 4 day stay at affresco in Florence during June 2012. It is a reasonably priced apartment that has a lofted bedroom, sleeper sofa on the main floor, kitchenette (frig, stove top, sink, dishes, pots/pans etc), modern bathroom, air conditioning, free washer and dryer, tv, free wi-fi. We are a family of 3 adults and it accommodated us well. It is in a charming old building in the center of the town on a safe street with many tourists near by. It is walking distance from all tourist sites in Florence and is less than a 10 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella Station for trains, buses and cabs to airport and other places. The area is surrounded by restaurants, fast food cafes and there are a couple of grocery stores within 5 minutes of the apartment. You can't do better than this for location, value, and conveniences. The owner Enrica, a Florence native, was very pleasant and helpful both before we arrived (via emails) and once we were there. She offered advice and suggestions whenever we needed them. She was easy to contact by email or phone if we needed help with something once in Florence. In short, she was great! This was a perfect place for a single, couple or family of 3. The only folks who might find this inappropriate for them might be those who have trouble climbing stairs since the bedroom that sleeps 2 people is up the staircase. Fabulous find in Florence. I hope you go there and enjoy your stay as much as we did.
We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights, this is a beautiful renovation. All the furnishing / bathroom is lovely. Communication with the owner (Enrica, charming lady) was excellent, and although she couldn't be there when we arrived, she organised a person to let us in and show us around as she (Enrica) was out of town. It's an easy walk from the train station and there are lots of local bakery / cafe / restaurants. Some nights it's a bit noisy, but I'm a light sleeper and used ear plugs and had no problems. Aircon was lovely, when we were there it was 34 deg C in the shade outside, cool inside, an excellent choice of a place to stay
“really in the heart of a bustling city”
We were very pleased with the apartment, our hostess, and the location of the apartment. However, the central location does mean that we had a lot of street noise at night. If you're a light sleeper this could be a problem - or you could bring earplugs! We loved the freedom of having our own flat close to everything we wanted to visit as Florence is definitely a walking-friendly city. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to be in the centre of things.
“The Best of Florence on Your Doorstep”
My daughter and I stayed at the affresco appartment in the heart of Florence in august and would thoroughly recommend this sensationally located facility. Situated within walking distance to Ponte Vecchico, the Duomo and attractions such as the San Lorenzo Markets and the Galleria accademia the apartment was ideal. The apartment itself was clean and well appointed with everything we needed including airconditioning which was a welcome relief to the summer heat. Enrica the owner was a delight to liaise with and made sure, even though she was away on holiday, that our arrival on a public holiday was not marred by closed supermarkets by stocking the fridge and cupboards with tea, coffee, milk, biscotti, and fruit. The apartment was in a secure building and in an area where, as two females travelling alone we felt very safe. The only drawback was the plethora of designer clothes and jewelery shops tempting us with fabulous items and alas no unlimited credit card!
“a home away from home in Florence”
we stayed for a wonderful week at affresco apartments which is a short walk from the station. from the moment we were greeted at the door by Enrica until she farewelled us on our last day, everything about affresco was exceptional. It's location is central to shops and restaurants and most tourist sights are within walking distance.The apartment is clean and comfortable with all amenities needed for a short or long stay, we even had access to a washing machine and dryer in the building. The only negative would be the tiny shower but everything else was great.We would definitely stay here again.
el apartamento tiene una excelente ubicación, la sra. Enrica muy amable y disponible a lo que necesites . No la tuvimos que llamar durante nuestra estadía porque el apartamento tiene todo lo necesario . Realmente disfrutamos de Florencia y del apartamento !! Muy recomendable
“Wonderful apartment owned by incredible people.”
Enrica's apartment in Florence was an absolute delight. Located a quick walk from the train station towards the center of town, it was extremely convenient and safe. It was quiet at night and the bed was comfortable so we awoke well rested. The air conditioning worked perfectly as did the wireless internet. The efficient kitchen let us prepare a few meals at home which was a welcome break from eating out. Enrica herself is kind and welcoming. She even allowed us to store our bags for free as we toured the city on the day we checked out. I would love to stay in her clean and comfortable apartment next time we visit Florence.
