- Very Good
This apartment is right in the heart of EVERYTHING! Including the train and bus areas. We travelled through Italy using the train system. So easy! The Duomo is a step away and a great view from the windows. Across town to the Arno River was just a short and beautiful walk. My husband and I stayed in the apartment for nearly a month. It become home to us. We hated leaving. Way better than a hotel stay. The apartment has so much rich history. It really shows pride of ownership. We took to it right away. And even referred to it as home. Every modern convenience is there. Very clean. Air conditioning worked beautifully. The owners from the get go were so friendly and accommodating. Any questions we had they would research if we couldn’t find something. The neighborhood is great for any type of shopping you want or need to do. And the neighbors are all so friendly. We got to know them better than our neighbors at home. They really looked out for us! Now we know the next time we are in Italy where we want to stay. We could’ve very comfortably have extended our trip! Thank you again for making everything just perfect! P&J losorelli
Response from the owner Thanks a lot for a so extensive, detailed and gratifying Review and comments: I am happy when my old house is also felt for my guests. It will be our pleasure to have the possibility to host you again in Florence, whenever you'll wish to come back. Eleonora.
“Best Location Ever!”
Going to Florence? This is the most wonderful apartment, best location and most gracious owner you will ever find. We were able to walk everywhere because of its perfect location near the Duomo. The apartment was spacious and comfortable for 4 adults. Eleonora oriented us to both the apartment and surrounding areas, which was extremely helpful. We had a wonderful 2 week stay and would definitely return!
Response from the owner Many Thanks for your Review and all your comments. It has been a pleasure to have you as my guests in Florence for 2 weeks, and I hope to have the opportunity to host you again. Eleonora.
“Wonderful apartment in a superb location and a great and knowledgeable owner.”
The apartment was everything we had hoped it would be. Spacious, clean and centrally located within walking distance to all of the museums and the Duomo. Eleanora Massa, the owner was a pleasure to deal with. We were scheduled to arrive early and she was more than willing to accommodate an early check-in allowing us to store our luggage and hit the historic area right away. She provided us with recommendations on where to eat, all of which were excellent. The apartment with the full kitchen allowed us to purchase food at the Mercato market and prepare it at home on several of our nights. The washer and dryer in the apartment meant less clothing was needed to be packed. Overall, a great apartment, in a wonderful location and owned by a friendly, knowledgeable owner. We hope to return soon and plan on booking Eleanora's place again.
Response from the owner Many thanks for a so positive review and your appreciation overall. I hope too to host you again in Florence in the future. Eleonora.
