Palazzo Strozzi apartment description

The calendar is up-to-date. There is a 4 night minimum booking period except for Christmas, New Years, Easter when 7 night minimum applies.
Strozzi Florence apartment is located in the most upscale area of the historic center of Florence. Step out the door of the apartment building and find “miracle mile” Via Tornabuoni just half-a-block away, lined with beautiful Renaissance buildings, now filled with wonderful shops, luxury hotels and designer boutiques. Just two blocks to lovely Piazza della Repubblica, a famous backdrop for so many period films including 'Room With a View', 10-minute walk to the charming Ponte Vecchio and famous Uffizi art museum.
Take a walk through the Strozzi apartment by viewing the video. See link above.
The apartment gets its name from Palazzo Strozzi, one block away, which is widely regarded as the finest example of Renaissance architecture in Florence. The comfortable and conveniently located Florence Strozzi apartment offers an excellent historic location, modern conveniences, hard-to-find center of town quiet for sleeping, and a bevy of wonderful museums, cafés, tempting gourmet food purveyors, restaurants, and shopping at the building's doorstep.
This Florence apartment complements our popular Prisco (VRBO 52284) and Michaela (VRBO 58566) Florence vacation apartments which are located in the same building. It is located on the third floor of a Renaissance building with elevator, off a gracious private hallway. Since it on the back of the building it faces the back of the apartment behind. It's a welcome retreat from the bustling streets of central Florence, providing a glimpse into the daily lives of Florentines who live and work in the historic center.
The apartment faces the internal courtyard of the building and has a sunny terrace off the living. The small terrace doesn’t provide any views other then to the backs of the neighboring apartments, service terraces and laundry lines. The terrace is furnished with a table and 2 chairs providing a sunny, peaceful retreat in the midst of Florence.
The living room sofa bed converts to two twin beds. The French doors opening onto the terrace get good light. There is an efficiency kitchen for preparing simple meals. When the doors to the kitchenette are closed it looks like an antique armoire in the corner of the living room. The kitchenette is adequate for light meal preparation due to limited countertop space.
The bedroom is comfortable with two twin beds which can be made up as a king upon request, and a set of double windows overlooking the internal courtyard. The dressing room area that leads from the bedroom to the bathroom has large, floor-to-ceiling storage closets and a full-length mirror.
The white-tiled bathroom has a good-sized shower, washing machine and French doors that open to a second small internal terrace which is perfect for hanging laundry.
Within the same building are our Prisco VRBO #52284 and Michaela VRBO #58566 vacation rental apartments.

A WONDERFUL APARTMENTGuest comment entered by manager
A WONDERFUL APARTMENT
Our stay at the Strozzi was just great. Our hosts met us at the apartment just as arranged and helped us with directions and everything we asked of them. The Strozzi is so beautifully located. We had favourite restaurants, cafes and trattorias within a couple of minutes walk! The apartment is huge. We couldn't believe our luck after small places we had stayed at elsewhere in Europe. We would highly recoomend the apartment and would not hesitate to use Italy Perfect again. Professionalsm is everything when booking a holiday

Great apartmentGuest comment entered by manager
Strozzi was the perfect place to stay; it is located near to major sites and could not be more convenient to restaurants, pastry shops and gelato! We did not have a car and it was totally unnecessary. Strozzi was well equipped but we did not cook much since we ate our large meal at lunch while we were out and had mostly items from the delis and markets at night with wine of course. The building is lovely and Mikki and Franco were most gracious. I would stay there again and have recommended it to a friend already.

Best Location in the World
My wife and I were in Florence for 1 week. With only one week, you need to see as many things in as short a time as possible, so a central location is imperative! Well, the Strozzi apt was perfect for location. Also, the bed was great, the apt. comfortable and the owners very nice. Couldn't have been improved upon.

The hosts are friendly, delightful, and efficient
I have rented Eurpean holiday apartments on numerous occasions. Not only is this apartment well-equipped, charming, and perfectly located, but the hosts are friendly, delightful, and efficient. And full-marks to Italy Perfect for providing a fine list of suggested restaurants. (Stayed February 2013)

Highly recommended.Guest comment entered by manager
Wonderful visit to Florence in April, made all the more enjoyable by the owners who were extremely helpful and kind. The location was perfect; within walking distance to all the museums and art galleries, shopping and restaurants,with a bakery next door and a deli just down the street. Highly recommended.

Comfortable StrozziGuest comment entered by manager
We have rented many apartments in Florence. The Strozzi apartment is outstanding for 3 features 1) location 2) price and 3) management. The apartment is very comfortable and was exactly what we expected. We will stay there again.

This is a terrific placeGuest comment entered by manager
This is a terrific place
this is a terrific place with virtually no caveats--location is right in the middle of the best shopping/accessible to every key church and museum/two blocks away from the Duomo and republic square/within one mile of at least 35 wonderful restaurants and the river Arno as well as the other side--a ten minute walk from the pont vecchio-- the apt is clean and comfy--the washer works without a problem and the deck is easy for clothes drying in the sun/the stove top works fine but is small and real cooking is difficult--better do easy stuff like eggs,toast and coffee- the elevator works as does the AC--there are two good super markets nt far away--they sell oatmeal which was key for me -seems americans can't find this in italy but you can now--at con ads in the cereal section on the lowest shelf-you will have to run the AC if you don't like noise to sleep with-we did and it works the two owners are gems and are helpful beyond reasonable--enormously nice people i would stay there again i would use Italy Perfect again

Excellent place for us to stayGuest comment entered by manager
Excellent place for us to stay
Our apartment was an excellent place for us to stay during our visit to Florence. The location was perfect for access to the historic center of town as well as modern shopping opportunities. The building was exactly the vintage place we expected. The rooms were made up exactly as we had requested. Our greeters, also the apartment owners, welcomed us warmly and cordially; they took great effort to acquaint us with our surroundings from show us how to operate the appliances in the apartment to telling us about neighborhood including nearby restaurants. This was our first time renting an apartment instead of hotel room, and we were a bit apprehensive about how it would all work out. But after the warm greeting we had from our hosts, the anxieties melted away. We really couldn't have asked for better. There is a bakery almost next door to the apartment building, and when they bake overnight the wonderful odors drift up and into the apartment. This encourages you to get up early and go first thing to get some delicious pastries! Also conveniently located is a good gelateria just a few steps past the bakery. There are a couple of good restaurants we found within easy walking distance: Tratoria dei 13 Gobbi, Via del Porcellana 9/r, and La Bussola Ristorante e Pizzaria, Via Porta Rossa, 58/r. We ate the best meals of the trip at these two restaurants. We would definitely recommend this to others and hope to return ourselves some day.

Loved our visit to Florence!
Our apartment in Florence was much more than we expected! Our greeters were genuinely interested in our comfort and the rooms were the perfect size for our family of four! Great location in the heart of the city...felt like a short walk to everything. Really enjoyed coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening on the terrace. We used several of our greeter's recommendations for restaurants and were glad we did. Will definitely recommend Italy Perfect for any friends traveling to Italy!

Very thoughtfully and comfortably equipped
This is a beautiful apartment, very thoughtfully and comfortably equipped and very lovely. It feels like an elegant family home, not a tourist rental apartment. The owners are delightful and extremely helpful, showing us how to operate all of the appliances and pointed out everything we needed. It was perfect for two people--this is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. We loved it. The location is great, easy to walk to all the Florence sights and close to restaurants and shops. It is important to realize that the kitchen is a small kitchenette contained in an armoire, so any cooking needs to be simple. We had breakfast in the apartment, and brought back carryout a couple of times for dinner. The only other downside is some noise coming up through the interior courtyard at night.
