                Donatella was very professional in booking our stay through email. Her property manager, Mariano, was so kind and offered to let us contact him with anything we needed. They left us a nice bottle of wine that we never had a chance to drink because we were always trying to eat in the local restaurants to experience food of Florence. The apartment is on the bottom floor and conveniently located. It was a little small for the four of us and the large amount of luggage we had with us. Some of the other reviews mentioned the stairs in the bathroom and the awful couch. I have to agree. Just watch out for the stairs. The couch is a sofa bed and we just pulled it out and rested that way. We would have preferred a couch that didn't require the little space we did have. Our kids liked having the little basement area as their room. The loft worked well and had a comfortable bed. I too want to mention that the neighborhood is noisy, but I realized through our travel around Italy that it is common to be noisy in the city areas. I would suggest a noise machine to help block out as much as possible. My husband left a little piece of electronic equipment when we left and Mariano was kind enough to offer to help to get it to us. We are still working that out, but it is so appreciated. Thank you Donatella and Mariano.

                It was a very cute apartment! The main floor (living room/kitchen/dining area) was extremely cosy. The location was fantastic!! It's a great cosy apartment for a family - the only issue is that we are a family of 4, my parents, my sister and me - my sister and I are 24 and 20, respectively. We felt that the two beds in the basement are better suited for younger children. The entire vibe of the apartment with the openness is perhaps more suitable for a family with younger kids. One bathroom for the 4 of us was a bit difficult. But these issues are more specific to our family needs. Also, there was a lack of mirrors in the house, haha. Otherwise, I would recommend this apartment if you are looking for something cute, cosy and a good location. It was comfortable and spacious! Definitely worth it!!

                This is a lovely apartment that is close to the center of Florence. Plenty of space for us (2 adults and 11 year old twins). The kids loved their downstairs room. The apartment is well appointed. Donatella was very helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend this place.

                I have to start with saying how great Donatella is to work with via email in securing the reservation. She is responsive and always checking-in to see if you're happy and need anything else. Also, the apartment manager, Mariano, has got to be one of my most favorite people. Very kind, very responsive to the tenant's needs. And very passionate about Firenze. The apartment is in the center of it all. And that brings the noise. So be prepared. The noise does last until about 4am since the apartment is one street away from the bar scene in Santa Croce. The drunkards walking home from the bars, while entertaining, can get old after awhile. You may not be able to avoid that noise if you want to stay in the center of Florence. The apartment is close to everything and a 30 second walk to Via De Neri. It's also on the first floor so no stairs to deal with, you lose a view but you gain the comfort of no stairs. Being on the first floor also increases the noise level and decreases the light. I think the one downfall of the apartment is it can feel like you're in a dungeon. Now, if you stay for a few days, it would be fine. We stayed for 3 weeks, and that dungeon, damp, dark feeling started to wear on us a bit. Just take that into consideration. Also, the couch is terrible. It really needs to be replaced -- it's top 3 worst couches that I have ever sat on. Bathroom has stairs, so be careful but adequately works. The loft upstairs has a comfortable bed and while the ceiling is low, never felt claustrophobic. The internet and television worked great. The kitchen was awesome, we cooked a few meals very easily. It is a pretty nice apartment. But if you're staying for an extended period, you may want to consider what I mentioned in the review. Thanks Donatella and Mariano for your wonderful hospitality!

                Donatella, you are wonderful! We so enjoyed our stay at your place. You certainly went out of your way for our family by finding parking for our car as well as securing tickets to the museum. Your place was beautifully decorated and very clean. We almost didn't want to leave it was so nice. My family after walking so much at other places we visited in Italy were relieved that your place was located in the center of all the museums, churches and other great attractions. We stayed in six different places in Italy and yours was by far one of our favorites. God willing we will come back to Italy and will stay at your place again, we will most definintely refer you to all our friends. Thank you again Toni and family USA

                All the other reviewers have said is true--this is an excellent property near just about everything. My wife has bad knees, so being close to the sites is a must and this was. It was wonderful to enjoy Florence staying in this property. The owner was very easy to deal with, the place immaculately clean, and equipped with what you needed to make an enjoyable stay. While only myself, my wife and teenage daughter stayed here, the property could have easily held 6 people comfortably. At the end of a long day of sight-seeing, it was a welcome oasis. Definitely a good value and selection.

                During our Italia vacation we rented 4 properties. This was the best. We could have stayed right here the whole time. This property is located very near the most popular tourist sites. I am talking about 5-10 minutes walk and you are there. The Uffizzi, the Dumo add 5 minutes and you are at the Accademia. The property was clean. The property manager meet us, Mariano was terriffic. He went out of his was to help us with the washing machine, on a Sunday evening. We loved our stay in Florence and will stay here again. Thank you Donatella and Mariano.

                We stayed here for 5 nights in October and would definitely recommend this place. The location is great, minutes from museums, the river and many great restaurants. Although it's down a little side street we were surprised at how noisy it was during the night with traffic, church bells etc but I think that's just Florence generally. Donatella was in touch regularly by email and check in was easy as a lovely met us at the apartment. She spoke no English, we spoke no Italian but we managed just fine! The furnishings were comfy, although I'd be wary of small children using the stairs to the basement as they're steep and narrow. Our boys (teenagers) loved their 'den' though! We absolutely loved Florence and having this cute little apartment to pop back to to rest our weary feet made our stay even better!

                Our family of 3 stayed here for 2 nights and found it very comfortable and convenient. Very close to Piazza della Signoria which makes sightseeing very convenient. Both upstairs bedroom and the living sofa bed were very comfortable; air-conditioner worked well; very quiet neighborhood. Even it's on the ground level, we didn't hear much outside noise. Previous review was right about the shower in the bathroom was very small. Heavy people will have trouble turning inside the shower stall. It was not a problem for my family but still felt a bit cramp. But overall staying was very satisfying.
