This is an excellent Florence Vacation Apartment if an historic center location and affordability are top priorities. The Michaela Florence apartment is a perfect retreat from Florence's busy downtown streets.
The apartment is located off of the high-fashion Via Tornabuoni, with numerous major designer boutiques just outside the front door of the apartment building. Stroll along downtown Florence pedestrian thoroughfares, enjoy outdoor cafes, easy museum access due to the central location, plenty of shopping, restaurants, and the best produce market, the Mercato Centrale, all within walking distance.
Piazza Repubblica only a few blocks away, the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio Bridge an easy 5 to 10 minute walk. Just down the street is the famous Palazzo Strozzi. Going in the opposite direction, the Santa Maria Novella train station is an 8 minute walk.
If you are looking for a chic neighborhood and a convenient stopping point at the end of a busy day of sightseeing, the Michaela apartment offers the perfect solution.
It is located on the 3rd floor (this is called the 2nd floor in Italy) of a four-story apartment building which has an elevator. Once you enter the building there are six steps up to the elevator.
Enter off a private hallway into the pleasant living room with queen size sofa bed, chair, two windows, flat screen TV.
A separate dining room with kitchenette is good for light meal preparation. The dining room window overlooks the internal courtyard and service terraces of other apartments. Off the dining room is a full bathroom with enclosed shower, sink, toilet and bidet. There is a large storage closet between the dining room and bathroom.
The efficiency kitchen has a 2-burner electric stove top, microwave, toaster, under-the-counter refrigerator, and Italian-style coffeepot. Drip coffeemaker available upon request. The round dining table seats up to four people. The kitchenette is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans.
The bedroom is to the other side of the living room. It has two single beds that can be prepared together or apart and an armoire for your clothing. An en suite bathroom has shower, sink, toilet and bidet.

Perfect location - Perfect hosts
As a single traveler, I had the wonderful stay at in the Micheala apartment. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable with a modern bath and well-equipped kitchen. Miki and Franco were charming hosts, greeting me and ensuring that everything was perfect for my 8 day stay! The location was outstanding. It's minutes to the train station in one direction and to the main tourist areas in the other. I really enjoyed numerous shops and restaurants in the immediate neighborhood. I have already recommended Italy Perfect to friends and shall look to Italy Perfect in the future.

Best Location, Affordable, Highly Recommended
The accomodations exceeded our expectations, centrally located for touring Florence, easy access from the train station, in an upscale shopping area. Apartments was very quiet with use of a washing machine, internet, secure apartment with very spacious and modern bathroom. Sleeper sofa was easy to use and comfortable for 2. No real view but you can't beat the price on this one! We would return and have already recommended to close friends. The greeters were very kind, thorough and helpful. Lots of great little restaurants in the area. Gucci and all of the top-end stores are on the same street, so very nice location. Try out Casalinga (they don't speak much English, but worth it!) across the Arno river in the Oltrano area or Marione - have the steak and potatoes with rosemary, yummy! Recommend the Uffizi, the David at the Accademie, tombs of Galileo and Michaelangelo at Santo Spirito, the Museo at the Duomo and definitely "Florence for Foodies - add on the tour of David" - it was just the best way to learn about the food of Florence - you'll also learn about the very best gelato in the world, right in Florence...I highly recommend Italy Perfect! We also took 2 tours from walkaboutflorence.com into the Tuscan countryside (visited an organic farm) and the Cinque Terre walk, both nice if you are spending 5-6 days in Florence.

Very good value for the price.
We were very comfortable in this apartment for our four nights in Florence. We were greeted by our very friendly hosts who took time to explain the apartment and surrounding area to us. The apartment was very well equipped and the location was excellent! There was excellent shopping nearby and many restaurants steps away. The Arno River and all the major sites were within easy walking distance! We felt the apartment was very good value for the price. Italy Perfect was very good to book with ... very complete instructiions and information was provided before we left home ... our experience with Italy Perfect was very positive!

We loved this little apartment!!!
What a wonderful place to stay in Florence!! The friendly greeters, Miki and Franco, were so welcoming and helped us get a feel for the city and the apartment. The apartment itself is surprisingly spacious for a studio apartment, and it had everything we needed, from pots and pans to internet access to a laundry closet down the hall. The furniture is really space-efficient, and all of the cabinets and the whole kitchen unit have sliding doors. It gave us some great ideas for furnishing our new apartment back home. There's a great modern bathroom and beautiful paintings as well. The location is absolutely amazing--it's in a beautiful area near some great cafes and restaurants (not to mention the shopping!) We loved walking to the market everyday to pick out food to make for dinner--such a great way to really experience Italian food.

The Michaela was just right for us and what we wanted to do in our trip to Florence. The location cannot be beat. Via della Spada is an amazing street full of upscale shops and beautiful old cobblestone streets. The place itself was small but great for two people not spending a lot of time in the room itself. The sofa bed is comfortable, not a bed, but still was ok. It is an amazing deal if you compare it to similar hotels and we were able to experience Florence more like locals rather than tourists.

We had a great stay in Florence for the last leg of our Italian vacation. The Michaela apartment offered a home away from home. Franco and Miki were so welcoming and helpful. There are lots of great places to eat nearby and so much to do!
