Recent Florence reviews

  • Nice apartment; well situated.

    "We found this apartment after our booked-for-three-months accommodation canceled on us at the last minute! We found it is as-advertised, spacious and clean. The location is good--within easy walking distance of every major sight in Florence as well as the train station. The neighborhood is quieter than you would find on the other side of the river. We were satisfied with the apartment, especially in respect to the cost. Kevan was easy to work with and very accommodating. To be fair to others, I must back other reviews with regard to the street noise in the master bedroom. If you are not a city dweller or a very heavy sleeper, you will find that it is impossible to sleep without earplugs. Even on the weeknights, you can expect to have a lot of noise until 1-2 am, and the first night we arrived (Saturday) it was even later. The good news is that the second bedroom is much quieter--I can't use earplugs, but I was able to sleep by moving to the other bedroom (there were only two of us, so this was practical). This may simply be an artifact of the historic nature of the building and of city life in general, so just be prepared for this--forewarned is forearmed! The neighbors are pretty heavy smokers, so you may not be able to open the windows opening onto the courtyards, but the air conditioning does work, and there are a couple of fans to help circulate the air, so this works well. One recommendation I do have is to provide a small welcome basket upon arrival. A bottle of water, perhaps some coffee, fruit, biscuits and/or some milk would have been much appreciated. There is a market nearby, so we were able to run down to the market before it closed."

  • Great location for seeing Florence

    "Great location, with a short walk to many sites in Florence. Food available--eating out or cooking--from Mercato Centrale and many other restaurants just around the block. We stayed at this apartment for four nights and will definitely recommend it to our friends and stay there again ourselves. The apartment was comfortable, furnished very nicely just like in the photos, and everything we used worked. Located on a narrow side street which is well lit at night. Make sure you can handle the spiral steps to get to the bedroom--they're steep."

  • Florence at its very best!

    "Our stay at Luca's apartment, "Flora" was amazing. Luca met us outside the door, across the street from the Duomo and helped us up the stairs with our luggage. He took the time to explain everything about the apartment as well as give us a little history on its past. The apartment has everything needed for a pleasant stay, including a small washing machine. Although located in a very busy area, bustling with pedestrians and tourists, there are no cars to contend with. Since it is located on an upper floor, at night even with the windows open there was minimal noise. There is air conditioning although we didn't need it in April. The apartment is decorated nicely and the pictures on VRBO represent the apartment well but can't describe how great the beds are - the best we've had on our two-week vacation. What a great location for our stay in Florence with everything within walking distance. It must be said that if you have trouble with stairs, you may want to find something with a lift, or a lower floor but what fun it is to walk up to the giant street side door and walk through like a real resident of Florence. Luca once again met us on the last day to say goodbye. Thank you Luca for a wonderful place to stay"
