Recent Ponte Vecchio reviews
Dan and Shauna from Canada
"The apartment is a bit retrofitted but very clean and comfortable. The view is spectacular, especially waking up in the bedroom which is right on top of a 6 story building. My only complaint would be the mattress which I found to be not of great quality and did not sleep real well."

"Jacopo apartment is at a location that is central to everything. It is a simple short walk to Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Galleries, Palazzo Pitti, and the famous Florence Duomo. The owner and his father are kind and nice! They helped us settle in patiently when our flight got delayed significantly. The apartment is beautifully decorated and located at a very quaint historic area of Firenze. Nearby there are some great restaurants with very reasonable price. It could get a bit loud in the middle of hot summer nights because of AC condenser being inside the unit, as probably required by the city to maintain the pristine antique look of the buildings (we don't see condensers hanging outside the walls in any apartment in that historic area), however, it would be the same with any apartment in that beautiful historic area you stay. We had a good time staying at Jacopo. We could imagine that in Spring and Fall time that apartment would be a little gem."

"It just does not get any better. Alessandra is a delight to work with and made sure we had everything we needed both before we arrived, as we were there and upon checkout. The location means you walk everywhere and definitely do not need a car or even public transit. The view is exactly as in the pictures - you open the window and see and hear the sounds of the Ponte Vecchio while everybody else squishes onto the bridge to feel it, whereas you are living it! Grocery store is 100m away. Best gelato (La Carraia) is a 5 min walk right on the river 2 bridges over. Uffizi is right across the Ponte Vecchio a 2-min walk away (make sure you reserve online ahead of time to avoid the lengthy line). This modern apartment has it all. One bedroom has a queen size bed and second bedroom, a view of Ponte Vecchio and 2 singles which can also become a King. 2 good size bathrooms with good strong showers. A/C works well and cools the place nicely on a hot summer day but leaving windows open on both sides of apartment also brings a nice cross breeze. Having access to a desktop computer/printer is a nice plus. Washing machine works well as does dishwasher. We loved the place so much we made the 10-min walk to the Mercato Centrale to buy fresh pasta, visit the wonderful butcher/poultry stands, fresh fruit/veg/bread etc and a bottle of Chianti and ate in 4 of the 5 nights to enjoy the sights and sounds from the dining room table. All in all, an absolutely wonderful place to stay."

"We enjoyed or stay at the Bardi apartment. It was very clean and comfortable with all the household items needed for daily living. Very conveniently located to services and the museums and sights of Florence. Our host, Giuliano, was very helpful in explaining everything and even provided flowers in celebration four 50th anniversary. We were in email contact with his son, Fabio, who provided helpful information on restaurants and answered our questions. I would certainly stay there again."
