Stay in the absolute centre of Florence when you book this renovated to high standards, quirky & bright apartment just behind Piazza della Signoria
- english, italian
The apartment is in an excellent location. Beautifully re-decorated; especially for travelers. Interaction with management was easy and swift! Someone greeted us at the apartment to hand over the keys. I will definitely be recommending this property to friends and family!
close to everything
This place is in an excellent location in Florence. You're close to everything! The place was clean and stylish, but still had an Italian flair to it. Giulio was very helpful with check-in, gave us a map, and marked suggestions for different things to do around town.
Close to perfect
This apartment was great in so many ways - the location is incredible, the beds were very comfortable, it is clean, modern and stylish, and the bathroom has a large shower. We were able to check in early (for a fee) and Niccolo was very nice and helpful getting us situated.
The downsides: an unfortunate sewer smell coming from the bathroom on and off during our stay. We tried running water in each drain which didn't help, and sometimes it seemed fine, but other times it was kind of overpowering. Florence in general had a sewer smell in the areas around the apartment, so maybe it was a larger problem than just the apartment.
Also, we were looking forward to having coffee in the mornings but no pods were left to use with the machine - disappointing.
The couch/pull out cushions would slide off every time we'd sit. I think there's a way to attach them that was overlooked. I couldn't figure it out.
And lastly, I agree that the sweet stay portal is impersonal. It caused a bit of communication trouble as we had to send messages via their app, and when trying to message about the wifi code and there being no coffee, I was trying texting, thru WhatsApp and thru vrbo, and getting no response, but realizing later the code was sent thru sweet stay app. (Never got the coffee tho!).
Overall these were small inconveniences, and our stay was only two nights, so the comfort and location made up for them.
Thanks for your feedback. Please note that Florence is a very old town with a very old sewer system. Unfortunately when it’s been not raining for a while there might be smell coming off the drains. A simple fix is to keep the drains plugged! In regard to communication we always ask to contact us via email to avoid misunderstandings . We would have been happy to assist with the coffee ( there is always a pack of 5 capsules) and the sofa but unfortunately we have not received any message, not WhatsApp, VRBO or emails. I assure we are always very prompt in replying.
Firenze da bomb
Renovated apartment with all the comfort you need. Location was perfect. Only downside : the sweetstay portal experience is impersonal, I’d rather talk to someone directly. Thanks
Thanks for an excellent stay. The apartment is completely new and really well designed adn comfortable. The location is perfect, basically behind the most visited location Piazza della Signoria, but in a private and very quiet street. The host was very prompt to answer all of our queries and the welcome was very warm. We found upon arrival a nice bottle of Chianti and very good tips on where to eat. A little gem at a very fair price.
A beautiful and new apartment. Great location in a great city. It was our first time using Air B&B. We both loved it and it made our weekend very special.
