Great modern apartment in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is modern and clean... a great place to stay while touring a Florence. The location is ideal. A few minutes walk from the train station and close to many attractions.

The staff were very attentive and helpful and gave a great orientation on our arrival.

Highly recommended....

Wonderful little apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in a great location. Walking distance to the train station, the Duomo, and many little restaurants. We were able to walk to all the places we wanted to from there. There was very little motor traffic in this area which was nice as well. It's up on the 3rd floor, but Sara helped us with our luggage. The beds were very comfortable and we just loved it here. Mariangela was so nice and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again! Thank you!

Location, hospitality, comfort and living like a local

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Sky apartment in September 2016. We got off the train--after a 30 minute delay--and walked to the apartment; just as I was about to press the bell, Marianna opened the door to greet us. She grabbed my wife's bag and walked us up to the apartment. She showed us around, offered advice and gave us a gift of chocolate and biscotti. The apartment is located on the Piazza San Lorenzo a convenient walk to everything. the apartment was clean, well supplied in the bathroom and kitchen. The sitting area was comfortable. The bedroom had a wonderful bed. We enjoyed walking out the front door and being apart of the vibrant Florentine neighborhood. Marianna was a wonderful host. We spent three nights at the Blue Sky and wished we had spent a week. Stay here you will not be disappointed. We look forward to returning to Florence and staying at the Blue Sky.

Blue Sky was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Margie and I were very happy to find this apartment to be as represented in the photos, even better. Clean and well appointed, it was perfect for our first ever stay in Italy. The location could not be better. Minutes to the train station, market and really, to any of the Florence "must sees"! A car is not needed here! We walked everywhere. Mariangela was so attentive to our needs and communicated with us before the trip, helping us with the many questions we had. She greeted us and arranged for our taxi back to the airport, when sadly, we had to say goodbye to Blue Sky! This place is perfect, the owner is a gracious host, helping us feel at home and part of the family! Highly recommend you book this apartment except for the week when we plan to come back in the near future!

Blue Sky Thinking

  • 5 of 5

Don't think about this for too long this fabulous apartment might get booked up! My partner and I were fortunate enough to stay for a week in florence. What a treat- this is located across the road from the Medici chapel and San Lorenzo Basilica. I had to pinch myself that I had selected such a great location. Mariangela the owner - what a breathe of fresh air. So relieved she speaks fantastic English- Don't judge me ;). She provided great friendly service. The property is as photographed. I will recommend it to my family. Don't think it will be a hard sell to my Mum;). Really good value - half the price of a hotel. I felt safe at all times in this apartment - this is a good area if you use your common sense :). Thank you Mariangela from Karen and James, Birmingham England.
