About Elisa Kollerud
I lived and studied in Florence a long time ago and this is my favorite place on earth. Before buying this apartment I must have been to 30 viewings, without finding what I was looking for; A light apartment with a balcony, beamed Tuscan style ceiling, a view, situated in the historic center and in a quiet area. Not easy - but I found it! I am positive you will enjoy your stay in my cozy apartment.
Elisa Kollerud purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Elisa Kollerud chose San Marco-San Gallo
The location - the style of the apartment - the calm sensation when you enter from the excitement of the city. The fact that it has all the commodities one is accustomed to in the 21 century. Air-conditioning, Internet - WiFi, docking station, dishwasher, washing machine, TV, DVD + selection of DVD's. radio. etc. Being a historic city there are parking restictions in the city centre. However this apartment is only 50 metrs form the ZTL ( Zone Traffico Limitato ) in addtion there is apaprking garage only 2 min walk in Via San Zanobi. So parking is not a problem!

Perfect location - lovely flat
I really enjoyed my holiday i Florence! The apartment is beautifully decorated and I felt at home immedietly. Located within walking distance to all the major sights and equipped with everything. :-)
Spacious and very well equipped
A very nice, well equipped, spacious apartment that is only about 15 minutes walk from the train station, about 5 minutes from the main bus hub, and just a short walk from the main tourist attractions. There is a good supermarket on the same street and some decent restaurants nearby.
Be aware that the apartment is on the third floor and there is no elevator. However, my wife and I are both over 60 and we did not find the stairs too much of a problem, except when carrying the luggage. Of course being on a high floor does give the advantage of isolating street noise and helping to ensure a peaceful night's sleep.
Great apartment on a quiet street
I really enjoyed my 2 week stay at Elisa’s apartment. The apartment is very nice and bright (local Italian friends who stopped by one evening loved it), is on a tranquil street close to the historic center and has all the amenities one might need. Between the orientation at check-in and the written information provided, it was easy to use the amenities. While there aren’t 2 separate rooms set up as bedrooms, the living room, bedroom and bath all connect to the kitchen and all have locking doors, so it would be easy to use the sofa bed and folding lounge chair in the living room as a private bedroom space for up to 3 more people. In addition to the small balcony with lines to dry laundry, there’s a small terrace with table and 2 chairs (no views but it’s a nice extra). I’d rate the apartment as near-perfect, with my only minor complaint being that the pillows were too insubstantial for my taste. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent the apartment again, and I may very well do that if it’s available during my next visit to Florence.
Nice flat in quiet street near attractions
I rented the property with a friend. We were under the impression that there were 2 beds meaning 2 bedrooms however only one bedroom with one large bed and a single chair that can be made a single bed. This was the only negative of the place in addition to not having clear explanation on how to make the timer of the air con/heating work.
Overall a good flat near the Academia and other monuments. It took us a little time to realise that we had a straight line to get to the Duomo (7 minutes walking and similarity to get to the train station). Location is great. The flat is nice and clean and Host very helpful. The balcony is tiny and can see the Duomo from it. It is very easy to return to the flat if in need of a rest as very close to the center. It has a small fridge but suffice. A small Carrefour express in that Street too.
I would happily return as location is good and there is a nice comfy feel about the flat (not much electric lights...for reading).
