Excellent apartment close to everything
A wonderful hideaway with easy walk to Pitti Palace, Porta Romana, and other sights, a short walk to the center of town. A well-equipped kitchen and great AC, although its use is not permitted after 10pm.
Home warming flat
Me and my family (3 adults) spent two weeks in this beautiful flat. It’s an old apartment with lots of history but has everything you need e.g air conditioning, wifi etc. There’s two big double beds. The place is spacious and designed well. I would mention that there’s old stone steps so be careful with your luggage. It’s in a good area of Firenze. Close enough that the central is walking distance but far enough that you don’t deal with the tourist night life in the evening. It’s very close to santo spirito, a popular place that has great restaurants. Other places such as duomo are about a 20 minute walk. The river - Ponte vecchio is very close. Flippo was very welcoming. He left us maps to help us find places. We had his contact details incase we had any questions but we also had our privacy. We don’t have a single bad thing to say about our stay. I’d recommend this place to everyone, families, couples, friends etc. The flat itself is a good place to stay short term or long term. If I’m ever back I’ll be staying here again. Grazie mille Flippo!
Great location, very secure building and great host!
The apartment is exactly as described and matches the photos. It is centrally located to most attractions, Palazza Pitti museum, Boboli gardens, Ponte Vecchio. I stayed here for two months, from Feb-April 2018. The building is very secure and gated, which is important for me, a Single female traveling solo. I felt very safe in the building and the general neighborhood. There are lots of restaurants nearby grocery stores, laundry, banks, all within minutes away. Filippo is very accommodating and helpful. He met me at the apartment earlier than my expected arrival time, as my flight arrived extra early. He had the apartment stocked with items, including wine and water. He is also very responsive and ready to take care of any issues. An extra THANK YOU!!! For carrying my extra, extra large suitcase all the way upstairs. It is also worth pointing out that there are several flights of stairs and no lift in the building, in case that might be an issue for some. Overall, i had a wonderful two months here and really enjoyed Firenze. Tanya.
A great apartment and owner!
The apartment is very nice. It is the perfect size for a couple for a longer stay (we were there 3 months) but also for shorter periods. All the necessities are provided, including cooking utensils, and extra linens and towels. There is a full kitchen including dishwasher and we cooked in it regularly. The owner Filippo is a very nice and helpful man and is easy to contact if you need to. He speaks English well. The building is well situated to explore Firenze as it is only about a 12 minute walk to the centro, while having the advantage of being in the Oltrarno where it is less busy and quieter at night. It is close to 3 supermarkets and several good restaurants and bars as well as meat, bread, pastry, and other shops as well as the market in Piazza Santo Spirito. There are mosquito screens on the windows, which was appreciated! Overall I would certainly recommend this apartment!
Excellent Stay in Florence! The Best!!
We had an amazing time in Filippo apartment in Florence. Filippo is a wonderful Homeaway host, providing us with a bottle of wine and juice on arrival, as well as tons of information on the area and places to see while in Florence.
The flat itself is in a wonderful location and has everything you could possibly need to be comfortable and happy. It was our lovely Italian home away from home and we couldn’t recommend it more.
As described, this apartment is spacious and very well-located, and major attractions are easily within walking distance. Please be aware, however, that this apartment is in a very old building; the locks are somewhat difficult, the shower is very basic with inconsistent hot water, and the stone stairway is a little treacherous. At night, there is a lot of street noise from motor scooters. Filippo is a great host, but the apartment may better suit younger guests.
Thanks Yoe for your response. I'm very glad you were well, as you told me orally. And thanks again for your parting gift.
Yes, it's true. The apartment is located in the old town of Florence in historical building, like the other house in the old town. So even also the stone stairs are original and charming, but absolutely not dangerous or insidious.
Near the apartment there aren't bar, pub , restaurant or discos and the noises are occasional: other zones are much noiser!
Nobody has ever reported an hot water problem: I have personally verified that the water is very hot.
In 2017 Lonely Planet elected the "Oltrarno" neighborhood (where the house is located) the "coolest" in the world !!!
