About marino barsotti
We Silvia e Marino,love very much our region,Tuscany,and even if we live on the tyrrenian coast,along the famous tuscan beaches,in countryside,we often go to visit the artistic towns of our land,and Firenze is,in our opinion,the most fascinating.
marino barsotti purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why marino barsotti chose Santa Croce
We have a lot of friends in Firenze and also we spent many times in the town to visit art exibitions,to join operas,or only to walk along the narrow streets of the center of the town. Our work is linked to tourism,so we decided to buy an apartment in that area that we think to be the most interesting in the town.One of the few traditional quarters of Firenze that seem to be the same in the years.
What makes this Apartment unique
Silvia gave the apartment the spirit of the traditional florentine and tuscan houses,even if You'll find in the apartment all the conforts You need to spend relaxing days in Firenze

A lovely apartment in a nice neighborhood, easy walk to everything.
Clean, great location, has what you need!
The apartment was in a great location - take note if you don't pack light, there isn't an elevator! It was quiet and had everything we needed. Mario checked on us via message during our stay, which was very nice. He also provided additional restaurant and excursion information - which we definitely used! You can walk anywhere quickly and there are stores close by to get what you need. Great restaurants are also close to apartment. We had a wonderful time and definitely recommend this apartment!
Thanks to You!
Perfect way to enjoy Florence! -Comfortable, great location, well stocked, clean, and great hosts.
Other reviews have stated what I can confirm: the apartment is as beautiful as advertised, the hosts are accomodating and friendly, furnishings such as soft mattress and the laundry machine are extremely appreciated, and the location is perfect. The apartment was a welcoming refuge from the chaos of peak tourism season, and lent a very authentic feel to our entire visit. The stairs are not for everyone, but this is clear in the description and reviews. I will note that there are light switches throughout the stairway and entry hall for light on a timer.
Directly up the street is a wonderful bakery "Leonardo", Il Pizzaiuolo serves excellent food, and the market is also quite handy. We also enjoyed greeting the statue of Dante at Santa Croce every day on the way to and from the sights. Gelateria dei Neri is perhaps the best gelato we've ever experienced...several times per day, in fact.
Thank you for sharing the apartment!
Fully equipped apartment in great neighborhood
We stayed 10 days in the apartment. It is nicely furnished , clean, and well stocked for a long stay.. It is in a quiet building in a great neighborhood which has several really good cafe/trattorias. Daily open market is two blocks away. Apartment is very close to San Croce cathedral, which is not to be missed! City bus stops right at front of the building every 10 minutes. Marino was quick to respond to any questions we had--even recovering my new eyeglasses that I left in the apartment.
Nice apartment with all you need when traveling.
Close to Santa Croce. 10 minute walk to the Doumo.
The apartment is well located in a quiet part of town, conveniently located to public transit. It is nicely decorated, felt clean, and was spacious. We appreciated the wifi and the dishwasher.
We did have a couple of difficulties with this property:
The fridge does not work well at all - it barely cooled the water we kept in there. It was disappointing for us as we rented this property for 5 nights, thinking that we'd be able to prepare some meals but couldn't store food. The freezer did work.
The AC unit is not sufficient for this space. It was very warm while we were there (around 30 degrees) and despite using the unit it never cooled the apartment. As the bed is in the loft and the apartment is on the top floor of the building, it was uncomfortably hot and we weren't able to sleep. We would have liked the option of trying to sleep on the sofa bed downstairs but there were no linens. The extra blankets provided upstairs were not clean - there were hair and stains.
It was a bit sparsely provided - there were no extra towels, very little TP, and no kitchen sponges or cloths for cleaning dishes, just 2 drying towels.
We are sorry about this review as our purpose is to ensure our guests a quiet and high standard stay. I would also like to tell our guests that if they need anything just send us an email and we will try to do our best to solve the small problems that may occur while staying in the apartment. Although it is not a pleasant thing, I will try to answer Mr. Godfroid.
The same day the guest told us about this problem I sent a refrigerator technician who, with my big surprise, said the fridge worked fine! However, we did not charge the intervention fees on the guest.. Change of bed linen is done once a week. Nevertheless, if they had asked for it, we would have granted it in few time, as it has sometimes happened. The guest says : “ The extra blankets provided upstairs were not clean - there were hair and stains.” But nobody provided him extra blankets! We don’t understand… It is not possible! One last thing: when using air conditioning it is wrong keeping the windows open! Especially when out there are 35 degrees.
Arno River,Santa Croce Church are few blocks away. Basilica di Santa Croce needs a good visit,it's a gem. Don't miss aperitivi in the bar near the apartment,along the famous Via dei macci.
