Location & hospitality perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Mery is a wonderful hostess. We were greeted with hugs. She accommodated our every need. Her recommendations for a local restaurant was amazing, Mamma Gina’s was so good we went twice. Comfortable seating, beds & pillows. The supermarket is a block away. Best place to stay in Florence!

Host is tremendous, location superb, but the apartment had a couple issues

  • 4 of 5

Where to begin? Florence it amazing and this apartment is right in the place you want. Walking distance to train station, museums, Uffizi, and restaurants. The best gelato in town is right next door (Not the one across the street). There's a supermarket a block away. Dozens of restaurants in a 3 block radius. Taxi stand a block away.

Mery was quick to respond to all inquiries -- and I had a few. She was available by phone and even offered to help us rescue our lost luggage (thanks Air France). She was great. She owns and operates the pottery shop below.

Loved the little elevator to the third floor. The apartment was spacious with fridge, washer, and 3 bedrooms. 2 small bathrooms. No AC. Fans in all bedrooms were nice but in the heat we had to keep the windows open. That means the noise from the busy street keeps you up in the front bedroom until things settle down at 3 AM!!!! When we were there there were only 4 chairs and 5 towels... for a six person booking. All told, we felt safe and well cared for. I would rent it again, but not in August or make the kids sleep in that bedroom.

Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful hosts who were more than helpful and accommodating to our needs. The flat itself was up 4 floors, but with the elevator - it was very manageable for us and my Mother who was travelling with us. Great location... just a minute to the river for sunset, close to shopping, and was quiet even though it was at the bottom of Ponte Vechio bridge. I would recommend our location, the apartment, and our hosts to anyone!

Thanks for a memorable stay.

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! The host were great. We were walking distance to all the sites we wanted to visit! This apartment was just a perfect size for our family of five! The apartment does not have air conditioning, but the fans worked well. Thank you!

Spacious and clean apartment in the heart of it all

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful four days in Mery’s well appointed apartment. She was a terrific hostess, and we loved that we could walk everywhere from the apartment. Although it can be noisy (it is centrally located after all), we got used to the noise and appreciated how cool the apartment stayed, even on the hottest of July days. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
