About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)


Strozzi Florence apartment is located in the most upscale area of the historic center of Florence. Via Tornabuoni, around the corner , lined with beautiful Renaissance buildings, is now filled with wonderful shops, luxury hotels and designer boutiques. Piazza della Repubblica is 2 blocks away and within a 10 minute walk, you will be at the Ponte Vecchio and famous Uffizi art museum.

Strozzi apartment is located on the third floor of a Renaissance building with elevator, off a gracious private hallway. This apartment is quiet, as it is located at the back of the building facing an internal courtyard and the surrounding renaissance style buildings. Your views provide a glimpse into the daily lives of Florentines who live and work in the historic center.

The living room adjoins to a sunny terrace facing the courtyard. While , not having an expansive view, the terrace provides a sunny, peaceful retreat in the center of Florence. The terrace is furnished with a table and 2 chairs.

The living room sofa bed converts to two twin beds.

The French doors open onto the terrace adding light to the apartment.

There is an efficiency kitchen for preparing simple meals. When the doors to the kitchenette are closed it looks like an antique armoire in the corner of the living room. Kitchen has limited counter space.

The bedroom is comfortable with two twin beds which can be made up as a king upon request, and a set of double windows overlooking the internal courtyard. The dressing room area that leads from the bedroom to the bathroom has large, floor-to-ceiling storage closets and a full-length mirror.

The white-tiled bathroom has a good-sized shower, washing machine and French doors that open to a second small internal terrace which is perfect for hanging laundry.

The comfortable and conveniently located Florence Strozzi apartment offers an excellent historic location, modern conveniences, hard-to-find center of town quiet for sleeping, and a bevy of wonderful museums, cafés, tempting gourmet food purveyors, restaurants, and shopping at the building's doorstep.

Within the same building are our Prisco VRBO #52284 and Michaela VRBO #58566 vacation rental apartments.

No check in after 7:00 pm. So sorry, no exceptions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Once again we stayed at Mikki and Franco's lovely Strozzi apartment in the heart of Florence. As always, Mikki and Franco and their son Marco were gracious and attentive hosts. We brought our adult daughter for her first ever visit to Florence,and like us,she loved the apartment and its perfect location.

Right next door you have a coffee shop,a bakery and our favorite restaurant Trattoria Marione.

We would never stay anywhere else when we visit Florence. Thank you Mikki and Franco for sharing your wonderful place and thanks to Italy Perfect for making travel so easy!

Wonderful safe apartment, excellent location, good bed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed a week at this great location. It is right by the high-end shopping street Via de' Tornabuoni, so is a very secure area. It was our 5th trip to Florence so we felt right at home. We generally like 5 -Star hotels in Europe, and were very pleased w this apartment. Was always quiet. The bed mattress was in very good condition, medium-firm I'd say, which is important for those with back issues. Small US-type drip coffee maker provided in addition to Italian type. Small refrigerator was perfect for our needs, since mostly we ate out. Nice bakery 3 doors down. Hair-dryer is provided. Heat wave while there, but the AC functioned well. As they note, you will need Euro in cash to deposit and then later settle up for additional electricity fees for AC ( was a total of about E-95 for 7days); we kept it cool at 20 degree C while there average of about 9 hrs/day, but bumped it up to 25C when we were out, if that gives you any guidance. We never had any problems w amount of hot water available for showers, as suggested by another review. Takes 30 sec for water temp adjustment to be realized since comes from a distance, so if you cool off the temp, it takes a while but easy to over-shoot so then could seem like you've run out of hot water....but if you will just wait a while for the adjustment back to warmer to take effect, you realize there is plenty. Easy once you figure out where to move the lever for next time. Even with electricity fee, total cost was similar to about 1 night's charge for 5-Star Savoy Hotel, not far away! We used small interior-facing balcony only for hanging some clothes out to dry. Small washing machine in bathroom was helpful. FYI, there's a large, full service grocery store w good prices close to the Duomo about a block off the north-western end of piazza called Sapori Dintorni (Conrad) w address about 16 Borgo San Lorenzo; otherwise easy to find small convenient stores for milk, OJ etc scattered around the area. Contact with Franco and his wife was very easy, made us feel at home. You'll get detailed instructions from ItalyPerfect after you sign up. Franco offered to help arranging cab for departure, but we'd already arranged a car for pickup. Size was fine for a couple. Would definitely stay there again, or in the even larger apartment just across the hall, owned and run by same family.

Great loacation, wonderful apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Miki and Franco were great hosts, explaining everything and making sure all was going well. From the apartment, a very short walk to great restaurants and historic sites of Florence. Short walk to the train station from which we took several day-trips.

Fantastic Florence location but some things to consider before booking

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in beautiful Florence, and this apartment is in perfect walking location from all the hot spots. It was roomy, comfortable and met our needs, and the owners are very kind. There are three things to consider, however, before booking this apartment. First, the hot water ran out pretty quickly. There were only two of us but we had to shower very quickly in order to preserve enough hot water for us both. Second, the mosquitos in the apartment were very annoying at night. We had our balcony doors open for only about 30 minutes total in 6 days, but every night we were awakened by that annoying mosquito buzz in our ears, and we woke up with several bites, no matter how many we thought we killed. Third, the balcony photo is deceiving. We were specifically looking for a place with a balcony and thought we had hit the jackpot when we found this place. What you can't clearly see in the photo is that the view is of other buildings very close by. Despite that being our number one criteria, we ended up not using the balcony even once.

Owner's Response: We're pleased these guests enjoyed their stay and the great location. The water heater is standard Italian apartment-sized & was probably an adjustment for these guests accustomed to big water heaters found in American homes where space is not at premium. We sorry this guest failed to read the ample information about the balcony in our listing before reserving, or to use the anti-mosquito plug-in's that we also provided and for which we provided details in our information packet. The information about the balcony is totally clear in our listing; we state four times that the terrace has no view. It is found in the description, in the photos, in the terrace caption and is really apparent in the video too. Our best advice is to read the property information and look at the photos and videos in advance. Italy Perfect is always “up front’ about any property features that might be of concern to some guests.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the hosts - Miki, Franco and their son Marco- were so helpful and accommodating.

The building itself is really cool. The entry way is a big archway, the elevator is an old fashioned lift and the archetecture has such character to it. Everything was clean and comfortable.

The location was perfect. I couldn't have asked for better. Just a 5-10 minute walk from the Santa Maria train station. You're just steps from Via Tornabuoni and the Arno river which makes it so easy to cross ponte vecchio and the other bridges for dinner, gelato or just a quick stroll.

Also just minutes from The Duomo, Central Market, museums, panini shops etc.

I couldn't recommend staying here more. I would stay again the next time that I travel to Florence!!
