This apartment is quiet, as it is located at the back of the building facing an internal courtyard and the surrounding renaissance style buildings.

Fantastic Florence location but some things to consider before booking
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.
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.
Charming with a great location!
Perfect location with everything one needs to enjoy a stay in Florence.
Thank you Elizabeth! The Italy Perfect Team
Fantastic location. Very helpful owners

Thank you Robin! The Italy Perfect Team
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!!
Thank you so much for your review, Paige, we are delighted you had a wonderful time! The Italy Perfect Team
Lovely Hosts and Charming Apartment
This apartment is conveniently placed for visitors who want to visit museums, historical sites, and high end shopping. The hosts and their son couldn't be nicer and are very attentive and thorough in their orientation. The apartment, itself, feels like a sanctuary: it's quiet, has air conditioning, has good appliances, and is charmingly decorated. We were first time visitors to Florence and rushing a bit to jam in a lot of experiences, but we always returned to the apartment mid-day to relax and refresh. I should say a bit more about the hosts, who greeted us with bottled water in the refrigerator and a bottle of Tuscan wine on the table, and who offered to drive us to the train station when we were departing. Their hospitality was deeply appreciated. If we ever return to Florence, I would be thrilled if we could stay in this apartment again.
Thank you so much for your review, Frances, we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team
lovely apartment, great location
We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms have high ceilings and are graciously decorated. The cupboard kitchen is surprisingly effective, and cooking is very possible if you don't want to eat the fantastic food everywhere. We did make our breakfasts every morning before setting forth to drink in the beauties of Florence. The bathroom works well, and there's a washer and a place to hang clothes to dry. The bed is quite comfortable. We walked as far as Piazzale Michelangelo and as close as Palazzo Davanzati--you can go all over Florence from here. Miki and Marco were delightful to work with, and made us very welcome.
Thank you Lora, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team
