Beautiful apartment - great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days and loved it! It's location is fantastic - about 5-10 minutes from everything we wanted to see and do. The apartment is cozy, comfortable and charming. We enjoyed relaxing here in the mornings and in the afternoons/evenings after a day of sightseeing. The building has a tiny elevator, which we mostly did not use, as the unit is an easy walk up 20+ stairs. With the windows open (which we enjoyed), there is a little street noise during the day, but with the very well crafted large windows, this did not create a problem at all and there was very little noise at night - so nothing to disturb our sleep. The apartment also has a great restaurant in the building just downstairs, as well as lots of great shopping and dining nearby. One of our favorites for coffee and breakfast was the Cafe Amerini, which is an outstanding little cafe and bakery just 100 feet down the street. There is also a bus stop right in front of the building, though we found walking or going by cab easiest. We would not hesitate recommending this apartment to friends and we can't wait to come back and stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you so much for leaving this great review,I think that describes perfectly my apartment and the surroundings,the tiny elevator to date doesn’t work ,it a private elevator that lead to another of our flats on the upper floor but we are managing to make some works togheter with the other owners in order to let it stop in the lower floor as well. I thought that it was a nice idea to give you my Loft since it is bigger and with same amenities,we manage 5 charming flats in this building all linked togheter by the same taste and quality !

Wonderful, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, my travel plans changed (twice) during the period when I had hoped to stay at this beautiful apartment. Pietro was very understanding and helpful, including when I ultimately had to cancel my reservation after my trip was cancelled. I hope to have the opportunity to visit Florence in the future and to stay in this apartment then.

Amazing stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Florence. The apartment was amazing, beautifully adorned with frescoes and it was immaculately clean. It is centrally located in Florence and within a 10 minute walk of all the major sights. It was an easy 10 minute walk with our luggage from the train station. There are numerous shops and restaurants in the area. Gaia provided us with an extensive list of shops/restaurants/grocery stores/points of interest before check-in so we were well prepared for our time in Florence. We hope to be back one day and will definitely stay here again!
