Chiara purchased this apartment in 2010
Because Florence is magnificent, and in our apartment you will experience every beauty of this city in total comfort and relaxation.
In addition, the chance of living in one of the most historical palace in the centre of the city.
Location, historical value, cleanliness and safety of the Noble Palace and the surrounding streets.
This home is in a vey central location and close to the train station. It has a very rustic charm, set in the maid's quarters of an old Palace! Of course that comes with a few quirks like loose tiles and a bathroom that is down a flight of stairs. But for someone who likes having the "real" experience when I travel, I loved it! Having said that, there are all the basic amenities and an abundance of hot water for the shower! The only two things I wish I had at the apartment were paper towels and a pen! The hostess was wonderful. She sent me very detailed instructions on how to enter the apartment (complete with photos), a list of garages to park my rental car, and she was easy to communicate with. We were a family of 3 (infant daughter) and the apartment was more than adequate for our needs. It was also nice having a crib all set up for my baby when we arrived! Thank you to Chiara.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It could not have been more convenient for seeing Florence. The apartment was well equipped and the bed was comfortable. We have been to Florence several times and this was definitely our best visit. Chiara was very helpful and prompt in replying to our emails. When we return to Florence we will be very happy to stay again.
Thank you Chiara

I had to write this review and say Thank You! Your apartment was delightful for my 3 daughters and myself for the 4 nights we stayed. The location is perfect walking distance to everything and around the corner of the Duomo. Close to the train station, no taxi needed.
The inside of the apartment is exactly as the pictures portray. The downstairs bathroom is quite large and my girls loved using it as their dressing room ( two slept on the living room sleeper sofa) it has a large tub, a separate shower, washing machine which we used with drying racks and heater to dry your clothes, worked out perfectly. Only thing I would add to bathroom is a full length mirror, my girls were fighting for the one in the bedroom... Those girls can take hours to get ready in the morning! Kitchen has all amenities we needed....coffee! Has a French coffee press which I learned to use. The apartment is a mix of wonderful bygone days and modern mixed......loved...loved....loved it! Unfortunately we never got to meet Chiara because we were so busy everyday with our itinerary! She emailed me ahead of our arrival with pictures of exactly how to enter the apartment building. No problems at all. She never asked us for the remaining money we owed so I told her we would leave it on the table to pick up at her convenience. When we returned to the apartment after a busy day touring she left us a little surprise.....delicious honey!
Next time we come to Firenze we are staying here!!!!!!
Grazie for everything and making our stay at your apartment & Firenze memorable! We visited Rome and Venice also, but our favorite is Firenze!😀
Excellent location, apartment and host ! Extremely clean apartment in a fascinating and quiet Palace in the heart of Florence. Proximity to shopping and museums is simply superb and Chiara was so friendly and keen to help make our visit to Florence a success. Free and full signal Wi-Fi was also an add on for us ... couldn't have asked for more, my wife and I have lived here like at home and wish we had stayed longer.
We would love to come back in the next years !

My sister and I stayed here for four days from June 26 to June 30, 2016. The owner asked us to do self check-in. Three days later, Chiara (the owner) called me around 5:00 PM, asking if she could come to pick up her money. She showed up on our door without checking with us, she was rude and very impolite, did not even ask, how we were doing or if we needed anything, after all, she never gave us a tour of the apartment. The apartment was in a good location and that is all. The pictures are very deceiving. Also there were 15 sharp steps going to the bathroom. I usually wake up 2-3 times a night to go to bathroom and on many occasions, I was almost falling off those steps. I will not recommend this place to anyone and if we had a choice, we would have moved out of this apartment after one night. We had our worst experience, WORSE PLACE EVER.
My husband and I stayed here for four days during a 3 week trip to Italy. We adored this apartment. The pictures don't do it justice- it's full of character and so unique. The bed was quite comfortable. It was nice to have such a huge bathroom too. The washer was also a bonus.
The location couldn't be better. Florence is such a walkable city and the apartment is so close to many attractions- the Duomo, the Bargello, the Uffizi, Santa Croce, the Accademia, and Ponte Vecchio, just to name a few. There is no shortage of fine restaraunts nearby either. It's also a short walk to the train station.
Chiara was very easy to work with. She responded promptly to all my inquiries and provided detailed directions for finding and getting into the apartment.
I highly recommend this apartment and would stay here again if I ever find myself in Firenze again.
The apartment is located in a charming historical palace belonged to the most famous noble Florentine family 'Medici'. It is only 50 meters from the Duomo ! The magnificent Cathedral of Florence, exactly in the centre of the city. The main train station of Florence 'Santa Maria Novella' is just 300 meters far. A first taxi station is 50 meters far and the first bus stop is located in front of the Palace. All monuments and historical squares, the several streets of art and history and the finest shops and restaurants are within walking distance from this apartment.
