VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 5, 2016

The VRBO Bear and family enjoyed five nights in Florence at this bear-tiful historic apartment. Enrica, our host made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The kitchenette was fully equipped for eating in and a living area cozy for unwinding after a busy day of being a tourist. The staircase leads to a lovely bedroom loft where you wake up every morning looking up at the beautiful ceiling from the 15th century. This apartment couldn’t be in a better location being tucked away where it is quiet at night and yet a very short walk to the train station. Just around the corner is the Palazzo Strozzi, a hub for high end shopping and great restaurants. The food here is magnificent – we found our favorite pastry shop just a block away. I couldn’t recommend this apartment more, it is perfect!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Amazing time in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome experience in Florence. We stayed at this apartment for six nights and found it to be cozy, convenient and clean. Enrica was warm and welcoming. We could not ask for more. This place is centrally located and walking distance to many attractions. It is also close to the SMN train station. Thanks again Enrica, we had a lovely time. - Richard

Great location for walking EVERYWHERE in Florence! Enrica is the perfect host and will help you with everything. Comfy King Bed gave us great sleep for us to "take on the next day!". Having free laundry facilities was a nice bonus!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Enrica came to meet us after we got lost. Beautiful location and place to stay. We were right in the heart of Florence. Great for a base to explore Tuscany. Near the train station and all major attractions. Had a wonderful stay and thoroughly recommend this place. It is a loft apartment and bedroom is up stairs
