About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

The apartment is quite comfortable and it has just been completely renewed; it is about 70 square meters and includes an entrance with two armchairs where you can relax with the wonderful view of the Medici Chapels right in front of you, a full-equipped kitchen with lunch counter, two bedrooms (one with double bed - or two single beds - plus a sofa bed for one person or two children and the other with a double bed - or two single beds - plus two chair beds), two bathrooms with shower. Every bed rooms has a 32' tv and all the ambient has refined finishes.

Keywords: The flat is located in Piazza Madonna degli Aldobrandini, one of the most beautiful squares of the city, at the first floor with lift of a building adjacent to the Medici Chapels, wonderful Florentine museum that includes the Chapel of the Princes (the mausoleum of the Medici family) and the Michelangelo's New Sacrity. It is quite peaceful and offers unique views on the Chapels.

All the most interesting and important Florentine works of art, churches and museums are walking distance from Piazza Madonna: Duomo and Battistero, Campanile di Giotto, Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti, and the same is for the central train station (SMN) that is also an important terminal for buses and tram lines. The apartment location is ideal for the visitor who aim to absorb the art and history of the city throughout the day and the night wasting no time to go 'home'! I

We stayed in this apartment while our child studied abroad. Now that I have recommended this place to many friends and a third is now planning on booking, I want to write a review in case I did not write one in 2011. As recent as this summer friends have enjoyed this apartment, as much as my family did! The location can't be beat with regard to walking to the Duomo, Medici Chapel, Market, bus and train. Our cab to and from the airport came right to the front door (this is not possible in all areas of Florence due to narrow streets). The apartment is spotless, spacious and allows for stovetop cooking, you can save on some meals. The Owner is friendly and helpful. The layout of two BR/two BA is a huge convenience. This apartment is only about 10 steps up on the first floor, with an elevator. This is a key point when shopping apartments in Florence--many are 85 steps or more up to 4th or 5th floors without elevators. So even if this apt size is more than what you need (e.g. a couple looking for a 1BR), the price is appropriate and it may be a better benefit to pay for a larger apt in order to have the great location and elevator access. There is steps in the entry way to get to the elevator, so if someone has limited mobility as for details on arrangement of the entry steps, but the elevator and one level apartment make it more accessible than most.

Excellent apartment in excellent location of Florence! Easy walk to/from train station and in the heart of the city. The apartment is very clean and exactly like the pictures. The beds are comfortable, ac works well, bedrooms are spacious, and it is VERY quiet. (Besides the wonderful things to do in Florence, we also did a day trip to Cinque Terre with WalkAboutFlorence and a Tuscan vespa day trip with Fun In Tuscany - both meeting points were an easy walk from the apartment and we highly recommend - especially the vespa tour!) This apartment owner is top notch. She provided excellent information prior to and during our stay. She was flexible to work with and was able to store our luggage for us on the day we left so we could stay longer on our day of departure. Her sister, Ginevra, greeted us upon arrival and met us at the exact time we requested to give us our luggage on departure day. She was an absolute delight - so friendly and helpful! Our family of four enjoyed our stay in this apartment and would definitely stay here again!!!

Wonderful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Florence by train and took the short 10 minute walk to the apartment where Ginevra greeted us and settled us into the apartment. The location couldn't be more central - adjacent to the Medici Chapel and within 15 minutes of practically every site in Florence! The apartment is elegantly furnished and has everything we needed for our stay. There is an excellent restaurant next door and the steak is fantastic! Ginevra took our bags in for us on our day of departure so that we could do some more sightseeing before our train that afternoon. I would definitely recommend this apartment for your next stay in Florence!

Great Rental - No need to Worry

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using HomeAway and therefore even though I had read all the reviews of the places that my family and I were staying, I was very skeptical. The beautiful thing about this apartment was the fact that the owners would answer my emails immediately and provide helpful hints. There were 5 of us so finding an affordable apartment in Italy was a challenge, however this is were this apartment and owners shined. The space was plentiful, the beds were comfortable, the apartment was very clean and all the tools needed to cook were available. You will not need any transportation if you will be concentrated in the centre of Florence, as this apartment is minutes walks to all the attractions. I cannot say enough about the apartment and owner, Benedetta, sister and mother. Wonderful, stay with absolutely NO problems. I will be contacting them again in the future. Thank you.

Fantastic apartment in the center of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Mama mia, what a great place and host. The apartment is very modern and clean. It literally abuts the Medici Chapels, which is central to everything. The host was extremely helpful. She even went back and rescued our passports, which we accidentally left in the safe, and brought them to us on the edge of town.
