Great location, some issues.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location. Right outside the heart of everything. No lift so make sure you can carry your luggage up some steep stairs. A bit noisy but not terrible. Well equipped.

The thing we didn’t like was the sleeping loft. I thought it was dangerous. It was added on. VERY steep stairs, not really a proper hand rail at the end. The bathroom was down the stairs. We always carry a couple of small flashlights when we travel and used them if we had to get up at night.

Nice place but be warned if you are the least unsteady on your feet or have poor night vision.

There was a futon downstairs as a sleeping option though. But it was also the living room couch.

Washer, dry rack, decent kitchen, fair size shower, bidet, grocery store close, ATM. Pretty much everything.

One last thing. The keys were a little bit of a problem. Needed to be jiggled just right. Once, I could not get my key to the outside door to work. We were able to use my wife’s key though, barely. Lucky we had both. It was late and the door was coming into the building from the street.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Once we got used to the quirks like don't wash clothes or flush toilet if you are in the shower it all worked well. If you have mobility issues climbing 4 flights won't work or if you get up several times to pee in the night you might not like going up and down to do it. But kitchen is good. Bathroom size is good. Bed is comfortable. Location is excellent two blocks to central market and two blocks to grocery store. Close to Medici tombs and the Duomo. Close to train and bus station. Good communication with Cosimo before. Enjoyed our 6 nights there.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was great for location and size! Cosimo was great and very timely with responses. The only thing we didn't like was the air conditioner wasn't really that great for a big apartment, it didn't really cool off the lofted part with the bed. Other than that, it was great!

Comfortable and Convenient with all Ammenities

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 3) enjoyed our stay in Cosimo's loft apartment. It was clean, cozy, centrally located and offered all the desired amenities. We especially appreciated the clothes washer, soap and drying rack--quite useful after several days of traveling. Wifi was quite good too. The only suggestion would be to leave more toilet paper in the apartment for 3 guests. We appreciated Cosimo's dining recommendations and frequented locations he recommended.

Cosimo was responsive to our pre-travel inquiries and met us upon our arrival to show us the apartment. We would stay here again if our travels take us back to Florence.

His property was nicely maintained and the description on the site accurately described the apartment.

Great location, cosy apartment, very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Giulio at the apartment and he was very helpful in explaining how to get the most out of our stay in Florence. The apartment is in a very central location so we could walk to all the things we wanted to see and it close to a grocery store. It's well equipped and very comfortable. We had a fantastic stay.

A disappointing experience

  • 1 of 5

While close to the station and the market, the suite was in a poor neighbourhood and very loud at all times (day and night), appalling wifi/internet signal (5 min to open an email), we lost water for a whole night and electricity in the stairwell for another night (pitch black climb up 2 floors).

Not ideal for the price.

The camera work for the suite also flattered the size of the suite and the loft was a lofty climb.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry if your experience was terrific. The water went down in all the city that night, in my apartment as well, because there was a big maintenance work in all the city water network. For the same reason the light in the stairs was turned off because of security, then I'm sorry if it wasn't turned on again for the next days but the main system had a problem because of the water pressure, you know that water and electricity don't like to stay together... The neighboroud is not poor, what did you expected after booking an apartment in San Lorenzo disctrict? I don't understand what you exavtly mean. this is the first time I receive such a negative review honelstly... You saw the pictures and the descriptions of the apartment, so I don't understand what was your problem with the size of the room. If you had informed me about the internet connection I would have done something. I'm sorry for this review, it destroy all the good I have received in the past two years, I hope you can come back here and seeing allt he improvments next season. I hope you can change your idea about this one star review... Thank you very much Cosimo
