This unit was in a fantastic location for seeing Florence. The only reason it didn't get a 5 was that it was not really well stocked and there was an odd smell.
Thank you to let me know about the odd smell, I will check to understand the reason. I do not understand what do you mean for "it was not really well stocked", the apartment has washing machine, dishwasher, oven, American coffee maker, Italian moka and all cookware.
Fabulous apartment in a great location.
Excellent spacious apartment - great fittings and furniture, with everything we needed to live in Firenze for ten weeks. Good cooking facilities, and great bathrooms. It is in a perfect location to walk to all of the sites in Firenze, and is just a five minute walk to a great supermarket. Contact person (Stefania) was quick to respond to any queries we had during our stay, including organising our fortnightly cleaning (done by the excellent Pusa - thanks, Pusa!).
The apartment does get noisy because of its location near restaurants, and the second bedroom is definitely quieter than the main bedroom. However, running the air conditioner on ‘fan only’ cut down the noise amazingly!
We would recommend the apartment to anyone.
Thank you for your beautiful review, our priority is always to make you feel at home.
The apartment is clean and comfortable and well appointed.
Some reviews expressed concerns about the stairs, but we did not have any problems with them. We found them typical for Europe. We range in age from 53 to 63.
Washing machine and clothes drying rack very helpful. All the dishes you need if you cook in the apartment. Hair dryer a convenient touch. Bed very comfortable.
Location was great. Easy access for walking all over Florence and you get a nice neighborhood feel.
Working with Andrea and Stephania was easy.
I don't like adding this to the review, but providing full disclosure there is some neighborhood noise from the main bedroom, regardless of whether the windows are open or closed. The weekday noise ends around 10 pm. The weekend noise was solid until about 2 am. We probably should have moved into the other bedroom, but we chose not to. Andrea and Stephania have no control over this and it is part of the neighborhood experience.
I have nothing but compliments for the apartment, Andrea and Stephania.
Cozy and comfortable
Very well maintained and immaculate. The apartment is very comfortable. Nice modern although small bathrooms. The location is outstanding just off the Piazza della Passera. Close to all Oltarno attractions and short walk across the Ponte Vecchio or Trinita bridges to other Florence attractions. Very nice, full service grocery about a 5 min walk. Lots of good nearby restaurants as well. For music/ opera fans, Opera at St Marks is a stones throw away and not to be missed. The only downside is the walk up 43 steps to the apartment.
Thank you for your beautiful review. It is a great incentive to always do better.
We had a wonderful stay at the apartment! The accommodations and location were great. It is located on a quiet street in a beautiful neighborhood in Florence. Conveniently located and easy to walk to everything.
Vintage Florence abode
Our stay in Florence was incredible. Andrea and Stefania were top notch hosts, and the apartment was fantastic. There was plenty of room for our party of four, and even though there was only A/C in one of the bedrooms, the fan that was provided kept all of us comfortable during the day, and at night.
The location was perfect, and was outside of the city center just enough to be calm during the evenings. We walked every where, and the only time we needed a cab was to the airport, which Stefania so kindly arranged for us. If this space is available, I wouldnt hesitate to jump on it, it will only add to your amazing stay in Florence.
Thank you so much for your beautiful review, it is a great help and incentive to always do better.
Overlooking a secluded courtyard in the picturesque quarter of San Frediano, the apartment is unusually peaceful for its location. Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Piazza Signoria and Duomo are all within ten minutes walking distance. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade.
Within the area all kinds of amenities are available. The area is in fact filled with shops, bars and restaurants.
