Look no further in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was perfect for our family of four! We stayed here for four nights, and it served as a great home base for our day trips to Pisa and the Tuscan countryside. The apartment was also in the perfect location for sightseeing in Florence, and it was priceless to be able to have a comfortable space to come back to and relax in at the end of a long day. Our kids loved sleeping in the loft, and having the washing machine was an added bonus! Silvy is an excellent communicator and made the rental process easy, from start to finish. She and her husband greeted us warmly upon our arrival and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy our stay, including a recommendation to their personal favorite restaurant (popular with both locals and tourists), which was our best meal in Florence. Everything about the apartment was comfortable and inviting. It was our favorite accommodation during our 2-week visit to Italy!

Couldn't ask for a better location

  • 4 of 5

We loved this apartment and everything about it. It was nearby everything for us and we found the most amazing restaurants close by. Note: it's on the 4th floor without a lift, so if stairs give you trouble this may not work. Silvy was wonderful and we couldn't ask for a better experience

Wonderful hosts! Perfect central accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything has been said before and I can only concur.

A great comfortable apartment! My two daughters and I were very happy staying here. Our only concern was having to drag our luggage up the stairs but we should not have worried because Roberto insisted on bringing them up for us! Both he and Silvy could not have been more friendly and helpful. They happily answered all of our queries and poured over maps pointing out positions of supermarkets, "real" restaurants, great markets as well as many secret places not be missed. We would have no hesitation in staying here again!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I must admit that I was hesitant of paying the full fee upfront with the 60-day cancellation policy, but I'm glad I booked anyway. I can't say enough good things about Silvy and Roberto and their lovely apartment. They greeted us like family, helped us with our luggage up the many stairs, familiarized us with all the features of the apartment. They gave restaurant, grocery store info. and other useful recommendations. Silvy was in contact with us to make sure there were no problems and followed-up after we left. I will absolutely be returning to Firenze and stay here again.

The location was absolutely perfect. It's centrally located close to all the main attractions...Duomo, Uffizi, Piazza Signora, Ponte Vecchio, etc.

Can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment is amazing -- just a few doors down from Orsanmichele on a busy, central street. The double paned windows kept out the street noise, and everything about the apartment was comfortable. You must be willing and able to hike up five flights of stairs, but if you can climb the Duomo, you'll have no problem with the apartment! Silvy and Roberto were friendly, helpful, and easy to communicate with. We loved our stay!

Great location, hit the stair master

  • 5 of 5

This is a long overdue review for Silvy. We stayed in the apartment back in end of June and start of July in 2016. The location couldn't have been any better. It's on the main pedestrian street through the heart of Florence from the Duomo to the Ponte Vecchio. We couldn't have hoped for a better location. It's nice to be walking down the street with so many people around you and you're the family that walks into this beautiful, large, but anonymous door while everyone kind of stares at you wondering who you know to be staying here. :-)

The apartment itself was perfect for us. We were a family of 3. My wife and I had the main bedroom. My daughter loved the loft. The loft had 2 beds and would be great if you had 2 children. We took advantage of the laundry. The washer was much needed as we came from a hotel in Lake Como and the typical Florence summer was causing the clean clothes to get rather sweaty very quickly. We also used the kitchen for preparing light snacks and keeping cold drinks waiting for our return.

We ran into an issue with the air conditioning during our stay. Silvy was great in trying to help get the situation resolved and we even had a visit from the hotel staff across the street who knew Silvy. Being American and traveling a ton for business, I would never expect the hotel staff to be that friendly and accommodating. Even with Silvy telling us as we started our rental that the hotel staff would help us out, I didn't believe it. Anyone who's stayed at a hotel in the USA will probably concur that almost all of that staff would not help an apartment rental across the street. Well, I found out the hard way that with Silvy, they will.

Other than the air conditioning hiccup, our stay here was awesome. We walked everywhere as we were centrally located. And the hiccup was handled with the concern and attention I would hope for. Not everything goes perfectly and what you hope for is an attentive owner who is concerned with fixing the problem. Silvy met the mark on that front. She truly wanted us to be comfortable and have a great time in her city.

The one warning is that this is an ancient building with no elevator. Be prepared to walk up several flights. Silvy (and I apologize that I now forget her husbands name) was incredibly helpful as we arrived with helping with bags. But it is a number of steps up. Nothing hidden in the description. We knew what we were getting into. Helped burn the calories :-)
