Our stay at the apartment was great. The property was exactly as shown and stated in the historic district and close to all the museums and activity. We had plenty of room and a beautiful view. The property manager gave us some helpful tips on dining and dessert options. It was like a quiet haven after all the daily activities planned.
Great view, close to everything
Came in late and we were met by Sibilla and her son. She was very helpful with information about the apt and Florence. She also assisted us in trying at obtain a cab for our departure. Lots of steps. Apartment was very clean, well furnished, internet quite slow though. The tap water had a very strange taste to it and we felt we could not drink it, bought water instead. We contacted Sibilla about this but the issue was not addressed. Apt had a great view and was close to everything. Over all we enjoyed our stay.
Thanks for your review.
Sorry for not having replied to water issue; I'll reply now (in Italy we say "better later than never"). Tap water in Florence is drinkable; anyway a lot of people doesn't like its taste and buy water bottles (as you did). Usually I drink tap water.
Internet: I'll check if it works properly; the theoretical speed of this adsl is 20 Mbps in download and 1 Mbps in upload.
