The Mirta apartment is on the second floor of a typical Florentine building. It was recently renovated and is very bright and quiet. It offers all the amenities for a memorable stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence.
It is situated in the district of San Lorenzo, in the historical center, the main monuments of Florence can be easily reached on foot Medici Chapels, the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Galleria dell' Accademia, Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace, the Church of Santa Maria Novella, Museo del Novecento newly opened ,dedicated to the 'Italian art of the twentieth century.
Our party of 4 staying 5 nights in Florence and found this rental to have lots of good points but also some that we would have liked to avoided. Deanna was very nice, prompt, and pleasant to deal with and she did her best to accommodate us. The apartment is bright, spacious, and modern. The location is within walking distance to a huge market (5 minutes) and many of the popular sites to visit. It's about a 10 minute walk to the train station as well. Although a nice location we would always avoid walking directly home down this street from the Market late at night because the non-Italian vendors would hang out on the street after packing up at night and made the walk by them feel unsafe so we started circling around to avoid that part of the street.
We had a lot of trouble with the air conditioning in the front bedroom. We were warned not to touch any other buttons on the remote other than temp up/down and power so we were careful not to but the A/C, on 3/5 nights, didn't worked well or at all in the front bedroom. The apartment could also use a second sofa so you don't have to sit on plastic kitchen chairs after a long day out. It could also use more water glasses as there are only 4. It was also a pain in the butt reviewing the hydro meter when arriving and leaving and paying for the hydro we used. We would have preferred to pay a a bit more per night and not have to deal with that as it hung over our heads while there.
Our stay in Florence was fantastic! Deanna met us at the apartment, showed us around, made sure we could access the wifi and work the locks on the door. We were very comfortable in the clean, spacious apartment close to all the sights .
This was a wonderful apartment only about a 15 min walk from the train station and no more than a 30 min walk to any of the main sites around Firenze. Deanna was incredibly helpful and quick to respond and the apartment was very comfortable with a nice patio off of one of the rooms. We did have some trouble with the AC in one room and one of the toilets, but Deanna made sure they were fixed during our stay. I recommend La Cucina del Garga and La Burrasca for incredible food (if you are feeling ambitious, get the Florentine steak at La Burrasca) as both are very close to the apartment.
We enjoyed this property mostly for its proximity to the San Lorenzo market and the San Marco Museum.
The property itself was a little disappointing in that there's no window in the living area and the lighting is not good. The small balcony is off one bedroom; the other bedroom was an interior space and its bathroom is quite small.
Deanna, however, was an attentive and genial host.
This well appointed comfortable apartment is well situated in Florence and provided us with a good launch pad for exploring the City. It is Close to restaurants, a grocery store, the leather markets and a great food market. We can recommend it.
Une impression plutôt positive pour cet appartement. Bien placé à la limite du centre historique. Nous avons réussi à nous déplacer sans problème à pied pendant tout notre sejour. Le quartier est populaire, quelques cafés et restaurants à deux pas près du marché. Bon équipement et décoration sympa. Petit décalage en revanche entre l'idée qu'on se fait de par les photos et la réalité. La terrasse est celle de la chambre principale pas forcément d'accès rapide pour tous. La salle de vie n'a pas de fenêtres. On est quand même très bien dans cet appartement très tranquille. Pas de bruit. Le wifi (petit cube mobile) ne fonctionnait pas lors de notre sejour.
