Perfect apartment and location.
My husband and I spent 8 days in Florence. We had planned our excursions first, and found this apartment to be close enough to the train station where our two longest excursions were leaving and returning. Giovanni's apartment is within a short walk from the train station, and with the convenience of many restaurants just down the street, after a long day it was wonderful to drop off packages and then head out to dinner with a short walk back to the apartment. The elevator is a plus. My husband and I are in our early 60's, so after walking 6-8 miles a day, the elevator was a welcoming site. Construction/updating was going on in the corridor where the apartment is located making the area look a bit brighter. The size of the apartment was perfect for our needs and had no issues. I did have a bit of a problem working with the actual site I used to secure the apartment, but Giovanni was the perfect host and worked with me to be sure we had his apartment. Also, the apartment was available to check in earlier on the day we arrived (we came from the US and being able to settle in after traveling for an extended period of time and with the time change was a huge plus). Giovanni arranged for his Mom to meet us at the apartment. She was very gracious and spoke enough English to let us know how to use the kitchen, where to take out the garbage ( just down the street), the grocery stores and the local meat and fruit market. Everything we needed was so close. I would recommend this apartment and look forward to returning in the near future!
Just right for us.
Great location, close to everything. Florence is a great city, enjoyed much more than Rome. Unit was clean and had everything we needed.. Was nice to have a unit without a barking dog next door. Unit is on an alley with no street noise. Also very close to train station, this was a plus for us.
Nice little partment
Apartment is small but cozy, and spacious enough to fit a small family.
It's located on a quiet alley, less then 5 mins walk from main train station and 5 to 15mins to all the main tourist attractions.
It's clean, and has small but well-equipped kitchen. I will gladly book it again for my future Florence visits (and I hope to come back soon).
Noche vieja en Florencia. Todo perfecto y según lo esperado!
La casa es mejor de lo que se ve en las fotos. Pensábamos que era oscura y pequeña pero cuando llegamos nos llevamos una grata sorpresa.
La cocina es pequeña pero funcional, eso sí, se echa de menos un microondas, pero parece que en Italia no se usan mucho. La habitación es muy cómoda para vestirse y para dejar las maletas, y la cama es muy confortable. El baño es un pasillo largo, que da la sensación de agobio pero también es muy cómodo. El salón tiene espacio para esta cómodos y por la noche se convierte en un dormitorio con su sofá cama.
Lo que más nos llamó la atención es que a pesar de hacer frío fuera, la casa se mantiene súper caliente gracias a sus gruesas paredes.
Lo mejor de la casa es sin duda su ubicación! Está situada en un callejón (que la primera vez da miedo...) entre Santa Maria Novella, el Duomo y San Lorenzo. Estás a un paso de todo! Lo que nos permitió ir y volver a la casa para comer, e incluisive para descansar por las tardes si queríamos. A pesar de estar en pleno centro es muy silenciosa.
Tiene numerosas opciones de sitios para desayunar, comer, cenar y tomarse un vino cerca.
Solo tiene una pega la casa, que pasa desapercibida, y es que está situada en zona ZTL de tráfico restringido, por lo que no se puede acceder en coche. Nosotros alquilamos uno, porque de ahí nos íbamos a Pisa, y para ir a cargar las maletas, si no se quieren pagar los 90€ de multa toca hacer un truco, que es pagar una hora de parking en cualquier sitio del centro, sin siquiera quedarte, y con eso se puede entrar por tres horas...
Giovanni, el dueño, muy acogedor nos explicó el primer día todo muy bien, donde había supermercados cerca, donde comer en sitios donde van los Fiorentinos, que visitar, y en todo momento estuvo muy pendiente de nosotros por whatsapp! Muchas gracias Por todo Giovanni, nos lo hemos pasado genial y si nos toca volver a Florencia sin duda repetiríamos en tu casa.
The perfect home away from home!
If you want to be right in the middle of Florence and yet have a peaceful, quiet place to rest and recharge after a day of exploring the jewel box that is Florence, this is the place! You are less than ten minutes on foot from the Duomo, San Lorenzo, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Ufizzi, the Mercato Centrale, Via Tornabuoni, and all the shopping and restaurants you could ever want. The kitchen and bath are just right and the apartment is tranquil, cozy, and quiet. Three blocks from the train station made a day trip to Venice a snap. We can't wait to come back!
Geoffrey is the perfect guest! Hope he will come back soon.
You will be always welcome in my apartment! Thank you
We very much enjoyed staying in Giovanni's apartment. It is in the heart of Florence, easy walking to all the sites and attractions, and to markets and restaurants. It is clean and quiet. The kitchen is small but convenient and supplied with the essentials. It was nice to have a washing machine. The lift was very helpful to us. I highly recommend Giovanni's for a stay in Florence.
From the south: take the Firenze Certosa exit of the A1 highway and follow the indications to Firenze centro. Follow the signs to the Santa Maria Novella railway station.
From the north: take the Firenze Nord exit of the A1 highway and follow the indications to Firenze centro. Follow the signs to the Santa Maria Novella railway station.
From the station by foot take via Panzani and turn left on the first street "Via del Giglio", then turn right just after the corner on "Chiasso degli Armati"
The Santa Maria Novella railway station is approximately 500 metres away from the apartment. On foot, take via Panzani and then turn left on the first street "Via del Giglio", then turn right just after the corner on "Chiasso degli Armati".
The Amerigo Vespucci airport is approximately 8 km away. By taxi, it takes around 15 minutes to reach the house. You can also take the Airport Shuttle bus to the Santa Maria Novella railway station and then follow the above-said directions.
I have been working as Tour Escort in Florence, so don't hesitate to ask me for informations or suggestions.
