5 stars tower

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 4 and we LOVED this place! Beatrice met us and showed us around and it was just like the photos, a real jump in the medioeval century!! The Tower is a BEAUTIFUL apartment just off the Old Bridge and steps from the main attractions. Lovely decorated living area, bedrooms and the stunning marble bathub in the bathroom!!!

It is something unbelivable and made us feel in a real ancient castle!!

Close to large supermarket, gelato shop, and great restaurants. Very walkable to all main sights. Even walked to train station for day trip to Pisa. Wonderful location since you walk everywhere. Apartment had great internet and air conditioning warm option. Would stay here again! Even the teenagers still talk about this fabulous apartment. Highly recommend to anybody who would really try the feeling with Italian history.

Great location and great hostess!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is mere steps from the old bridge and within walking distance of nearly everything you might want to see (Academy, Uffizi, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens). It gives you an old style feeling while In Florence.

Beatrice was great! She met us at the apartment and gave us great ideas of how to spend our limited time on Florence. (For a great view of the town, walk up the hill from the apt to Fort Belvedere....AMAZING!)

She was also very responsive when we pointed out a terrible smell that originated in the lower floors of the building, but which "crept" up the stairs. Opening the windows helped greatly.

Location and Charm!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed four nights in the Tower on the River apartment. Beatrice was waiting for us when we pulled up to check into the apartment.Even though we stayed in late May, the weather was quite warm and the air conditioning was wonderful to cool off after a hard day of sight seeing! We also appreciated leaving our windows closed with the air conditioning on at night. Even though it is a very busy street below we never heard any thing. The Wifi is great. That marble bathtub is HUGE. I tried to take a bath in it one night, but it took so long to fill up because it is so large that I gave up! We enjoyed the whole apartment. It is full of charming details which remind us why we love Florence!

There is a grocery store near by, the shops and restaurants in the area were all wonderful. We went to some of the ones Beatrice suggested and were always very happy with our experiences.

We will stay there again if we get the opportunity to return to Florence.

Excellent location, nice property and would definite stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

This property is literally steps away from the Ponte Vecchio, the bridge leading to the most visited sites in Florence. In the direction opposite of the bridge, there are wonderful restaurants that are in the less touristy areas and offer many selections. Most attractions are within a 15 minute walk. Beatrice is a wonderful host and provides local insight to the surrounding neighborhoods, the "don't-miss" restaurants and other sites.

Amazing find in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the weekend here with my wife and we could not have been happier. It's a lovely apartment with a lot of character and perfectly situated in Florence.

Beatrice was super helpful and went out of her way to recommend key sites and restaurants for our short visit. We will definitely try to stay here again the next time we are in Florence!

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in the perfect location for exploring the central sites and south of the river too. Lots of dining options and a supermarket within 100 feet (or so). Beatrice was very helpful with suggestions on restaurants & things to do that were not in our plan. We enjoyed our stay even more with her great local insight! Apartment was clean and full of character. It's on the 4th (or 5th) floor, but has an elevator.
