Family visit to see our daughter studying abroad

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is exactly as pictured. Very charming. Claudia was warm and welcoming. Centrally located to everything including the train station. I would highly recommend. We stayed with two teenage children. It is a bit loud in the morning with the market but I would not let that keep you from staying there as it is also great to be right by the market for shopping. We were very happy with the choice of our stay and given the oppty in the future I would chose to stay there again. Two comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sitting/kitchen area. Highly recommend. ****

Close to the Action

  • 4 of 5

The apartment owner was very helpful with easy communication. The apartment's decor is a bit quirky but nice.

The location is great with good access to the various tourist haunts. Beware though if you like to sleep in as the apartment is directly above a large street market which starts to setup every day at 6:30am and is very noisy.

But for us it was not a problem.Overall it was a very pleasant stay and recommend it.

Apartment was beautiful and in agreat location !

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was beautiful in in a great location....however.. it was terribly noisy at night and early morning due to the market place outside of the building. It is ok if sleeping in bedrooms but sleeping in the living room is impossible due to noise. This apartment is fine for 4 people but that is it all. Location is perfect for getting around. Host is great and she is very informative. Also place is close to train station and all transportation.

Trip with baby

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our eight month old son with us on our holiday to Italy and we were so thrilled with this apartment, where we stayed for one week. When travelling with a baby, we needed the amenities of home and this property had everything. Both bedrooms were very good sized and our host, Claudia was able to provide both a high chair and crib which was perfect for us. It also made our travel easier, as we didn't have to pack our own.

The blend of traditional Italian design mixed with modern amenities made this apartment very unique. When we arrived, it was well maintained and very clean. We had everything we needed to make our own meals when needed and felt the apartment and building was very secure and safe.

The location is absolutely perfect. We walked everywhere. You won't need anything but good walking shoes to be able to see Florence's best attractions. It was also really helpful to be located right beside the Central Market. We were able to enjoy some delicious meals from the second level and also do all of our grocery shopping on the main level.

The only thing we noticed was that it was quite noisy at night at the vendors tear down and setup their market stands. But it's a busy city and you would find that kind of noise in any large city. We were able to manage.

Would highly recommend this property. Thank you Claudia!

Beautiful property, excellent locaiton

  • 5 of 5

Claudia met us at the apartment and showed us everything we needed to know to have the most enjoyable stay. The apartment was so nicely decorated, clean and had everything we needed. The location is central to everything. We could visit a few sites in the morning and then come home for a bite to eat before heading back out again.

The building next door is the Central Market which sells the most delicious homemade Italian food that you can either eat there or bring back to the apartment to enjoy. The San Lorenzo market is right outside your door, so you can enjoy some shopping at the stalls. The other key sites in Florence are easily reached by a short walk.

The only downside to this apartment is the noise at night. Because the San Lorenzo market is outside the door, you can hear noise most of the night and then starting again about 6:40 in the morning. Our two children that slept on the pull-out couch had a hard time sleeping because of the noise. For those of us in the bedrooms, the noise was reduced but still noticeable. I would still highly recommend this apartment due to how responsive Claudia is, the beauty of the apartment and the location, but I would suggest bringing earplugs to block out the street noise.

The San Lorenzo district is the most vibrant of the city. Famous for its beautiful church, for the Medici Chapels and its Central Market where you can buy every day fresh excellent typical food and where, upstairs, you can enjoy every day from 10am to midnight every type of fantastic food (fish, meat, pasta, pizza ....) and great wine. Opportunity to participate in cooking classes.

The apartment is close to Santa Maria novella Florence railway station that can be reached in 5 minutes by foot and it's close to Duomo, all museums and tourist attractions!

A perfect location!
