Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The apartment 'Florian' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift ) of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence’s most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area with all the advantages that an area like that can offer

Spending time in my apartment is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s belltower and the splendour of Vasari’s frescos, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.

Florian directly faces the Duomo, giving you the sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble facade. The apartment has been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts.

Florian is a romantic and welcoming apartment comprising: a cosy living room with a comfortable sofa bed (120 by 195), a small and fully-equipped kitchen with a balcony that offers a charming view of Florence, a bedroom with two single beds (85 by 200) that can be transformed into a double bed. A small entrance hall with a splendid view of the Duomo and one modern bathroom with shower complete the description of the apartment.

All modern comforts are provided: air conditioning, LCD TV, satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, american coffee, WiFI internet dsl no cable, air conditioning, safe, security door and intercom.

FINAL CLEANING: Euros 50 upon arrival ( check-in ).

STAY TAX

The city of Florence has decided to extend the “Stay tax” (introduced in 2011) also to private rentals (on top of Hotels, B&B and so on..)

The tax is 2.50 EURO PER NIGHT/EACH GUEST for a max of 7 nights ( see my rental agreement for more info ).

Florian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location with in walking distance to all classic Florentine venues. Quiet building with easy access to buses to anywhere. Many breakfast outlets and restaurants closeby. The Duomo bells are silent at night. Nightlife at outdoor cafe on next block goes until late, ear plugs a good option if light sleeper. Remember that ground is floor 1! So a 4th floor walk up is really the fifth floor. Stairs are easy, well lit. Worth the climb! Friendly and helpful owner who speaks English. We will stay here again.

Wonderful stay at the Florian

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 days in July in Florence at Luca's apartment. In all our communications Luca was very prompt and professional. We had requested an early check in and Luca was ready waiting for us when we got in. The apartment is beautiful and every aspect of it has been done very tastefully. There are three main areas each having its own air conditioning unit and the bathroom has a very elegant and modern finish. All the rooms have sound proof windows. The location of the apartment cannot be better. We were able to walk to wherever we needed to get to. We had a wonderful time in Florence and if we visit again we will absolutely stay here again.

Classic Florence Flavor / Location Can't Be Beat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the Florian Apartment for nights and we had such a great time. Once you meet the owner, Luca, you will feel the love and passion of Florence through his fantastic demeanor and personality. He made us feel right at home from the first moment we met.

The apartment itself is a treasure. It is so full of character right in the heart of the Piazza de Duomo. During the day we had a fantastic home base so close to all the historic riches the city has to offer, and at night it was our own personal sanctuary. The apartment is fitted with sound proof windows and sound was never an issue. Open the windows and you feel like you are on the Piazza floor with music and charm filling the room. 3 separate A/C units cool the apartment quickly. It was 93 F our entire trip, and the A/C worked flawlessly.

Everything you need including a supermarket were just steps away.

Thank you Luca for a wonderful stay. We can't wait to return the Florian on our next visit to Florence.

Cozy Flat, Great location and price!

  • 5 of 5

Luca was a great host! When we arrived to the apartment, he took his time and was very thorough in showing us all of the amenities. He even recommended a few good eateries and a grocery store near us.

The property is located right in the center of Florence, next to the Duomo. It is close to all the major museums and churches. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. Luca spent some time renovating it and bringing it up to date. My fiance and I especially enjoyed the views. I would advise opening the windows and enjoying the sounds of the crowds walking by and the street musicians playing.

I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and Family. Luca, thank you for a wonderful stay.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The apt is extremely clean, comfortable, and in a perfect location. It seemed like we never walked more than 15 min whether we were walking to see David, the river, or one of the fabulous restaurants. And after a fabulous day, the apt offers a comfy bed in the quietest, darkest room we've slept in...even had AC! Luca was a wonderful host and we hope to some day return to this amazing city.

Wonderful view, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has the best view of the Duomo it,s possible to have. It's beautifully decorated, comfortable, and, thanks to double glazing, quiet. And if you like to hear music and street sounds, all you have to do is open a window.
