  • Excellent location, great owner

    "A perfect location - a 10 minute walk from the train station. Nellie (owner) is amazing. She spent a lot of time showing us all the features of the apartment and what to see and do while in Florence. She also provided several tour guide books and maps. The apartment is clean, comfortable and just around the corner from the central market. A 2 minute walk to grocery store, bakery, shops and restaurants. A 5 minute walk to the Duomo. There is some street noise at night but you are in the city and it should be expected."

  • Lorenzo apartment worked very well for us!

    "We stayed in the Lorenzo for 8 nights in late October 2016. The apartment is in an excellent location. A few minutes walk to the train station made it easy to take day-trips to Siena and other locations. The market across the street was an excellent source of groceries for our simple breakfasts, and was fun to explore. All the highlights of Florence were within 15 minutes walk. Two bedrooms worked just right for the 3 of us. The kitchenette was small but very adequately supplied. Olive oil, salt and pepper were provided, also laundry detergent and dish-washing soap. It was nice to have a washing machine. There was no dryer, but a folding drying rack worked fine. The owner Gabriele was very responsive to questions and we really had no problems at all. The tiny balcony was not really useful and the only area for sitting was at the table. Still, we were very happy with the Lorenzo, it was very clean, with good linens, and it served our needs very well. The price was very reasonable. I would definitely consider staying there again. One note: to reach the apartment you climb up 37 stairs, not the 26 stated in the property description. Some of the photos in the listing description were not from the Lorenzo but from other apartments. Its character is very rustic, and that is one of the things we liked about it. Gabriele provided a folder with information about the apartment, lists of nearby restaurants (there are many), and maps of the city center. We had dinner twice at the Vecchio Mercato, just a few doors down the street and found it to be very good! All in all, Gabriele was very helpful and the Lorenzo was a good place to stay."

  • Great apartment for our 3 ...

    "Great apartment for our 3 day stay in Florence. The location was perfect - walking distance from all the sights and super convenient for the grocery store, train station, laundromat, shopping and restaurants. Very quiet and safe apartment and good wi-fi service. Host met us near the station, showed us everything, gave us a map and recommended a great restaurant only 2 blocks away. We'd stay there again in a heart beat."
