“A nice cosy apartment”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We travelled with our 2 children in June. The apartment is on the quieter side of the river in a residential area but with amenities like restaurants, a gelataria and Carrefour all in a short walking distance. The Ponte Vecchio is a 20 mins walk. We didn't meet the owner when checking in because he sent his friend ( whose English was limited) but were provided all instructions prior to our arrival through e-mail..There were a set of instructions inside the apartment also which was very useful. We also had his telephone number so could keep in touch via whatsapp. The wifi inside the apartment was very good.

The apartment is in an old building ( a monastery we were told) which doesn't have a lift so be prepared to carry your luggage up the one flight of steps. The furnishing of the apartment is pretty basic and can be improved. The bedroom has a simple bed and the adjoining room has a sofa bed which was used by our kids. They however complained of insect bites so don't know if these were mosquitoes or bed bugs. The kitchenette is very well equipped for some basic cooking and the bathroom is very modern and nice. We would recommend to the owner to put in white bed sheets and towels to give it a more professional look. Also the apartment is decorated to give a homely feel but it's probably better to keep it neat and simple.

Management Response
5 Jul 2015
Thank you for your review. I would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few things. One of the most appreciated things of the apartment has been the cleanliness, as reflected in previous reviews. So we can reassure you that there are no bed bugs present. As you mentioned, we were always available and could have been easily contacted, yet this complaint was never brought to our attention, which we would have immediately taken action towards. Especially when it comes to the comfort of our guests and in particular the well being of children present. Of course, it is possible to see mosquitoes in Florence during the summer season. As a last clarification, Ponte Vechio is really about 1 kilometer from the apartment, but surely one can admire the beautiful surroundings along the way. All the best, Francesco

I adore San Frediano. It is filled with local people, very friendly and helpful. The area is just 8 minutes walk to the center of the city. The apartment is comfortable, and the owners have been so helpful and thoughtful. Our stay there was comfortable, ans we had everything we needed. I atrongly recoommend this apartment for your stay in Florence

“Fine value, location, and choice”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

This is a lovely property about a 20 min walk from the train station and a 10 minute walk from Boboli gardens. There is a small park around the corner with a great grocery and some fine nearby restaurants. The apartment was comfortable, safe, quiet, and as advertised. We were greeted Francesco who provided helpful information and maps. This was a great choice for exploring Florence for 3 days.

“Would return and recommend to others!”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

This place is as good as it looks and sounds on the website. Staying there was definitely a very special part of our Florentine experience. The local shops and restaurants and the square! Using one of those amazing rotating line clothes line outside the window - there is a learned knack to it that was great to discover. And so close to everything, but out of the noise.

The owner Franceso was very easy and prompt to communicate with and, apart from a microwave, the apartment had absolutely everything imaginable to make you comfortable and welcome. Very comfortable supportive bed. Great aircon. Quiet. Safe. What more could you possibly want.

Highly recommended; wouldn't think of going elsewhere. So glad we booked here.
