Just as advertised. Location couldn't be beat. Charming and homey. Stocked with all you'd need. Comfy bed. It's compact but well organized, like a "tiny house." Walking up 5 floors is not for everyone (esp w luggage) but we embraced the opportunity for exercise. The patio is the best. Having coffee and breakfast overlooking Florence was the best. Loved it!
As you know, Florence is a Renaissance museum mecca. And this apartment is right in the middle of things. We enjoyed our 2-week stay; ate in a couple of nights and ate out at fantastic nearby restaurants, on both sides of the river. Although diagonally across the old town from the train and bus stations, it was nonetheless only a 15 - 20 minute walk. The apartment was clean. Ample cookware available. The bathroom is small also, with a shower only -- with shower curtain instead of a shower stall. And while the bedroom is also small, the bed itself is queen to king size and very comfortable. The porches more than make up for that. And we wish we'd stayed in better weather so we could enjoy them more, both the porch off the main living area as well as the rooftop porch with the view to die for. One other point to the apartment: the stairs. Five flights of them. Other than getting the luggage in and out (once each), there were plenty of landings for us folks in our late 60's to catch our breath on. The good side is that because you're up that high, the nighttime noises are diminished. And that helps when probably the best gelato place (Gelato Via Neri) is just around the corner -- you get to burn off the calories and even late at night you don't hear the noise from the street. Overall a most positive experience at this apartment. And the landlady is nearby and available if needed, and extremely pleasant to talk with.
Beautiful. Location location location. The apartment is great. Offers all the amenities! We will definitely highly recommend it. Lots of stairs. But after walking all day then up to our private terrace makes it all worth while!!
Had a fantastic stay here I would recommend the location for finding everything easily.the 96 steps up to apartment are great for keeping you fit and the views are stunning
This lovely apartment is all about the location and the lovely terrace garden. When you leave the apartment you are immediately on the footsteps of the Ufizzi and Plaza de la Signoria and 5 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio. It is also only a 10-15 minute walk from the train station (with suitcases). We had a lovely holiday in Florence and this apartment was perfect. You do need to be fit to get up and down the 78 steps to the apartment so i would not recommend for elderly people or young children. We spent many nights gazing up at the stars from the lovely terrace with our feet up after a long day sight seeing. There are also lots of places to eat immediately on your doorstep. The wi-fi and air conditioning were fantastic and the little apartment had everything you needed. We would highly recommend this apartment.
