This was my first visit to Florence and my first time staying in a pensione. This apartment is extremely well located; an easy walk to so many of the sights and to the train station. I can't say enough good things about the location.
The person was there waiting for us upon arrival, the apartment is clean and spacious. We were just sleeping there, not cooking. The kitchen and living areas are small but I suspect the norm for the area. We got a little food in for breakfast but otherwise took all of our meals at restaurants.
The only things I would consider needing improvement are this: there were no Kleenex in the apartment and we almost ran out of toilet paper. But maybe the expectation is that we supply our own. We were only there for three nights. Also, a second set of towels would have been nice but again, perhaps I am looking for more "hotel" service than I should.
There is a washing machine which was great!
Overall, this was easy to stay at and a definite cost savings during our 10 day visit to Italy.
They also had good wifi!
This flat has comfortable rooms and a well equipped kitchen space with a washing machine in the unit. It is within easy walking to many of the favorite sites of Florence (Basilica, market, Accademia Gallery) as well as restaurants and grocery stores. The biggest downside is that it is on a very very busy street with lots of traffic and people noise.
Cute apartment in a great location. Very easy to communicate with Tommaso ahead of our visit. Isabella met us there and gave us a map and suggestions for restaurants and activites. She was very nice and spoke excellent English. The only downside is that at night you can hear a lot of noise from the street, especially on weekends when there are a lot of people out late. If you are there, try La Vezza, the restaurant across the street.
Great location - blocks (not miles) from the train station and the Duomo
