“Bella Wellness is Bellisima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in May 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We loved this place. It's centrally located in the heart of Florence, about an 8 minute walk to the Duomo. My wife, daughter, and I stayed in one large room with one Queen sized bed, and one single and there was plenty of room for all of us. It also features a small kitchenette with cooktop, microwave, and refrigerator. A small closet contains a washer. A small bathroom has a shower. The linens and everything else in the apartment were immaculate. There is a basement with a deep soaking tub/jacuzzi (no soap or shampoo allowed!) A particular highlight was the excellent wifi performance and cable tv. And we especially enjoyed the architectural details that dated to the original house built on the site 600 years ago.

Although the apartment is on the ground floor in a densely packed neighborhood in the center of Florence, it was exceptionally quiet and secure with barred double windows and plenty of locks on the doors.

Marussa and Paolo are warm, friendly hosts (she kissed me on both cheeks as we were leaving) and we'd love to stay there again on our next trip to Florence.

“Old apartment with nice decor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This apartment is built in 17 century. So it has a old world look to it. It's location is very good close to important tourist attraction. The bathroom was too small and shower area much smaller. If someone is on a heavier side it will be difficult for them to squeeze into the shower area. Bed linens are very clean. But the floor looked too dirty to me. Walking with socks dirtied the sock pretty much. Since the 2 rooms are split into 2 levels with kids it may end up too cramped since all will tend to hang around the same room. The basement room had a very damp smell to it so much so we didn't use it for our whole stay. This apartment will be good for couples travelling alone.

“Brilliant!”

This is fantastic. I think for this price you cannot find any better. This historical (XVII Cen.) apartment is cosy, confortable, elegant and furnished with all you need and more (jacuzzi!) . It is located right at the center of Florence, 10 minutes walking from main monuments and sites and very close to one of the most beautiful romanic churches of all Christiantity: San Lorenzo.

The best place to enjoy love in a warm apartment.

“Great location, elegant apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This apartment was pretty much as advertised. All the major sites were within walking distance. The Accademia Gallery is only three blocks away, just across from a grocery store, and there are pharmacies and other shops nearby. The owners were friendly and helpful. The air conditioning and wifi worked the best of all the places I stayed in Italy. The washing machine came in handy and having two showers was very convenient. Although the apartment was at ground level, there wasn't much street noise with the windows shut. Overall, this was a great value for the quality and location of the property.

“ENJOYABLE STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at the apartment for 4 nights in late July. The property was clean and beautifully presented with everything we needed for our stay.

The bed was comfortable, and the A/C on the ground floor worked well providing a welcome respite from the outside heat.

The flat is well positioned and close to the major sites.

The property will be ideal for a couple on a romantic trip to Florence.
