“Excellent value for our money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were thoroughly impressed with this apartment. It is great value for money considering the location and the fact that it is newly refurbished. It is just a few minutes' walk from the train station and about 10-15 minutes walk from the Duomo and the Uffizi. In fact, we could get just about anywhere (including the Palatino) in 20 minutes or less by foot. We rented both apartments because we had our 3 teenager kids with us and we loved the fact that at the end of the day, we could shut the door to "our" apartment and have a little peace and quiet (they loved it as well)! I am not sure how I would feel with renting just 1 apartment if another couple were in the other apartment as it is a bit small.

Both apartments have air conditioning, very nice furniture, and the kitchen set-up is modern and adequate. The bathrooms are very small but modern and work nicely. Alessandro was there to greet us and allowed us to check in early and he also left a nice bottle of red wine as a welcome gift. One of my favourite surprises of the apartment was that it was located on the same street as an amazing restaurant recommended by Lonely Planet... it's called Osteria dei Centopoveri (4 stars on Trip Advisor) and was fabulous. The Centopoveri pizza was the best I had during my entire trip to Italy and my husband's lobster gnocchi was a dream - and not to mention very reasonably priced considering they brought out half a lobster!

All in all, I highly recommend this apartment!

“A well thought out apartment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This apartment is well located for anyone arriving in, or leaving Florence by either train or car rental. Both faciilities are within two city blocks.

While the location is not particularly "touristy" it is nevertheless in easy walking distance of the main tourist locations.

The apartment itself was excellent. Everything was clean and modern, and the proprietor, Alessandro, was only two keen to please. We booked through the Apartments Florence website, and the pictures on that site are an accurate reflection of the apartment.

I fully recommend this apartment.

“Clean, new, excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This place was great. Newly renovated and in really great shape. All the furniture was brand new, the kitchen equipment was new and everything was very clean. Only 2 blocks from the train station and a few blocks from the river Arno. About a 15 minute walk to the Duomo and a 10 minute walk to a large park. The neighborhood was a normal working type of neighborhood, not too touristy. The host, Alessandro was very quick to respond by email which was great. This place is actually 2 apartments connected. We rented both, but he also rents them out separately under other listings. There is no elevator and it's up 2 flights of stairs, but that seems to be pretty common in Florence. The only thing bad about this place is actually good - it spoiled us for the rest of the trip because it was so nice! 5 stars!

“Superb Apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed here, two adults and our two teenage children and it was absolutely ideal. A great location, handy shops close by and an easy stroll to anywhere in the city. The combination of two apartments offered plenty of room and are equipped to a very high standard. Very clean and well thought out, comfortable, good security we would definitely stay here again.

“Lo consiglierei a tutti”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013
Google Translation

Abbiamo soggiornato per impegni di lavoro, ma l'appartamento (in realtà sono 2 appartamenti uniti e collegati da un'unica entrata) è ristrutturato da pochissimo, praticamente nuovo, è accogliente e in una zona molto vicina al centro. Aria condizionata in ogni locale, bagni nuovi e puliti. Ci siamo trovati molto bene! Proprietario squisito e disponibile. Lo consiglierei a tutti.
