We were delighted with this apartment. We spent three wonderful weeks there. It's away from the throngs of tourists that flock to Florence, yet it's only a five minute walk one way to the train station, five minutes the other way to the river. The entrance is secure, and we appreciated being in a residential apartment, not a tourist hotel. We were on the top floor, zipping up a small elevator, and then immediately there. No long corridors. We felt safe the entire time. The apartment is spacious with a large living room/dining room area. The bathroom is clean and bright as is the bedroom. The kitchen is very small, but having said that we managed to turn out 20 dinners in 21 nights, plus all our breakfasts, and nearly all our lunches. There is a good gas stove, a good size fridge, and a tiny dishwasher that worked perfectly for our needs.
