Great location... near restaurants and tourist attractions ..
Improvements could be made with new linen/towels
( they were rather tired), a clothes drying rack could be included and unfortunately power went out within the first 30 mins but we had an electrician with us to sort it ! Lucky ...

Thank You for your words, I'm happy to read that you enjoyed your stay! A clothes drying rack is inside the wardrobe in the corridor, unfortunately you didn't see it and we forgot to show you! Sorry! ...And there are lines outside the window in the sitting room.
Thank you for good suggestions, always appreciated!

We have just recently returned from a long weekend in Florence. The apartment was perfect. A beautiful old apartment less than a minute walk from Santa Croce - the apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. The owner met us at the apartments and thoroughly went through the necessary on our arrival. (She had also gone above and beyond and sourced a cot for us which was greatly appreciated). There are restaurants, cafes and shops on the doorstep. All in all, an excellent apartment and location.

“Family 5, 3 Teens week + in Tuscany”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Apartment was great, location and amenities. Lena is fantastic and the apartment is literallly on 60 steps from Santa Croce square. Cafe Mario on the corner was unbelievalble for breakfast and lunch and the sharpei that greeted everyone made the stay extra memorable. The apartment has everything youneed. We actually cooked dinner 2 nights during the stay and navigated 5 adults with one bathroom remarkably well. Can't say enoug good things about the renter or the location.

“Everything we needed for our stay”
Reviewed January 24, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Communication before we arrived between Lena and ourselves was excellent and we were given valuable advice regarding sightseeing and shopping & dining when we arrived.
For us the location was excellent, it was close to all the sightseeing spots we wanted to visit and to the train station (it took about 25 minutes walking to get to the station depending on how many people were out and about). There was a supermarket a block from the apartment, many shops and restaurants in close proximity. The apartment was fully equipped with everything you would need except an oven, toaster and bread knife although in saying this none of these were a major issue for us. The apartment does not have a lift so be prepared to climb some stairs as it is on the second floor (in Italy terms this means about four flights of stairs)
We would certainly recommend this apartment to others.

“Fantastic apartment right in the centre of Florence”
Reviewed November 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in the last week of October. We found Lena and Annalisa very helpful at helping us plan our trip and advising us of the local area which meant we could get the most out of our stay. The apartment itself is charming and in an excellent location to visit the sights, it is also secure. Highly recommended

“Perfect location for staying in Florence and a great host!”

The location of the apartment is perfect for going out to dinner, picking up market supplies or getting to all the sites within Florence. The apartment is a 15 - 20 minute walk to the train station. When we arrived at the apartment, our host checked us in and provided us with information about the area and Florence. The apartment had all the amenities needed for 5 travelling girlfriends, and was very clean.

Upon arrive, we scheduled for a guided tour at the Uffizi Gallery and were running late so our host offered to walk us there so we were able to make our guided tour on time. Thank you Anna, you were very helpful. Anna also booked our taxi shuttle to the train station on our departure day, which was greatly appreciated.

Also, I happended to leave a pair of shoes behind when we moved onto Rome. I had just bought the shoes before leaving on this trip, so I asked if the shoes could be shipped to Sorrento which was the last leg of our trip. Our host, Anna, was so kind and mailed the shoes to Sorrento and I was able to pick them up at the post office 2 days before leaving Italy. Anna went above and beyond . . . thank you, your kindness is much appreciated.

Great times in Florence, Italy.

“Amazing apt in heart of Firenze!!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is an incredible apartment to rent. The place is clean and tidy and in amazing location. It is within walking distance of all major sites in florence, lots of amazing restaurants, and night life! I stayed here with 6 girls for one week and we had a wonderful stay! Rooms are spacious and kitchen has amenities to cook with. We made dinner one night and had so much fun cooking in our Italian kitchen. Lena is very kind and very accommodating. Our train was late and she was very sweet and waited for us despite the long delay. I would recommend this apt to anyone traveling to florence. It's an amazing deal and amazing location. I would most definitely stay here again!
