“Perfect Location”
Reviewed March 31, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This apartment was perfect for us. Located mere yards from the Duomo, it was within easy walking distance to all of the sights in Florence. Train station a 10 minute walk for excursions outside the city. Couldn't have been more pleased. Will definitely make this our home base in Florence moving forward.

“Perfect stay in every way.”
Reviewed March 22, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The location was wonderful - the Duomo at one end of the street and Piazza Annunziata at the other. Within walking distance of everything you could want to see in the historic center. The apartment itself is excellent. Huge living room with a small dinette, kitchen complete with modern coffeemaker and everything you need to cook and eat, two really large bedrooms with comfortable beds, one large bathroom, one small bathroom and and washer dryer! And a sofa bed, although we never used it. If you're travelling over one week, you know what a gift that is. With windows closed, no noticeable street noise and perfectly comfortable in every way. I would say easily suited for four, six if a couple of kids are in the mix. Eleanora was wonderful. Met us at the door, even though we were late, gave us a map and directions and suggestions and the offer to contact her for any help. She even left us with a nice bottle of wine, some water and some coffee for the morning. I would definitely stay here again and I would definitely recommend Eleanora and her lovely apartment to anyone I really liked.

“Lovely apartment and great location!”
Reviewed February 8, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This was a lovely apartment with everything you need to feel at home. It is in a great location right next to the Duomo and within walking distance to many sites and great shops in Florence. Eleonora was so helpful in explaining how everything worked and giving us great tips on shops and sites. She even helped us get a cooking class set up. The bedroom on the street side can be a little noisy but not much of a problem. The restaurant next to the apartment was closed during our stay. So really could not say if this would be a problem when open. Based on our experience I would definitely recommend a stay in Eleonora's home!

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed January 25, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Truly an excellent, spacious, characterful apartment in a fabulous location next door to the Duomo and easy walking reach of everywhere you can think of to visit in the city. Also great supermarket very close by for emergency Chianti! Eleonora is a very warm, charming and welcoming owner and has lots of great and useful information to impart. The apartment had everything we could possibly want or need; it's an oasis in the heart of a busy and beautiful city. Very safe, very clean and actually just brilliant. Will be returning and highly recommend.

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed December 23, 2016 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Couldn't be better located, right next to the Duomo and easy to drop into for lunch or afternoon tea break. Eleonora was so helpful not only in explaining how everything in the apartment worked but also in recommending a first class supermarket nearby and restaurants. Very comfortable apartment, but a couple of reasons why I wouldn't give it five stars - the cramped shower and the noise outside on some nights.

Sorry you have found the shower uncomfortable: as described on site it is placed in an ensuite bathroom, which is small due to the antiquity of the building (XVIth century), recently restored; generally the historical feature of the apartment is very much appreciated. Moreover, the apartment is provided with another large bathroom, the master one, Jacuzzi equipped. Hoping to have possibility to host you again in Florence. Eleonora.

“Location, location, location, and even an elevator!”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Three of us spent 7 nights in Eleanora's lovely apartment, just a few steps from the Duomo and the heart of the historic city. The place was immaculately clean and even stocked with basic kitchen staples. Eleanora greeted us at an earlier than normal check in and explained everything in the apartment. Recommendations for shopping and restaurants were given on a map she provided. The pictures provided are accurate. Adequate storage for luggage and clothing, and the Jacuzzi bathroom had a lot of counter space. The elevator was a bonus after a long day of sightseeing. There are a lot of tour books on the shelves, wifi, and a flat screen tv with Italian tv shows. Eleanora even called a taxi upon our checkout and walked us to the corner, waiting with us until it came. Highly recommended!
