“Oustanding stay!!”

We stayed at Fabio's place for few days and had a wonderful time in Florence.
The owner was very responsive and helpful during our stay.
The apartment is the same as shown on the pictures, newly renovated and very close to many Florence's attractions. The Academy gallery is only few steps down the road. Also, there is a small restaurant and breakfast place in the same building on the street level. The neighborhood is safe and quite.
I highly recommend this place.

“Great Location; modern and clean apartment”
Reviewed January 7, 2017 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Great location - just a 5 minute walk directly down the street to "David" at the Accademia; then another 5 or so to the Duomo. Far enough outside the touristy area to be nice and quiet, but close enough to see all the attractions by foot. Apartment was very clean and modern. Owner Fabio, is very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend!

“Tidy apartment within walking distance to the Duomo”
Reviewed November 16, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Very clean and tidy apartment, recently refurbished or kept very well. No smoke/CO detectors which is apparently the case in Italy, so would recommend taking some from home if paranoid about these things.
Only one large pan for cooking
Functional little sandwich/coffee shop at the bottom of the stairs, with relatively cheap rolls to take for the day in the city if you are that way inclined, and very good coffee.

“Convenient location”
Reviewed October 20, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Easy walk to everything. The neighborhood had plenty of restaurants that the locals frequented. Comfortable beds and clean space. Only criticism would be the shower drain was very slow and required "military" style showers to keep the water from overflowing. I would recommend to others.

“Good location”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This apartment was in good shape (clean; everything worked) and is located close to Accademia Museum and El Domo; 5 and 15 minute strolls respectively. Apartment size is actually more than needed for party of two with a second bedroom that we did not use. Taxi stand close enough to make onward trip doable to train station with luggage (5 minute walk). Otherwise you need to call the taxi company (good luck with that!). Check-in fairly casual with Sid arriving by bicycle and waiving the cash damage deposit (thankfully). "Leave keys on the table when you check-out."

“Perfect apartment in vicinity of Duomo”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My family and I traveled through Northern Italy for a week and rented this apartment for 3 nights. The size is perfect for up to 4 people. Full kitchen, small yet functional bathroom and washer/dryer in the apartment. Wifi functioned well, not a given in Italy.
The location is perfect, a short walk to the Duomo and a few hundred meters to a local supermarket which carried anything one could want. Parking is not available on the street of the apartment but there are parking garages nearby (~20 Euro/day).

The apartment was clean, nicely decorated and perfect for a brief stay in Florence. I would highly recommend it either for couples or family with children.
