“Great base to explore Florence”
Reviewed June 16, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Wonderful location, close to the city centre and right next to the beautiful Santa Croce church. Maddalena was very easy to communicate with and check-in/out was easy. The only issue was the toilet, which needed to be fixed but unfortunately this didn’t happen during our stay and I believe Maddalena was planning to find a plumber to sort the issue.

Grazie Maddalena!

“Brilliant Florence apartment!”
Reviewed May 7, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We stayed for 5 days and the apartment it absolutely lovely. Maddelena met us at the apartment and gave us some recommendations for seeing the city and where to eat and drink- she us lovely, friendly and makes you feel at home.
The apartment was perfect, brilliant location and everything you need, I ended up sick on one if the days so spent the entire day in the apartment and can say it suited me very well. Loved the feel if the apartment and all the different bits that have been collected and are around the place.
Would definitely recommend and will be first in mind when we return to Florence.

“Captain perfect”

person found this review helpful

everything perfect! The apartment is located in a quiet side street just round the corner from Piazza Santa Croce in full city centre; it is on the 4th floor but the steps are not high so it is easily done, at least for us it was not a problem at all! The apartment is lovely, full of curious and various objects from around the world whch reminded me of my own house!!! Maddalena was a perfect host, leaving for us some snacks and a bottle of wine! Wifi worked great, position could not be anymore central and can't wait to return!!!!! Grazie!!

“Amazing piece of art as the rest of Florence”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment is really really cute. Perfect location and perfect everything. Will definitely book this place again when visiting Florence. I can highly recommend it! Even if you do not spend so much time inside when you visit Florence it is always nice to come back to the apartment after the long day where you have a feeling like you comming home. And believe me it is really worth to spend some more time at the apartment because it is like a little piece of art, just like the rest of Florence. I loved the idea and the little story that Maddalena created for Captain apartment.
Maddalena is an amazing hostess and you even get a lovely list of her tips where you could eat, the places to see and visit. You can really tell that she loves what she's doing. Thank you very much for this experience!

“In the heart of Florence”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This lovely quirky little apartment is located in the heart of Florence. We found it perfectly situated for walking to all the main tourist attractions, as well as close by an excellent open-air food market brimming with mouth-watering delights, that was recommended to us by our lovely host Maddalena.
We had everything we needed for our short stay, although if you want to use the sofa-bed you will need to ask for the extra bedding prior to arrival. The addition of a stove-top kettle for us British tea drinkers would have made our stay easier, but we managed ok by boiling water in a saucepan. The noise from the streets below did keep us awake most nights, so I recommend earplugs, however this was a minor problem that was outweighed by the sheer splendour of such a beautiful and inspiring city.
For the price we paid we felt happy with our accommodation, and I would recommend 'The Captain - Santa Croce' for anybody who want to revel in the many delights of Florence on a limited budget.
Thanks to Maddalena, our host for all her helpful and friendly communications.

“Beautiful little apartment, great location, wonderful host!”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in this little apartment in the heart of Florence.
Maddalena was a fantastic host, sending me lots of information in advance about the best way to travel from the airport and top tips for things to do in Florence. When we arrived in sunny Florence, we were greeted at the apartment by Maddalena and her husband who helped us with our bags. A bottle of wine, some fresh fruit and bread awaited us which was a very welcome gift. Half way through the week we even received a small parcel of Italian cakes which Maddalena left waiting for us at the apartment door!
The apartment is beautifully decorated with lots of fascinating objects and pictures. Additionally, it is spotlessly clean and light. The apartment is in a central yet quiet location and is a lovely place to retreat to after a day of sightseeing.
Overall, I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough - an excellent spot in Florence!
