Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a very enjoyable stay. The apartment is located on a small side street with its own little piazza in front which offered an oasis from the hordes of tourists who were moving from Santa Croce Church to the Piazza della Signoria (Uffizzi/Palazzo Vecchio area). The apartment is centrally located with at most a 10 minute walk to just about every major landmark in Florence, close to shopping, and surrounded by restaurants.
Enjoyed Most:
The location was ideal. Centrally located and close to all major attractions but on a quiet side street with its own restaurants, which seemed frequented by locals. The apartment is also air conditioned, which is a big plus if you are visiting in summer, and the living room was wide open and airy with a wonderful window from which you could look out on the little square.
Enjoyed Least:
The building is older (like the rest of Old Florence) and you do have to walk three flights of stairs to get to the first floor where the apartment is located. Nevertheless the heavy wooden doors and wide, stone stairs gave the apartment added charm.
Surrounding Area:
You are in the middle of Florence with restaurants, stores, and major attractions just steps away. Once I learned how to navigate the maze of Florentine streets (big and small), we could quickly get to our favorite destinations while avoiding the tourist hordes who trundle up and down the main streets.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You are in the middle of Florence's old town.
Tips or Restaurants:
On our last day, we tried Star Chicken (which is 3 minutes away on a side street) for a quick and easy take out dinner. I was expecting low quality fast food, but the fried chicken was prepared to order in small batches and was simply some of the best fried chicken I have ever had.
Directions:
We took a taxi from the train station. We just showed the driver the address on our phone, and he drove us straight there in less than 15 minutes (it is not far, but the streets are narrow and filled with tourists who seem oblivious to the fact that there are cars in central Florence).
Check In Out:
The property manager Alberto met us in person and gave us a run down on how all of the appliances and air conditioning worked. He also gave us tips on where to eat and shop for groceries, and he offered to call a taxi whenever we needed one, which we did on one occasion. Catching a taxi at a taxi stand (which is very close) is very difficult as they all seem taken, and we quickly learned that the best way to get a taxi is to call for one and have it show up at the front door.
