A fantastic apartment in a great central locale. As mentioned stairs can be quite tough with cases but well worth it once you are up. Beautiful view over the whole of Florence and as this isn`t overlooked you can also sunbathe. The apartment was considerably bigger than it looked on the pictures and is 2 minutes from a supermarket. I would heartily recommend this apartment to anyone considering staying in florence.

We had a very good stay in Firenze! As a family of four we were surprised that the apartment had a good size, and was perfectly placed in the certal part of the old town. The only problem for us was the heat (no air-condition) and mosquitos in the night. Both problems might have been resolved with mosquito nets in the windows, so that we could have had them open during the hot nights. (Alternatively air-condition, of course).Thank You all for a pleasant stay in Firenze!

We called the contact on arrival, and someone met us at the apartment having walked from the station (it was that easy if your bags are not too huge). we were already prepared for the 100 stairs, so the terrace was very welcome when we got there.It was great to find two restaurants direct beneath us which were great, and everywhere was so easy to find on foot. We had read about the supermarket so to seek it out ( very close). The views from the terrace are better than the pictures on the website, and all the facilities were great. The two sofa beds were ample, when the water was running it was a touch noisey, but we coped! It was such a light apartment which was such a great find for such a lovely place. Great location, close to everything, would recommend it to anyone. Very clean aswell.

The apartment was very good but be aware of the 100 steps to climb, especially with luggage. The views from the terrace and the location were excellent - cafes and restaurants in the piazza behind, all reasonably priced, and a supermarket a few steps away for the basics. Small problems - the shower would not keep a constant temperature and I could not get the oven to work.

We did have a very pleasant stay at this house. Ok the stairs to reacht the 3rd floor are a disadvantage, but the quiet place, the very nice apartment en the great roof terrace are making it all more than good. To sit and eat on the terrace, with views on the St Croce and the Duomo, in the very middle of old town centre of Florence cannot be better.

apartment was lovely and an excellent central location, the terrace was wonderful. kitchen was adequate for making breakfast or a snack but no more. a kettle would have been very welcome (a very english tea-drinking thing i know but still important to us brits!). Better directions to the apartment before arriving would have helped a lot. Florence has a confusing street numbering system and something to explain that residential and business numbers are seperate would have been very helpful. Overall would defintely stay there again.

The apartment was fabulous except for the condition of the kitchen. Dishes, glasses and cutlery had been put away into the cupboards dirty! The espresso pot was ancient and was impossible to get clean. It was also much too small for four people. Also, we suggest that the kitchen be equipped with a few essentials such as salt! The terrace was stunning, though. Views in three directions over the Duomo, Santa Croce and off to the hills. If only the kitchen hadn`t been so disgusting, we`d have given the apartment 5 stars!

We enjoyed our stay very much in the apt. If I had time to write a note to the ower, I would have written a note of thanks. The view and size of the terrace was well worth the 100 steps up and down each day and night. We only wish the weather was a little warmer to have sat out on the terrace longer. The terrace was more like a patio with table, chairs, plants, etc. The location was excellent as the supermarket was only a block away for groceries to purchase to have breakfast in the morning and cheese/cracker/wine in late afternoon. The only suggestion I would make to the owner is to provide more bath towels. There were 3 of us staying and 3 towels (one not very large) were not enough as they did not all dry completely by the next day. We found this in rome also. We women, wrap our hair in towels and one to dry ourselves. Other than that, everything was perfecto! We were unable to get the regular bathroom light on (ceiling) lit after a few days but used a smaller light over sink. Thank you and I would recommend your service and this apt. to anyone staying in florence.

Great Location in Florence. Although the apartment was a walk up with out an elevator, the views from the Terrace more then made up for the walk up the stairs. We spent 7 Days with our 1 year old, having lived in NYC for years in a walk up apartment this was not an issue. We were met upon our arrival without having to wait to get into the apartment. A crib was provided for us with fresh linens for our 1 year old. Our son enjoyed the 4 P`s. Pizza, Pasta, Piazzas and (watching)Pigeons! We would definately stay here again. A great way to enjoy Florence in the local surroundings staying in an apartment.

Please write here your personal opinion about your accommodationOverall, my stay was great and I really enjoyed the accommodations. The downsides for me was that there is no lift and no washer (or even a drying rack)...though of course these things were clear on the website and I was willing to make the trade off for the beautiful terrace and wonderful location. The website description lists a flat iron as being provided...I was never clear whether this was supposed to be what we call a `flat iron` (i.e., for your hair) or a regular iron...neither one was present in the apartment. Also, the website says there is no hairdryer so I brought one, but there IS one there. I am still unclear how the return of my deposit is supposed to work and will need to follow up (an email told me I would get it at checkout, but at checkout I was told I`d have to get it from the company). Overall, my experience was very good and I would use your company and these accommodations again. Thank you!

We found the apartment enchanting. The view from the terrace was endlessly charming and the apartment was very conveniently located. It was great for us and we have every intention of returning. Even the flights of stairs did not defeat us although I would not recommend this flat for the elderly or those with small children. We would definitely be back!!! A few minor problems: We had a bit of leaking through the ceiling but that was during one of the biggest thunderstorms in recent years! We couldn`t work out how to use the dishwasher and I got a bit of an electric shock trying to work it out so in the end we washed up by hand which was no real hardship but it might be helpful to have instructions somewhere. Also, it might also be worth having directions to the nearby Standa (excellent) supermarket which we did finally find but only after few days.

The apartment was in a great location and the terrace was a huge advantage. It should be mentioned however that there is a 101 step climb up to the apartment, which we got used to over the few days but dragging heavy suitcases up there was a nightmare!However, only one glich in a lovely apartment. Thanks.

This is a delightful spacious apartment with a gorgeous terrace giving views of the Duomo, the Piazza Michelangelo and more. It is centrally located and enables the visitor to Florence to be able to return to the apartment several times a day if desired. The only drawback (and we didn`t mind) is the fact that there is no lift and hence the journey to the front door is via some six flights and about 100 stairs. For those who don`t mind climbing stairs, this apartment is a gem.

It was truely perfect for us and my daughter and I enjoyed the apartment and the wonderful terrace immensly. The only issue is carrying heavy suitcases up four flights of stairs which I found difficult. I would make this clearer in your literature or maybe be able to arrange help with bags at arrival and departure for those who may need it. However, I look forward to a return stay!

We enjoyed being both so close to the center of Florence and at the edge of a residential area. The view from the deck was unbelievable and the light from the door and windows opened up the inside. It was also an easy walk to the train station. I`d recommend it to anyone with the caveat that in order to get the views there are lots of steps to climb!
