Than you for a fantastic stay at your Firenze apartment. Perfect timing from Lisa to deliver the keys and the place was spotless. Air con was much neede in 40 degrees heat! Perfectly located just down from the duomo and to visit other places in the city. Great advice about the car park too. Thanks for a great 3 days
Our stay in Florence was amazing! Our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our time there and Artan's apartment. The apartment was very spacious, clean and comfortable. After walking around in the heat all day it was wonderful to be able to come back home, turn on the AC and relax a little before heading out again. Artan's friend Genta met us on the corner and walked with us to the apartment. She provided us with a map and lots of great tips on what to see and where to eat. On our first night there she made reservations for us at a fantastic restaurant. Genta and Artan also called to reserve tickets for our group at some of the museums. We really appreciated the hospitality. Since Artan is tour guide, we arranged a day trip with him to Pisa and Cinque Terre and we had a wonderful time. We could not have been happier with the apartment and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the centre of Florence.
The apartment is central located as well as fully equipped with necessities. Good restaurants are at street corner and Small markets at arm's length. Very cozy choice.
Artan is a fantastic tour guide. Make sure you leave one day to walk with him in the city! We learn significant amount of history and art from him. Really enjoyable!
Genta was an amazing host. She not only met us earlier than we had arranged, as we arrived sooner than we thought, but she showed us all the great places to see around Florence. She recommended a wonderful restaurant close by, and even walked us there to make sure we could find it. It was affordable and delicious. She gave us information on the latest opening times for all the sights around Florence, and made sure we could contact her if we had any questions.
The apartment was larger than I had expected, with 3 separate bedrooms, as well as a loft area. There is a separate A/C unit in each room, which was wonderful after spending a week in the countryside. The kitchen is well appointed, as well as the bathrooms. Plenty of toilet paper, cleaning supplies and trash receptacles.
The apartment is full of beautiful artwork, the beds are comfortable, and the washer with separate dryer is a convenient amenity.
The location couldn't be any more perfect, far enough away from the sites to be very quiet, but close enough that you can get everywhere easily.
I highly recommend staying here, and if I'm ever in Florence again, I will definitely book this place again.
Thank you so much Genta!!
This place is exactly what it says it is...A quiet haven. We loved it! Genta made us feel so welcome and comfortable. She was always available if need be. The location is fantastic! It is walking distance to everything. Also the wifi was fast and reliable.We had a wonderful time and would recommend it to everyone.
When I first booked Quiet Haven, I told Artan we would be coming from Venice by train. He said he would come pick us up in Venice and bring us door to door to Quiet Haven. He did, and the experience was wonderful. He took us through Verona to see the arena and Juliette's balcony. He is an excellent driver and made our transition to Florence easy. Since we are 8 people, it was especially nice.
Thank you for a lovely stay! We felt very welcomed to this lovely and quiet apartment in the centre of the old town city. So peaceful, yet just a few minutes walk to san lorenzo square and duomo. The apartment was perfect for us and had everything we needed to feel at home. Artan also organised a trip for us to Siena and onto Assisi which we loved! Thank you again for all of your help and making our stay in florence wonderful
