What an excellent location for a short break in this most beautiful of cities! Given this was a period of record high temperatures, we so appreciated the brevity of the walking distances to just about everywhere we wanted to go.
Luca gave us some excellent recommendations for eating out, shopping, and for visits, all of which we tried with great success.
The flat, whilst clearly old and maybe in need of some updating (bathrooms, air conditioning, kitchen and equipment) was otherwise spacious and comfortable. We found the dining and sitting areas to be most relaxing after some tiring expeditions out.
One point to note for guests where consisting of two couples, for example - one bedroom is on a mezzanine and therefore open to the main living space, so not so private, whilst the second bedroom has no air conditioning nor storage and is probably better suited to a single-bed arrangement. Whilst the mezzanine bathroom can be reached discretely by making a dash for it, the main bathroom is by the front door so requires a walk through the living area - again making this better suited to a single family perhaps.
Overall, and on balance, we were delighted with our Florence experience, so thank you Bruno and Luca for making this possible!
Fabulous! Simply fabulous! Perfect location, perfectly sized apartment for our family of five. We give Bruno's apartment six gold stars. Not only that, but Bruno's son, Luca, was a phenomenal resource for the best places to eat and visit. Mangia Foco, right across the street, is the best restaurant in the city! We will definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!
We had a wonderful experience! The apartment is located in a fantastic location. The apartment was clean and well equipped. We even cooked dinner a few nights and found everything we needed regarding cooking ware. We look forward to staying here again the next time we are in Florence.
We were met perfectly by Fabienne who did a wonderful job at making us feel at home in our perfect Florence apartment. You couldn't ask for a better location, right near the Ponte Vecchio and all the major attractions. Its on the 3rd floor but there's a lift. The apartment was exactly as described. It was very hot in Florence when we visited but the aircon did a great job. The only small downside is that the second bedroom doesn't have air conditioning. However, if you have the door slightly ajar its OK. Bruno and his son Luca couldn't have done more to make our stay fabulous.
This was a wonderful apartment, it was a great location very clean and easy to find. I would highly recommend this apartment and we will rent this again in the future
The apartment wasn't like in pictures, it was MUCH BETTER. Everything was clean and new. Very well furnished.
The host is very kind and helpful. We had problem with keys (totally our fault), once we called him, he came in less than 5 minutes to help us.
I do recommend.
Best Airbnb experience so far on our journey. Bruno and his Son Luca made sure we were well taken care of. Luca recommended The best restaurants in the best gelato places we have ever been to! The Apartment is not only beautiful, it is well maintained and a cut above any of the Hotels we have previously stayed in. More spacious than we ever imagined. Would definitely stay there again!!!
