The apartment was easy to find, if a bit of a walk from the train station. The building was quiet, although there was a bit of road noise from a busy nearby street. It's furnished, and also has plates and utensils, so we could make our own meals occasionally.
It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment to the old city center, which can get a bit old after a few days. However, the distance means that the apartment is surrounded by locals, not other tourists, and there's a nice square just a block or two away to people watch away from the crowds.
Chiara was a great host, and was accommodating to our arrival and departure schedule, as well as helping us find things like laundry and grocery stores in the neighborhood. During our two-week stay, she was easy to contact when we needed to, but otherwise left us to ourselves.
Chiara was a very friendly and welcoming host! We Whatsapp'd her when we arrived and she met up with us right away to show us to the apartment.
The location is great because it's in a nice quiet and safe area but the city center and other attractions are very easily accessible. There's a convenience store a block away and the bus stop is two blocks away.
The apartment was just as described - clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and there's plenty of storage to keep things away. Felt very secure as there are two doors that lock behind you.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Florence!
Chiara, de verhuurder, was een prima gastvrouw. Enkele ontbrekende zaken werden op verzoek meteen aangevuld (extra handdoeken, wijnglazen, een koffiezetapparaat, batterijen in de afstandsbediening vd kleine tv). Het appartement is ruim, fris, licht. Jammer dat het verkeersgeluid van de nabijgelegen drukke ringweg altijd aanwezig is.
Het historisch centrum ligt op loopafstand. En veel staat in de steigers. De propvolle supermarkt is op 150m. En er ligt een Lonely Planet printje! Een aanrader is het groene Fiesole, bereikbaar met bus 7 en de Mercato Central (tip van Chiara) voor de snelle hap en heerlijke Chianti wijnen.
Chiara s apartment is very centrally located. 10 mins walk to central Florence. Also in the area itself has superb breakfast cafe downstairs and several great restaurants 100m away.We were there on honeymoon had a lovely time in Florence we walked to duomo and back everyday sometimes twice easily. Apartment can be noisy at night with sound of traffic of main road.
We were so impressed by how large this apartment was! After all the tiny places we stayed in Europe, it was refreshing to get to have plenty of room for opening our suitcases in the spacious bedroom and we also enjoyed the large bathroom, living room and dining areas. Real gas stove was nice for cooking as well.
Chiara was very helpful and friendly, and even helped us store our luggage since we had to leave early on our last day for a morning museum visit. Would definitely recommend this place.
Chiara's place is just super good as home sweet home. The house is called as luxury. Yes it is definitely. Everything is super nice, clean and more than that. Do not hesitate. Just choose this place to stay one of best city,Firenze, in the Europe. I would happy to come again surely. Thanks for all Chiara.
