This is a lovely apartment on a historical building. We wanted this and enjoyed living in it.
Small kitchen but you can find everything you need.
We really felt like home and how nice it is to be able to eat got breakfast and drink hot water.(this last point might only apply to Chinese people.)
The neighbourhood is nice and quite. Walking distance to all major sightseeing spots.
The restaurant at the entering corner must be really good. We never able to eat there. The few times we try, it is all fully booked.
No wifi inside the apartment. We were able to use the free city wifi in all major squares.
Lots of steps. I mean it, lots of steps.
The Terrance was outside the apartment with a few more steps. We only went there once during the house tour.
We really enjoyed our stay.
Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Bettina, la soeur de Cristina et nous nous sommes tout de suite très bien sentis dans l'appartement. Bettina est très facilement joignable par texto tout au long du séjour en cas de besoin. Les photos de l'appartement sont fidèles à la réalité et le quartier est juste parfait : très près des sites à visiter (5-10 min à pied) et avec son âme propre tout à la fois. En plus de disposer de toutes les commodités, c'est un vrai coin à bons restos! L'appartement est très bien équipé et très propre, avec tout ce dont vous pourriez avoir besoin en termes pratiques. Il est plein de charme et la petite terrasse privée est une merveille! Nous gardons un excellent souvenir des moments passés à l'appartement et nous nous sommes sentis nostalgiques de le quitter. Nous recommandons ce logement à 100% et y retournerons avec plaisir lors d'un prochain séjour à Florence!
Abbiamo trascorso tre giorni fantastici a Firenze . Cristina è un'ottima host , ci ha messo subito a nostro agio dandoci dei consigli su dove mangiare e mostrandosi pronta ad aiutarci per ogni evenienza. La Casa è bellissima, situata a pochi passi dall'Arno e da tutto il centro storico: Ponte Vecchio,Galleria degli Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti e tanto altro ancora. In casa non manca nulla ; il bagno , la cucina , la camera e la sala sono fornite di tutto il necessario. Cristina ha provveduto ad accendere il riscaldamento facendoci sentire come a casa! Raccomando a tutti questo posto, sia la casa che il quartiere , il relax è assicurato!
Cristina's apartment was in a great location - close to the historical centre but on the other side of the river and away from most of the tourist crowds (although it did get a bit noisy on Fri/Sat nights from the local bars). The apartment is large with a good kitchen, washing machine and a fab roof top terrace overlooking the City. Recommended.
We had a wonderful stay at the Affresco Palace. It is perfectly situated just across the Arno, away from the busy traffic but close enough so that we were able to take siestas after a long day of touring before dinner. There are nice options for dinner in the neighborhood, from cheap eats like Tuscan sandwiches to the fancier stuff like Florentine steaks. The apartment is wonderfully laid out with plenty of room for two. On Fridays and Saturdays, there is a some nightlife traffic in the street below, but this should not bother most people -- anyways, if you are not tired enough to fall asleep then you are not doing Florence right! Cristina is a marvelous host -- very accommodating and responsive -- she just wants to make sure you have a great time. We would surely stay in the Affresco Palace during our next visit.
We were sorry not to be able to meet Cristina, but her sister Bettina met us as our taxi pulled up, and helped us take our suitcases up, and showed us the apartment, which is bright and sunny, roomy and very comfortable. It's in a Renaissance building with tall casement windows. Cristina's neighbor helped us get to the train terminal and was very nice. Take earplugs as the street is lively at night. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood.
Unser Aufenthalt in Florenz war toll. Die Wohnung ist wunderschön, gut ausgestattet und alles ist in Geh-weite:) Der Check in war unkompliziert und die Terrasse am Dach bietet einen schönen Ort zum Frühstücken oder Ausrasten mit herrlichem Ausblick. Und es gab sogar Getreidekaffee ;) Grazie Bettina, Grazie Christina!
