In sixteenth-century palace named "Schiattesi", in the street made famous by writer Vasco Pratolini in "Chronicle of Poor Lovers", light large lovely double room in an elegant apartment with private bathroom equipped, in the historic center, 50 mt from Piazza Signoria, 100 mt from Piazza S . Croce, the Uffizi Gallery and all the main monuments. With a view of Palazzo Vecchio, the building is named in the books of art history in Florence for the presence of the curious "child window" on the first floor.
You are very close ( a few steps!) to Palazzo Vecchio, and Corridoio Vasariano, and Porta del Duca d'Atene, the places made famous by Dan Brown in his latest novel Inferno, set in Florence!
In this splendid setting, your stay in Florence will be unforgettable, thanks to the excellent hospitality of the hosts. Air conditioning / heating, TV, free internet wi-fi, hairdryer, coffee sitting area with Lavazza coffee, kettle for tea, fridge, terrace for smokers, including towels and soaps. At your check in welcome for you with fresh fruit and water.
I remind you that you are going to stay in the heart of the town, and perhaps the nigth there could be any noise, especially if you will sleep with the windows open, so I suggest - if you're used to sleep in silence - to get ear plugs at the pharmacy.

Stephanie was super friendly, chatty and helpful when I arrived. The room was just as it looks in the photos - beautiful and the neighbourhood was central and very safe (I was travelling alone)
Maria is amazing, the location was great for the major sites and around the corner from the best sandwhich and ice cream in town. The room was very spacious amd bathroom clean. Air con was a bonus as we visted during the summer. The decor is both homely and chic. Maria took time to give us the low down on florence. Such a beautiful city. We will return to Maria again, cannot recommend her enough.
This place was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Walking from the train station with luggage, in late afternoon heat, wasn't the best idea but we had a superb 3-day stay. This place is centrally located so we could come back anytime during the day and cool down before we head out to the major sights of Florence in no time. The room itself -- and the building, steps, hallways, restroom and balcony -- is beautifully decorated, very traditional and clean and, combined with the surrounding view and ambience, offered a truly local experience. There are tons of dining options in the neighborhood and, although the building is located on a small alley, we felt reasonably safe walking home after dinner. Most of all, the host is very kind and responsive, and we couldn't have been happier with our first airbnb experience.
Dear Criss, please tell Olivia that my daughter misses her so much!
This place was incredible. The room was exactly as beautiful as it looked in the photos, the location was absolutely perfect and I expected far more street noise, we had great, peaceful sleeps! Maria Cristina was away but she had the very capable and welcoming Stephanie to get us settled in. We went to two of the recommended restaurants nearby and they were both amazing, the best food we had during our stay. I highly recommend Maria Cristina and this room!
Maria Cristina was fantastic. The room was perfectly situated just behind the Piazza Vecchio. The orientation was great and so many little extras to make you feel at home. A light clean of the room daily, maps and snacks available, wine, water, soft drinks to buy. Ordering me a taxi was no trouble - even doing washing in-house for a reasonable fee. What a great place and thank you for making the holiday even better. I would definitely recommend Maria Cristina and this accommodation to anyone.
My husband and I loved staying here! The room was gorgeous as well as the private bathroom. It was spacious and in an amazing location. Not a far walk from train station (20 minutes) and then you are so centrally located to everything including all the sights. Everything is a very short walk away. Maria also has a great assortment of breakfast items to choose from along with coffee and tea. We would definitely stay here again if we were to return to Florence. Great host and place!
Beautiful room, very clean and comfortable. Check in and check out were easy, would definitely recommend.
