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.

Beautiful room, very clean and comfortable. Check in and check out were easy, would definitely recommend.
Estuvimos de maravilla. Nos sentimos en un Hotel Boutique en pleno centro de Florencia. Cris y su equipo tienen muy en cuenta los más mínimos detalles. La ubicación inmejorable, la habitación y el baño precioso. Súper recomendado.
The best place in Florence! Excelent ubication, awesome house, literally in the heart of ancient Florence. The hosts always taking care of everything. Very clean, very comfortable, very warm (like home). Thanks!!!!!
Criss has a lovely home, our private room and bath was cozy, clean and very comfortable with a very warm decor. The location is right next to the Ufizzi and walking distance to all major museums, churches and attractions. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Such a wonderful vacation. Thank you Criss so much for all of your assistance and hospitality.
Maria was so welcoming and kind! The neighborhood is in the center of Florence. We only had to take a taxi from the airport but everything else was walking distance including the train station. The room was even better in person, photos could not do this beautiful home justice. The patio and view from the home alone is worth staying here. Everything was clean and comfortable. The room is spacious and luxurious. I would recommend anyone coming to Florence to stay here and I will hopefully be back.
This was my first airbnb experience and it was wonderful! My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. We felt like home. The bed was super comfortable and the pillows were great! We were able to leave our luggage after checking out so we could walk around Florence for the rest of the day. Also the air conditioning works like a charm! We were hoping to stay with her again in a few days when we return to Florence but she is booked for the rest of the month. The location was superb and her directions on walking to her place from the train were perfect. Had no issues. Enjoy your time here. You'll love it :)
We were made to feel very welcome in such a lovely apartment. Our room was so charming and we loved the high ceilings!
Getting there was easy with such good directions...we had no trouble at all.
Florence is a great city...we loved our stay and had everything we needed and more.
