Interaction with Guests
my job it's not only to show you and explain how to "use" the house but for sure what Florence is !
The apartment is located in Via Palazzuolo, a street at the North of the historic centre of Florence, close to the Mercato Centrale. After a short walk you will be able to reach all the popular sites in Florence: Piazza Duomo (and its breathtaking Cathedral), San Lorenzo Church, Via Calzaiuoli, Piazza Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and many other places.
As for public transportation, Santa Maria Novella, the central railway station, is not far from the apartment, so you will have no trouble getting to your new home if you arrive in Florence by train.
This apartment is located in a central area, so you will have no trouble finding restaurants and shops that will meet all of your needs: the entire area is full of typical restaurants, wine stores, trattorie and shops of all kinds.
by the way ..in less than 10 minutes walking you are at the Santa Maria Train Station or at Sita bus station for your daily trip
utilities included only first week
check-in after 8 pm extra euro 30
on Sundays and international holidays extra euro 30
Amazing place and clean. Elly met us upon our arrival and gave us a very thorough explanation on where to explore Florence. We had THE best gelato which we had every single day! Definitely recommend this apartment.
Ellen's apartment was the best stay we had in the 2 weeks we spent in Europe. It's a good size for 3 adults, with a master bedroom and a second bedroom with a single bed. The bathroom and kitchen are well equipped with everything you'd need, from pots/pans/kettle to salt/pepper/cooking oil and a washing machine/iron. We cooked dinner one of the nights and it was pretty convenient. There is also a decent number of English channels on the telly. The place is extremely, extremely clean, and very prettily decorated. Elly, the manager, and the housekeeper were both very amiable and helpful. As to location, it is very close to Firenze SMN station (about 5 min walk), and it was relatively easy for us to drag our luggage to and from the apartment. It is also a walkable distance to the Duomo and shopping area. Elly recommended some restaurants and the central market, which we went to and were certainly not disappointed. I think we went back to the market three times! My family and I will DEFINITELY come back to stay here if we came for another holiday in Florence. Highly, HIGHLY recommended!!
We really enjoyed our holiday in Florence. Elly's apartment is perfect and just as described. A great location with lovely and good value restaurant just next door. We would stay again!
My mother, my husband and I stayed 4 nights in Ellen's apartment. It's very centrally located, an easy walk from the main train station and close to the main attractions. The street numbers are a bit confusing though.
My mom did the check in work Ellen as my husband and I arrived later. It went smoothly and Ellen explained her everything. She also had a folder with tour suggestions, restaurant recommendations and useful things to know.
The apartment itself is beautiful and decorated with taste. Very clean too. There is A/C in both bedrooms and the living room, and it's very quiet. The apartment was very quiet as well. On evenings, the street is animated with two restaurants and a bar in the street, but it didn't bother us and it wasn't till too late.
The stairs were quite narrow and steep though, with no elevator, so it might be challenging to carry heavy suitcases upstairs. It wasn't a problem for us though.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I definitely recommend Ellen's apartment for a stay in Florence.
Nice apt but we found it a little cramped for 5 people. The bathroom ceiling leaked during our stay and there was a minor ant situation in the living room/kitchen. The bed linen provided for the pull out sofa was worn out and uncomfortable to lie on. The apt is centrally located and close to almost everything. We did not find the stairs a problem.
He estado una semana con mis hijos en este precioso apartamento. Buenisima y puntual acogida, detalle de botella de vino, explicacion de planos y lugares de interes, asi como restaurantes y heladerias.
Tranquilo con cámas muy cómodas,bien comunicado y con la estación muy cerca para hacer alguna escapada.
Probad el restaurante de abajo. El menú de mediodía por 10 euros, fantástico.
Sin duda, cuando vuelva intentaré que sea a este apartamento.
This Flat is fantastic! You have everything you need (hairdryer, dishwasher, toaster, wifi, washer...) ! The décoration is very Nice and the location perfect ! We were a family of five in it, and it was great !
Be very careful with the parking ! We should be Warned since the beginning...you have a ticket if you are not resident... If you Wait for the keys go park you car at the international parking 50 meters after the apartment. You would be able to come back and forth as you want during your stay, it's safe but not free.
