Large and bright double bedroom with toilette, walk-in closet and access to a lovely terrace to relax. It is a quiet room equipped with every comfort (wi-fi, air conditioning, jacuzzi). It is a little apart from the rest of the house to give the hosts their privacy.
The apartment is located in a central area, so it's perfect for visiting Florence on foot. It is located on the second floor of a historic florentine building . Its small courtyard at the entrance of the building is covered in a beautiful centennial wisteria.
Via dei Pandolfini is located in the heart of the centre of Florence. 5-10 mintues walking distance from the main tourist attractions (the Duomo, Santa Croce church, Uffizi museum) and justabout 10-15minutes walking from the train station of Santa Maria Novella. The area is well served by public transportation but to fully enjoy the city it's better to visit it walking around or renting a bycicle
Francesca's home is beautiful with the entrance to her building, views, and laid out design/style of home. She was very kind and even did our laundry for us (which was great cuz we had been traveling for almost a week). The room is very open and lovely terrace, however, it rained when we were there so we didn't use it :( the only negative (which is out of her control) is the ceiling height in the bathroom. My husband is 6'5" and the bathroom ceiling is at an angle making it smaller as you get further into the room. Not a biggie for me though. i would recommend the place because of the great location and personal touches she puts in the room (snacks, candles) to make it feel very cozy. And of course the Terrance... Which sadly we were unable to use!
Francesca is a very friendly host. I did not know that the room is in the 3rd floor, as I was travelling with heavy baggage, me and my friend need to carry the luggage upstairs. She was very helpful, helping us to carry the very heavy luggage. She also has a dog, Agatha. Agatha is also very friendly!
The room is super big and cosy, at the heart of florence! Not to mention there is coffee, tea, and cookie provided by francesca! There's also a jacuzzi in the room!
The room is exactly as pictured, very nice and cozy. There are three sets of stairs (deep stairs) to get to the room, you might want to keep that in mind if you have beg and heavy luggage like we did.
The apartment is very well located very near to the Duomo and other turistic places in Florence. There are many cozy restaurants nearby too.
The bathroom had a smell like drainage, It worked fined but it had a smell. We left the window open all day so it wouldn't bother us but had to close it at night because it was cold. Then we could definitely could smell the drainage from the bathroom. I don't know if this was an issue specifically from the apartment or the building or the city, we didn't really asked Francesca about it.
The internet works fine for a while but then you have to reset the modem as it stops working at some point. Francesca was there to meet us and hand us the keys and show us the room.
Fantastic stay in Firenze and with Francesca, everything was perfect. Would love to stay again sometime!
Die Unterkunft bei Francesca war klasse! Die eingestellten Fotos zeigen genau wie es ist. Super eingerichtet und total gemütlich, ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage ist absolut zentral und die kleine Terrasse super cool. Francesca ist eine sehr warmherzige und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin! Ich war alleine unterwegs und habe mich sehr wohl bei Ihr gefühlt. Gerne werde ich wiederkommen!!!
The apartment was great location and very beautiful! Francesca was a kind and helpful host who was very attentive.
Merci Francesca pour ton accueil et ton français. Francesca a été une hote très attentionnée. Le logement est comme sur la photo.
Vivo insieme al mio fidanzato Stefano e ad Agata, un piccolo bassotto nero.
Mi sono appena laureata in scenografia, all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze.
Sto lavorando insieme a due amiche per aprire a settembre un centro artistico e culturale in un grande appartamento che si trova proprio sotto casa mia.
Quando verrete a trovarci, saremo felici di accogliervi in casa e di mostrarvi e condividere con voi questo nuovo spazio culturale che sta nascendo.
