Other Things to Note
Please note that the flat is on the third floor of an historical building. As often the case in Florence, these old buildings ooze charm and personality, but lack facilities such as elevators. It is a bit of a climb, but I will have someone help you carry the luggage at check-in. I hope this doesn't constitute too much of an inconvenience for you.
Very good experience! Roberto was a very help full host, the location was excellent, near ponte vecchio, restaurants, and the main attractions.
Absolutely a good alternative. Consider there is no lift for the luggage.
I couldn't wait to write this review because our 2 weeks in this city and flat were superlative. The location could not be better; short walking distances to all major cites. The flat is roomy, cozy, charming, comfortable and quiet. Roberto was helpful at every turn. At midnight one evening I discovered that I had lost my keys and we were locked out!! I texted Roberto at that late hour and he got right back to me with a solution, and we were back in the flat an hour later. We had questions before we arrived that he answered right away. This man is the ideal host. Thank you, thank, you, thank you.
Wonderfully situated just north of the river on Florence, close to the Ponte Vecchio. On the 4th floor with no elevator, not suitable for the infirm.
Plenty of space for a couple + baby. Good furnishings & equipment.
Super restaurants on the same street. Easy walk to bus/train station. Clean, plenty bed& bath linen.
Would most certainly use again if returning to the city.
We had a delightful stay at Robert place - the flat is conveniently located in the centre of town, only few minutes away from the main areas of interest.
I highly recommend to stay at the flat.
We really enjoyed staying in Roberto's apartment. It's so convenient for the center of Florence, feels very homely, and has plenty of space to relax in after a busy day of sightseeing.
Roberto was very helpful throughout the booking process. He even left a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge which was very nice of him!
I would have no hesitation in booking the apartment if we visit Florence again.
The only reservation for some to consider is that the apartment is up three flights of stairs (this wasn't an issue for us).
We have nothing but praise. Roberto, our host was delightful. He welcomed us at the apartment and made sure we were well settled in. He also promptly resolved a problem with the front door lock later in the day, replacing it and ensuring we would have no further difficulty.
The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed. It was a great place to relax in after the extensive walking and sight seeing we undertook each day. Most importantly, the location was brilliant. We could get to all the main museums, churches and galleries within 10 minutes walking. And the apartment building was wonderfully quiet, being down a small side street away from the main tourist tracks.
In short, I could not recommend the apartment and its host more strongly.
Apt. LILY is the perfect hub to explore Firenze - very close to Ponte Vecchio and the Arno river, but in a solemn, surprisingly quiet street. A beautiful staircase up to third floor, maybe one step too much after a long evening in the wine bar next door, ends in a fairly spacy apartment with a wooden ceiling and lots of style. We (pair w 8 year old child) had an unforgettable time in Florence and that due in equal parts to the spectacular city, "our" house, and Roberto himself, who is the nicest host you could imagine, offering every advice you´d possibly need and really taking the time to make you feel welcome.
