In a building of great historical importance and notified, in the heart of the historic center just 50 meters from Piazza Pitti, we rented for short periods beautiful tastefully decorated apartment. Located in district d' Oltrarno, the most characteristic quarters of Florence, under the house with all services (bus, chemist, supermarket, banks, etc..), a few steps from Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Santo Spirito and the most important monuments and museums of Florence.

The apartment location is great, close to everything! Near palazzo Pitti,5 min to Ponte Vecchio, 10-15 to Duomo. Apartment located in the ancient historical building, it's really impressive. The rooms and the furniture are a little bit shabby, but clean and have its own charm. David was very helpful and provide us with everything we need and solved our problems (we faced some with light) promptly.
The beautiful light filled apartment was a great home for our family (2 adults, one toddler) for our two week stay in Firenze. We were in contact with the host, David, prior to the visit and he kindly equipped the apartment with a baby cot (pack'n'play) and high chair. Very accessible by foot/bus/taxi, decently equipped kitchen, very welcoming and informative host - we had everything we needed for our stay. David was also flexible for us to extend our stay by one night and check out which was very helpful.
We had an unfortunate disagreement on quoted rate vs. price paid (we paid more than the discounted rate quoted by host for our extended stay), and found David difficult to communicate with about our questions and concerns. However, had we been able to meet and discuss in person it would likely have been more easily/quickly resolved. We wouldn't hesitate to stay in the apartment again due to the issue, but would be more careful in reviewing host communication vs. actual billing.
El anfitrion llego a la hora, fue gentil, nos recomendo lugares para comer y hasta nos dejo vino.
David was right on time meeting us at the apartment and he showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. The apartment was perfect for what we needed! It has two bedrooms upstairs, and 2 large closets for storing clothes on the main floor. The location of the apartment was great!! Very short walk to Boboli Gardens, Piazza Santa Spirito and to the bridge where you can see the Ponte Vecchio. Being on the non tourist side of the bridge was nice... Less crowded and cheaper prices in restaurants. Gusta Pizza, Gusta Osterio and Gusta Panino were excellent and within .2 miles of apartment. David also gave us several recommendations on places to eat that we loved and where to grocery shop.
The apartment does have internet and there is an elevator if you don't feel like climbing the steps. Having a washing machine made packing easier knowing we could do laundry if needed.
If you plan to take day trips, it is about a mile to the train and bus station and you will pass the oldest pharmacy in the world and walk past Santa Maria Novella on the way. It is an hour and a half train ride to Rome and about an hour bus ride to Pisa.
Florence is small enough to walk everywhere you want to go. Just wonder and explore. Make sure you find your way to Michelangelo Piazzale overlook....truly amazing views of the city.
We would definitely stay in this apartment again if we are lucky enough to get back to this charming city.
I enjoyed my stay at David's apartment, which is a loft with a small bedroom & a tiny adjacent sleeping area upstairs. The kitchen & shower area are decent size & the location is only 10 min walk to all the attractions.
Everything was provided & he personally checked me in & explained everything. I was only one person, so I chose to use the pullout couch in the living room, mostly because the staircase is very narrow & didn't want make bathroom trips late at night.
David was a great host. He made us welcome by knowing who we were, responding to our queries but never being over attentive. We enjoyed the area immensely, being off the main tourist map and yet within a few minutes' walk of seemingly everywhere. The spaghetti pomodoro at Osteria Santo Spirito is just fabulous-and it's a three minute walk from the apartment.
We have stayed with David before in another appartment. We return, knowing it will be good! David is a very kind and gentle man, very helpful with information about the neighbourhood and full of good recommendations for restaurants.
The apartment used to belong to his parents and he grew up as a child here. His sister lives next door. The place gives a feeling of being at home. Best neighbourhood in Florence! Quiet at night, lively with a market around the corner, supermarket close by. Lots of restaurants at walking distance in the Oltrarno area. The museums etc at walking distance. We hope to return!
