The apartment was just as listed. It was clean, comfortable and located close to buses. She provided valuable information via email about restaurants and especially recommended the Firenze card. It gave us free bus transportation and preferred entrance to the sites. It saved us many hours of wait time.
Ulrika excelente, fue muy amable y atenta, nos dio precisas indicaciones de como llegar y respondió rápidamente a todos nuestras preguntas e incluso, una vez en el departamento resolvió inmediatamente un pequeño problema que surgió con la calefacción. El departamento está muy bien y muy bien ubicado, a muy pocas cuadras del Ponte Vecchio y en un barrio muy lindo. Única desventaja es que le falta un poco de equipamiento.
The apartment was modern, clean and warm. It was great to have 2 bathrooms as we were travelling with 2 daughters (16 and 21). Although the apartment was a little out of town, there was a good bus service. The walk to the centre of Florence was only about 20 mins. There were also some nice local restaurants to eat at. Ulrika was a great host and always replied to our inquiries quickly. I would stay here again.
