We had a wonderful stay at Ulrika's place.
Everything was clean and tidy, great space, well equipped, Lovely feeling in the apt. and Ulrika was super helpful and friendly!
The buses were easy to get to just a minute down the road, and you had options for a car as there is parking! Ulrika was flexible with the times which was so helpful!
I highly recommend staying here.
We loved staying in this apartment a lot! Ulrica is a great host. Very attentive to the guests and intelligent. We've got an excellent guidance from Ulrica how to spend time in Florence before the arrival. The apartment located just in the central part of the city. Very clean. Modern laconic design, lovely balcony. Very comfartable. Thank you, Ulrica!
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment, located in a building of other rented apartments.
Ulrika was very kind and flexible. She helped us with understanding the ZTL constraints and with car parking.
The apartment was very nice, modern and clean. The bedrooms are large and well furnished. We also enjoyed the shared terrace on the floor below.
The apartment is in a nice quiet zone, situated only 10 minutes (by foot) from the Arno river and the center (Ponte Vecchio...).
The apartment is very clean and spacious! Although there is no living room and NO internet in the apartment ( which was the most disappointing part). You had to go to the reception to get any network! We had some issues with the air conditioning on the first night but Ulrika resolved them the next day! It is a good 20 mins walk from the river front. Overall experience was average.
It was a wonderful stay at "Santo Spirito"! We loved the location, being near to Boboli Gardens and being away from the beaten track. The neighborhood has its own vibe and we get a glimpse of the daily life in Florence. If you drive, the apartment has parking space(!), a true gem in this city!
The apartment was wonderful, tastefully appointed, cosy, charming and modern. The common areas are a great addition.
Ulrika was a wonderful host, extremely helpful and accommodative. My family wants to come back and stay at the same apartment because of her personal touch. She blends personal warmth with professionalism.
Thank you for a wonderful time Ulrika. (Her personal recommendations are a must!)
We stayed 6 nights at Ulrika's apt. Santo Spirito.
It was absolutely wonderful! Very clean, very modern. Nice small kitchen area with dining table. We had breakfast on the little balcony with views to the old city wall and Tuscan hills.
The location of the apt. is great. Near the Porta Romana, ca. 10 minute walk to Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio. Great restaurants and shops!
For a small fee we could park our car in the courtyard right at the apt.
Ulrika is very nice and helpful. She greeted us when we arrived, answered all our questions patiently and provided us with an information sheet about the apt./area etc.
When we contacted her she replied very quickly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay there very much! If we are visiting Florence again we would definitely want to stay at this apt. !
Ulrika is very nice and helpful. The apartment is just awesome: clean, convenient and close to the city's center. We enjoyed our time in Florence for 100%.
