This place is exactly as is viewed in the photos probably better. It is large clean and in a great neighbourhood. The walk to the centre is about 20mins but there are plenty of buses that can take you that way or direct to Santa Maria Novella train station. It is very quiet the windows have double glaze and the bathrooms were large for Florence from my experience. There is plenty of hot water and also a lift which was wonderful after a day of walking.
We stayed at 170a via de Serragli for around 2.5 months it's about 25 minute walk from centre of Florence, but a great wAlk, and apartment is extremely nice. I suspect this is true of many places in Florence, but wonderful restaurants were close by. also organic food shop and fresh pasta specialists!
Lovely apartment. It's in a good neighbourhood, about 20mins safe and slow walk to the city centre and 8-10mins from the cool bars in Santo Spirito. The flat is very modern finish and everything worked well.
Ulrika kindly booked the 20min, €23 taxi ride to the airport for me, which was really helpful.
Tutto perfetto, appartamento pulito e comodo. Lo consiglio a tutti!
We really enjoyed our stay in the "boboli" apartment. It was very clean and comfortable and professionally run. Ulrika provided us with lots of information before our arrival on sights and restaurants in the area and was even kind enough to call us a taxi on departure to take us to the station.
Good location away from the touristy centre but close enough to walk. Would definitely recommend.
Note: Have dinner at 35 Via Serraglia - Trattoria da Ginone.
The apartment is very nice, new and well furnished.
It is very close to the center, Ulrika has been very helpful and friendly!!
My wife and I stayed in the Lodges Le Mura, Boboli apartment while on our honeymoon. We were quite pleased with our stay. Before we arrived, Ulrika was easy to correspond with. She speaks and writes in excellent English, which is great for a couple of Canadians who speak little to no Italian. She sent me a great email with some information about some recommended sights and restaurants, as well as some of the history of Florence. The directions to the building were also very clear and useful.
Just so you understand, the Lodges Le Mura is almost like a hotel, in that there is a reception desk and several rooms that Ulrika hosts. You get a code to enter the building and a key to enter your room. The check-in process felt very professional and friendly. Ulrika did something very nice for us to acknowledge our honeymoon--I won't say it here because I don't want to set an expectation, but it was very kind and made use feel special.
I was actually very surprised at how spacious the place was--more than enough for two people. You also get access to the shared terrace area, which we sadly never did take advantage of, but it looked great.
The place looked and felt very clean.
For location, we found it pretty friendly to walk and transit. We were able to bus to and from many locations in the city without walking more than a few blocks, and we were able to walk "home" several times from the major tourist areas in under half an hour. There's also a supermarket in walking distance, and a few tasty restaurants too.
Overall, a very positive experience and a great host. Thanks Ulrika!
I like very much stay in apart of Ulrika Lervin.Very clean,beutiful and confortable place.She is very friendly and amasing person.I recommended this apartament.
Ulrika is a great host! She was on top of things all the time and even helped us with a few calls for cash claim we had to do at a gas station.
The apartment is in a 15 minute walk to the Pontevecchio, is very modern and spacious. It is also close to very good restaurants and the Boboli gardens.
We hope to come back in the near future.
Everything was as described. Ulrika is very helpful. The aparpartment comes with a parking which is extremelly important in Florence.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
