We very much enjoyed staying at Ulrika's listing in Florence. The location was excellent and it was very easy to walk to the main sights and the train station. Grocery stores were also right nearby. Ulrika was a very helpful host and even helped us print out our Uffizi tickets, which was very helpful since we otherwise would have had no access to a printer. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Very nice host. She had written down everything we needed to know even weeks before our arrival.
It is a clean place. It is away from but yet at a walking distance to all the touristic attractions. Try walking.
You can enjoy the terrace as well.
The only catch was the mosquitos. Although Ulrika has a couple of solutions, I recommend buying a raid from the nearby markets.
Ulrika was awesome and the apartment was perfect! Very clean and quiet and in a good location. We walked to Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo with a stroller. We were even surprised with a view of the Duomo from the balcony! There is also a gated parking area next to the building that we used. The apartment is just inside the ZTL, but Ulrika took care of the permit for us. This is really a great place to stay. Thank you!
The appartment "Il Duomo" was lovely. Everything was perfect and very clean. Our host was very friendly and helpful. I recommand it!
Ulrika's place is very beautiful, clean and location is great, so close to the centre of the city! The rooms are elegantly decorated and airy, and there is a beautiful terrace in the common area, where we spent our happy hours:).
Ulrika is a great host, very nice, helpful and patient with her guests. I strongly recommend Ulrika's place, and would definitely choose it for my next stay in Florence:).
Lodges Le Mura is a gem within the area on the other side of ponte vecchio, a good escape from the hustle and bustle in town. It is really spacious and tidy and new and most importantly it has air conditioning which me and my family together 5 people enjoyed. Buses like 11, 36, 37 would take you to most of the places in Florence and most importantly to Firenze SMN station. Being secluded, the catch is walking from city centre back would take at least 25 mins, so for those with tired legs after dinner, you might not be a fan for a stroll. All in all, Urika has been really really helpful and I couldn't asked for a better host.
