We had a wonderful stay at this apartment. Ulrika is very nice and helpful. We would highly recommend it to our friends.
La estancia en el apartamento ha sido genial. La ubicación es perfecta y el apartamento supero todas las expectativas que ya eran muy elevadas. La zona fantástica, tranquila y encantadora. Ulrika siempre dispuesta a ayudar y enormemente atenta. Gracias por ser tan comprensiva ulrika
Haciendo un Eurotrip estuve con mis amigos en Florencia por dos noches y nos hospedamos en el departamento de Ulrika. Debo decir que estuvimos en más de 12 ciudades y en muy pocas tuvimos tanta comodidad y espacio como en ésta. Altamente recomendado, un apartamento moderno, muy bien ubicado y perfecto para el descanso.
Ulrika is an experienced host. She made us very welcome at our arrival. She also checked on us if we needed any other help like getting permits to enter a restricted traffic area. She wished us well on our onward journey.
The property where our group stayed was renovated only a few years ago with Ulrika having chosen the colors and interiors. We found the design tasteful. Moreover, it was located about 15 minutes walk away from Ponte Vecchio. Hence, we didn't have to use the car while in town.
Great experience here. Ulrika as a great host. Our previous host cancelled the last minute...minutes prior to us departing on the Italy!! She was very gracious and helped us out. The place is just like the pictures.
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.
