On the third floor, very bright and airy, facing the the roof of typical Florentine building and the Cupola of San Lorenzo church.
A little kitchen, new and fully equipped, new bathroom, a leaving room with a double sofa bed, a bedroom with two single bed or a king bed, is a perfect place for your short stay up to four people, or for a long holiday for one or two people.

Excellent apartment and great host. Bathroom is on the small side for 4 people but we only had 4 nights there and it wasn't an issue. Highly recommend!
Gabriele's apartment is in a very good location, close to everything. Gabriele is a nice young man, very professional, and he responded promptly to our requests. The apartment is small, has one king bed and one couch that turns into a bed.
I would suggest a few hangers in the bathroom and some more towels. I would stay again in his apartment.
I have had the pleasure of staying in Gabriele's flat twice. It is a fanastic location when staying in Florence. It's only a 5 minute walk from the train station. At the doorstep of the apartment you'll find the San Lorenzo market vendors (loads of fun shopping) and pretty decent restaurants. A 3 minute walk leads you to the Basilica of San Lorenzo with the Duomo a mere 2 minutes from that. It is super central without that touristy cheesy feel. The apartment itself is lovely. Yes there are a few flights but even my elderly mother made it up easily everyday and Gabriele is very helpful with the luggage. I found the beds to be comfortable and the apartment well equipped and clean. On our second visit my sister stayed on the living room pull-out and loved it. I travel quite a bit and have used airbnb extensively. Gabriele is a fantastic host. He is on-time, responsive and incredibly clean.
Un appartamento delizioso____piacevole e luminoso!!! siamo state benissimo__lo consiglio vivamente e ci tornerei se avrò la fortuna di visitare di nuovo Firenze!
Il soggiorno è stato molto piacevole! Appartamento grazioso e molto, molto comodo poichè situato in zona centrale e prezzo altrettanto ragionevole. Inoltre grande disponibilità da parte di (website hidden) dovessi tornare a Firenze soggiornerei di nuovo qui volentieri.
Apartment was clean and had a good location near to the city's attractions. It was slightly far to walk from the train station while dragging luggage. Carrying luggage up the many flights of stairs wasn't easy as well. However, Gabriele was a good host and that improved our experience of the apartment.
The apartment itself was slightly cramped for 4 people but there is more than enough space for 2 people.
Lovely apartment, very clean, beautifully situated in the heart of Florence, close to the galleries. Bed was a little uncomfortable over time, but our child found the couch bed very comfy.
We stayed 2 nights in Gabriele's apt in late Oct. 2013. We chose it for its stellar location near many of the city's attractions. Indeed, it was literally around the corner from the Mercato Centrale, where it was convenient to buy items for breakfast, and the outdoor markets. And quite close to the Duomo, San Marco Museum, etc. (BTW, the dome shown in the pics showing the view from the window is not the Duomo, as some posters have claimed.) Gabriele met us as we got out of the taxi and gave great advice for places to eat & see. He also called a taxi for us the morning we left to get to the airport, and was immediately responsive to any needs/questions we had. The apt. itself is fine; if you're planning on using the kitchen to prepare your own meals, it's pretty barebones. The place is suited for a simple breakfast and snacks; i'd say enjoy real meals in any of the 1000 trattorias/osterias/etc in the city. The bathroom shower is a little odd; it's not self-contained; water gets everywhere and then you use a squeegee to push the water to a corner drain afterwards; no huge deal. If you're a light or late sleeper, you might want earplugs. The many shopkeepers in the small shops lining the street just below open their metal shutters early in the morning & it's a bit loud, as are the many scooters/motorcycles that park in the narrow street outside. The price is quite fair for its cleanliness and location, and again, Gabriele is a great host. We'd give it a 4 1/2 star rating if the site allowed. (Steve/Sharon, Pittsburgh, PA, USA)
We really enjoyed our stay at Gabriele's apartment so close to central Florence. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. We appreciated Gabriele's courtesy and promptness when we arrived and helpful recommendations.
Gabriele's apartment was perfect for us. Great location, very clean and Practical. He was very easy to communicate with and on time and professional! We enjoyed our stay and would recommend others to do the same!
