All as described! Marie-Claire ' apartment was lovely and strategic. It was close to the key sites of Florence. We also got a detailed tour of the apartment and all the amenities from her sister. All and all a great experience!
Marie-Claire was very responsive to our message. At our arrival, her baby was crying to leave so she could just provide a quick show of the apartment but it's fine since everything was provided.
The place is perfect for four people and we enjoyed our stay.
Location is perfect and just 5-10 minutes walk and all sights are nearby.
The only small drawback is the toilet is too close to the shower.
Marie-Claire was a perfect host! She welcomed me and gave me the tour of the apartment and also gave information and instructions of how to get around, get groceries etc. The apartment is great; clean, in great location, and with all the space you will need. The room with the double bed has a wonderful skylight! The neighbourhood was fine, sometimes it got a bit loud but the living room window is soundproof and makes a huge difference. Thanks Marie-Claire, our stay at your apartment was awesome!
Really great apartment in the centre of Florence. The pictures are very accurate, and I was surprised by how big the apartment actually was. It was incredibly clean and tidy, and both check in and check out were seamless.
In terms of location, it was right beside the bustling central market, a 5-10 min walk from both the Duomo and SMN train station, and 15 mins to the Uffizi gallery.
I've read other reviews that talk about the hot water in the shower coming and going, however this wasn't really an issue for us.
Overall, very pleased with this apartment. It was both lovely and strategic!
Marie-Claire was a great host who was very responsive. We had a slight issue with the toilet when we first arrived but she was quick to fix that within a few hours of our arrival. The apartment located very close to many of the major tourist points in Florence and as many others have mentioned it is a short walk from the train station. The only thing I would caution people is the apartment is immediately located near many non-Italian restaurants and corner stores so if you are looking for an experience of living within the locals this might not be the best choice for you.
Very nice apartment in the center of Florence, just next to the Mercato Centrale. The apartment is very well located and very quiet (the rooms do not face the street). Very good choice!
A centrally located, spacious apartment with enough space for 4-5 people. Marie Claire was really kind and waited for us at the appartment as we arrived late due to traffic on the way from Bologne to Florence. A big thanks for that.
Rooms, bathroom and kitchen were super clean. At a distance of 10 mins from Duomo and 20mins from Uffizi, very close to Mercato Centrale, best place to have your breakfast. Surrounded by fantastic restaurants like Za-Za. Would love to stay there again....undoubtedly recommended!!
