  • Marie-claires apartment was extremely comfortable and perfectly clean and is in a great central location. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely consider staying here again next time I'm in Florence. Marie-Claire was a great host and came to hand over the keys and show us around the appt when we arrived even though it was fairly late in the evening. She had also left plenty of guides/leaflets on things to do in Florence should you not be familiar with the area. I would most recommend staying here.

  • Marie-Claire met me at the apartment on time. She is a very pleasant young lady. She provided the information I needed, in English, to be able to cook, do laundry and stay in the apartment for 10 days. It was well stocked with essentials for daily living. I never had to call Marie-Claire for any problem. We loved the location, within a 5 to 10 min walk of the train station, Duomo, and other important sites in Florence. At night it was a bit noisy from the living room but died down between 10 and 11pm at night. The bedrooms are on the inside of the apartment so they are cool and quiet for sleeping, with the kitchen on the opposite side of the street. We shopped the Mercato Centrale market one street over and experienced the new hip top floor where there is a fancy food court with a cooking school, wine tasting school and many other surprises. We had a grilled steak we picked out by weight and cooked to our request. I felt like I had walked into something new in Seattle.

  • Clean, airy, strong wi-fi, no frills but good size for 4 people apartment in great
    proximity of all major points of interest in the center of Florence,
    with plenty great places to eat, including the Central Market, max 10
    mins walk from Central Train Station (even with luggage).
    The street the apartment is not ZLT street!

    However, if you are NOT from a big town or city, be prepared for the diversity of the surroundings.

    Communications with Marie-Claire were fast and efficient.
    Thank you!

  • The host was very nice but didn't explain everything about the apartment that we needed to know. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect. The neighborhood wasn't the best, a lot of men standing around a night arguing or talking loudly, they usually left by 11 pm so it wasn't a problem. I don't know if I would have been comfortable walking around alone without my husband.

  • Had a pleasurable stay here. Marie-Claire was extremely warm and welcoming. She responded when we had any questions or problems. Gave us tips on how to reach the markets and where to get the sim card (just downstairs). She even helped to call a taxi for us on our last day. The place is very convenient, feels cozy to stay in, and very close to alot of good restaurants. I loved trattoria bondi nearby. Definitely recommend staying here.
