The Space

Please also read the House Rules. Thank you.

-- The Neighborhood ---------------------
This apartment is in the old historic center of Florence, in the San Lorenzo neighborhood, and situated within a short walk to famous sites such as the Duomo (main cathedral of Florence), Ponte Vecchio, Uffizzi museum, Galleria d'Accademia (where the original statue of David is located), and many more.

The San Lorenzo historic neighborhood where the Medici, once rulers of Tuscany resided, also contains many sites including the palace of Medici Ricardi, the famous Mercato Centrale or Mercato San Lorenzo (the fresh food and Tuscan products market). Also the famous leather and gifts market is right around the corner.
In the same street, via Faenza there are also several restaurants, cafés, ice-cream shops, and a supermarket.

The main bus/train station, Santa Maria Novella, is only a 5-minute walk from this apartment; making it very convenient for a day trip to a village or other towns.

-- The Apartment ---------------------
Decorated in a mix of contemporary and Florentine style. It features one bedroom with a double bed, a large living room and dining room joined as one large space with a comfortable large futon in the living room, a full bathroom with shower, and a kitchenette with many appliances you may need for a comfortable stay.

The apartment is on the ground level. So, there is no need to climb up stairs. Also, it is situated on the back side of the building and the windows don't open up to street, so you can enjoy a good night sleep while being in the middle of everything. The small back yard adds another nice feature.

There is also a fee-based parking garage less than 200 m. (600 ft.) from the apartment. So, despite being located in a traffic limited zone, which is how it is in the historic center, access by car is also convenient.

Note: In June 2009 Via Faenza stone re-pavement was finished, as a project to facilitate a pedestrian-only passage between the train station and the Duomo.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed at Marjan's apartment with the balcony. It was a really good experience. Super convenient and we would give thumbs up for it being on the first floor since we never succeeded in traveling light. We contacted her last minute but it had turned out to be one of our best airbnb experience. Marjan was very attentive to whatever that we needed. We would stay there again when we are in Florence next time. Thanks Marjan!!!

  • I had an amazing stay. The location and apartment were both perfect. I was surprised that that kitchen had the basic spices for cooking. Marjan was also easy to contact if there were any questions. The ease of this apartment definitely made my stay in Florence better.

  • What a lovely apartment! Marjan obviously has taken great care to make it a warm, comfortable and inviting place to stay. All of the amenities were either new or well maintained......and spotless! There were only two of us staying there but it certainly could have accommodated up to four with the futon in the living room. An added bonus to this apartment was the wonderful garden off the kitchen, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The location of the apartment was perfect for taking in the essence of Florence. Thanks, Marjan, for making our stay in Florence even more special.

  • Marjan's apartment is a lovely place to stay when in Florence: clean, cozy, and near everything. Great for 1 or 2 people. Marjan is a wonderful host too. She is friendly and prompt about meeting you. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a quiet place to relax in between seeing the sights.

  • Great place to stay in Florence, the appartment is very well located between the station and the iconic places of Florence. Having the mercato centrale just behind the building is also a fantastic opportunity to buy great products for cooking. In addition to that, it was really easy to communicate with Marjan and to meet with her.

  • Marjan은 약속한 시간에 집에서 기다리고 있었다 그리고 집에 대해서 친절히 설명해 주었다.
    집은 매우 깨끗했고, 모든 것이 잘 구비되어 있다.
    산타마리아노벨라 역과 매우 가깝고 에어컨은 2개이다.
    다음에 피렌체를 여행한다면 나는 이 집을 또 선택할 것이다.

  • Well located, clean and well equipped. Local eateries within minutes. Plus shops and excellent bakery. Mid way between Cathedral and station. Just two of us so good size would be a bit cramped for a bigger party. There is a back yard to sit out but it is surrounded by tall walls so no sunshine. Bedroom space a bit tight. Double bed is against a wall so difficult to get in and out.

    Response from Marjan:

    It was nice having Charles and his wife as guest.
    As for the size of the apartment, it has been clearly mentioned in the description and the apartment's plan. It's not a big apartment but I have got many group of 4 guests and they all said that the size was perfect for them and they enjoyed their stay. Also the bed is against wall from one side but it is exactly as it is shown i the picture.
    Thank you
