-- 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.

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.
Great apartment t in a perfect location. The property is very clean and comfortable very close to the Duomo. The owners are helpful and easy to deal with which made it a very nice stay.
Lovely place to stay in Florence. Marjan is a great host : friendly and prompt about meeting. It's a quiet and clean place well located in the heart of the city.
Excellent location. Marjan was very friendly and prompt about meeting. Very quiet and clean place.
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.
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.
We had a fantastic time in this apartment. The apartment is beautiful, clean, fully equipped and in the very centre of Florence : San Lorenzo and Medici chapel are literally on the next block to the apartment and Duomo is a 5-minute walk away only. Even with such a central location, the apartment was still quiet and peaceful at night and having a courtyard made it even better. Marjan was nice and really helpful. We had a problem with our plane so we had to check-in very late and she was still on hand to meet us, show us around the place and answer our questions. And what about Firenze ? Clearly one of the most beautiful city in the world. We want already to stay in Marjan's apartment again . HIGHLY recommended !
