Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Apartment is just as inviting as it is in the photos. Great location within walking distance to all major sites. Having the kitchen and washer was a definite bonus to the apartment. Definitely recommend!

  • We loved staying in this rooftop apartment! We came to Florence on our honeymoon and really enjoyed this little home away from home. Almost every night we wanted to stay inside to relax on the couches and drink some tea it was so comfortable! It is also in a great location close to SMN church, the Arno River, and a 15 min. walk to the Duomo. The apartment is very restful for how busy Florence can be. Highly reccommend staying here!

  • We fell in love with Marina's place immediately. The apartment is bright, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Its location was great too, at walking distance of everything but in an area still yet to conquer by the mass tourism, so you will find great shops and restaurants nearby. All in all, we couldn't be happier with our stay!

  • Marina's apartment was absolutely wonderful. A perfect mix of luxury and home comforts. The location near Santa Croce is fantastic. You are within a 10-15 minute walk of just about everywhere, but you are on a street away from crowds and tourists.

    As someone who is very hygiene conscious, i was very pleased with the cleanliness of the apartment when I arrived and found that the luxuries of the apartment (air conditioning, wifi, and the spectacular view) were all top notch. The bed, like all he furniture, was very comfortable, clean, and inviting.

    The third floor walk-up can be tough if you have heavy luggage, so just be prepared. The view of Sanata Maria Del Fiore completely makes it worth it though.

    In the vicinity of the apartment you have a supermarket, a Vodafone store, several pizzerias, great bars, and a lovely beauty salon just doors away.

    Communicating with Marina was very easy and pleasant. She is kind and very conscientious about responding to e-mails quickly and as helpfully as possible.

    I will definitely be staying at this apartment the next time I am in Florence. The only down-side to the apartment is that you won't want to leave.

  • Marina's place was flawless. It is in a great spot. Brilliantly and tastefully designed for a couple. It had everything for cooking and was a nice place to retreat from the heat and relax in the aircon away from the midday Florence heat.

    Great restaurants and markets just moments away. Try Cibreo's trattoria wing for affordable great fine food (not the upscale restaurant) and PizzaMan (just meter's away) for simple tasty pizza.

    Marina was great and thorough and thoughtful. The bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch. I'm a designer and I was totally impressed by the interior layout and feel of the apartment.

    Can't recommend enough...

  • It was one of the best stays I ever had . Marina was very kind from the very first time I contacted her.

    The apartment was really great , it was even better that in the pictures and as described. Everything was super clean, and very well equipped: air conditioning, WIFI, washing machine, etc. It is located in the Santa Croce district, in a popular neighborhood, so tourists are not as frequent as in other districts.

    The apartment is 10 minutes walking distance to the Duomo, 18 minutes to the Galleria, just 3 minutes from Santa Croce Cathedral and square, ad 5 minutes from San Ambrogio market.

    I will definitely book this apartment again !

  • Absolutely fantastic apartment. More than we could have expected. It is ideally situated next to Santa Croce square and a daily food market which is the best place to pick up breakfast and lunch. Marina is a great host too and made us feel very welcome.

    Highly recommend !!!

  • My daughter and I LOVED our stay at Marina's "cozy nest.". From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. Marina had a bottle of the local Chianti waiting for us. We walked in and saw the lovely place, filled with unique artwork ,local guidebooks, a soft bed hidden in an elegant setting, artistically drawn frescoes on the wall, and best of all, a view of the red rooftops and the Duomo out our huge window. We felt happy staying in or going out, being at Marinas is seeing Florence at its best. Grazie, Marina! We hope to come back soon! our favorite day was renting a Fiat 500 convertible and taking off to explore the gorgeous countryside. An unforgettable experience.

  • Amazing accommodation!! Marina was a great host from the moment I emailed her, always returning my emails promptly. Answering my entire question and very informative. This cozy nest is a great place to stay, excellent localization, close to supermarkets, bars, restaurants and all the main touristic places in walking distance. The apartment is full of beautiful details, everything was very clean and not to mention all the facilities provided in the place such as WIFI, washing machine, all you need to cook a meal and more. I have to mention is that there were times we did not want to venture out and explore Florence because the apartment was so comfortable; it felt just like home :) We will definitely be back again. Grazie Marina. I highly recommend staying here; you will not regret it :)

  • Nous avons passe un excellent sejour dans le duplex de Marina. C'est une personne tres accueillante et serviable. Nous avons apprecie le cadeau de bienvenue dans l'appartement [du bon vin italien]. L'appartement est super agreable, bien decore. Il est tres bien situe, proximite des commerces, du marche, des monuments historiques....L'equipement de l'appartement est parfait, il ne manque rien. La climatisation et l'internet fonctionnent bien. MILLE MERCI A MARINA.....
