The apartment is located just on a side of Basilica di San Lorenzo (the most central historic center location) in the middle of multicolor market.

Enjoy the convenience of a location that is second to none when it comes to views and acessibility to the sites.
The apartment building is a 14th-century building set in via del Canto de' Nelli. In this area you can find what may be the most important market of the city. Just walk around searching for clothing, articles in leather, souvenirs, etc.
The apartment was very close to the train station and a short walk to the Duomo. When my plans got changed and I arrived earlier than expected, Elena arranged for a friend to let me in. I really appreciated it as I was able to go sightseeing much sooner and leave my things in the apartment. The apartment itself is a studio as the pictures described, very clean with a really nice bathroom. She had a nice printed guide left in the apartment with suggestions on where to go, what to eat, and other local information. It was really helpful.
Very recommended for location and cleaningness.
The location is perfect!!! A couple minutes walking distance to the grocery, centralo market, duomo, museums and many other shopping shops.
The place looks exactly as in the photos and very clean. The sofa bed was average, however it was very clean. The kitchen is fully equipped with basic kitchenware etc; and of course very clean too. The bathroom was very functional: I was able to placed all my toileteries and make up products in the bathroom.
Elena and Valerio live just next door and very helpful. I asked if they had any wine glasses and they would response quickly and handed me the wine glasses.
Check out time is 11am and my train was 9pm. I asked if I could leave mu luggage and pick it up at 7pm. The are more than happy to help.
The internet connection was very fast.
The downsides are: the smell at the apartment entrance, but it doesn't really enter the apartment. Noise level from street can be reduced by having the aircon on or an earplug.
I will stay here every time I visit Florence. The apartment is perfect for two people and looks exactly as it is pictured. This location allowed a 3 minute walk to the duomo and is close to everything. Elena was a fantastic host and it was perfect having her next door for tips. I would recommend this stay to anyone!
Beautiful location. Excellent view of the Duomo from the window. The apartment itself is simple and lovely with nice finishes throughout. The bathroom was also very nice, again with high quality finishes. The pullout sofa bed was comfortable.
Our host was kind to help with the bags and give many suggestions for the area.
The only downside is the considerable noise. We remedied that by closing the windows/shutters and running the fan over the kitchen stove. That supplied some 'white noise' and allowed us to sleep before the street noise let up about 2 am.
All in all a good stay and a great location to tour Florence.
We had an awesome experience in Florence which was made even better by staying at Elena's accommodation. Close to everything and the markets right at the front was a bonus. Elena's advice for restaurants was great too. Her partner helped us up the stairs with our luggage which was good.
Great location. V average studio nothing personable to it. Shame as it has huge potential. It's essentially a room and a bathroom with a sofa bed which isn't ideal for more than two nights. It's noisy at night but the buzz of Florence is wonderful. Walking distance to bus and train.
We were nicely met by a friend to Elena at the apartment and it. all worked out great!!
To our furher question Elena answerd straight away and was very helpfull!
The apartment is as described !
Very well situated and with a lovely wiew!
The bedsofa was very comfortable !
You might need earplugs at night, you are right in the hart off the city.

About the Host, Elena
Il mio motto è "feel free". Ciò descrive la mia attitudine anche verso gli ospiti. E' per questo che non vi sono regole particolari nell'appartamento, eccetto il normale rispetto per lo stato dei luoghi che ho appena finito di restaurare con molta cura. Mi piace tanto viaggiare e non prediligo le stanze di albergo: preferisco immergermi nella realtà locale ed autentica dei luoghi. La volontà è quella di offrire la possibilità, a chi come me ama sfuggire all'asetticità di un hotel, di vivere come a casa in una delle zone più "cool" della città, con la vista di un panorama monumentale che vi toglierà il respiro, senza però rinunciare ad ogni tipo di confort.
