The location is fabulous and the apartment is fully-equipped and a good size for two people. It's definitely worth considering if you're looking for city centre accommodation at a good price!
The apartment consists of a single large room with double windows (there is a pull-out sofa that's perfect for two persons and an arm-chair which becomes a single bed), kitchennette( washing machine) and bathroom with shower. Air conditioning, view of Duomo, the second floor with a lift. Nice furnished, very bright.
Not far from the Santa María del Fiore Cathedral (Duomo) and a short walk from all of the famous Duomo sights. It’s a great location from which to explore. Museams, typical and international restaurants, bars, stores, farmacy, shops, landmat: everything is just in some steps!
Inside, the apartment is spacious and functional with everything one needs to make his stay comfortable.
Train-station Santa Maria Novella and a central bus station are in 7 minutes by feet.
This is an extremely well located apartment in the heart of the city, close to everything. Since we stayed during winter, it did take a day or two to full heat up the apartment after which there was no issue with the heat. Also because the location is so central it did get noisy at night. Overall we had a good stay in the apartment.
Very nice apartment in the centre! Good for 1-2 people. Elevator is a good thing)
Yana's place is in a wonderful location, just steps away from Piazza Duomo. Out of the 5 AirBnBs we stayed at during our trip to Italy, hers was one of our favorites. The apartment itself is a studio, with the futon, table, kitchen, washer, etc. all located in the same room. The bathroom is in the hallway. Both the bathroom and the living area have their own heaters, so we were very warm and comfortable during our stay.
The studio is smartly designed, where the kitchen and washer were hidden behind cabinets, so they were able to be hidden from view. Everything was very clean, and we appreciated having basic kitchen necessities for cooking (although we never used them - too much good food in Florence!). There was also a drying rack for our clothes, which we utilized when we did a load of laundry. A iPod player allowed us to play music for a nice evening of unwinding after all the sight-seeing.
We didn't get to meet with Yana herself, but communication with her was easy and great. She had her friend show us the place, and he was very thorough. A few things to note:
- Towels were provided, but bring your own hand soap since none was provided
- Hot water worked great, but if you are prone to showers longer than 10min, the next person may want to wait 10-15min before showering so no one is left with cold water
- WiFi did not have any issues
- It can get a little noisy at night since it is so very close to where all the action is. It did not bother us, but if you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring earplugs
- Grocery store is only a few minutes away in case you need to stock up on essentials
If we ever find ourselves in Florence again, we will no doubt be choosing Yana's place to stay at again! Grazie!
We had a great time at Yana's apartment! Definitely recommend this place.
El apartamento tiene una ubicación inmejorable! Yana fue muy amable y Teo también, y muy simpático!! Hemos pasado unos días muy a gusto allí. Nos hemos sentido como en casa y nos ha encantado disfrutar de la bella Florencia en "nuestra casita". Hemos tenido todo lo que necesitábamos. Totalmente recomendable!!! Sin duda, volveríamos a alojarnos allí!
The location of apartment is incredible and centrally located and easily to get around to different scenic spots. The facilities and amenities are also great and all make you feel comfortable. The only downside of the apartment would be a bit noisy during the night time as it is close to duomo and many people would pass by but it would be definitely safe if back home late at the same time. The overall experience was still good!:)
