We had a wonderful time, and very much enjoyed our stay at the Uffizi Apartment. The location was perfect - steps from the Uffizi museum and Piazza della Signoria, and walking distance to just about everything else in central Florence. It was very quiet in the area, and on the few occasions that we heard noise from the street closing the windows was all that was required to completely block the sound.
Manuel was very helpful when we arrived. He directed us to a local grocery store, pointers to some local restaurants, gave great instructions on all the appliances and details of the apartment, and provided a map to help us get around Florence. The apartment was clean and neat, and we enjoyed our time there. We found a wonderful little restaurant - Trattoria Roberto - just around the corner on Via de Leoni.
I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone looking for a conveniently located apartment in Florence.
Fantastic central location perfect for a city break.
Great location, a stone's throw from the Uffizi gallery and the Piazza della Signoria. Attentive and professional hosts. Manuel is very friendly, and his assistant, Carmen, is gorgeous. I would definitely recommend this apartment. I only wish the cancellation policy were less strict.
The place was great, it was spacious, clean, and had a great location. I am only giving it a low rating due to an unresolved conflict with the host.
Me and my friends stayed in Manuel's place. Overall experience was very good!
