  • 4 of us spent the Easter holiday at this flat. We couldn't have asked (email hidden) to stay! The flat was comfortable, charming, full of character, clean and large, but above all the location was just perfect. We walked everywhere from the flat. There are also lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Olivia was very helpful and the check in process was quick and smooth. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay there again! Grazie Olivia!

  • Our stay in Olivia's apartment couldn't have been better. We were two couples visiting our sons studying abroad in Florence. The apartment location was perfect - centrally located to everything. And the aparment itself was clean and roomy - exactly as the pictures depict. Olivia is the perfect hostess - helpful, friendly and accessible. She even took us on a tour of her family's winery - the wine was excellent. We will definitely return to this apartment if we return to Florence. Thank you Olivia!!!

  • L'appartamento è bellissimo, tre ampie stanze, due bagni, salotti, cucina e terrazza. A due passi da santa croce, è arredato con buon gusto. Olivia, la host, è stata molto gentile, carina e disponibile! Consigliato!

  • 1) Olivia was very friendly, punctual and reacted promptly to any requests.

    2) Appartment and location fit the descrition.

    3) However, the bathrooms are worn down and thus hard to keep as clean and tidy as one would like.

  • Muy buena ubicación ,pero en contra muchos escalones a subir y dormitorios chicos e incómodos además de una terraza imposible de usar por la cantidad de palomas que todo lo ensucian

  • Out of all the apartments we've stayed in with Airbnb, this was our favourite. Very reasonably priced for central Florence (and it is very central), with plenty of space to accommodate the six of us. The apartment is amazing, with really cool decor, and has everything you could possibly need. Check in couldn't have been easier. Would readily recommend and stay again.

  • Ho prenotato l'appartamento per una settimana in agosto e lo consiglio vivamente a tutti quelli che vogliono soggiornare a Firenze. Olivia è stata molto gentile : ci ha lasciato l'appartamento prima del previsto e ci ha pazientemente aspettato quando il nostro treno ha avuto un ritardo di due ore. In più, ci è stata di grande aiuto nel recuperare un bagaglio che avevamo dimenticato sul treno.
    Quest'appartamento è molto comodo, bello e spazioso (eravamo in sei a soggiornarvi) e sopratutto è situato nel centro della città : si può andare a piedi ovunque o noleggiare biciclette alla Piazza Santa Croce. L'unico problema è che "the shower head" della vasca non funzionava quindi si poteva usare solo la doccia.

    Cet appartement est spacieux, bien décoré et confortable. Il se trouve en plein centre de Florence et il n'y a nullement besoin de prendre le bus pour se rendre aux divers musées et églises. Il est possible de louer des vélos sur la place Santa Croce, ce qui peut s'avérer fort utile pour visiter la ville en long, en large et en travers durant des heures entières. En un mot : je recommande vivement cet appartement ! De plus, je ne peux que remercier Olivia, qui nous a apporté son aide concernant une sacoche oublié dans le train, et qui a accepté de venir nous remettre les clefs de l'appartement plus tôt que prévu et qui nous a finalement attendu car notre train a eu du retard.

    This lovely flat is spacious, quiet and well decorated, the location is perfect. If I ever go back to Florence, I would definitely stay there again ! In one word : it (email hidden) to stay. Moreover, Olivia is very nice and helpful.

  • This apartment were very well-located within easy walking distance of most places to visit in central Florence as well as mini-markets, and restaurants only a couple of meters down the street and a proper supermarket on the next street.
    The host, Olivia, was easy to get in touch with, responded quickly to our questions and easy to communicate with.

    Unfortunately the apartment itself had some minor flaws:
    - The rooftop terrace was infested with pidgeons and pidgeon-droppings, which made it unusable
    - The door from the kitchen to the terrace could not be opened, resulting in the kitchen becoming almost unbearable hot while cooking
    - The sheets were old and worn-out. When we accidentally ripped one of them while sleeping, the owner demanded us to pay 20 euros for that one. It could hardly have cost more than 5 when they bought it 5 years ago. The situation were not made better by the fact that we had been asked not to use any extra sheets, as the wouldn't have time to wash them before the next customers arrived.
    - The shower in one of the bathrooms did not work properly.Only the bathtubs could be used.

  • trip in Firenze for the wedding of my best friends. The flat was nice, quiet and the localisation is very good: 10 minutes to go to the historique center and all the famous places of Firenze.
    Olivia was very disponible even if our arrival flight was late.
    It was easy and usefull to stay in this flat with a group of 6 persons: space, nice terrasse, two bathroom, tree nice rooms with double bed.

  • This apartment was our oasis in Florence, very peaceful and restorative. Our group of 5 travellers ranged in age from 3 to 66 years old, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is 3 blocks from Chiesa Santa Croce, in a neighbourhood with restaurants, bars, cafes and supermarket nearby. We also went to the Saint Ambriogio market which was amazing, and the secondhand market in Locanda dei Ciompi was really interesting.
    It is easy to walk around Florence from here, things were a lot closer that we thought.
    The apartment is on the top floor of a quiet building, there are a lot of stairs, but in Italy that is to be expected. The architectural qualities of the apartment are really beautiful, I think that the photos do not do it justice!
    The open plan lounge and dining look onto the roof terrace, we ate out on the terrace quite a bit, and it was lovely to have some outdoor space. There is a lot of natural light all through the apartment, a few rooms have skylights and mezzanines, and the two bathrooms were filled with light.
    Between two bedrooms is a big walk in wardrobe, and the second living area joins onto the main bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped, it is a real working kitchen with many quality appliances, items of cookware and pantry staples. We really enjoyed cooking here.
    Olivia was great at check in, she let us know where everything was in the apartment and also in the neighbourhood. We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend it to other travellers.
