My experience has not been very good. When I arrived, I discovered that a scaffolding has been installed in the street. It blocked the opening of the shutters. Elly told me that she was not aware of that... She proposed me another appartment at 30 min for the following day and another one at 15 min two days later. I refused as I need for profesional reason to stay near the apartment. She promised to contact me ASAP in order to propose me a reduction in the price I paid and to explore other possibilities. No news of her two weeks later.... This is quite surprising as she looked nice and receptive. Otherwise, the appartment is very well located and clean. The double bed in the bedroom is in fact two single beds that she sticks together. Forget the sofabed in the living room which is in very bad conditions. According to me, it can be used only by small kids. Only the bedroom has double glazing. This is unfortunate as the sri lankian fast food just below the appartment makes a lot of noise (I experienced Karaoke, world cup and others things). They totally stop to make some noise around midnight. It allows then to sleep well, even the windows opened. The fan provided makes the heat acceptable when it's really hot outside as I experienced in July.
Apart from having some trouble finding the place, it was great! Beautiful apartment, and great location - near to the best gelato shop it Italy, and only two bridges from Ponte Vecchio! Elly provides a copy of a map marking some great spots in Florence to eat and drink, as well as some local wine you can leave money for (good prices!!). The apartment itself is very spacious, and nearby is a supermarket and a laundromat (only about 50m away!). The only advice I would give is to turn to anti-mosquito thing on as soon as you have the windows open. Overall, highly recommended, I would stay here again.
Fantastic characterful apartment in a great location. Clean, secure, everything in working order, we really enjoyed our stay. Elly was also very prompt in responding to questions prior to arrival.
We had an extremely pleasant stay in Elly's apartment! She is a friendly, available and helping host! The apartment is ideally situated. On the other hand, it is quite dark and can get a little noisy during the night. But we did not spend that much time in the apartment anyway, since there is so much to do in Firenze! Thank you for everything Elly :)
We lived in this apartment from 21 April to 2 May. The apartment has a great location in the centre of Florence. All attractions and train station are within walking distance. The apartment is clean and comfortable. Rooms arrangement is a very good. The bedroom is on the 2nd floor. Large living room. Kitchen (with large table) is an individual space. Style of the apartment is a very beautiful. Ellie, thank you very much for your hospitality!
Amazing flat!! We stayed for a week in Elly's apartment and it was just what we need!! It's so cozy and the location is the best (very near to the train station and all the truistic places) and Elly was very kind. She recommended us a lot of nice places to eat and visit!! 100% recommended!!
