About This Listing
Very nice studio with all the comforts ideal for 2 people. It is located on the 3rd floor with elevator, has a double bed and a sofa, that in case of necessity can sleep a 3th person. The apartment is elegantly finished and the enviable location at 20 meters from the Ponte Vecchio, the center of gravity of all the main monuments of great artistic interest. Air conditioning, wi-fi, a big tv, there is a kitchen corner with coffee machine, fridge, induction hob for cooking and microwave oven. A few meters from the house, there is a good supermarket. When you will arrive, I will tell you where the best places to eat a fabulous panino, pizza, good pasta, tipic restaurant and a fabulous ice cream, or another place of your interest. My concern is that you will spend a happy time in Florence. I recommend reading the reviews. Remember you are welcome

Alberto told us he would be out of town when we arrived, so he put us in touch with his friend, Laura, who took care of the apartment while he was gone. She was able to answer all our questions through email. She told us she wouldn't be available to meet us at the time we were arriving, so she left the key with the shop owner right next to the apartment. It worked out perfectly. The key to get into the actual apartment took a little to get used to, but we were able to figure it out. The apartment itself was a good space for two people. And the location was great! Less than a 5 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio bridge or the Boboli gardens. When we left we gave the key back to the same shop owner and there is a taxi stand right at the corner. We had a great time while staying in Florence and definitely want to come back. I would definitely stay here again.
We lived in Alberto's apartment for 3 days and had a wonderful time there! Location is really perfect! Ponte Veccio and all central well known places are realy close! An apartment is the same as it looks on photos, really perfect! We didn't have problems with hot water, so perhaps they were fixed or we didn't spend a lot of time taking shower. We didn't meet Alberto personally but he and his friend were in touch all the time and gave us a lot of helpful instructions. It's really easy to get to the apartment and to find everything you want. Really perfect place! Alberto and Laura, thank you so much for your assiatance! We highly recommend your apartment for those who want to enjoy Florence, like comfort and don't want to waste their time on transport! Thank you once more, guys!
The apartment was in the perfect location, close to Ponte Veccio. A nice building. Laura was very communicative and easy to work with on getting us keys from the man in the shop outside.
Hot water doesn't last very long, so quick showers and you'll be fine.
It was a great place. We would gladly stay longer. Thank you for everything ... We'll come again:)
My husband and I stayed at this apartments for 6 nights in April.
We were warmly received by Laura's boyfriend because Alberto was not in the country and sadly Laura had been confined to bed with a spinal injury for over a month! I hope she gets well soon.
I have mixed feelings about my experience here. First the good points;
The location is perfect! So close to the Ponte Vecchio bridge, you could walk to all the major sites.
The apartments itself is nicely decorated and spacious enough for two people; not too small at all.
Alberto, although not in the country was easily contactable via email and air bnb for any issues and was quick to respond.
Unfortunately we had a few issues.
The heating was not working very well. But since the temperature never dropped below 7c this wasn't much of an issue.
The wifi did not work until the 5th day of our stay. Laura informed me that it was a fault with the phone company.
The exhaust in the bathroom did not work either.
What I found most inconvenient though was the leaking shower cubicle that would flood the toilet every time we took a shower. (By the way, we found the hot water was perfectly enough for two people to shower).
Alberto's father came over and took a look at the leak but it could not be fixed in a hurry.
Anyway, I had to be pretty insistent with Laura to get some extra bath mats to soak up the flood water on the 2nd day of our stay because she wanted me to wait till the 3rd day for it to be delivered.
However, Alberto was kind enough to offer us a refund worth about 20% of our total bill. That was nice of him.
we were happy to welcome you! we were very present in your needs, but if I have to point out a few things I would have to say:
-the heating worked perfectly, probably as I have also written to the message and checked twice by my father, have not set up the remote control.
- bathroom exhaust occurred twice successfully ever since my father.
-Laura in 1 hour quickly found the solution to your discomfort for bath mats are not included in the provision described on airbnb.
-wifi problem throughout the area, and for this I was refunded some of the money.
- your request for additional pillows total 4, not described by airbnb, but the same refunded by us to avoid problems.
Board of leggetre carefully details of supply of apartments before renting, or at least to require extra supplies before arriving!
spent a good day, we were happy to settle within the limits of our ability
