I can't think of a better location in Florence, where a tourist would like to stay. Keep in mind that it is a former art studio so there are no windows, but given the location it's not a big deal.
This a gem in the middle of Florence, near a fantastic cafe (Ditta Artigianale). The location is just fantastic. Roberto is flawless. The room at the back is very quiet and lets you get a good rest. The balcony bed is closer to the street and can get a little noisy. The shower leaks a little, but that is not a big deal.
I can't fault the experience, our host was waiting to greet us as we arrived, the apartment has true artisian character, it is very spacious and perfectly located. There's not much natural light in the apartment, but that was expected as it is an art gallery, if anything the low lighting adds to the experience. Very convenient for the less nimble as there are no steps at all-it is in a ground floor apartment. highly recommend.
A Florence, ville hors du commun remplie de chefs d'oeuvre, nous avons apprécié l'accueil calme et serein de Roberto. Son logement est propre, spacieux, chaleureux et très joli ! De plus situé dans une rue très calme à deux pas de quartiers animés. En conclusion, nous recommandons ce lieu.
This BnB was great and exactly as described. It was central to all the main attractions in Florence and we were able to walk to almost any sight. The apartment was very well kept and clean. It was very spacious and the kitchen was stocked with all basics and utensils. Roberto was very accommodating to our needs and schedule. He was quick to response to our questions and concerns and I would recommend this place to anybody. 10/10 would stay again.
Roberto a été un hôte sympathique et disponible. Il a particulièrement facilité notre installation en s'adaptant à notre horaire d'arrivée. L'appartement était propre, fonctionnel, plus grand que prévu mais manque de luminosité. La rue est calme et le quartier est très sympa. Je recommande cette adresse à tous ceux qui sont de passage à Florence.
Roberto was a very fine host! He picked us up at the parking lot and took us to the apartment. The apartment is his former art gallery that he has converted to a unique and great living space. The apartment was roomy, clean and well outfitted. The location was incredible; couldn't be better. Steps to the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Vecchio and dozens of restaurants.
