About this listing

The apartment, located on the second floor of an ancient palace of 1500, is composed of: living room with two single sofa beds and bedroom with double bed in the loft, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with a shower. Two beautiful windows overlooking the famous "Loggia del pesce" in Piazza dei Ciompi and the Florentine hills. The apartment has air conditioning, heating, Wi-Fi.
The Apartment is next to "Ciompi Studio".
Bed linens and towels are provided.
The apartment's location is definitely unique, not only it allows you to reach walking Piazza Santa Croce with its Basilica in 5 minutes, Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and the famous Uffizi Gallery in 10 minutes, but it also offers the opportunity to live in one of the most characteristic areas of Florence.
In Piazza dei Ciompi, where the apartment is located, there is the old "flea market" that has always been a destination for those who want to relive the flavors of the past. You can find old furniture, books, records, jewelry, lamps, old photos and postcards of the past. Also in the nearby Piazza Ghiberti (only 3 minutes walk) you can go shopping in the popular market of Sant'Ambrogio: where there are open stalls of fruit and vegetables, inside there is shoals of fresh meat and fish, cheese and food of all kinds. A small restaurant allows you to eat cheaply.
The apartment is easily accessible by public transport (15/20 minutes from Santa Maria Novella Station) and is located at the very beginning of the restricted traffic zone but you can park in a pubblic pay parking just 200 meters away.
Please notice that check-in after 20.30 are not recommended (I have to ask someone to bring you the keys), after 21.30 are not accepted.
Please be respectful with the apartment.
Leave the apartment as you found it: take out the rubbish and put dishes, cutlery and pans where they belong.
Just act like you'd do in your own house (don't leave the windows opened when air conditioned or heating is on, walking with shoes on sofas, leave everything dirty...) :)
Until now I had only good experiences so I'm motivated to offer the best service I can, and this is thanks to people who behaves great!
The apartment was great and exactly as described. Not sure if it said it came with a hair dryer, but it was a pleasant surprise to see that there was one provided since we'd forgotten ours. One of the best gelato places is fantastically (and dangerously!) practically next door ~ to the right when you walk out the front door. The 60 steps to and from the apt., will make the gelato calories melt right off! Quick laundry tip ~ just pop all of your clothes from the day all in the washer each night before going to bed and put on the drying rack....all will be dry by the morning! The large windows held spectacular views each night as well. Oh, and there is a great outdoor market with fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and great leather souvenirs just to the left and down the block from the apt. I think you turn right at the first street you come to and then a first left after that. You'll find it. We loved our time in Florence and hope to return soon!
The apartment is beautiful and in the center. But Water heater is broken. And Closestool upper part is installation puts worn good place, but suggest you install those who hang towel and so on to hang lever .
The kitchen is very satisfied.
Excellent location in Firenze for our family of four. Comfortable accommodations, nice kitchen and bathroom space, convenient to a market, bus stop, and restaurants. Air conditioning was appreciated greatly.
Some noise from the street in the evening, apartment is on upper floors that require climbing approx 60 steps, but all was manageable.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 days we spent in this apartment. The location is perfect - we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment is spacious and clean with everything we needed. Matteo was friendly and explained all we needed to know and was available for questions or problems - we had an issue with the hot water and Matteo responded immediately and came and fixed it right away. As other reviewers have mentioned, the street outside can get loud at night but we actually really enjoyed the street noise - the best was the few times there were live musicians playing on the corner. I would love to stay there again the next time we're in Florence.
Matteo and Monica were very helpful during our trip to Florence, and we liked the place we stayed in very much. Matteo met us to hand over the keys and explained how things worked there. The apartment was very clean and spacious - the large loft was particularly welcome.
It is very conveniently located - most of Florence can be covered on foot from there, and it is about twenty minutes' walk to Florence's main train station. Santa Maria Novella. That made taking day trips to nearby towns very easy.
The only minor drawback is that the street in front sometimes gets noisy at night, with a lot of people passing through it. However, we experienced no major discomfort on that account. We would certainly try to stay there again if we visited Florence again.
De verhuurder heeft op tijd alle informatie gestuurd, die nodig was om het appartement te bereiken. Een medewerker was op tijd aanwezig om ons het appartement te tonen. Als je geen bezwaar hebt tegen trappen lopen en rumoer van buiten, dan is dit een goede keus voor een verblijf in Florence, vooral omdat het op loopafstand ligt van de meeste beziensbewaardigheden!
The apartment was spacious and comfortable but not very cosy. Some carpets could have helped to make the environment more pleasant. Sofa covers were not very clean. Bathroom was fine and well equipped. The noise from the piazza was really loud and we could sleep without ear plugs.
