About this listing
A typical San Frediano apartment, which is located in the Oltrarno side of Florence (the west side of the river).
The apartment is on the second floor (no elevator) and typical to this neighborhood with hardwood floors and Florentine terracotta and wood ceilings. It has a spacious kitchen well equipped with modern appliances, a living room with a double sofa bed, a bed room which consists of two rooms, one with a king size bed and the other room with a twin size bed (there is no door between the two rooms). The heated bathroom consists of a shower, toilet and bidet and sink.
The apartment was recently renovated with modern appliances . There is internet wi-fi, a 2 in 1 washer dryer, TV, DVD player and thermostat controlled heating (radiators). The walls are insulated to keep heat in. There is no air conditioning, but the apartment stays cool because the bedroom is facing an inner courtyard. The living room has two very luminous windows with a nice view of Florentine roofs.

San Frediano is a historical neighborhood of Florence, where many artists live and have their studios / boutiques. It is typically a very quiet and calm area, but at the same time very lively in the surrounding piazzas where you will find many unique restaurants, bars and cafés that stay open past midnight.
The apartment is about a 10 min. walk from the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Pitti and Giardino di Boboli. A block from here you can find a supermarket, a farmacy, a little park, many cute shops and typical Florentine restaurants and cafés. The very popular Piazza Santo Spirito is also nearby, which is a very lively nightlife entertainment spot.
Santa Maria Novella station is a 15 min. walk and the airport is about a half hour drive.

Kindly look after our newly refurbished flat like it was your own. We ask that guests please remove their shoes at the door to help preserve our new wooden floor. This is a no smoking space and we do not allow guests with pets.
Nothing but PERFECT! Ivana's flat was lovely: so clean, stylish and practical. It is located in a fantastic neighbourhood. In fact, had we not stayed there, I feel we would have missed out of some of the best Florence has to offer.
Ivana provided such a warm welcome and left plenty of amazing recommendations. I would recommend this flat to anyone. We stayed with our 11 month old boy and it was perfect! Ivana has truly thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I hope we can come back to stay at Ivana's flat again in the near future.
It's a lovely apartment, private and clean, also spacious for a group of four. Ivana was away and Flavia greeted us and gave us the detailed information. We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment.
The apartment was nice and clean. We liked the neighborhood too. It was easy to walk everywhere, including to the train station. We were in Florence while it was really hot, good thing there were fans available.
Ivana's daughter was the one who greeted us and was really nice. She gave us information about restaurants in the neighborhood and also was flexible - we were able to stop by the apartment early to drop off our luggage.
J'ai été acceuilli par la fille d'Ivana - Flavia - elle m'a très bien acceuilli et m'a donné des conseils sur le quartier. L'appartement est très central, un quartier très "local".
Close to really great restaurants and people watching but on a quiet street. The apartment is supposed to have air conditioning I thought, but it was still very hot.. Could just be because it's so hot in Florence right now. Everything else was great! My plans changed at the last minute and Ivana was super flexible with me, so I appreciated that so much. Also since this is only my 2nd air b&b experience.
Overall you should definitely stay here if you are looking for a clean, quiet, and spacious place to stay in a great neighborhood!
Ivana is a fantastic host! She gave us great tips on the best places to eat near by. Her flat is clean and modern. She also booked a taxi for us and confirmed with us the night before.
We had a wonderful stay in Ivanas apartment. Everything was in perfect order and fully lived up to our expectations judging by the photos and descriptions. We totally fell in love with the San Frediano/Santo Spirito area and were very happy we chose the Oltrarno side of the city. The apartment is in walking distance to everything important and Ivana and her husband gave us a lot of useful recommendations and information (the green folder) when we arrived. Thank You!

About the Host, Ivana
Adoro Firenze: una città ricca di storia e di bellezze architettoniche conosciute in tutto il mondo. La mia casa, situata in S. Frediano il quartiere più vero e vivo della città, rispecchia in pieno il mio amore per Firenze e per i suoi abitanti. Sarò particolarmente lieta di ospitarvi in modo che possiate condividere queste due anime di Firenze: quella delle piccole strade con le botteghe degli artigiani e quella maestosa e storica dei suoi monumenti..
