Samuel's place was an experience of a lifetime. We woke up every morning to the sight of il duomo chiming in the morning sun, the view was INCREDIBLE. Also the apartment is located right on the bustling via del corso, 5 min from Dante Alighieri's house and ten min to either the duomo or palazzo vecchio. Very convenient and well equipped. - nick
I love Samuel's hospitality! Very warm and inviting, and smiled a lot even though we were late for check-in. He was very accommodating as well and always within close reach if you have any problems. I'll definitely be back!! -Weidong
Samuel is a lovely person who even offered to search for my son when I thought he was lost. The flat does have breathtaking views (video the duomo to record the bells) and was close to everything and easy to find from the train station. An Organ recital was held at the church next door each evening as a fundraiser but ended by 22:00 so was not intrusive. The hot water pressure pump was intermittently noisy, but all you have to do is turn the heat down at night and it is quiet. The flat was clean and spacious, the location ideal. I would highly recommend staying here.
True to the photographs and description, this flat is magnificient and breathtaking. It is kept very clean as well! Highly recommend. :)
Samuel was such amazing help and he is very kind, giving us complimentary tickets to the Basilica for which we were most grateful. Our main regret? We did not stay long enough. :)
Very beautiful apartment with amazing views. A lot of stairs to walk up but wasn't an issue, just a heads up. Everything went great and was very easy! Thanks Samuel!
Logement spacieux et très propre en plein centre du quartier historique, contribuant à un séjour de rêve!
Samuel was very professional and helpful. This is a gem of an apartment and very well situated. The crisp and clean bedding, the tasteful decor and overall functionality of the kitchen and rest of the apartment was well appreciated. We were four adults sharing the space and it worked very well for us. It is such a thrill to wake up in the morning to see the towering Duomo in the window frame with a lovelyTuscan roof scape below. It is situated in a throbbing and trendy part of Florence yet we never had a problem with street noise at night.
I stayed here in March 2014. Everything was as expected and there were no surprises, which is always good. Samuel was very flexible with me, letting me drop bags off early before check in and leave them after check out. This really helped me enjoy Florence and not have to worry about what I was going to do with my luggage. As it is relatively cold in March, Samuel had the heat on, which worked well and heated the entire house. The internet worked flawlessly. One trivial thing that I really liked was that soap and shampoo was provided- this is a rarity in my experience.
The view really is incredible. You can lay in bed an stare at the Duomo, or if you prefer, step out on the balcony and enjoy it in all it's glory. There is also a balcony on the street side of the apartment, so you can people watch on the very busy Via Del Corso.
Overall, I had a very positive experience. However, there are a couple things you should be aware of. The apartment is in a busy art of town, so you won't have complete peace and quiet all night. There is also a church next door that regularly plays organ music, which can be heard through the walls. It is not enough to keep most people awake and I had no trouble sleeping. What was irritating was the water heater that constantly came on. It's rather loud even with the bedroom door shut, as it's right outside the bedrooms. Again, it wasn't enough to keep me awake for long, but even when you'e not using water, it cycles on and off for some reason.
Don't let these things deter you, though. You'll be VERY hard pressed to find a better property in a location like this with a view like this. Samuel is also a great host and will help to ensure your stay in Florence is as easy as possible. Stop looking and book the place already!
Samuel's apartment was perfect! The location was very convenient to all the major sites. And the views from the bedrooms really are breathtaking! We had everything we needed in the apartment. The apartment was also very clean. Samuel was very accommodating and helpful. I was able to reach him very quickly whenever I had a question. He also gave us great information about Florence and places to check out! I would absolutely stay here again!
Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location--Samuel was prompt, welcoming and extremely helpful!! GREAT experience!
We spent four days at Samuel's in february. The apartment offers a lot of space with two large bedrooms (with an amazing view on the duomo, even better than on the picture !). The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is very clean and spacy.
The location of the apartment is perfect, as it is really in the center of the historical center, but isolated from the noise of the street. Well, you can hear the church bells but it is music to my ears...Samuel is a perfect host, he was king enough to wait for us even though we arrived very late and he provided us with all the informations about the apartment and the neighborhood. We can warmly recommend this place.
