Our stay at Via del Corso was just as we had imagined. Excellent location, very close to everything yet, when you needed it, you had a perfect getaway up in the rooftops. The terrace is just what you dream of after a hot and crowded August day sightseeing.
Patricia and her husband were very pleasant. She was there to meet us, even though we were a little early and rang her because we had trouble finding the door (we now know that red house numbers are retail and business addresses and black numbers are residential in Florence).
The small apartment had everything we needed - wifi, air conditioning, kitchen, comfortable bed and cotton bedding, iron and ironing board. And for those who might need one, a supermarket very close by.
One thing I would mention for some to bear in mind is that there are 75 steps up to the attic apartment and quite a tight staircase.
We would return in an instant and totally recommend a stay.
My husband and I stayed at Patrizia's apartment during our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Patrizia met us at the apartment even though we were early for our check-in, and gave us so many recommendations for things to do, see, and eat in Florence. Her apartment is super clean, bright, AND it has air conditioning (which saved us in the August heat!). The bed was so nice and comfortable (we loved the sheets and pillows - so soft!). We really enjoyed the terrace, too. It is completely private and is the perfect place to have an afternoon drink. The apartment is centrally located; we were only steps from anything we wanted to do. We would absolutely recommend Patrizia's place to anyone visiting Florence who wants to live like a local!
We were told to "text or call" upon arrival so that've could be let in to the apartment - however, being international travelers with no working telephones (excluding wifi), this was not easy to coordinate.
The apartment is charming, and in a central location in the city. Our experience was positive, with a few notes for future guests: wifi signal is quite weak and only works near the front door. Check out is at 10am SHARP. The cleaning lady unlocked the door to the apartment at this time precisely. A later time might be difficult to negotiate (we tried).
Keep in mind that this apartment is managed by a vacation rental company and lacks the homey, personal charms and touches that we have enjoyed with so many other Airbnb accomodations.
This apartment is very nice and centrally located. Check-in was very easy and the host accommodated our request for an additional electric fan as it was very hot, which was much appreciated. The terrace is lovely with a great view of the Duomo, as pictured. The space is a bit smaller than it seems in the photos, but has ample space for a short stay. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay for your first visit to Florence, as it is in walking distance of all the major sights.
The host canceled this reservation 220 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Appartement typique de Florence, très mignon avec une terrasse magnifique et très bien situé. Toutefois, l´appartement est situé sous les toits (sans ascenseur) et il y fait très chaud. La clim, très bruyante, fonctionnait mal. La douche était également défectueuse (pas d´eau chaude).
