With a little group of five we have stayed one week in this appartment in downtown Florence and it was indeed large and bright. A nice place to come home to and very quiet too. All monuments and museums were at walking distance. And the train and bus station just around the corner. Eleonora gave us a warm welcome and lots of good advice. The neighbourhood is great, with lots of nice little restaurants and a supermarket nearby. We really recommend this place.
The reservation was canceled 25 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Amazing, spacious, clean apartment within walking distance to the main train station.
We stayed here with 5 people- 2 couples and 1 single and it was lots of space for us.
The neighbourhood is great, and there are lots of good places to eat.
Super séjour dans cet appartement spacieux et propre, très bien situé dans un quartier agréable, proche des commerces et de petites trattorias de qualité. Nous étions un groupe de 5 amis et avons vraiment apprécié l'appartement, parfait pour nous. Martino répondait à toutes nos questions rapidement et a fait en sorte que nous nous sentions bien chez lui.
Je recommande cet appartement pour un groupe d'amis ou pour des couples d'amis.
This apartment was terrific! Eleanora helped us tremendously with locating good eateries (two of the best were right on the our street!) and welcoming us to the aprtment. Live entertainment midway up the block most evenings (bands and artisans) yet it was not noisy at night to sleep.
Clean and spacious. Fans were supplied and the screens, as promised, were in place to keep out the mosquitoes. Everything was in great condition and well stocked with pots and pans and dishes if you want to cook in. You can see the Duomo from the windows and a beautiful view from most windows....even into the courtyard below- charming! Close walk to all of Florence's best attractions including the Ponte Vecchio and the lovely road that parallels the Arno River.
Just wonderful....would stay here again.
We had 5 of us staying at the apartment (2 couples, 1 single) and it was easily large enough to accommodate all of us (thanks in part to the 2 bathrooms). The apartment is exactly as pictured and was very clean.
The communication with Martino & Eleanora was always prompt and all our questions were answered. Upon arrival Eleanora was able to give us some local tips as well which were very appreciated (including a local wine tour which was great).
The only downsides to the apartment is that it's on the 3rd floor (but really it's like the 5th floor of stairs) so if you have trouble with stairs it would be very difficult. Although the location was good to reach most places we weren't sure about it at night (felt a little sketchy) but we didn't have any issues or incidents while we were there. Lastly it is loud outside! The churchbells go off quite frequently and noise travels up to the apartment very easily, there was some nearby construction going on and it started at 7am every morning.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here and most of all Martino & Eleanora made it very easy to feel comfortable in the apartment. Although we had some downsides it was nothing that could have been changed. I would recommend this apartment to others.
The apartment is perfectly located in historic Florence, also on walking distance from the railway station, which is convenient whether you arrive by train or by plane as the airport bus shuttle brings you to the railway station.
Although we arrived later than planned, Eleonora and Alexandra waited for us and we easily retrieved the apartment keys. Alexandra was very kind and helpful in giving us useful information about the city and the apartment itself.
Bed arrangement was exactly as we expected. We were 5 friends and found the apartment very convenient with its 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
Although the apartment is in a busy area, rooms are very quiet as they give on an inner courtyard.
We would definitely recommend the apartment for a group of friends or a family.
Martino,s place is clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. We loved the location as it was great to explore Florence without having to use public transport. We ate from local places on our street.
Martino's friend, Elenora greeted us and was very friendly, informative and helpful.
We would highly recommend Martino's place.
The flat was central, clean and airy. Lots of restaurants close by and within walking distance of most attractions. The experience could have been even better with three improvements I would recommend the owner look into-
1. Noise- the people in the flat below partied every night till late and made it impossible for us to sleep until the party was over. They completely ignored our requests to talk softy or close their windows.
2. 3pm Check-in and 10am checkout times were very inconvenient for us. We had to leave our bags at the station etc to accommodate these.
3. 4th floor location- we didn't realize how hard it would be to lug bags up and down 4 flights of stairs. Martino did tell us that no help would be available with the bags, so no issues with him about it. But keep that in mind when booking this flat.
Also, this flat is managed by a management company, not by the host so you only get 1 dishwasher tablet and 1 load of laundry powder- 1 of everything!
In my experience, when hosts take care to provide essential items to guests for the duration of their stay, the experience is much more welcoming. I prefer flats run by owners themselves as they are much more likely to be customer friendly and sensitive to your needs. When asked Elenora (the lady who runs the management of the flat) about getting more laundry powder, she curtly refused saying "people might take it with them so they give only 1 of everything". I doubt someone who just spent several thousand dollars on a vacation would be interested in stealing a few dollars worth of laundry detergent... Oh well!
Great apartment. Great location. The owner was very nice and they were helpful. I would absolutely rent this apartment from Bruno again.
Very good clean guest
I just enjoyed having you 2 here in my house. You were both nice and friendly guests and although your stay was short we still had a lovely contact. Hope to see you again and I wish you all the best for the future. I can really recommend them.
Une rencontre fort sympathique, joyeuse, amusante, Martino et Eloise aiment plaisanter. J'aimerais bien les revoir, on dirait que l'on se connait depuis quelques temps déjà.
Eloisa and I miss Marie Odile's wonderful place in provence, her unique hospitality and her lovely dog !!!
Buenos huéspedes ...
Martino and friend were great guests to have. Martino is a very entertaining and friendly guy, and good to chat with. We really enjoyed having them to stay. He is positive and enthusiastic, and I appreciate that. We look forward to seeing them again.
Un verdadero placer haber hospedado a Martino en nuestra casa del (website hidden) un huésped amable, respetuoso y gran conversador.
Espero que coincidamos en un futuro no muy lejano, Martino!!!!!!!
