We spent 8 nights in this lovely apartment. Roberta made us feel very welcome. After traveling for 16 hours to get to Florence we were grateful to have some food in the kitchen to cook a light meal on our arrival. Roberta advised us on restaurants, offered to make bookings for us and also lent us two very useful guidebooks on Florence. We were very gratetful for the help we received from Roberta in booking a taxi - the day we left was a public holiday and we had trouble getting hold of someone on that day. The AirBnB posting was accurate and the neighborhood absolutely ideal for sightseeing on foot.
What a fabulous experience. From start to finish our stay was outstanding: Roberta met us as scheduled, and the apartment was even more spacious than described -- and spotless. Belissimo. Romantic, grand piazza entrance, very quiet and private space. Luxurious and well maintained. I would return here and send my closest friends and family here without hesitation. Roberta helped us with restaurant reservations and had taxis, directions... everything a tourist would need from the beginning of our stay. Also, what a great location! Easy access to everything (Ufizzi, Santa Croce, the Arno) and a very hip part of town (lots of places open late -- our favorite was Club Culinario Toscano da Osvaldo). What a wonderful and special flat to make Florence even more magical. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thank you, Roberta. We will be back!!!

Roberta and Stefano were wonderful hosts. They were available and polite and provided very good tips for our stay in Florence. The apartment is very comfortable and well located in the city centre, in an old renovated building, with all the main attractions just around the corner! It was a truly pleasant stay and we would be very happy to return.
Firstly, you will not find a better apartment in Florence. Not only is it in a top top location within short walking distance of practically all the main sites, but it is almost palatial. It has lift access which was a bonus with our luggage and it has a huge decorated ceiling (I believe the building is originally 16th century) with a perfect layout. Everything is extremely modern inside as well including the kitchen which is fully functional and which we used to make breakfast and dinners with no problems. Roberta had stocked the apartment with everything we needed including soaps and washing powder (washing machine is another bonus). The apartment has a Wi-Fi connected Mac computer in a study nook upstairs which was great and Wi-Fi and heating throughout the apartment. Roberta herself was the perfect host keeping in touch with us before our check in and also provided some great tips on the city e.g. attractions and restaurants. She even made a restaurant booking for us at a great restaurant overlooking the Pontevecchio. If you are looking at this listing, go no further and snap this one up quickly. I only wish I lived here myself.
I chose Roberta and Stefano's apartment based on all the great reviews and I have to say they actually underplayed the experience. The apartment is simply lovely, impeccably clean and in an ideal location just a block from the river. The architecture is spectacular and the amenities for such a historic building were more than excellent. Especially nice were the little touches Roberta included as host, like a hair dryer, umbrellas guidebooks and even English language novels. Roberta was highly responsive and even checked in on us via text during our stay. All in all, I can't recommend this listing enough. Thanks to Roberta for an incredible stay in Florence!
We were welcomed on our arrival by Roberta who greeted us warmly and helped us take our luggage up the flight of stairs to the apartment. Roberta had communicated with us by text message confirming arrangements for our arrival and agreeing to an earlier time at our request. Her instructions about arrival were impeccable as were the notes she gave us about both the use of the apartment and local facilities, supermarkets etc and restaurants. Roberta showed us around the apartment, instructing us on how it worked (all very straightforward) and oriented us on the map of Florence which she had marked up with various restaurants and supermarkets as well as indicating the apartment's position. Most thoughtfully, Roberta had provided us with some basic food - including milk, orange juice and coffee pods for the Nespresso machine. Florence was still quite cool and wintery, but the apartment was already warm when we arrived - and the bed made up, and bath towels etc. in place.
The apartment was as delightful, impeccably clean and handsomely (though simply) furnished - as it appeared in the photos. It is immensely comfortable, with generous living spaces and a good kitchen with up-to-date appliances and a good sized dining table, a handsome bathroom with sound plumbing and an easy-to-use washing machine. The bedroom was small but held a good sized, comfortable bed and had good lighting (one could read in bed if desired). The bedroom has a pretty view into the beautiful fifteenth century colonnaded inner courtyard (atrium) designed by Brunelleschi (the famous Renaissance architect of the great dome of the Duomo).
The apartment is brilliantly placed: it is both very central (one can walk to all the major sights easily) but also on the edge of the tourist area, so that local shops catered for local Florentines rather than tourists. An excellent friendly Alimentari was a few steps away and the experience of shopping locally delightful. One could hardly wish for anything more pleasing. We would very happily return there and will certainly recommend it to our friends as a perfect place for a couple to stay in Florence - or even a couple with a child who could sleep on the sofa (the bathroom is off the bedroom so would not be otherwise suitable). My partner and I have already conveyed our heartfelt thanks to Roberta, but do so again here - staying in the Palazzo Bardi felt very privileged and enriched our experience of Florence immeasurably. Thank you Roberta and Stefano.
We spent 6 nights in this beautiful apartment and had a wonderful time. Location is great as you are a 10 minute stroll to all the major sights. There a large variety of restaurants and grocery stores along the nearby streets.
The apartment is very charming and set in a beautiful ex palazzo. You have everything you need including free wifi.
Roberta was a wonderful host, very helpful and accommodating upon our arrival.
"Perfect Location Luxury Apartment" hosted by Roberta and Stefano is an apt description of their charming, beautifully designed apartment. The hosts provide comforts and thoughtful amenities for the travelers' delight; offering maps, recommendations and advice to explore the charm and beauty of Firenze.
When we return to Florence, we would love to stay at this very special apartment again.
The apartment is lovely and well located for seeing the sights in Florence. We enjoyed the immediate neighborhood for restaurants and shopping and it was close to all major attractions. Roberta was very responsive and reliable. An excellent accommodation.
Roberta, Stefano and her friends were fantastic guests. They were not only charming and easy to communicate with, but they left the flat in such a great condition it was more clean than when they arrived! I would happily welcome them back any time.
