Roberta was very conscientious and arranged a time to give us the key and provided advice for our stay. She also helped us arrange for a taxi to get to the airport at the end of our stay. The apartment is lovely; a restored and updated spacious apartment with a modern bath and kitchen in an historic old palace. It is obvious that Roberta and Stefano take great care in hosting.The neighborhood has wonderful shops for groceries and wine, as well as restaurants, while being an easy walkable distance to all sites and museums. In all, a great week getting to know Firenze. Thank you!
My girlfriend and I had a great stay in July. We were later than expected into Florence due to train problems, but Roberta waited for us at the apartment with no fuss and gave us a quick tour. The apartment itself is stunning, high ceilings with an incredibly ornate roof, quiet bedroom at the back, a balcony etc. The location is also perfect, a short walk from Santa Maria Novella station and just 30 seconds from the river and all of the main Florence sites. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Florence. Thank you Roberta!
This apartment is the perfect home base for exploring all of Florence. It's a true oasis -- it was so comfortable and we enjoyed it so much that it was hard to leave each morning!
From my first contact with Roberta to our last, every interaction was friendly, kind, responsive, and very professional. Roberta was there at the apartment to welcome us when we arrived from the airport. We were very tired and trying to adjust to the hot weather -- the cold glasses of juice she offered upon arrival were much appreciated! The espresso capsules, platter of fruit chilling in the refrigerator, and list of recommended restaurants were also very thoughtful touches.
The apartment itself looks like it belongs in a design magazine -- it is sleek, modern, and very stylish with lovely art and high-end furnishings and linens. Not to mention it is so clean that you could eat off the floors!! It's _sparkling_ clean!! Roberta showed us around and provided easy instructions on how to operate the washing machine, dishwasher, espresso machine, window shutters, etc. We felt very well taken care of!
The accommodations were perfect for our family of 4. Our children shared the comfortable sofa bed in the main living area, and my husband and I took the bedroom upstairs. Despite the apartment's central location, it was pretty quiet at night, especially in the bedroom. There is occasionally a bit of street noise that can be heard from the living room sofa-bed (late night revelers out on the town), but that was easily solved with ear plugs. The apartment's Wifi device worked beautifully but the internet service provider was experiencing technical problems during our stay, so we were only able to get internet sporadically. Roberta called the ISP several times to find out what was going on and was very apologetic, but we totally understood -- the problem was on the ISP side and out of her control. We really appreciated the very effective air-conditioning units in every space -- a must for combatting the city's hot and muggy summers!!
The location of this apartment is ideal. Every "must-see" in town is within a 10-15 minute walk. Cafes and mini-markets are on the same block. It's a couple blocks from the Arno River and a quick walk over the bridge to the Oltrarno neighborhood, where the least touristy, most delicious/authentic, and most affordable restaurants are. Stay away from the restaurants in central Florence that target tourists, especially the ones that advertise scenic views -- we found these places to be sub-par and overpriced. If you're a foodie, stay off the beaten path and go to the Oltrarno neighborhood for your meals. A Florentine friend had suggested the Trattoria dell'Orto, Fuori Porta, and Gusta Pizza -- all were outstanding, especially the Trattoria dell'Orto.
Thank you, Roberta, for your hospitality and for sharing your heavenly apartment with us. You helped to make our Florence trip all the more magical! You're the best!!
This is a beautiful apartment with a tremendous location. We had a late evening arrival and Roberta was waiting for us when we got there. She took us through the apartment and gave us detailed directions to restaurants, supermarkets and sites we wanted to see. Roberta was always available whenever we contacted her prior to our arrival and while we were there.
We absolutely loved the apartment. It was very comfortable and quite. I would highly recommend staying here.
I went there with my parents at may, Our stay at the apartment was great, there were all we need even the touristic information and the book. When we arrived they were there at the apartment and host us very well with fruit and juice. The location of the apartment is also very good, near the station, beautiful river and historic center.
In less words I can say we were so comfortable there enjoyed our trip and we hope to repeat this experiment once again.
My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 1 week in May and liked it very much. The apartment is very well decorated, comfortable and conveniently located just outside the busy part of the city centre. Roberta and Stefano were very good and profesional host. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this apartment to friends and family.
The apartment is is fantastic, and the location is very convenient for walking around town. Roberta is great to work with and made our stay very comfortable. I would want to stay there again when I return.
The Perfect Location Design Apartment was perfetto in all ways. The description is accurate. Location could not be better. Amenities in the apartment were well thought out as was the design and decor. Felt like we were in an upper-end loft in a metropolitan city such as New York. Safety was not a concern. The washer is an added plus especially with small children. We will definitely try to book here again.......and highly recommend to anyone for a stay in Firenze. Thanks Roberta and Stefano. Arrivederci !
It is definitely a Perfect Location Design Apartment.
We are a family of 5 and stayed for Easter week in Roberta and Stefano's apartment. It was perfect. Everything was very clean and modern. The kids loved it. I would recommend it to anyone and would definitely stay there again.
She even bought fruit and croissants for us to have when we arrived.
She also helped us and gave us tips for restaurants and other things to do.
Thanks for a lovely stay.
We had a wonderful stay in the apartment, there is just nothing to complain about. The apartment looks just as in the pictures, even more spacious. Very clean and well equiped (though we didn't use the kitchen very much) and very tastefully furnished. Roberta was a great host and always available. We had a great time and strongly recommend the apartment and the host to others!
Thank you, Roberta!
