El departamento de Yoko es magnífico y está ubicado en un lugar de privilegio: a pocos metros del Palazzo Pitti a la izquierda, y del Ponte Vecchio a la derecha.
Es muy cómodo, además de agradable y está equipado con todo lo necesario para una estadía fantástica.
Yoko es una anfitriona muy cálida y atenta y estuvo pendiente de todos los detalles desde el primer momento. Sus recomendaciones fueron muy valiosas.
Lo recomiendo y trataré de volver cada vez que vaya a Florencia.
Location cannot be better. It is minutes away from Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, in a very artsy area with good restaurants and interesting shops. Yoko is an excellent host and is always ready to help. The apartment is spotlessly clean and the kitchen had all we needed for simple meals. We had a party of 4 and the twin beds and two separate sofa beds served us well. Highly recommended if you'd like to experience The less touristy part of Florence.
Yoko is a top notch, fabulous host. She went out of her way to help us in many ways and was readily available by email, text and phone. Great location. Nice apartment that met our needs. Highly recommend! We look forward to going back one day. We are a family of 3 and part of the time we had a 4th person join us.
Yoko is a great host - very welcoming and organized. Apartment is very clean, comfortable, secure and has a great location. Would definitely recommend this apartment to family or friends.
We loved Florence and the location of Yoko 's apartment was great - just along from Ponte Vecchio and only a few minutes walk from the Duomo and other attractions. We walked from the station to the apartment - it took about 45 minutes (much longer than 15 - 20 minutes we were advised ) and I definitely would not recommend walking. We had luggage and the crowded uneven streets made walking difficult.
Yoko met us when we arrived and showed us over the apartment.
It was quite spacious and suited us for our one week visit. A supermarket was only a few minutes walk away and we were able to cook ourselves a few meals. The internet connection worked most of the time but occasionally, we had a bit of difficulty with it.
Being on a main street, it was a bit noisy, especially early in the morning. The two single beds were comfortable and the shower was good. A lift took us up to our apartment and there were no problems at all with security.
We appreciated having racks to dry our washing as there was no dryer.
When we left, we took the D bus to the station - a much better option than walking.
Overall, this apartment was not fancy, but fine for a visit of a few days and I would recommend it.
My boyfriend and I had a great 3 night stay at Yoko's apartment in September. Yoko was easy to communicate with and her apartment was in perfect condition. It was in a great location, with lots of amenities and very clean. I would recommend it to anyone staying in Florence.
Great host--responsive, fast and accommodating. Apartment is bright, clean, spacious and accessible by elevator.
Location was perfect for sightseeing, just 1 minute from Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, above a vibrant shopping/dining corridor, and a 10-20 minute walk to everywhere else. In the evenings, we enjoyed many free outdoor music events at Piazza Passere down the block; music goes until midnight and can be heard well from the apartment.
Travelling with a toddler, we appreciated that the location was easy to come back to for quick rests throughout the day and found it to be very safe for a young child.
Appartement propre et central. Yoko était à l'heure et est sympathique. Je recommande.
Yoko was easy to deal with ahead of the stay and Lorenzo was lovely to greet us when we arrived. The location is amazing - right on the road that goes onto the Ponte Vecchio. Fantastic spot.
The apartment is very easy to live in, with all amenities you need and good space for a family with young kids (like us with an 8 and 4 year old) or even just as 2 if the lounge was actually a lounge and not a second bedroom! We loved our time in Florence and were sad to leave even after a whole week. Yoko and Lorenzo were excellent to deal with and very accommodating even with our changes to plans. The apartment is excellent value especially for a week and we'd highly recommend it.
I just spent the most wonderful 4 weeks in Yoko's apartment. Yoko is a wonderful, patient host and her apartment is very clean, airy and absolutely beautiful. It was perfect for me in every way! The apartment looks exactly as it does in the photos. It is in a lovely building in a very lively, central area, very convenient for getting to any of the major attractions and just a one minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio bridge over the Arno or Palazzo Pitti. Buses are very close and the train station is just a 15 min walk away. The street is great for people watching and activity during the day, but is quiet in the late evening and overnight.
Living alone I always felt very safe, found everything I needed very easily and conveniently. The ceiling fan and the shutters kept the apartment very comfortable from the heat, so I didn't ever need to use the A/C.
I can't say enough to recommend this apartment. I am hoping to return again next year for a longer stay and certainly hope that the apartment is available then.
