Hello, i'm Raluca romanian architect established in Firenze. I studied art school also, so for me this place is like haven...full of history and beautifull places.
Our host Raluca was very welcoming and waiting for us to arrive. On our arrival she walked us through the flat and showed us around. The location was excellent with the Duomo within walking distance. You really do have to be self sufficient when staying here, as our host was not on hand. Don't forget to pack yourself a map of where you are staying, tea bags/ coffee & toilet roll as this, regrettably was not provided.
I was disappointed with the overall maintenance & cleanliness of the flat. The flat felt damp and was dirty upon arrival (I can not understand why, as we have paid a cleaning fee). I had to clean the whole bathroom to get it to a standard I would have expected to arrived to. There was even rubbish still left in the bins from the previous occupants, which was really unpleasant.
The beds are not very sturdy and moved with every turn.
If you're looking for a central location with a small price tag and don't mind living in a 'hostel' type of place, then this is the perfect retreat, providing you're no taller than. 5ft 8".
Prior to booking this place I relied heavily on the reviews, and I have taken the time to write an accurate account to help you when making your booking, to manage your expectations.

Я жила в квартире 3 дня. Чувствовала себя как дома, никто не беспокоил. Квартира находится в центре Флоренции. Очень близко до всех основных достопримечательностей. На кухне есть микроволновка, холодильник, кофеварка и посуда) потолки правда низкие но это и не важно ) Мне все понравилось!
l'appartement de Raluca ? : certes, il est petit et bas de plafond, mais il est juste à côté du centre historique et au calme, l'idéal pour visiter Florence à pied.
Raluca est une jeune femme adorable, et très aidante. Elle nous a d'abord attendu jusqu'à minuit pour pouvoir nous laisser les clés. Elle nous a indiqué l'épicerie qu'il fallait connaître. Et elle a été au téléphone quand nous avons eu besoin.
je ne peux que vous la recommander!
Firenze? a wonderful town!
Raluca's flat? small but za very nice and quiet place near the historical center. We have visited all on foot.
Raluca is a very likable young woman. First of all, she has waited for us to give the keys until midnight, told to us wher to find the nearest grocery. She has also answered to the phone when we needed her.
So, I can recommand the flat and Raluca!!
Great place to stay at if you want to be in the heart of Florence but just enough streets away from the noisy tourist areas. I would highly recommend staying here.
It would be nice though to have some free wifi.
AWESOME apartment and great location. The hostess is fantastic as well. I highly recommend this BnB!
Raluca was wonderful to deal with. The apartment is in an excellent location! Close to everything you'll want to see! The two minor downsides my daughters experienced were lack of hot water and wifi, but all the other conveniences more than made up for these minor inconveniences. Raluca was extremely helpful, and my daughters were very happy in the space!
My friend and I stayed two nights at Raluca's flat. She was very sweet and met us at the apartment at the prearranged time. The apartment is relatively close to the train station, but too far to walk with luggage in the Tuscan sun. A cab was only about $7 and was money well spent. The apartment is just as pictured and very nice/new. The only thing is the ceiling is quite low and it would not be good for anyone taller than say 5'11". It was great for us. It would be nice if WiFi could be made available.
Overall, this is a great apartment.
We really had a great stay at Raluca’s place. The appartment is clean and very well located. Perfect for two friends. Raluca was a very kind and accommodating host. Would recommend it to others.
