Great apartment for large groups. The location is amazing and the owners are wonderful. Like most places there are a lot of stairs but very worth it for the location.
We fit six comfortably and there are several extra keys so all can come and go. Wonderful restaurant downstairs too. Watching the swallows fly around the church in the mornings from the front windows is priceless! Be careful of the address since there are two very similar #14's within a block of each other. I highly recommend this apartment!
It (email hidden) to stay. Felt like you were staying at a friend's apartment - very homey and charming. Excellent location, right across the street from the Santa Croce basilica and easy walking distance to all the sites you would want to see. Guiliano, Mauro's father, met us when we arrived and was extremely nice and helpful. In fact, all the wonderful comments about Guiliano in the previous reviews was the deciding factor in why we chose this apartment. The washing machine broke while we were there and Guiliano had it fixed by the next day. All the amenities were nice - comfortable beds, good showers, large kitchen with all the plates and cookware you would need, etc.
We visited with Guiliano our last day and he said his family wanted this apartment to be a place where travelers (especially families) could come to Florence and have a comfortable, enjoyable place to stay. They have accomplished that!!!
If we come back to Florence we will definitely stay there again. One of the highlights of our 3 weeks in Italy!
A terrific apartment in a great location, it's places like this that helps makes airbnb a success.
Mauro's father was helpful, funny and informative.
They have a binder full of Information about how the apartment works, local restaurants and tips. (Very handy when a breaker blows and you have to find the two fuse boxes, one three floors down)
Internet spotty but he has two separate wifi connections which helped.
The 56 steps up to the apartment just reminded me I need to work out more.
Try the little market close to Guilliano's own home and 5 minutes from the (website hidden) vegetables and best prices in Firenze.
The mosquitos really do suck, so close your windows at night.
A great well stocked kitchen was helpful.
There is a small library.
The place was very clean.
Only problem was limited power availability to the apartment. If you have an air conditioner running and turned on the washer for instance you would pop the breaker. Really just inconvenient.
Book with confidence and enjoy the apartment as a great base to explore the city.
This apartment is in a fantastic location that is near all the main sites of the city with great restaurants (email hidden) right nearby. Mauro's father is so so helpful and lovely, we really enjoyed our stay!
We have such a great stay in Florence in this apartment! Guiliano made the check-in/out process very easy, so friendly! Great location, great atmosphere!
Todo ha ido fenomenal. El apartamento genial, tal y como aparece y muy bien situado.Un sitio recomendable si quieres visitar la ciudad. Con el anfitrión todo correcto, incluso nos dejo algún detalle y no tuvimos ningún tipo de problema. Sin duda repetiremos.
We were on a family vacation and the Santa Croce Apartment was fantastic. Mauro was very responsive to my pre-vacation questions and his mother and father, Giuliano and Caterina, were at that apartment to greet us when we arrived. The apartment is located in a perfect location to get around Florence without needing transportation. We felt very comfortable in the apartment and loved that we had room for family meals and together time. When it was time to leave, Giuliano came and called taxis for us to get to the train station. When visiting Florence in the future, I would definitely try to stay again at the Santa Croce Apartment.
We had a very nice stay at Mauro's Santa Croce apartment. It (email hidden) in a perfect location - we had easy access to everything we wanted to do while in Florence, everything was within walking distance. Prior to our trip, Mauro was very quick to respond with any inquiries I had, and was helpful with questions I asked. Mauro's father, Guiliano, checked us in when we arrived, and was very helpful in going over things we needed to know about the apartment and about sites to see, places to eat, etc. in Florence. He gave us great tips about shopping at the local market as well. Checkout also went smoothly, and Guiliano called a cab for us to get us to the train station. There were 4 of us staying there, 2 couples, and we had more than enough space for all of us. The apartment was clean and tidy and offered all amenities we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The master bedroom and bath were very spacious, and the second bedroom our friends stayed in was also very nice. The showers worked very well (we had a rough time with showers in Rome) and the kitchen was well equipped. We really liked sitting in the main living area, drinking wine (and they provided our first bottle of wine), and leaning out the large window and people-watching. I had never been to Italy before and this apartment and area pretty much exactly matched what my imagination had conjured up for the perfect Italian experience. I would absolutely stay in this apartment again if I ever return to Florence. Thank you so much to Mauro and Guiliano for providing a beautiful and affordable apartment for our vacation!
We have been welcomed by Mauro's father who is very kind and educated person. He spent time to describe the place to us and provided documentation about Florence. Giuliano also left us a Chianti bottle as a welcome Gift. Thank you Giuliano.
I apreciated Giuliano concerns about spending water or electricity and think he has been very honest about our expenses. 5 nights in May costed us 8 euros (Water and electricity).
The flat is nicely situated not far from historical center. It (email hidden) which is good.
I don't think the place is suitable for 4 people but it is perfect for a couple. The bed was too soft for a perfect comfort.
We enjoyed our (email hidden).
L'hôte de cet appartement est très compétent, et accueillant et très aimable. Il nous a proposé une solution pour mettre dans un garage proche notre véhicule assez long.
L'appartement est grand et chaleureux, extrêmement bien situé , à côté de l'église de Santa Croce en plein centre mais dans le calme, bon restaurant au pied de l'immeuble.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette ville magnifique.
Bémol : beaucoup de touristes à cette saison;
Mauro med familj var en trevlig och bra hyresgäst. Rekommenderar Mauro som hyresgäst.
Cliente muy agradable pero ha dejado el apartamento muy sucio.
It was a delight to meet Mauro & Veronica & have them stay with us. I know that they enjoyed the peace & quiet of the riad & hope also that they enjoyed their time in Marrakech. I would very much like to visit Florence & stay in one of their appartments.

Great places to stay. I reccomend Mauro and his family as wonderful host for a stay in Florence.
I stayed at the Bergellini apartment with friends last May, and I highly recommend it. It was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, well-stocked for cooking and eating on-site, and had wi-fi. It was centrally located to attractions and not far from the train, as well as close to banks and a large supermarket. It was on a quiet street and in a safe location. Mauro (email hidden), and all went flawlessly. Hope to return!

I highly recommend staying in these apartments. It is a beautiful walk to the main sites. The apartments are great and inexpensive for the value and for the location.
