Great place, great host, great experience!
I had fair amount of luggage so I took a short, inexpensive taxi ride from the main Florence train station - if you have light luggage it would be possible to walk there. Allegra and a friend were there waiting to greet me and help me with the luggage - the apartment is on the second floor up a wide formal staircase. Allegra also helped me with my luggage and the taxi when I left. The apartment is bright and cheerful, as you can tell from the photos - the photos are accurate. There are three main rooms, the living room, kitchen/dining room and the bedroom. All are spacious and well furnished. The living room and kitchen have big windows and great natural light. The bedroom and bathrooms have very small windows, but provide good ventilation when open and when closed the bedroom was quiet at night. All the furnishings, linens and towels, dishes etc. were recent, well-organized, clean, comfortable and in excellent condition. There was plenty of closet/storage space in the bedroom and kitchen. The refrigerator and washing machine/dryer are small, but they were definitely fine for one person, and should be OK for 2-3 people as well. There is an English language instruction manual available for the washer/dryer, I was confused until I read it haha. The bathroom had a large tub and convenient shower fixtures, as opposed to the cramping and contraptions often found in Europe. The internet/wifi worked well over the course of my month stay, which is critical for me because I try to keep working on various projects while I travel. There were a couple of days in the middle of the month when the internet was periodically out for an hour or two at a time. Allegra was very responsive to the problem, and the internet worked fine for the rest of my stay. Internet glitches like that also occasionally happen at home in Cambridge, MA alas. In general, Allegra answered text messages quickly and positively, though there really weren't any other significant issues during my stay. Carlos, the Peruvian handyman that works in the building was kind and helpful, he did a great job of cleaning the apartment for me every week at a very reasonable rate.
The neighborhood is quiet, safe and pleasant, there is a "mini-supermarket" a couple of blocks away and nice cafes and bakery/delis on every block. After a 10-15 minute leisurely stroll down a quiet, pleasant, narrow street with very few cars you are in the heart of central Florence with its glorious architecture, art galleries and shopping. Some of Florence's most famous attractions are even closer.
I really loved my stay in Florence and the apartment. The stately architecture of the building, the cheerful, well-organized furnishings and supplies and the positive, helpful and responsive attitude of Allegra and her staff helped make my first experience in Italy truly wonderful. I hope to return again soon!
Dear Patrick thank you so much for such a wonderfully detailed evaluation.
I sincerely do hope you come back and stay in Florence and in my apartment!
all the best

Allegra´s apartment is amazing! The location couldn't be better: a nice and quiet area but still very central, we could easily walk everywhere. The apartment is super spacious but also cozy, very clean and the bed is extremely comfortable. All the windows face the gorgeous Palazzo´s garden, which can be accessed through the kitchen door. Sitting in the garden in the morning and catching some sunlight to start off the day was a beautiful surprise on my holidays! On top of all that, Allegra is a lovely person and super helpful! She introduced my mother and I to a friend of hers who is also from Brazil over a cup of coffee and they both gave us great advice on places to visit, nice restaurants,... Without a doubt I will book it again next time Im in Florence!
The apartment is beautiful, clean, and perfectly located. Allegra was gracious and helpful -- and always very easy to communicate with. We will definitely stay here again!
The apartment is really fantastic, even better than the pictures. Plus it has a beautiful garden. The neighborhood is great, both quiet and close to everything one wants to see. Allegra was very helpful, as was Carlos. I will try to stay here again next time in Florence.
Thank you Edward I hope to have you stay here again in the future it was wonderful to have you too and i am glad you enjoyed the garden and terrace and that you were lucky with the weather!
This was a fantastic choice. This is a real palazzo. Gardens in the back. The location was perfect. Quiet. Close to the Duomo. Huge apartment beautifully decorated. Allegra was a very amicable and accessible host. The place is stocked with some food and coffee. Full kitchen facilities. Washer (no dryer). For vegans or vegetarians, this loft is close to two vegan or vegetarian restaurants. The cafe across the street serves soy cappuccino. We highly recommend this apartment.
The location of this appartment is perfect, short walking distance to the Duomo, and Via San Gallo is a nice quiet street. Opposite the building there is a really nice inexpensive coffeebar, a great place to start your day. The 15th century palazzo in which the apartment is situated is gorgeous; high ceiling, thick walls, marble floor, sculptures, everything you wish to see when visiting Florence. It's an experience. The apartment itself is a bit dark, but we were there only to sleep so that wasn't really a problem for us. And last but not least: Allegra is a nice, quick and helpful host.
Allegra and Her sister were very kind, helpful and very Available!
The apmt is so nice, well decorated and very clean in a splendid typical Firenze palazzo !! Moreover the studio is Spacious and well situated!
Our trip was perfect and Firenze always so beautiful!
I "like" ;)
Allegra's flat in the Palazzo Pandolfini was great for our visit to Florence. It is close to the historic center but is quiet and faces onto a peaceful garden. The weather was unusually warm for October, but the flat was always pleasantly cool to return to. It was also lovely to be able to spread out & enjoy all the space & comfortable furniture. We took advantage of having a fully functional kitchen & prepared several dinners & breakfasts during our stay, as well as fixing a couple of picnic lunches to carry with us on bus trips to nearby towns.
The combination of the historic palazzo & the flat's modern furnishings reflect Florence itself, which is a fascinating mixture of the old & the new.
Allegra was easy to work with & very responsive during initial inquiry, booking, arrival, and departure.
Speedy Internet, washer/dryer, and kitchen were great features.
It was a wonderful experience. We love the localization.
The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable.Allegra welcomed us and guided us very well,she is an excellent host. We higly recommend this option.
Fiorentica doc, Allegra gestisce con professionalità e passione le proprietà di famiglia.
Amiche da anni nonché ex colleghe, ho avuto modo di testare la sua gentilezza nell'accoglienza degli ospiti.
