The apartment's location was superb with a breathtaking view of the Duomo that made coming home from the beautiful streets of Florence a pleasure. It was only a blcok from both the Accademia anc the Duomo, and 2 blocks from the mercado centrale. We did have a hiccup initially with one of the entrance door keys not working, but the amazing building doorman came to the rescue! I do second some of the other reviews about the hot water- we are even quick shower takers and it was very cold one morning. At check out time, arrangements were made to help us avoid having to store our bags at the train station for any longer than necessary.
La casa è come appare in foto: luminosa, accogliente, centrale e con una splendida vista sull'Arno. Katia inoltre è stata molto cortese nel soddisfare le nostre richieste connesse al check in. Assolutamente da consigliare.
This apartment is reli beautiful with well designed decoration. The most impressive was the landscape view from windows.
Katia's Terrace on the Cathedral was spectacular. Although not meeting Katia personally, her communication with us from the pre booking stage to the conclusion of our stay was excellent. Her friend Valeria showed us through the apartment, and after going through all the details she said lets go out onto the balcony. WOW! Jaw dropping WOW. To sit here with a glass of wine with the Duomo almost within touching distance (slight exaggeration) was brilliant. The location was great for everything. Even the walk from and to the station with heavy bags only took 10 minutes. (Don't catch a taxi). At the conclusion of our stay we forgot to leave the keys, which was unforgiveable. However Katia was very understanding and we posted the keys back to her straight away. This accommodation so far has been the highlight of our 10 week sojourn through Europe.
The apartment looks exactly like the pictures attached to the ad. Cristina was very punctual to hand us the keys when we arrived the apartment.
- Great location, about 5 mins to main tourist attractions (duomo etc)
- Clean and cosy apartment
- Beautiful view of the city from the balcony
- It was raining on one of the days and I whatsapped Cristina to check whether they have an umbrella in the apartment. Luckily there was one in the apartment!
Overall, it was a pleasant stay :) thanks for having us!
Katia communicated well throughout booking process and Cristina warmly welcomed us on arrival. The apartment is true to description- spacious for two, great views, small kitchen, but the bathroom was recently updated (same layout, not orange tiles as in picture). The apartment is ideally located- near attractions, restaurants, supermarket, and walking distance to train station.
It was wonderful house.
We could have great time in Firenze.
The scenery from balcony was not just like the picture. More marvelous;)
The location was very close to duomo but not so noisy.(actually quiet)
Thank you again to Katia.
This is a really good base from which to explore Florence - the flat is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to the Duomo etc, but tucked away from the crowds. It is clean and modern, and there's a great food market in a nearby square on weekday mornings. We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment.
Could not recommend this place highly enough!! The view and location of the flat is unbelievable. It is much more spacious than the photographs suggest, very clean and honestly the perfect place to stay. Cristina was fantastic upon arrival and gave us great tips and restaurant recommendations. You must stay here!
What a perfect location in Firenze! We had a private car up from Siena but were within a very easy walk to the train station. The location was fantastic - central to all of the main attractions and walkways of Florence. The hosts had maps in the apartment, which were definitely needed. The view was exactly as described and pictured. It opened up directly to the river and had a nice breeze when opened. The only downsides would be the heat of the room and the bathroom. They warned us about the heat when we checked in, so they were definitely accommodating and we weren't surprised. We weren't in our room much outside of sleeping, so it wasn't a deterrent from staying here. As for the bathrooms, it worked perfectly for me, but my husband is 6'4 and 250, and he struggled a little with the size of the shower. The host was really accessible for our stay and helped us when we had a mix up with the door combination. She pointed out places for us to visit and directions for some of the attractions we had on our list to see. She was extremely sweet and helpful!
