Our time in Florence was amazing and part of this is due to Mariateresa's studio.
The studio is located on the south side of the river, about a 20 minute walk from Firenze SMN station. It is relatively easy to find. Once you cross the Carraia bridge you just walk straight and it is on your right. The number are confusing because Residential and Business can have the same address. So as we were walking I had thought we'd passed it because I was seeing numbers higher than the one we were supposed to stay at.
Mariateresa was out of town, so the couple that lives on the same floor let us in. They were very nice and showed us the studio and bathroom. The bathroom is in the main hallway but is private and not part of their living space. So we only saw them once or twice again during the week. The bathroom appears to have been recently remodeled and was fabulous. I will stay the course and say that the shower is fantastic as well!!!
The studio was perfect size for a week. There are the two windows that open to the street and let plenty of light in. They could be closed at night to block out light. Despite being on the street, the noise was quite low. We never had a problem getting to sleep and the bed is very comfortable.
The kitchen was small but more than capable of cooking meals out of. We had at least one meal in there each day. There is a small coffee maker for us to enjoy coffee with. I do recommend having plenty of acqua naturale around for drinking, cooking, etc. Normally we would use the tap water for cooking and coffee, etc but the water had a very strong and strange scent. The closest comparison I could make, is the smell a powered train set makes as it heats up around the track. We did use it on occasion, still safe!
We had an issue a few days into our stay when the B&B below came upstairs to let us know that water was leaking into their place. It turns out the sink in the kitchen would somehow leak water into the room below. This meant we weren't allowed to use the kitchen sink, but it didn't affect the bathroom at all. We just washed our dishes in the sink in there. It was handled very smoothly by the owner of the B&B and Mariateresa.
The neighborhood is great. There are a few small markets and an organic market on the street, as well as a few very good restaurants and a wonderful bakery. Also, Gelato and a vending machine that sells pasta. Walking distance to everything in Florence including the Duomo, Academia, Uffizi, Piazzale Michelangelo, Palazzo Pitti.
Wifi is weak in the room, hallway is the best place to get a signal but the hallway is nice and there were a few chairs out there.
Mariateresa was really helpful prior to the trip and was really professional. The flat is well located and within distance of most touristic places. The room was quite spacious and the bed comfortable. Bathroom is private BUT in the corridor which connects to other rooms so you may meet people on your way back to the room. The bathroom is clean and the shower is nice. Overall it was a good stay and really affordable.
Did not get to meet host, but host was very helpful through email.
Spacious room, but toilet is NOT within the room.
Comfortable bed and pillows. Shower area is spacious too.
Walking distance to train station is 20 mins walk.
Felt safe but traffic can be loud as apartment is on 2nd floor.
No lift in building.
Lovely room in the centre of Florence. The room is spacious and includes cooking facilities which is a bonus. Mariateresa was very helpful which was great as it was my first time visiting this beautiful city.
We booked through instant booking. Mariateresa was extremely accommodating and made us feel very, even though we did not get a chance to meet in person. The room is very comfortable and the bed is super cozy. We truly enjoyed our stay. Just two notes... the bathroom is down a hallway from the room, so don;t open the bedroom door naked!!!! Also, if you leave the window open you may get mosquitos.
Mariateresa was very accommodating and patient with us as we were having trouble getting wi-fi to communicate with her. Although we didn't meet her, her flat-mate was a friendly greeter.
Florence is immensely walkable so you can't go wrong with this location that's removed from high tourist areas. The place was bright and clean and just what we needed for our two night stay. While it wasn't a problem for us, be advised that the street can be noisy at night and in the morning, and the wi-fi reception is spotty.
The apartment looks even better in real life than on the pictures. Mariateresa was really kind and helpfull. The apartment is really clean and has everything that is mentioned on the list. The location was also perfect, since you are in a walkable distance from the center (and it's less crowded in this area). Everything was great and i would recommend it to anyone.
We stayed for two nights in Mariateresa's studio, and it was perfect for what we needed. It's clean, the bed is comfortable, there is a kitchen/refrigerator, and the location is awesome. Our major complaint was that we did not have hot water during our entire stay. We contacted Mariateresa the first day and she quickly replied that it would be fixed and apologized for the inconvenience. It was never fixed, but we managed. Other than that, and pretty weak wi-fi in the apartment (it works in the hallway), I recommend this space. The hot water issue was hopefully just a one-time problem because other than that, we had a great stay.
Stayed for 7 days at Sun studio. Great location as is close to major attractions. Clear easy directions provided to find apartment. Made nightly use of ear plugs as is on busy street. Had trouble with internet but was able to connect at hotspots while in Florence when needed. When we asked for items such as salt & pepper and a broom they were quickly provided.
Très agréable séjour dans ce studio très propre et bien équipé. Le logement est proche des sites touristiques et vous trouverez des épiceries à proximité pour vous ravitailler. Seul bémol, la rue est passante du coup difficile de dormir la fenêtre ouverte. Mais les fenêtres ont des doubles vitrage, donc ce n'est pas très grave.
Mariateresa and her partner were excellent guests here at Cabana Pedra Branca. They were both very polite and friendly, happy to have a chat and left the cabin very clean and tidy when they left. I would be happy to have them back here any day.
