A very central location. Everything's at a stones' throw.
Excellent location and no need for any car. The major train station Firenze SMN, is at a walking distance. All the Major attractions are around_ the Duomo, Academia museum, Uffizi gallery, Ponte Vecchio , Pitti Palace , Boboli Gardens , Piazza Michael Angelo, and Midici Ricardi museum and palace are all walking distance. Would hardly imagine a place so ideal for any tourist. The property itself has a classic 17th century touch. The apartment is tidy and cosy. Landi and Gianni, lend a personal touch and are a superb hosts. Wishing them all the best.

Conveniently located and pleasant apartment
Overall the stay was very comfortable and pleasant. Location is very convenient to many tourist spots and especially worthwhile for anyone considering taking the train. Surprisingly you can hear late night time noises from outside. There is one quirkiness about this building...after getting off the elevator, there is another 20 +/- steps to the top floor where the apartment is actually located...so be ready to haul your luggages (^^)

Our family of 8 stayed in Florence for three nights and this apartment could not have been more perfect. We were able to enjoy breakfast together in the morning before heading out to see the city and it was easy to stop back "home" any time during the day to regroup or recoup. Evenings were also easy since there are many nice restaurants within an easy stroll and one night we cooked dinner in. The train station is very close as is a secure parking structure if you arrive by car. The apartment is very quiet and the beds very comfortable so we got a good nights sleep. Hope to be back some day.

Great Location/Lovely Apartment
The location was ideal. It was close to the train station as well as Ponte Vecchio and beautiful Florence. We enjoyed the layout of the apartment as there was plenty of room for all of us (2 adult children, my mother, husband and I). It was well appointed with everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. We were able to have coffee, and happily were able to get some necessary laundry done. The building is charming, and it was wonderful being able to leave and quickly find an espresso, or someplace for a meal or to go and see important sites in Florence. Donatella is accommodating and lovely to deal with. I would definitely stay again and recommend it.

Best location ever!
We found the unit to be clean and well appointed. The location makes up for any problems. The owner supplied coffee for the Nespresso machine, a book of recommendations and we were given directions to the closest market. The apartment has plenty of space for quiet time and the kitchen was ideal. We were able to figure out the hot/cold water in the shower and had no problem with that. The T.V. is nice but we never used it. The stairs might be difficult for someone with a disability but otherwise we didn't find it problematic. We would stay here again in an instant.
