We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. We were made to feel very welcome with a well-stocked kitchen and bathroom and complimentary bottle of wine, and plenty of information about what to see and do around Florence. The apartment is up one flight of stairs, but even though we are a pair of retired ladies we managed these okay.
The apartment is in the heart of the city, with a wealth of trattorias and restaurants only steps away from your door. The only downside of this is that it could be noisy at night, if you didn't use the thoughtfully provided wax ear plugs that the landlord leaves on the bedside table. Truthfully, there is probably no place in the heart of Florence that will not have night noise from bars and restaurants, and these little wax babies really work a treat! There is double glazing on the windows, but a large part of the noise comes from street cleaning vehicles! The area is very safe - or at least we felt that way, and we would certainly highly recommend this apartment to anyone who can manage a flight of stairs.
