If I could give this apartment more than 5 stars I would. The location was perfect. Walking distance to all main attractions. The Duomo was less than 5 minutes away. Lovely shops and restaurants nearby. Very clean and well appointed apartment. It is as beautiful as the pictures reflect. The host Lorenzo was a wonderful host from the beginning of when we made the booking and throughout our entire stay. He could not have been more kind and helpful. Lorenzo met us at the apartment and was so helpful to ensure we had everything we needed and a welcome bottle of lovely wine and fresh fruit! He made some excellent restaurant recommendations for places nearby that we would not have known about. We had such a wonderful stay in Florence. I highly recommend this lovely apartment in beautiful Florence!
My family and I just returned from our stay in Florence. The apartment is decorated beautifully and as shown in the pictures. You walk out your front door and you're in the middle of Florence. Everything is close. The owner met us and was so helpful in getting us settled in. He graciously helped with our bags when we arrived. He booked our taxi for our departure and again, helped with our bags. He had a map for us of Florence and gave us recommendations on places to eat. The apartment has everything you will need and he directed us to a market really close by. I had my morning coffee on the balcony. What a treat! We will return! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Appartamento Pontevecchio is in the perfect location to explore all of Florence's main tourist attractions with a convenient parking garage located a few streets away. Directly across from the Piazza Mercato Nuovo (Porcellino) and just around the corner from Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi, the comfortable beds, fresh linens and towels, a well-equipped kitchen as well as a quiet, efficient air conditioner all made this a welcoming haven in the middle of the busy city. Lorenzo, our host, could not have been more accommodating, even meeting us the first day to lead us to the parking garage (no problem getting there on our own afterwards). The frescoed apartment walls and other decorating touches were greatly appreciated as well as the welcoming bottle of wine, roses and fruit that awaited us upon our arrival. Being in the middle of this city is great but noise can be a problem at night especially on weekends even with double--paned windows, so definitely bring earplugs. However, it isn't just here, it's pretty much noisy at night in any of the prime downtown areas. Sunday through Thursday nights weren't too bad at all, actually; Friday and Saturday were the worst. All in all, it was a great place with a very supportive host. Absolutely, we would come back again.
If you are looking for a central location, spotlessly clean, modern bathrooms, comfortable beds and excellent service from the owner ....... this is the one!
A spacious, beautifully newly refurbished apartment where air conditioning and showers all work perfectly and the double glazed windows shut out the noise of the street.
Lorenzo the helpful owner was outside to meet us on arrival, recommended restaurants to us and told us where to shop for great leather bargains!
Our city break in Florence was enhanced by staying in this beautiful apartment.
An excellent choice!
Our favourite pizzeria for organic pizza was Simbiosi and the restaurant at the Michaelangelo Plaza is a great place for cocktails while watching the sun set over Florence.
Well done Lorenzo for presenting a beautiful apartment in the centre of Florence!!!
Thank you Lorenzo for providing such great hospitality for the four of us in your terrific apartment in the heart of Florence. You were so nice to greet us with a bottle of wine and suggestions for dinner for our time in the city. The apartment could not have been more convenient to all of the central spots in Florence, and I can't imagine a better place to watch people than your balcony overlooking the square. We will certainly see you again if we return to Florence!

We stayed at this beautiful apartment during our stay in Florence. We were travelling with our 3 grown up children and the apartment was perfect. It is 2 minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge and very close to all the other attractions. The apartment is simply gorgeous and I would love to stay again. Lorenzo was so so helpful before and during our stay and he had even remembered that we were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary and bought us a beautiful bottle of wine and roses. I cannot imagine anywhere being better than this apartment and thank you Lorenzo for making it so special!
