This modern apt with Tuscan charm was in a great location and had wifi and a/c. The owner was easy to work with and sent Filip to meet us for check in. The only improvements needed are to have appliance instructions and warnings about power usage. We tripped the breakers twice while running a/c and hair dryer. Never did figure out stove, so were unable to cook. Otherwise it was great.Reasonable price, near coffee shop, stores, Via Cavour and San Lorenzo Market.
This was my first visit to Florence and my first time staying in a pensione. This apartment is extremely well located; an easy walk to so many of the sights and to the train station. I can't say enough good things about the location.
The person was there waiting for us upon arrival, the apartment is clean and spacious. We were just sleeping there, not cooking. The kitchen and living areas are small but I suspect the norm for the area. We got a little food in for breakfast but otherwise took all of our meals at restaurants.
The only things I would consider needing improvement are this: there were no Kleenex in the apartment and we almost ran out of toilet paper. But maybe the expectation is that we supply our own. We were only there for three nights. Also, a second set of towels would have been nice but again, perhaps I am looking for more "hotel" service than I should.
There is a washing machine which was great!
Overall, this was easy to stay at and a definite cost savings during our 10 day visit to Italy.
They also had good wifi!
This flat has comfortable rooms and a well equipped kitchen space with a washing machine in the unit. It is within easy walking to many of the favorite sites of Florence (Basilica, market, Accademia Gallery) as well as restaurants and grocery stores. The biggest downside is that it is on a very very busy street with lots of traffic and people noise.
Cute apartment in a great location. Very easy to communicate with Tommaso ahead of our visit. Isabella met us there and gave us a map and suggestions for restaurants and activites. She was very nice and spoke excellent English. The only downside is that at night you can hear a lot of noise from the street, especially on weekends when there are a lot of people out late. If you are there, try La Vezza, the restaurant across the street.
Great location - blocks (not miles) from the train station and the Duomo

A few small problems with apartment but taken care of.
Lovely location- main attractions in Florence all walking distance. Apartment modern and clean with all you need to be self-sufficient, with hosts very friendly and helpful.
This apartment was fantastic! We fell in love with it the minute we walked in. We were greeted by Ceclia who was wonderful and showed me very specifically how everything worked (air conditioner, washing machine , dishwasher, etc.).
The location is so perfect for walking to all the main attractions in Florence and very close to Mercado Centrale – where we visited almost every day for either a morning café or evening glass of wine and cheese. It is also very close to the main train station where it was easy for us to take day trips directly to Siena and Pisa. Go to the italiarail website and you can see that there are direct trains everywhere from Firenze SMN .
We were a family of 5 that fit very comfortably and safely in the apartment. Everything was very clean – including the towels and sheets. The comforters were still wrapped in plastic so I knew they had just been washed. The bathrooms had great showers with hot water and strong pressure. We only used the air conditioners at night, but they were sufficient even in the August heat. I was a bit worried about the loft being too hot – but it was really fine.
It is true there is a flight of stairs to get up to the apartment as others mention, but they are wide and not unusually steep
We were seen off by Isabella who offered to order us a taxi to the airport which was very helpful as well.
I would stay at this apartment again for sure, and highly recommend it. It was really perfect for us, and was exactly as it looks in the photos.
