Appartamenti was very good. Air conditioning in all rooms and plenty of space in all rooms. We were all happy with our location and appartment.
Gorgeous place in Florence .. easy check in, and lots of modern conveniences. Clean, light, bright & a great value. You will not find many this awesome!!
What a wonderful place - to be honest, it is quite expensive, but just beautiful and in the heart of the city!
The location of this apartment is very convenient and central to the train station, grocery store, restaurants and tourist attractions - especially the Duomo ....We had 5 in our party ....with lots of room to spread out. The apartment is good size by European & American standards ...everyone had their privacy with room to spread out ...the only down side is no elevator - but after a couple of days - we got use to it .... my 71 year old mom went up and down the stairs daily.
We rented Alfani for 5 days in Dec 2016.
We were 2 couples and 2 young adults and the appartment was perfectly fine.
Very well located, quiet and clean > ut corresponded perfectly to our expectations.
Improvements possible :
-ensure that the flat is warmed-up in winter (it took us a full day to get an appropriate temperature)
-give a litlle bit more "soul" to the renting > it's clear that it is a business but nevertheless, spending and even "losing" a bit of time to explain the environment to newcomers (the good diner places in the neighbour, the closiest market place etc,...) would create a feeling of welcoming (despite the offered bottle of wine, ostentatiously put on the table) that is a bit missing.
The property is conveniently situated, making it a good base from which to explore Florence.
The apartment is well appointed with a thoroughly equipped kitchen for its size, but not quite as luxurious as the photos would suggest. The common areas are spacious, but some of the private areas (main en suite bathroom, upstairs room) are not as roomy. The view of the courtyard is not inspired and is sometimes noisy.
After a long trip to Florence, we were happy to negotiate our way into the apartment to drop our bags at 11am even though we had requested and agreed this well in advance.
We were met by the very accomplished Ashu on arrival. He provided a good overview of the apartment and advice on Florence attractions.
Several of the amenities were not in working order, e.g. broken bedside lamp, missing aircon remotes - nothing to spoil your visit, but just some niggling issues.
We were disappointed at the agents' ability and willingness to make arrangements for leaving our luggage on the day of departure. As a consequence, our last day in Florence was very rushed and rather unpleasant. While we understand and respect the need to clean the apartment for the next guests, some leeway would have been greatly appreciated.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay even though there are some areas for improvement.

The apartment was great overall. It is in a prime location for going to the all the key tourism sites in Florence. We did not need to use our car at all. The apartment is spacious and well appointed, with all necessary amenities. The check-in process was very smooth, and they were very accommodating as to our check-in time. There are supermarkets close by, with a convenience store next door. Also, we found some good restaurants in the neighborhood.
The only issue is that it is a fourth floor unit with no elevator. It was a tough climb with luggage. The young man who came to check us in helped with four bags, and we gave him a €20 tip (US$22+). So, on departure, since the management office was just a few blocks away, I asked them to send one of their young assistants to help with the bags. When he arrived, he asked for €10 (US11+) per bag to bring them down. So, we gave him just two bags to carry. Frankly, I should have been told that this was their going rate for helping with the bags, so that we could decide if we wanted the service or not.
We loved our Florence experience, and our stay overall was magical.
