“Not what we expected”
Reviewed November 12, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Unfortunately the apartment was not as nice as the photos on line led us to believe. The furnishings were quite tired. Sofas were not very comfortable and the slipcovers weren't very high quality. A number of handles pulled off as we tried to open drawers and in one case, a door. The beds are very hard and the linens not good quality. We were expecting 4 or 5 star accommodations based on the photos and the price but didn't feel like we got that. Ultimately I wished we had stayed at the hotel next door -- the Lungarno. With all that said, the view is gorgeous --- right on the Arno! We got used to the apartment as we were there nearly a week but I wouldn't return.

“Fantastic location and what a view!”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were two retired couples who shared the apartment. Access to the apartment was either in a small elevator that opened right into the apartment or a via a staircase. Two bedrooms were in the rear of the apartment with a bathroom right outside their entrance. These bedrooms are on the back street. The other bedroom was towards the front with an en suite bathroom that also opened out into the hallway. This bedroom faced a center courtyard and there was a restaurant and other buildings surrounding this. The kitchen, although small, had enough tools to cook a simple meal. It did not have a coffee pot that was large enough, considering that this is a 3-bedroom apartment, so we had to keep making pots. The living room/dining room was very spacious, although the furniture was not very comfortable. We did appreciate having the room to stretch out and found this much better than being stuck on a bed in a hotel room.

The view of the Arno and the bridges was spectacular. We very much enjoyed watching the crew boats row by throughout the day and the lights of central Florence were beautiful at night. There is a snack shop right across the street for a quick espresso or light lunch or breakfast item. We enjoyed Mama Gina restaurant for two dinners and it was also across from the entrance to the building. There was an excellent fresh fruit and vegetable market down on the corner and only two blocks in the opposite direction was the Ponte Vecchio. We love Florence and I would stay in this apartment again.

Tips: understand that these buildings are ancient and therefore there will be noise at night. Footsteps from apartment dwellers above and street noise will most likely be an issue. I strongly recommend the use of ear plugs!
