“Everything was perfect!”

We stayed here only one night ... unfortunately !
The apartment is new, just renovated, very close to the center and Barbara welcomed us like we were her relatives. I want to thank her because she was really nice in giving us all sorts of information, even before we arrived she sent me helpful material to reach the apartment, and was always willing to accommodate every request. So she made us feel pampered!
The house is definitely convenient for 4 guests, furnished with attention in every detail. In the lounge there is a sofa bed very large with TV and air conditioning. There are available for guests city maps and brochures, as well as a very detailed guide with the rules and instructions of the house.
We rested really well, the bedroom overlooks the back of the house that is quiet, so during the night it was not necessary to turn on the air conditioning, but we've just left open a little the window. The mattress is really comfortable!

The bathroom although a little 'tight is equipped with everything you need: soap, shampoo, cotton pads for makeup, cotton fiock and even a kit with razor and shaving foam for men.
In the kitchen there is the need for breakfast and is equipped to be able to cook.
To highlight is surely the location of the apartment easily reached by car (is just outside the ztl zone) but also the convention that Barbara has activated with the garage a few meters from home, were we have left our car at very affordable daily rates.
Certainly recommended, we sure come again.

Dear Francesca,
thank you for the review.
I am so glad you and your husband were comfortable and found everything to your liking. You and your husband are so polite and left the apartment in perfect conditions. It was a pleasure for me to welcome you and hope you will return to Florence as soon as possible.

Looking forward to welcoming you again to Petrarca Apartment!

Thank you,
Barbara

Cher Pierre, je vous remercie d'être nos invités et pour la review que vous avez quitté. Je suis heureux que vous avez apprécié l'appartement et notre accueil. Je suis vraiment désolé que vous avez passé tant pour le stationnement et n'avez pas suivi nos instructions, car notre garage coûte 25 € par jour, pas 48 €, et n'est pas dans la zone de trafic limité. Cordialement, Barbara
