“A gem in the heart of Florence”
Reviewed 11 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Having lived in Florence, I'm very picky about where the best place to stay is. I honestly didn't know a rental unit was available in the heart of the most beautiful parts of Florence. This apartment is literally overlooking the Duomo, and less than a minute walk to my all time favorite spot, Piazza della Repubblica. You cannot walk for more than a few seconds without stumbling upon one of the great architectural wonders of Florence, or perhaps a restaurant, bar, pasticceria, gelateria, or spectacular view of art by some great renaissance artist. Mercato San Lorenzo is across the piazza beyond Via Cerretani, and every great monument is in walking distance. The apartment itself is just beautiful. Two lovely bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and a light and modern Kitchen and pull out sofa. The air conditioning units worked perfectly, even by American standards. Note: it's 4 floors above ground floor with no elevator, so plan to get your workout everyday. The only complaint was the washer/dryer was rusted and broken, and nobody responded to my email when I asked what to do. We were so happy with the apartment, we let that slide. Hopefully they'll get that fixed, but if that's an issue for you, ask in advance. I'd definitely stay here again.

“Duomo Delight”

We had a great time in Florence and the apartment was perfect! However, it was always a bit loud late at night with the crowds outside the pizza restaurant, just across the street.

Thanks again,

Craig

“Awesome location”

We stayed at Duomo Red for 5 days. The location is amazing and you can see a part of Duomo from kitchen windows. We really enjoyed sound of Duomo bells while having dinner. Having two bathrooms was a huge bonus. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything you may need even if you decide to cook for yourself on vacation. The only thing is that the apartment is on the top floor with no elevator. So if you have difficulties climbing stairs, take this into consideration.

“Trouble in paradise!”

At first I were very impressed with the efficient manner in which Apartments Florence handle my booking, communicate with me and solve problems. Then the worst thing happen! The guy who checked us in blocked my debit card for breakage fees and told us that the blockage will expire the day after we left. I could have draw money giving me time but it sound good enough. We were 6 in the group and everybody's money were on that card for accommodation and travel and for some members the trip ends on the 18th of February. The card was blocked till the 20 th of February. Luckily my husband could deposit money from Namibia onto another card for us to get by. My husband mailed Apartments Florence, I mailed them as well as whatsapps but nobody answer or respond to us, it was a very difficult position to be in and left me with a red face in the group, they just ignored us because the guy was not honest with us! Therefore I cannot recommend Apartments Florence for holiday rentals. Duomo red was fine except for a filthy washing machine and dishes in the kitchen which we had to wash all over again before we could use them.

Dear Christel,
Thank you for your review on the Duomo Red apartment. This is a stunning two bedroom, modern, bright with a stunning view of the Duomo, that is just around the corner.
According to industry wide accepted standards for Apartment rentals and to our terms and conditions which you accepted at the time of booking, the security deposit is taken as preauthorization. That means we have blocked the card for the amount of 300 euro but the card was still usable for sure. Moreover I have checked and we don't have any communication from you regarding this otherwise we would have happily explain that the card was still usable and only a little amount was blocked. We apologize about the dishwasher situation and as above, had we received a communication from you at the time of check-in we would have dispatched our housekeeping staff immediately. We look forward to your next visit. Apartments Florence staff. Like our Facebook page to see new and exciting listings in the heart of Florence.
Grazie
Apartments Florence Staff

“Such a great location”
Reviewed 27 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Duomo Red is a beautiful apartment in a fantastic location. Bring able to see part of the cathedral and the dome from our lounge windows was spectacular and very special. Loved hearing the church bells in the mornings. The apartment has lots of space and is very well equipped. Great wifi. Lovely and warm, great to have a rack to dry the clothes. Good sized supermarket and train station within walking distance. The checking in process was very easy and efficient. I would highly recommend this apartment.

“Terrific location, with view of Duomo”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment was very well located and within easy walking distance of the main sites. The Duomo can be seen close by, over the rooves.
Apartment was furnished and equipped to really good standard, suitable for all times of the year, with air con and heating if neeeded. Arrival and departure process was very easy. It's the first time we have used a rental, rather than an hotel, but we really liked the flexibility that it gave us.
One word of warning, there are 81 steps up to the apartment, with no lift. The Apartments Florence site does say what floor it is on, however we originally booked through Bookings.com and didn't see anything to show this. It's not for the old or infirm, but the view you get from there is well worth the climb!
