About Elisa Kollerud

I lived and studied in Florence a long time ago and this is my favorite place on earth. Before buying this apartment I must have been to 30 viewings, without finding what I was looking for;

A light apartment with a balcony, beamed Tuscan style ceiling, a view, situated in the historic center and in a quiet area. Not easy - but I found it!

Elisa Kollerud purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Elisa Kollerud chose San Lorenzo

The location - the style of the apartment - the calm sensation when you enter from the excitement of the city. The fact that it has all the commodities one is accustomed to in the 21 century. Air-conditioning, Internet - WiFi, docking station, dishwasher, washing machine, TV, DVD + selection of DVD's. radio. etc.

Being a historic city there are parking restictions in the city centre. However this apartment is only 50 metrs form the ZTL ( Zone Traffico Limitato ) in addtion there is apaprking garage only 2 min walk in Via San Zanobi. So parking is not a problem!

What makes this apartment unique

Located in the historic centre of Florence. All the major sights within walking distance. Beautifully decorated with attention to detail.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great apartment on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my 2 week stay at Elisa’s apartment. The apartment is very nice and bright (local Italian friends who stopped by one evening loved it), is on a tranquil street close to the historic center and has all the amenities one might need. Between the orientation at check-in and the written information provided, it was easy to use the amenities. While there aren’t 2 separate rooms set up as bedrooms, the living room, bedroom and bath all connect to the kitchen and all have locking doors, so it would be easy to use the sofa bed and folding lounge chair in the living room as a private bedroom space for up to 3 more people. In addition to the small balcony with lines to dry laundry, there’s a small terrace with table and 2 chairs (no views but it’s a nice extra). I’d rate the apartment as near-perfect, with my only minor complaint being that the pillows were too insubstantial for my taste. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent the apartment again, and I may very well do that if it’s available during my next visit to Florence.

Nice flat in quiet street near attractions

  • 4 of 5

I rented the property with a friend. We were under the impression that there were 2 beds meaning 2 bedrooms however only one bedroom with one large bed and a single chair that can be made a single bed. This was the only negative of the place in addition to not having clear explanation on how to make the timer of the air con/heating work.

Overall a good flat near the Academia and other monuments. It took us a little time to realise that we had a straight line to get to the Duomo (7 minutes walking and similarity to get to the train station). Location is great. The flat is nice and clean and Host very helpful. The balcony is tiny and can see the Duomo from it. It is very easy to return to the flat if in need of a rest as very close to the center. It has a small fridge but suffice. A small Carrefour express in that Street too.

I would happily return as location is good and there is a nice comfy feel about the flat (not much electric lights...for reading).

Nathalie... Visited in April 2016. Sorry for late review

Cosy apartment close to historic sentrer

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Via delle Ruote, and couldn't have chosen a better location for our stay in Firenze. The apartment is situated within walking-distance from the city senter, all the sights, and also the main train station, should you be arriving by rail. The neigbourhood had several bars and restaurants to choose from. For groceries, Mercato Centrale (the main market) is 10 mins walk away.

The apartment is tastefully decorated, clean and airy upon arival with quality towels and linen. Keys are handed over by Massimo, who also assured us he was available if we needed assistance. For a stay in Firenze we can recomend this apartment!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. Ideal for visiting historic center. Clean and well-maintained. Climbing 55 stairs was worth the view. Recommendable!

SUPER APPARTEMENT DANS UNE SUPERBE VILLE

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très agréable, magnifiquement décoré, rien de manque même la climatisation bien utile au mois d’août, le plus la vue sur Florence depuis le balcon sur l'arrière de l'appartement. Les explications fournis par Massimo et sont accueil sont très agréable. le stationnement pour un véhicule est facile sous réserve de se mettre à une ou deux rues de l'appartement. La situation géographique de celui-ci fait que vous êtes tous de suite dans le centre de Florence, à moins de 20 minutes à pied du DUOMO, restaurant à proximité, 5 minutes du Mercato central. Nous recommandons cette location.
