Florence Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Florence for only 2 nights, but now wish we had stayed longer! There is just so much to see and do! This apartment is in a great and convenient location and Mery, the owner, was so nice! We were a group of 5 and had plenty of space! 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a common area and kitchen. It can be somewhat drafty when it’s cold outside, but there are extra blankets provided! There is also a washing machine for washing clothes provided! The apartment also has 2 gates to get into it, so the extra security is nice—and you have to check out Mery’s pottery in the store below it!

It can be somewhat noisy at night since you are close to the street, but the trade off is that you are so close to everything! There’s an excellent coffee and pastry shop across the street and you are literally steps from the Ponte Vecchio, a bridge full of jewelry shops and more!

You can walk to Accademia and see David easily in about 15 minutes. There was a line in March, but we got in within 10 minutes! You are also very close to The Pitti Palace, which you have to stop and see!

All in all, this apartment is exactly what you need: affordable, safe, has all the amenities and is close to the attractions that you come to see!

Very hospitable! Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Mery is a wonderful hostess. The accommodations were plenty for our party of 7. The location was just steps from Ponte Vecchio. The lift was great for our multi-generational group. We hope to return to Firenze!

Great Place to Stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed five nights at one of Mery's apartments above the ceramics shop.The apartment was clean, spacious and secure. The location was perfect - situated between Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace on a charming street with many restaurants and shops. It was within easy walking distance of all the attractions in old Florence.

Mery was a great host and very friendly. We enjoyed our conversations with her. She even gave us a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift. Her ceramics shop was great and we bought several pieces from her. Next time we are in Florence, we will definitely stay there again. Thank you, Mery.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The unit has plenty of room, comfortable beds, comfortable bathrooms, very clean. Great communication with owner/management. I read in some reviews is hot, Not really, we stayed there in the middle of the summer, fans are great quality and blow nicely, and if you keep the the shutters down during the day the unit doesn't get hot. Location is excellent.

The only one thing I noticed is the kitchen could have been better stoked.

Spacious, Spotless, Great location, Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Mery, the owner, was a wonderful hostess. She was warm and welcoming, spoke perfect English and had a bottle of wine in the apartment waiting for our arrival.

The apartment is spacious and immaculate and we couldn't ask for a better location, near the Pone Vecchio.

Mery also owns the pottery shop right downstairs, where we picked up hand painted souvenier oil and vinegar bottles.

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence.
