Magnificent view from this penthouse, close to Ponte Vecchia, Palazzo Pitti and Piazza San Spirito

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent view from this penthouse apartment. It is a 3-floor walk-up so your legs & lungs will get a good workout. The space is compact but very workable for 2 to 4 persons (2 bedroom, 2 bathroom). Owner was quick to respond to a couple questions we had about kitchen equipment unfamiliar to us & with tricky key/lock.

Apartment is close to Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and other main attractions in Florence. You are 2 minute walk to the River Arno for beautiful views & people watching. We really warmed to the nearby Piazza San Spirito (5-minute walk) - many shops, bars & patios with tasty treats, good wine & beer. This is a true neighbourhood square with locals in the bars, kids playing & walking dogs. Authentic Italian!

Overall, not that great

  • 2 of 5

Good:

- Location

- Views

Bad:

- Electricity tripped more than 10 times during our two night stay - to reset it you need to leave the apartment and go down a flight of stairs ... not good if it's in the dark.

- Towel rails in both bathrooms not working

It was disappointing and Martina did not call us or contact us to inquire about our stay!

Modern Apartment; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Nicely remodeled apartment in a great location. All modern conveniences in the kitchen and bathroom. Great location and view. Easy walk to the center of Florence and the train station. Be prepared for the 88 steps from street level to the apartment. Highly recommend Martina's apartment and plan to call her for my next visit to Florence.

Lovely flat, well-positioned for all the sights

  • 4 of 5

A clean, bright, modern flat high up in the eaves of the building with views out over the rooftops. Beautifully cool - so refreshing after a hot day sightseeing - and just a short walk from the Uffizi and Duomo. We arrived by train and walked from the station in around 15 minutes. Local shops provided everything we needed for breakfasts and lunches and there were plenty of restaurants within easy reach for dinner. Worth noting that the flat is four floors up with no lift so worth fuelling up at the excellent gelaterie on the corner before taking up your luggage.
