About the property

Elegant and luxury apartment with terrace and view on the DUOMO.

Del Co' is a charming and well-appointed apartment of 80 sqm located in the center of Florence, a few steps from the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. It is completely renovated and very quiet. It presents a mix between the modern and the past.

The modern part, with parquet floors and Venetian stucco walls, is composed of a large and welcoming entrance, endowed with led colorful floor to welcome the guests, 1 bathroom with a large shower and 1 with bathtub with chromo therapy, 2 double bedrooms, one with a view of the Duomo and Campanile of Giotto.

The oldest part, with beautiful tiled floors in cotto and ceiling with beams, is composed of a large well-furnished living room with sofa bed and a wide cooking angle. From the windows you can admire the Duomo, the Campanile di Giotto and the Torre del Bargello. From the stairs you can reach a relaxing garret-area with chair and window where we can admire Palazzo Vecchio. A splendid terrace completes the apartment on the roofs of Florence, with a breathtaking sight of the Duomo, the Campanile of Giotto and the Church of Orsammichele.

Large and convenient but dirty

  • 2 of 5

The location, views, terrace, and size of the apartment are terrific, but that's where it ends. I sent these concerns to the owner, but did not receive a response or any action. Thus, I will share my thoughts here for others to consider:

1) Many of the towels were stained

2) The door panel on the dishwasher was missing

3) The walls were dirty and marked. The unit was dusty and the decorative pillows on the couch and beds were dirty.

4) The bathrooms need a significant cleaning to remove mold

5) The outlet/switch plate in one of the bathrooms was broken (smashed in) and dangerous...especially for children

6) Neither bathroom outlet was working so we had to use hair appliances in the bedrooms

7) The closet in one of the bedrooms is a mess and unusable

8) The water kettle was disgusting, we were not able to make hot beverages

9) Several bricks in the kitchen flooring were loose and dangerous

10) Shades were broken making it difficult to get privacy or block light.

11) The tub shower handle to control the water is broken.

Truly, it's a shame the unit has gotten into such disrepair. It could be lovely. Please note it is a walk-up building with approximately 76 steep stairs to climb.

Wonderful Location

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our week long stay in Florence. This was our second time visiting the city, so we knew this location would be ideal. The apartment is very comfortable and within minutes of all major monuments/cathedrals. Luca greeted us & was very friendly/helpful in getting situated. The rooftop terrace was definitely the best feature. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms perfect. The only downside was that 3 of the 4 chairs on the terrace dining set were broken, a few loose tiles in the living room, some weird build up at the bottom of the kettle and a cup/plate were chipped. The apartment definitely shows it's continued use but we would stay again. As mentioned by other reviews, the stairs are a bit of a climb. We are a fit couple & didn't have an overall problem but can see how someone with mobility issues could have an issue.

Nice apartment, but nothing more

  • 2 of 5

The rooftop space and view of the Duomo were fantastic. Beyond that, this apartment had a number of issues. 75 steps up to the front door. We were warned, but still that's not an easy hike with any amount of luggage. We avoided coming home during the day because of the climb. The water pressure wasn't strong enough to use two showers simultaneously or even a sink and a shower together. There were no amenities whatsoever. No soap no trash bags. The owner refused to help make a dinner reservation which I understand is not required but would have been a huge help to us. Location and view were great, everything else was lacking.

Fantastic location in nicely remodeled apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this Florence apartment. The location was just perfect for us, right in the middle of everything. The most amazing feature of the apartment is the views of the Duomo - it is really more impressive than the photos show. There is a fantastic private view terrace with jaw-dropping views of the Duomo and the sounds of its beautiful bells. Unfortunately, we were there in January, so really too cold to use the terrace, but I'd love to come back in summertime to sip wine up there. Having two bathrooms really made the space more convenient for our group of 6. The kitchen is small - I wouldn't cook meals there (but you're in Italy; why cook in?!), but it was serviceable for quick breakfast and evening wine and cheese. The only downside to this apartment, and it wasn't for us, is the number of steps required to get up from the street (on the 4th floor). If you had someone who had limited mobility, it would be a challenge. I would love to come back and stay at this apartment again!

Great location, fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment in Florence. The view from the roof terrace was amazing and the location was perfect, very central so we were able to walk to everything. The apartment itself was very clean and modern inside; there are a number of steps (around 75) to get to the apartment, but our children managed fine with this and it was worth it for the wonderful view of the Duomo from the top!
