Awesome apartment so close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect! The location was so close to everything and the host, Devrim was wonderful and so very helpful with tips and suggestions. We really enjoyed this apartment and wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else when returning to Firenze!

Muito bem.

  • 5 of 5

Apesar de nao termos sido recebidos pelo Ilkay, uma amiga dele estava à nossa espera. Ela recebeu-nos de forma muito calorosa e foi muito prestavel, dando todas as indicaçoes importantes. Durante a estadia o Ilkay preocupou-se em manter-se em contacto, garantido que tudo estava bem. A casa é tal como descrita, grande (eramos so 3, mas cabiam perfeitamente 5 pessoas), com ar condicionado em todas as divisões e muito bem localizada (mesmo junto à ponte vecchio, o que permitiu um facil acesso a todos os pontos importantes da cidade). Recomendamos vivamente e se voltarmos a Florença nao hesitaremos em voltar a ficar aqui.

A too few days in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well appointed, clean apartment very near the Ponte Vecchio bridge and most sights. Note: Ponte Santa Trinita(close by and an excellent gelateria Santa Trinita in on the corner) was a better bridge for getting back and forth over the Arno. Ponte Vecchio is very congested. Cafe Neri just around the corner was my go-to for espresso. Owner somehow picked us out of dozens of people on the streets. This was very intuitive, or more likely that we must have stood out. He also responded within minutes of any questions we had.

Very Slient and Very close Ponte Vecchio

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment, great location, furnished kitchen, very comfortable beds for adults. We lived like a local, but accessed the city like a tourist. Best combination!

Loved this apartment!

  • 4 of 5

The location is fantastic -- central to all the major sites. The apartment was clean and spacious and perfect for our needs. We ran into wifi problems but learned the wifi works in the front sitting area only, not the kitchen and bedroom. Like everywhere else in Italy, it's noisy during the night but we would definitely stay there again. The owner İlker was attentive and we thank him for a great stay in Firenze.
