Perfect location to explore Florence

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by how close this apartment was to the center of old Florence, and to the locations we wanted to visit. We had great restaurants right on our street, as well as a mini-market. And it was a 1 minute walk to the Duomo. We all highly recommend this apartment.

Great location near the Duomo -- very functional

  • 5 of 5

Just great for our one night stay - more space than we needed, but it had everything required to make our stay an excellent experience.

Total dissappointed...wasted a whole day...missed our tour!!!

  • 1 of 5

Called Nadia @12:05 to announce we were there , we'd catch a bite and meet her in front of the building at 2pm. I contacted her the day before telling her we'd be there early but totally understood check in was 2pm. For those lousy 5 minutes she made us wait til 3:30pm. We had luggage which wasn't allowed on tour bus. Then I called after 3:30. No one came yet so I messaged Nadia again explain I would call home away and get a hotel since the check in guy "didn't" live there. Mind you, we made friends with the Leather vendor across the street & never left. 10 minutes later the door opened & he asked if I was Toni- The man reeked of stale booze & the floors were wet. We are 2 - 60 +overweight woman & the guy made us walk up the steps with our luggage never showing us the elevator or how it works. The color scheme was different , unfinished bathroom, toilet ran & we opted to sleep above the comforter & wrap in that. This was the 2nd home we rented in 8 days that was disappointing

Needs new mattresses

  • 2 of 5

The place is quiet and clean, the location is central, but I would not stay here again even at half the price. All the mattresses sag. I did not sleep well.

Great location, great apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 2-night stay in Florence and would highly recommend Nadia's apartment near the Duomo! We were met by Nadia's brother-in-law (Samon) who was very nice and helpful showing us the apartment. The apartment was very spacious, beds were comfortable, and we had everything needed for our stay. The grocery store nearby was well stocked and we cooked breakfast one morning; otherwise we went out to eat. We had a great authentic Tuscan meal at a restaurant nearby, enjoyed shopping and walking (bought some great Italian sandals!), but felt like we were in our own world once in the apartment. We did do a load of laundry and unfortunately the washer took about 3 hours for a load. BUT on the upside, with the ceiling fans (that were quite loud) spinning madly and the heat of the apartment in June, it didn't take long for the clothes to dry on the great drying rack we found in a closet! Nadia's apartment is located on the 2nd floor but there is an elevator which was a lifesaver for our suitcases. The wifi works best while sitting at the desk in the central part of the apartment.

The highlight of our Florence trip was the beautiful leather we brought home with us!!! Don't miss the open air leather market within an easy 10 minute walk from the apartment.

We would definitely stay at Nadia's apartment again. The reason we gave 4 stars (and not 5) was due to the heat we experienced in June, loud fans overhead while sleeping, and lack of air conditioning. If you are traveling any time other than summer I'm sure it would be quite comfortable!
