Clean, spacious and brilliantly located appartment.

  • 4 of 5

Ilker was waiting for us outside when we arrived and took us up to the apartment. On entering we were surprised by the spaciousness of the apartment. It was clean and well decorated and only a few metres from the Ponte Vechio. We had a great introduction to Florence from Ilker who was very good at communicating with us throughout our stay and willing to help whenever he could e.g. responding very quickly when we managed to lock ourselves out. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars was because of the low level of natural light in rooms other than the bedroom but perhaps this should be expected in this type apartment. We think that the cost of the apartment is very reasonable. The street was surprisingly quiet at night so no problem sleeping.

Wonderful property in Florence

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights during a trip to Florence and Tuscany. We loved this apartment and its location in Florence.

The apartment itself was very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. We enjoyed having a kitchen for preparing breakfast and, since this was part of a longer trip, really appreciated the clothes washer. The layout, with a separate bedroom, a kitchen with a table and some additional seating, and a separate sitting room area with 2 sofas, was probably more space than we needed for 2 of us, and it could be very comfortable for 4 people. There were 2 televisions in the apartment (although we never watched them).

The location was SUPERB - steps from the Ponte Vecchio bridge and in the Oltrarno neighborhood with fabulous shops and restaurants. We walked everywhere in Florence from here, including all the major sites and museums in Florence and even to the train station (Santa Maria Novella) when we departed.

The owner, Ilkay, was wonderful. He was easy to communicate with and very helpful. He met us and gave us a brief orientation to the map when we first arrived and gave us the names of a few restaurants (Trattoria 4 Leoni and 'O Munaciello) we really enjoyed during our stay. He left us a lovely welcome of a bottle of wine, some chocolate, some snacks and few liters of water. Wonderful after a long flight! He also went above and beyond when we needed to receive some documents and helped us take delivery of them from UPS.

We would definitely stay here again on another trip to Florence, and would recommend this apartment (and Ilkay) without reservation!

Very Good Location

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing and conveniently located to shops, restaurants and most importantly, Ponte Vecchio. My Husband and I stayed for three nights and our favorite part was coming back with a bottle of wine ,. The unit has everything you would need to make yourself at home. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.Great communication and a really nice guy.
