Well appointed apartment in great area

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in the Oltrarno area but very close to Ponte Vecchio in one of the best streets in Firenze. Ilker was very prompt in corresponding with us and very easy to deal with. We were shown the apartment by Devrim. She was wonderful and took the time to explain everything to us. The building has a lift which is very convenient for luggage and after long day walking. Just make sure you close both doors on the lift after exiting to make sure it works for the residents who rely on it. All rooms were great in the apartment and it had all you needed. The area has a Conad supermarket about 50 metres away and a great little cafe within 30m called Caffe Le Corri to get takeaway coffee, panini, pizza etc or eat there. In the San Spirito square there are some great restaurants away from the main tourist area. The bedroom has an outside shutter that can be wound up and down to reduce the light into the apartment in the morning and provide privacy. I’d recommend the visit to Piazalle Michelangelo late in the afternoon and then perhaps a drink or dinner in the San Nicollo neighbourhood nearby on the way back to the apartment. Thanks Ilker for a great stay and professional dealings.

central y cómodo

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento está bastante bien equipado y en una zona buenísima, justo al otro lado del Ponte Vecchio y a 200m del Palazzo Pitti. Los anfitriones muy amables, esperándonos a la llegada (a pesar de ser tarde) y bastante atentos recomendándonos lugares a visitar. Repetiría sin duda.

Ilkay was great host, giving us all information necessary. The flat is at an excellent and convenient location, just few steps to Ponte Vecchio. My family and I have had a great time during our stay. It's very clean and beautifully decorated too!!! Highly recommended.

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.
