Nice apt in good location
The apt is an easy walk (10 minute) from SM train station. It is also a great location to see all the tourist sites in Florence. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops are just steps away. Our hostess, Chiara was super friendly. She showed us around the apt.and gave us local information. Also included was an Italian cell phone to use for local calls and to call her for any questions or assistance. The apt was nicely appointed and clean. There was a lovely bottle of red and some munchies welcoming us when we arrived.
Comfortable Apartment in Great Location
We loved Chiara's apartment.
Even though we had a flight delay and arrived quite late on our arrival date, Chiara cheerfully greeted us, and showed us how to use all the appliances, where everything was located in the apartment, etc.
The basket of goodies that Chiara gave us, especially the bottle of wine, was greatly appreciated.
The information book Chiara provided was detailed and had lots of info about the sites, restaurants and Mass times in Florence--lots of helpful information.
The apartment was clean and the bed comfy, and, even though we didn't cook, the kitchen had everything you would need if you wanted to cook meals.
We loved the location--very close to the Central Market, the Duomo--we could easily walk to the Florence museums and other sites.
We would definitely stay in this apartment again.
Great location, great property, great service
The apartment was perfect. Just as described in the listing. Location was excellent - we walked everywhere in the city. We ran into a problem with one of the appliances that broke during our stay. The owner acted quickly, called a service person and it was fixed the next day - with her apologies. Highly recommend this apartment.
This a clean and well proportioned apartment. It's a nice sitting room and a good sized bedroom and bed. It is very quiet at night after an exhausting day touring. The location is excellent close to the destinations and plenty of dining options right outside your door.
Florence is a very walkable city so enjoy.

Perfect location! Charming apartment!
My husband and I spent 5 nights in this apartment in May and could not have been happier. It's ideally located within easy walking distance of all the major sights and train station. There are lots of good restaurants, bars, coffee shops and gift shops in the surrounding few blocks. The large and comfortable bed with plenty of pillows was nice to come home to at night. Kitchen was well stocked and the owner, Chiara, even left wine, pasta, sauce, cheese and cookies for us! She greeted us warmly and showed us how everything worked in addition to giving us a book which she had compiled which would answer many questions we might have during the visit, as well as suggesting sights, activities and restaurants. She arranged for the cab the night before our departure and it was at our door promptly at 7AM the next morning. We had a wonderful time at in every respect and would definitely stay here again if we return. Thanks for everything, Chiara!
Central location perfect host!

We recommend this apartment enthusiastically.
Casa molto bella. Pulita, host disponibile, cestino di benvenuto per uno spuntino appena arrivate a casa per accoglierci. Ve la consiglio vivamente.
Very nice apartment. Clean, nice greeter and welcome basket with snacks for us when we arrived. We recommend this apartment enthusiastically.
Our accommodations were wonderful! Not only did we have a great location, close to the train, Duomo, and other sites, but the laundry room was stocked with laundry detergent. This was a welcome surprise.
After over a week traveling in other parts of Italy, we were ready for something different for dinner. We found a lovely Indian Restaurant, Royale India Ristorante at Via Guelfa 90/R. The chicken and lamb were so tender, better than some of the places we'd eaten in London.
This property was listed on Home Away and administered by Italy Perfect. Italy Perfect requires the tenant to do more than what we're accustomed to with other Home Away rentals. Providing copies of our passports and paying local hospitality taxes in cash at check in was different. The other Italian Home Away property we stayed at didn't require these.
[We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We do advertise the apartment on HomeAway. It is important to know that presentation of your passport & payment of local hospitality tax is required by Italian law. Our properties comply with the law. If you rented elsewhere in Italy & the property didn't charge you any hospitality tax or obtain your passport information it is likely an illegal rental. The Italian authorities are cracking down on tax avoiders, you might want to bring that to HomeAway's attention. - The Italy Perfect Team]
Great, bright, clean apartment, friendly owner. Top notch kitchen, comfy living room with view of the hills, comfortable beds. On the fourth floor - the steps were a great workout. The neighborhood is close in, neighborhood restaurants and groceries easy to access. The great neighborhood provides easy access, but the traffic on the street is a bit noisy. I had an excellent stay and highly recommend the apartment!
