The space

Located in Santo Spirito, Ciclamino is a bright, breezy and colorful rooftop apartment with panoramic views from Boboli Gardens to Bellosguardo and ending at Porta Romana. Inside the newly renovated 4th floor (65 sqmt) apartment, there is a comfortable atmosphere with newer and older furnishings for a relaxing visit.
Ciclamino is a true two bedroom apartment with high wood ceilings that can easily sleep four and possibly two more additional guest on a pull out couch.

One of the bedrooms has a double bed, while the other has a single bed that can convert to a double bed. The two bedrooms have air conditioners, if needed, for a pleasant sleep. Palazzo Pitti and Ponte Vecchio are just a five minute walk away.

The Duomo and the other monuments are about a 20 minutes walk. At the end of your day come back to Santo Spirito, which is much less touristy than other parts of the city and experience the real Florence.

This building was built in the 1500’s and as such, does not have a lift, however the beautiful views are more than worth it.

This is a great apartment within easy walking distance (6 mins) of Ponte Vecchio. It is in a quiet residential part of Florence n the area where real locals dine so you have great food right on the doorstep at non-tourist prices. The place is clean and tidy, all communication was of the highest level and we were greeted at the apartment on arrival. Be aware that you've got to climb four flights of stairs to reach the apartment but this gives your rooftop views, great light, and peace and quiet. We travelled in from Pisa on the train and it took us about 25-30 mins to walk (with our luggage) from Florence station to the apartment

We had a lovely stay in Ciclamino. The flat was finished to a high standard, was spotless and felt homely. Diana and her team were very helpful and although we didn't call upon them during our stay, they made it clear that we could get in touch about anything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed was excellent quality and there was plenty of storage for clothes and personal effects. It was also great to have a TV with accessible channels. We loved the area around Santo Spirito. It was a lot less touristy than the other side of the Arno; very atmospheric and still had thriving local craftspeople and businesses. It definitely made you feel you had experienced the real Florence. We ate at some great local restaurants and being able to peek in doorways and see people making shoes or picture frames or bookbinding was a treat. I would definitely revisit Ciclamino. We left in a rush on the Sunday as I got very confused with the clocks changing! But ideally I'd have liked to have enjoyed one more leisurely breakfast in this lovely flat overlooking the rooftops, in the Tuscan sun!

We absolutely loved this flat. My two cousins and I stayed here for 8 days. We were pleasantly surprised as the pictures don't do it justice. It's modern and beautiful. It's in a great part of town that isn't overrun with tourists, but just a 5 minute walk to the areas that are (because that can be fun as well). A couple blocks from a great yoga studio, a supermarket, tons of bars and restaurants, and Pitti Palace with the Boboli Gardens. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I have stayed in Florence on many occasions and this apartment is at the top of the list for future visits. It is great! Diana and her team were extremely helpful in communication, meeting us, giving us keys and a tour of the apartment. We communicated with Diana using "What's App". It's a great free texting app. Diana answered text quickly and had great suggestions. The apartment is a "real" two bedroom, newly remodeled apartment with wonderful panoramic views from every window. I say "real" because we have stayed in other two bedrooms in Florence, where space has been created in a loft or other area for a bed to be uncomfortably crammed into. The bedrooms here are large, bright and separate. The beds were relaxing and easy to sleep on. The bedrooms are air conditioned and that was much appreciated. Summer in Florence can get hot and humid. Storage was not an issue with wardrobes and drawers for all of our clothes. There are up to fifteen foot high wood ceilings giving this apartment a wonderful open feel. There are windows in every room allowing a breeze to travel through. My wife especially liked the light in the morning for our coffee and breakfast. The bathroom is large and long and has all the conveniences you would expect. The tile work and flooring appear brand new. It has a large shower, but no bath. The open kitchen has all new appliances. It is fully supplied with everything you would possibly need to cook or eat. It sits above the dining area, which was great since you can still have a conversation with anyone cooking. The living room area has great couch and the television has Netflix, which was great to relax in front of after a long day of walking through town. We walked to all of the Florence monuments from our location. It is five minutes walk to Pitti Palace, ten minutes to Ponte Vecchio and twenty minutes to the Duomo. The nice part about staying in Santo Spirito is that it has not become completely touristy. There is a market that sets up in the square in front of Santo Spirito in the morning. As my wife, our companion and myself walked around, my wife whispered to me, "Most people here are speaking Italian". You don't here find that a lot in a city that get millions of visitors from around the world. There are a multitude of great restaurants and bars within a short walk.

Estancia muy agradable. Nos recibió Alessandra , muy amable y dándonos todo tipo de indicaciones tanto de la casa como para visitar la ciudad. Apartamento acogedor. Tras el día visitando la ciudad se agradece la comodidad de sus camas. Utensilios de cocina de todo tipo, solo echamos de menos un microondas. Handy es un tremendo acierto, una ayuda que se hizo imprescindible para pasear, localizar destinos, reservar.... New Ciclamino totalmente recomendable. Gracias Diana y sobre todo a Alessandra. Volveremos
