The studio is just 5 minutes walking from Piazza Santa Croce and a little more from Piazza della Signoria, where it is Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi'll be surrounded by the beauty of the ancient downtown of Florence!!
With a few minutes of pleasant walk you'll be in Piazza del Duomo, where there is Campanile di Giotto and Battistero, San Lorenzo Basilica and Market, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti.
The studio is very close to the School of Architecture and Biblioteca Nazionale.

The space

The loft is very nice, bright, quiet and on the 3rd floor, under the roof. The peculiarity of this place is the fully exposed Tuscan-style roof, with wooden beams, where there are two skylights that make the environment airy and very bright.
Equipped with stylish decor and characterized by its natural light from above, it's the perfect combination of function, comfort and a good location in Historic downtown.
Ideally suited for today’s business or leisure travelers, you’ll have all the privacy you need.

There is a living open space, with terracotta floor, at the entrance of the studio. Here you can find a sofa, TV and a large wardrobe where you can put your clothes.

A part of the living open space is the kitcken area. There is a table with chairs and a kitchenette, with Carrara marble countertop, that is equipped with fridge and microwave oven. There are dishes, water glasses and wine glasses, mags, little caps, cutlery, pots and essentials.
This area is also illuminated by a window overlooking a little courtyard inside the building.

In the cozy and bright sleeping space, on the mezzanine, there is a comfortable queen sized bed for 2 people with a new mattress. It will be prepared for your stay with freshly washed, ironed and scented bed sheets.
It's under the Tuscan-style roof and a skylight makes the environment airy and bright.

In the windowed bathroom, covered with Carrara marble tiles, there are a washbasin, WC and a comfortable shower. You'll find freshly washed towels and a shower mat, some shower-shampoo and essentials.

Free internet Wi-Fi, air conditioning and heating.

Whilst this light, clean apartment is centrally located it is also quiet which was a bonus. Massimiliano is a wonderful host going out of his way to provide helpful tips and advice on Florence. Highly recommended

Massimiliano went above and beyond to ensure we had a good stay in Florence. His place is small but perfectly formed, the bed is comfy and the air-con was very welcome! The perfect pad for exploring Florence. Thank you for all your help, and for helping us to the bus stop early the next day!

We had a fabulous stay in this apartment just a stones throw away from the main sites in Florence. Our host Massimiliano was fantastic, we were able to drop our bags off earlier in the day and when he met us to do this he gave us a map and went through in detail, the various neighbourhoods and sites to visit. He then met us later on to check in and went through everything else. His apartment is clean and cool, a haven when you've been walking 27,000 steps around Florence- this is just our way of exploring! He even met us at check out and helped us to find the right bus as there was a bus strike- going above and beyond! Some real highlights for us was upstairs in the market central where you can choose from a range of food and eat it at a table with a cool beer- nice buzz and plenty of choice, reasonable prices too. A cycle tour by Florence Town provided a great introduction to the city. We also loved the the Santo Spirito, a square where the locals come to drink beer on the steps of the church and some fantastic restaurants where you'll find the best pizza we ever tasted at Borgo Antico. Then a little further towards the Pitti Palace was the best gelato we ever tasted, on the corner selling pink grapefruit ice cream - amazing! Every step you take you discover a new beautiful building or piazza. We will definitely come back to this city and to this apartment for further exploring! Thank you Massimiliano!!

Really enjoyed staying here, the apartment was lovely in a central (though quiet) area close to all the key sights. The apartment had everything we needed. The host was excellent and went out of his way to let us check in early and gave us lots of tips of places to go, where to eat and how to use public transport. Would definitely stay here again!

Really great studio flat close to the centre of Florence. Massimiliano was very helpful, he met us at our convenience to give the keys and take them back the next day, and gave us a detailed map with key sites to see. The studio is lovely - everything was clean and very comfortable. Facilities available for cooking, and there is a good wifi connection. Would love to come again!
