Great little apartment right in the centre of Florence. We were so impressed by the location - it's minutes from the Duomo and bars and restaurants are literally on the doorstep. With the apartment on the 3rd floor in the centre of the city noise is to be expected. It is very noisy late in the night and into the the morning. We only stayed for 2 nights and were out late so this didn't bother us - but if you plan to have early nights then bring some ear plugs! The hosts were great - there were some general maintenance works to the whole building and there was an issue with the gas being turned off, but the hosts resolved the problem straight away which was greatly appreciated. Overall, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable apartment and location is important to you, then this flat ticks the boxes :)

The apartment was in a great location with all notable landmarks within a 10 minute walk. It was very clean and provided most amenities needed. However, there was an issue with the gas so Cristina told us to inform her that night or the next morning if the problem was still the same which was perfectly reasonable. I messaged the following morning on Airbnb and via text but received no response at all. This meant we didn't have full use of the kitchen or any hot water so we had to have cold showers and eat all of our meals out. As we were only staying for 4 days we dealt with the issue ourselves but was annoyed that our host didn't find a solution or compensate for this problem. Regardless of the issue the apartment was perfect for a short city break and didn't ruin our trip.

This apartment could not be more perfectly located in the heart of Florence. Shops, restaurants, and a fantastic leather market are steps away from the front door. I was traveling alone and did not mind the noise, but there is plenty of it every morning as 20+ vendors push their large leather shop carts down the cobblestone road. It happens again at the end of the day in case you wanted to take a nap. I brought earplugs and was not disturbed. The lack of air conditioning was not a problem for me, as I was not there much during the day and slept with the windows open at night. However, there was no hot water for the shower which made things interesting. Everything was really clean – not a hair, bug, or smudge in sight. The building is currently under construction so the stairwell leading up to the apartment has large pieces of wall missing and can get dusty. The stairwell lights are also not working in the main entry and first level, so being alone in the dark on my first night was a bit alarming. Great location, though, which was most important to me – I would stay here again.

Great place, amazing location and very clean. If you are looking for the perfect place close to everything than this is it, 5-10 minute walk to all the main sites and restaurants and bars just outside the door. Be aware if you rent over a weekend it can be quite loud but the location is worth it. One note, the building is under construction and we did receive a few warnings about the water being shut off but the apartment is still in working condition. My wife and I had a great time and would definitely rent again.

Nice, simple and spacious apartment in a great area. Easy check in and check out by a friend of the host's. Washing machine a definite plus after weeks of traveling! My main issue is that we were not told about the very heavy construction the building was undergoing during our stay. It looked like it had been going on for a while, so I get the feeling it was intentional to not let me know beforehand. There was construction dirt and dust everywhere and the noise began early in the morning through to the evening. We were also approached by a construction worker to enter the apartment and check plumbing, pipes, etc. We didn't feel completely comfortable with this as tourists that don't speak the language with our passport and other sensitive information on us.

Excellent location. Place had everything we needed. I do suggest eat plugs if you are a light sleeper since there is action outside till after midnight. I still managed to sleep well disputed the noise. Florence was amazing and staying here made it even more so.
