We stayed in this apartment for 2 months in early 2014. Overall, we were disappointed with the apartment and the level of assistance provided by Maria Cristina. It is very well located, right on the Arno River and a 10-minute walk from the main train station. We thought the price advertised was reasonable, and paid less than most of our friends who were also living in Florence then. The apartment was advertised as a ‘luxury apartment’, and this is a long way from the truth. Firstly, the ‘free access to gym’ advertised on the website is not true. When we asked Maria told us that we had to pay if we wanted to use the gym, and said she would try and change it on the website. While the master bedroom is great, one of the bedrooms (the green room), is absolutely tiny. The two beds are almost touching. It also did not have a light. This made it very frustrating for the people sleeping in it to spend two months in such a cramped space. It shouldn’t be advertised to sleep 6 people. The kitchen is good enough, but lacked appropriate cookware. We didn’t have enough cutlery for 6 people to have dinner together. The bin given is simply a small bucket, and would fill up after one meal. Surely it’s not too much to purchase a regular size bin for this ‘luxury apartment’. The laundry is an open concrete square in the middle of the apartment. Part of the ceiling is open, so it sometimes rains into the house. The bathrooms have simple showers that do not drain properly which was frustrating. They have clearly not had any plumbing done for a long time, and by the end of your shower the dirty water is around your ankles. This resulted in a layer of slime forming in one of the showers. When we complained that it wasn’t draining properly, we were told it was our fault as our ‘hair’ was getting caught in the plugs. Even after we cleared the plugs the problem persisted. Other than this, the apartment was poorly maintained, leading to a number of other problems. There was a leak that persisted from the roof after it rained; the kitchen light broke when the seal connecting it to the roof gave way. The fridge door does not close properly, and it sometimes freezes food. The wifi was also slow when 6 people were using it, and at one stage it dropped out for 3 days. Maria was pleasant at first, however was generally unwilling and slow to help with our problems. For example, when the light broke in kitchen, she was very slow in getting it fixed. When the wifi broke, she called the company, yet we still had no wifi for 3 days and were not given an apology. We have tried to give a reasonable, honest description of the apartment. This apartment is not recommended for a long stay, short stays it’s ok.
