We were happy staying in this apartment. The location is great with an easy walk to all the major tourist sites including the Central Market. There was also a nice grocery store to go to at the end of the street. It seemed like a quiet, safe area and the apartment locks up very securely. The apartment was very clean and everything worked well. We were very happy to be able to do some laundry there. The apartment was kind of a strange lay out and it was always a bit cold , probably due to the thick walls of a older building. We wore socks and put the extra blankets on the bed so we were fine. If you do turn on the heat you will have to pay for your electricity usage. The patio garden is very lovely but we did not use.
Rosy was great and responds to questions and emails right away. She was waiting for us in the apartment even though we were late in arriving. Rosy provides a lot of information on Florence and the area but she did not have a tourist map which would have been helpful on our first day. Overall I would recommend this apartment for your stay in beautiful city of Florence.More
