“Perfectly located and well-appointed”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Mariangela was so easy to book with over email and was not upset when we arrived 30 minutes late to check-in (due to luggage taking almost 1 hour to reach baggage claim!).

The studio suite itself is very pretty and has everything you could need, even a combined washer/dryer. Her clear directions helped us easily walk to the building from the train station. Once you take a few of the routes from the piazza to figure out the lay of the land, all of the major sites in Florance are walkable.

We were just sorry that the News Cafe downstairs was closed while we were there! Next time, we'll get to try their "special cappuccino".

Mariangela has six apartments in this building, so if you don't prefer the look of this Purple Suite, maybe check her other units!

“Perfect place to stay in Florence”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Mariangela was the perfect host, she was there to greet us when we arrived and the flat was spotless and beautiful.

I could not recommend this rental more, its location is perfect - only a few minutes walk and you are at the Duomo.
The flat itself is lovely and has such a great modern decor.

The ice cream shop next door is amazing and the cafe a few doors down serves brilliant coffee.

All round we had an amazing stay and will hopefully be heading back soon.

“An outstanding experience and apartment.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Everything was as expected and more. It was our first time in Italy and of course Florence as well as renting an apartment so we did not know what to expect . Mariangela was very accommodating, extremely helpful, and just a wonderful person. The apartment was spotless. It was centrally located within walking distance to pretty much everything. I traveled with my wife and 2 adult sons and there was plenty of room and the apartment was very comfortable. I would absolutely rent here again and would use Glam Apartments/Mariangela for future rentals in Italy. Just a great experience!!!!

“LOVE the Purple Suite!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Mariangela was very responsive and professional. The suite was clean and had everything we needed. It's a couple of flights of stairs, but wasn't a problem for us. We were there during the World Cup when Italy had their first game and won against England. We would have gone downstairs to Ciro & Sons (great food by the way) to partake in the excitement but we were still jet lagged. We closed the windows and couldn't hear anything. So even though you're right in the center of it all, it was still quiet. Also very convenient that the train station was just down the street. We would definitely stay there again.

“Wonderful, would stay here again in a hearbeat!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Mariangela was wonderful! Met us early so we could check ahead of time. The directions from the train station walking with luggage was perfect. We loved everything about this apartment, clean, great location, quiet at night, the best nights rest we had since we arrived. She checked on us, bought us a small package of cookies and we ordered the welcome package, so that saved us from going to the grocery store. I can't wait till I come back to Florence I will check this place out again and stay here. There is a great restaurant up the street, about 1 minute walk, 'Trattoria Il Porcospino", awesome place, Franco & Tony are the best also. I can't say enough good things about this apartment and the surroundings.
