“Unforgetable experience”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The apartment is situated in a stunning setting,step into the street and the great dome rears above you,its amazing.You can reach any tourist spot in any direction easily and comfortably.Amenities are close by,supermarket,pharmacy etc,a first rate modern restaurant has opened nearby(highly recommended)

The piazza was crowded,the temp 30c,but the apartment was cool and quiet.We heard voices from the restaurant on our first night but experienced no other noise problems during our stay.The high ceilings and tall,slim shuttered windows were pleasantly relaxing.The apartment kitchen seems to have every mod con, there is no oven,although I wouldn't be surprised if there was one hidden away somewhere,the design is really good.

Eleonora made enormous efforts to fit in with our peculiar flight times,both on our arrival and last night ,it was really appreciated, as was the fine red Chianti welcoming us,a thoughtful gesture.Eleonora was very helpful with suggestions for visits,information on shops etc,and gave a detailed debriefing of everything in the apartment.

The fine guide to Florence by Rick Stevesin the apartment is great fun ,pity its been mutilated,weird thing to do in the cradle of humanism.

Many thanks Eleonora for making our return to Florence so memorable.

Thanks a lot for so detailed and positive comments and descriptions.
Yes, it wasn't possible to place a traditional oven in addition to the microwave one, which is generally preferred by our guests.
It has been a real pleasure to host you and your wife in my old home, hoping to meet you again in the future. Eleonora.

“Loved it”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The apartment was very clean & homey. The convenience was incredible. The restaurant below didn't bother us a bit & we ate there twice. The food was delicious and the people who worked there were so nice & even hugged us when we left. Eleanora was such a nice lady & I will refer this to anyone traveling to Florence.

“Beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence.”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Eleonora was very prompt in answering all our questions, and arranging for meeting at the apartment. She is very professional and cordial. The apartment is a half block from the Duomo, and is beautifully appointed with comfortable furniture and very nice artwork, with even a bottle of wine to greet us. The bed was sooo comfortable. Lots of space so the early riser does not disturb the lazy bones who stays in bed. The elevator was very nice, as every day we came home tired. Every day we would pass the Duomo, in morning light, at dusk, lit up in the evening. The location was perfect. In the late evening, we would hear a bit of the noise from the downstairs restaurant. We used a white noise app on our phone to pretty much drown it out. Eleonora said she would talk to the owner about it. This was a very comfortable apartment in a great central location in Florence.

I am very sorry for the bit of noise from outside you felt, and due to your notice I am providing about since my continuing effort is my guests may have a perfect life experience in Florence, in any aspect, even if each one has its own threshold about noise. It must be taken into account the apartment is just at the corner with Piazza Duomo, in the inner core of the monumental part of Florence around the Dome, where many people wish to come, stay, and attend bar and restaurants; so, you shouldn't expect the same quiet level you could have outside this prestigious and small area of Florence. On the other side, the area where the apartment is located in is a pedestrian one, so no noise at all from cars and motorcycles. Many thanks for your comments and overall appreciation, and I hope have the possibility to host you again in Florence in the future. Eleonora.

“Just perfect for us”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed for five nights the latter part of May 2016. The location can not be beat! Walk out the front door at the street, look to your right and there you are in the center of Florence looking at the Duomo (well, at street level you're actually looking at the line queueing to go up to the dome) - central to EVERYTHING for touring the city. Eleonora the owner was very precise in all my dealings with her beforehand and met us at the apartment as agreed up both at check-in and check-out. There is always a concern when booking privately but absolutely no problems here. The building has a handy elevator for luggage and the unit itself is well equipped with modern appliances. The owner goes over very thoroughly about features of the apartment at check-in. She cares about her property and how you should be mindful. The apartment is cleaned well and I recommend to anyone looking for this type of accomodation. LOVELY.

“A perfect holiday in a perfect apartment!”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This wonderful apartment was perfect for our first time in Florence. Eleonora was efficient and helpful throughout the booking process, answering any questions promptly. When we arrived late evening, (the lift being extremely useful with heavy suitcases) both she and her husband greeted us warmly, showed us around, explained how everything worked and offered suggestions for places to visit and authentic restaurants to try. They also kindly left us milk, bottled water, yoghurt and fruit. The whole apartment was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed very comfortable and the living room was bright and airy with a small balcony overlooking a courtyard.

The apartment is literally steps from the beautiful Duomo and whilst the streets are vibrant with tourists outside, inside it's quiet and peaceful. It is only 10 minutes walking to all the famous sites. Florence itself is small and compact so it's easy to get around. We also bought an excellent book ' Secret Florence' which includes many interesting things to see which aren't included in the usual travel books eg. there is a marble circle on the pavement outside the Duomo. It's easy to just walk over it and not notice but this is the spot where the copper ball on top of the dome landed after it was struck by lightning.

Not to be missed is the view from Piazzale Michelangelo both during the day and at sunset! You can walk up both ways or take a taxi up there and either walk/take the bus back down.

We had such a lovely time. Thanks Eleonora for your all your help and kindness. We hope to visit again soon.
