“Excellent Stay!”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My husband and I spent a week at the Ponte Vecchio (Guelfo) apartment with our 3 boys (16, 14 and 11). This spacious apartment is conveniently located just over Ponte Vecchio in the Oltrarno neighborhood. We liked this location because it's right on the edge of the tourist craziness with walking access to all of the major sites, but with a more residential feel. The apartment itself is bright, clean and modern with all of your needs including a full kitchen, washing machine and strong wifi (not the case in most other places we stayed during our 3-week trip). All bedrooms had en suite bathrooms which was especially nice.
The apartment is situated on a street with plenty of shopping, cafes and bars. We enjoyed avoiding the crowds and exploring the Oltrarno neighborhood. In addition to the many options on the street outside the front door, Piazza Della Passera is a quick walk from the apartment and has several great restaurant and bar options. A supermarket is just steps from the apartment and the kitchen is well-equipped for cooking at home.
The apartment option was a more economical way to go for our family since it is less expensive than 2 hotel rooms to accommodate our family of 5.
Our only negatives:
* We had a couple of maintenance issues (AC, shower) which were resolved within our first few days.
* The apartment has a nice-sized balcony, but not much of a view. Still nice for enjoying coffee or an aperitif.

“Gorgeous place!”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The apartment was beautiful, the outside balcony was great, and the location right in the heart of things. I would highly recommend this apartment. Only drawback was internet went down for over 2 days and they didn't tell us we had to remove ALL our trash upon leaving or be charged a fee! Never heard of anything like that before!!!

“Absolutely great!”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Absolutely great! Our family -father, mother and 4 kids- stayed here at the end of March and it was perfect:
1. On the quieter, less touristic side of Ponte Vecchio, yet 2 mn walk from it and walking distance (with a 3 year old, mind you) to all the sites.
2. With a fabulous, extremely well stocked supermarket CONAD 3mn away. Try to avoid late afternoons when people do their dinner shopping.
3. With a garage meters away from your door: parking in Florence is impossible without a garage. This one is extremely convenient and at a reasonable enough price if you care to leave your car there for the duration of your stay or if you just want to drop off heavy luggage and then park the car at a free spot outside the center.
4. The apartment itself has just been redone: it is in impeccable conditions, spacious, clean, modern but cosy, with fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer etc: so you can cook any meals, travel light and easily do the laundry.
5. The internet works very well and it is connected to the TV: our kids could watch their favorite shows in a language they understood.
6. The neighborhood makes you feel at home: we could see ourselves living here and enjoying our routines. There is abundance of little cafés and small restaurants, shops of all sorts, antique stores...
7. The staff that welcomed us was very friendly and competent: Gabriele took the time to explain everything about the apartment and then gave us precious insights into Florence. We felt like we had a head start. We do have dear friends in Florence and it was not our first time there so we can vouch for the quality and value of his suggestions.

So, top rating! ...my only hesitation in writing such an enthusiastic review is that this great secret of ours is going to be known by all of you and the apartment is likely not going to be free for us the next time we come to Florence . Well, I guess we'll have to book early... Enjoy!

Dear Mathilde,
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback. . Feedbacks are always welcomed and shared with the owner and are at guests disposal to review so they may know what to expect when selecting their apartment.
You are right, the Ponte Vecchio Guelfo is located in between the touristic area and the peace of the Oltrarno area, very close to all facilities that a family with small kids like your may need!
We are very happy you had a great experience and we look forward to having you back in Florence soon!
Kind regards
Caterina

“All the modern comforts in the midst of classic history”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

From the rental agency to the apartment itself, our stay in Florence was exemplary. This was our fifth trip to the city and we would definitely return to this apartment again in the future. It's perfectly appointed, clean and beautiful and the location is divine!

“Great Location”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is a beautiful apartment--clean, quiet, spacious, and nicely maintained. No traffic noise. Very workable kitchen, and great to have a laundry room with washer AND dryer! The location is ideal, steps to the Ponte Vecchio, a taxi stop, and a grocery store with everything you need. Apartments Florence does a very good job managing (we're going to use them again), and they were very responsive in fixing a water heating issue right away (I happen to speak Italian, but the repairman called speaking English...impressive!). Small issues the owner might consider for future renters: clarify where trash and recycling needs to be taken (other renters in the building were unsure as well), Wi-Fi doesn't always reach all the bedrooms, and the bathroom with the bathtub shower could use an additional curtain to keep water from getting on the floor. None of these are reasons to stay away--we highly recommend this apartment, and we'd be hard-pressed to find something more comfortable, peaceful, and in such a perfect location. The website pictures are accurate. This is a gem. Reserve it now, without hesitation.

Liked best: Location, modern decor, washer and dryer, quiet top floor
Liked least: The building lobby and stairwell could be lighter and cleaner, with directions for trash and recycling.
