This was definately one of the best places we stayed during our 6 week trip to Europe. Sadly we only had 2 nights but we will go back for more. Our host was more than helpful. She even helped navigate our way into the limited traffic zone in the old city (via mobile phone as we were really lost). Her walking tour of Florence was a highlight. She knew so much about art history and history in general that we didnt feel we even needed a guide book after our tour with her. Please ask her to take you on a tour. She is passionate about the city and will show and tell you things that you wont get out of a guide book.
The apartment was clean and comfortable and very spacious. The loaction couldnt have been better. Lots of great restaurants close by. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. i would definately stay here again and would stay here again- but next time for at least a week. We loved it. Thank you Anna Lena.

“Spacious Apartment, Perfect Location, Helpful Host”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lena's apartment is just off Piazza Santa Croce, a delightful and relaxing area of central Florence with many restaurants and bars, and a short walk from all the sights. Lena was very prompt, helpful, and informative in her responses to our emails and there to meet us on arrival and show us around. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, on the street, and one deep in the apartment. Each has an air conditioner. There is a living room with a fold-out bed and one bathroom. 6 would be a squeeze in here, but 4 would be fine and for the 2 of us, it was perfect. We loved coming back after some exploring and taking a break in the apartment or a siesta after lunch. It was like having a huge hotel suite to ourselves. Central Florence is noisy, so if you really really need perfect quiet, you'd want to stay outside town and travel in, but for us the convenience and relaxing calm of the apartment was perfect. Oh, and two steep flights of stairs up to the apartment would not work if you can't cope with stairs. But for us it was just perfect. We were combining work with pleasure, so the perfect wi-fi was crucial and it gave us no problems at all.

“It was everything I wanted plus more”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Suite Lena is just that. A two bedroom, one bath apartment with all the amenities of home...washing machine, dishwasher, tv, wifi, hot, hot water, some new double-paned windows, your own temperature controlled heating/air conditioning system, and fully furnished although basic. The location was ideal, right off Piazza Santa Croce with a beautiful view of the church. Within minutes we were able to navigate the city by foot to all the major sights, museums, galleries, markets, etc. Although there were 45 steps to reach the second floor, my husband who has asthma was walking them two and three times a day without feeling winded. Anna, Lena's granddaughter who manages the property couldn't be more accommodating. And lastly the price was amazing for the location and the size of the apartment. Without question we hope to return.
