“Fantastic apartment right in the centre of Florence”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in the last week of October. We found Lena and Annalisa very helpful at helping us plan our trip and advising us of the local area which meant we could get the most out of our stay. The apartment itself is charming and in an excellent location to visit the sights, it is also secure. Highly recommended

“Perfect location for staying in Florence and a great host!”

The location of the apartment is perfect for going out to dinner, picking up market supplies or getting to all the sites within Florence. The apartment is a 15 - 20 minute walk to the train station. When we arrived at the apartment, our host checked us in and provided us with information about the area and Florence. The apartment had all the amenities needed for 5 travelling girlfriends, and was very clean.

Upon arrive, we scheduled for a guided tour at the Uffizi Gallery and were running late so our host offered to walk us there so we were able to make our guided tour on time. Thank you Anna, you were very helpful. Anna also booked our taxi shuttle to the train station on our departure day, which was greatly appreciated.

Also, I happended to leave a pair of shoes behind when we moved onto Rome. I had just bought the shoes before leaving on this trip, so I asked if the shoes could be shipped to Sorrento which was the last leg of our trip. Our host, Anna, was so kind and mailed the shoes to Sorrento and I was able to pick them up at the post office 2 days before leaving Italy. Anna went above and beyond . . . thank you, your kindness is much appreciated.

Great times in Florence, Italy.

“Amazing apt in heart of Firenze!!!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is an incredible apartment to rent. The place is clean and tidy and in amazing location. It is within walking distance of all major sites in florence, lots of amazing restaurants, and night life! I stayed here with 6 girls for one week and we had a wonderful stay! Rooms are spacious and kitchen has amenities to cook with. We made dinner one night and had so much fun cooking in our Italian kitchen. Lena is very kind and very accommodating. Our train was late and she was very sweet and waited for us despite the long delay. I would recommend this apt to anyone traveling to florence. It's an amazing deal and amazing location. I would most definitely stay here again!

“Wonderful host- great location!! Stay here!!!”

person found this review helpful

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.
