Two blockers from the Duomo, five or so from the Uffizi and close to Mercator centrale (market and excellent food hall).
Kitchen a bit cramped for really doing 8 person self catering.
Quiet private courtyard but ambience ruined, and I mean ruined, by major building work in apartment immediately above. Pneumatic drills, the lot.
So I would insist that the works be finished before rebooking a second time, but this aside I would come here again.
This apartment is located about two blocks from the Duomo and the David.....and about three blocks from the market. You couldn't ask for a better location. We traveled as six adults (all related) and took all four bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are accessed from the nice little courtyard that is shown in the picture, which worked for us because we had perfect weather. The courtyard was a bit buggy, so we really didn't use it. Apparently, there is a restaurant behind the apartment courtyard, as you could hear dishes being moved....but that ended reasonably early (before 11:00).
Each of the bedrooms has its own bath, all of which were clean and well appointed. A half-bath is located off the living/eating area. The common space is tight, especially for six people, and the kitchenette is very tough to use (the sink is in the corner, kind of behind a wall). We only used it for breakfast, so it didn't impact us too much. However, most of the bedrooms had their own sitting area.
We did have a hiccup at check-in as the owner had double-booked the apartment. Thankfully, our booking occurred first, so we got the apartment (don't know what happened to the seven ladies that had booked it later!).
Overall, it was a very good experience.
We so enjoyed our stay in Florence. Our accommodations were spectacular! The Artemisia by Acacia exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect and the apartments were beautiful. The set-up of 4 bedrooms and 4 baths was so convenient and it allowed privacy for each couple.
We had a dream time in Florence. The location of the 4 bedroom apt was perfect. We walked out the main door and we're close to everything...Duomo area. We had 4 adults and 3 children. The courtyard was beautiful, peaceful, and private. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and that was a great bonus. Diana and her staff were wonderful to work with and were so welcoming.
If you are looking for a great location near to the train station and many of Romes attractions I highly recommend this apartment. We were a group of 7 adults travelling together and this property suited us perfectly. It was well presented, spacious and fully equipped. The courtyard was a real bonus (other than a neighbour from upstairs throwing bottles at us as we were playing music instead of politely asking us to turn it down).
