Marjan met us early for our check in and provided a super overview not only of the apartment but what is in the area.
The apartment is as it looks. Wonderful location. Lots of food and grocery stores in the area. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed for cooking when we didn’t wish to go out. The internet is reliable. The TV has lots of channels including a few in English (so we got our news fix.)
Note… although the listing says “Ground floor/1st Floor” its really the second floor. The first is a gelato shop. So you walk up about 8-10 steps to enter the apartment. I guess this is a difference in listings between Italy and the USA. To us, this was a HUGE positive. I didn’t like the idea of the windows opening directly to the street and they didn’t. They were well above.
Overall a wonderful place to stay in Florence. Marjan told us she manages several apartments so if this one is booked on your particular day, ask her for other options.
We WILL return. Grazie
We stayed in this fantastic apartment in August 2013. The location could not have been better. We flew into Pisa, picked up the train to Florence. It was within easy walking distance from the station. Marjan the manager met us at the apartment as arranged – showed us around, made us feel very welcome and at home. She also pointed out some recommendations for local restaurants etc. We worked our way through them, and were not disappointed. It saved us a lot of bother. We also did stay in and cook a few times. The kitchen was well equipt and functioned well. The apartment perfect for us. And our 12 year old daughters were very happy. The wifi was a bonus. Despite Via Faenza being a busy street, we found the bedrooms being at the back were relitively quiet. We will be back, and would like to thank Marjan for all her help.
Great apartment on a wonderful centrally located, pedestrian only street. The wifi worked well and there were two air conditioners which kept the apartment nice and cool. We only used the kitchen for breakfast, but it was very well stocked. We would definitely rent here again. Make sure and have the gelato downstairs!
Very nice apartment in the heart of Firenze. On the first floor of the building. Big enough for 4-5 persons with a fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. Very clean as well. It was at a really good spot.
Very nice flat, nicely decorated, warm and pleasant; central location at walking distance of all the sites; Marjan was extremely friendly and helpful; we couldn’t recommend this rental more strongly!
