“Location, amenities and great help from Madallena :-)!”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

The apartment is conveniently located and gave us the ease to access all the places we wanted to visit. Madallena is such a wonderful person that meeting her was a delight. She welcomed us at the apartment with a basket of fruits and wine. She gave us all the information we needed to make most of our stay in Florence (5 days).

Thank you Madallena :-)!

“Lovely weekend break”

Delightful little apartment right in the centre of Florence!
Stayed for three nights in October for my girlfriends birthday. The apartment was lovely, especially considering how cheap it was. Maddalena was brilliant and did everything she could to make us feel welcome, including putting up decorations as I mentioned it was my girlfriends birthday, and putting out a bowl of fruit and a bottle of wine as well as an extensive list of recommendations (many of which we took and I can say I would recommend them as well)!
I could not recommend this apartment any more, not only would I recommend it to a friend but I will almost definitely be renting from Maddalena if I return to Florence (which I very much intend to do one day)!
One warning: the apartment is on the fourth floor and the stairs may prove tricky for anyone with any physical limitation.

“Perfect for two. Internet access, clean, amazing location, very helpful owner.”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed there for 5 days in september '14, and it was great.
The apartment is not huge but more than enough for two, very clean and fitted with everything you need. There is a good feel to it and the owner was extremely responsive and helpful. There is a wifi internet access which was really helpful to look up stuff to see during our stay.
It's great value and the place is only cheap because of its relatively small size, but it's perfect for two people.
The bed is more than enough for two, but be careful if you are big or if both of you need tons of space to sleep, it's a double bed but a "small double bed", something like 120x190.
And the location is absolutely amazing, close to everything (everything in the center is at walking distance) while not being as packed and crowdy as other areas. And Santa Croce is the perfect place to chill with spritz on a warm summer night.

“Quirky flat in great location”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This flat is in a great location in Santa Croce, a quiet safe neighborhood. Our host was out of town when we were in Florence, but her friend who spoke no English met us and showed us upstairs. There are 83 steps to climb to reach this apartment so don't bother booking unless you are prepared to climb them! An envelope from the host awaited us telling us local information, which was useful advice. The flat is very, very small, the bed is really too small for two people I think. There was an issue waiting for the water to get hot, and also with the main apartment building lock which fell off when I was exiting the building. Because it was a Saturday the lock stayed broken until the Monday when it was repaired. I figured that no-one would want climb up the stairs to our locked door so it was ok. Good flat to stay in for one fit person I suggest.

“Perfect Place!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I came to Florence for business on my own and required something close to the conference venue but also close to all the sites Florence has to offer! I was greeted by Maddalena with the most friendly smile and helpful advice on the best places to visit--without the side effect of thousands of tourists! Again, this was exactly what I was looking for! The flat itself is just the right amount of space for one person, is clean, comfortable, and has everything you need to self cater if needed. I didn't self cater--why would you when you're in a city with some of the finest food in the world??! I couldn't recommend this place enough for other solo travelers--business or pleasure!
