Nice appartment, the location is perfect : in the center 20 meters from Santa Croce in a nice street. The two bedrooms are large and nicely decorated, towels and linens are all new and the kitchen is seperated with everything needed to cook.
Coffee , restaurants, supermarket etc....few minutes away...
But most of all Lena is an amazing host.
She waited for us late at night, helping us carrying our lugage and left us a bottle of wine, lots of fresh fruits and very helpfull informations. She was always available for any recommendations..
We have had a wonderfull stay and would recommend Lena in the futur.
Friendly welcome from Francisco when we arrived after long delays. The apartment is in a very old building with all the atmosphere of days gone by. Roomy & clean though noisy at night as the night life on street level is busy and even in early morning. The entrance stairs are long & dark so take note of light switches!
Amenities are basic but ok.
The best part of our stay was the central location. We could walk comfortably to most of the sights & there were many good restaurants nearby.
We loved Florence & our tour of the Tuscan countryside, The Uffizi & Academia.
Don't forget that you must cover your shoulders when going into churches. We did not & had to take a guided tour of the Duomo when a scarf was provided. Well worth it in the end.
One other tip - we travelled by train so be aware of Florence train station. We did not realise you have to queue twice - first to get a number for the ticket window, then another for ticket line. No notices were displayed with directions - help came from other tourists!

Terrific location in center of Florence and Santa Croce. Easy to access sites and come back mid-day for a rest/lunch if you want. Lena was a great host recommending grocery store and restaurant--definitely visit the restaurant she recommends. All communications were efficient and helpful. Apartment is well cared for, clean, and great for families or a group. There were 5 of us and this was perfect with washing machine and kitchen we made good use of. Wifi and AC also worked well--it was hot/humid when we were there so the AC was appreciated. We can't wait to go back!
we went to Florence in middle of July 2014, staid 3 adults and 4 children. We found enough space for all of us, the flat is good and in quite surrounding. The location I can say perfect - everything is in walking distance. The owner is honest and ready to help in everything. We would highly recommend this flat.
