26/08/2018 - Outstanding location but room for improvement.
What more could you ask for that a balcony with a view of the Arno ( spectacular at night) , view and stone's throw from the Ponte Vecchio , close to wonderful ammenities and a short walk to all f the major sites in Florence? It seems unreasonable to make any negative comments given all of the above , but this property did have some misgivings. The apartment was spacious, and perfect for our group of 5. A cool haven on hot days thanks to the air-conditioning in each room. The beds were very comfortable and the 2 bathrooms well fitted out with plenty of hot water.The complementary bottle of wine was a nice touch. However... the kitchen is tiny and narrow and the equipment tired and not all functional. You really can only have one person at a time in there so as to avoid accidents and frustrations. The kitchen is not adequate for the number of people that the accomodation sleeps; but it would be fine for guests who do not plan on cooking or preparing meals in house. This is not a huge problem, given the many cafes and restaurants to choose form nearby, and there is also a very well stocked supermarket not far with plenty of pre-prepared meals and antipasto selections. The other main issue for this rental ( which I don't think can be resolved but needs to be known by future renters) is the awful smell of sewerage at the ground entrance to the apartment. This is a problem throughout Florence, but the sewerage vent at this apartment is directly in front of the entrance door and unavoidable. Despite the misgivings mentioned...We loved our 6 nights in Florence and the views and the location certainly make this property worth considering again should we return.
21/06/2018 - Excellent view, spotless, fair WiFi, apt showing wear
Communication was excellent and we were allowed an early check-in, which was unexpected and so helpful! We were given maps and restaurant suggestions to help acclimate us. The view of the Arno and The Ponte Vecchio is the highlight of the apartment, and we enjoyed watching crew boats go by. The apartment was spotless and had some nice coffee table books about Florence that we enjoyed looking at. There were three sofas in the living room and 2 were great, but the 3rd, a sofa bed, seemed to be in need of repair. A corner chair also needed repair. The beds were comfortable, which is always a plus! The kitchen is small, but I didn’t travel to Florence to cook. A WiFi extender is definitely needed because WiFi didn’t work in the bedrooms. Overall, the apt is great, but it could use some updates.
18/06/2018 - Fabulous Apartment
Perfect location and wonderful view! This apartment provided everything our family of 5 needed for a terrific stay in Florence. The location is ideal. An unbeatable view from the family room morning, day, and night. Even the teenagers gathered in the family room to appreciate the view. You walk out the front door with easy access to nice cafes and restaurants. Large grocery store is a 5 minute walk. Very little noise in the apartment but you can walk out of the building to a terrific street and quick access to the Ponte Vechio. The location in the Oltrano proved very useful. We found the best shops within 10 minutes. Highly recommend this apartment!

The place was awesome! I could have spent my whole vacation on the patio overlooking the river, the buildings across the river, and the bridge! Perfect location, outstanding views, close to everything, plenty of space for the four of us, and very comfortable. The check-in/out were seamless and we appreciated the assistance with the taxi arrangement to the airport on our last day. Would definitely choose to stay here again!
10/01/2018 - Beautiful apartment with amazing views!
The apartment is on the 4th floor with lift access directly into the apartment. The open plan living space is very comfortable and light with wonderful views over the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio bridge. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of closet space and comfortable beds. The bathrooms are modern - the water pressure in the shower was a little low but not a major issue. The kitchen is compact but perfectly serviceable - certainly not a problem if you intend to eat out while you are there. The apartment is in a wonderful position to enjoy all the sights of Florence - a short walk to all the major attractions. There are some excellent restaurants in the vicinity and also an excellent supermarket only a block away.
