Like many others looking for a long-term rental in Firenze, I spent countless hours on the web hunting for the perfect place. Word of mouth sent me to focus on the Oltrarno and Santa Croce neighborhoods, so this apartment flew under the radar for a while. After weighing space, budget, and convenience, I took a risk on this place. I could not have been more pleasantly surprise. The apartment is very spacious (especially for just one person); it could probably accommodate a family of 3-4 without too much fuss (the bathroom is tight quarters). Everything is well-appointed and the private outdoor patio was a delight. Beyond the apartment itself, what I appreciated daily was the rhythm of the neighborhood; not too touristy (i.e. no experience of boisterous, drunk revelers during wee hours of the morning, unlike other parts of Firenze) but at the same time close to everything. Close to excellent ristorante, caffe, gelateria, pasticceria, Mercato Centrale, Duomo, and -- for someone planning to use Firenze as home base for exploring Tuscany -- close to the Piazza San Marco bus depot and the Santa Maria Novello train station.
