About this listing

In the historic center of the city, few meters from the train station, fully furnished and recently renovated.
Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, bedroom for two, living room with a double sofa bed for 2 (total 4 place).
A perfect location and starting point for walking tours in the centre of the city, less than 5/10 minutes by walking to the major monuments (Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio). Wifi network h24 for free, air conditioning, tv color.

The space

At only 300 meters from the Santa Maria Novella train Station, in Via Faenza, in the historical district of San Lorenzo, beautiful apartment on the second floor (no elevator), with kitchen, living room with double sofa bed, bedroom for two - total 4 people - and bathroom with shower.

The apartment is fully equipped for everyday life (microwave, fridge, oven, iron, etc.)

I live in the country, 25 km far from Florence so the apartment is completely at your disposition and not in sharing with me or other guests.

Via Faenza is a typical street in the Historic centre of the city. There are many restaurant, coffe shop and market and a supermarket and a self service laundry are only 50 meters far from the flat.
We are only 5 minutes by walking from the Florence Catedral "Il Duomo" and 7 minutes from the Uffizi Gallery.
In the same neighborhood there is the famous market of "San Lorenzo".
From here you may visit all the historic centre by walking, without pubblic transportation or car.
If you need a garage for your car, there are 2 at 100 meters from the flat.

Check in from 2 pm to 8 pm (late and early check in on request)
Check out before 10 am

Guest access

The apartment is independent and not shared with me or with other guests. It is fully furnished for the daylife.
IF YOU ARRIVE BY CAR: In the historic center there are restrictions to traffic for not residents, so you would have to leave the car out of that area and find a parking spot there, you can find free ones (good luck with that..) and then walk to my house, maybe less if you are lucky, or you can also park in a private parking around the block from my house wich cost €20/24 per 24h. Honestly I will suggest to search for a parking spot out before enter the cameras, other guests have done this way.
Other closer parkings are (payment) at Via Nazionale or in the underground of Mercato Centrale.

Interaction with guests

I will provide tips and maps of the city and informations about restaurants, bars, places of interest according to your personal taste.

Great location, within walking distance from most of the locations you'd want to visit. Quiet street. However we had issues with electricity plugs, with the bed in the living room (fitted only 1 person), the bathroom door and the pump's noise. The lump seems to be related to the whole floor so when someone uses the shower or the restroom, you are going to hear the pump's noise.

Pros: Overall the location was amazing and our stay was comfortable. The room was spacious we were walking distance to everything including the train station and Duomo. Our host was very communicative and flexible with our late check in. Cons: The wifi was painfully slow and unreliable. The connection would constantly cut out and this made booking reservations or researching travel plan quite frustrating and difficult. The bathroom plumbing would consistently make loud noises even when no one was using it, waking us up when we slept.

It was okay. The good parts: We felt safe, the location was good. The sheets and towels were clean, if very cheap. The A/C worked well. The bad parts: There is a very loud electric pump that makes a "rrrrrrr" sound every time you flush the toilet or run water- which means flushing a toilet at night wakes up everyone in the house and showers are not relaxing because every minute or so the cranking sound goes off. It is VERY loud. There are no towels or paper towels for the kitchen. There were exactly enough towels for each guest to have one bath towel and there were two hand towels for our three day stay. The refrigerator was open when we arrived, and it had several inches of white frost on the freezing coil so that it would not shut. We needed a refrigerator, so we called the host. He said he would be there in 15 minutes. An hour and a half later, after we had chipped and blow dried all of the frost off of the coil while waiting for him, he showed up and let us know the problem was fixed. Yup. He also let us know that it was not safe to use a blow dryer in a refrigerator. The bathroom sink is backed up and so the sink fills while you use it. It is gross. If you close the shower door all the way, it will fall off of the track. There is also a sewage smell that periodically seeps in from somewhere. The apartment is much smaller than it appears in the pictures and the views from the windows are of the shutters. As the title indicates, this place was okay. I did not feel good while I was here. I think the backing up water, fridge situation, and the constant noise of the pump made me feel uncomfortable. It seemed like the place was icky and nasty because of these factors.

Very nice apartment, with a lot of space. Very close to train station, and just a short walk to all main attractions in Florence. Giuseppe was and manager Mr. Fabrizio were super friendly and helpful. Thank you for a great stay.

Giuseppe's place was in a very central location and many of Florence's sights were within 30min walkable distance. The place was air conditioned and beautiful. Only con is the water pump had some noise but it did not pose any problems to us sleeping at night.

The apartment is quite big for two people, there are two rooms and a kitchen. It's situated in a very lively street very close to the railway station which is very convenient if you plan to travel from Florence. It's close to the Central market and the main sights are also easily reachable on foot. It's a little bit noisy outside till midnight or so but it's fine as tourists usually tend to come home late I think. The sound of water pump in the night is the only drawback.
