It was a pleasure to work with Gabriel, Nic, and their staff from the start. Gabriel and Nic were always responsive responding to all emails within an hour or less. The location of the apartment is amazing. It is within walking distance of everything. During check-in they explained everything and answered all questions. It was a wonderful stay in Florence! Thank you for the great experience!

Gabriel and Nic's apartment is just the perfect base from which to explore Florence. The location is just ideal, right in the center of everything yet on a quiet side street and you will not hear a thing at night. Our family of 5 stayed there for a few days at the end of August and couldn't have been more comfortable. The apartment is large, tastefully decorated and very well appointed. It was a pleasure to come home to break the hot Florence summer day. Check in and check out couldn't have been easier. Very highly recommended!

We were in Florence in August of 2017 with our 3 children (14, 10 and 8 yo). Florence is a magical city and this apartment added to our enjoyment. The check in staff was prompt and was very helpful for restaurant and gelato recommendations. The location of the apartment was within walking distance of everything in the city, including the train station and all the sites of the city. Nothing was more than 10-15 mins away walking distance. The apartment was very modern with comfortable beds and had air conditioning in all the rooms (very helpful for August in Florence). The refrigerator was full sized and a market was within walking distance which allowed for breakfast and milk for the kids in the morning. Elevator was helpful to take the bags up since the apartment is on the 2nd floor. The water pressure was great in the showers. All in all, this was a great apartment in a great city!! Highly recommended.

This is a great apartment!!! Exactly how the pictures portray it!! The bedrooms are very big, great bathrooms and a fantastic location!!! The reason I gave a 4 star instead of 5 star (URL HIDDEN) because the air conditioning went out at 11:00pm on a night the temperature was 105. I called and texted every number I could find on the map they provided and on their website. I finally emailed Gabriel and he gave me the 24h emergency number... which I was to be provided at check in. I called and texted that number twice that night, three times the next morning. Of all my efforts, NO one replied that night or the next day. I emailed Gabriel in the morning about the status of repair and he assured me he would get back to me...well he didn't. I only found out about the repair because I sent yet another email. When we did arrive back, the a/c still wasn't cooling nor was there much pressure with the air flow. One more email and it finally was fixed. We went 12 hours without a/c. There are no fans provided, so there was absolutely no air circulating in the apartment. The temperature outside was 105/103. We had a miserable night sleep. The worst part was the lack of communication or concern. If you offer 24h emergency help, it should be provided. I was extremely disappointed in the lack of customer service.
