Part of a 14th century building, our cosy 1-BR flat is right in the heart of Florence and offers easy access to all its great historical sites. It has a room with double bed, shower room, fully equipped kitchen, two small courtyards and lounge with double sofa bed

The space

Our 1 br apt is in the heart of historical Florence! Located on the ground floor of a 14th century building, the apt has preserved several of the original built-in details, such as an original sandstone washtub, a tile drainage system and some brick elements (arch and nook), now serving a purely aesthetic purpose.

It includes one bedroom with a king-size bed and a large wardrobe, one bathroom with shower, a living room with a sofa bed which easily converts into a double bed (140x200 cm), a small (please be aware of this fact when booking your stay) but fully equipped and functional kitchen corner, in-unit laundry, WiFi, and two small courtyards with outdoor table and chairs. Though lacking air conditioning, we honestly think this won’t be a problem, because the apt keeps a very nice and cool interior temperature even on the hottest days of the year. Note: the main bed is composed of two separate mattresses (90x190 cm) and easily transforms in twin beds: if you prefer this option, please indicate so before arrival.

The building is right in the heart of Florence and it offers easy access to all its great historical and artistic sites. In addition, a wide range of bars and cafés, restaurants, grocery stores, the famous Sant’Ambrogio farmers’ market (open Monday to Saturday until 2pm), and more are just steps away. A map and a booklet of our favourite neighbourhood spots and recommendations are available in the house.

The apartment has been newly renovated and all appliance, fixtures and lightening are new. After the renovation, we furnished it according to our own experience as travellers and short term lodgers, in order to make it the best possible stay for someone who would visit Florence for a short time. Cooking ware, dishes and cups, clean towels and bed linens, shampoo and shower gel are provided for our guests’ use. Upon your arrival, we'll greet you personally and answer any questions about the apartment, neighbourhood or city. Moreover, we will be flexibly available during your stay and will provide any information or address any concerns you might encounter.

This is a perfectly located place. It is in a safe area and only 10 min walk to all the main attractions. There are good restaurants near by. We had one issue with the hot water and Antonio came right away to help. One thing that is out of their control is one of the neighbors plays loud music late into the night and the walls are extremely thin. If you are a light sleeper you may have a problem with it, but we were always do tired it didn't bother us too much.

Cosy Casa was the perfect place for two! We truly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was centrally located and within easy walking distance to everything we wanted to do in Florence. The apartment was everything we hoped it would be. It was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was fully functional and we cooked a few meals. Antonio and Marianna were very helpful and quickly answered any questions we had. We had a great stay!

We really enjoyed our week stay here. Communication was perfect and Marianna was waiting for us at check in. I recommend just taking a cab if you have much baggage at all it's only around 10 euros from Santa Maria Novello train station. The location is superb for overall proximity to sights and also nightlife and restaurants. We just loved the neighborhood. The place was cozy and certainly met our needs. Details: The bed was adequate. There is storage place around the head of the bed as you can see in the pics but that's all. The bathroom is also adequate and reasonably sized. The shower is small (as most in Florence are) but good water temp and pressure. We liked the den and although small is comfortable with a window, and you have a private outdoor patio. The place is quiet overall although the neighbors played loud music a few nights of our 6 night stay. It didn't really bother us but if you are picky about noise it might. The kitchen has a few basic items (glasses and plates and bowls) but not equipped for preparing full meals. We really liked the floor plan. We've been traveling for months and the layout allowed us (couple) separate space. It felt larger than it appears in the pictures. You can really relax and spread about a bit. Overall we had a good and comfortable stay and had no major complaints, and felt the price was reasonable.

The home is amazing, and the amount of thought put into the arrangement by Marianna and Antonio is very noticeable. A custom notated map is there, and a full binder with information useful for the stay. We loved the old feel of the space, and it was clean and spacious as well. The location is amazing, and for the price it makes for a great value!
