On the top floor (without lift) BUT in an ancient building in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, the apartment, equipped with every comfort, is very bright, quiet and welcoming. A 2-step walk from the station is projected into the heart of the historic center between antique shops, museums, art, monuments and shopping. You can walk to the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio in just a few minutes. Offering our warm hospitality, we look forward to offering you a pleasant Florentine stay.

The space

The building has the same age as the square, the end of the 1200's. Over the centuries it has hosted a monastery and many important families in Florence, as evidenced by some frescoes uncovered during the recent renovation.
The newly renovated apartment consists of a large entrance hall with 150x190 sqm sofa bed, dressing corner, reading corner and some glimpses of antique frescoes in the house; A corridor with some of Florence's views photos; A double bedroom with a 160x190 cm bed with '800 wrought iron headboard, Swedish console, early 20th century cabinet, modern lamps and decorations with antique frescoes depicting Florentine lily; A kitchen equipped with snack peninsula; A single bedroom with a single 80x190 bed base bed sofa that hides another single bed (same dimensions), a console that becomes a coffee table for 6 people and a staircase to which it is forbidden to access; Complete a 90x80 ml bathroom with window and shower. The apartment is equipped with autonomous heating and air conditioning system.
It is located on the 4th floor WITHOUT ELEVATOR.

This location was great, centrally located and easy waking distance. 5 minute walk from train station, don't bother using the underground tunnels unless it's really poor weather. Clean. Comfortable. There were three in my party, and if you plan to prepare meals the kitchen is very small with little space to share a meal, unless you take it out to the Piazza rightoutside your door, which is fabulous. We bought several meals or snacks at the local markets to eat at the apartment. Those four (really eight, since each is two flights) flight of steps from street to apartment are long and steep if you are carrying luggage or bags of shopping treasures, so consider this if you are full of pasta and wine. There was a little bit of a view from the bedroom, but I would say this apartment is better suited for travelers who are using the space just to sleep comfortably and to shower and check in on wifi (free secured access), not lounge around. Mauro's communication for check-in and local info was terrific. There was live music on the Piazza one night which was a charming evening. Enjoy your stay!

The location is exceptionally good, near the train station and within a walking distance from the Duomo, the ponte Vecchio and all the main attractions of this incredible city. The apartment equipment, distribution of rooms and decor could be updated and think twice if you have trouble with stairways, it's a 4th floor in an old building with high ceilings, hard when you arrive with your bags and after a long day walking. The communication with Mauro and reception by Maria Rosaria were excellent.

This is a lovely little apartment in an excellent location in the city. You walk out the door, and the stunning Santa Maria Novella Church is right there! It's also walking distance to the train station which is very convenient. And the location of the apartment is walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence. Mauro got back to me right away with any questions I had about the place. His assistant Maria met me in the plaza, and was kind enough to carry both my bags up the stairs, since I have back issues. It was very, very hot in Florence when I was there, and when one of the air conditioners wasn't working, Mauro had the repair man come right away, even on Sunday night to take care of the issue and fix it. And on check out, Maria came again to carry my bags down the stairs, and walked them all the way to the trains station for me. And when there were no taxis available to get me to the airport, she found the right bus for me and helped me on with my baggage! If it weren't for her help I might have missed my flight. She is a real gem! My only recommendation is that there are quite a number of stairs to walk up to the apartment, so if you have trouble with stairs, it's something to be aware of. Also, while I was there, they were doing construction on the apartment below Mauro's. So if you are not an early riser, I would be aware of this and check with him to see when it will be finished. Overall Mauro is a wonderful host, and Maria is wonderful as well, and the apartment is in a perfect location to enjoy the beauty of Florence!
