Clean and enjoyable with a view of the river
The owner was very helpful in arrangements for check-in, and the view of the river is quite pleasant after a long day in the city. It is not difficult to get around from here by bus, tram, and taxi. But it is a little ways from the bustle of piazzas and tourist attractions.
Two bathrooms are a perk for a unit this size and the three of us had plenty of space. However, the beds are just as firm as mentioned in previous comments and quite old. There is street noise, but in Florence I'm not sure you can get away from that. There were also a few kitchen items to be desired, but overall we enjoyed our stay, made use of the washer, and had plenty of towels and blankets. I would recommend this cute flat.
We had a nice family trip in Florence,very convenient location,close to restaurants,tram,supermarket.The apartment is very comfortable and has a nice view of the Arno river,it has everything we needed to cook and wash the clothes,a.c. works very well.Would definitely recommend for families staying in Florence.
Great flat in Florence
We had a great time in the Riverfront Flat. The location was away from the main historical center but was an easy walk along the river. The road was busy and noisy outside but the bedrooms were at the back and the noise wasn't a problem for sleeping. Christina met us when we arrived and was extremely helpful showing around the place and giving us advice for the area. She was always available before with to answer questions. The apartment was very clean and just as the pictures showed. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked several meals there. The gas on the stove went out several times which was a bit frustrating. There is a grocery store a short walk away and a nice little playground our boys enjoyed. Overall, a great stay.
Comfortable stay for 5
Christina was nice, kind and informative. She showed us how to work everything in the house including the washing machine, which was very helpful. Depending on your appliances the unit has an electric outlet adaptor available for the German type plugs which are slightly different (larger) than Italian plugs. There were 2 bathrooms which was nice for a larger traveling party. There were a couple things that needed fixing, but she came back the day after we arrived to fix the shower head (one cupboard needs a new hinge). The nearby street is noisy, but manageable with earplugs or closing the windows and shutters. When the windows are closed up the two bedrooms are nice and dark. The bedrooms are quieter than the living area, but the larger master bed does squeak a little for those that are lighter sleepers. We found that mattress to be harder than the typical mattresses in the U.S. The river is right next to the property, so if you enjoy photography you can get some great sunset or night river photos with the bridge and city lights. It is only a 20 minute walk to many of the Florence sights, but the bus is also an option if you’re tired of walking – we got tickets close by at the tram station. We enjoyed the nearby pasticcerias on the Piazza Taddeo Gaddi roundabout for breakfast and were able to find everything we needed at the Esselunga Supermarket about a 5 minute walk away (special note: it is closed on Sundays, but the Penny Market is just a little further southeast on Via Domenico Burchiello just off Viale Aleardo Aleardi and is open from 9-1PM). Ballerini Pasticceria Cioccolateria nearby across the river also got a couple visits. :)
Thank you for your very detailed review.
Florence riverfront appartment
Our week at Christina's apartment during the Christmas holiday was fabulous! The apartment had everything we needed; supermarket and restaurants close by, easy walk into the historic city center or metro station and parking just outside the door. The park across the river was an easy walk and absolutely beautiful. We could have easily spent a month there if we didn't have to go back to work... Thank you Christina!
Thank you JB, for taking very good care of my place!!
Hope to have you back in Florence.
