"Very central to both tourist spots, good eating places and little local and friendly shops. Quiet - no noise from within the building - good ancient thick walls, and very little external noise. Probably the quietest city place I have ever stayed in. Safe - as a solo traveller feeling secure is particularly important - both inside and out. When I needed some help with a door, it came almost immediately. Very good Internet connection. Because of thick walls, like many apartments in this city, phone reception is very poor. So I used Skype for communications. Anyone with mobility and/or sight issues might have problems with the two sets of stairs. Small bathroom - need to dry yourself outside it! "

"If you are looking for plush, five-star appointed digs, this is not it. On the other hand, if you are looking for a quiet, safe, economical, functional (read no frills), and clean haven after daily explorations of Florence and surrounding area, this is it. My wife and I liked this simple apartment the best of all the places we stayed in Italy. The apartment is situated on the south side of the Ponte Vecchio in a middle-class Florentine neighborhood, a relief from the constant onslaught of tourists in the old town of Florence north of the Ponte Vecchio. The apartment is an interesting eight to ten minute walk past shops and the Pitti Palace to the Ponte Vecchio. Bus service is also available within one and one-half blocks from the apartment (buy tickets at tobacco shop at bus stop). There are two piazzas within three blocks of the apartment—one which has a daily market for purchasing the freshest fruits and vegetables and the other which has some of the nicest restaurants (natives tend to eat here and not tourists) we dined at while in Italy. One of the restaurants caters to celiac sensitive customers. The apartment has two significant sets of stairs—30 steps in all—which may be a challenge for some people. The apartment is clean, yet small and compact. The kitchen has all utensils needed for food preparation, the bathroom tends to be a “Pullman” type layout with shower enclosure, and the apartment is equipped with a washing machine and adequate clotheslines outside the window to hold one full load. The apartment has its own hot water heater, so hot water is available as needed—this is not the case all through Italy. The apartment is managed by a father and daughter, and these were two of the nicest and warmest people we met while in Italy. The daughter speaks fluent English, French, and, I believe, Spanish, and she is well versed in the arts and history offered in Florence and the surrounding area. Apartment also has Wi-Fi available. We would recommend this place highly. When we return to Florence, we will try to stay here again. Also, when in Florence, always keep a detailed street name map handy when exploring the neighborhoods and old town. The streets tend to be labyrinthine. "
"Location (10 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio, 5 minutes to Palazzo Pitti) and fully equipped."
"Ligging (10 minuten lopen naar Ponte Vecchio, 5 minuten naar Palazzo Pitti) en compleet ingericht."
"My wife and I stayed in in this cosy appartment for a week. We enjoyed it very much. Especially the fact that it was so close to everything. (5 to 10 minutes walk to the centre) And Oltrarno is a wonderfull part of town. Lot's of restaurants, little galleries, Antique Shops and Cafe's. The reception on arrival was wonderfull. The owner gave us many tips what to go and see and the welcoming bottle of wine was a nice gesture. The apartment is is clean, cosy and equiped with everything. Even a washing machine. We had a great stay and will be back."
"The home of Serena, close to downtown, tourist attractions and shops, quiet neighborhood, the air conditioning in the room, the cleanliness of the accommodation and the fact that everything is expected to be "at home" improve the soundproofing windows"
"L'accueil de Serena, la proximité du centre-ville , des sites touristiques et des commerces, le calme du quartier, la climatisation dans la chambre, la propreté du logement et le fait que tout soit prévu pour qu'on soit "comme à la maison" Améliorer l'isolation phonique des fenêtres"
"The location was wonderful. Close to Pitti Palace, Uffizi, and the Old Bridge. Serena is very helpful with giving information about interesting places to visit, besides the regulars. The gift of wine was very lovely. The apartment was well stocked with everything you would need."
"All perfect place, from the reception of Serena - the owner - which is extremely gentle (also speaks Spanish well), perfect cleaning, every detail of comfort and pleasant environments. It is better than in the pictures. The location is perfect for those who want to know about life in the Florentine style. Location no doubt this apartment if I return to Florence."
"Todo resultò perfecto, desde la recepciòn de Serena -la propietaria- que es sumamente gentil (ademàs habla bien español), la limpieza perfecta, cada detalle de confort, y ambientes muy agradables.
