We absolutely loved our stay at this apartment in Florence! It is plenty big enough for two people, spacious and clean. It also has a lovely historic feel with a wood beamed ceiling. Elena was gracious and welcoming, helping us carry our bags and showing us the amenities. There is excellent coffee and a fully stocked kitchen should you desire to cook. Also, a very nice dining table! The bed is a pull-out, but is automatic with a remote and quite comfortable. There are four very nice pillows and a beautiful comforter.
The most amazing part about the apartment though is, of course, the location and the view! You are looking out directly over the square onto the Medici Chapel, with the Duomo slightly in the distance, and wake in the morning to the sound of church bells ringing. All of Florence is at your fingertips... dozens of restaurants and shops (you're right in the leather district!), a 10 minute walk to the Uffizi and a 15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio bridge. It's an excellent location for getting off your feet before dinner, relaxing and taking a nap if you wish. The street is bustling outside, but with the windows closed at night it was perfectly dark and quiet.
We will absolutely stay here again when we return to Florence!!!
Also, if you want a very authentic Florentinian meal, eat at Restaurante Buca Dell'Orafo under the Ponte Vecchio bridge! One of the most incredible experiences, not touristy, and the food is to die for.
