What you loved about GELSOMINO
“The only thing that was better than the apartment was the hospitality that Diana showed. Everything exceeded expectations. I was met at the door by her friendly staff and immediately felt at home. The apartment is in a wonderful location and close to whatever you might want during your stay. For an apartment in the center it was very quiet. I wish I could live there forever! 5 stars!” “Thank you so much for an amazing stay Diana!”
This accommodation is fantastic - I 100% recommend staying here to make your trip to Florence even better! From the outset the hosts were quick to respond and stay in touch. When we had trouble printing our tickets for some galleries, Sara helped us immediately and was so friendly. The location is great - it’s on a quiet street in Santa Croce and in walking distance to all the sites. The original features of the apartment really make it special and the private terrace is a great addition. There are maps and tips in the apartment to help you decide where to go - a nice touch. Thanks for everything!
Un véritable havre de paix à quelques pas du centre de Florence et a l’écart de l’agitation touristique. L’appartement typique florentin avec beaucoup de cachet est très spacieux et cosy avec tout le confort nécessaire et en bonus un charmant patio. Diana et son équipe se sont montrés extrêmement réactifs et arrangeants. Idéal pour découvrir la ville. Nous recommandons vivement.
This is a beautiful place in the heart of Florence. Diana has done a beautiful job decorating this location. It is VERY spacious with all necessary amenities. I would definitly stay here again!!!
Nous avons adoré l’emplacement de l’appartement qui est en plein centre de Florence , donc nous avons pu tout faire à pied ce qui était très agréable , les supermarchés sont tous à proximité aussi .L’appartement était magnifique très spacieux , confortable , propre. Le fait qu’il y avait une terrasse était très appréciable, et l’absence de climatisation n’était pas gênant du tout car il faisait une température toujours fraîche dans l’appartement. Seul bémol la chasse d’eau des toilettes qui fonctionne très mal et les moustiques en très grand nombre le soir donc juste faire attention et s’équiper pour ^^ Nous avions un petit chien et l’appartement était très pratique et safe pour lui ce qu’on a apprécié également ! Bref nous avons passé un excellent séjour ! Nous recommandons fortement !
Beautiful apartment with local vibes! Great location near the Four Seasons and famous markets (close to but isolated from the busiest tourist spots). Highly recommend
It is always hard to find a place the first time. In Florence, different portions of a street may have different names and it is only after the "I'm lost" experience that one can figure out directions. Once this was done, we found Gelsomino to be in a great location (but nearby San Ambrogio market is overrated, more like a tourist trap !), spotlessly clean, well furnished in amenities for cooking and within walking distances to both Santa Maria Novella and Campo di Marte train stations. We prepared our meals and hardly had to buy essentials like olive oil, spices etc: they were passed on by previous guests - Grazie to them ! Gelsomino delivered on its promises and we were satisfied. BTW, up to 6 people may stay there with its 2 sofa beds and 2 single beds but problem is there is only one toilet: that's why there is a guest number restriction. We found Gelsomino's courtyard fabulous for eating meals and drying laundry ...
I spent 4 nights at this beautifully designed, big and comfortable appartment. It is in an historical building and has its own little private yard. It was very hot - like 32-34celsium, but you hardly feel it, even though there is no airconditioner. Good neigborhood, and good location. Good connection with hosts! I look forward to retern there again!
Diana offered us really great recommendations for restaurants and bars. We went to the rooftop bar at hotel Cavour as per a recommendation and nd it was amazing. The place was very clean and very spacious!
relaxing and beautiful
Relaxing - lots of space - beautiful ceiling and lots of light. Cool to come back to after the heat of the day - loved the outdoor space for sundowners and chilling. Comfy bed on the mezzanine. All the essentials we needed such as shampoo/soap/washing up liquid/seasonings for salads etc. , kitchen well equipped, showers hot and efficient. Bus 6 from station stops 50 m away and easy to get to bus for Fiesole, 5 cafes within 200 m for bread/breakfast, easy walk to Duomo and other places of interest. Loved the botanical gardens . Supermarket a little away but well supplied and relatively good opening hours. We would happily return here.
Gelsomino became my home for a month and was everything I needed to help me live like a local for a short period of time. The location was great, easy walking for everything but far enough from the city to be away from the crowds. I would certainly recommend it

We highly recommend this lovely spacious apartment!
“The apartment is in a quiet street very close to all the major sights in Florence. It is very large with lots of windows and a small patio outside that we couldn't use in the winter but it was nice to be able to look outside. There were two large spaces with pull-out sofas and a loft with a large comfortable bed. The full bath was off the kitchen, and the half bath (no toilet) was very large with plenty of closet space, a shower and double sinks. The kitchen was equipped with a few pots and pans, dishes, etc., enough to enjoy breakfast or a light lunch. We had some trouble with the electricity to run the kitchen appliances, but Diana sent someone over right away to fix everything. We would highly recommend this lovely spacious apartment, especially for a longer stay.”
