Tariq: The location for this property was excellent!
The location for this property was excellent! Pretty much within a ten minute walk from all the main galleries, churches and sights in central Florence. The south bank was also a very easy stroll away. The stairs to the apartment are a fair amount but if you don't have mobility issues you can get used to it quickly and it helps to burn off some of the great eating to be had in Florence. The apartment had windows all around and let in a good amount of light. When cold outside it was warm inside and when hot outside it was cool inside, that was nice. Check in and out was very smooth and flexible. Diana and the team were very accommodating. If you need, there is also a free mobile phone for local call use and with information on local events, etc. We felt that there were a couple of negatives though - The floor was terracotta tiling, which was great, but it wasn't very well cleaned, you could feel it if you walked around barefoot. Given it's such a walk up we could understand why whomever cleaned it might not have been totally enthusiastic, but it was not that great when lounging around. The bathroom could do with an upgrade, or a good clean, and the bathtub floor was curved which made it quite tricky to shower in with wet feet! Finally there was a bit of an ant issue in the kitchen and bathroom, but for such an old building this was understandable. All in all we felt that the pros outweighed the cons but it would be such a great place with just a little bit more TLC.
