The apartment is very clean and comfortable. Diana is very helpful. The location is great with many cafés and good restaurant in the surrounding. We 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 ...

Great Airbnb in the heart of Florence. Loved the ambiance and the ice cold AC. Lots of stairs to lug suitcases but was so comfy and close to everything that it wa worth it

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!

The apartment was wonderful. While the upstairs loft bedrooms had low ceilings, the privacy and layout of the space were wonderful. As windows had no screens, we had issues with mosquitos the first night, but learned to keep windows open during the day and closed in the p.m. to minimize bugs. Bathroom and washing machine were terrific.

Diana was a wonderful hostess. The apartment was beautiful, a real Tuscan gem! My favourite moments were on the balcony listening to the bells of all the historic churches in Florence toll. It was a truly beautiful spot, centrally located and easy to find. Diana was available and happy to help when we had questions. Her restaurant recommendations were some of our favourite meals on the trip. Highly recommend.

Caryl: 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.

Loved everything, especially Diana being so helpful and the handyphone was very “handy”. Apartment was very spacious and well air-conditioned with great amenities, wonderful location and was a great value. Only thing that was a little bothersome was that the bed was a little harder than we preferred, but that is entirely personal.

Georgina: A fantastic base

Diana’s apartment is a fantastic base from which to explore Florence. Everywhere was within easy walking distance and the vecchio bridge is right on your doorstep. The apartment itself is fairly small but we didn’t need anything bigger as we really just used it as a base for our sightseeing. The terrace is amazing and the views are incredible- a really special touch. Diana was great at keeping in touch and her directions were helpful and easy to follow

The apartment is absolutely stunning and the perfect place to enjoy Florence. Super central, yet having a quiet bedroom on the inside part of the house. Wonderfully designed with a lot of taste, makes you really enjoy your time in your Florentine home. I can’t wait to be back!! Thank you Diana

Gaia: Casetta Deliziosa

Situata a due passi da Ponte Vecchio, percorrendo le stradelle caratteristiche di Oltrarno, ci si allontana dai rumori e dal vociare dei turisti e ci si immerge in una quiete totale, dove l'unico rumore è quello del canto degli uccellini. Adatta ad una o due persone che non abbiano troppe pretese di spazi. La casa è piccolina ma gli spazi e la luminosità sono utilizzati nel migliore dei modi e non risulta angusta. Da apprezzare la disponibilità del personale di Acacia apartment, pronto a soddisfare qualsiasi nostra richiesta o informazione. Assolutamente consigliata!

The place has a great location and amazing view, you do have to go up a 3 flights of stairs so be prepared. The kitchen was lacking a little bit in my opinion. The rest of the place was very nice. I would stay there again.

A quiet respite in the heart of Florence. I loved the vibe of the former convent and couldn’t get over how peaceful it was. Our host met us at the piazza near by as I was new to Florence and don’t speak Italian. So hospitable and responsive. Highly recommend booking this property. We stayed as a group of three for three nights.

Tim: perfect

Diana’s apartment was perfect for my week in Florence. The home was spacious and clean with everything I needed to be comfortable. The garden is wonderful and fantastic for relaxing for breakfast or after a long day walking through the city. Communication was amazing and made everything so easy for checking in and out. Position is very convenient and close to everything that Firenze has to offer. Thanks again Diana, I would highly recommend your apartment to anyone coming to visit.

Mia: clean and well maintained apartment

We stayed 3 nights with my girl friends in Diana's apartment. The location is perfect, most important sites in Florence are at walking distance. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. We had everything we needed, there is enough space in two bedrooms for 4 persons. The small kitchen was ideal to prepare some quick breakfast or snack. I would definitely recommend the apartment for short vacations in Florence!

Diann: super nice place

Diana, is a wonderful hostess. She responded quickly to inquiries. Check in was very smooth. Her place is super nice and the terrace is the place we used the most, wonderful outdoor space and beautifully decorated with lots of plants and flowers. The cats were a great plus, our whole crew enjoyed having them visit. Will recommend this place to family and friends.
