Elegant and Spacious apartment in Florence Center - Newly Renovated - Free WiFi
This elegant apartment is located in the centre of the city, in front of Fortezza Da Basso garden, few steps from Florence train station (5 minutes walking) and only 12 minutes walking from Duomo square. It’s spacious (over 82 square meters large) …
We heartily second the review of the last person. Clemente was lovely and helpful, and the apartment spacious and high-ceilinged, clean, and in general beyond our expectations. Location was an easy 5-10 minute walk to the Accademia Museum with the David, and the Duomo, main square, and other central attractions are just beyond. We stayed with our two teenagers for 3 nights, and it worked out great for us. The bathroom was somewhat narrow, I suppose this could be an issue for larger people. Clemente kindly showed us the fuses in case of a blackout in advance, which came in handy when we ran the dishwasher, washing machine, and A/C all at once and knocked out the power briefly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
I don't often review things, but this apartment was incredible. The location, the amenities, and most importantly Clemente were all awesome. I felt like I lived in the city of Florence even though I was only there for 5 days. Clemente made us feel like we were locals. Restaurant recommendations and suggestions. The apartment even came with a cell phone. Every detail was considered. If you go to Florence I highly reccommend you stay here!
My friend and I have greatly enjoyed staying at this appartment. We felt like locals. Both bedrooms are good size and the living room/dining room area is spacious and bright. It is about a ten minute walk to the historic center and is also close to the Maria Novella area just beside the bus and train station. We would definitely go back not only to Firenze but to this appartment.
From the moment you turn the key and enter this sharp and immaculate little gem you will be delighted with it. My wife and I spent a couple of weeks in Clemente's exceedingly well-kept, attractive place and all our memories are special. The bed is firm, ample and comfortable, the furnishings are tasteful, the kitchen and bathroom are perfectly functional and well-maintained, and with its bright, well-lit living area it is a warm and welcoming home away from home.
Situated near the main bus/railroad station, where one can grab a train to Rome or Venice or a bus to Sienna or San Gimignano, but away from the bustle of the center, it is within easy reach by city bus of all the grand attractions of Florence, and just a stroll from Santa Maria Novella, the Academy, and the Medici Chapel.
Clemente, the owner, is fluent in English and a warm, friendly and attentive host, and if comfort with style is what you need on your stay in Florence you will not do better than this cozy nest. We recommend it very highly.
Stayed almost three weeks in this spacious well located condo. Particularly enjoyed the exposure to
the local residential district while being in reasonable walking distance to the tourist treasures located in the center of Florence. Bright and clean. Owner Clemente was attentive to our needs and was available for information and assistance without delay. We would happily return to this condo in the future or recommend it to friends..

This is a beautiful two bedroom apartment centrally located with a fully equipped kitchen and view of a beautiful park across the street. It is close to all the amenities and attractions of Florence. Clemente the owner was extremely helpful and gave very good instructions on how to reach the apartment and gave helpful suggestions on where to eat etc..The apartment made our stay in florence very memorable. Thanks Clemente!
Close to Florence SMN Train Station. Located in a nice area that makes you feel like a local. There is tons of space in the apartment to move about, great to be able to do our laundry, sit at the dining room table or on the sofa while checking email or doing a web search for a Seqway provider (do this) in Florence. Clean, comfy, AND Clemente was very gracious and helpful.
The apartment on Filippo Strozzi is elegant, spacious and totally modern at the same time! Clemente is an attentive and considerate host and made sure we were comfortbale and well oriented with the apartment features and area.
This property has been upgraded with many features and conveniences. It was sparkling clean and felt so safe. Internet connection was fast and consistent and all the appliances are new and state of the art.
The furnishings and the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped for dining in. The best cafes and gelatorias are steps from the front door!
The location is perfect - less than10 minute walk from/to train station - with luggage and 10 minutes to big farmers market, Accademia and about 25 minutes stroll to the Uffizi. We loved walking in the gorgeous park directly across the street on the grounds of Fortezza da Basso. The neighbourhood has plenty of banks & ATMs, gelatorias, restaurants, bars, small markets and services like hair & aesthetics and more. We felt less like tourists and more like locals by staying in this area. Access to the roads out of town to other major tourist sites such as Pisa, Lucca, Chianti, Siena and more is convenient. We rented a car for a few days to drive parts of Tuscany and kept it in the parkaing garage 1 1/2 blocks away.
We stayed for 7 nights and would definitely return for more stays at this elegant home. I highly recommend this property and have already suggested it to other family for their vacation next year.
Many, many thanks to Clemente for making our first visit to Florence so perfect! We hope to see you again soon!
We stayed in this wonderful apartment for 5 nights this spring. Clemente was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. The apartment is in a great location - it is approx a 10 minute walk from Duomo square where there are plenty of restaurants and other activities. You can basically walk everywhere from here - the longest walk we did was to Pizzale Michaelangelo and it was only about 30 minutes. However for being so close to everything it was very quiet for sleeping. There are also several coffee shops/gelato right outside the door. We were expecting to get a little bit more for our money here than in some of the larger cities in Europe, but we were shocked at how nice the apartment was when we arrived! It's very spacious, with nice new updated bedrooms/kitchen/bathroom. The kitchen is also fully stocked and we were able to cook several meals in. We would definitely stay here again if we are ever back in Florence, and certainly recommend it to others!
