This beautiful apartment was conveniently located 2 minutes walk to central Florence train station. The owners Chiara and Sergio were there to welcome us on arrival. The apartment is elegant and spacious and having a fully equipped kitchen was very handy. We found a little supermarket around the corner and cooked some dinners at our 'new home'. We stayed for 10 nights and saw so much of Florence just by walking. We took local buses to Lucca and Sienna for day trips and loved how easy it was from our apartment.
Thank you to our lovely hosts - sorry it took so long for our review but time just disappears once you get back home!
I will definitely be going back to stay in this apartment - it was everything we dreamed of!!

“Comfortable Unit, great location, helpful host”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This unit was in a great location with easy access to the Central railway station and the rest of town.
Sergio met us at the railway station. He was very friendly and helpful with heaps of advice on things to see and do plus many eating options. He is obviously very passionate about Florence.

The unit had 2 large bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, sitting area and separate TV viewing room, all in all a very comfortable set up.

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a lovely apartment on the s maria novella square, very close to the railway station, and all the sites of florence. Lots of great restaurants and the owners had a great guide they had made up for all the sites. The apartment doesnt look out on the street but this made it very quiet, supermarket close by, if you are travelling by train this apartment is perfect. if you need to wash clothes there is a laundomat very close by. I travelled with my husband and our adult daughter and her friend and there was plenty of room for everyone.

I rented the big apartment for a week in May, and I found the previous TripAdvisor reviews for it to be true. First of all, I was looking for a quiet place downtown, and indeed I found the apartment to be very quiet as the windows look into the courtyard. Secondly, the apartment looks indeed as in the picture: it's clean, big and nicely decorated with paintings. It's also very well furnished, and some of the furniture has artistic value too. The apartment is so well equipped that you won't need to worry about anything! You will find everything there, from kitchen utensils to iron / hairdryer and DVD player etc. etc.
So lots and lots of extra. We even found coffee refills for the espresso machine which were very useful since we had to leave early on two excursions. Another great thing about this place is indeed its proximity to the railway/buss station while being quiet. So if you plan to stay in Florence, and go on a couple of excursions, as we did, this is the best place to choose. And please do not miss out the Tuscany in one day excursion with walkabout tours.The lunch at the farm and the scenic drive through countryside are marvelous.

And finally, a word about the owner. When I booked the apartment I dealt with Chiara, her daughter, but she was busy during our stay so I met her mother, Anna Maria. She is a very warm and discreet person and as a true Florentine cares about arts.
Mille grazie, Anna Maria, for accommodating and helping us with advice on what to visit in Florence.

We enjoyed a lot our stay in Florence and Toscana, and would gladly come back one day
and rent again this apartment.

“The smaller apartment is amazing”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed in the smaller apartment which over looks the piazza Santa Maria novella , it was absolutely fantastic, the location and views were awesome. The lift is a god send. As well as the thickened glass.
My only complaint would be the sofa bed is in need of changing, the mattress is very uncomfortable and thin.

“Beautiful apartment in Piazza Santa Maria Novella”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We had previously stayed in a smaller apartment on the same floor, rented by the same family. Our stay in that (1 bedroom) apartment was so special, we were happy to see this larger apartment (3 bedrooms) was available this year when we had a larger group.

The apartment is newly refurbished, both in structure and furnishing, and is as elegant in person as it is in the pictures. The windows are large and thick, and open up into an interior courtyard. While we did enjoy the view into the square from the smaller apartment, the interior location kept the apartment very quiet despite it's close proximity to the square and the train station. The beds are very comfortable, and can easily sleep 6. The day bed in the tv room has a trundle bed underneath it. The water is consistent and hot, the wifi is strong, and the apartment is very secure. You must unlock 3 doors before entering. The kitchen has all the amenities you will need to cook, including salt, oil, etc. There is a small lift, if you need one. Lastly, the air conditioning works very well!

Most importantly, the Benvenutis are a wonderful family, who are the living expression of their name. Benvenuti means welcome, and Sergio, Ana Maria, and Chiara are such a welcoming and helpful family that I feel lucky to now know them and can't wait to return!

I traveled with my husband and my 20 y.o. son, we stayed for a week and we felt like real Fiorentine. We were very comfortable in this apartment, which could easily accommodate 6. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated; it has excellent internet connection, AC in most all rooms, and hot water. It doesn't have a washing machine but there at least 3 laundry mats near by. What we loved the most is the location, it is located right in front of the piazza Santa Maria Novella, there are cafes and restaurants right out the door, 5 minutes from the train station, minimarket, shops, there is a tourist information booth right in front of the apartment and an information center around the corner where we booked our all day wine tour for $55/person. The Duomo, Mercado and basilica San Lorenzo (the oldest one) are 5 minutes away. 10 minutes from Piazza Senoria and no more than 15 min. to Santa Croce and Ponte Vecchio. By the end of our trip we did not need maps at all.
We had a great experience and it was also thanks to the family who rented us the apartment, they were wonderful! Ana Maria, Sergio and their daughter Chiara went out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome; they gave us useful information not only about places to visit but also about events going on in the city. We’ll be for ever grateful to Ana Maria who helped my husband find his Italian roots, she is quite a detective. We are grateful for their kindness.
