Internal description: The apartment (45 sq. m / 484 sq. ft) has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and can comfortably accommodate up to 3 people. The property is on one single level and upon entering you will discover the living room with dining corner and the kitchen which is well equipped for a basic use. The living room has a double-glazed window. Following the corridor you will find the double bedroom (mattress is 1.70 mt width x 1.95 mt length) and there is also a single sofa bed, that can be perfect for a child, which measures 75 cm width and 2 mt length. The air conditioning is available in the bedroom. The bathroom is just in front of the double bedroom and it provided with bathtub. In the end you will discover a lovely terrace perfect to drink something outside to relax. Our opinion Ideal for a couple or a family with one child for short term rentals. Perfect for anybody looking for a property that is right in the middle of every monument of the city. The property is also near many restaurants and shops in general, so it will be easy for you to reach everything on foot. Air conditioning: in the bedroom Included in the price: Utilities included up to € 70.00 (for stays up to 30 days), final cleaning, towels and sheets provided, condominium fees. Not included in the price: Tourist tax of €3 per person (over the age of 12) per night, for the first 7 nights, utilities of water, electricity, and gas (for rentals over 30 days) if exceeding € 70.00; fee for registering the contract (which in accordance to Italian law must be written in Italian), for rentals over 30 days, equal to 1% of the total rental price (with a minimum fee of € 33.50) plus tax stamps. Area The apartment is located in the Santa Croce district on the eastern edge of Florence’s historic city centre. The area takes its name from one of the city’s most remarkable churches. The Santa Croce neighbourhood provides a rare glimpse of “old” Florence with lively markets and tiny leather and artisan workshops, including the flea market (Mercato delle Pulci) at Piazza dei Ciompi. The Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city’s second main food market after the Mercato San Lorenzo, is within close walking distance too. Furthermore, the area is just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s main cultural attractions such as the Bargello Palace, which houses one of Italy’s most important museums, the Casa Buonarroti, (the former home of Michelangelo), Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio, not forgetting the magnificent Santa Croce church and museum. You will also enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars and typical restaurants and pizzerias within the city. Three of the finest and most expensive restaurants, Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate are located nearby. There is also a good choice of mid-priced options. By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrianised streets and illuminated buildings it transforms into the perfect venue for an after-dinner glass of wine or evening stroll. For those choosing an apartment in this area Santa Croce offers several food stores, supermarkets, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service. Parking Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reMore

We were pleased with the apartment. Roomy, well equipped, and comfortable. A great location. We would not rent again on a ground floor facing the street again. The advertised outdoor space was less than we expected. A few problems arose and the Halldis people moved...More
