Rosella's flat could not be in a better location...it is literally steps away from the Uffizzi and the Piazza de la Signoria, and just a few minutes' walk to the Ponte Vecchio. We appreciated the elevator, and the comfortable bed and nice linens. The kitchen was small but provided the basics. The bathroom and bedroom are up a fairly narrow staircase from the living/dining room. Both were roomy and pleasant, with ample closet space. Rosella was very responsive to emails as we were setting up our rental, and was right on time for checking in and checking out. Good Jo Ann 7/5/2018 1:43:00 PM
This lovingly furnished and very reasonably priced apartment is right next to the Uffizi, steps from the Arno, and minutes away from anything else you might want to see, whether you’re in Florence for pleasure or research or both. The layout is clever—it’s a one bedroom on two levels and the foldout guest bed in the living room is excellent. The internet is very reliable.

The small kitchen is well equipped with two electric burners, a microwave and a small fridge. Two Conad supermarkets are quite nearby, and there are great little restaurants around the corner.

Rosella herself is warm, stylish, and helpful, and has thought about everything in the apartment, from décor (as she says, no Ikea!) to local information and lore.

The posted photographs of the apartment are very thorough, and show the architectural charm of the place. You’ll notice that the apartment does not have views or direct sunshine, but it does feel airy and there are ample windows overlooking an interior courtyard. As a consequence it’s quiet and also stays cool in the heat. (I was there into late May when the temperature was rising and the crowds increasing). If you’re out in galleries, churches, and libraries during the day it’s a good retreat at night.

This was my home base in Florence for two months and I was very happy in this apartment.

This apartment is unique ... a two-storey space (bedroom and ensuite upstairs and sitting room and kitchen downstairs. Perfect for a couple. ... here you will want to be quiet and ponder Florence and the beautiful bridges spanning the Arno just steps away. We walked across the Ponti Vecchia most days; shopped in the mercato market just seconds from the other side of the famous bridge; an absolute relief sometimes to leave the crowds and go home and make a cup of tea or coffee and cook a simple meal) - the walls filled with paintings, photos and sketches, many of the Madonna - lending a comfortable, home-like, feminine air - enhanced by the wooden beam ceiling, cotto and parquet flooring. Books about Italian art and architecture, books about the Uffizi, we sat on the couch at night planning our days; the best thing about this apartment was that I felt I was in Florence. The soft lighting at night made us want to stay in, but so many nights we ventured out .. we loved our stay here; convenient and comfortable and helped to make our memory of Florence special - to read my Blog review, see Spring in Europe at www.eyeontheground.com Excellent Jessica Syme 7/6/2015 5:07:00 PM
“Uffizi Apartment” was the perfect place for me to stay for a two-week dissertation research trip in late June 2014. I would recommend it, and Rossella as its owner-manager, unequivocally.

The apartment is tastefully and elegantly decorated, very comfortable, and quiet and peaceful. Upon entering the apartment, after taking either the elevator or walking up three flights of stairs, there is a small vestibule with a coat hooks and a utility closet with any tools, extra trash bags, etc. that you may need during your stay. The kitchen is across from the front door, and has a microwave, two-burner electric stove, a small refrigerator, Italian espresso maker, and a sink with a drying rack above. While it would be difficult to make elaborate meals in this kitchen, I happily made risotto, pasta, veal chops, salads, and other foods that could be cooked on a stove.

The living room has a traditional wooden Florentine ceiling, and a large window facing out towards a small courtyard. Rossella has very sensibly put screens on all the windows in the apartment, so there is no threat of mosquitoes or other bugs coming inside. Having lived in numerous Florentine properties over the years, I can attest that this is a Godsend!

There is a new, flatscreen television mounted to the wall; it has numerous Italian channels and a DVD player underneath it. Rossella has very thoughtfully purchased various American, British, and Italian films, and I enjoyed watching “Roman Holiday,” “Ocean’s 12,” and “My Cousin Vinny.” Next to the television is a credenza with dishes and tablecloths and a dining room table that seats six; I used the table for both eating and as a desk, for which it was more than adequate. Behind the table, underneath the stairs leading up to the bedroom, is a very soft sleeper sofa, and a bookshelf with numerous guidebooks, art history tomes, novels, and other books.

Upstairs – the apartment is like an American-style loft apartment with stairs leading up to an open upstairs room – is a charming and romantic bedroom. There is a very comfortable king bed with lovely foam pillows (Italian-style “letto matrimoniale,” with two twin beds pushed up next to each other), two nightstands, a small bureau, two large closets, and most importantly, an air-conditioning unit next to the window. The A/C was easy to use, with a remote-control switch, and very much appreciated during Florence’s typically hot summers. Completing the bedroom is a whole wall decorated with framed art copies of famous Marian images. As an Italian Renaissance art historian, I adored going to sleep with all these beautiful pictures.

The bathroom is quite large, with a tub with shower, toilet, bidet, and sink. The washer is also here. It is a typical Italian washer – quite small and full of strange, for an American, nobs and settings. Rossella has very helpfully included easy-to-use English instructions with the washer. I must admit that I had some problems using it; I followed the instructions exactly, but the cycle ran for almost 6 hours (!) and then did not drain out the water. My black pants and underwear also came out with rust stains on them. This was the only bad experience I had in the apartment, and Rossella was very apologetic, professional, and helpful about it; when I checked out, she told me she would immediately inspect it and possibly call a repairman, and she additionally comped my water utility fee. I am sure the washer will be working just fine for any future guests as Rossella is extremely conscientious about everything in the apartment.

I loved the two weeks I spent in “Uffizi Apartment,” and hope I will be able to return soon. The apartment was the perfect place for me to work and live, and when my husband visited me at the end of my stay, a very romantic spot for us to spend our time in Florence. Rossella is everything you would hope for in a home rental owner-manager; so helpful, caring, friendly, and thoughtful. She truly cares about making sure her guests have the best experience, and it certainly shows in all the special touches she has put in the apartment: from the coffee and olive oil ready for you in the kitchen when you arrive to the collection of maps and guidebooks in the living room to the restaurant coupons she specially arranges for her guests. Needless to say, she is the epitome of Tuscan hospitality, grace, and charm.

I can totally recommend this cosy flat very near to the Uffizi Gallery. The main square, with many restaurants, was a few minutes walk away. Despite being so central, the flat was very quiet and we slept well. I shared with my cousin, so I slept on the very comfortable put-u-up sofa, and she had the double bedroom. A wonderful holiday.
