I have just spent two and a half months in this wonderful flat. The location is perfect and the flat is charming and comfortable. More importantly, the owner is extremely helpful, accommodating and fair. There are no surprises, which is a huge bonus. I highly recommend the Uffizzi flat and I will book it again next year.

This is a great, very central place to stay in Florence. You can't be closer to just waking up in the morning and popping into the Ufizzi Gallery line-up! It was so convenient staying here for seeing all the sights of Florence. Though the apartment is not the sunniest, it is spacious for a central location and offers you a full bathroom (and bathtub) as well as an elevator in the building (great for those big suitcases!) Rosella was very kind to me, even offering me a free night at the end of my stay when I made a small error with reading my return ticket date. Mille grazie, Rosella! Excellent S.W. 1/27/2019 6:14:00 PM
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
