External description:
Located on the first floor, 18 stairs - without elevator, of a building on via Porte Nuove: a fairly busy road that leads to Porta al Prato. Guests will find many shops, bars and restaurants just outside your door and the main cultural attractions in the old quarter of Florence just 30 minutes by foot or an easy 5 minute tram ride away.

Internal description:
The apartment (60 / 645 sq.ft) has 1 bedroom, can host up to 3 people and has 1 bathroom with jacuzzi bathtub. To enter the house you have to climb 18 stairs and you will discover all rooms: a comfortable living room, with dining table for 6 people, perfect for relaxation with a sofa bed for one person. Then there is a well equipped kitchen, a bathroom complete with jacuzzi bathtub and the double bedroom (mattress 160x190cm). The apartment is also equipped with double glazed windows to make it quieter and has air conditioning in the bedroom and in the living room.

5 outdoor parking spaces are available in the inner courtyard. Please note that none of these spaces is reserved to the apartment. If there is not a space available, you have to park your car along the street.

Our opinion:
Ideal for a couple or a family with one child. Also perfect for those who prefer not to be overwhelmed by the hectic life in the center of Florence while also be able to use a car. It will also be easy to reach all forms of public transport.

The apartment is located just outside the main historical centre of Florence within the area called Porta al Prato. This area of Florence is a 20-30 minute walk or a 5 minute tram or bus journey to the main cultural attractions such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo, the Bargello Museum, Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio. The Porta al Prato area is mainly residential so there is a variety of grocery stores, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafes. In the area you will also find the Porta al Prato railway station (hourly train links to Empoli), the “Stazione Leopolda”, Florence’s former railway station which has been converted into a vibrant exhibition hall used for events such as craft fairs, television and fashion shows and also cultural and business meetings. The Parco delle Cascine, Florence’s largest public park popular with walkers, joggers, horse riders and families, is just 5 minutes away by foot.

The Florence city center is a ZTL zone which means a limited traffic zone and therefore special rules apply to entering this area. This particular apartment is not located within the ZTL which is an advantage, meaning that driving to the apartment and parking nearby is fairly easy. Nearby the apartment you will find adequate on street parking, which you will pay for between 8:00 am to 8:00 pm approx. When seeking on-street parking please note that you must only park in blue lined bays as the white lined bays are for resident permit use only. Parking costs vary within the city with the highest charges being found towards the centre of Florence. If you prefer, you can park in a private garage or choose one of the several car parks (usually underground).

This property for rent is not a hotel, agritourism, B&B or similar, and therefore by law, extra services similar to those you may find in these types of accommodations, such as a reception, concierge or security, receiving mail, provision of meals and drinks, cleaning and change of linen during your stay, and amenity kits with soaps etc. are strictly prohibited.

  • 4.4/5 We recently stayed in this apartment and loved it. This apartment was also really affordable and from speaking to a few other people who were staying in Florence at the time, one of the better apartments in terms of cleanliness and good location etc for the price. The owner is very accommodating, helpful and lovely and even offered us a bottle of red wine on arrival. The apartment is about a 15 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station and if you have GPS on your phone, will be very easy to navigate to (we didn't so we got a bit lost). If the apartment really is just a base for travelling around and seeing the sights as we used it for, this apartment will be perfect for you, we loved it and highly reccomend it.
  • 4.6/5 This place is highly recommendable to stay for a vacation and for business. Beautiful facility, top location whit transport links and easy check in/out.
