  • Holiday date: 08/06/2019 Rating: 9/10 Details of the review

    Location is 10-20 minutes away from most of the museums, though Palazzo Pitti is less than 3 minutes away. The apartment is very comfortable and attractive, just as the pictures show. However, the kitchen is small, really only room for one person when cooking or cleaning up. There is a bare minimum for cookware and utensils. The stairwell up to the 2nd Level is very narrow (~30 inches) and if you choose to go up to the terrace (5 levels above), the stairwell gets even more narrow and the steps very shallow. There is no shade or furniture on the terrace, so we didn’t spend any time there. We really enjoyed the stay with the exception of the noisy air con units, as both tended to emit a intermittent buzzing sound that was somewhat annoying. One of the air con control units was inoperable. It would be helpful if there were instructions written in English to operate the washer.
