Property Reviews 
spacious, clean and well situated
A TripAdvisor Member from Mumbai (Bombay), India,
Stayed for 0 days in June, 2014
I was a bit apprehensive to book it through a rental agency also because of some negative comments that I had read online. However apartmentsflorence.it is a an extremely professional organisation, they are quick, helpful and safe to deal with (from my experience). The apartment itself was exactly as it was shown in apartmentsflorence website and we were not least bit disappointed. Montana 2 bed apartment is almost on the bank of river arno. Everything that we needed was available (but for gas lighter / match box to light the stove) in the kitchen. They welcomed us with bottle of red wine which was much appreciated. The apartment is very spacious and can accommodate up to 6 people but there is only one large bathroom. There is a good collection of books including information about florence and Italy for those who plan to rent this place for slightly longish period. It's a half hour walk to the station or cab it up and it costs about 10-12 euros. It's an easy 5 min walk to ponte vecchio and uffizi and 10-15 minutes walk to piazzale michelangelo and Duomo (they are not in the same direction). Piazza Santa Croce is 5-7 minutes walk and tourist information in Santa Croce is a good place to start your vacation in Florence. Conad supermarket is near Santa Croce too, if you need to stock the kitchen while you are staying in this apartment. You could use "my tours", (all their tours start from SM Novella station) for tuscany tours, Cinque Terra, wine tasting etc - cost is reasonable and decent comfort and guide service. The tickets for the tour can be bought at the station itself or at tourist information centre at santa croce. Piazza Signoria is an excellent place to pass your evening , lots of cafes, lovely square with lots of statues (including copy of david) and lots of action. Piazzale michelangelo is a point to see sunset from and so is ponte vechio. To summarise - it's a huge, clean flat, in a safe neighbourhood and very well situated such that you can reach all major tourist attraction by foot. I was very happy with the apartment itself but for the noise in the nights in both bedrooms but specially the one facing the road. Drown yourself in wine or the noise maybe too much for a peaceful night's sleep. Also very happy with the rental agency through whom we booked this flat. Overall a pleasant experience and enjoyed our 5 days stay there.

Property Manager Response:
Grazie mille for writing about your experience at the Mentana 2b apartment. The location is amazing being so close to the Arno River and nestled at a small Piazza in the heart of the Old City. We are thrilled you enjoyed our services as a fully serviced management company as well and hope you will become one of our regular customers!

Your detailed feedback and notes regarding the area and the apartment are very much appreciated! See you soon, til then keep up with us through Facebook!

Family apartment in heart of Florence

This two bedroom apartment was located within 5 minutes of every major destination within Florence as well as a fifteen minute walk from the station. Although the apartment was a bit dated, all amenities were available - free wifi, flat screen tv with sofa bed in front of it. Good room heating and large bathroom with laundry facilities. We loved the location - we were able to pop in and out and felt very safe in that area. The apartment itself was in a secure complex with a bolted door. It was quiet also considering we were only 5 minutes from the Ponte Vechio Bridge. The kitchen was located downstairs with everything. A toaster and microwave oven would be useful as well. We would recommend this apartment for the cost as well as the rental company who were extremely helpful and approachable. I would recommend paypal payment in general for all overseas bookings.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you so much for writing such a nice review of the Mentana 2bd apartment.

Thank you also for your feedback on the amenities that you found were missing, the owner has been averted and we hope to be able to provide them in the near future.

We sincerely hope that the next time you are in Florence you will allow us to help make your stay as comfortable as possible using our concierge service for any tours, tickets, classes and restaurant recommendations!

We arrived by train so took taxi 15 euro approx to apartment which meant we were a little early and it was raining, however they organised someone to let us in early (all the agents we dealt with all spoke English which helped tremendously)- great service The apartment was just the right size for us (4 adults. Had everything we needed (although we have worked out that in Italy or at least all the places we stayed the dishwashers don't go but that wasn't a problem to us).The kitchen was on the ground floor and all the living areas were up a small set of stairs (again not a problem). The apartment was also gated for added security and we didn't notice any noise. The best thing about this apartment was the location, it was so handy to all the major tourist spots and everything was within walking distance including a supermarket. We would use this apartment again.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review about your stay in our apartment Mentana 2bd.

We will always try to accommodate your arrivals and departures as best as we possibly can and we are pleased that we were able to help you. I apologise that you had problems with the dishwasher, we actually offer a 24 hour maintenance service and we would have been happy to resolve this situation while you were staying with us. This dishwasher has actually now been replaced and is fully functioning!

The location of this apartment really is amazing, if it just behind and between the Uffizi, Piazza Santa Croce, Piazza della Signoria and two minutes from the Ponte Vecchio...all of this while being located away from the tourist trail so offers a refuge from the crowds.

We sincerely hope that the next time you are in Florence you will allow us to host you again, in the meantime keep in touch with the city and it's hidden gems through our Facebook page.

Grazie,

The wine was nice surprise! Great location and close to everything. The only problem we had was parking. We did not realize until we arrived that we could not drive in that area. We ended up parking in a parking garage a long walk away for the duration of our stay. It would be nice if apartments Florence would ask if renters are needing to park and offer help in that area.

Absolutely wonderful apartment exactly what was advertised .
Lynn from Calgary,
Stayed for 0 days in October, 2013
Our six day stay was absolutely wonderful in this apartment. It was very secure and a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio. It was very clean and very well equipped. It was the perfect home base for exploring Florence. One thing I did bring my own dishcloth and t-towel as I had read on another review before going that this was one thing that was lacking. I was very glad I did. Other than that there was plenty of clean towels no washcloths but that is Europe. The locked iron gate to get into the court yard to enter the apartment gave you a lot of extra security which we really liked. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, safe alternative to a hotel.

Fantastic location
Jane from Brighton,
Stayed for 0 days in August, 2013
We stayed for 10 days in august and all fell in love with Florence. It was absolutely heart wrenching to leave. The property was so centally situated which made it a joy to wander out late at night and not have far to walk home. We loved the property itself, which is spacious with high ceilings. The lounge has a ceiling fan which most times was enough to keep the lounge cool without using the air con. I have not given the property the full 5 stars as the mattresses have seen better days and were uncomfortably hard, which we reported. The owner has rectified the shower situation (from a previous review)as the shower position has been moved and it now has a glass panel rather than a shower curtain. The shower had good pressure and no shortage of hot water. We had problems with the wifi as it kept dropping out and had to try another connection which was time consuming. We didn't report it as it did eventually connect and we were out a lot of the time and was a minor problem. Apartments Florence was helpful the whole way through the booking from beginning to end. You need to bear in mind that the airport transfers are from Florence and not Pisa as we booked it and had to get a refund. We booked a shuttle bus to and from the airport via Terrorvision which drops you outside the train station in Florence and then took a taxi to the apartment. I think the idea is to ring when you reach Florence but we rang when we arrived at the apartment and within 6 minutes someone was with us. I would definitely recommend a holiday in Florence if you like architecture, shopping, eating out and sight seeing. I would also suggest that you book early with apartments Florence as we just missed out on booking a couple of other properties.

Kay from Arroyo Grande, California, USA,

The pictures do not adequately describe how lovely this apartment is. Just a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi, the apartment has two large bedrooms on the second floor, a large living room with a pull out sofa, plenty of blankets and hangers (!!!), and air conditioners in every room. The bathroom has a washing machine and a large tub with shower. There is plenty of hot water. The kitchen is on the entry floor and while this may seem off putting and awkward, we had no problems with the arrangement (and we are two women in our mid-60s). All correspondence was responded to rapidly and we were given detailed instructions. Very professional! We were met by a very attentive young men when we arrived. Caeser was very thorough and provided us with a number for a taxi as well as an emergency number should we need help when the office was closed. I highly recommend this apartment and this company.

Christmas in Florence
AndrewK from Nottingham UK,
Stayed for 0 days in December, 2012
We needed two rooms as our son was joining us from Hong Kong and needed his own space to cope with jet lag. That worked well. The weather was cold and dampish, but the air-conditioning soon blasted away the cold when we came back to the appartment. And the bedding was up to the cold nights as well. When we arrived the WiFi connection wasn't working, but Cesare worked on the glitch until he traced it, and by lunchtime Day 2 it was up and didn't go down the rest of our week. So the one problem we had was solved without fuss. The arrival and departure procedures worked fine. The appartment was clean. And it is well placed to walk into the Centro Storico, or along the river.

Piazza Mentana apartment was nice & spacious
A pleased family from San Francisco, CA, USA,
Stayed for 0 days in June, 2012
We enjoyed our stay at the Piazza Mentana apartment which was near the Uffizi and the Piazza Della Signora. The duplex apartment was a spacious 2 bedroom apartment. The eat-in kitchen was on the ground floor and the rest of the apartment was on the first floor. The bathroom had a bathtub which is not common in Italy apartments. There was sufficient lighting throughout and the beds were comfortable. The apartment had wi-fi which was great, but the cable TV only had Italian channels. The apartment had air conditioning in every room which was essential when temperatures soared over 90 degrees F during our stay. The apartment is quiet in the evenings. Cesare from the agency gave a warm welcome, provided directions to the nearest supermarket and and shared restaurant recommendations. We have one suggestion - the apartment should have dish towels to dry dishes. Overall, this apartment is a great base during our stay in Florence.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this apartment, it really is in a fantastic location! Thank you also for passing on your feedback regarding the dish towels, we will make sure that they are put into the apartment. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

perfect - except the shower
SFO GlobetrottER from San FranC\cisco,
Stayed for 0 days in April, 2012
Piazza Mentana could not be located more conveniently - 10+ minutes to the Duomo, but a world away from the insanity of the crowds. It was delightlful to walk through Piazza della Signoria twice (at least!) a day on our way in and out. The first wonderdful (and slightly un-Italian thinkg) was that when they opened the door, we were in the apartment - no 10 flights of stairs. After a long day of travel, that was very welcome. One flight of stairs in the apartment up to the bedrooms, living area and bathroom. Bedrooms were fine - my children shared a room and I had the other. The beds were a little on the hard side, but that seems to be the case most places we travel, so I don't know that it is their "fault" We didn't spend much time in the living area, but it seemed fine. I took off a 5th star for the shower...they have tried to convert a typical European shower into a western shower. There is an handle to hold the shower overhead, but if you use that - water goes everywhere... so we ended up using the one at waist level which wasn't as convenient, but it made for less water on the floor. They have also done a common European thing of putting two shower curtains together around the tub = it doesn't work really well. On the plus side, there is plenty of hot water and good water pressure. So after the first showers resulting in our one little Lake Mentana, we got the hang of it. We did actually cook (not much) and had breakfast in the apartment everyday. There was a dishwasher - but there didn't seem to e enough dishes to use the dishwashe, so I hand washed which was no problem, but a sponge would have been better than the washcloth I used. At check in, they left a bottle of wine (very decent stuff!) At check out, they called us a cabv- they were very friendly. I would definitely stay there again - maybe I'd bring a sponge :-) Piazza Mentana is fantastic

We stayed at the Piazza Mentana apartment for a long weekend and had a fabulous time. The location was incredible and the apartment really made the experience :-) The crockery and kettle could have done with a bit of an upgrade but it didn't detract from our stay. Would book again!

Property Manager Response:
Piazza Mentana is surely one (among several) of our best options. We are glad you had a fabulous time in there. All in all, we try to constantly upgrade our apartments utilities and make sure our guests have the best experience ever.
Hope to hear from you again, Helen. Grazie!

Truly Felt Like a Home away From Home
Ana from Miami, FL,
Stayed for 0 days in July, 2011
We've just returned from a 6 1/2 week stay at the Piazza Mentana apartment just off the arno River, and we miss it already. There's just not enough I could say about the place, and the people I dealt with at apartments Florence. From the very beginning, Apartments Florence did everything possible to make reserving and checking in a breeze. When we arrived in Florence after a long flight, we were tired and hoping for the best, but not knowing what to expect. (These days, you tend to assume the worst when doing business with an unfamiliar party.) But literally minutes after we called to say we had arrived, a very nice young man arrived to get us all set up. The apartment is spacious and well-equipped. I cooked quite a bit while there, and found the kitchen had pretty much everything I needed. The apartment's Wi-Fi worked well all over the apartment, which was great since I was studying and working remotely while in Florence. Lots of great natural light, and not too much noise, even though the location is so central, it's a pleasure to walk to any of the major sights. Even the Santa Maria Novella train station is only about a 10 to 15 minute walk away (something which we did multiple times on weekend excursions out of Florence). Regarding maintenance, we had just one minor issue, which was resolved immediately once we contacted apartments Florence. And when sadly it was time to go, the check-out was just as efficient as the check-in (though not as pleasant, because we knew we'd have to leave behind "our apartment" in Florence). All in all, I had a great experience at the Piazza Mentana apartment, and will highly recommend apartments Florence to family and friends.

Property Manager Response:
Ciao

We are extremely pleased that your stay in Florence was so enjoyable Ana. Little issues can creep up but we are always available to help 24hrs, 7 days a week. We hope you will be back very soon. Thank you again.
