Irene: Perfect in EVERY way! We would love to visit again!

First - LOCATION! This apartment is walking distance from EVERYTHING. There are outstanding restaurants, drug stores, small grocery stores, shopping, ATMs, money exchange, right in the neighborhood. Walk right across the street or a couple doors down for an excellent meal. Walk right around the corner and you're on the famous Ponte Vecchio and all of its glamorous jewelry shops! All the major attractions in the city are within walking distance - many less than 5 minutes from the apartment! Second - VIEW! This apartment is located right on the Arno River. There are no motorized boats or large tour boats on this river (like you often find in other European cities), so it's QUIET! You have an outstanding view of Ponte Vecchio to the east and Ponte Santa Trinity to the west. See the sunrise and sunset every day with ease! Watch the yellow hued buildings across the river turn gold when in the sun gets low. Watch row boats, paddle boarders and water birds on the river. The views never disappoint. Third - COMFORT! This is a spacious apartment equipped with many comforts and conveniences. The beds and the furniture are firm, but there are plenty of blankets and pillows if you like to add padding here and there! There's plenty of heat and hot water. The hot water takes a couple minutes to get going but it is reliable. Towels and basic toiletries are supplied. Coffee and bottled water are plentiful. The kitchen has all the basics should you choose to cook at home. Our host, Alessandra has thought of everything. Hair dryer, extra outlet adaptors, lint roller... lots of extras are provided! Last, but not least - SERVICE! Alessandra is a friendly and knowledgable host who speaks perfect English. She is always available to answer questions via WhatsApp. She suggested many activities, restaurants, and money saving opportunities. Alessandra is so helpful and kind. I feel like I have made a friend in Florence! My group of four adults stayed at the Old Bridge Apartment in March 2019. It was chilly in the evenings and mostly comfortable during the day. Dress in layers because the weather fluctuates quite a bit from day to day! We are comfortable, sturdy walking shoes. There are lots of cobbled roads and you will want to have sure footing. Plus you'll likely walk EVERYWHERE! Bring Euros because many vendors prefer not to use credit cards, and some won't take them for small purchases. We loved our time in Florence. Thank you Alessandra!

Steve: Clean neat and modern. Perfect location. Will stay there again.

The apartment is a spacious 2 bedroom with a spectacular view. It is right off the Ponte Vecchio so it is not for those seeking privacy. However if you want to be in the center of Florence right on the Arno it is the place to choose. The view is outstanding and the host, Alessandra, is gracious and welcoming. Our family of four loved the apartment and location and found ourselves just walking everywhere. No need for a car or taxis to all of the main attractions. Also the Oltrano neighborhood gives you a great cross section of the local lifestyle and tourist lifestyle. Thank you Alessandra for a wonderful stay and your personal attention to our needs. A presto Steve Andrea Tessa and Jamie from Boston.

Amanda: What a fabulous apartment!

What a fabulous apartment! The location in the heart of beautiful Firenze could not be any more perfect. You are so close to the Ponte Vecchio you can hear the singers and bands play in the evening. The view of the river and the bridge and sunset is spectacular. Both bedrooms are doubles with their own bathrooms and works well for two couples. Alessandra is an excellent host and the apartment has everything you need.  We will return to our favourite spot one day soon ❤️.

Bennett: Great Location-Great Property-Great Host

From a location steps away from Ponte Vecchio you can walk to all the main tourist sites. And to some very good restaurants. The apartment layout works well for 2 couples, bedrooms are fine, kitchen more than adequate. Alessandra is most accommodating, will give you shopping and restaurant tips, and is available to help if needed. Did I mention the Arno river view? Just a great spot to enjoy Florence.
