Why Janine Dickinson chose San Giovanni
My dear friend Josie & I bought this apartment in 2000 because we fell in love with Florence over many years & finally realised our dream to live a Florentine life. Over this time we have been thrilled to share the feeling of being a Florentine with our guests, who come back time & again. Some of our guests come every year & many truly feel it is theirs too.
What makes this Apartment unique
Some of the things I love most about the apartment are: the sense of belonging - when the tourists go home at night the city is yours. I love being able to put my head out the bedroom window, look to the right & see Cosimo de Medici on his great charger, in Piazza della Signoria. I love Daniela's glorious fruit shop right at our door.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Absolutely fantastic experience!
We were so happy with everything that we will be booking again shortly! This apartment is centrally located in Florence and is walking distance from most, if not all, major attractions. We had an amazing time! Janine (owner) provided amazing customer service and the checkin process (Samantha) was a piece of cake. I would give this location 6 out of 5 stars if I could! Thank you for everything!!!
Had a great stay - super place with loads of character and it felt like someone's lovely home. All the life of a place someone has lived in for years.
To get to the main bedroom you have to walk through the second bedroom - so if you get up and go to the kitchen or bathroom you have to go through it. not ideal and not super clear from the listing, but also not a massive deal (just best be prepared for it as it might not be particularly nice if it is two couples)
Beautiful and comfortable
Ideal place to stay in Florence. Manager gave us lots of information about the sights and transportation. The apartment is large, had DVDs to watch and had air conditioning (helpful when Florence got to 100 degrees). A market across the street and the Duomo and Uffizi just blocks away.
Large and the best possible location
We were astounded by the apartment and the location. Every thing is just out side you’re door. Great host.
Amazing location, appropriately appointed apartment, very enjoyable!
The managers were helpful and available, it was all good.
Thanks Pierre. I'm glad you had a lovely time and I hope you will have many happy memories of Florence. Cheers
Perfect in every way
Firstly our communication with the owner was personable and prompt, instilling confidence right away. She gave us wonderful city info for us to celebrate our anniversary and there was even a bottle of Prosecco in the room when we arrived. Sadly for us our plane was miserably delayed but the lovely Mr Poalo was there to greet us and was able to explain everything to us.
The apartment is lovely, with large rooms and beautiful old touches showing it’s heritage. The modern bathroom, very complete kitchen, wonderful air conditioning, and terrific wifi offered modern touches for our comfort. Though in the city center it was amazingly quiet inside.
The location is perfect. A short walk to the river, 15 minute walk to the train station and all the main sights a short walk away. Taxis and buses were readily available close by.
I really recommend this place and the ease of dealing with Janine was the icing on the cake. Thanks so much for sharing your place.
Than you for the lovely review, Daryl. I really felt for you with the delayed flight and I am so glad that Florence made up for it in the end and that you had a lovely and memorable anniversary there. So many guests pass important moments in the house, as do we ourselves and I love knowing that so many memories remain there. Warmest good wishes. Jan
Gorgeous medieval surroundings. The Uffizi is only 50m away. Gallleries, museums, cafes, restaurants & bars. No traffic.
