Amazing location
Amazing location right in the old town. Very well appointed petite studio apartment. For how central the studio was it was so quiet. Considering we were there on NYE we heard no noise at all.

If you appreciate a unique spot in a 16th century building with all the latest modern amenities, and if you have ever wanted to try living in one of those tiny super well designed rooms in the IKEA showroom, then you would probably love this place. But if you are even the slightest bit claustrophobic, or if you have any small mobility issues, then proceed with caution. To reach the space, you have to be able to handle a steep stone circular staircase with no handrail in one place, and a very minimal handrail near the top. The studio is small but adequate for two people; the design is clever, but when the wall bed is in use, there is very little space to walk around it. Still, it can be something of an adventure to be staying in the building where the Florentine Academy had its beginnings. We had some difficulties locating the owner to obtain the key to this studio, but with the help of a kind neighbor that problem was solved. Word to the wise: the rules for changing your reservation are strictly applied, something that we only learned after 4 frustrating calls to Expedia customer service and corresponding aggravation without satisfactory results. For our trouble, we were promised a credit from Expedia, but we are still waiting for that one.
