The Duomo apartment in Piazza della Repubblica was very well located and perfect for two people. It has an outfitted kitchen (keep in mind that you must buy everything including salt, pepper, oil etc) and has a really great view of the Duomo. Of note, the wifi that is included is actually fairly fast for Italian standards. The bed is... More

What a find, this is an absolute treat! We booked on line to what I thought was the Duomo suite but later found out that it wasn't possible to book a particular suite on line - do it by phone if you know the one you want! We were allocated the Strozzi apartment - I needn't have worried.. it was... More

From the moment we arrived in the impressive, and eleganty appointed Republicca Square we were completely taken with both the vibrancy of city and the luxurious apartment that we thankfully opted to stay in. The Duomo suite simply exceeded all expectations and provided us the perfect base from which to explore this special city. We had an amazing view of... More

Although it took my wife and I a little while to locate the Platinhome (due to our own stupidity), we couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation. Located in Piazza Republicca, in the heart of Florence, it has an extensive terrace that offers guests a spectacular view of the Duomo. Other brilliant features include a fancy telescope and... More

My wife and I, having been to Florence previously, decided to try Platinhome, a different kind of hotel. The most evident change from most boutique, five star hotels, is the lack of a formal reception. For us, this proved to be a non-issue. We found the staff attentive and only an easy phone call or email away. We stayed at... More

We stayed at the Platinhome Repubblica – Piazza della Repubblica, 6 in Sept 2013. It was very hard to find as there were no signs outside with the Platinhome name on it, our driver walked around the Piazza looking for it. When we originally booked this place we thought it was like hotel style with, a front desk, doorman, and... More

The apartment, location, and view are breathtaking. Great customer service with flexibility and great restaurant recommendations. One thing to point out is that the apartment is in an office building which during the weekend is closed, this was certainly not a problem for us but rather quite appealing. BEST PLACE IN FLORENCE hands down.

I could write a novel on why Platinhome is the best in luxury accommodation! But there's only one fact that truly sums up how spectacular it really is. We travelled around Europe for 7 weeks, going to every tourist destination you can think of. I proposed to my now-wife-then-girlfriend on our balcony at Platinhome. Even now looking back on our...

The Platinhome was one of the best places I have ever stayed in! The apartment was stunning! And we had incredible views of the Duomo from our terrace. The jacuzzi bath was amazing, as was the rest of our gorgeous apartment! The location was absolutely perfect- right in the center of Florence but you would never know it from your... More

Absolutely stunning apartments. Great location. We stayed in two different ones because our adviser said we must stay in the Duomo which overlooks...the Duomo but this was only available for 1 night. Both the rooms we used were fantastic and the view was great from both. One had a giant Jacuzzi bath and smaller patio, the other a double shower... More
