Couldn't have been better. Very welcoming arrival - we emailed our flight details in advance & were able to have our apartment from 11am. Really helpful staff, totally flexible & accommodating. Apartment nicely furnished, comfortable bed & surprisingly comfortable sofa bed. No problems with kitchen, some reviewers have mentioned lack of dish soap, we had tea towel, bin liners, dish... More

Had to book for one night. 2 adults with to children (8/15). We got apartment 4 and it was great. We had a balcony and a fully equipped kitchen. There where three separate aircondition intallments. Across the street we had some takeout pizza from Gusta. Probably the best - according to the crowd. The Pitti Palace was just a 2... More

Minutes walk to Pitti Palace, Pointe Vecchio, tons of restaurants and all major attractions in central Florence. At 21 Via Maggio, this location is within the zone where you cannot drive a car, so if you've got a rental plan ahead. Taxis are now reliable and abundant and quick in Florence, plus if you're staying at Orlando Palace you're a... More

The location on Via Maggio is fantastic, just a few minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi but away from the worst of the crowds that destroy Florence in the summer. Whilst our room was beautiful, with a splendid painted ceiling and a large bed in the middle, it was poorly equipped for an apartment. There was no microwave, no... More

Our trip in Florense was so nice until the very end. A fleezing incident had happened late at night before our departure. The shower glass sliding door had crashed down when one of us, Kuko, had tried to close the door to take a shower. "Help!" We found Kuko in the bathroom bleeding with glass splinters all over her body.... More

Location is great. However, this was our worst experience during the visit in Italy. The website said each room has a kitchen & washing machine - it had none. The room we got was on the ground floor beyond the receptionist - very strange. The room didn't have any warmth and didn't look like a place you would like to... More

The room was poor and wet. It was a sort of garage with a view open to anybody. The bathroom had no foam bath, or shampoo. There was only a hand soap dispenser. The room was just behind the reception and close to the elevator.

My family stayed at the Orlando Palace this past May. Here are our pros and cons: PROS - The location is unbeatable, the apartments were gorgeous. Stay on the second floor if you can; there are wonderful painted ceilings in there! - We loved having a kitchen. - We stayed on the fourth floor and had a great view off... More

Palazzo Orlando Apartments are very central and close to the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio as well as within easy reach of the Pitti Palace and the Uffici Palace. Just across the road is the best pizza in Florence - Gusta Pizza. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was enormous. My only comment is that our room was just... More

Orlando Palace is ideally located on Via Maggio in the beautiful Oltrarno area of Florence. If you are looking for a place to stay that is out of the main tourist centre of Florence but still just a few minutes walk to all the major sites of Uffizi, Duomo and Ponte Vecchio then this place is for you.
