Cheap as chips appartment perfectly located to see all that Florence has to offer. Opposite the Savoy which cost more for one night than we paid for three. Good size clean accommodation cannot recommend highly enough. Florence is a city everyone should visit and cannot think of anywhere better to stay. Do not understand why people fault the service?

The reception area for Residence la Repubblica is located in the Hotel de Lanzi, which is only a block away from the Piazza della Repubblica and the apartment. I booked the reservation through Expedia, which stated on the confirmation that I did not have to confirm this reservation, but I learned of the reception location when I did confirm directly...

This is located directly on the Piazza de Republicca so there's a great view of the square. The hotel check in is a short walk away, which was kind of weird, but the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The security in this location is excellent. Close to everything. Clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!

The first problem starts with that the check-in for the apartments are at another hotel (advised on the booking) but that the address direction link they give is for the Residence so when you follow that you do not come to the place where you need to check-in. Then someone arrives to help you out rudely advising you are at... More

We stayed in a recently refurbished modern and trendy apartment for 2 people with the bed on a large mezzanine. The property is very secure and in a very central location. Check in is at a nearby hotel a very short walk away and reception staff walk you to the property. Reception staff are available 24 hours a day and... More

Firstly this is not a 4 star property. If I am being fair it is maybe 3 star most of the time. But in its current state which was is a building site I have to say it is closer to 2 stars. Because of the exterior of the building being worked on scaffolding and shade cloth completely blocks out... More

'You've got to stay there' was the encouragement from my work colleague.....Unfortunately I took her advise and booked 3 nights at Residence La Repubblica. I requested a room with a balcony (like my work colleague) but on arrival (3/4 months later) we were lead into a dark, dimly lit room overlooking air-con vents and some rubbish bins. I did receive...

Apart from our room being ready earlier than the specified check-in time and the central location, our two nights stay was full of regret. Firstly finding this hotel was a mission itself, hidden behind restaurants which we were constantly hassled by restaurant staff everytime we returned to our room. Place of check-in is about a 10min walk from another building.... More

This hotel is the reason Airbnb is doing so well. This was the only hotel accommodation during our three weeks in Italy and it's pretty much moved me into the Airbnb camp permanently. We stayed in a family apartment (configured for four single beds) during April for five nights. Check-in was uneventful (I knew to go to the hotel around... More

When we got to out studio, both windows were blocked off by scaffolding, no light an no view. The reception staff had neglected to tell us this when they made us pay up front. When we phoned to complain were were told no other rooms were available but the manager would contact us - no one has and despite emails... More
