Start by saying this is basically a small apartment, not so much a typical small hotel. Kind of hard to find at first, but once located, it could not be better suited for a stay in Florence. We had a 2 bedroom apartment set out over two floors. Downstairs was a living room, small dining area, and small but functional... More

We stayed in a small studio apartment on 1st floor facing into courtyard. Ina greeted us with lots of goodies to get you started in the kitchen. There is really one room that has a small kitchenette with washer, dishwasher & cooking facilities. The bed is on a raised area next to a small area for lounging with TV. Bathroom... More

We had read some of the reviews and were a bit worried but needn't be. This was a spacious apartment on a split level giving you a defined bedroom and seating area. It was immaculate with a lovely bathroom. In some of the pictures it looks quite dingy but that doesnt do justice to it. The apartments are well lit... More

We were a group of five friends who spent 3 days in Florence. Nothing was too much trouble for this establishment.A complimentary bottle of wine, a basket of fruits, bread ham and cheese, a coffee machine..for a weary traveller who checked in later in the evening we were greeted with all of the above and made to feel as comfortable...

Stayed in the apartment together with six of my friends for three nights. The location is perfect and you'll have no use of any kind of transport system if you're not old or have special needs in that area. We walked everywhere. It was spacious, clean and really cosy. Four of us got to sleep in "real" beds, and the... More

Amaze with the warm and welcoming with Ina when we arrived. We arrived early and room is not ready. She readily highlight to us places we can go and recommended places for lunch. Assisted us with booking a day tour to Pisa at the best price. The apartment is amazing. Is a first for us that the fridge is stock... More

Our apartment had plenty of room, a kitchen, table and chairs and plenty of storage space, a combination washer/dryer. The bathroom was a great size. We arrived to a bottle of wine, fruit, snacks, cheese, water, prosciutto, all complimentary. The staff were great. The location perfect. Very secure building. When you arrive, there is a plaque at the front of... More

Our first night in First of Florence was also our last, as we left the next morning. My souvenir from Florence came from the First of Florence...my bottom is now covered in bites from bed bugs. Lifting the sheets to examine the mattress, we could clearly see the black marks made by an infestation of bed bugs. Personally I prefer... More

We stayed at the First of Florence last June, 2 adults 3 children and it was a really pleasant experience. The place is brimming with character, if you poke your head out of the window you can see the Duomo at the end of the street, the staff on the desk are cheerful and friendly. From the shutters on the... More
