We had read the excellent reviews for this property and having spent two nights there can only endorse everything that has been said. The location is fabulous and the apartments maintained to a very high standard. A special mention for Laura who is a credit to the First of Florence experience.

All conveniences were considered from slippers to toiletries. The place was conveniently located to all major sites and restaurants. For breakfast, arrangements were made across the... More

Luckily we planned well ahead and were able to find this precious gem. it's not as much as hotel as an apartment. We were nervous when the cab driver didn't know the hotel. Then, when we walked into the "room" (aka 2+ BR apartment), my husband thought I misunderstood the price. He thought the price quoted was per NIGHT, not... More

We found this place through reviews and it has definitely lived up to our expectations. Staff was friendly and helpful. It is located right in the heart of Florence city. The room comes with quite a few pleasant surprises and the only thing we would like to change was the bed and pillows were a little hard.

We travelled as a couple with an adult daughter. The apartment was excellently located, walkable from the train station and within easy walking distance to all main sites, tastefully decorated and stocked with fruit, snacks, drinks, wine, pasta, cheese, etc. It had all the amenities a traveller might need--including a much-needed washer-dryer that worked very well and even a dishwasher,...

This was our third stay in the i Medici suite at the First of Florence. The room is spacious and is on two levels. It is very roomy for two people. There is a double bed and a pull out sofa, which would be perfect for two young children. There is a small kitchenette with a combination washing machine/dryer, which... More

We planned a family vacation to Italy in the fall. It's hard to find a room for four overseas. This location came up on Booking.com and we decided to try it out. It was AMAZING and very affordable. We had our own private apartment in the heart of Florence. We were close walking distance to all of the local sites... More
