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

We stayed at First of Florence for two nights in August 2014. When we arrived at the train station with all our bags, we took a taxi to the accomodation. We were pressed for time as we wanted to go back to the train station to make our afternoon reservation at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We checked in and... More

Two night stay. Family of 5. Plenty of room. Two bathrooms of good size. Arrived to complimentary chianti and some fruit and prosciutto in fridge which was a nice touch. Very secure apartment building. Good location with short walk to Duomo. Would stay again.

We loved this apartment. From the minute we arrived the owner Laura made us feel welcome. When arriving in our apartment we were surprised to receive a lovely bottle of wine and fruit basket. The location is fantastic and walking distance to all attractions. The breakfast at the cafe across the road was fantastic. I became ill whilst staying at... More

We were so impressed with everything about this hotel, it was probably my favourite in all of europe over a one month holiday. The location is right in the middle of everything and is well serviced with nice restaurants and tourist attractions nearby. Walking around is easy. The complimentary breakfast is located in the cafe downstairs accross the road, which... More

Upon our arrival, we were greeted with wine and a huge fruit bowl in our room and a fully stocked kitchen. The price was excellent and it was in walking distance... More

Good Location: the Duomo is visible from the street outside, Accademia is just around the corner and you can walk to almost all the famous sites in... More

Spent three nights at First of Florence in September. We felt we received excellent value for what we paid. Location is very good, we could get to literally all sites within a 20 minute walk. Nice to walk out of the residence and see the Duomo three blocks away. Room was spacious enough for two. Had a small refrigerator and... More
