The hotel provided everything we needed for a few nights. The wifi connection was excellent. The beds were very comfy. In the kitchen there was food and drinks provided ( fruits, wine, orange juice, croissants... ). There was a coffee mashine, dishwasher and wash mashine. The cupboards were a bit dusty and the safe useless. But the apartment was very... More

A nice apartment with all facilities, kitchen and washing machine. And a nice bottle of wine and fruit bowl . We had no plans but Laura helped us with advice and bookings, and also arranged airport transfers. Good location we walked to all the attractions, and lovely staff. There was so much to see in Florence but we only had... More

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.

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

So I said fine, I was going to get an upgraded room "Enrico VIII". On my arrival I found that my apartment in First of Florence was given... More

To our guests: How could a highly ranked hotel such as First of Florence with hundreds of stellar reviews each year on Trip Advisor and Booking.com get such a horrible comment from one of its guests? How could Laura, one of our best and most experienced receptionists, who gets so many letters of appreciation, be described as rude, not polite... 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
