“Lovely views over the historic centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

We stayed on the top floor and it is not recommended if you are not fit. Fantastic views from the terrace. Air con, well equipped kitchen and in the heart of the city. Easy walk to the main spots. Would def recommend going to the top of Duomo in the morning and we and the kids enjoyed the Da Vinci museum. The flat had all you would need and was a good size. It was well managed by staff who spoke good English and were keen to help.

Because the apartment is in the heart of the city it is in a mainly traffic free area and is nice and quiet.

Bear in mind the 50 euro cleaning fee on departure.

If you have not been to Florence before, please do. It was enchanting. These guys also have a smaller (and cheaper) flat near to Santa Croce which was equally charming and would be fine if you are travelling as a couple.

a stone's throw from all main historical monuments and 15 minutes walking distance to santa maria novella train / bus station to reach every place in Toscana. the green apartment (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) suits perfectly for four adults. Light enters in all rooms including the kitchen. For not so young people the only difficulty could be reach the elevator but a very willing staff is always ready to help you with luggage. Danilo & colleagues: thank you for your kindness!

This place was great. I can't speak highly enough of it. When we arrived, it was closed (so make sure you figure out what time to get there by calling ahead to see when they will be open!) We did arrive before check in, but wanted to get rid of our bags. We were very hot, and travel weary, but the owner greeted us with a big smile, and made us feel welcome immediately. He checked us in and provided us with a map on which he noted notable attractions, supermarkets, etc.
The apartment itself was very quaint, and well kept. Very clean and organized. We had a single bedroom with a pull out couch in the living room, and it was a perfect space for the four of us. We really enjoyed having a refrigerator where we could put our drinks and cups from which to enjoy our own wine. It is right off of a very busy street filled with amazing shops, gelaterias and restaurants, and right by a piazza where there were summer time shows to walk out and enjoy as well. The location could not be better. We walked from the train station (which is doable, but my sister's suitcase broke from the cobblestones, so I wouldn't recommend it), and we had to walk right by the duomo which is about 3 blocks from the hotel. If you stay in Florence, you MUST stay here. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at the Signoria apartments for four nights and were extremely happy. Danilo was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and gallery reservations. Our apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was even a washing machine in the apartment, which is a nice bonus when traveling for two weeks. And like everyone else said, the location is the best. Next time we'll spend a whole week here, and explore some of the beautiful areas around Florence.

We were 2 couples and were in an excellent 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment, in this great location. The apartment had everything, dishwasher, washer-dryer, fridge, etc. Danilo was very friendly and helpful, lugging baggage, suggesting a restaurant not too far away that was better and more reasonable than the pricey choices right near the apartment. We were there only two nights, but it would be ideal for a longer stay. (One caveat--the elevator doesn't begin until you climb a few short but grueling stairways).

Of all the places we stayed on a three week stay in Europe, this was one of our favorite! From tyhe moment we arrived, we were greet at the door (good english :)) and checking in right away! The apartment was great. A two bedroom one bath with kitchen with large windows in every room overlooking the busy streets. The original ceiling dates to the 15th century. The Palazzo Vecchio is right around the corner. All the night life of Florence with shops and restaurants surround you. The train station is a 10 min (very crowded) walk - take a cab - 6 euros.
