#71 of 593 Specialty lodging in Florence
Palazzo Uguccioni is located in Piazza della Signoria - in the heart of the city center. From the palazzo, you step outside into this famous piazza's open-air museum, and walk to all of the city's most famous monuments within minutes. We are around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio, down the street from the Duomo, a short stroll to Piazza Santa Croce, and only steps from the Uffizi. You can't find a better location from which to explore Florence! Palazzo Uguccioni Some of the most important Florentine palaces surround Piazza della Signoria, and Palazzo Uguccioni is in fact one of these splendid palaces. The building, with its noble and harmonious façade, was created for Giovanni Uguccioni by Mariotto di Zanobi Folfi in 1549 to a design by Raphael. From the ground floor, constructed with large ashlars forming three arches, two stories rise above and are divided by twin columns of the Ionic and Corinthian order which are set on plinths. On the first floor, above the entrance, is a bust of Cosimo I (currently being restored). It is in this magnificent building that our five charming apartments can be found and where one may experience an unforgettable stay and enjoy some of the most beautiful views in the world!

Terrible! Worst room ever! AC does not work, room never got below 85 degrees downstairs and was over 90 degrees in the loft. They know it is hot and have a fan but the fan was broken. Room is horribly small and cramped. Beds are small, hard and uncomfortable. Sleep was impossible. I want my money back! We were robbed!

We have just completed our stay at this VERY conveniently located apartment. The location next to the Signoria and the authentic Italian feel can easily bring you back to how Florence must have been in earlier days. The views alone are priceless. Getting "checked in" was a breeze. Sadly there is a catch, or a few catches. The room is very spacious but the air conditioner was woefully inadequate to cool such a space on hot summer nights...the loft was more like a sweat box and the only saving grace was the fact that between 11 PM and 6 AM it gets cool enough to get a few hours of sleep with all windows wide open. Do not bring children if that is your plan because the windows are open wide and the apartment is easily 5 stories......Good segway...the elevator, you will be asked to only have two people max on the elevator. Listen to that advice as it is a creaking, slow, hot and scary ascent/descent that is prone to random 2 feet drops, free fall drops followed by 10 seconds of nothing we survived but we all agreed one day. In summary, if you go to Florence between October and April 5 stars, between May and September stay away.....If you go, respect the elevator I am certian it is sentient.

I booked a room with a view(pictures were very deceptive) at palazzo uguccioni. When I arrived, I found the chairs were broken, curtains had no pull so they could not be closed, water pressure in shower was erractic, there was no mug, no saucepan to cook medium quantities of pasta, no dishrack, a diluted bottle of soap,no english speaking tv channels(owner accused me of breaking tv when they were too cheap to hook up cable)lots of mold in shower and kitchen, dryer not working. I asked manager to confirm credit card number i used for deposit. she did not forward information;instead owner emailed me to evict me. when manager did communicate my request to confirm credit card number i was "allowed" to stay. worst hotel experience i have ever had!

We truly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is amazing. We loved looking out the window everyday and seeing all the activity in the Piazza. Very cute apartment for a family. It was nice that it had a washer and dryer. My only tip is to avoid the restaurants right outside the apartment - they were overpriced and served mediocre food. Just walk a few blocks away from the Piazza and you'll get a much better dining experience.

We stayed in the small romance suite and enjoyed the experience very much! Loved having the washer and dryer and the location could not have been better. We were right in the middle of everything! The lady who greeted us was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again - and hope to someday soon!
