Lovely, lovely place to stay whilst visiting Florence. Location right in the centre in front of the Duomo. Service was great - Antonio & Sarah were super helpful and professional throughout. Apartment itself is spacious, comfortable and loved opening the windows to hear the Duomo’s bells ringing and singers playing in the piazza. We were also travelling by car - the experience of driving right into the centre and convenience of parking right next to the Duomo was a great bonus. Thoroughly recommend it.

Booked 2 bedroom apartment as we are family with 2 kids. You can't get better location than this because from your room you can see Duomo , Baptistery and piazza. Most of the tourist sites like Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio etc are within walkable distance. Rooms are cozy, nice and spacious . Kitchen is equipped with necessary things and Few basics like tea, coffee, and oil was provided. We had room alongside the duomo and it was quite and comfortable. Little noisy at night if we open windows but we enjoyed those vibes!!! Elevator is small but its not a big deal. Serves the purpose. Highly recommend!!!

We love this place and have stayed here three times. The best feature is the location, location, location. It is right on Florence’s main square, right next to the the Duomo. From your room you overlook the square, the cathedral and baptistry. The large apartments are perfect for couples sharing or a family. We have stayed in both the 2 and the 3 bedroom apartments – it’s so good to find a 3 bedroom apartment for a family. 
LOCATION & VIEW: You can’t get better than this. The first time I saw these apartments, I couldn't believe that we were overlooking the Duomo and Brunelleschi’s magnificent red dome from our room. It really was as beautiful as it sounds and I could hardly move myself away from the windows. I must have taken 100 photos. It was even better in the evening, when the lighting on the cathedral made it look so dramatic and beautiful. Just about everything is only 2 – 5 minutes walk away - the Uffizi, Piazza Della Signora, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, Mercato Centrale. We found it ideal, especially in summer, to be able to pop ‘home’ and have a brief respite from the heat or a cup of tea when we needed a break. It is also less than 10 min walk from the train station.

SERVICE: Service was cheerful and welcoming on arrival and they made us feel at home. They also had a few handy restaurant and shopping tips. The desk is not always manned so you always need to take your keys with you, but that’s hardly a problem.

ROOM: The apartments are large and spacious. Décor is attractive and is suited to the style of the old palazzo building. We felt like we had a lovely space to come back to and relax in at the end of a busy day. The kitchen space is large and open and is well equipped if you are planning on preparing meals. We had breakfast each morning but we didn't cook. What was very handy was being able to pop out to the nearby Mercato Centrale and grab cold meats, cheeses and olives for an easy lunch or for something to go with pre-dinner drinks. Coffee, tea and some basics like oil etc are supplied. There are two bathrooms which is sooo convenient when there are more than 2 of you. Bathrooms were compact but very clean. Whilst they weren’t large, they were certainly an adequate size. There is a daily housekeeping service. Some rooms have a balcony. Wifi is free and very quick OTHER NOTES: • The apartments facing the front of the building can be noisy. A couple of years ago, we had a two bedroom apartment and the front bedroom got all the noise (the other bedroom was fine). This time our room was alongside the Duomo and we did not notice any noise at all. • The central location means that you are in a pedestrianised zone so you cannot drive to the accommodation. This didn't bother us as we don’t use a car in Florence - it’s just not necessary so we always pick up our car from the station as we leave Florence. If you do bring a car, there is private parking available nearby (35 per day) • The lift is quite tiny so you might need to do several trips if there are a few of you + big bags. However it is good to know that it’s there as sometimes smaller hotels in Europe don’t have a lift at all.

This was our first time in Florence and we were blown away by the apartment. We got a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom that had absolutely incredible views of the Duomo and the Piazza. You're also centrally located in Florence so all the museums, restaurants and tourist attractions are within 10 minutes of walking. The rooms had air conditioning, great decor and very comfy beds. The bathrooms were clean, bright and well appointed. The front desk staff was very helpful but we rarely had to deal with them after we got checked in. There's a small elevator that can hold a few people if you don't want to take the stairs and is handy for transporting baggage. This is literally next to the Duomo and so far access is restricted depending on the time of day. I highly recommend taking a cab or walking to the hotel rather than trying to drive there. Also the front desk is only open from 730AM to 7PM each day and outside those hours you need a room key to get into the building so something to be aware of. Also small note that the WiFi is free and very very fast which is a nice perk when you're chilling in your room. We will definitely be staying here when we go back.
