“Perfect”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We booked into the ground floor apartment as my partner is in a wheelchair. The photographs were true and we got exactly what we had seen. The apartment was equipped with every thing we could possibly need. Not just a washing machine but airier and everything we needed for a long vacation. The manager was so welcoming and explained where all the good places to eat were that were accessable and meals out were a delight. Everybody was extremely welcoming, helpful and friendly. The air con was a must and very welcome. The apartment was clean and spacious and we would definitely return and recommend it to others.

Dear guest
Thank you so much for your kind review.
We particularly appreciate reviews on our facilities in Francesco Apartment for guests on wheelchair
As you probably know it is very difficult to find an accommodation suitable for wheelchairs especially in historical building so we proud ourselves to have these facilities and we try to improve all the times we have suggestions from our guests
All our apartments are fully equipped and very much comfortable for medium stays so I'm happy you appreciated this as well. We just bought a dryer too for additional serivce to our guests
I hope you can come back soon with your friends and family members
Kindest regards
Francesca

The manager spoke English and was very helpful in helping us determine what to see in the short time we were in Florence. The location is very close to Ponte Vecchio and good food, but also on a very quiet street. We hope to return and stay longer at Residence Palazzo Belfiore!

This was our first trip to Florence and Fredrico was welcoming and very helpful with recommendations for sights and restaurants. Our apartment on the second floor worked out well for us and our 2 young adult daughters. The main bedroom overlooks the street and it did tend to be a bit noisy, but overall, this is a great apartment and location. The restaurant just around the corner from Palazzo Belfiore was outstanding! Fredrico recommended it and we were not disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palazzo Belfiore. As first-time visitors to Florence, Federico proved to be a gracious and friendly host. After sending our travel information, he arranged a driver to bring us to the Palazzo Belfiore. Upon check-in he took the time to ensure we knew which sights to be sure to visit and the best time to see them, and which restaurants were appropriate for our family of 4 in addition to providing a terrific apartment. Upon entry into the apartment we found a welcome bottle of wine, fresh fruit, and flowers. Nice touch Federico! Location is a 5 minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio and about 100 yards from the Pitti Plaza. The apartment had high ceilings, a kitchenette with table, washer, king sized bed and sofa sleeper, and a large accessible bathroom. Florence was our favorite destination on our 2 week trip due in large part to Federico and our accommodations. We'll stay at Palazzo Belfiore on our next trip to Florence!

Excellent properties at Palazzo Belfiore - we rented 2 properties (the Penthouse + place on 2nd floor with a patio) for 4 nights in June 2014. Large units (Penthouse had 3-1/2 bedrooms + 2 Baths + kitchen, clothes washer... lots of space!) occupied by 3 people each.... all 6 people enjoyed the accommodations. Great location close to Ponte Vecchio bridge (access to Uffitzi gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, etc) and Palazzo Pitti (former Medici family home) and nearby market. Great walking area, close to very good restaurants (our favorite was Mama Ginas) and Gelato stands (2 euros for 2 scoops - yum). Manager Federico is a gem - he planned airport transportation, suggested restaurants, and is a wonderful person. We want to return on our next visit to Florence... a very enjoyable experience. Grazie, Federico !!

Room Tip: Federico stated some units will get new Clothes Dryers installed soon... that would be highly recomm...

We received a very warm and dedicated welcome. The place was huge (too much space for us actually. The Medicis appartment is more for 6 people than for 4. ) , very well decorated and well set up. The terrasse has no view, it is just to feel the weather outside. The only problem was the noise at night (during the week) from the adjacent street where cars can drive. Don't hesitate to ask Federico for advice on restaurants/ tourism... and he can have you discount in many places.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the left side of the entry. Don't choose a corner room.

Wow, had a fantastic time at Palazzo Belfiore, definitely a home from home (or better if you don't happen to live in a 15th century palazzo). The apartment has lots of original features and lots of space - perfect for a family of four. The owner Federico was charming and helpful, with flowers and chocs on our arrival for my daughter's 8th birthday. The location is perfect - in the quieter Oltrarno district, with the Pitti Palace at one end of the street and the Piazza Santo Spirito at the other. A lovely, lovely weekend. We didn't want to come home, and if we are lucky enough to get a third trip to Florence, we will definitely book the Belfiore.

Many many thanks for your kind review.
We are happy to read that you enjoyed Palazzo Belfiore and you would like to come back.
We love children and always try to find something special for them
We are actually organizing a very nice list of things to do or see for kids in Florence to make their stay also memorable in their minds: art mornings, adventure tours, pizza and gelato making ...
So next time let's think about it to offer some of these ideas to you daughter
Thanks again and see you soon at Palazzo Belfiore
