When we booked our accommodation in Florence we were very happy to find somewhere quite literally in the centre of the city at an affordable price. What we were hoping for was to find a place where we could come and go as if it were our own home, for our time there, and to feel completely at ease to do as we wished. We were not disappointed.
Our apartment was beautiful, very clean, with amazing views out to the Domo on one side and to the Palazzo Vecchio on the other. The cooking and food storage facilities provided were more than adequate for preparing something to eat, but of course who wants to eat indoors when you have fantastic restaurants all around you!?! But to have the option to cook for yourself, grab a snack, have cereal, drink tea, etc, was very nice. Our bathroom was clean and presentable and even here there was a very private view, not at all overlooked, out to an aspect of the Palazzo della signoria.
Access to the building and to the apartment was very secure and you really felt as if you were coming home when you returned. On our arrival we met up with the family representative to receive our keys and go through the details of the accommodation. The Other facilities in the apartment such as TV, Microwave, etc, were great to have available, though little used as we spent most days and nights out.
If you're looking for a very central, very charming, very Italian, place to stay then I would highly recommend the Palazzo Uguccioni. Of course if you're looking for a 'hotel' that feels like a hotel and not a home from home then you may want to look to holiday in a different City entirely. Florence is a wonderful destination and this accommodation helped to make it even more of a special time away.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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! ... more less
