What can I say about a place that makes you feel like you are part of the family!
I had stayed at Hotel Aprile thirty- five years ago and had reservations about "going home "again. But to my delight, it was the most wonderful home- coming. Our ten day stay in September was amazing.There have been many improvements to the amenities i.e. bathrooms, lighting,etc. But the ambiance of the Palazzo and especially the wonderful people has not changed! Yes, there are new faces, but they are all smiling, helpful ones, ever ready to assist with any of one's needs. I was in desparate need of a "secretario" to translate a meeting with Florentine friends and ( Santa ) Luanna came to my rescue!
Signor Zucconi ( il Padrone ) deserves praise for surrounding his guests with a wonderful staff, at the desk, in the restaurant , as well as housekeeping!
I had requested rooms that allowed us to hear the bells of S. M. Novella every morning and they did not let me down! To open my eyes and see the campanile and the church was an extra treat!
We have been back to Florence many times, staying in different areas and accommodations, but I am glad we decided to return to Aprile. It is truly a Florentine experience.
