Hi. The Hotel Dali was closed for renovations during our time in Florence (Jan.31-Feb.4, 2012) but offered us one of their apartments. We were met at the hotel by their representative and escorted to the apartment, only a block or so away. We were given good information about restaurants, shopping, the neighborhood and siteseeing.
The apartment was less expensive than a room for 4 (at other available hotels), was in the area we wanted for siteseeing and was a wonderful alternative. Having a washing machine really helped, as we had been on the road for awhile.
We had a kitchen for breakfast and snacks (could have prepared more meals here but the Italian restaurants were calling). It was nice to be able to come back, relax, and have some space to spread out. Everyone wasn't in one room.
The only downside was that the Internet wasn't working while we were there. We should have contacted the representative to get it corrected, but it didn't matter that much to us.
This is not a place for the disabled, as it was 2 floors up and no elevator to use.

The hotel's peaceful setting is centrally located within old town Florence on Via dell'Oriuolo ("The Clock Road" in ancient Florentine). This little cobblestone road is still filled with "botteghe" (artisan shops), where carpenters, jewellers and frame-makers can be found at work.

They will be happy to help you by offering nice suggestions that will enhance your experience of the true Florentine style. ... more less
