The appartments are very nice witha friendly modern design. Everything is clean and at hotel standard. You also have free parking and it is a quiet area but still just a short walk from the city center. Highly recommended for a visit especially if you are travelling in a group.

La Farina apartments, Firenze. The apartments are about 10 minutes walk from the nearest train station (Campo Marte) or about 40 minutes from Santa Maria Novella. Staff were very helpful and friendly, and the apartment was spacious, comfortable, cool and had almost everything we needed. The furniture seems to have come mainly from Ikea, and everything was in good condition. The kitchen was basic but functional, and tea, coffee and water were supplied. We didn't use the cooker or dishwasher, but the fridge was very useful for keeping drinks cool. There was a dining area, and lounge with tv (Italian stations, so really not worth watching!) The bedroom had plenty of storage space and a good, firm bed. Unfortunately the air-conditioner dripped onto the picture at the head of the bed, so we kept it turned off most of the time. Although the bedroom was facing the road there was almost no traffic, except for a short time in the morning. We didn't hear any noise from other rooms. The bathroom was stylish and thankfully had a very good shower. Good quality towels and soaps were provided. Everything was clean. There was free wifi which we took advantage of in the evenings to plan excursions for the next day. After a very disappointing meal in the tourist trap on our first day we asked the reception to recommend a restaurant. They rang the restaurant for us to make sure it was open (many restaurants close during August), and to make a reservation. Over all we really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend La Farina apartments.

We saw the good reviews and thought as it is fairly new we would do better with this choice than a hotel. The room it self was a good size- double room for 2 (not as big or pretty as the photo's they have supplied though), very clean throughout- big wardrobe area- big shower and bathroom and everything is still fairly new which is always nice.
Apparently free underground parking which is useful but we didn't need. Quite basic i.e.. Ikea furniture throughout.
Downside- bit of a walk from attractions, service was ok (although we came to check in and the receptionist started checking us out?!) We arrived at 12pm and the room wasn't ready until 4pm when we came back (put luggage in a locked room). Reception is open 9am-7pm and there is a launderette next door. No restaurants that near. Would recommend to those with a car or bigger family and don't mind a walk to the Piazza and local bars/restaurants. Overall good cheap alternative to hotel.

Room Tip: Get a bigger room probably worth the extra money.

Very friendly reception, easy to reach by car and includes a parking spot. Centre of Florence only 15 minutes walk. Located in nice and quiet residential neighborhood. We rented the two story appartment, which sleeps 4 guests. Everything is very clean and well maintained. Rooms are tastefully decorated and include a kitchen block. Upon our next visit to Florence we would book this location again.

One bedroom apartment with modern furnishing and complete facilities and utensils for cooking which was a good tick for us. Parking was no issue and free. The staffs are friendly and helpful, they even dropped us an email beforehand checking whether we would check in during reception hours or late.
Really recommend this place!

Very nice and good size apartment. All looked new and fresh (with a complementary bottle of vine when we arrived). There was a free underground parking, friendly staff and all major sightseeing spots were ~15min walk away.

We rented two bed room apartment at La Farina with free parking facility.. It has got well equipped kitchen too. One has to prepare his tea or breakfast himself. The reception staff is very supportive they guide you well with a marked map for visiting places in Florence. The Rooms are spotless clean

Room Tip: Apartment 4 E is great
