“Good value, great accommodation”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Loved the apartment, it was light, bright, modern clean and comfortable.
Pleasant 10 or so minute walk into the City, easy access to bakery and supermarket.
The spiral staircase to the 'loft' room would have been impossible with a large case and tough for anyone unsure on their feet but totally fine for us, I’m not sure all of the rooms are like this so ask if mobility is an issue. Nice welcome and helpful staff, in all a terrific stay at a good price.

Room Tip: 4E - Spiral staircase to twin room not really suitable for very small children or those with mobilit...

I was with my family at the hotel La farina and it was a pleasant experience. We were kindly received by Ricardo, the host, who is very polite, friendly and helpful. The hotel is a kind of flat and the bakery and the supermarket are very close. We did everything on foot or by taxi and it was pretty easy. We loved it!

Very much recommend- very good value considering inflated Florence hotel prices. Free parking which made life very simple, walking distance to all the sights and a huge apartment! Brand new and comfortable, everything we needed and more. Very helpful host too which made all the difference. Would stay again. Thank you.

We stayed at La Farina Apartments in July 2013. The apartments were exactly like the photos on the web. They were clean, spacious, well furnished, and comfortable. They totally met our expectations. There were no surprises. They are located in a quite residential area which really suited us.Simone and Ricardco were amazing! When I was making inquiries about La Farina, they responded to my emails courteously, promptly and honestly. When we arrived at the apartments, they were very friendly, helpful and organised. We would highly recommend these apartments, and if we return to Florence, would stay in them again.

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.
