This place was great. I can't speak highly enough of it. When we arrived, it was closed (so make sure you figure out what time to get there by calling ahead to see when they will be open!) We did arrive before check in, but wanted to get rid of our bags. We were very hot, and travel weary, but the owner greeted us with a big smile, and made us feel welcome immediately. He checked us in and provided us with a map on which he noted notable attractions, supermarkets, etc.
The apartment itself was very quaint, and well kept. Very clean and organized. We had a single bedroom with a pull out couch in the living room, and it was a perfect space for the four of us. We really enjoyed having a refrigerator where we could put our drinks and cups from which to enjoy our own wine. It is right off of a very busy street filled with amazing shops, gelaterias and restaurants, and right by a piazza where there were summer time shows to walk out and enjoy as well. The location could not be better. We walked from the train station (which is doable, but my sister's suitcase broke from the cobblestones, so I wouldn't recommend it), and we had to walk right by the duomo which is about 3 blocks from the hotel. If you stay in Florence, you MUST stay here. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at the Signoria apartments for four nights and were extremely happy. Danilo was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and gallery reservations. Our apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was even a washing machine in the apartment, which is a nice bonus when traveling for two weeks. And like everyone else said, the location is the best. Next time we'll spend a whole week here, and explore some of the beautiful areas around Florence.

We were 2 couples and were in an excellent 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment, in this great location. The apartment had everything, dishwasher, washer-dryer, fridge, etc. Danilo was very friendly and helpful, lugging baggage, suggesting a restaurant not too far away that was better and more reasonable than the pricey choices right near the apartment. We were there only two nights, but it would be ideal for a longer stay. (One caveat--the elevator doesn't begin until you climb a few short but grueling stairways).

Of all the places we stayed on a three week stay in Europe, this was one of our favorite! From tyhe moment we arrived, we were greet at the door (good english :)) and checking in right away! The apartment was great. A two bedroom one bath with kitchen with large windows in every room overlooking the busy streets. The original ceiling dates to the 15th century. The Palazzo Vecchio is right around the corner. All the night life of Florence with shops and restaurants surround you. The train station is a 10 min (very crowded) walk - take a cab - 6 euros.

We stayed the night and had no preconceived ideas when we arrived. First of all we were met by friendly staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. In fact, because of availability we were upgraded to an apt with a loft (at no additional cost). Staff took time to direct us to key sights in the city and a market to purchase items. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. Walk out your door and you are in the center of the city, steps away from the Uffizi gallery, several block from the Duomo with access to many eating establishments. We would certainly recommend this place to our friends and family and plan to keeping this place in mind if and when we come back to this beautiful city.
