The apartments are very roomy. The convenience of the train station and the main area of Florence are just a few steps away. Highly recommend for anyone going to...

Stayed here 4 years ago and liked it so we booked it again this trip. We messed up our reservation and they went way above and beyond to work things out for us and accommodate us. Staff is very friendly and helpful with questions about directions, attractions, restaurants, shopping etc. Nice breakfast room and buffet.

What a wonderful quite homey place right in the midst of this busy city. The owners and their family members make up the staff here and they were all so accomodating in every way.

Ok, I'm not a precious person by any stretch, and am pretty tolerant, but the walls here are paper thin. I could hear every word the people next to us said. Not that they were loud - their voices just carried straight through the walls and into our room. Also, our bedroom appeared to share a wall with next door's...

Friendly, accommodating, and helpful staff. Good location to train station and walking distance to everything. My only complaints are slow internet, and that it gets hot in late April and the A/C was not activated yet so we were uncomfortable until about 2am when the room finally cooled down. Overall a great place as long as you don't rely on...

The best thing about this aparthotel is its location, just a few minutes walk from the station, shops and the Duomo, yet it is completely sheltered from the noise and bustle of the city.

Very reasonable price with spacious room, staff are friendly and the room is clean. Located in the middle of the city center, hence it is very near to all historial places, shopping, etc. Also just a 5 minutes walk to the main train/bus station, so very convenient to anywhere you want to.
