Walking distance to train station and historic Florence. Kitchinette ideal for preparing small meals. Large apartment with very nice and spacious bathroom. Laundry facilities and internet service also available.
The bed was uncomfortable (could feel all the springs).
Location was good and the apartment size was good.
Kitchen facilities were insufficient and the shower rose did not fit the bracket and could only be used as a hand-held shower. What I saw on the internet was more modern than our actual apartment.
I liked having an actual apt. to stay in so the family could actually be together--not in 2 separate rooms like in the other places we stayed on this vacation! I selected hotel from guest comments on web and they were all very accurate! Will visit again!
Everything was great!
Very clean room and 20 mins walking from the center of Florence
Old fashioned, need to renovate their rooms
The size of the room and amenities were awesome
Convenient location to city. Easy 20 minute walk. Parking which is a big plus in a city like Florence
Decor needs a change. Very outdated
Large living room, and two separate bedrooms setting. About 15 minutes walk to the main train station. Hotel staffs are very friendly and fluent in English
Only one washer and dryer landry machine are available. And the dryer doesn't work well.
The kitchenette did not have utensils for cooking. It would really help, if some pots and pans are kept for cooking.
The apartment was spacious and there was a laundry at the Residence. There is a convenience shop close by and also a take-away across the road so we were able to prepare our meals at the apartment. The furniture was basic but functional. There is public transport to the city centre
On our first night we couldn't sleep because of the noise from a bar a few doors away from the apartments, the bar stayed open to 3.00am. Fortunately the receptionist found us another apartment so we moved the next day. There appears to be a problem with the whole building because you could hear every noise from plumbing to to people speaking in the next room. I don't think double-glasing the windows will help the internal noise.
The apartment was spacious and comfortable.
I probably wouldn't book it again as it is quite a walk to the historic centre
Everything was fine but the place is a tad too noisy with water works. Everytime someone in the next room or other room flushes... you can hear them quite loudly... very disturbing to sleep
The apartment is separated into two bedrooms. It gave us enough privacy to sleep. We love to share the sitting room and having a good time cooking together. The best thing is there are bicycle available free of charge for us to drive through all the nearby areas. The hotel staff are very nice. I will recommend this apartment to all my friends.
The two bed room aprtment has the other room too small while the other one is too big. I felt it is not fair for my other friends to stay in a smaller narrow one. Sometime the whilte clean towels have a little strange smell.
The Hotel is very nice and clean. Staffs are very kind. Also this hotel has good location for sightseeing
In case of petit room, It's too small. It looks not real room.
Spacious flat, easy access to town center, friendly helpful staff
Furniture and carpet a bit old
