Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jerusalem, Israel165 contributions103 helpful votes
The Relais Piazza Signoria is situated on one of the two main piazzas of Florence, and it is the absolute epicenter of the city's activities.In other words, one couldn't ask for a better, more central location. Given that, and knowing Florence well, I immediately requested an apartment that does NOT face the piazza, knowing that it can be very noisy. The Executive Suite which we got didn't have a view at all, but it was very quiet (Apartment 401). It included two single, very comfortable beds, comforters and pillows, a bathroom with a good, strong shower, a sitting area with two easy chairs, and a kitchenette, with a table and four chairs. The kitchenette allows for preparing simple meals, making life easier for people with dietary needs. There was very good heating.There is a lot of closet and shelf space in the bedroom, and the place is spotless. There is also daily cleaning. There are two tvs, one on the bedroom, one in the sitting area. All in all, a very pleasant, airy, light filled place to be. The director, Fulvio Lotti, and Laura, who helps him, were both very welcoming and accommodating. They are in the office from 9-5 daily, but afterwards there is no one available on the property itself. In case of need, one can call Fulvio, as I did one evening, to tell him that the elevator wasn't working. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and a place I highly recommend.

Property's Favourite Review
The location of these studios / apartments makes it a fabulous place to stay, with the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio both moments away by foot. Also by virtue of the location, it’s abuzz with tourists. We visited in the first week of April, and the piazza was heaving. I can only imagine what it would be like in the height of summer! We stayed in a deluxe studio. It was immaculately clean, simply furnished, and just as described on the website. The water pressure in the shower was excellent. Reading others’ reviews, I thought that it may be difficult to find the entrance, but it was easy. There is a small, unassuming brass sign next to the door and a code to enter. We were welcomed warmly, and the reception members were all very friendly. Breakfast isn’t served here - it’s so easy to go to an adjacent cafe, or buy provisions from the local grocery. The (very small) kitchenette has a fridge and the basics for breakfast preparations. Important to note: If you’re a light sleeper, you may wish to reconsider staying here … the noise from the street below - even with the windows closed - could be heard into all hours and does not make for a restful night’s sleep.

!!WE WERE CHEATED BY THE HOTEL!! I traveled with my husband and his friend. So we booked for 2 rooms separately. But we've got only ONE ROOM as we booked over 6 months in advance the price is quite low. And I know the reasons well, why we missed our room type. Because of they sold our room to the others who paid for more!! Suddenly we arrived the hotel they assigned us only ONE ROOM with sofa bed right behind the door and blamed to the agency that they informed the hotel that we asked for 1 room for 3 people!! Even though It was mentioned in the document they showed to us clearly that we booked for 2 rooms SEPARATELY. So the hotel is shameless and refused to correct the right room for us. They claimed that it's fully booked. If we want to refund all amount we have to contact to agency directly and find the new hotel ourselves. As it's almost evening time we could not find other hotel around, WE WERE FORCED BY THE AGENCY AND THE HOTEL TO ACCEPT THE CONDITION TO STAY TOGETHER IN ONE ROOM FOR THE FIRST NIGHT. Even they offered to upgrade on the second night that will move us to the other room with 2 bathrooms in one apartment, but i's not what we need. DON'T SAY IT'S UPGRADE, BECAUSE IT'S NOT THE CORRECT ROOM TYPE ANYWAY!! WE BOOKED FOR 2 SEPARATED ROOM, BECAUSE I AND MY HUSBAND'S FRIEND IS NOT THAT CLOSE TO STAY TOGETHER IN THE SAME ROOM AND IT'S NOT MATCH OUR CONDITION AT ALL. HOWEVER, WE HAVE TO STAY LIKE THAT AND THEY REFUSED TO PAY US BACK. WE HAVE TO CONTACT THE AGENCY OURSELVES TO FINALISE THE SITUATION. BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR FULLY AMOUNT FOR ONLY 1 ROOM. AT LEAST WE SHOULD GET HALF OF THE AMOUNT BACK. THE HOTEL REFUSED TO PAY US THE REFUND BACK. THEY CLAIMED THAT THEY SOLD THE ROOM RATE TO THE AGENCY LOWER THAN WE PAID TO THE AGENCY. IF WE WANT TO DO THE REFUND, WE HAVE TO CONTACT THE AGENCY DIRECTLY. WE WASTED ALL THE TIME TO TRAVEL, OUR PLAN HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE LOOSE OUR FEELING, THAT I CANNOT ENJOY ANYTHING IN FLORENCE AT ALL FROM THAT MOMENT. At last, even we've got some amount back from the agency, but it's not even half. And we could not get back by cash or back direct to our credit card. We've got back to the credit account which we booked with the agency. That means we have to book the other hotel in any of the world within 6 months, otherwise we will lost that amount. So should this call refund exactly?? WE WOULD LIKE TO WARN ALL TOURIST WHO'S ASIAN, BEWARE YOU WERE CHEATED AS US. They might think that Asian could not understand well english or italiano. And they didn't stay close to Italy and the distance might effect to the follow up for the refundable or compensation which we didn't receive any compensation from the hotel, nor the agency.

Clean, spacious, comfortable…such a delight after tiny hotel rooms in Europe. Even coffee grounds to make a cup in the morning. Even with the Florence Marathon going on, our apartment was virtually silent. The women at the front desk were delightfully welcoming and helpful with all assistance.

Stayed in Florence for one night and this was perfect. The location is great, 15 mins from the train station and in the main square. Rooms are spacious & clean. Fulvio & Laura are so friendly and helpful, going above and beyond. Check out is 11am which is also a bonus. Thank you for a lovely stay.

One night in Florence, this was booked by our friend travelling with us - absolutely perfect. Immaculate, spacious, tasteful decor, comfortable bed, safe, well run. All in all best decision for what we needed. Location was excellent. Air conditioning was great, facilities were just right for a short stay. Smart TV made life simpler. Will use again and would recommend to anyone.

To start, it’s an apartment, not a hotel, so don’t expect a big sign at the entrance, just follow the address, it’s a wooden door in between a gelateria and a restaurant. We arrived late, and the reception closes at 5pm, so they provided clear instructions to access the building and to get our keys to enter the apartment. To reach by car it’s not so easy, driving in Firenze is a bit chaotic do to tons of tourist walking by the streets, non permitted driving zones, narrow streets, etc, but we made it, and parked at a nearby parking lot they recommended us. The location is great at the Piazza della Signoria, next to Palazzo Vecchio, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and other mayor tourist attractions, you can reach walking. To the train station is a 15 minute walk. The room is big, with direct a nice view to Piazza della Signoria, the bed was big and confortable, it had a kitchen with fridge, pans, cutlery, and an electric kettle. The bathroom was big with a nice bathtub. All the contact we had with personnel was by chat, with very clear instructions and recommendations.

Great location. Great rooftop patio. Very poorly equipped. Broken dishwasher. Very little cooking equipment, coffee, spices. No washing machine. Elevator doesn’t go to the 6th floor. Poor communication. I requested the penthouse facing the square at time of booking (July 2022) and reminded multiple times. Got the lesser penthouse, diminished views, no washing machine, very few amenities. For a unit with 6 people…only 6 sets of dinnerware. And a sewer smell….

Amazing accommodation in the most perfect location, overlooking the Piazza Signoria. We stayed in an Executive Suite and received a wonderful welcome and information from reception. The room was made up and towels changed every day. This is the perfect stay right in the heart of Florence, very close to all the attractions. We found it a great base to be able to walk around and return easily throughout the day. Everything is well within walking distance from the Relais Piazza Signoria and the cafe beside the front door sells very reasonable coffee and croissants. Supermarkets are also nearby to put a few things in the kitchen area.
