“The ONLY place to stay in Florence!”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

I could write a novel on why Platinhome is the best in luxury accommodation! But there's only one fact that truly sums up how spectacular it really is. We travelled around Europe for 7 weeks, going to every tourist destination you can think of. I proposed to my now-wife-then-girlfriend on our balcony at Platinhome. Even now looking back on our entire strip, it is still the most amazing place! Not just in Florence, but the whole of Italy. I would go back here in a heartbeat (and we've agreed to return for a milestone anniversary in the future).

You will not find anywhere nicer than this to stay. It's worth the price purely on it's location. You can't get more central than this. Even look on Google Maps where the world "Florence" is (the city center) and it's literally on top of this hotel.

Stop reading and book this now. I can't say enough about it!

Room Tip: There roof top apartment is the best. Obviously the priciest, but it's worth every cent

The Platinhome was one of the best places I have ever stayed in! The apartment was stunning! And we had incredible views of the Duomo from our terrace. The jacuzzi bath was amazing, as was the rest of our gorgeous apartment! The location was absolutely perfect- right in the center of Florence but you would never know it from your quiet, peaceful apartment! Great restaurants and shopping nearby! Close to Santa Maria train station! The staff was extremely accomodating and made our stay fabulous! We will DEFINITELY be back here :)

Absolutely stunning apartments. Great location. We stayed in two different ones because our adviser said we must stay in the Duomo which overlooks...the Duomo but this was only available for 1 night. Both the rooms we used were fantastic and the view was great from both. One had a giant Jacuzzi bath and smaller patio, the other a double shower and larger patio. We stayed Saturday, Sunday and Monday and as the building that houses the four penthouse Platinhome apartments is all offices on the first 4 floors it was quiet until Monday so weekends are best - but that's not to say the week days are noisy, its just feels different coming in and out.

Close to centre but still peaceful. Helpful staff julio even came to find us on his bike when we were going round in circles looking for the car park. Beautiful apartments.. Websites often disappoint but not this one. The perfect place for a stay in Florence

Stayed for 9 nights in April, 2013.
Beautiful bath, fully equipped kitchen, perfect location, free WiFi.
If you plan to use a car you can find a parking (garage) near the hotel.
Highly recommend as for couples so for families with kids.

Platinhome

Look No Further!
We have traveled all over Italy in 4 different trips. This is THE BEST accommodation you will find anywhere! We paid more for much less in Venice, Rome, Lake Como, and the Amalfi coast. We were greeted promptly and amiably by Iva and shown to our apartment. This 3 year old luxury apartment is over the top! No expense was spared in furnishings.

First, the view: a small terrace with chaise lounges, a table for al fresco dining and a personal shower to rinse off if the summer heat causes too much sweat while sunbathing on the deck! The deck overlooks the Duomo, the Piazza della Repubblica, and most of central Florence. You are literally in the center of Florence. The hotel is in an office building so you have keys to the main entrance and also your suite. Our suite was on the 5th floor (apartment Vecchio)

The suite: Ultra luxurious king bedding with superb reading lights. Loads of space for hanging clothes and drawers and shelves. The very contemporary sitting area has a small dining table with two white leather chairs and a white leather love seat sofa rounds out the indoor seating. The kitchen is a masterpiece of design. It includes a Nespresso machine, microwave, dishwasher, waffle maker, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, glassware and serving pieces. The mini bar (fees for items) includes water, soft drinks, fruit juices, full size bottles of wine. Floors are marble and wood. The bathroom has heated marble floors, marble sink, toilet and bidet. The shower is a bit unconventional as it is in the middle of the apartment! Completely glassed in, It has capability for Irish mist, steam, or regular shower. (There is a curtain for privacy :-) We have decided we would NEVER stay anywhere else in Florence!


The 'little' extras:
Each apartment has its own flair but ours had
-two heating and cooling thermostats, one in the sleeping area and one in the living area
-a gas fireplace
-a wonderful telescope for close ups of the historical buildings or viewing the stars at night
-Your hostess will get you anything you want, from stocking the fridge with groceries before your arrival to securing tickets for museums to hiring a personal trainer! The list of possibilities is endless.
-Personal TV in the sleep area and full size in the sitting area.
-Phillips CD stereo

Room Tip: When you reserve, discuss your needs with your reservationist and she will get the best room for you...
