Minutes walk to Pitti Palace, Pointe Vecchio, tons of restaurants and all major attractions in central Florence. At 21 Via Maggio, this location is within the zone where you cannot drive a car, so if you've got a rental plan ahead. Taxis are now reliable and abundant and quick in Florence, plus if you're staying at Orlando Palace you're a short walk to most things that are good. Our flat was "Leonardo" two kids + two adults. The accommodation was very comfortable, but incredible spare. No extra towels, blankets, pillows, paper towels, toilet paper or any toiletries to speak of. The lobby is only staffed on a very part time basis by a lovely man called Antonio. He is very helpful, but scarce. It's a beautiful furnished apartment without any amenities. In fact, I couldn't even figure out how to control the thermostat -- well, it didn't work at all. And I wore my coat to bed one night and had to use my airplane pillow to fluff up the worlds thinnest pillows. For the price, and the fact that you are in Italy, at a minimum, I expect a decent pillow, linens, soap, and the ability to control the temperature. The big plus, there is wifi and you can run up to four devices, but the strength isn't strong enough to run more than two. I would stay there again, but only if they would provide extra linens, soap, the ability to control the temperature, toilet paper, dishwashing liquid and a dishwashing brush or sponge. There is a washing machine, iron & ironing board, but no clothes line to dry your clothes! There is a supermarket near the Pitti Palace, but it would be nice not to have to spend your first day in the grocery store to stock up on things the hotel should have.
