“Absolutely Fabulous !!!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Beautiful, super-large, very well-appointed and immaculately maintained apartment in this 16th century palazzo overlooking Piazza Santa Croce. The location couldn't be better, the apartment was superb and the management was exceedingly helpful in many different ways. It's not inexpensive, but it is well worth it. The only problem we had in several days' stay was that a ceiling bulb went out. It was fixed within 15 minutes of our telling the office about it. Absolutely fabulous.

We spent three weeks in August in the apartment Mimi on the top floor of Palazzo Antellesi and loved spending our mornings and many evenings and dinners on the terrace overlooking Piazza Santa Croce with the luminous glow of the Santa Croce church as our companion. The apartment had two bedrooms, the second of which served as a guest room for a visiting friend for a few days. The whole apartment is graciously laid out and has views from every window: one side facing Florentine rooftops and the other, Piazza Santa Croce. While it is well air conditioned in each room of the apartment, the cross breeze was adequate many days to keep us cool and fresh. Management is efficient and helpful, connecting by email almost immediately for any issue. There is an elevator, maid service if you want it (she was the most wonderful woman), and wifi. We loved the ease of the location - easy and beautiful walking distance to all the sights. While we enjoyed all that Florence has to offer, we felt lucky to be able to sit and soak it all in from high above our Piazza - a view only Palazzo Antellesi has to offer.

Our family (2 plus 2 teenagers stayed in the Casa Toscana apartment for 5 nights - it was our first experience at renting an apartment in A European city, and it could not have gone better. The rental agent was easy to find, got us settled in quickly, and gave us many useful suggestions and recommendations. The location is awesome - on the piazza de Santa Croce, just minutes walking to just about anywhere you want to go in Florence. The apartment had two large bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, a good size sitting room, and a smallish but adequately equipped kitchen. Overall, the decoration was really comfortable, bright and tasteful, and we really enjoyed having the extra space and comforts of home to relax in when we weren't out touring. And the leaving was as easy as the arriving. All in all, a great experience and a great place to stay, for much less than two hotel rooms would have cost.

We stayed in Palazzo Antellesi the summer of 2010. It was a great experience!! So much that we are returning in April 2014!! The apartment was beautiful!! A little bit dark, as it was not facing the Piazza but very confortable and spacious! Everything is nearby, me and my 3 children studied italian in a school 1 block away, so it was very convenient. There is a supermarket really close by, and lots of restaurants and cafes.
Definately a must!!!

My husband and I have rented several apartments in Florence during the past 10 years always for a month or more. We rented one of the top floor apartments in Palazzo Antellesi for 4 weeks in Jan/Feb 2012 and this was the best apartment and our favorite. We will return! The whole process from booking by email to the final check out was easy and worked well. The building is well managed with the staff on site. The apartment was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Even the slipcovers were crisp! Florence is a small town so almost any location works but being on Piazza Santa Croce is very special. It is also close to the San Ambrogia market and very wonderful local restaurants. The kitchen was well finished and we even gave a dinner party while we were there.

Room Tip: the website is very good and accurate. the photos are good.

Our family of six--Mom, Dad and four kids--spent two wonderful weeks in the Donatello apartment in Palazzo Antellesi in Florence. It's a magnificent three bedroom, three bath, two level flat, with a well-appointed kitchen and elegantly decorated with all the amenities. Really stunning, yet very comfortable and livable. The location could not be better, right on the Piazza Santa Croce. The owner was great--very helpful in getting us settled in at the beginning of our stay, and even more helpful and generous when we decided (unexpectedly) to extend our stay for an additional week. Our every need was met!

The apartment is right in the heart of Florence, with very convenient access to groceries, transportation (taxi and bus), walking distance to all the major sights, in a safe and secure building. You simply could not find a better, more luxurious, convenient, and reasonably-priced place to stay for your visit to the cradle of the Renaissance!
