“Good value for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

We saw the good reviews and thought as it is fairly new we would do better with this choice than a hotel. The room it self was a good size- double room for 2 (not as big or pretty as the photo's they have supplied though), very clean throughout- big wardrobe area- big shower and bathroom and everything is still fairly new which is always nice.
Apparently free underground parking which is useful but we didn't need. Quite basic i.e.. Ikea furniture throughout.
Downside- bit of a walk from attractions, service was ok (although we came to check in and the receptionist started checking us out?!) We arrived at 12pm and the room wasn't ready until 4pm when we came back (put luggage in a locked room). Reception is open 9am-7pm and there is a launderette next door. No restaurants that near. Would recommend to those with a car or bigger family and don't mind a walk to the Piazza and local bars/restaurants. Overall good cheap alternative to hotel.

Room Tip: Get a bigger room probably worth the extra money.

Very friendly reception, easy to reach by car and includes a parking spot. Centre of Florence only 15 minutes walk. Located in nice and quiet residential neighborhood. We rented the two story appartment, which sleeps 4 guests. Everything is very clean and well maintained. Rooms are tastefully decorated and include a kitchen block. Upon our next visit to Florence we would book this location again.

One bedroom apartment with modern furnishing and complete facilities and utensils for cooking which was a good tick for us. Parking was no issue and free. The staffs are friendly and helpful, they even dropped us an email beforehand checking whether we would check in during reception hours or late.
Really recommend this place!

Very nice and good size apartment. All looked new and fresh (with a complementary bottle of vine when we arrived). There was a free underground parking, friendly staff and all major sightseeing spots were ~15min walk away.

We rented two bed room apartment at La Farina with free parking facility.. It has got well equipped kitchen too. One has to prepare his tea or breakfast himself. The reception staff is very supportive they guide you well with a marked map for visiting places in Florence. The Rooms are spotless clean

Room Tip: Apartment 4 E is great

We chose an apartment here because we heard we would overpay in Florence for hotels.

We were absolutely delighted by the choice here. We had a split level apartment for two of us (more than we needed) but we still got more for our money than a double room in a hotel. The apartments had just been completed in April, so everything was brand new. Staff in reception were all friendly and helpful, gave us a map and called us a taxi. It took us about ten minutes to get to the start of the centre of town, and to Piazza San Marco. Really pleased with our choice. Had we come with a couple of other people or children, it would have been even more ridiculously good value. I got buzzbombed by a few mosquitos on night one, but vanquished them by night two.

We selected this apartment as it had free parking and we are travelling with a hire car.

What a find!!!!

We had Apartment 4B, a double storey 2 x bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen and living area. It was spotless and the beds very comfy.

It is 2.2 km from the Ponte Vecchio. It is an easy walk and only takes 10-15 mins to get into the city centre. It is a quiet area and very well lit.

There is a laundry on the street level which was approx €5 per wash.

The parking is behind the apartment complex and very secure. Our car did not leave the space for our entire stay.

Each room has air conditioning and the complex is very secure.

I would recommend this apartment to couples, small groups or families for short or long stays as the fully equipped kitchen allows for food preparation and storage.

The staff when we arrived were friendly and helpful. The free wifi is great and works really well through out the apartment.

Would definitely stay here again.
