Stayed here for 4 nights, suite was exactly as pictured on website. Lovely building, apartment had tiled floors throughout, huge windows with quaint shutters and antique furniture. It was clean and comfortable, although there were about 6 lightbulbs needed replacing throughout the rooms!
The location was excellent, in less than 10 minutes we were in centre at the Dome, just following a straight road. Even from Santa Maria Novella station, it was 20 minutes walk. Everything in the centre is within walking distance, and I think this is the best way to see the sights of the cit, and saves on taxi fares!
The only problem with the apartment was the noise, it was incredible! On the Saturday night there was live music playing in the piazza outside, and every night until the early hours there was a constant noise of people passing by outside and sitting chatting in the piazza, then after the noise died down, we were awakened before 6am by the sound of the street being swept (and there always seemed to be bottles to sweep up!!) and the sound of people outside again.
Due to the noise, I would not stay here again, but would try somewhere not quite so close to the centre.
The towels were also not changed and there was no service in the apartment for the full 4 days of our stay, or on the 5th morning when we left, although this is supposed to happen every 3 days - at least there were extra towels in the wardrobe, and it was warm enough for towels to dry quite quickly when hung up.
Florence is a beautiful city, and there is plenty to see and do, I would recommend getting the Firneze Card, which gets you entry to about 30+ museums/ galleries and also allows free bus travel (local buses, not the open-top tour bus) and lasts for 72 hours, if you go to 3 or 4 museums then you cover the cost of the card, 50euros, so anything else is a bonus!
