Shabby in need of maintenance in many aspects,handbasin not draining, wardrobe door fell off in hand on arrival and other furnishing old/broken not antique, though the building photographs well. Wall safe not working and comment was that it hadn't worked for a long time!!
Reception staff congenial but don't follow through.Given a lesson on how to deal with electrical fuses as power overloading an issue! Lift not working for 2 days and when reported response was, 'It's OK'.
Cleanliness level basic but only 2 washing machines for all apartments and drier used at all hours of the night.
Kitchen functioned, bed comfortable, airconditioning worked and supermarket not far.
Location was within reasonable walking distance of most tourist points of interest as Florence is lovely.
However the location has many negative issues especially if you have a front apartment. The piazza is a natural local hangout and drinking/busking spot, there is an all hours bar and a restaurant below so it is impossible to sleep until 3.30 maybe 4.00am every day. We got lucky on our 4th night ....it rained at about 10.30 pm!! Look for alternate accommodation.
