“Excellent location, beautiful self contained rooms”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Our room was gorgeous! We were given a lovely mezzanine room with air conditioning, a small kitchen and washing machine plus cable TV and small living area. It is our honeymoon, and we were also given a bottle of local wine, bowl of fruit, and the kitchenette was stocked in case we wanted to make a meal ourselves (all complimentary). The B&B itself is only 3 blocks from the Duomo and only a block or so from the Galleria (where the famous David statue is housed). Breakfast across the road was also great. The staff were very helpful and we had an excellent stay!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a kitchenette and washing machine.

We stayed at the hotel First of Florence Residence in August 2011. Family (2 adults 2 teenagers). The location is perfect. 200 meters from the Duomo, right in the middle of everything.
Our apartment was clean, equipped with the best you can ask for.
Laura in the front desk was kind and helpful.

It's in an old building and you can feel the atmosphere the second you walk through the big doors leading of the street. Upstairs it's homely and the staff are really welcoming. Our room was huge with separate upstairs sleeping. It was also quiet. The kitchen is fully equipped and you are welcomed with some fruit, food and a bottle of wine. The bathroom was a bit small but you can't have everything. The location is great - close to the Duomo but not so close as to be in the tourist crush. Breakfast is across the street in a cafe - okayish. As ever in Florence parking is a pain. I ended up leaving the car about one and a half kilometres away.

With the very many choices of accommodation in Florence and our first visit to the city, we found it difficult to decide where to stay. We hit the jackpot!
The apartments were on the first floor of a typical apartment block, accessed by an old-fashioned elevator or wide staircase. Reception area was usually manned and always by helpful staff with a good command of English.
Our apartment was very clean, well appointed and finished to a very high standard. Although it was not large good use had been made of the available space.
Enough food was provided in the welcome pack to provide a snack meal on arrival and there were also ingrediants to make a quick pasta meal aswell as fruit for the whole of our stay.
We loved having breakfast at the cafe across the road which was frequented by the locals rather than a tourist stop.
Highly recommend for a comfortable, central loction in Florence.

Room Tip: We looked onto the internal courtyard which gave no view but was very quiet.

We are well traveled in Europe. This is an amazing apartment-hotel and a fantastic value. First of Forence is straight down the street from the Cathedral and in easy walking distance of everything in the city. Our apartment was on 2 levels. Really well designed. Had a beautiful kitchen. Laundry facilities. 3 fabulous bathrooms. Hi-tech everything. Great beds. Great service all around. This is THE place. Laura who manages the hotel is super. Extremely helpful and welcoming. I can't imagine that anyone would not love First of Florence.

We had a great stay at First of Florence. While an understated entrance and a ittle confusing at first in trying to get in, it was perfect for our family and being so close to all the great sights of Florence. Air conditioning was good and an absolute must for a hot Florence summer and the teenage kids were were very appreciative of wi-fi access.

Had read some great reviews before booking and we weren't let down and would recommend to others particularly if you have a family and hotel rooms aren't really suitable.
