If you have a family I cant recommend the First of Florence highly enough. Very well appointed and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and near shops and supermarkets. The arrangement that they have with the cafe across the road for breakfast is great - good food. On arrival we were greated with a fruit platter and wine. The apartment is located in one of those traditional Italian buildings and was just perfect. A great place to stay.

We loved First of Florence. Four of us stayed in the Casa dei Re apartment (2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (one with a tub, two with showers), 2 COMFORTABLE pull-out sofas). The hospitality of Laura and her staff were unbeatable. The apartment itself is absolutely gorgeous, the air-con worked fine, and the value is really amazing.

The location is also incredible: three minutes north of the Duomo. But one thing to consider is that this highly central location (and a nearby car-park for space-constrained central Florence) means that it can be quite noisy. Florence is a lively city with a LOT of young people who keep quite different hours to stodgy old tourists like we are. The sanitation trucks also make their way around the area at about 4 o'clock.

We are light sleepers so we probably wouldn't stay there again but if you are an average to heavy sleeper (one of us slept through all of the screeching and beeping) or can use earplugs, please don't hesitate to book here. It really is the best.

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.
