When they say these residence apartments are close to the Galleria Accademia and the famous statue of David, they are not exaggerating. Literally we walked 10 steps to the front door and were gazing at David. Amazing. The small bookstore next door sold us our tickets to get right in and sold us our reserved Uffizi tickets for the next day (thanks to Francesca Alfani for that recommendation.) We walked to every major sight in historic Florence within 15-20 minutes from here. There is a small grocery about 5 doors down where you can pick up snacks. Cafes, bakery and restaurants are all right around the corner in the piazza and thanks again to Francesca's recommendation we ate at Ristorante Accademia a lot! The apartments are just that - large, spacious and elegant apartments - we stayed in the Santo Spirito apartment and while there is no longer a large carpet in the living room nor the wooden mirror on the bedroom wall, everything else is as pictured on their website. It was large and we could comfortably live here forever. The bathroom shower is big and works great. The towels were big, there were shower essentials at hand, we were supplied coffee, tea, sugar and the kitchen was adequately furnished (big refrigerator with freezer.) After spotty to no WiFi in other places we stayed it was such a convenience to have fast and reliable Internet. It is true that there is no lift and I was concerned because we had quite a bit of luggage but we were assisted both coming and going so it was quite manageable. My husband and I found this to be our favorite place to stay on our trip. We really felt at home and the Alfanis, even with a sick child to care for, made sure we had everything we needed for a most pleasant stay. They are wonderful hosts. When we come back to Florence we want this always to be the place we stay!
