Thanks, tripadvisor! Our first visit to Florence, and we (Mom, Dad & grown daughter) lucked into this modern, up-to-date apartment in a 15th century building, across Via Ricasoli from the Galleria Accademia (David). Arriving at Firenze SMN, we took Francesca's advice and loaded our luggage into a taxi (the Palazzo is an easy walk from train station, but it could be a bit awkward loaded down with luggage).
Owner Francesca was on holiday when we arrived in late June. Instead, we were welcomed by Giovanni, who helped us bring our luggage up to the apartment, checked us in and provided a thorough orientation to the apartment and the building. He even helped us set up the mosquito chaser in case we wanted to keep the huge windows open at night, and explained Firenze's recycling system.
Our apartment included a small but functional and well-equipped kitchen (a nearby market stocks most anything you might need to make use of that equipment). WiFi worked well everywhere in the apartment, but mind that tricky small step up into the bathroom. Our daughter found the shower to be "awesome."
