“Gorgeous apartment!”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This apartment is a gorgeous mix of historic and chic! There was plenty of room for our family of 5. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable! We stayed in Florence when the temperatures were in the 90s so it was hot! There were AC units in all the bedrooms but there wasn't one in the living room. It was too hot in the living room to enjoy the space and the mosquitos in Florence made it impossible to open any windows. The dining area did have AC though so we gathered there in the afternoon to enjoy each other's company. There is no elevator in the building so be prepared to walk up stairs-the apartment is on the top floor. Totally worth it walk though as the terrace is beautiful!

“Beautiful apartment but it has its drawbacks for a longer stay”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in this apartment for a whole month. On the plus side it has a huge reception room, two very decent sized bedrooms, a good kitchen, a pleasant dining room and an outdoor space. It is in a great location, nicely decorated and relatively quiet. It was clean, too. There are a few issues which aren't clear from the pictures on the website, though. To begin with there are no doors between the bathroom/loo and the bedroom so no privacy there. The third bedroom is tiny and only suitable for a small child and in summer as the bed is on a platform near the ceiling it is far too hot. The terrace is very run down and the plants when we were there were pretty much all dead. The wifi, which we were promised, wasn't on for the whole month although the agency - after a week - put in a pay as you go type system so we could do email. (Wifi in Italy is often a bit dodgy but still the owners were remiss because they had clearly switched their own system off to save money... there's a massive internet tv in the sitting room with 3d glasses etc.). On a one month rental we were expected to pay for the water, gas and electricity. The owner left a note asking us to water her plants but as they were a) mostly dead and b) we had to pay for the water I only did a bit. The air conditioning was a nuisance because when you are paying at a marked-up rate it clocks up. We spent around €75 a week on it and frankly did not have it much. Perhaps three hours a day. It only covers some rooms. Yet, for all the above we enjoyed staying in the apartment and would recommend it. Also, we found the agency good to deal with and would recommend them. However, it is a week after we left and the deposit has not yet been returned. Still, I will chase them today and I am sure they will do it.

Dear Jonathan, Thank you for your review on the amazing Palazzo Medici. This elegant and spacious apartment is located right in the center of Florence, in the heart of the Lovely Oltrarno. Thank you for your thoughtful feedback, we’ll surely share it with the owner. We appreciate it as it helps us maintain the high standard that we have set for our company.
I am sorry the wifi didn’t work as expected, the apartment is located in an historical building with thick walls and unfortunately this effects wifi reception. The wifi service you have found in the apartment is the same the owner uses all year round, the owner is simply used to it.
Utilities, as stated in the website and the contract, are always separate for stays over 7 nights. We completely understand this affect your and other customer’s willingness to water the plants… That is why you found them already dead!
Thank you for your kind words about our agency, we take proud on being always available for our customers.
Please contact us for your next stay in Florence! Apartments Florence Staff

“"Palazzo Medici"”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I rented this particular apartment because of its beautiful roof terrace - and it didn't disappoint.

This is a huge apartment with all that we needed. Great kitchen, beautiful lounge area, 3 bedrooms plus 3 bathrooms. The stand out feature definitely being the stunning out door terrace - which we made good use off.

Check in was good and the guy who showed us around the apartment was extremely friendly and patient, although non of the beds where made on our arrival this was rectified later in the day. My only complaint was that several of the beds had nothing but a top sheet (it was quite cool a couple of the evenings we where there) and although I called the check - in number to advise about this matter nothing was done during our stay. Luckily is wasn't that chilly that we couldn't find bits & bobs around the apartment to throw over the beds at night. I understand our stay coincided with Mens Fashion Week and Florence was busy,busy,busy but it was something of an oversight given the price bracket.

Apart from that little hiccup we found the apartment perfect for our stay and would certainly stay there again.
