On our trip to Italy in April/May we visited many places including my family village but nothing left an indelible mark on us like Firenze. We first visited for two days when we left Rome and instantly fell in love. When we were readying to return from Venice to the Garfagnana we ditched palns to go down South to return to Firenze.

I came across Signoria Apartments on Bookings.com and was so glad we made the spur of the moment decision.

We could not have found a more central, friendly and clean place to stay not just in Firenze but anywhere in the world. The major sigts are at most a 5 min stroll from your doorstep.

The staff were welcoming and extremely helpful. We were pretty laden with baggage and the gentleman carried all our bags up to our first floor apartment via the ever present Florentine stairs.

Our apartment had 2 good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds and double glazing (rare in Italian city centres). Its equipped with a good kitchen including microwave and front loading washer.

The bathroom is extremely modern and clean and has a nice roomy shower as opposed to most Italian showers which are not made for larger people.

The staff are attentive and will assist in anyway they can and made our stay very enjoyable.

I look forward to returning for Christmas 2013 and I already know where I will be spending my week in Firenze.

Room Tip: The first floor is best if you dont like stairs.

This hotel was our favourite hotel in Europe! The apartment made us gasp when we walked in. The location is perfect - in the middle of everything you want to see in Florence! The staff at this hotel were so warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. I cant describe how wonderful our stay was! The fit out of the apartment was very trendy, extremely spacious and modern with a great bathroom too. The entrance was a big wooden door only on the street and it was incredible that this amazing set of apartments was there right in the middle of Florence. We have raved about this place to friends and the great staff that make the experience so special! Thankyou Signoria Apartments - well be back! Dont hesitate to book - you wont be disappointed!

Room Tip: Our room was at the top with an amazing terrace and beautiful views of Florence! Im sure all rooms a...

The hotel staff and location were great! The hotel staff was very helpful! They did not hesitate to help with solutions to questions and were very flexible. Great knowledge of the city and willing to give suggestions based on how long we were staying. Very accommodating as well! Great family environment and the apartment was very comfortable!

The apartment is in a fantastic location! It is in the heart of the historical center. You can walk anywhere in the city from there. The apartment has a fridge, stove, microwave and dining table. You can cook meals if you like. There is no breakfast offered so it was good to have the fridge for snacks. There is a pull out full size sofa in the living room and a queen bed in the bedroom. The bathroom is quite large by Italian standards. We were extremely happy with the apartment! The staff is quite pleasant and helpful in booking tours or giving guidance. They are not there all night, but it wasn't a problem for us. I booked the Sienna, Pisa tour and it was wonderful! Recommend that to all. I also went outside the train station and booked the hop on, hop off bus. Also a good choice. I would recommend a taxi from the train station. It is a little far to drag luggage and would be hard to find your first time. Other than that, I walked everywhere. Great location!!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor which was still up a flight of stairs. Pack light! Cannot stress this eno...

This lovely apartment is located just around the corner from the Uffizi Gallery and a 5 minute walk from the Duomo! The apartment was beautifully clean and the beds very comfortable. There was a lovely view from the apartment and the windows were double glazed to keep ou any noise. There was also an airconditoner in all the rooms. The kitchen was great and there was also a washing machine which was a welcome sight for weary travellers running short on clean clothes! There are lots of restaurants nearby as well as great shopping and markets. There is a well stocked supermarket a few minutes walk away. The only downside is there is a flight of stairs before the lift (lift goes from the first floor). Staff were very helpful . Our apartment was not ready at midday when we arrived, however we were able to leave our luggage in the office. When we returned 2 hours later Lucas had taken all our luggage to the apartment which was much appreciated. This apartment was exceptional value for money! One day we hope to return.

The location of this property is excellent. So centrally located to everything you want to be near in Florence. The staff were very helpful and friendly and were able to suggest great places to eat and see. Room was comfortable and well appointed. Having a washing machine was handy at this stage of our trip. Quite a few stairs to climb, however this is common in Europe. This was not a problem as the boys carried our luggage to and from the room. Great value for money in the heart of Florence. Would go back.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have been renovated. The website gives you pictures and a clear explanation of...
