“Huge apartment in a fantastic location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

A great location right in the thick of things. One street back from the ufizzi and the palazzo. We had the orange apartment. Travelling with our 2 older children who are 13 and 15. Surrounded by 100 gelati places, the kids were happy. Our apartment was ready on our arrival. Quite a few steps up to the elevator to put our luggage in the lift but these places weren't originally designed to have lifts so you can understand it. Our apartment was huge and the kitchen was well decked out so I was able to cook a couple of nights and manage very well. After a few weeks of eating out, our boys were happy to have a couple of nights eating in so they could relax and catch up on their Internet interests. The wifi didn't miss a beat which was a relief. When travelling with teenage kids, its nice that the wifi is reliable. It seems to be one of the major factors that influences how they rate an establishment!! They had on site management during the day and the management were most helpful offering advice on things to do and always happy to help out. Fabio was fantastic. We had a great time in Florence and the apartment was fantastic. I'd have no issue recommending signoria apartments to others or staying with them again in the future!!

Hi Mariejohn, thank you for your great review!
Our orange apartment is really suggest for kids: they want to be in the center of everything and they have the possibility to "touch the street" being inside, so you had the possibility to relax some hours without make them nerve. To serf on internet is also very important for them and all our apartments have free WiFi, but we think that the major factor that influenced your ones were ice creams!
The historical center it' s full of places were you can eat good specialties of Italian cuisine and we' re really interested to know what you think about (we always ask to our guests what' s in their opinion the best place where they tasted an ice cream, where thy had a good dinner ...), so we are updated every day and we' re able to recommend wonderful places.
Hope to see you in the future too!

The best thing about this place is its location. The one bedroom we stayed in is about half way between ufizi and duomo so it's right in town. Walking distance to everywhere including leather markets and ponte vechio. Stairs were a bit annoying but probably a good thing given the plethora of delicious gelato stores on that street. Only a 10 euro cab ride from the train station (well it was when we were there). Room was clean and the service was really friendly and helpful. They give you a map and show you where you are compared to other attractions which really helps. If I ever go back to Florence I would go back here in a heartbeat!

We booked a one bedroom apartment -it couldn't be better. Location wise it is perfect for the Ufizzi, Ponte Vecchio, the markets, Duomo, the Bobilo Gardens, we walk everywhere and come home for lunch each day, rest and then go out again. Apartment wise, yes it is up stairs, but the delightful staff carried our luggage and welcomed us, far warmer welcome then Rome where we also had an apartment. Beds comfy, plenty of room, ambience, great kitchen, great laundry, great bathroom, its so stylish, the supermarket round the corner for any supplies you may need. Restaturants, gelato shops and cafes abound, Florence is beautiful and so polite, we have loved everymminute of it and would highly recommend this beautiful apartment.

It just can't get better. We booked into the apartments next to the Signoria Piazza but were told that we are booked into their brand new apartment. Slightly apprehensive, we checked in and could not believe our luck. This place was even closer to the Piazza than the original one and a swanky new apartment in an old building with carefully blended decor - retaining historic charm and adding modern day glamor in the interiors. Highly recommended for stay in Florence.

Some tips: Buy daily stuff only in the super market and not in the tourist trap shops that line the main streets.

Our two bedroom apartment was just perfect for the week. There were four of us sharing the space, and it was more than enough room. Clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, very helpful staff and right in the center of the action, we would certainly stay there again. I guess the only drawback is the noise, but it is a stone's throw from Piazza Signoria (you can't have your cake and eat it too!). As long as you don't mind some stairs (our apartment was three floors up), look no further for a marvelous accommodation in Firenze.

Signoria apartments has many units scattered all over Firenze . The unit on calamaruzza street,is good enough for6 people It is in the center of piazza signora and a few steps a way from uffizi museum . This location couldn't be better. It is walking distance to most tourist attractions. The unit itself is brand new . It has complete facilities for a apartment type rental.1 bedroom, kitchen, living room with sofa bed, washing machine with dryer, refrigerator, TV and a loft with a queen size bed. The kitchen is complete enough to cook basic meals. Dinner plates and utensils also provided.

The apartment unit is well designed except for the loft with a queen size bed. The ceiling is less than. 6 feet high in my estimate. I guess they did their best to maximize the space available.The Signora Apartment Staff of Lucas, luigi, Simon , and Danilo did an exceptional job of meeting us. The GPS on our rental car malfunctioned and we got lost in the outer perimeter of Firenze. It's was Lucas who assisted us in getting to the hotel with our heavy luggage and 3 teenage children.

Another issue is the 5 flights of steep stairs one must climb to reach the apartment . If you are in good physical condition and without heavy luggage then then I would recommend this unit. I realize that they were still renovating the place so the stairway was also very dark. There were no lights in the stairway at all. I hope they fix this soon. You should ask for an apartment unit on lower floors and with less flights of stairs. I loved the modern design of the unit and everything about it except for the 5 flights of stairs.

Room Tip: Try and get a unit on a lower floor and with less stairs to climb .

Dear guest, thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure for us to have had you in our apartments. We are sorry although for the stairs; it is a historic building and unfortunately the structure is in this way, also the darkness you may had. We put extra lamps to bright it even more. Best wishes, Executive Office

This was our favorite place on our trip to Europe. The location is right around the corner from the Uffizi Gallery and 5 minutes from the river. We loved to walk around at night to the shops and see the sights at night. The apartment was very clean and we had plenty of room for the five of us. The staff was so friendly and helpful!!! We arrived late and they were very accommodating. Definitely recommend these apartments and will be staying there when we come back.
