    Brilliant location close to all the sites of Annunziata, and the Gallaria dell Accademia. Standard of accommodation was first class. Because it is an appartment hotel and because it is close to all Florences highlights there is ample opportunity to come back between visits for rest and refreshment. The wine, pasta and other food already in place on arrival is a lovely and welcome touch. Laura is helpful and informative.

    The double bed was a little too firm. The central courtyard would make a lovely outdoor communal sitting area, which is missing from the hotel, but presently gives the impression of being a storage area and is not pleasant to look out on.

    Nice spacious room clean and well furnished located centrally within walking distance of all the attractions. Wasn't sure about the breakfast arrangements at the cafe across the road when booking but the service and food were excellent and made you feel part of the community. Laura the host was very helpful and informative there was also fresh fruit and wine in your room on arrival which was a nice touch. Would stay there again.

    Excellent central location. Quality furnishings and fittings. Free access to the internet. Competent efficient reception. Laura most helpful

    Lack of double glazed windows made for a sleepless Friday night due to noise from night club patrons until 3 or 4 am. There was a lack of written instructions in English for use of Satellite TV, washing machine and dish washer.

    Superb location in the center of Florence. The manager was very kind and accommodating, particularly with holding my luggage. Included in the suite was a bottle of wine and several food items at no extra charge.

    The room was nicely decorated (really nice furniture and a huge dressing - for the ladies), provided all the facilities you may need during a holiday, and even some "gifts" like wine or fruits.The location is just great, 100 m away from the Dome square, on a nice small street. Laura was very helpful also. Free internet access in the reception and also free wireless internet in the rooms. It was a very pleasant stay, that I would definetly recommend to everyone. Looking forward to go back!

    Superb

    The location, which is close to all interesting spots- it is also very quiet and safe- and additional touches such as coffe, orange juice and other food items were helpful, especially for transatlantic travellers

    double beds- no telphone in case of an emergency- the very small shower- few if any healthy choices for breakfast, but thne this is Italy

    What a treat.. we referred to it as the Palace. Reserved for 4 people and what a shock when we found out it had 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms! It was a dream place to stay in very high tech. Amenities included complimentry toothbrushes, slippers.. wine, meat and cheese in the fridge. Location was excellent, short taxi ride from the train station. Down the road from the Basilica. Highly recommend.

    Only thing was the windows... I think they are single pane and we found the noise at night from the streets to be a bit loud....

    This hotel is the best hotel we've ever stayed at! It was just a few blocks from the Duomo. Breathtaking views every time we walked outside the hotel. Staff were WONDERFUL. The free bottle of wine, fresh fruit (a pineapple, bananas, kiwi, apples and oranges), ham and cheese in the frig, pasta and olive oil in the cabinets ... very welcome after a long day of touring. We asked them if they did wake up calls and they did not, but the woman at the desk offered to come in at 4:30 to wake us up (WOW ... but we did not take her up on it), they had a cab waiting downstairs at 5:00 a.m. to take one of our group to the airport and since it would be too early for breakfast, they had a breakfast packed for her in the room.

    Very hard to come up with anything negative about this hotel. Taxi dropped us off in front of the hotel and the building said First of Florence, but when we got inside, we didn't see anything to direct us up the stairs. There were big doors that were locked that we were trying to get into but it turned out we were trying to get into a bank. YIKES. Also, no hot water at the end of the day (around 10:00 p.m.). The next morning was much better though.

    First of Florence was easy to find. It is only 5 minutes walk from the Duomo, and not too far form smn train station. When we made the booking, it seemed a little expensive, but the price includes a nice stay in a well-equipped appartement (fridge, microwawe oven, washing machine, and some food). The owner, Laura was very helpful, she helped us to find the main attractions and a playground for the baby. The breakfast is in front of the hotel, at the ok Bar. You can also get a 10% discount for lunch or diner in the bar. But if you don't want to eat in restaurants, you can find a cheap shop close to the hotel, and cafe/tea making facilities are available inside the appartement. First of Florence was great, thank you!

    The WIFI internet does not work well as the walls of the building are too thick for the signal to pass through.

    Overall, this was a great place to stay and I would stay there again.

    Beautiful apartment! Very comfortable,fresh fruit,snacks,juice and water,and very clean! We loved everything about this hotel!

    Difficult to find! Better directions for driving would help! American type breakfast at the bar was not so good- stay with the brioche and caffe! Much better! But this is no reason not to stay here!

    A great location ...efficient welcome ;;;;a good standard of accomodation .....I like the feeling of staying in an appartment rather than a hotel ...would be a good base for a week of culture and countryside
