    In one word – fantastico! The apartment is clean, has air conditioning and is centrally located. It is a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and all of the other wonderful attractions that Florence offers are just a short walk away. Laura and Julian were extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable hosts. A complementary large basket of fruit, bottle of wine, pasta, pasta sauce, juice, ham, jam, croissants etc. were provided on arrival alongside complementary toiletries such as toothbrushes and even cotton slippers! Everything you could possibly need has been considered and catered for. For anything else there is a ‘Conad’ supermarket just along the road. As a family of 5 it provided us with an exceptionally comfortable and relaxing base to explore the sights of Florence. The ‘OK Cafe/Bar’ was OK and provided a most welcome and convenient start to the morning. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who is considering visiting Florence. Thank you Julian, Laura and family for making our stay in Florence so enjoyable.

    The location was ideal, we had no use for taxi's other than to and from the airport and even this was a short drive. The staff were informative and efficient. The breakfast included was provided by a very friendly italian cafe. When we Return to Florence, we would certainly use First of Florence again.

    We were a family of 5 traveling through Italy and Florence was the last stop in a 2 1/2 adventure. We saved the best property for last. Beautiful, clean and spacious. The location was ideal also.

    The staff was a little cranky when we first arrived- we had a little trouble finding the place. They made a nice recovery though.

    Location is very central to all the attractions. Staff is excellent (and fluent in English). Fruit basket, complimentary bottle of vine...

    We booked the apartment for 4 people, but in fact it was a studio comprising of a single room. Bathroom is very small. When you book and apartment you expect to get one. I don't feel that the property was accurately/properly advertised on booking.com. Parking is 31 euros extra, making this a pricey accommodation (for one room which it actually is)

    Good location; just a few blocks from the Duomo. Large space with a living room, with a pull out couch, and a small kitchenette downstairs and a bedroom and bath upstairs. A good full american style breakfast is provided in a restaurant across the street from the hotel. Staff was helpful.

    Place could use a little freshening up. We did notice some mold on the downstairs ceiling; probably due to a previous shower leak.

    Great location near the duomo Nice to have in-room laundry! Breakfast across the street was more food than we could possibly eat, but very good. Fruit basket and bottle of wine was a nice touch.

    Very nicely decorated and comfortable, with a kitchenette and even a small washing machine. Everything was very well maintained and clean. When we arrived, there was a bowl of fruit on the counter and other goodies provided in the fridge, which was a welcome touch. Terrific location, great for being out and about in Florence. They even mail your postcards for free!

    Shower was very small. Woman at front desk was friendly but seemed quite busy.

    Fabulous location very convenient to many sights - literally in the Duomo's shadow. The best breakfast we had during our entire Italy trip. Wine, fruit and some other included items were nice. Very helpful staff.

    Street noise at all hours of the night was awful - very very loud. Garbage trucks, mopeds, you name it. Didn't sleep much. Exorbitant city room tax (had to be paid IN CASH) was not included in the stated room rate nor mentioned in the terms and conditions - shady. The tiniest of cramped bathrooms - couldn't even open the door all the way

    The room was wonderful and so much more than we expected -- clothes washer with soap; dishwasher; wicrowave; toaster; complete kitchen; welcoming huge bowl of fresh fruit and bottle of wine; clean and spacious; luxurious. Nothing negative to say at all. Just amazing.

    Only thing we didn't like was the eggs at the OK Bar that come free with breakfast. They were too salty. The sandwiches and pastries are superb, though.

    A perfect location and a beautiful building and a very large room for our family of 5. We were greeted with fresh fruit, tea, coffee in our room. The staff was very helpful finding restaurants, taxis and travel around Florence. The rooms were clean and we felt very safe around the area and in the building. I would highly recommend First of Florence and when I return, I will book my stay here again!!

    Nothing. Loved, loved, loved this residence.

    We liked it all! Laura was fantastic and so helpful! The young man at the desk in the evenings was well! Laura even went out of her way to show me how to use the washer dryer and went in while they were cleaning our apartment to switch the clothes to the dryer for me! The apartment was beautiful! They had a basket of goodies and wine waiting for us upon our arrival! the location couldnt be beat and we all loved breakfast across the street at the ok! we highly recommend!

    cant think of a thing!!

    This facility is top notch. Upon checking in, we were greeted by the very helpful, Laura, a bottle of complimentary wine and snacks. The bathroom was fully stocked and the room was spacious. We would definitely stay here on another trip to Florence.

    A lovely apartment in a fantastic old building, just next to the Duomo. The staff were great, plenty of complimentary coffee, fruit and a bottle of wine. Great Air con. Just a fantastic place to stay. The layout of the apartments with little mezzanine floors and the style of the fit out with shuttered windows and antique furniture and old books was a fantastic surprise, the photographs on the booking and review sites don't do it justice.

    The sofa bed was a little uncomfortable and there was street noise quite early in the morning from emptying bins on both days, but there's not a great deal the hotel could do about that.
