This is a truly amazing place to stay. Stayed in a deluxe apartment for 3 nights beginning 1/1/12.
I guess the first place to start is the location. Next to the Duomo is perfect for sightseeing and using as a base for exploring Florence. However, it was surprisingly quiet in the room so you aren't as disturbed by tourists outside as you might expect, although I was on the top (4th or 5th) floor. Obviously, attractions and restaurants are all easily accessible from here.
The apartment itself was huge, with a perfectly sized bathroom. Decor is nice without being flashy or tacky. For breakfast you are left fresh croissants and rolls each morning to go with the previously provided jams and honey, as well as fruit, coffee and tea. The bed is very comfortable and is a real double bed, not 2 singles wedged together like you find in many other Italian hotels.
I didn't really need any help from the management in terms of tips or directions etc but they were very pleasant and seemed helpful so I believe the other reviewers praising their service.
Maybe the most impressive part of all this was the price - only €190 per night. It's incredible value for money and if you're going to splash out a little on accomodation on your trip, then this is certainly a worthwhile place for that. To be honest, when I was quoted the price (this is for the deluxe apartment remember) I thought they had made a mistake and the 3 night total rate was meant to be a nightly rate!
This is a truly fantastic place to stay. You can find great rooms, staff, breakfasts or value in any Italian city. But to find them all in the same venue is highly unusual. Then you add in the location and it's simply astonishing. If you are visiting Florence then you will surely not find anywhere better to stay than this.
