Very good location, right in the hearth of Firenze between Duomo and Palazzo Pitti. Double bathroom and 2 bedrooms with double beds. Very nice living room.
Extra charge for gas and electricity (high tariff)
The placement of this apartment is it's main attraction, as you're right in the middle of the old city. The Accademia with David in was the furthest of the tourist attractions we managed to see, which was a ten minute walk, and the train station was a 15 minute walk away.
We had two couples who were very comfortably accommodated, each with our own bathroom and the main living area separating our accommodations. After travelling through Italy and Austria and staying in hotels, it was wonderful to have a few days with some space, a couch to relax on while we did our laundry and the ability to cook our own meals.
We did have an issue with power on the first night, which also happened to be New Years Eve. The response to our concern (about about 11:30pm, no less!) was prompt and it solved the issue. We also experienced some issues with the heating, again resolved, this time by the couple staying in the next-door apartment. On the flip side, we had the best quality internet here of our whole Italian journey.
As an idea, the three nights ended up costing us around €70 in utilities, which was a little on the steep side, but as we cooked and did multiple loads of washing (and when the heat was on, including the towel racks, it was very toasty) we did not help ourselves on that front. You also need to empty your own garbage - again, if you're not cooking (and really, it's Florence, so there's a restaurant next to the front door and a bar down the street with pastries and espresso for breakfast) that's pretty easy.
I wish we'd been able to stay longer!
