Reviewed 26 September 2012 via mobile

4 of us stayed in the loft, so 1 couple slept on the loft bed while the slept on the sofa bed in the living room. We shared 1 shower room. The kitchenette was basic and there was a note staying it has to be the same condition as it is, failing which we have a pay a cleaning fee. So we actually ensure all utensils were wash before we leave! :-)

The interior decor for the loft was very well- designed, especially the shower room. Although we knocked into some
protruding edges at the stairway and the dining table a few times, we enjoyed our 3D2N stay as it was quiet and safe to park our car. The wifi is also strong.

The only drawback is the distance to city centre was not as fast as we expected, as we had to wait for the bus which takes a while. We bgt the 'family's' ticket from the front counter so enjoy some savings.

The apartments are even better in real life than on the pictures. They are really nicely decorated. The location is far from the center. But there is a bus nearby and a family ticket for one day can be bougt in the villa for 6 euros. So no problem. Would i go again to florence would definitely come back. It looks so good!

Modern and new designer units that are very spacious with rain showers in the bath and a spiffy kitchen. Sparkling clean and ultra comfortable beds with pure white linens. You won't get this much space and aesthetic in another Florence accommodation at this price. They even had a Nespresso for each unit with coffee provided. They also provided complimentary fruits and tea biscuits in the chic common living room. Service was also superb. Like a 5 star hotel but even better!

The villa aruch was amazing, totally unexpected. Very clean, spacious, convenient, close to the city, quiet, Super modern with an elegant touch. The staff were super friendly. I never write reviews and i would highly recommend. When the pool arrives, it will be the perfect place to stay when visiting Florence.

An old building brought to life! Everything is still very new and it is very well maintained!

Rooms are lovely and we had a very spacious room. The decor is simple yet lovely.

It's about 25mins by bus from the centre of town, maybe a little too far out if you want to come back to your apartment before heading back out.

Well equipped kitchen.

It is very quiet, bring your own DVDs should you want to stay in. No satellite tv either, but that may be a good thing!!

Staff are polite, not around all day though so find out what you need before they leave, however you are able to phone them at any time. They aren't overly friendly, rather quiet in fact so they don't really have a presence, which doesn't work in the favour of such a boutique type residence.

Little touches are needed to make it truly amazing but I would recommend it!
