There’s not a hint of the Renaissance here: These luxurious mini-apartments are all bright-white decor and designer soft furnishings, with stripped-wood flooring and modern gadgetry to keep everything working. Each is spacious, cool in summer, and totally cocooned from Florence’s permanent background noise. Each apartment also has a mini-kitchen, kitted out just fine for preparing a simple meal—ideal if you have kids in tow, especially if you make use of the grocery delivery service. Unusually for apartments, they are bookable by the single night and upward. Staff is some of the friendliest in the city.
