Highly recommended to those wanna stay nearby train station ”

First of all, the premise is about 3 minutes away from the Firenze S.M station. It is very easy to locate the place, and nearby got mini market, restaurant and fast food like McDonald. It is very convenient as don’t need to carry luggage for long time as it is close the train station. The host is very nice, friendly and helpful. We are allowed to left our luggage before check in time so that we can travel freely without carry luggage around. The room is very comfortable, got heather, spacious, and with kitchen facilities. We did enjoy our two night stay. Highly recommend to those for 5 person stay, need kitchen facilities.

Modern Renovated Location”

Pros - close to train station and town centre, very quiet, very clean, modern, great service, good air conditioning Recommended restaurants were excellent. Cons - when you arrive, you buzz, and they let you in and come down to meet you. It's a bit unnerving just because there is not really a reception area on the street, and you don't know if you are in the right place, but this is normal in Europe. Bigger or any street sign above the door would probably help but not sure if it's allowed on an apartment/guesthouse style property. Otherwise, we were super happy once we got in. :)

thank you very much for your nice review. I just wanted to let you know that we are a guest house and not a hotel so it's normal not to have the reception on the street. It is not possible to put the sign on the entrance door because it is prohibited by law, but there is a very large sign immediately to the left of the entrance door. Back again to Apollo for your next vacation in Italy.

Central”

Across the road from the train station and around the corner from Florence Centre, perfect location. To attract the manager to get access, call the number on the door, the ones on the website don’t work. We waited 20 minutes not sure if we could get in! Breakfast isn’t included as stated, you receive a ticket to get a reduction on a Café down the road. Didn’t look to good, so we just went elsewhere. The room was clean (smelled like cheese, but you got used to that).

The bed is huge and comfortable and the bathroom is very spacious. Make sure you receive all the instructions for self-checking prior to arriving at Apollo Guest house (you need the various code to get because the building is secured). Fully recommended!

Great location”

It was our first time in Florence and we stayed for 5 nights. Location was great, just a short walking distance from the central station and there were lots of restos around, even a Mcdo branch and some grocery stores as well. Design was modern which we liked. The only issues we had was the water heater would fluctuate in the shower area. Plus the heater in the room would not turn on at night so it was rather cold in the room (mid April). Those issues could be addressed and attended to by the property owners, I'm sure. But overall, we had a great memorable stay!

Reviewed April 23, 2019

See room deals

Thank you for reviewing, the problems you had maybe there were some things unclear: the cold room in mid-April due to the law heating cannot be switched on in buildings like ours. However you had the split and you could choose to have also 36 degrees in the room ...; )! as for the warm water ... probably in a moment of loading (in which everyone was showering) it was enough to wait 2 minutes for the boiler to be recharged to compensate when everyone uses water ... I hope to have you back soon and thank you
