Christine's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
Better than average! We started off with a little construction noise upstairs and were dismayed, but the management was very good about postponing work for a month or so! It should not be a factor at this point (summer, 2012). The building is in a fairly quiet location. We miss hearing the church bells in the distance! Occasionally people can be heard as they walk home after imbibing too much but nothing compared to most rentals located in piazzas. It is generally very quiet. The apartment is on the top (fifth) floor. The view of the Uffizi museum and gallery is splendid!
Location location location! The view out the window of Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Arno River is terrific, although you do have to open the window and crane your head out a bit to see the bridge. Took lots of great pictures from the apartment. The WiFi was always reliable. Mauro the portiere in the lobby is always cheerful and Giuseppe, the handyman, was too.
The views are splendid and the location is greatly convenient to public transportation, the grocery store, restaurants and our favorite local hairdresser (Enzo and Luigi at Mauro near the Ponte Vecchio) and cappuccino place. A new smoothie place opened near our building. On Via Bardi just behind our apartment there is an elevator that takes you up one flight toward the Villa Bardini. You walk uphill through the garden the rest of the way and there's a little cafe there and great views.
Lynda's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
We loved it. We were there for a week and I came to think of it as home! Much better than our hotel in Rome, which was good, but hot and of course not spacious.
Spacious, great view, good air conditioning very important in Italy in July, good broadband Internet, comfortable living room and great conveniences in the kitchen. The property manager was at the property to meet us and was very helpful, leaving nothing unexplained.
The twin beds were a little small and bathrooms in foreign countries will always compare unfavorably to those in the US, but the bathrooms were still relatively good and the twin beds were not a big deal. I could just as easily have left this part blank.
Nice to be near but not in the tourist center of Florence. San Niccolo is a convenient and pleasant area.
Sujit's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
We were very happy with the apartment. It was clean, quiet, spacious, well lit, and extremely well located.
Our only complaint was water pressure, which was at times variable.
Sarah's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
Location! Location! Location! The property is so close to the Ponte Vecchio, the Pitti Palace, the Uffizi and central Florence. The property contact, Maria, and our doorman, Mauro, were very friendly and helpful.
The biggest challenge, as expected, was poor water pressure and wild variations of temperature with the showers.
There are good basic shops within easy walking distance of the property, making it easy to get supplies with a minimum of effort. A couple of the small electric bus routes are very close by, as is the stop for the sightseeing bus that tours Florence.
Patricia's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
Appreciated the nice bed linens, large bath towels, and quality dishes in the kitchen. Overall, a fantastic experience.
The view was totally awesome, the property was very comfortable, spacious, and immaculate. All the shops, restaurants, and fun things to do were well within an easy walk. This side of the river was nice because if offered a little more quiet than the north side, but, at the same time, was extremely close to all the sites. The doorman was also very friendly and accommodating. It was nice, too, to receive a nice bottle of wine upon our arrival. We would definitely stay in this property again.
There wasn't anything terribly bad about this property; occasionally the hot water would give out, but this was only temporary.
Everything! The museums, churches, restaurants and shops were all interesting, fun, and accessible.
George's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
This was our second stay in this apartment and the first time I saw it, it was beyond what I expected. I can recommend the apartment because any small inconvenience is outweighed by it's beauty and convenience. The view is truly spectacular.
The apartment had a terrific view of Florence. It is located close to grocery shops and restaurants. All of the museums are within walking distance or you could use the bus conveniently. It is furnished very nicely.
At times the water pressure was insufficient to take a shower. You had to choose the right time of day.
The surrounding area was pleasant to take walks along the Arno river and to explore the small streets and stores.
Ramsey's review of Palazzo Torrigiani - Orchestra
We were a group of 23, spread out over 4 units in this same building. We found the locations and amenities to be perfect for our large group. We were able to congregate and talk and also have large family dinners and breakfasts. The host in the lobby was very helpful and he was able to assist us in getting places and calling taxis and such. You will find the same comments attached to the other apartments that we had together as a family.
Spacious rooms which allowed us to congregate other family members over for food and conversation. In addition our children had space to play during the day and were less likely to be disturbed when sleeping.
Parking was a bit problematic. The street is monitored and only available for parking by residents. This required parking in a garage down the street near the Ponte Vecchio at a pretty steep rate. Florence is not known for its wide streets and ample parking, we lowered our expectations and were prepared for some difficulties regarding vehicles.
Views of the Arno and Florence were great. Access to the Autostrada and other connections to hill towns was eased because you are on the other side of the river. It was refreshing to be able to access all the sites, shopping and restaurants on foot and still have a quiet pleasant location next to the river to return to at night.
