The location was great - just south of the river so perhaps a little less busy and yet a short walk to everything. Service was great at check in as well as when I needed to order a cab (I didn't have a phone) - was able to send an email to the concierge who made arrangements for my pick-up. Internet connection was great so we were able to research our activities while we were there. The Piazza below was a 'happening spot' which was great during the day and the early evening but not so great in the middle of the night. Lots of stairs - great workout but maybe not for everyone.

“Cozy little apartment”
Left on 06/03/2015 for a stay in January 2015 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 3, 2015Stayed Jan 2015
The apartment was great for 3 people, but not big enough for more than that. It was very cozy but VERY loud with the piazza underneath. Also, the neighbor above us was very loud every night and would walk around in high heels and move furniture around at 4 am. The apartments florence staff was very helpful and everything else about the apartment was great. Great location.
“Nice Apartment in Excellent Location; AC is a challenge”

The 2-bedroom Piazza della Passera is charming and accommodated my husband, teenage son and I nicely. The location is absolutely perfect. We so enjoyed the Piazza just beneath our apartment each morning and evening. One note is the apartment is not entirely air-conditioned. The unit is in only one-bedroom. There are 2 fans which saved the day and we kept the shutters closed. We were there late June so it worked out, but would recommend a 2nd air conditioning unit to cool the entire apartment.
Grazie mille for your positive review on our Piazza della Passera apartment. We are pleased that you enjoyed this welcoming apartment located on the second floor of an historic Florentine building dating back to the year 600 and the charming and lively square Piazza della Passera. Perfect location to discover Florence, just steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Pitti, with quaint cafes and boutiques. We reported your suggestion regarding the air conditioning to the owner, comments and suggestions are importants for us in order to keep our properties up to our clients' expectations.

“Disappointed with Noise Level in Apartment”
Left on 06/13/2014 for a stay in May 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 13, 2014Stayed May 2014
We read the review on the apartments florence website that alluded to " tranquil bedrooms" and the location was away from the congestion of Ponte Vecchio.
The piazza outside the apartment was very noisy, with bands playing due to an election for 2 nights of our stay. The piazza had a restaurant that had a crowd in the piazza until after midnight every night of our stay and was very noisy...to the point of not being able to sleep.
Vehicle and Vespa noise started at 07:00 each morning, and the windows were old and very thin, and we were disturbed in both the evening and the early morning.
The air conditioning did not work without us draining water from it each day..and we were told after the fact all we had to was call, and someone would have come by to fix it...by the phone was disconnected!!
While the location is nice, the noise levels were very bothersome. We addressed this with the management and they blew it off as stating the piazza was " quite lively" and many clients enjoyed that!. I find it hard to believe that anyone would enjoy that sort of noise.
I asked for some sort of compensation, like a hotel would provide for the inconvenience, but was denied.
I would NEVER recommend this property to anyone I knew going to Florence.
If you pan on sleeping while inFlorence...look for someplace else!!
We thank you for detailed feedback on our Piazza della Passera apartment. The location is on a charming and lively square Piazza della Passera, just steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Pitti, with quaint cafes and boutiques, it is correct that being in the heart of the Florentine life brings it share of hustle and bustle of people out enjoying the summer evenings. We give full access to previous guests’ comments on our website so prior to booking our clients may know exactly what to expect and for that your feedback is very important to us. Regarding the telephone and air conditioning unit, we are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience your experienced however we have to say that it 's the first time that this issue was reported. After our inspection we have not encountered this problem. Hoping to have the pleasure to welcome you back in Florence, we remain at your disposal to find the most suitable accommodation for you.
