Palazzo Belfiore
We have just returned from a 6 night stay at the Palazzo Belfiore Residence Apartments in Florence, where we had the privilege of staying in the Leone X Apartment. I have traveled to 13 different countries and have never felt more welcome or at home than I did at the Palazzo Belfiore. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by Federico, the apartment manager. He promptly escorted us to our new "home away from home" for the week. He gave us a tour of our new home and filled us in on the history of the building. Federico then sat down with us, along with a map of Florence and showed us some points of interest throughout the city. Upon our arrival in Florence, we were missing all of our luggage. Federico asked for the information regarding missing luggage and promptly made a copy so that he could follow-up on it's whereabouts. The Leone X apartment, was nothing short of spectacular. With so much old world detail and charm, I was transported back to my childhood with fond memories of my grandparents home. We enjoyed the apartment so much (which by the way was very spacious) that we went to the local market for wine and appetizers and just went back to the apartment for an "appetizer dinner". From the birthday wishes upon arrival (we arrived on my birthday) to the welcome card and bottle of wine in the apartment and the graciousness and hospitality of our host, Federico, We can't get back soon enough.

The Palazzo Belfiore is just like home
We loved our stay at the Palazzo Belfiore. We ended up walking to the B&B from the train station and it was only about 20 min. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Federico who walked us over to our room, about 2 min away. He showed us some very good places to eat and told us some history surrounding the area that made the walk enjoyable. Service overall was 10 out of 10. They even went the extra mile of bringing a package to our room that arrived while we were out touring the city. A small gesture but worth noting. The room was better than advertised. The main lower area was dining room, kitchen and living area, while the bedroom and bathroom were upstairs in the loft. The only downside to this was we had a toddler who was obsessed with the stairs so we had to block them off (but this is not the Belfiore's fault). It was very clean well maintained. Bathrooms worked well. There is an AC unit inside that you can turn on/off at your convenience, however we were there in April and never had to turn it on. In fact it got a little too cold at night and we had to keep the windows closed. The location is perfect, nestled right behind the Ponche Vercchio Bridge (1-2 min walk). Only downfall to the room was it was on ground level and we randomly heard cars and pedestrians passing by. This did not hinder our personal time or sleep though. Also they were very accommodating with holding our baggage if we needed more time to visit the city after checkout.

Near Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti
The Manager, Federico, is wonderfully attentive, helpful and hands-on. Federico and his staff are extremely accommodating and you can tell, they love what they do. My compliments to Federico for providing a wonderful experience to my family during our visit to Florence. We had multiple stays over the course of a week in two different rooms. We preferred Leone X room to Clarice because the former's bathroom facilities where updated with a nice stand-up showers. I also liked the design aspects of Leone X. Tastefully designed bedrooms with lots of light from the generous windows. Two disadvantages for Leone X was the fact its at the top floor so you're going to have carry your luggage several flights of stairs. Second, is more conventional pillows with pillow sheets not the satiny, decorative pillows. Still my family preferred the Leone X even if Clarice was a bigger room. The drawback of Clarice is due to bathroom being dated so taking a shower was a real chore in the master bathroom. The master bedroom door could not be shut flushed nor was the lock working. The beds were comfortable. Despite these minor issues, I would definitely return to Palazzo Belfiore primarily because of the personalized service and warmth exuded by Federico and his staff. Bravo Federico!

Beautiful historical home in the heart of Florence
If you want to stay in an excellent location for a great value and literally immerse yourself into a piece of history, stay here! We stayed in the Clarice apartment, which was the original bedroom of the original family home, built in the 1390's. The walls still display part of the original fresco. Bedroom, living room and second bedroom were all clean and comfortable. Location is perfect, walking distance to all of the big attractions in Florence, and some great restaurants and night spots within a few blocks. You really feel like you are living as a local, not just visiting! The host, Frederico, made us feel very welcome. He was extremely knowledgeable and genuinely wanted us to have a wonderful experience in Florence. He was a great help making reservations and providing us with any other assistance that we needed. Apartment is well appointed , like a normal hotel. If you are accustomed to large modern hotels, you should know the bathrooms in the Clarice apartment are quite small. A small price to pay for wonderful Florence experience you get by staying here. When we return to Florence, it will be an easy decision to stay at the Palazzo Belfiore once again!

We absolutely loved it!
Oh My Goodness! What can I say about our stay at Palazzo Belfiore! we loved it so much. My family of 5 could not have had a better time in Florence and we feel so lucky to have found this place to stay. Frederico was amazing and the accommodations were so so so great. I can't even describe how happy we were. The location is simply put - the best. It is west of the Arno, near Ponte Vecchio, but on the "locals" side of town. and the italians in the area are so kind. We felt like part of the Santo Spirito neighborhood. When we go back, we know where we will stay. They take so much care and pride in having a beautiful, clean, comfortable, and amazing place. Cant recommend Frederico and Palazzo Belfiore enough. We stayed in the Leone X apartment and loved it - I am sure the other rooms are just as beautiful and have their own personality like ours did. My kids (18, 22, and 24) did not want to leave! Thanks Frederico!
