The Palace apartment is lovely and clean. The room we had was huge with very high painted ceilings and heated floorboards. And it's in an excellent location on the far side of the Ponte Vecchio from the Duomo but easy to walk to the crowded piazza in 10 mins. The only drawback was getting slapped with a 10 euro late...

The experience of Florence was amazing! The hotel experience can only be seen as a joke otherwise we should file a law suit for these people....the joke commences upon check in. A Chinese guy that speaks a language of his own is at the reception (sort of speaking). The room had been booked long ago via credit card so normally... More

Couldn't have been better. Very welcoming arrival - we emailed our flight details in advance & were able to have our apartment from 11am. Really helpful staff, totally flexible & accommodating. Apartment nicely furnished, comfortable bed & surprisingly comfortable sofa bed. No problems with kitchen, some reviewers have mentioned lack of dish soap, we had tea towel, bin liners, dish...

Had to book for one night. 2 adults with to children (8/15). We got apartment 4 and it was great. We had a balcony and a fully equipped kitchen. There where three separate aircondition intallments. Across the street we had some takeout pizza from Gusta. Probably the best - according to the crowd. The Pitti Palace was just a 2... More

Minutes walk to Pitti Palace, Pointe Vecchio, tons of restaurants and all major attractions in central Florence. At 21 Via Maggio, this location is within the zone where you cannot drive a car, so if you've got a rental plan ahead.

The location on Via Maggio is fantastic, just a few minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi but away from the worst of the crowds that destroy Florence in the summer. Whilst our room was beautiful, with a splendid painted ceiling and a large bed in the middle, it was poorly equipped for an apartment. There was no microwave, no... More

Location is great. However, this was our worst experience during the visit in Italy. The website said each room has a kitchen & washing machine - it had none. The room we got was on the ground floor beyond the receptionist - very strange. The room didn't have any warmth and didn't look like a place you would like to... More

The room was poor and wet. It was a sort of garage with a view open to anybody. The bathroom had no foam bath, or shampoo. There was only a hand soap dispenser. The room was just behind the reception and close to the elevator.

Palazzo Orlando Apartments are very central and close to the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio as well as within easy reach of the Pitti Palace and the Uffici Palace.

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
