great value with minor downsides

Pros: - Great value - Close to train station - Not far from sights Opportunities for improvement: - Very firm mattress (seemed newer and even possibly memory foam, but was very firm) - Water pressure in shower started great but then went down to a very low pressure (could barely wash off soap!) after about 5 min - Very thin walls (it’s a great old building that has been completely remodeled! But that comes with thin walls) and you could hear others in the hotel too much. - Lots of “extras” that you have to pay for that are normally included in a rate but aren’t necessities (I.e. if you want your towels exchanged after fewer than 3 days you must pay 3 Euro). - There isn’t a concierge at all times. We called when we got there and they were very quick to meet us but I could see how this could be a challenge for others if you don’t have a calling or texting plan. Overall, it suited our needs. For the price, the location and cleanliness was perfect but there were some downsides that reminded us that “you get what you pay for” and it’s how they are able to provide a great nightly rate.

A hidden gem in Florence

Amazing place to stay in Florence. The unit is so roomy, clean, and very welcoming that it feels like home. Really impressed that our room was ready and Alexa checked us in once we arrived in Florence even if it's not 2:30 pm. Alexa was really helpful in getting us checked in. This place is situated close to the Firenze station epecially if you're planning to take some day trips to other italian citites. It is also close to Mercato Centrale Firenze, the Duomo, and to all of Florence attractions. Will definitely booked again at Apollo.
