Florence in 5 Minutes-Brooklyn, New York
Posted 11-Nov-2016 on Hotels
My sister-in-law, husband and I travelled to Florence to visit my niece who was studying at Marist Italy.We had an amazing stay at the Blue Angel loft for 8 nights.The apartment was very clean and had updated appliances including a stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer, cookware and a wine cooler which was great for our extended stay in Florence.The apartment was large enough to comfortably accommodate 2 couples with a private bedroom and a queen sofabed that was very comfortable. It is also good for a family of 5, since there is a twin bed in a loft that is semi private.The main issues with the apartment was that Hotels.com does not send any information that the check-in office is at the Bruncelleschi Hotel that is located 5 blocks away. The Bruncelleschi provided cleaning service twice during our stay.There was also a lot of mosquitos b/c the windows do not have screens, so we had to keep the windows closed, which was a disappointment since open windows provide the sounds of Florence that add to the experience of living in an apartment. There was parking around the block which was cheaper than parking available thru hotel. I would definitely stay at the Blue Angel Loft on my next visit to Florence and recommended it for anyone who is looking for an alternative to a hotel.
