The hotel is tucked away in a small alley near Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens (5 minutes by foot). In fact Florence is not a big city, during my stay I walked from the hotel to all the attractions and only had to catch a bus when carrying my luggage from/to the train station. The room was clean, comfortable and...

We stayed there for 3 nights. First, the manager was very pleasant, showed all good restaurants and sights. The location is great. The only bad thing was that the fridge is actually a freezer so our food was iced.

I stayed at the Althea Rooms three nights. The price was reasonable, and the room clean and well maintained. I had accidentally booked only two nights, but the staff was very gracious when I stayed the third. On check-in, I was provided with a map of Florence, and Antonio found the address where my friends were staying and marked that,...

I loved my 7 night stay at Althea Rooms in Florence. It was very clean. In a perfect part of town just a short walk from everything yet, on a quiet street. The staff was extremely friendly. It was a cute apartment type of room. The bed was comfortable with a desk and computer. It had a home feel to...

The host at these apartments could not have been more helpful. The location just off Piazza San Spirito is ideal for access to everything south of the river. We were provided with excellent recommendations for tradional restaurants. We were particularly impressed with Tamero I'm the Pizza San Spirito. We all loved this venue.

These apartments are in a perfect location. Just out of the main tourist areas but still within two minutes of restaurants the palace and 6 or so minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio. There is secure parking about 5 minutes away to which you will be directed on arrival. The proprietors are fabulous and the rooms comfortable and full of...

I stayed at Althea rooms for 3 nights during my stay at Florence with 2 of my friends. The owner was very helpful and gave us helpful advice on directions and restaurants.

My fiancée and I discovered Althea rooms from a review here on T.A. So glad we decided to stay here - the owner was so helpful, giving us helpful tips and restaurants in the area upon our arrival. It's in a great neighbourhood away from most of the touristy stuff on a quiet side-street. It was only a 10 minute...
