    Fabulous

    2 minutes from the airport, free parking, nice spacious apt. Wifi very slow (needed it for work) but was free. Clean, well priced, new, sat. tv, well equipped apartment. Location is not the best if your looking for views, but adequate for a city trip or early morning flight. Would return.

    Style of apartment

    20 euro charge if kitchenette not left spotless. No cleaning materials. Could buy for 5 euros but they had no cleaning kits left as last one sold the week before. Had to walk into the high rise estates at night to find a supermarket to by cleaning materials. Appalled. Hotel next to lorry depot No English speaking TV channels

    The villa by itself is very attractive and compact, everything you needed are within your reach and available. The beds and the whole loft is very comfortable. We had a good stay at Villa Aruch and the nights are so comforting after a whole day of travelling within the citiies of Florence. We even had the chance to wash our used-up clothes since washing machine is available. Very accessible and not far from the train station, transportation lines are also available, but one need to be well informed as to the rates so as not to get into a difficult arrangement with taxis, car hires, etc.

    It could have been better if the package was on Bed and Breakfast since it was a bit of a hassle for me to do some shopping, cooking and preparing for five people as we are on a holiday trip. Otherwise, everything is okay.

    Good sized comfortable room, well equipped kitchenette. The young girl at reception was extremely helpful and is a definite asset to the establishment.

    Like a 5 star hotel but even better! Modern and new designer units that are very spacious with rain showers in the bath and a spiffy kitchen. Sparkling clean and ultra comfortable beds with pure white linens (my pet peeve and I was very satisfied). You won't get this much space and aesthetic in another Florence accommodation at this price. They even had a Nespresso for each unit with coffee provided. They also provided complimentary fruits and tea biscuits in the chic common living room. Service was also superb. The reception Francesco and the beautiful lady helped us in every way they can from printing out directions to various destinations. Waiting for us even when our check in was midnight and even when we locked ourselves out of our apartment. Towels were changed regularly just like in a hotel even if this is an apartment. They helped provide bus tickets and even refunded unused ones. I cannot say enough how ecstatic I was to be able to discover this place through Booked.net and how it was the best accommodation in our whole European trip ever and I've went through a lot even 5 star hotels and high end apartments. I would definitely recommend and come back to Villa Aruch.

    Nothing to dislike. Just some tips. The bus is really frequent and stops across the street - almost every 5 mins or less (max 10mins wait) and once you hop on you're in Santa Maria Novella station in 15 mins ( I really timed this). Oh you may want to ask how to work the phones in the rooms because the printed instructions are different. This is just a tip and not a dislike at all.

    Fabulous

    The hotel staff is really friendly. The girl at the concierge was very helpful! But the best part of the hotel was really the room itself. It was HUGE. The kitchen facility was sufficient for us to cook a decent dinner ( there is a big supermarket nearby to get food).

    It is quite far away from city centre. There is nothing much around the hotel. The hotel room was very clean overall however, as we are on the ground floor. There was an issue of ants on the floor. For the 3 days, there were ants walking around the sofa area. :|

    Amazingly designed room, very beautiful. Room was very spacious and had a very nice and big shower, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed. The room was completely sound proof. Free parking. The owner was very kind and helpful ! To sum things up I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling by car.

    Location was not so good, but if you are traveling by car it's not such a big deal.
