We were terribly disappointed with the Gemini Studio apartments. They were extremely difficult to find as they had another name plate above the studios ie City Studio or something similar to that and a very small plate saying Gemini studios that was barely visible. The owners office was untidy and full of alcohol. The studios were clean but had a musty smell. There were very few kitchen facilities available eg kettle, tea, coffee and the hot water ran out after one shower. We were there two nights and woken at approx 11pm both nights with screaming and shouting in one of the studios downstairs. Would not recommend this place to stay esp with kids. wifi was poor.
We stayed for two weeks in this location.The studio was very well equiped and clean.The owner, Mr. Pizzeti is trying to do its best: he recommended us the best shops around the location and every day was present in the location.The Gemini are not a hotel ( the prices are lowers at Gemini) and this is an opportunity to stay more time in Firenze.If you want to visit Firenze in one or two days, it is better to stay home, because you must stay minimum one week to visit the must see places in Firenze and the zone around:Fiesole (2,4 euro/ person by bus 7), Prato (5,2 euros/ person by train), Pisa (16.80 euros/person by train), Siena ( 18.20 euros/person), Lucca and San Giminiano.The train station is at 10 minutes walking. In the Train Station there is a supermarket opened 7/7. One problem is in the departure day, if you have a flight in the evening, you must deposit the luggage at the Train station (6 euros each troller for 5 hours). So we consider Gemini studios as an opportunity for those who want to explore seriously Firenze. We' ll return with pleasure to Gemini Studios.
Well equipped self catering studio. Warm welcome (earlier than we were booked in for). 10 minutes from the centre and main sights of Florence. If you're happy with basic living quarters without fuss then this is a good place.
I waited until 4 pm to get the keys. Two unfriendly attendants. Large room, but dirty. Central heater and only ran a few hours of the day. Wifi weak. Sofa bed uncomfortable. It has closet and small kitchen. Close to Santa Maria Novella train station.
Studio was great inside,neat and clean,Had a coffee machine and fridge .Close to Train Station about 5 min walk The couch bed was little uncomfortable. The WIFI was poor had difficulty getting a signal
Very dated , no A/C because it was early OCT. however it was unseasonably warm and we were on the ground floor so we could not open the window. location was not in a very nice part of town , not really close to tourist area , room did not feel clean. dishes need to be washed before use.
We let them know our arrival time and check in was smooth. We weren't expecting much from the room, after viewing the pictures and reading some reviews online, but when he opened our door, we were amazed at how large the space was. It appeared clean and had all the facilities we needed. The location was fantastic, although at night was noisey, but we enjoyed our whole stay, an amazing price for the location and size of room.
I got a good deal on this apartment and it was quite close to the Florence Railway station which was my key decision criteria. Overall apartment was good with decently comfortable beds, full equipped kitchen, hot water in bathroom, working wi-fi etc. Did not expect this to be a Hotel so was not disappointed by overall experience as others have been. Infact I was nicely surprised by the deal that I got on this one.
No-one to give us access to apartment when we arrived. Had to call an Italian number, then wait for the concierge to arrive to let us in (despite having provided specific details of expected time of arrival). Apartment and block in general were very old and dreary - old sofas lying around in corridors, grubby looking blankets on beds, outdated decor on walls and soft furnishings. Wifi didn't work. Quickly shown into room, accepted it and went out for the day. It was a ground floor room and so had numerous large windows all along one wall, overlooking a courtyard. These were all covered with full-length net curtains, which were kept closed for the duration of our stay for privacy. We came back to the apartment, went to sleep, and awoke to find that the room had filled with mosquitos. The window had been left open since before we had arrived - we are still both nursing numerous bites all over our arms and faces, but frankly feel lucky that no-one entered the unsecured room and helped themselves to our valuables. No staff presence on site to explain any of this to - there was one tiny office round the front that, as far as we could see, was unmanned for the duration of our stay.
