We were there 2/14/2014 to 2/17/2014. Gemini was not what we expected! We thought we were booking at a "vacation rental"...it was basically a small flat: everything was pretty much in one room except the bathroom had its own room. We needed a room for three people....We got a room with two separate twin beds and one bed had two other twin beds pushed together to give a full size look. There was mold on the wall at the head of the double twinbed in which we had to use a sponge and dish soap to remove. The beds were actually comfortable to sleep on. The sheets and blankets on the beds looked unclean; however the pillow cases and towels did appear to be clean. We had one face towel and one dry towel for each person for the three nights that we were there. The kitchen stove was dusty and not clean at all. The refrigerator was okay but looked as though mold was about to start forming in it. The internet service was low, but it did work. The cable t.v. only showed certain stations and channels and there were no english-speaking stations on it except MTV! The other guests or residents were noisy at night and when we tried to leave our windows open to cool the room, someone was smoking a cigarette right outside our window....There is an ironing board and iron and plenty of closet space if you need it. Good luck with parking - we had to wait a long while until someone moved in order for us to park our car nearby. I think the best thing we liked about the Gemini is that we were within a good walking distance to the Duomo/Bell Tower and shopping/restaurant areas...If you are American, I recommend eating at Astor Cafe - they have a wonderful breakfast and there coffees and coffee specialty drinks are good too!

The room was ok. The internet connection was NOT working, despite it was claimed in the advertisement. The airconditioner was very noisy, and very old-fashioned. The room was infested by mosquitos. An in-depth treatment would be helpful for future guests. The overall rate (150 Eur charged at the beginning+ 30 Eur cleaning fees) was quite expensive. However, the room was very comfortable, provided with a kitchen, which is good if you are going to prepare your own food. If you look carefully, you may find a better place for the same price.

Friendly staff and nice rooms, however with windows just on the train station with a lot of noise in the morning. Location is great if you coming to Florence by train of bus. 20min walk to get to the city center. Fair price/quality.

The apartment was spacious, well appointed and equipped. It was on a busy street but traffic noise did not bother us unduly. It is a short walk from the main train station Florence, Santa Maria Novella and an easy walk to major sights and the commercial centre of the city.

cramped with a single bed in addition to the double - ripped blinds -unable to adjust them, very cramped bathroom diswasher installed but out of order distance from city centre further than details originally indicated so a fair walk for restaurants in the evenings - hotel accommodation in the city centre was cheaper and would have been better

This apartment isn't fancy and it's not right on the main square- but it is cheap and it's clean and it's close to everything, including parking. I'd stay here again- though it's not tremendously charming.

First continental holiday for some years, selecting accomodation can be like sticking a pin in a page no matter what the web site says or shows. We struck lucky, visit in september so the weather was perfect 22 degrees sunny. The studio was clean,(the towels were changed every day,bins were emptied etc: and the bed made, which we did not expect) central, to all locations, directions from station correct. Staff were friendly and helpfull. the studio did what it said on the tin. clean reasonably priced, budget accomodation. the problems? no natural ventilation whilst out so faint smell, though not offensive (which dissapeared when the door or window was open for a short time), small shower cubicle so the usual problem of curtains sticking to you. hardly worth mentioning. we would very happily book again. Very suitable for us two middle aged couple seeking central, simple, quiet base to explore florence.

The hotel is OK, except for the shower, which is unconfortable and the whole badroom gets completely wet, besides the fact of being extremely dangerous because of the water. The carpet in the bedroom was dirty, so the first impresion you get is not very good.

Apartment Gemini City Centre Studios ADDRESS: Viale Fratelli Rosselli 55 CITY: Firenze We were disappointed with the quality of this apartment - worn, musky, and foul smelling. Two members could not sleep in the room due to allergies and the next day we asked to be moved. We were offered a suite in a separate building about a mile away -for the remainder of our stay for another 100 EURO..but the difference was worth it as the new apartment was far superior compared to the one we had originally booked. The only positive comment about Gemini City Centre Studio Apartments was the staff. They dealt with our concerns with respect and immediately assisted us in moving to another building and in a nicer [safer] location for a family of 4.

This apartment was exactly what we wanted - centrally located for the convention centre and an easy walk to old Firenze as well as clean and with the facilities advertised. We would have liked an extra set of keys so we could enter and exit independently but apart from this it was perfect. We had a great time!

First time I decide to sleep in accommodation that was not as usual classic hotel room, well i should say that it was very good choice and good deal, the room/studio was very clean, spacious and with everything you need to self catering. I suggest this studios for families that want to save money from a very expensive restaurants in florence, and some times not either good quality. Couldnt be better.
