We stayed at the Al Duomo apartment for 16 days during December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We arrived in Rome after a very long flight and then travelled through to Florence by road (we had a driver) as the day we arrived there was a train strike. We rang Mariagioconda when we arrived to let her know of... More

Location.location.location. Florence is not a big city and you can walk everywhere from Al Duomo. Rooms are fine. Staff excellent and helpful. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast room. It is not in a windowless area, but on the top floor with a terrace. You can begin your day with coffee and a view of the Duomo... More

Let me begin by saying we are seasoned travelers, and I worked in the hotel and resort industry for over ten years. This hotel is a true gem! A few short blocks from the train station, and about two blocks from the Duomo! Walking distance to everything! The hotel staff was super professional,helpful and lovely! We had a beautiful room...

my husband and i stayed in Al Duomo for 3 nights during our trip to Florence. My brother had stayed the previous year and highly recommended the place. Guido and Maria were warm and easy to deal with via email and we even requested from them to reserve us museum tickets so we can avoid the long lines and they... More

We could not stay the first day since we arrived the city only after 10:00pm and the B&B did not work after 6pm. We wrote once by email that we would arrive very late night without knowing this would be so unflexible, but could not detail the exact time of arrival. Anyhow, we received the notification that they willl fully... More

I was surprised and saddened to see the negative reviews posted recently. I spent five nights here about a month ago with my two grown sons, and we had a truly wonderful experience. We were warmly greeted by Mariagioconda and her husband Guido. The room was spacious and had a beautiful view of the Duomo's bell tower. The bathroom was... More

The worst hotel I've ever stayed. Location however is great but owners took our money and then said that we still owed them for one night even though we paid everything when arrived. Didn't give receipt so we couldn't prove it. Even if you decide to stay there make sure to count money in front of them and take receipts!... More

We stayed in the al duomo apartment in May '14 for one week, it was fantastic and the view of the duomo from the terrace was incredible. Guido and Mariagicondo were exceptional host, providing us with maps and info of their favorite places, grocery store, gelato shop, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Florence...

At first, we were impressed by the friendliness of the owner, as she took the time to mark sights and restaurants on a map for us and show us the apartment, which was itself, very nice. However, we realized soon that our room was right beside the trolley tracks, which run until very late at night and start at 5... More

I feel the negative comments on this site have really taken away from the exceptional accommodations of Al Duomo. Perhaps these people were not use to traveling in Europe, or could just have been really bad luck and lack of communication. With this said Absolutely stunning apartment! I stayed for 2 weeks at the apartment Marzia which is just down... More
