Stayed in this hotel last weekend and loved the quirkiness of the bedroom. The hotel is in a fab location and we walked everywhere from here. The lady on reception when we checked in was called Angela and made us feel very welcome. In fact every time we passed reception the staff always said hello to us which I thought... More

They say you can never go back, but yes, you can. Returning here after spending our honeymoon at the Grand Cavour 20 years ago- the hotel in question was marvellous then and even more marvellous now. Recent upgrades-beautiful tiles, new well appointed large bathrooms with rain showers, comfortable and well thought out furnishings, lusciously crisp linens, soundproof doors, in room... More

Beautifully decorated room and bathroom, extremely comfortable. The rooftop terrace with views of the Duomo and the bar MAKES this hotel. Great free breakfast spread, teatime snacks in the afternoon for guests (fresh blood orange juice!!) Definitely has an old world feel due to the upholstered sitting area past the lobby and the old oil paintings. Centrally located, 2 blocks... More

Great location just a short walk into the centre of Florence. Our en-suite room was relatively spacious, very clean, with a comfy queen size bed (room 311). Staff were courteous and helpful, nothing to complain about, but breakfast service could be more attentive..... you literally serve yourself with everything, inc coffee etc, but the breakfast buffet selection is good.

Turn left out the front door: Piazza del Duomo. Turn right out the front door: Piazza della Signoria. Across the street: il Bargello. Rooms are small (as are they all), but how could you beat the location? Couldn't believe it! Worth every penny!

This was the perfect place to stay for my short visit to Florence. The hotel is walking distance from all the places I wanted to visit.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
