We booked this hotel at the last minute as we did not like the reviews and look of the original we were going to- so glad we chose room mate Luca. The staff are so lovely, they were friendly and helpful, their English is excellent and they were so accommodating and helpful, providing milk for an English cup of tea... More

When we arrived at the hotel we upgraded to a suit on the top floor and it was one of the best rooms we have stayed in during our trip. It was beautifully decorated and our views were off opening double windows over the streets of Florence. Staff were so helpful and friendly. And breakfast was simple and tasty. I... More

First off, the location is perfect. However, any hotel you get in the Duomo area or even right outside the Duomo area is pretty perfect since this city is very small and very walkable. But either way, this hotel is a great location. Right next to Gucci and very close to the famous bridge, Duomo, and train station. Secondly, the... More

This small hotel in the shopping district (it's above Gucci) is a fantastic small, mid-priced option. Near all the attractions, friendly, clean and all-round wonderful. The lift only operates from the first floor reception, but the staircase from the street is wide and easy to navigate with bags.

The location is incredible. You can easily walk to the major sites and for those who like high-end shopping, this is the place to be. I had a single room, which was compact, but certainly enough room for me. The room was well decorated. The breakfast options were excellent. The scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked. They also had a variety... More

A great hotel in a great location. All staff were friendly and helpful. This is a great hotel to base yourself at when exploring the art and culture of Florence. I requested breakfast in bed for my partner one morning. The staff were there on time with a nice additional birthday wish from the staff. The perfect hotel.

We stayed at the Roomate Isabella for 3 nights in early December 2015. It was wonderful and a great value! The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious (huge really), very clean and a very nice bathroom. Breakfast was good. The location could not be better and is close to all the major attractions.

Shoe shopping heaven is right out the front door. Bed+bedding is very comfortable, and while the room was rather dark, there was both a full-length mirror and a desktop mirror for makeup. Wish the room temp was better able to be controlled. During the day we just opened the windows, but at night for quiet sleep, closed windows meant we... More

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.
