Had a great stay at Room Mate Isabella. Centrally located on a nice (upmarket shopping) street. No noise issues for sleeping. Usual quirky/funky Room Mate design touches, some work, some not so much. I enjoy the decor, but could probably only stand it for a few days! :-) Great corner room (double deluxe) with plenty of extra space. Bed was... More

The Room Mate Isabella hotel is centrally located on the "designer shop street" within Florence, 10 minutes to the train station & 5 to the river and the duomo. The reception is on the first floor up several steps; thankfully the porter helped us with our bags. Reception staff were very friendly and efficient. We requested we were moved to... More

Stayed in the suite following our wedding and can't say enough good things. Stunning room, and the view, the view, the view! Breathtaking! There are better places to stay in Florence (and we saw one or two of them from the window) but the price and quality must surely make this one of the great getaway hotels in the world.... More

The staff at this hotel make it a 4 star. So accommodating and kind. Sent us free prosecco as a honeymoon gift! The room was nice, a little musty and a window that faced a wall of the building next door. But decorated nicely and comfortable bed. The air conditioning didn't work well but at least it kept the room... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. The front desk offered many suggestions and booked several dinner reservations for us as well as helped with a day tour. The breakfast was decent each morning and a great way to start the day. Everything in Florence is in walking distance of this hotel. 5 minutes from the train station, 5... More

Great location, good service, friendly, nice decor, very spacious. One negative - our air con was rattling all of our first night but it was fixed eventually. Location is great - next to Gucci and all tourist attractions. Breakfast is basic but adequate.

Hotel is located amongst all the higher end shops: Hermes, Celine, Gucci, Roberto cavalli, Prada, etc. therefore, we expected Isabella to be really fancy too but it's just average. As with the rest of the rooms we've experienced in Europe, the AC doesn't get below 72 degrees F and it's 99 degrees F outside. My ideal temperature is around 65... More

I was a little worried what I'd walk in to with a name like "Room Mate"... kind of made me worry that it would be a hostel or something, but I trusted the TripAdvisor reviews. Room Mate Isabella did not disappoint. What a great little hotel in a great location in Florence. It is a few blocks from the river,... More

Room Mate Isabella was close to the shops and attractions, the location is perfect. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are clean, our room had a little window with looked out to a court yard and didn’t give much light. The bed was very comfortable, there was a free little bottle of water and a packet of cookies.... More

Luca A, Director de Recepción at Room Mate Isabella, responded to this review

Dear Ms. Legier, it is so nice to read that you had a very nice stay at Room Mate Isabella. Isabella is located in one of the most exclusive streets of the city, in the very centre, and it is possible to go anywhere in a few minutes walk. Also, thanks to the comfort of the rooms, their exquisite decor,... 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.
