This is in a fantastic location. Right next to the Duomo. The B&B itself is very clean. Our room was pretty big, considering the location. If you aren't planning to be up before 7:00 a.m., you will be, as the Duomo bells start ringing at 7. Although, why would you be sleeping in instead of seeing the city? The owners... More

I stated at this hotel in October 2014. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Great location! If you are a light sleeper it might not be the best. The square is cleaned early in the morning, the cathedral bell rings by 7 AM and people are out in the square till very late at night. The breakfast that is... More

Centrally located in Florence, this B&B on an upper floor of a building across the square from the Bapistry was clean and include a very good breakfast every morning. I only spent 3 nights here, but had no complaints. I decided on this hotel based on Rick Steves' recommendation and the low price. When I checked in I was given... More

The location of the B&B is fabulous and the service and value match it quite well. Windows block out the street noise (really!) and while rooms may be small/cozy, this is Italy and you have no need to stay in your room! The husband/wife team are fantastic and gave me great restaurant suggestions and info on visiting exhibits, etc. Laundry... More

I do a lot of research before choosing a room. I had high hopes but due to overbooking, we didn't get to stay here. I booked directly with their site & at Rick Steve's recommendation. To her credit, the owner did email me a couple days before our arrival & found us another room, but their error caused us distress... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Soggiorno Battistero has the perfect location right next to the Duomo, making it easy to locate from the train station or airport and also very easy for moving around the city. It's about a stone's throw away from Via dei Calzaiuoli and a short walk to either the Uffizi or Accademedia... More

We walked from the train station in Firenze to this B&B in Piazza San Giovanni--across from the Baptistry, a stone's throw from the Duomo! Beds comfortable, room very clean; breakfast was so-so, but being in the center of activity in Florence more than compensated for that.

We had a room for 3 (Mom, Dad and 20-year-old daughter) with a view of the Baptistery and Duomo. The location could not be more ideal – to open the window and see the Duomo’s massive and multi-colored façade was wonderful. (Unfortunately, during our visit, the Baptistery façade was undergoing a face-lift and was shrouded in construction scaffolding, but the... More

Our stay was over Mother's day weekend. We opted for a quieter room over having a view and were given Room 6. No noise at all. Spotlessly clean. Antiques in the room were a nice surprise. Bathroom updated, but tiny as so many are. Elevator, so no lugging baggage upstairs. Explicit directions from the bus/train station. Luca was there running... More
