The location can not be beat! That said, the room we stayed in was clean but pretty spare. A table to eat breakfast on would have been great. The bathroom had no shelf to put toiletries, and there is no shelf in the shower to place soap or shampoo. The staff was nice, and spoke english. We stayed several days,... More

We found this place going through the lanes from our place of stay and was stunned to see this beautifully designed church amidst a colony of shops. It was really beautiful and as it was raining outside we coul spend a little more time inside see a child lighting the tree of lamps. It was a wonderful visit.

I knew this place was close to the Duomo when we booked it, so I expected it would be convenient. But until we walked into the piazza in all its glory, as the bells clanged in the camponile, I didn't know what an enchanting experience it would be. The hotel is simple, not fancy. There are probably many travelers who... More

B&B Soggiorno Battistero is located right next to the Duomo. It is in the middle of all Florence's sights. The hosts we more than helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable with windows which shut off any street noise below! A great place to stay.

Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Kelly and Luca were wonderful hosts! Breakfast was a great treat every morning. Nothing compares to that location! Across from the Duomo and above the Piazza action was wonderful. Great that when the window was closed, you heard no street noise! Great value for the view!

The location is very good, right in the middle of everything. Our room and bathroom were large, clean and comfortable. Kelly was a phenomenal hostess and went our of her way to make sure our stay was excellent. She provided much insider information and even came in early Sunday morning to make our breakfast before we headed out to an... More

Besides being very welcoming, both Kelly and Luca were super helpful in giving us directions, recommendations and general travel advice. You can't beat the location and the view from our room was excellent.

What a charming place to stay, wonderful staff!! You can't beat the location! My room overlooked the Florence Cathedral and Piazza Duomo. It was hard to find at first, I walked right passed it but its located right next to the Restaurant/record store. I had a single room with a twin bed bathroom (t's a small shower) and there was...

On a trip to Florence in June 2014, we loved staying at the Soggiorno Battistero. We found the hotel in Rick Steves' book on Italy, which gave us lots of good advice about the trip. The hotel won't work for you if you want a super modern fancy hotel, but the location was amazing and the room was very clean... More

The B&B is a challenge to find (only a small sign next to a large door), but well worth the find. First and foremost the location is fantastic with most attractions and bus/train station within waling distance. Our room was clean, simple and spacious. The air conditioner was not operating at 100% but the ceiling fans and cool evenings helped... 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.
