We stayed in this hotel in October 2012. The hotel is actually the first floor of a building. The room was big enough, looking at the garden of the church next to it. The breakfast was limited but very delicious. The coffee was great! The hotel is close to everywhere. We never used any transportation. The only problem was, in... More

Located right on the Piazza degli Ottaviana and next to the Basilica di Santa Maria Novella you are right in the middle of history as you open your window each morning! The station is a few minutes away- and the Dome about 5 to 7 minutes away. The hotel traces itself back to the 1600's and the rooms are full... More

We recently just got back from our first trip to Italy and stayed the the Domus Florentiae-it was in a perfect location! 5 minute or less walk to the train station, 5 minute walk to the Dome, near everything! It felt very safe. The rooms were very clean. We stayed in one of the two rooms up the stairs-there wasn't... More

This hotel was recommended by our travel agent, T. Anderson at AAA in Lexington, KY. It was an excellent recommendation for our short visit in Florence. About 5-minute walk from SMN train station, on the tiny passage just east of the church of Santa Maria Novella. Small entrance, but well marked and easy to find. Reception staff were very helpful,...

My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Domus back in May. We were referred by a close friend who travels frequently. We were happy to find that it was so close to the train station and in a safe location. Our room was big with a spacious, clean bathroom. From the pictures posted, the room looks dated but we...

It is hard to fault this hotel for things outside of its control. The experience we had was mostly positive. Our room was lovely and charming. It was quite large and appealing. The bathroom facilities were nice and they even had slippers for us to use. There was an inroom safe, reliable wifi, and the breakfast was pretty standard to... More

My husband and I stayed three nights at this hotel during our honeymoon. We were initially excited when shown our room. It is a bit dated, but in a regal and charming way. It was a superior room with a view...directly above the flags over the front door. The first night, I realized this wasn't so desirable. The bed was... More

The hotel is located very near to the Central Railway Station and only a few steps from the Santa Maria Novella church (and its square). The room we stayed in was really cozy and clean. We could open our window and see the cathedral, which is a nice view. Every morning breakfast was served by a nice staff, on a... More

My partner and I wanted to stay somewhere central and cheap for our short stay in Florence... We chose this hotel. After 3 nights we couldn't wait to leave! The beds, the pillows - horribly uncomfortable. But the worst thing about our stay was the horrible smell which when we first got there was an overwhelming bleach smell, later we... More

We stayed here for four nights on a recent trip to Florence. We could not have been more pleased with the facility, the people, the convenient location, or our overall trip (and that is coming from an American!). This hotel should be rated higher than it is in the TripAdvisor ratings. The location is wonderful for exploring Florence and we... More
