Couldn't have asked for a more wonderful room - an incredible view of the Duomo and a jacuzzi too! The service - both before our visit and during our stay was exceptional. We especially enjoyed the chocolate cake - both as an evening snack with tea service in their beautiful dining/sitting room as well as at breakfast!

My wife and me booked this lovely looking hotel 2-3 weeks before our arrival. We chose the basic room. Since the booking was done, the hotel staff contacted us 2-3 times to ask for our arrival time and prefers. All via email, which was very intuitive and easy to track. Once we got there, we discovered the staff decided to... More

The View from the room is so nice. The room was always kept clean by the house keeper. Location is convenient for sightseeing. We recommend this hotel when visiting Firenze. But keep in mind that staffs are not in the hotel at night. Water pressure of the shower is the only weak point for me. I like the smelling of... More

This was my first stay at this beautiful Palazzo and it won't be my last. Situated perfectly in the heart of Florence right beside the Duomo and walking distance to everything i planned to see. Staying in this quiet luxury, one is reminded of elegant aristocracy: rooms with high ceilings, exquisite original frescoes and furnished lovingly with antiques. The attention... More

We stayed one night at the Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo during our week-long stay in Tuscany. Staying in Room 7 was spectacular, there are giant windows with views in three directions. Of course, the wonderful views of the Duomo make it look like you could reach out and touch it. The opposite view was stunning of the hills and bell... More

Stayed at Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo with my parents for what ended up being two nights in June. It's an historic palazzo just adjacent to the Duomo, so the location really can't be beat, especially for a place that feels like such a family residence. The staff and service were incredible. I spent my last day of this trip stuck... More

Lovely place to stay in Florence. Only about one block from the Duomo but in a very quiet courtyard. Very comfortable rooms, air conditioned, fully equipped bath. In a lovely old palazzo. Breakfast room oozes charm and the food is lovely. Our flight was very much delayed and they had someone to let us in. Very helpful with restaurant suggestions... More

I travelled with a couple of friends to Florence, but could only get a booking at this hotel for myself and my daughter. I chose it for the location, twin beds and price. There is a strong smell at reception, obviously they're trying to get rid of the mould smell with chemicals, but it is a very bad first impression.... More

My new husband and I stayed at Palazzo Niccolini for four nights as the first stop on our European honeymoon. We had a fantastic stay in the Duomo Suite... very spacious, bright, and a wonderful view of the Duomo. The period furnishings, paintings and fresco on the ceiling were beautiful and we felt so privileged to be staying in such... More

This is a small, privately-owned family palazzo right next door to the Duomo. We stayed in Room 7, which is above the third floor with windows 10 feet high looking in three directions: onto the apse and dome of the Duomo itself and then towards the hills, towards Santa Croce, and towards Fiesole. This used to be the old drying... More
