Our first trip to Florence was treasured in the Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo Hotel. Our room was upgraded to a gorgeous opulent suite. The rooms were oversized with high vaulted ceilings, elegantly decorated with antiques, and marbled bathroom floors. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Florence-steps from the Florence Cathedral. The hotel was built in the 15th... More

Many good hotels are simply the same all over the world. Palazzo Niccolini instead is different and therefore unique. The difference is in the history. We have been for three days totally immersed in the history of this beautiful old Italian Palazzo, in the history of art (from the windows you feel you could touch the Cathedral!), of literature (every...

Beautiful palace in a great location right by the Duomo (and yet quiet). Very welcoming staff, who upgraded us to a larger room. Charming room with incredible volumes and very nice deco. Only the breakfast could be improved (but is good enough already).

Perfection! We stayed 8 wonderful nights in the Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo in late December 2013 & early January 2014. Because we booked almost last-minute, we had an opportunity to stay in different rooms - each more beautiful than the last. The Blue Suite was superb, but the Empire Suite took our breath away. 25 ft ceilings with original frescoes,... More

Stunning location! Duomo literally on the doorstep! The palace was like visiting an art museum in itself, beautiful ceilings and walls covered in renaissance art. Beautiful room with exceptionally nice bathroom. Staff solved every problem, you couldn't do better than to plan a trip to Florence using Paulo's advice, also a great help to those who can only speak English.... More

This was a fantastic discovery for me. First, imagine stepping out the door of your boutique hotel and onto a cobblestone street, staring right up at Santa Maria del Fiore, the towering Renaissance cathedral that is the defining feature of this magnificent city of Florence. Second, imagine a beautiful, quiet, clean, stylish, classy boutique hotel that caters to you individually.... More

I travel often to Florence from New York and Hollywood for both work and pleasure. The Palazzo Niccolini is utterly fantastic, charming, original, historic, lovely. The staff is fabulous and friendly. If you want an authentic, intimate Florentine stay in town, you can't do better than the Palazzo Niccolini and the location is superb. Stay here if you can, it...

Although a very cool location, we stayed in this hotel for 4 nights while visiting my daughter in Florence and was disappointed with our stay. Knowing we would be staying in a 500 year old palace we expected some things but there was a horrible smell every night that almost caused us to try to find another place to stay,... More

I am very sad you were disappointed with your stay. We had an issue on which our plumber had to investigate for some time before he could find the cause of it. The problem we had that week was, indeed, unusually strong and, even if everything is now fortunately solved, I am extremely sorry you had to put up with... More

20 ft high ceilings with frescos, Windows overlooking the Duomo. Large bathroom and bedroom. Antiques. Charming breakfast room. Great service. Special treat if you want to feel like you are experiencing Florence in another era (but modern comforts).

This hotel is a beautiful palace just steps from the Duomo. Our room was lovely and the bathroom was huge. Breakfast had many delicious choices and we loved the tea at night. Our only criticism was that it is so majestic that we felt a bit unworthy.
