I had read the reviews on TA before staying. You should know this is primarily a religious house that provides lodging for guests. The sisters are deeply caring, but have limited English. If you expect a "hotel" stay elsewhere. If you want an interesting and quiet place to stay, I recommend it. The sisters are a combination of older Italian... More

Old convent turned into B&B by current smaller nun population who are of course so very nice. Got two single rooms with bath en-suite, adequately furnished, bed comfortable; stayed two nights for less than 140euro. Location close enough to all for a easy walking. Noise at night from street Saturday night, as happens in cities, so bring ear plugs. Of... More

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful old convent with a perfect location and warm environment. The nun who checked us in was so sweet and accommodating. We had a nice breakfast and we were able to attend Mass on Sunday morning as the sisters have a Chapel. The price was terrific

Terrific location. Beautiful old convent building. Still operating as such. Nice comfortable rooms. Adequate breakfast. Lovely garden. Definitely an experience worth having. Can be noisy at night with a street side room.

This is a very nice place to stay especially if you don’t need a big four or five star hotel. This is not the Waldorf, it’s a nice clean, quiet and friendly place to stay in Florence. It’s only a few blocks from the Duomo and there are quite a few places to eat nearby. If you aren’t up to... More

Florence is a very busy touristy city that can feel sometimes overwhelming, but I found the Casa per Ferie Suore Oblate dell'Assunione the perfct retreat for travellers looking for a peaceful and homely atmosphere. Rooms and breakfast are basic and no frills, although everuthing is very clean and proper. The casa per ferie is hosted in an ancient florentine palace... More

A very special place to stay. Clean, plain, with a garden, great location. Run by nuns. Single beds. We loved it. Breakfast was sparse. The price is great. You can walk everywhere. Quiet. Interesting.

My stay at the convent exceeded my expectations. The room was comfortable, very quiet and the air conditioning worked very well. Also, the wi fi was fast and reliable. My favorite part was the garden which was almost always empty. In fact, I only rarely saw other people during my stay which added to the romantic/old world feeling of the... More

This was a short notice booking. Directions were spot on from the railway station (though we mis-read them!). The Nuns were friendly, but left us alone. I stayed in a single en-suite which was clean and perfectly adequate. There was a beautiful garden, and we listened to the Nuns singing on the Sunday morning before we checked out. There is... 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.
