We would thoroughly recommend A Florence View. It is housed in a charming historical building, that is right outside the Duomo and so really close to all the main attractions. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, assisting us with booking attractions and restaurants. We also very much enjoyed the delicious breakfasts that were served in our room each morning.

The location can't be beat. Our room overlooked the duomo and the tower. The train station is an easy walk as are numerous sites. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and offered a map with suggestions on places to visit, restaurants to try (and we did try some, excellent). Our room was well equipped though very warm (we turned the... More

Very central location. Walk out the door and you are at the Duomo. We were worried about the noise, so requested a room with the terrace view. Very quiet. No street noise whatsoever. Might hear the trash being collected in the morning. Very nice staff. Good size room for location and price. Would stay here again.

We stayed here late October to celebrate my birthday. As everyone says the location is fantastic - right beside the Duomo. We arrived late Wednesday evening - Guilana was away on business/holiday but was not a problem as her sister (sorry I cannot remember her name) was wonderful. We telephoned when we landed around 20:30 that evening and her son... More

Wow, all of the 5 star reviews you've read are spot on! We have a beautiful view of the Duomo. Guilana's hospitality is warm and sincere; Guilana is absolutely lovely. We are leaving tomorrow, but not without some screaming and tears!

What a special place to stay - right in the mix of it by the Duomo. We had an apt at the very top overlooking the Duomo - Large Bedroom Living room, Breakfast area, large bath and our own terrace. The best part was the service from the owners - they were so helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible. Just... More

My daughter and I had a weekend away together in Florence and stayed at A Florence View. We could not fault it from the moment we arrived. Such friendliness, spotless facilities, a delightful view from the lounge area of our two-roomed 'suite' across the Duomo Plaza. The breakfast was the best continental breakfast I have ever had, which was brought... More

My wife and I stayed here a year ago for several nights. Excellent location, near all the museums. Giuliana is a gracious hostess, full of helpful suggestions. The rooms were lovely and spacious, and the view of the Duomo is superb. A wonderful experience.

The location is great right on the piazza. The room size was large, bathroom was a bit squishy. The room decor was good the lady running the place was excellent and would be in anyway to please. Breakfast was included in the cost but if you are expecting a cooked breakfast then forget it as she serves up what she... More

We had 3 nights planned at A Florence View B&B. We arrived late in the evening and we were met by a happy man (we later learned he is Giuliana's brother). He set us up in a room overlooking the Duomo plaza, gave us a couple of recommendations for dinner and was off to his home. We woke up to... More
