Great location, right opposite The Duomo. You can walk to wherever you want from the hotel. Very warm welcome, very helpful and insightful about what to see etc. Amazing breakfast in the morning, delivered to your room and made to order. Highly recommended, amazing value - especially for Florence.

Our hostess, Giuliana, is so welcoming, sweet and helpful. We were treated with a bottle of wine on arrival. The bedroom was on the backside and a sitting room overlooking Piazza del Duomo. Fantastic view, seeing Firenze go by. Style of furniture goes with the 17th century building we were staying in. Everywhere clean and tidy. Breakfast was of your... More

My title could have gone on with superlatives as this place has it all! It has the charm of a 1632 building with the added modern amenities and security. Just outside the window of our spacious bedroom, is a view dominated by the Baptistry and the nearby Duomo. We have a relaxation room with a sofa and a fridge. The... More

It was our first time in Florence, and we could not have asked for a better location. We had a room facing the Cathedral, and that made the stay even better. The square may have been a little noisy, but with the windows closed I barely noticed. We spent a lot of time at the B&B just looking out the... More

This was the third time I have stayed here in Florence, each time under different management, and each time it keeps getting better. First, the location is perfect: Right on the square with the Cathedral. It's about 10 minutes walk from the main train station and bus station (Santa Maria Novella), and another 5-10 minutes walk to Florence's main attractions.... More
