Chose this B&B recommended by Rick Steves to be central to sightseeing. The location is perfect with a view of the Duomo, and the spacious high-ceiling room was lovely. Near everything as Florence is very walkable. We walked to climb Giotto's Campanile (bell tower) for the best views, Academia Gallery, Uffizi Gallery, Mercato Centrale for dinner, San Lorenzo leather market,... More

This hotel was great and the room was beautiful! The room was very large, with several chairs to sit on and a small table with chairs. There were two closets. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very large, as well. The water was hot and flowed well. Two minor complaints were that the wifi didn't always work in... More

Myself and a friend of mine stayed here at the end of September....we were blown away by the hospitality and friendliness of the owner and the amazing rooms this B&B has to offer. I requested a room with a view and Mariano was gracious enough to upgrade us to an amazing room overlooking the Duomo. He met us at the... More

B and B large room, comfortable bathroom, breakfast in room, electric kettle, cups, fridge and safe. Clean. We had the Dante room, not much of a view. Didn't need it, very centrally located. Host was pleasant and helpful. No curfew as you keep keys. We could easily return to the room while going from site to site in Florence.

We loved our stay at La Residenza del Proconsoslo. We stayed in a front room with a balcony with a view of the street and a nice side view of the Duomo and the Bell Tower. The room had 15 foot ceilings and had an Old World feel. Mariano was sweet and helpful making dinner reservations and cab calls for... More

Beautiful B&B in the city center. You can see the Duomo from your window. The room is huge with a poster bed, 20 foot high beam ceilings and renovated bathroom. The staff is very friendly. This is not a hotel!! It is a B&B but everything you need is right outside the door and it is a short walk to... More

We stayed here on 2 occasions during our 3 week stay in Italy May-june, 2015. The Residenza is about one block from the Duomo and within easy walking distance of Uffizzi, Academia, and other key sights in Florence. The owner/manager, Mariano, is efficient, helpful, and very considerate of his guests. Our first room was at back of residence so no... More

We stayed for four nights in early May 2015. This small hotel has so many good things I don't know where to start. Mariano greeted us and got us settled. He is so friendly and helpful anytime we had a question. The hotel's location is fantastic, only a few steps away from the Piazza del Duomo. Several rooms including ours... More

We had a great four-day stay in Florence and a great home base in la Residenza. Location - The location was steps away from the famous Florence Cathedral and Duomo and in a central part of the city. Easy access to the city's bus system and numerous sites in the heart of Florence such as the Uffizi. It's about a... More

This 7 (?) room B&B is located right at the Duomo. It has classic large rooms and classic decor. All that the Duomo area has to offer is right out the front door, and it is an easy walk from the train station. There is almost no common area, so you choose your breakfast and the time you want it,... 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.
