Great, small, personal B & B just 1/2 block from the Duomo. Great hearing the church bells ring. Nicely appointed room and bathroom with very friendly staff. Breakfast selections were delivered to the room each morning. Location couldn't be better. All the sites withing 10 - 20 minute walk. Only needed taxi upon departure because of luggage. Favorite gelato shop... More

My husband and I stayed at La Residenza del Proconsolo for 3 nights in June 2014. The location of this B&B is very convenient as it is right next to the Duomo and within walking distance all of the main attractions in Florence. Our room and bathroom were very spacious. The rooms are fairly clean, but I would recommend wearing... More

Recommended by Rick Steve's - easy to walk to from train station. Located right on corner of Duomo square, easy access to all attractions. Room was very big with great bathroom - large shower, breakfast rolled in on cart every morning ( hot - good - coffee with crossaints, cereal, yogurt, cookies and juices. Great price for the money.

From train station – 10 min walk, just 1 minute to Il Duomo (aka The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore), everything is on an easy walking distance – 10 min to Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizzi, 12 min to Ponte Vecchio, 15 to Palazzo Pitti etc. Continental breakfast may be typical for a pensione but somewhat sparse, mediocre...

I expected a negative review from this travellers from the beginning but not after their departure. With this review they confirmed their insincerity, so, I would like to reply in detail to their bad review. All our guests know before booking that we serve the "CONTINENTAL" breakfast, so cheeses and cold cuts are not included. If the guests don't pay... More

There are not enough positive words I can use to describe La Residenza del Proconsolo. Simply put this place is perfect. The room we stayed in had a fantastic view of the Duomo. The room itself was gorgeous, wooden beams and high ceilings, brilliant, large windows and a lovely bathroom. Extremely comfortable four poster bed with as many pillows as... More

The staff, service, location and amenities were perfect for what we needed. We came on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and helpful. Request that they set you up with reservations for some of the local museums. They are very accommodating.

We were very excited to stay in this historic building near the duomo. Mariano the owner was great to communicate with before arriving. We were greeted by one of his sons and went to our Michelangelo room. It had a double canopy bed, a cot and a pullout small sofa. Leaning out the window you could view the top of... More

First of all thank you for your nice words about us. At the same time I can accept observations that are not good because they... More

We didn't need fancy but wanted some charm. Location, cleanliness and a moderate price were key. We found it all here. Tucked off a corner of the Piazza del Duomo, the hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to everything in Florence. But with its high wooden ceilings, terra cotta floors, canopied bed, lace covered shuttered windows, and a simple but... More

Right by the Duomo, this is a great location for visiting Florence. Also, there is a cab stand a few yards away so easy to get a taxi when leaving the hotel. Since the location is great ,there is a lot of city noise. So, if you're not used to city noises when sleeping - bring earplugs. The staff is... More

This B & B is located a few minutes walk to most of the top attractions in Florence. We never had to use any transportation. The staff was helpful but not intrusive. The building is 500 years old and the rooms reflect that antiquity while being comfortable, clean and modern. It was everything I hoped for based on the pictures... More
