Great, spacious, clean room with good sized bath and shower. Graziella was absolutely terrific, so gracious, friendly and helpful. Cooked us a terrific breakfast and cappuccino and set up a taxi to pick us up for the airport at an ungodly hour. The location is just close enough for walking anywhere near the Duomo, Ufizzi and Academia, but in a... More

Panella's was situated in a historic street in the centre of Florence only five minutes walk from the dome. Our room was impeccable, incredibly large and tastefully decorated in classy vintage furnishings that gave a real taste of the city. There was also good air conditioning and a powerful hair dryer compared to most that we came across! Best of... More

We were visiting our daughter in Florence while she was there studying abroad. We stayed at Panella's Residence for 10 nights. As this was our first time in Italy, we were apprehensive about spending the entire time at one place. We quickly learned that we had made the right choice, when our flight was delayed by 10 hours, and Graziella... More

We stayed in Panella's for 3 lovely nights on Vacation. Location is quite good - about a 5- 10 min walk to the Duomo area, just far enough away from the tourist madness in Florence, but def walking distance. The rooms are really nice here. The building was an old convent at one point. We stayed in room #41. It... More

We were received warmly, check in was easy, the room was large and clean and the breakfast each morning was great. The location was very convenient. Graziella provided us with lots of recommendations on places to see.

This is a very nice place to stay. Rooms are big with nice bathrooms with blow dryers (for the ladies) but bring soap and washcloth, no place has washcloths over here. The owner couldn't be any nicer. Very centralized to the city. Everything is within walking distance.

My wife and I stayed at Panella's Residence (room #43) for 4 nights at the end of March. Our room was clean, and gigantic by european standards at a great price. Graziella is a gracious host and will try to accommodate shifting schedules as much as possible given that she runs a small B&B. Florence is a very walkable city... More

We spent New Years Eve in Florence this year and stayed about a week at Panella's Residence. This was the perfect way to start the new year. Graziella is an amazing host. She was helpful with anything we needed from restaurant recommendations to day trips. She really made us feel welcome. Our room was large for a European B&B and... More

We stayed 5 nights and had a grand experience. The location is terrific, close to all the major sights and also within walking distance of regions south of the Arno. Our spotless room was very large with two windows, facing the street. There were workmen right outside our window (an accident of timing). Though noisy during the day, it was... More

My partner and I stayed here from 30th Sept 2014 to 3rd Oct 2014 and couldn't find a fault. The location is amazing with all the sight within walking distance, we also managed to walk from the train station to the B&B so even saved on taxi fares. When we arrived we were advised that the queues for the Uffzi... 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.
