My daughter and I are staying here 2 nights (tonight is our second night). The room we have is 2 floors up from reception. We're only one floor away from the amazing rooftop terrace! All sights and many good restaurants are within 1/4 mile of the hotel. The only bad thing we've encountered is the heat - no a/c, but... More

This place was not worth the money. It doesn't even look like a hotel. Feels like a make shift apartment. We didn't even last 1 night before we had to find a different place to stay. It was loud and dumpy.

The pensione is a 5 minute walk from the train station along the main road to the Duomo, its located within an apartment block between shops so look for the nameplate on the door. The owner was waiting for us, we arrived just before 7pm, she was friendly and checked us in to one of the rooms quickly. She only... More

The hotel was older, but did the job. Beautiful rooftop terrace to have a picnic/drinks and enjoy the view of the Duomo and the rest of Florence. One downside...... traffic noise, but the ambulance driving by with sirens wailing every 15 mins. for 3 days straight got to me eventually. The Ambulance must be stationed very close, because it was... More

We have stayed there for 2 nights. The location is perfect just in the middle of train station and Duomo. Bed is clean and good. Bathroom is a little bit small, if you are below average in terms of height and weight, I do recommend you as a budget option in Florence.

Soggiorno La Cupola is on a great spot in Florence, more or less next to the Duomo. Its big roof terrace is amazing, with a great view of the church and bell tower and over the city. You can sit there day and night. The room itself is small (especially the bathroom) but clean and has a nice italian atmosphere.... More

I should start by saying that our expectations were not really high (for ~$60 American what could we expect?) so what we got from Soggiorno La Cupola met, and in some cases exceeded, those expectations. Many other reviewers have mentioned that the staff (namely a woman who is perhaps the sole proprietor) is not very present and speaks only Italian.... More

Our experience at Soggiorno La Cupola was abysmal. A rude staff that made no effort to communicate with us (even though we were truly trying to speak Italian with them) and left us waiting outside the hotel for a total of three hours before we could even get in, horribly uncomfortable beds, dirty cramped bathroom, joke of a B&B "breakfast"...

Apart from the location and rooftop, I didn't think this hotel was anything special. It was really hard to communicate with the staff. Rooms were ok, bathroom was tiny for a petite person like myself. Place was ok for an overnight stay, don't think I'd stay here any longer than that.

The staff here speaks little English so communication can be a bit difficult. But they are full of smiles and try their best to help. Breakfast is not at the b&b but at a cafe which actually worked out better for us. The best reason to stay here is the amazing terrace - perfect place to relax after a long... More
