I’ll start by saying this (and elaborate below): when you reserve a room here MAKE SURE TO TELL THEM (via e-mail or phone) WHAT TIME TO EXPECT YOU. And make sure they write it down EXACTLY – my American friends – using military time in this case might help. Get their phone number where they can be reached when you... More

Relais del Duomo is centrally situated. It is within walking distance to most of the art sites like Uffizi Gallery, The Palazio Vecchio etc. It is also situated around the corner of the Duomo, the Cathedral of Santa Maria. It is also close to the shopping area of luxurious goods, like Gucci, LV, Burberry, Miu Miu etc.The B&B is on... More

Location is perfect - steps away from the gorgeous Duomo. Room was basic but clean and spacious. The breakfast but minimal but sufficient. One issue I ran into was the owner barely spoke English so I had a real tough time communicating with him. We were also annoyed because check out was 10:30 and at 9:30 we said we were... More

Our stay at Relais del Duomo was more than we could have ever wished for. Elisabetta, our host, made Relais del Duomo a home away from home. She was extremely friendly, helpful and literally couldn't do enough for us and fellow guests. Elisabetta bought fresh croissants and made us tasty hot coffee each morning for breakfast. Tea, coffee, fresh fruit... More

We stayed in Florence for 3 nights and this B&B is in a great location. The staff was helpful and nice. We thought the room and bathroom were dated and not very clean. The location was definitely the best thing about this B&B.

We stayed here for two nights in May. The location is excellent, an easy walk to everywhere we wanted to go. We walked over from the train station with our luggage no problem. The hostess was helpful and friendly. She recommended a couple excellent restaurants including La Strada for steak Florintine. Our room overlooked a noisy street but the double... More

This place is a gem. The hosts are amazing. It's a small operation - book early if you're considering it. Location is sensational - easy walk to anywhere. Breakfast was lovely. I wish we had more time to make use of the staff and their great ideas for travel. We felt at home here. The value for the location and... More

Our host at this wonderful B&B could not have been more helpful. She provided freshly baked pastries for breakfast each morning as well as took the time to talk to us about our trip to Florence and offered maps and advice about the city whenever possible. The room was cozy and adequate (we stayed in the beige room), with a... More

Great place to stay. It was literally right around the corner of the Duomo. It made it really easy to stop by to freshen up or to relax. The room was clean and bathrooms were also. The breakfast was simple but coffee was great! If you can not decide on hotel or B&B...B&B is the way to go in italy.... More

My husband and I spent 5 days there this fall. The location was fantastic - so close to everything. Our hostess, Elisabetta was charming and very helpful.
