We booked independently on line and had everything arranged before we got there by helpful staff. On arrival we were treated brilliantly, given great advice on local places of interest, restaurants and cafes and the hop-on-hop-off buses. The rooms are great value for money, breakfast in the dining room is perfect before a busy day sight-seeing, and the beds comfortable.

I stayed at this hotel about 2weeks ago for 2 nights.Location is great but that's about it. Poor breakfast. the worst was the bathroom. Filthy with molds and stranger's hair on the walls.the first night I could not shower because there was no hot water. I then informed the receptionist who had the manager come over and see for himself.... More

The location is in the centre of Florence - within easy reach of all sights. However ,despite the location the hotel is very quiet , peaceful and relaxing due to double glazing , wooden shutters etc. The rooms , layout and amenities are exceptionally quirky and comfortable - totally in keeping with the historical architecture and ambience of the building....

This is the second time that I have stayed at this hotel. It is literally steps away from the Duomo as well as the Uffizzi and a short walk to the Ponte Vecchio. This is a small hotel but the staff is wonderful. There is a nice breakfast served each morning. Additionally, there is a rooftop terrace that is great... More

Location can't be beat, a few steps away from main locations, staff was beyond pleasant and explained everything we asked. Breakfast was very good and varied. Wish I had discovered their cute outdoor terrace earlier, the perfect spot for wine before going to bed. No frills, excellent value!

This hotel is within a stone's of many of the main attractions - Il Duomo less than one block, Uffizzi Galleries and Ponte Vecchio both short and scenic walks. Each member of the staff cared for you as though you were a family member and their recommendations were flawless. Our room on the first night was very noisy and we... More

Situated on a pedestrian street 2 mins. from the Duomo in one direction, 4 mins. from the Uffizzi in the other and 15 mins. walk from the station. Modest street entrance next to the Disney Store opens on to a corridor, stone steps and lift. The 3 star Axial has its entrance on the 1st floor. (The 2 star Maxim... More

I recently stayed here for four nights. The location is excellent within a short distance of all the main sights and the central train station. I would describe the hotel as being perfectly adequate, but it definitely falls within the "no-frills" category. The rooms are rather basic and in need of a bit of decorative TLC and updating. The breakfast... More

I'll keep it simple. Location was super convenient being so close to Duomo and everything else. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. If you're interested in a fancy entrance to the hotel off the street then this one isn't for you but it's no reason not to book. You literally walk out of... More

Firstly catch a taxi from train if you have luggage - busy streets and the entrance is literally a door in a wall - easy to walk right by. This location is awesome - can walk everywhere in Florence from here and no shortage of places to eat or shop. The staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable about where... 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.
