Lovely room, amazing location. Safe, clean and tidy, plus cheap water bottles for sale. The door was locked when I arrived (the fault of another guest not management) but repeated calls to management got me nowhere. After an hour guests with a key arrived and let me in. Would still HIGHLY recommend this place for a short stay.

Location is excellent, beside Dome and 5-8 min walk to Ponte Vecchio. Can be called budget friendly hotel. The staff were very friendly; we couldn't find hotel by car so they came and took us to the hotel. All rooms aren't same, our room is on the of air well, so dark and stuffy. Also room is small, nothing to... More

This small hotel is steps from the Duomo and everything else that you want to see is within easy walking distance. It is also an easy walk from the train station. The room was comfortable, quiet and clean. The bathroom was very nice and clean also. A great place to stay. I would stay there again.

We recently stayed 3 nights at Tourist House Battistero and would recommend this to anyone visiting Florence. The location was very central - 10 minute walk from the main train station and even less to the markets for food and shopping. On check in we were told you can cover the main attractions of Florence within a 20 minute walk... More

The location is perfect. The owner, Gabriella, contacted me right away after I made the reservation. She responded to my emails within a day or so whenever I made an inquiry. Upon learning that I would arrive after 6pm, she sent me the passcode to the main entrance and gave me all the check-in information. The room is spacious and... More

two blocks from the duomo, a 10 minute walk to the train station, cafes nearby and easy to find. it's definately a do-everything-yourself-place, but comfy. small bathroom but can't beat the price & location. tea maker in the room.

We stayed here, three rooms, June 13-16. This place is a real bargain. Big, clean rooms - not fancy but perfectly adequate - comfortable beds, OK bathrooms (the showers are a bit tight), and an absolutely unbeatable location - half a block from the Piazza del Duomo and a ten minute walk from the train station. The windows are all... More

The Tourist House Battistero is fantastically located - 10 minutes walk from the main train station and right in the centre to be only 15 minutes walk to all main sites, as well as going off the beaten track a bit. We were emailed clear instructions of how to find the place, which is in the same building as another... More

I booked a double room (with en-suite shower room) via Hotels.com for €90 per night. Good points: - Location is everything. This is a few steps away from Piazza del Duomo, and is less than 15 minutes walk from just about everything you’d want to see in Florence. - The room was absolutely huge (there was also a pull-out double...

The location is second to none. Very close to both the train station and the Duomo. Service was friendly. The host suggested we see "everything" in Florence, and, well, he was right! He was prepared to be more specific, but honestly, everything in Florence is worth seeing. The hotel is located in a multi-unit building, and our room was actually... More
