“Great location and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

It's an easy walk from the train station and short walk to the Duomo. The hotel doesn't have a lift, which may be an issue if you struggle carrying your bags. The staff was very friendly and accommodating...they reserved tickets for me for the Accademia and Effizi. The hotel is clean, fairly modern, and serves a decent breakfast. The room is a bit small, however the bathroom is tiny. Zero room to use the toilet, virtually zero counter space, and a small shower with no soap dish. Other than the bathroom annoyances, I would definitely stay here again.

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for your kind feedback.
We would like only to rectify your review that our hotel has the lift, we really don't know how you can write that we haven't. I'm very sorry for this...
However i hope to see you again in our hotel.

Best regards,

We jumped out of the train station, not really knowing where to go. Price checked a few places... I'm still in shock how cheap this place was for how nice it was! It's located in a cute little square right by the station, and a short walk from the Duomo. We had a nice little quiet and clean room, with breakfast included, air conditioning and everything. I'm sure there are much nicer places in town, but for the price, I'd recommend this hotel to my own mother! Really nice front desk too!

Hotel without carpet is my best friend!! The room is clean, spacious. There is a safe deposit in the room and mini bar. Breakfast is good- lots of yummy pastries, ham and cheese, tea/ coffee, etc. location is 2 minutes walk to train station. Pretty much in shopping area. The room is quiet and air conditioned.

We really lucked out when we found this hotel near the train station. It's comfortable, immaculately clean and centrally located. The breakfast room is an outdoor patio on the 2nd floor over looking a piazza. You can't do better than this if you're staying in the beautiful city of Florence.

We stayed at Domus for 3 nights and found the room and facilities comfortable and clean. Service from staff was very polite and having breakfast on the balcony was a real bonus. The hotel is very handy to all main attractions with good restaurants off the adjacent square.

The location of the hotel is perfect. Close to rail station and the historic center, just in front of the Piazza Sta Maria Novella. Room and bathroom were for two people big enought and clean and the shower worked properly. Florence is an expensive town and a double room for 130 EUR per night, including breakfast is not easy to find. The hotel fulfilled our expectations. Finally you don't spend the whole day in the hotel room!The people of the reception were very kind and gave us plenty of information. Breakfast covered the basic needs in the morning, good coffee and cakes on the terrace.

Room Tip: Rooms to the courtyard are very quite.

We visited Florence for a week in May and chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The location is excellent - literally 5 minutes from train and bus stations, 10 minutes from Duomo and other major attractions. Note that Walkabout tours (we rate them excellent) have their pick up point at the rail station which could not be handier. The hotel rooms are very clean and functional. We had room 107 which is a superior room at the front of the hotel. The room and bathroom were both large, windows looked out onto piazza which could be noisy but did not bother us at all. Staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast is quite basic, but sufficient. We would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms at back would be quieter, but most likely smaller
