“Don't miss this quaint B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2007

My friend and I recently stayed at the Florence Dream Domus. We found
this wonderful B&B to be very comfortable. The room we had was large enough for us both. And we had doors that opened onto a courtyard....
It was very pleasant. The staff, particularly Jeffrey was helpful and
cooked a delicious breakfast. And the location was a plus-right near the Duomo.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2007

We booked our stay through e-mail with the owner. We chose the Lucrezia because it had a stand up shower. We did read reviews that said it was small, but that wasn't a problem with our family. The rooms were well decorated and the sitting area was comfy. They did allow the use of the computer without charging extra. Do be aware this is a three floor walk up. No elevator. The B & B was well located. We checked in late afternoon and we did not realize until after the staff had gone that they had put us in the wrong room. The Caterina only had a tub. We tried using the tub that night for our baths. The tub leaked on the floor, we had to use several towels to keep it from running into the rest of the room. The problem was explained the next day, we were told we would not able to move into the room we requested for another day. We still had to mop the floor up with towels for another day. ( No reduction in our room charges) The Lucrezia was a nice room, do be aware if you are a light sleeper, there was something mechanical on the other side of the wall by the bed that kicked on and off, day and night. It made it difficult falling asleep for my husband and I.

We stayed four nights late April '07. The first 10 days of our vacation was road-tripping through Tuscany, so it was kind of a shock to get into Florence. The Dream Domus is right in the middle of the old city, blocks away from Duomo. The room was lovely (see photo), clean, maintained daily. Geoffrey was courteous and helpful with all of our requests. Continental breakfast was good, nice to have free internet in lobby area. We actually didn't mind that there was no lift - i.e. you have to walk up two flights of stairs. We simply chalked it up to part of the 'experience'. The rooms were very quiet - overlooking a courtyard. Surprisingly, the only annoying noise we heard one night was other Yankee tourists who didn't realize their voices would carry so well with open verandas, marble floors, and stone walls. Great value.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2006

After researching the Florence Dream online and in travel guides, we were looking forward to our stay there in early October 2006. Unfortunately, when we arrived, the owner informed us that another couple already staying at the hotel had a delay in receiving their luggage and she needed to split up our group (my fiance and I were travelling with my parents) in order to accommodate them staying longer. The owner offered us the option of splitting us up and paying to stay at an apartment she owned down the street . The apartment was a 10 minute walk away from the Florence Dream. After we declined that offer, she made arrangements for my fiance and I to stay at another hotel on the same street. It also seemed strange that our room would be unavailable for 2 nights when the other travellers were only predicted to need one additional night.
In addition, we requested the booking of museum tickets through the Florence Dream. We later tried to contact the owner via e-mail to let her know that we were also interested in doing a walking tour and trying to make arrangements in order to avoid conflicting times with the museums. Unfortunately, despite multiple attempts to contact her, we didn't hear from her and found out when we checked in that the times conflicted.
My parents liked the Florence Dream well enough but agreed with other reviewers comments about the 3 flight stair climb after a long day of sightseeing. The Florence Dream is a nice bed and breakfast but being "bumped" from a hotel doesn't fit into most definitions of a nice stay. It seems like the Florence Dream may now have more business than it is able to handle and I would discourage other travellers from staying there.

  • Liked — very clean

Stayed at the Dream Domus 3 nights in October 2006, and we were very happy with it. Great location, beautiful rooms. Breakfast was very good. Computer with internet access available for guests at no cost in lobby. Staff was very helpful with directions or reservations; they reserved two museums for us. Quiet location close to everything and Florence is very walkable. Third floor of private building.

The location of Florence Dream Domus is excellent except not the easiest to find while driving. Rooms were lovely and breakfasts were good. Front Desk was very helpful in obtaining museum reservations. We were unknowingly upgraded which was a surprise and cost us more.
