“The perfect B&B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Not only is the location great, in the middle of the centre of Florence, but the B&B itself is also super clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is good for Italian standards, with enough choice and good coffee! In addition, even though the B&B is next to the Duomo, we had no problems with (street) noise.
The highlight of our stay there was actually Elizabetta, who is already ready to answer any questions you may have, give directions and recommendations. A very warm and welcoming person, who made a great difference to our fantastic stay in Florence!

We'll be coming back here for sure.

Fantastic Location second to none!! lovely rooms very clean and excellent shower pressure. Very nice and helpfull staff/owners and very efficient with our booking (we were not expecting it but we even got a discount for paying by cash upon check out).
Breakfast was very nice, tea and coffee making facilities were available to us at all times.
I am always hesitant about making bookings online that are not through a well known broker, but we had no problems what so ever and I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone and everyone. Thank you Relais del Duomo for making our stay in Florence just that much better.

Room Tip: we had two rooms booked both were very nice. I think all rooms are good but you can see them all on...

I recently stayed at the Relais del Duomo on a 3 night break to Florence. This bed & breakfast was ideal and not to expensive. It is centrally located, just a stones throw from the Duomo. The accommodation was clean. Elizabetta was very welcoming and reccommended various authentic Italian restaurants for our evening meal which were very resonably priced. Florence is a beautiful city with plenty to see and do. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

We really appreciated the kindness and thoughtfulness of Elizabetta. She was very knowledgeable and helpful and made our stay warm and welcoming.

The owner's attitude to the safety of electrical equipment was disturbing.

Having never visited Florence before and travelling on my own to meet friends in the city I booked this intimate B&B hotel due to its location and quaint family-run nature. I was not dissapointed and loved my stay.
Elisabetta could not have been more helpful- contacting me in advance so she could ensure she was in to meet me upon arrival, emailing directions to ensure I found my way from the station and pointing out the best sites and routes on a handy map.
Even once I had found my way and needed less help she was available to book the Uffizi to jump the queues and to make a hearty breakfast before each new day out and about.
A lovely place to stay all round.

Small but very cozy, clean and comfortable hotel just near Duomo. very convenient for sightseeing and shopping. Elisabetta (the representative of the hotels owner) met us very y warm despite our late arrival and helped a lot with restaurants booking during our stay. I will advise the hotel to all my friends. Really great value for money.
