Relais Accademia is a good value for money B & B. It´s very centrally located within a block of the accademia and two of the duomo, visible at the end of the street. It is only staffed onsite a few hours of the day, so be mindful of check in times. Breakfast comes in the form of a voucher to... More

In bullet points: 1) LOCATION - Phenomenal. Step outside the hotel, turn your head to the right and the view at the end of the street, two minutes away is THE DUOMO! Two minutes in the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in late September and received a very friendly welcome from Federico. He upgraded us to the larger room with a terrace and en-suite which was excellent (after checking out we did store our luggage in a smaller room which uses a bathroom along the hall - both were clean and of a high standard). A... More

This great little hotel was fantastically situated on the Via Ricasoli which runs between the Galleria DellAccademia and the Duomo.Our room was clean, spacious,tastefully decorated and airy. However it was on the front of the building which meant noise until around 11.30pm and then silence. Next time we visit I will arrange a room at the rear, all of which... More

We stayed here in early April and were very pleased with our choice. Despite being right in the middle of all the action, the room was very quiet and comfortable. We stayed in the larger suite with the attached terrace, which was great for relaxing after a day of sight-seeing. The room was spacious, clean, bright and well-appointed, in an... More

This tiny hotel in the very heart of Florence offers excellent value for money. Your sightseeing tour beggins right after the door. The owner is very hospitable and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable.

This B&B offers a great location at a reasonable price. It’s literally just down the street from the Duomo which looms large as soon as you set foot out side the front door. It only takes ten minutes to stroll from the accommodation, past the Duomo, down to and through the Piazza Della Signoria, past the Uffizi to the Ponte... More

Relais Accademia was a wonderful intimate place to stay in the heart of Florence. The manager was gracious and very helpful.

We visit Europe regularly and this accomodation is on the of the best we have had. It is quite, clean and well located. Federico is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast at the nearby cafe is very fresh and delicious. We will be recommending this B&B to our family and friends.

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.
