I chose this hotel amongst other options of the same tier in Florence because the double rooms in the pictures had wooden beams in the ceiling. I got no beams. I also got no views at all. Still the room was ok. And the location is difficult to top. I would chose it again by location only. Mine was a...

We spent 4 days in March and you find yourself in an elegantly decorated hotel door to door to Gucci in the best part of Firenze's city centre. Extremely nice and helpful receptionists. Good breakfast and free wifi. Room mate hotels are a must!

Fantastic location and the staff were very helpful and friendly.. Excellent breakfast in a relaxed and quiet dining room.

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.
