Well run, friendly, clean organized hotel slap bang in the heart of Florence. We stayed in the top floor suite which was just fab and really romantic. The staff were all very nice and helpful and the entire experience turned out to be a very pleasant one. Would recommend this structure to anyone. Good quality for the price.

This hotel is in a very central location with a very friendly staff. Special thanks to Alessandra and Sylvia. The wifi was strong and the room and washroom spacious and strikingly decorated. Breakfast service was exemplary and the selection broad in a tastefully decorated lounge. Lighting levels were very low everywhere and the bathroom water pressure was startlingly erratic. The...

Very friendly from check-in to check-out, especially the gentleman whoo looks after breakfast (which is very nice and served until midday so great for brunch also). Good location, easy walking distance to Florence attractions. Downsides : views from the rooms not great, a 2-storey climb up to reception (although help available), and breakfast room sometimes full between 9am and 10am.

We enjoyed this hotel very much. Decor and architecture a little quirky, but it did give the hotel an arty feel.

Minute i walk into my room, i loved this hotel. It felt warm, spacious like coming home. The location was perfect as it had all the rights shops nearby. Breakfast was amazing and there was lots of choice and available until 12 if you wanted a sleep in. My new favourite in Florence. thanks for the memories.

Loved: my adorable tiny room felt lux, breakfast (included) was delightful, location could not be better, felt very special, not too many guests. Not loved: Precious little not to love here. It's a little exxy but Florence always is, and it's up some stairs which is not ideal for everyone.

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.
