It's hard to complain when you're only paying $50/night for such a great location, but .... If you get that single room on the street, walk away. You will not sleep until 3am. It's like bourbon street out there. When a room opened up on the garden side, they kindly moved me to that. The hostal is on the 2nd... More

The staff at Orchidea were the kindest we'd come across, so helpful with info about the city and in email about arrival beforehand. The rooms were clean and overlooked the street which was amazing. It was noisy at night but we expected that being central Florence (4 mins away from Duomo) and the hotel provides earplugs! The location and staff... More

A beautiful, perfectly located, cozy and romantic hotel I regret I only spent 1 night in... I definitely recommend this hotel, with its welcoming staff, clean and gracefully decorated rooms, the shared bathrooms I first thought would bother me but it was always perfectly clean and available. Bref ... great experience!

Stayed here for two nights in January. Te room was small but cozy and warm with a view over a courtyard. The location made site seeing around Florence very easy. The staff was very nice and non intrusive. Shared bathrooms were fine and I don't recall having to wait for them once. Would stay here again.

This is a nice guest house, on a fairly noisy street: earplugs are provided in the rooms, and you'll probably need them! The noise is the only downside, really: my reasonably priced, very clean single room in fact contained a three-quarter bed - a nice surprise - and had its own washbasin. (The bathroom was shared with just a couple... More

I stayed here for one night in February. The room was very comfortable, clean and cozy. The only thing I want to point out is that there is a shared toilet. I got into Florence pretty late and it worked out well for me. Room was great for the price. Location is great and short walk to the Duomo.

This hotel is centrally located in Florence. It was so easy to come in and out of the hotel in my travels around the city. The room was large and comfortable and clean. There was a very low key atmosphere around the hotel which made this an enjoyable place to stay. The owner was pleasant to speak with and was... More

We stayed here in the summer of last year and it was great! The hotel is right in the heart of the city but still quiet enough to warrant a peaceful stay. Our window faced the street but that was not a problem. There are only a handful of rooms and it has a certain rustic charm to it. The... More

I stayed here for two nights by myself (in a single room) and one night with my husband (in a double -or bigger- room) while on a visit to Florence. I took earlier advice and requested a room near the courtyard- I would definitely recommend this! the rooms were simply furnished but functional, and the bathroom was just fine, as... More

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.
