The B&B is a little tricky to find, but the rental office staff are very helpful. The office is in a different location than the actual B&B, but it's a short walk. The room is right in the center of town, a great location for all site seeing!
Clean , spacious and inviting. there is no breakfast on-site, but the cafe that they give you food cards to , is close by. Plus you get alot of food. Pastries and Sandwiches, so your lunch for the day is covered too! Great place to stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be in the middle of all the action in Florence.

This was our 3rd visit to beautiful Florence and our 2nd stay at La Dimora del Centro. We have found it to be in the most perfect location to explore the beauty of the old town of Florence. It is only a few minutes from the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria and a 15 minute walk from the main train station Santa Maria Novella (although I suggest a taxi if you have large suitcases). We have stayed in the beautifully appointed purple room and green room - which both look over the Piazza della Repubblica and the dome of the Duomo. There is a lot of activity and noise in the piazza - however the double glazed windows block out most of the noise. We have sometimes heard faint sounds of some of the buskers in the piazza late at night - but they have been so good that I have even opened the window to hear them properly. We enjoyed the breakfast at the nearby cafe, Robiglio, which provides orange juice, cappuccino, sandwich and 2 pastries. The B&B also has a great communal kitchen with coffee and tea making facilities and a supply of biscotti. Some small disadvantages - it is on the 4th floor (but there is a lift) and you need to check in at another B&B (which is only 5 minutes walk away). It is also a bit pricey (we paid 160 Euros per night) - but of course you get what you pay for!! We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I spent three nights in Florence and were drawn to the La Dimora del Centro due to the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. We will add our raves to others. The location is outstanding and pulls you into the vibe of Florence day and night life. We requested and got the Purple a Room which oversees the main square (I could see the Duomo from my pillow!). It was very clean and comfortable with a modern bathroom (best shower in Italy!). Although it's lively at night in the square, the room was quiet enough for sleep.
You're within blocks of everything in Florence including Porcellino, who's nose you will touch thereby committing a return trip to Florence. When you do, you'll want to stay here!
PS, Roberta sets a welcoming tone

We were in Florence for a couple of days only, the location was great. We were walking distances from the train and central to everything. The duomo we can see right out of our windows. The only downfall was the nightlife in the evening. If you do not like the noise from the restaurants, bars, asked for room in the back.

The location is absolutely perfect. A-couple-of-minutes-walk to Duomo so you don't have to be scared at night. It can get a little spooky around it at dark. A few steps from Piazza della Signoria so you don't have crowds under your window all day and night. Two minutes to Ponte Vecchio and the Uffici so you can go whenever and a stone's throw to Oltrarno and the hip hang-outs and might I add, the best gelato in town. The big designer shops are around the corner and Santa Maria Novella is a short walk away but also at a safe distance. You know how train stations are at night. Santa Croce is another five minutes. It's great having everything within your reach. The tea and coffee-making facilities in the kitchen are also a bonus. The bed is excellent and super comfortable. The arrangement with Robiglio for breakfast was also nice with no limit on time. We could eat breakfast whenever we wanted and not rush out of the room early in the morning as is the rule with hotels.
On the downside, we had only one key so for an entire week we were like siamese twins. I wanted to hit the shops but my husband wanted to have a shower and rest a little. Not possible when we had only one key. I wanted to sleep but he wanted to go out and take some night shots with his camera. None doing. No key in the room means no electricity and if you go out without it you cannot come back in. It's not like you can ring the bell and someone will let you in. So we were inseparable.
The bathroom also has a few issues. The lighting is not good. I'm not talking about it being strong enough, I'm saying it is wrong. We understood how wrong when I tried to put on make-up and my husband tried to shave. It made an easy, everyday habit difficult. In addition, there's no surface to put stuff except for a small glass shelf under the mirror. And as there's only one mirror with the possibility to leave a make-up kit or whatever in the bathroom, I couldn't get ready while my husband shaved. One had to wait for the other to finish and that caused some grumpiness. It kept us tidy though. We had to put back everything in the vanity case once used. Couldn't clutter. The bathroom is small and it's understandable for an old building but the problem could be helped if there was a shelf by the big mirror next to the door and if the light above it didn't go out every 90 seconds.
