“Perfect”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Spending two nights in this place was charming to me. The most I like that the place saves its historical identity. I went back to live in a century which I was not born in. The building is simply amazing. The old stairs, traditional Italian furniture and decoration are great. The location is perfect with a very nice view to the Cathedral and the squre. Close to everything even station which needs only short walk. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Great breakfast and service. The place made my holiday. I strongly recommend it for those want to have something different.

Amazing...I think that is the wonly word that can do this place justice. When you look out the window and stare out into the piazza and look up at the amazing cathedral while crowds of people buzz around below you...I did have to actually pinch myself to convince myself that this was real! This B&B has a lot more to offer than the view though. The rooms are rustic and very authentic. Beds are comfy and the bathroom is just what you need for a short stay. I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere so central in my life and for the sights of Florence you literally just have to walk out of the door with most attractions being a maximum ten minute walk away at the furthest!
The breakfast was amazing and served in your room each morning..so good we took a picture! Staff were very friendly and helpful despite having a couple of arrivals at the same time we arrived. All in all an amazing experience...being woken up by the bells each morning was the most amazing alarm call I have ever had!

Room Tip: Get a room at the front of the property for views of the cathedral and across the piazza.

We recently stayed 2 nights at the A Florence View Bed and Breakfast in Florence. The location was exceptional - within walking distance from so much in Florence and with a great view of the Cathedral/Duomo. We were greeted upon check-in by Nicolo who was very friendly, thoroughly explained the wi-fi, area attractions and answered our questions. Through the stay, we interacted with Guiliana who was very gracious, prepared a lovely breakfast in our room and even made museum reservations for us at the Accademia. The room rates were reasonable and I would happily stay here again!

This was our first trip to Florence and we couldnt have wanted a better location to stay.The B&B is right on the Cathedral square about 10 minutes walk from the train station.The family who run it couldnt have been nicer or more helpful.The room was spotless and lovely and cool.
What ever you do make sure you climb up to the top of the Duomo.Dont be put off by the 483 steps!,there are places to stop and catch your breath and when you reach the top the view is amazing and worth every step.
A fantastic place to stay in this beautiful city.

Il Duomo was right outside our window! Easy to find everything you want to see from this location. Room was good sized but on third floor with no elevator. Very clean with light breakfast served in the room. I would recommend staying here.

We have stayed in that hotel for 3 nights while in vacation in Florence. This charming family owned place is litteraly on the Piazza del Duomo and 10 minutes walk from the train station. You can not have better location in Florence, you are located in the middle of everything and 30 seconds walk from the Cathedral's entrance!!! Not only the location is perfect, but the owners are very friendly and helpful. They helped us book day trips and excursions, gave us a piece of History and brought us breakfast in our room every morning... The room are charming and kept some original paintings on the wall which are more than 100 years old. The sleep was very comfortable. The only minor problem is that our room was above a place (Lounge bar, restaurant ) which played music and had a loud crowd until 2-3 in the morning, so if you are noise sensitive these rooms might not be an option, but they also have rooms on the second floor, and facing away from the Piazza... Overall, our stay was perfect and we would for sure go back there if we go again in Florence. The quality for the price was exceptional...
