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.

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.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood 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.
