We stayed at the Villani for 5 nights, and it's the perfect place to stay in Florence: a charming and pleasantly small, family-run hotel almost a stone’s throw from the Duomo. In fact, if you manage to get a room with the stunning view of the Duomo and the Campanile, you can leave your alarm clock at home, as the...

Our favorite things about Hotel Villani were the walking distance from the S. M. N. train station, the location (next to the Duomo), the view, the service (Erminio), and the comfortable room. Best cappucino in the morning from Erminio. He even helped us make reservations for the Uffizi as we had forgotten. We only stayed here two nights, but we...

My husband and I stayed here last winter. Florence is one of my favorite cities and this little hotel came highly recommended by friends who frequent Florence. This hotel although "no-frills" is amazing because it is located literally steps from the Duomo and a ton of bars, restaurants and shops. The location is so ideal we will never stay anywhere...

Amazing views, best terrace in the city, free wifi, SUPER close to Duomo, shops, and restaurants (and nightlife if you're into that :) ). The staff is AWESOME, Erminio is the best cappucino maker in Florence, and he's super helpful if you just ask! On the fourth floor, with an elevator (which is AMAZING for Italy), and right across the...

A budget hotel that is walking distance from the train station, and strategically located a block from the Duomo, with many restaurants and shops in the surrounding area. We were given a room facing another building even though the hotel did not seem to be even half full; clean though, including the bathroom. Room had basic furnishings which looked dated....

If you want to save some money to spend on all the lovely shops around Florence or purchase a beautiful leather jacket as we did, this is the hotel for you. Erminio was a perfect host, booking a reservation at the Uffizi for us and serving warm croissants with perfectly prepared cappuccino in the morning. The rooms are simple but...

The Hotel was in the heart of Florence, safe enough for walking around late at night. The room was clean and spacious, we could open our room window and look at the massive Duomo, it was so close. The roof top terrace was the best, we took a glass of wine upstairs and sat on the terrace at night with...

Erminio Villani was such a wonderful host. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. It is simple and authentic. Add to your stay a walking tour of Florence with Riccardo Teresi of SunnyTuscany and you will get a true feel for this wonderful city.

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.
