    Really disappointed by this place. I know Florence is expensive but rooms were cramped and dingy and up three steep flights of stairs with no lift. Good air con, fridge in room and owner helpful but I am afraid I would not book here again

    If you're on a budget, this hotel is perfect. You can't get a better location for that price: you can see the Duomo from the entrance. The room we got was clean and cleaned everyday. The shower was in the room. We got real towels...More

    Florence is notoriously expensive for hotels, so this one is a steal. However, please read what other posters have said about the steps and luggage (which is what I should have done!). There are 72 steps up a circular stairway and carrying a 50 pound...More

    So close to Duomo! We could see it from our room which was a huge highlight. Room was huge. Bathroom was interesting, our toilet was in our shower but we saw it as quirky. Please be aware the this is a really historical building and...More

    This small, charming, walk-up (72 steps) hotel is simple but clean and perfectly placed near the Duomo and Santa Maria Novella (and the train station). Beautiful historic building with ancient accents (the shutters!), plus mod-cons like good A/C. Some rooms ensuite; those w/o bathroom have...More

    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
