We stayed for two nights in Florence in June, before travelling down to the Amalfi coast. Being on a budget we chose hotel Bavaria because it had a central location which meant we could walk everywhere. It certainly was central being situated next to the Duomo, which is one of the main attractions in Florence. However, the hotel was close...

I was surprised that there were no elevators to go up three very long flights of stairs, so we had to drag our suitcases all the way up, and that was not fun. An elevator would have been nice, but of course, this is a very old building, so it comes with the territory. Our room was very basic and...

Cannot complain about this place. The room was big and adequate and the location is spectacular. About a minute from Il Duomo. In Florence, you want a place to sleep and go to the bathroom if you are like us...and this hotel is just fine. Cheap, clean, friendly staff, nice little breakfast. I would do it again. If you can...

Hotel Bavaria is a small family-run business, located in the heart of Florence. The owners went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, well-informed and ready for a wonderful stay in Florence. The room was clean, the shared bathroom was a little walk down the hall, but convenient enough, and overall, the place felt safe.

The hotel is located only 5 minutes away from the Duomo and about 20 minutes from the train station and it's situated on the second floor of a very large building. Which means, you have to climb at least 4 flight of stairs (I climbed an extra flight as our room were upstairs) The staff were polite, courteous and friendly....

Hotel Bavaria's top features are its location, between Basilica Santa Maria del Fiori and river Arno, close to the main attractions and to the shops, its staff, a group of very nice and helpful people, and its price. There are a few flights of stairs till the hotel, so be ready for some luggage carrying. The room itself was large...

Just as what everyone else said - terrific, helpful staff. My friends and I had long trips and arrived late between 2 - 3:30 am. (the front desk is scheduled to close at 1 am) Staff was happy to help. We also arrived by car - not a good idea in central Florence where you can't get in without permit....

Central, clean, rustic, big (huge really) rooms and pleasant staff right next to the main tourist attractions for a ludicrously low price. Good stuff!

Me and my boyfriend spend here 6 nights. It's really lovely and cosy place to stay, with beautiful architecture. Standard in that price is ok, it's clean, breakfasts were small (depends what you like) - coffee, cereal, jam, roll. You can not expect to have a very high standard for that price. It' very close to all monuments, restaurants...you can...

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.
