First of all, the location is FANTASTIC- literally 10 steps away from the Duomo. The people at the front desk were extremely accommodating (our flight to Florence was 6 hours late and they stayed there to let us check in late- around 11:30pm). They serve breakfast in bed every morning- delicious croissants and fresh-pressed grapefruit juice. The room was extremely...

We have been to Florence 3 times and this was by far and away the best location and best value hotel we have stayed in. Situated between the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio you cannot go wrong. The staff was extremely helpful, even helping us carry our luggage up the stairs. The rooms were large and comfortable. Breakfast was served...

This was definitely one of my favorite stays in Italy. The place is so charming. The room was very large. Had a kettle and small fridge. Lovely bath with deep jetted tub. Two very large windows with views of the Duomo. Very close to everything!!! Wonderful breakfast brought to your room every morning. Perfect!!

Couldn't ask for a better location, the staff were helpful and friendly, and our room was spacious and charming with high ceilings and antique furniture. The view of the Duomo from our window was great. Loved it!

La Residenza is a charming B&B rigtht around the cormer from the rear of the Duomo. The location is super, minutes walking to most of the popular sites in Florence, and easy to find if you happen to be navigating by car as well. The rooms are spacious, and amply decorated. The front facing rooms have nice street views with...

This is our 7th stay at La Residenza del Proconsolo and will continue to be the only place we stay in Florence! First-Mariano is a great host and always wonderful during the booking process. I do recommend that if you can pay extra for one of the larger rooms-it is well worth it and why we rate it the highest...

This is a great central location in Florence and the owner is a wonderful lady. I would've rated the stay excellent but for both nights we were there the shower handle kept coming off as the screw holding it in place was missing, making taking a shower or adjusting the water temperature very difficult. Had I not been there to...

This ended up being the weakest of our Italy lodgings--which isn't to say that it's a bad place, just that there are probably better options out there. The B and B is *right* around the corner from the Duomo, and one of it's selling points is that some rooms have views and balconies. But not ours. In fact, it might...

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.
