Borghese Palace Art Hotel was overall a top choice for our stay in Florence. Centrally located within minutes of the Duomo and easy to access. The staff were incredible, always helpful, professional and willing to chat. The hammam was a wonderful bonus, beautifully set out and well implemented. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, though would have benefited from a few...

Great location everything within walking distance. Staff friendly and helpful. Room 308 spacious, comfortable bed, requested extra pillows after first night as the ones provided where quite flat. Bathroom clean but shower cubicle very small. Shower head in need of descaling, impossible to regulate water temperature so either too cold or very hot! No hot water in the sink and...

The hotel is located in the old quarter of Florence, close to all the wonderful attractions. Although rooms a fairly small, the facilities are quirky and clean. The reception and breakfast staff are very friendly and supportive. Special mention for Theresa on reception who was fantastic.

Great hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Nice extensive buffet breakfast. No hot water for shower though. We liked most of the art and furniture as it is an 'art' hotel. Head in glass display in foyer hideous though! Overall nice stay and would recommend

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.
