I stayed here with my boy friend in Feb 2016 and was pleasantly surprised by the value we received. The concierge was welcoming and helpful upon arrival, offering us a map and restaurant suggestions. We were only a 3 minute walk from the Duomo and of course therefore, walking distance to all of Florence. The hotel itself was a complementary...

what a great start to our vacation. the staff at the hotel was great. The elevator was broken but they made sure our luggage was carried up 4 floors. Rooms were spacious and breakfast was one of the best of our trip.

Great location, but falling short on many details. Decorated by a designer with high ambitions and low budget, e.g. plastic lounge chairs in the lobby. Breakfast was ok but not great, too. Nothing super awful, we had a great time overall and might even come back to this hotel if nothing else is available. Very friendly staff, which makes up...

I recently stayed at the hotel for a short break in Florence. The hotel is ideally located in this beautiful city. The Duomo is approximately a 5 minute walk away and all the other main attractions 10-15 minutes away. The staff were extremely friendly and polite and made me feel very welcome there. The room, whilst not the largest I've...

Dear Denise, thank you for having been guests at Borghese Palace Art Hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights recently (room 206). Lovely hotel and very attentive reception staff.

Very nice and cosy, clean, helpful and friendly staff, nice little breakfast. Walking distance from pretty much everywhere that's interesting in town. On the down side, the showerhead could have used some maintenance - but it really wasn't all that bad and we didn't bring it to the staffs attention.

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.
