“Very good hotel, excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

Hotel Duomo is across the road from The Duomo (Cathedral), right in the centre of Florence, so it gets top marks for location. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the room was modern, very clean, and reasonably big. The bathroom was also a decent size. The website and hotel information pack indicate that wi-fi is charged at an hourly rate, however, it was free but not without problems. Using an iPhone, I had to shut the phone down regularly to reconnect to their server, otherwise it was fine. The hotel seems to cater for a mature traveller, so no late-night conversations or noise disturbed us, but be prepared to be woken from your slumber at 7 am each morning by the Duomo bells! The ancient lift was a lovely touch, reminiscent of old spy movies!

Room Tip: Room 44 is at the end of the corridor with a view of the Duomo.

This is our 3rd stay at the Hotel Duomo in Florence, Italy. The location is absolutely perfect!! It is right across the street from the famous Duomo Cathedral - so is easy to locate if you should get lost.....just look up and head in that general direction!! The hotel is also close to wonderful restaurants and great shopping. Our room was comfortable and the hotel staff was most helpful. It was so hot when we were there this past September so we really appreciated that the rooms were air-conditioned. We have also stayed at the Hotel Duomo in November when we were delighted to find our rooms warm and cozy. I would certainly recommend this hotel and should we be fortunate to return to Florence a 4th time, we will most certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If tolling bells are not your thing - do not stay in the corner room as the bells are right outside...

This hotel is in the middle of the tourist hub in Florence. You can wander to your hearts content about the amazing old city. There is an unending supply of great restaurants on the doorstep. It is about 2 minutes walk from the train station; which is where most of the tour buses leave from also.

The owner is lovely, and very helpful. Breakfast was great. There is free wi fi.

Room Tip: I had a great room looking over the square + Duomo = 44.

This hotel was okay, it served a purpose and was a decent price.

The manager was very rude. On arrival at reception, my partner and I waited for 15 minutes (no exaggeration, it was awkward) for him to have a long phone call with an agent. We just hung around as he waffled on. I wouldn't have minded waiting, if he apologised for keeping us waiting. He didn't. He then told us that we would have to move rooms after one night (we were staying for three).

Anyway, the first room was aparently "superior". It was okay, large size, sofa, clean bathroom.

The second room on the top floor was a funky shape - but you could hear everything in the room next door. I mean whole conversations, using the toilet and showering. It was embarrassing to hear! We did get a free bottle of wine for the annoyance of moving, which was nice. But they really need to sound proof those rooms.

Needs English speaking tv channels eg BBC News. The whole point of Sky, no?

Great location though, short walk to the centre and sam Lorenzo Bascillica. Breakfast was a bit gross and cheap, but the eggs and coffee were appreciated.

Room Tip: NOT the top floor rooms! The walls are paper-thin.

The owner and staff at this hotel are incredibly friendly and helpful and the room was great. We came to Florence without a hotel reservation and ended up staying at another hotel on the other side of the Duomo the first night we were there. That evening my boyfriend had to go to the hospital outside of the city center and we knew very little Italian. We had already booked Hotel Duomo for the next couple nights and needed some help to navigate to the hospital. The woman at the front desk was nice enough to call us a cab and help us get to the hospital which would have been extremely difficult without her help. When we actually stayed in the hotel we found that all the staff were very helpful, the room was great and included a balcony that looked had a great view of the Duomo and the breakfast room was literally across the street from it. I would stay here again without question.
