    Frustrating hotel... everything is extra. The a/c is controlled from the front desk, the WiFi is 10€ a day, the breakfast was awful. I don't expect much in the summer but a cool room and free WiFi (an essential service) for $150/night is a no...More

    The location is excellent and literally only 3 minutes walk from the Duomo. It's convenience and value has lifted the rating as the hotel has minimal facilities although what they had was more than satisfactory for a couple of nights. Highly recommended!!

    Rooms are clean and fairly comfortable. Breakfast is mediocre, so go elsewhere for something delicious. If your prime desire is to be close to the Duomo, restaurants and shopping, then this hotel is for you. Don't expect luxury, but who goes to Florence to spend...More

    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
