In all fairness the hotel itself is ok and the location is great. The beds are hard, the breakfast is meager and minimal at best, the coffee is always burnt and the bells at the chapel NEVER stop. And...the one thing that cheesed me the most is the the minimal breakfast ( a couple of pastries, some under cooked boiled...

We had a 3-night stay in this lovely, family-run hotel. The hotel is very close to the duomo (maybe 2-minutes to walk). The railway station is around a 10-15 minute walk and the Ponte Vecchio a similar distance. There is lift/elevator access to the upper floors as well as a wide stone staircase. From memory, I'm sure the owner said...

Generally, I believe that hotels in Florence are overpriced in comparison to the rest of Italy, this hotel is not an exception but for Florence it is not too bad in terms of price. This small, family run, hotel is very centrally located on a side street about 20% of the way between the Duomo and the Piazza dells Signoria....

The Hotel Benivieni was a great place to stay. We were close to everything we wanted to see, and right by the Duomo. The hotel was clean and the price was reasonable. The owners of the hotel were very friendly and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed talking to them. We could walk everywhere from there and it had many wonderful...

First let me start off with the positives. This hotel without a doubt is in the best location in the whole city. Most people who visit Florence come to see the massive duomo. This hotel is literally a block from the duomo. Its a 2 minute walk!!! There couldnt have been a better location for me to stay before visiting...

On the spur of the moment we decided to go to Florence for 2 nights & found this small family run hotel with an amazing location. Price at the beginning of September was 99 Euros per room plus city tax. It was very clean and basic, small bathroom (shower) and large bedroom. We had a car and paid 35 euros...

You really can't beat this place. We were a few feet from the Duomo, and really felt we were in the heart of the city. Great value. We stayed in a room with 4 single beds -- great for a traveling group like ours -- and the price was terrific. Everything was comfortable if not luxurious, and the staff was...

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.
