We stayed in this hotel for two nights having high expectations due to the good reviews from tripadvisor. The room we were given for our stay was run down and dirty. It was a few floors up and the window of the room faced the inside glass elevator shaft which is in the middle of the hotel. There were gauge...

Dear Tripadvisor user , thank you very much for your concern but I really think that your feedback is mostly an insult to me ,Roberto Boccacelli Manager of Hotel Borghese Palace since 2009 , with no chance of reply! I regret to inform you that my attitude is completely different from the description you have reported on the review !...

My new husband and I went to Europe for our honeymoon and we instantly fell in love with Florence. I can confidently say that Florence is one of the most awesome, beautiful, magical and romantic places I have ever been to and just when I thought it couldn't get any more awesome ...

A fantastic find close to all the main tourist attractions, yet on a quiet street away from the madding crowds. In close proximity to good value eateries. The lobby and lounge area is certainly very different, with the current exhibition being a little quirky and bright!! Breakfast was substantial; our room (a superior double) was spacious and arty; decent shower...

This hotel definitely did not live up to it's advertising which quite frankly could be considered very misleading. Reception staff were really disinterested and rude - seemed to spend a lot of time on computer looking too busy to be approached. Room was shocking grubby, noisy and bathroom toilet was broken and never fixed we stayed three nights had to...

There was no ac for over a week and they never told us when we checked in. Got bites probably from bed bugs. noisy room as we had to sleep with the windows open. Never even got an apology for the inconvenience and trust me it was extremely hot in May. Only good thing was the breakfast.

Our brief trip to Florence was supposed to be a bit of a treat rounding off a fantastic week in Cento. Our expectations from the hotel's excellent (misrepresenting) website and Trip Advisor were quite high and so you can imagine our shock and horror when we arrived at this somewhat faded, misearble excuse for a 4 star hotel. How on...

Reasonably comfortable & reasonably friendly, however, rooms are small & decor could be questioned as to "Art" or just weird. No lift working for the 3 days of the stay meant a need to improve fitness - heaven knows what they would have done for the disabled & elderly. Compensated by a free bar every evening, which was great when...

Be warned there is little positive to say in this review. On arrival in Florence there was absolutely no help or advice of how to explore this pretty city, there was no help to get our bags to our room except we were pointed in the direction of the lift. The hotel interior is just bizarre and tacky. The metallic...

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.
