The hotel is located a few steps from the Duomo. Really!!! It is that close! Which is great. But, it was very difficult to find, even with GPS!!! I do not recommend driving there. For me it was an absolute nightmare (though my husband, the driver of the car, thought it was fine!?).

When we eventually found it, we had to wait at least 30 minutes in the street for someone to take the car to a parking garage). And of course when we left, we had to again wait, probably close to an hour, for them to bring the car back to us. As I said, driving is not recommended!!!

The rooms are basic (but clean), which are to be expected for a 2 star hotel, I suppose. The star of the show, however, is the roof terrace. Wow!!!!!! It is magical at night. It feels as if you can touch the duomo. This alone made the stay worthwhile and is responsible for the hotel scoring at least another point or two.

eminio villani's small hotel on the 4th floor of via del oche, 11 in florence is a fantastic place to stay. the views from some rooms are of the duomo unobstructed(!!) and others have great views of the towers and spires leading to the arno river. i have stayed at hotel villani with students many times and it never disappoints us. its old world charm and ultra cleanliness add to the ambience of this outstanding value. erminio consistently serves the BEST cappucino i've ever tasted anywhere. another bonus for travelers who don't speak italian very well is erminio's excellent command of english. the view from the top floor of hotel villani is INCREDIBLE!

Really liked this hotel. The owner was so nice, and yes, the cappuccino is wonderful! The room was very clean and comfortable, and the view from the terrace is breathtaking!

Room Tip: Ask for a terrace room!

We stayed at the Villani for 5 nights, and it's the perfect place to stay in Florence: a charming and pleasantly small, family-run hotel almost a stone’s throw from the Duomo. In fact, if you manage to get a room with the stunning view of the Duomo and the Campanile, you can leave your alarm clock at home, as the 7 AM bells will certainly wake you. A very cool way to wake up!

Even apart from being a block away from the Duomo, the hotel is perfectly located. It's probably no more than a 30 minute walk even to the Oltrarno. And the small streets and lanes near the hotel are perfect for aimlessly wandering.

The innkeeper, Erminio, is wonderful. He makes a perfect cappuccino (or two) in the morning and he’s an invaluable resource for Florence information, gossip, etc.

The hotel itself is nothing fancy, so don’t expect the Ritz or the Four Seasons. The rooms are well-kept and very clean, with typically small European bathrooms. And the elevator/lift to the 4th floor is similarly compact! But it’s all very comfortable and comforting.

If you stay there, you must spend time on the roof deck at sunset, preferably with a bottle of wine and hunks of cheese and bread. You’ll feel very special, up on the roof as the light fades and the church bells ring.

A definite highlight of our trip to Italy.

Our favorite things about Hotel Villani were the walking distance from the S. M. N. train station, the location (next to the Duomo), the view, the service (Erminio), and the comfortable room. Best cappucino in the morning from Erminio. He even helped us make reservations for the Uffizi as we had forgotten. We only stayed here two nights, but we would return for sure. Oh and beware, the bell rings early in the morning and is pretty loud considering you are staying right next to it, but it made us smile and reminded us to get up and go explore Firenze. We can sleep in at home! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Duomo!
