This hotel is centrally located in Florence. It was so easy to come in and out of the hotel in my travels around the city. The room was large and comfortable and clean. There was a very low key atmosphere around the hotel which made this an enjoyable place to stay. The owner was pleasant to speak with and was...

We stayed here in the summer of last year and it was great! The hotel is right in the heart of the city but still quiet enough to warrant a peaceful stay. Our window faced the street but that was not a problem. There are only a handful of rooms and it has a certain rustic charm to it. The...

I stayed here for two nights by myself (in a single room) and one night with my husband (in a double -or bigger- room) while on a visit to Florence. I took earlier advice and requested a room near the courtyard- I would definitely recommend this! the rooms were simply furnished but functional, and the bathroom was just fine, as...

It is the best possible placement in Florence with easy access to everything, however, it is hard to find. It is on the first floor of a building with no signs expect the name of it on the doorbell (there is a tourist info shop down the road from it though so we asked them). We didn't know it would...

We stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Orchidea. The hotel is very secure and very close to restaurants, bars and shops although there is very little noise from the rooms. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite. We did have to share a bathroom but it was always well stocked, clean, fresh-smelling and available for use. The room was huge...

This is an old-style Pensione, on the second floor of an old building in the heart of the historic centre of Florence, Italy. The bathrooms are shared, so if you are a faint-of-heart traveler, this may not be for you. That being said, in the five days we were there, we had zero problems/issues with bathroom/shower access, and cleanliness was...

Great place - fantastic location. Only thing was that we had a shower - but had to share a toilet with the rest of the residence. Not that big of a deal for us, but for some people it could be. Rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. It was loud at times due to the location...

I paid something like £38 per night, so let's get real anyone who expects a 5 star hotel for that price and at this location. Keep in mind that we are really just paying for somewhere to sleep at in the centre of Florence and you will be fine. For me, this place was pretty much perfect for the money,...

Locanda Orchidea is a great choice if you´re looking for a cheap room right in the center of Florence. It´s just five minutes away from the Duomo and you´ll reach Santa Maria Nouvella´s station in about 15. It´s a charming place, luminous and comfortable. I booked a single shared toilet room but I only had to share it with another...

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.
