Really disappointed by this place. I know Florence is expensive but rooms were cramped and dingy and up three steep flights of stairs with no lift.
Good air con, fridge in room and owner helpful but I am afraid I would not book here again
If you're on a budget, this hotel is perfect. You can't get a better location for that price: you can see the Duomo from the entrance. The room we got was clean and cleaned everyday. The shower was in the room. We got real towels...More

This small, charming, walk-up (72 steps) hotel is simple but clean and perfectly placed near the Duomo and Santa Maria Novella (and the train station). Beautiful historic building with ancient accents (the shutters!), plus mod-cons like good A/C. Some rooms ensuite; those w/o bathroom have...More
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.
