We stayed here for 10 days in April 2017. We loved the location with a view of the Duomo from our window. It was spacious, had a nice kitchen with a dishwasher and a washer/dryer combo. (bring Tide pods) Our room had a king sized bed that was very comfortable. It also had a sofa sleeper in the same room....

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. AVOID. We booked First of Florence on the 6th March 2017, we meant to book the 3 day break from the 14th-17th April however a mistake was made and we accidentally booked the 14th-17th of March. A month early. Immediately we recognised our mistake and tried to contact booking.com as we booked through them and First of...

Florence is not a cheap place to stay. Sure, you can find basic, economical accommodation, but it still tends to be expensive given how this city is such a major tourist attraction. So instead, we decided to bite the bullet, pay a little bit more than a standard room in an overpriced hotel, and rented an apartment at this venue....

The space and amenities at this residence are incredible. We had one of the smaller rooms (i Medici) and it consisted of a kitchenette - complete with washer./dryer, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher, a sitting area with a sofa bed, a double bed and a nice size bathroom. There are also various groceries included. The free wi-fi worked well. The location...

WE stayed at the First of Florence in October 2016. It was a lovely apartment with a large kitchen and separate bedroom/lounge, and huge bathroom. We stayed in the apartment next to the receptionist. The building/apartments are very safe, as you need a key to get in the huge front door, then another key to open the apartment on the...

It is a guest house with hotel amenities, which means it is located at a mixed building with apartments, law offices, etc; and the lovely receptionists leave at night but you can call the administration at any time. That being said, the location is wonderful, 5 or 7 blocks away from the mercato centrale, 3 from la Accademia, 3 from...

Very nice room, for 2/3 people, very high ceilings with frescoes, large apartment, looked newly renovated and can't fault. No English TV channels, walk in shower. Good service, good location, 10-15 minutes walk to most locations. Fruit basket in fridge. Best place we stayed for our 3 week Italy trip. Plenty of restaurants and shops in walking distance.

Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. Downstairs was a spacious lounge, dining and kitchenette area. Window that opened on to the street. Didn't use the kitchen much but the in room washer/dryer was really convenient. (still no iron though - not sure what Italian hotels have against Irons). Upstairs there were 2 bedrooms and...

Stayed for two nights at a nice apartment with two adult children. Interior is very in the superior room, modern, all facilities you can think of. Dimmer in light, dishwasher, TV, air conditioning, fancy bath. Breakfast across the street at OK Cafe is "OK" but add some more European / American breakfast to it as its Italian style breakfast. Very...

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
