This hotel is in a very good location and the staff are pleasant. That's all I can say on a positive note. It's dark, uninviting and lacks atmosphere in the public areas. The bedrooms are trying to be artistic and different but it doesn't work - style over substance I would say, it all looks a bit tacky. Breakfast is...

This hotel is great if you want a central base close to all the major sights of Florence. Friendly, helpful staff, clean an tidy rooms (The one we had was small, but very well equipped and ideal for the three nights we stayed) Breakfast was really good, great variety and superb coffee as you'd expect in Italy! One drawback was...

This is a great location and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The hotel is lovely but has one serious drawback. My room was at the back of the hotel facing via Dell' Agnolo. There is an after-hours bar/pub that's not related to the hotel, that spills onto the street between 11 pm and 6 am, at least on...

Our 4 night holiday to Florence was immeasurably helped by this artistically themed hotel's close location to nearly every place we wished to go. Service was very, very friendly. Our room was very, very spacious. Decor throughout the hotel was a dark, baroque theme. We would have given 5 stars were it not for the fact that the bar wasn't...

My wife and I stayed at the Borghese for 8 nights and had a very enjoyable time in this ideally placed hotel. The staff were uniformly pleasant, always welcoming and helpful (Sabrina, in charge of breakfast, was expecially attentive) and we would recommend it to anyone who wants a base for exploring all that Florence has to offer.

We usually stay at 'chain' hotels like Westin and Marriott, but we found this hotel had a much better rate for 3 people sharing 1 room. The room had a giant king bed and a surprisingly comfortable 'chaise' bed for the 3rd person. I slept on it and couldn't believe how comfortable it was since it looked sorta small at...

This hotel is in a really great location for visiting Florence however I would advise getting a taxi from the train station when you have luggage. The hotel itself is pretty good and did have a bar however it was closed the whole time we were there which was disappointing. The gym was ok and the breakfast good

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.
