    We could step out of the hotel and see the Duomo!!! The rooms were clean and lovely. Fantastic breakfast!!! Great location as we could walk to everything, including the Ponte Vechio, Duomo and train station.

    Great location but pretty funky as a hotel. The food provided for breakfast was marginal, rooms old and clean but not updated what so ever. Some of the front desk workers were very good but some were less than attentive

    The location is good, but there is a lot that needs some attention. There were holes in my sheets. The bed is is like sleeping on the floor. It was a maze to find my room, I had to have a custodian show me the...More

    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

    Hello, My parents are traveling to Florence for four days (21-25/09/2015). My father crippled, walking on the prosthesis. In the evening, he takes the prosthesis and mobility in the room using a wheelchair. Do you have hotel rooms for the disabled? Is there room enough space to reach from the bed to the bathroom or the bathroom? Is there an elevator in the hotel? Or someone could help him get the wheelchair into the room at the time of arrival to the hotel? Thank you very much for your help.
