Larkspur, California
Reviewed 14 March 2016

Warm balmy nights in Florence bring us out in the streets until late in the evening. This conveniently located hotel is just steps away from the statue of David. The hotel is clean, reasonably priced with simple rooms. Staff were courteous, helpful and respectful. Centrally located to sights, the square and cafes serving perfect coffee. I would stay here again.

A three minute walk to Duomo, hotel was super clean and rooms were great! A little small, but to be expected in Italy and in the city. Wifi was good. Front desk staff was extremely friendly and all spoke english. Felt very safe getting in an out of the building.

The hotel is in a perfect location. Make sure you go to the bar area and out on the terrace - you can see the top of the duomo and it's pretty amazing. The rooms are an adequate size and very clean. Breakfast was decent for a continental. Two cons: 1. No free wifi. We didn't pay for the wifi...

ok, it's not super luxourius, but rooms are clean, and charming. located just a few minutes from cathedral, palazzo medicci, and san lorenzo. but, the reason why i rate it excellent is its roof top terrace, with a wonderful view of the dome of the cathedral. breathtaking

Rooms were nice and classical but the location however was not so good. Its about a 6 minute walk to the Duomo and 15 minutes from the Firenze Station. breakfast was ok but they served late. Everything was dark in the hotel. Too much light conservation.

Stayed here at the end of September. It's clean and the room is nice. Bathroom is large for Europe. If you have any expectation of sleeping however, you better take your own pillow. After a long day of sightseeing you want a comfortable place to sleep and I feel there could be some improvement there. Breakfast was good. Not a...

A very nice first impression. But as per some of the negative reviews, this hotel could use a little self evaluation. The rooms are nice but small. Although no more than the rest of the E.U. WiFi is way to expensive. ( 10eu/day ) breakfast is typical. The staff could put a little more effort into improving their people skills....

Let me start off with saying that the staff has no character. Our room was located on the second floor but the hall to get to our room was a little dark; better lighting would be great. Didn't care much more the room; it was clean though. Wifi is expensive and breakfast wasn't good. The only good thing is the...

Don't let the name or the outside fool you. Once inside, Hotel California is a wonderfully accomodating hotel. The staff is friendly and very responsive to your requests. The room is a little heavy on the decor, etc. and the furniture is a bit worn, but the mattress is new and comfortable and most of all.... the air conditioning works...

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.
