“Small hotel, huge welcome !!”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

We found this hotel in Lonely Planet and as usual they were spot on. It's not so easy to find but is only 5 mins walk from the Santa Maria Novella Railway station & right around the corner from the Cathedral. The location couldn't be better. There are only 4 rooms, which are small but have everything you need plus the
owner, Elizabetta, can't do enough to help. Definately recommend it.

We've stayed for two nights in July at Relais del Duomo. It has only four rooms and the room that we stayed in was easily the smallest room we've ever stayed in any hotel! Only seven steps from wall to wall! What's more, the room was rather dark even at high noon and when we left the window open, the room smelled from the restaurant below. There are two rooms that face the main street in front of the hotel and seem quite comfortable and spacious but unfortunately ours was not one of them.

On the bright side, the hotel is on an excellent location, only a few steps from the Duomo, the Cathedral of Florence. The buffet breakfast was decent (coffee, croissants, yogurt, cereal, marmelade etc but no hot meals) and the landlady Ms Elisabetta was very kind and helpful.

I enjoyed a brief but very comfortable stay at the Relais del Duomo, aided by the excellent location two minutes from the magnificent Duomo as well as the very friendly and helpful staff (especially the lovely Elisabetta). Would highly recommend anyone travelling to Florence, either as a couple or single, to stay at this small B&B. Guests should be warned, however, that breakfast is only offered from 8.30am, and should not plan to do anything in Florence before 9am. However, Elisabetta very kindly served me breakfast early on the day I had pre-booked to visit the Gallerie dell'Accademia. Overall, a wonderful stay and will return on my next visit to Firenze. Grazie mille.

We had a great stay in this nice B&B. Elisabetta is a very nice and helpful host. Location is very good, just a few steps from the Duomo. Room is big enough for me, and quiet at night. Breakfast is good and there is always juice, coffee and cookies available in the dining room. Highly recommended to anyone looking for high quality B&Bs.

This was the perfect b and b close to the Duomo with the most helpful staff. Elisabetta whoever prepared the delicious breakfasts was very knowledgable when we asked foe suggestions. She was always very helpful and made delicious coffees for the four of us when requested. There was always tea and coffee, fruit and bread available at any time during the day. The rooms were very nice and extremely clean with daily service. We stayed there three nights.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window in the bathroom as one of our rooms had an interior bathroom which was...
