“Al Duomo apartment”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect! Mariagioconda and Guido were very friendly and welcoming.

The apartment is located next to the Duomo, in Florence's city center. We enjoyed an excellent view from our balcony of the church.

Mariagioconda and Guido also provided excellent restaurant recommendations with a helpful map. Also they offered to make reservation for any museum or restaurant for us.

The rates for our stay were very reasonable and well worth it, for the high quality of service and comfort we enjoyed. There is free Wi-Fi internet that had a strong signal for our entire stay too.

For next time in Florence this apartment will be my first choice.

Room Tip: Great vacation apartment, friendly and efficient service with at a reasonable rate!

We staid 3 nights at one of the excellent apartments of "Il Doumo" in Florence. We had a great welcome from the owner and the apartment we get was just amazing! We were very lucky to have a perfect view in the balcony to the Santa Maria Del Fiore Cathedral, so that every breakfast and dinner were a perfect time for admiration of one of the greatest works of the italian renaissance. The owners were every time available and they show us not only the best places to visit around but also the best gelato artigianale italiano! For the next time in Florence... only Il Douomo!

Room Tip: Just ask for available rooms... the best is to call directly

We stayed at the Marzia apartment near the train station and were very happy with the apartment. It is a beautiful apartment; very clean and fresh. It even has a spa bathtub! Everything that we needed was on hand. Mariagioconda met us at the station and walked us to the apartment. She was very helpful and welcoming. The walk to the center of old Florence was 5-10 minutes. This apartment is ideal if you plan to take day trips from Florence!

Stayed in the Beatrice apartment for about a week and were happy enough with the apartment and location. It is pretty much smack bang in the middle of Florence which is great for sightseeing and shopping. However due to this location it can also be quite noisy, during the day you can easily hear street noise and loud music/base from the nearby shops and bars; after midnight it did get quieter only to start up again at 6am. The apartment is well equipped in terms of appliances such as dishwasher, stove-top, fridge, washing machine etc yet was missing basic things like tea towels ( it also would have been nice to have more than one bowl).. The wifi device we were given did not work at first but the hosts happily replaced the modem for us; only to have it run out of data a couple of days later. The hosts were very friendly and provided us with recommendations on where to eat/visit. Overall we were happy enough but I would probably look elsewhere for a quieter location on our next visit.

Stayed at Al Duomo Hotel for two days in June. Florence is a small city but this hotel is perfectly located. Only about a 5 minute walk from the Train/Bus station and only 3 blocks from the center of Florence (Al Duomo). Room was good size and air conditioned. The 6th floor terrace has a great view of Al Duomo. Breakfast is served on the terrace and wine is available at night. Staff was helpful. Did not give 5 stars becasue the breakfast was not the best. You can easily walk everywhere in Florence without issue. If shopping is your thing, you'll be a fan of Florence. LOTS of great restaurants everywhere throughout the city. All the wine we had at any location was great. Would repeat.

We stayed in the Beatrice apartment on the first floor. It is a beautiful, well-equipped apartment in an excellent location. The owners, Mariagioconda and Guido, were very friendly and helpful. Mariagioconda gave us lots of information and recommendations about what to see and where to eat in Florence. Even though we weren’t staying in the B & B part of the building, we were invited up for breakfast (Guido makes great cappuccinos) and taken onto the roof to view the Duomo. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

We didn't stay in the alduomo BandB but in the self-catering apartment owned by the same couple a few minutes walk away. I would highly recommend this. The apartment has a little terrace which has the most astonishing unobstructed close-up view of the cathedral dome.This is impressive during the day but magical at night when the dome is floodlit. I found myself getting up occasionally just to check it was still there.

The apartment is on the top floor of a restored old building, with a lift to the third floor and then maybe 15 further steps up to the top. it is very well-equipped, with a full kitchen, so that you are not beholden to the city restaurants and can live like a real local for a few days. There is a quite famous grocery one minute away and the main city food market is maybe 10 minutes' walk.

In February the apartment was beatifully warm and a welcome haven after all the art. The hostess and host were great. Despite being in the heart of the city there was no noise.
