B&B Le Stanze del Duomo
Ranked #39 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Great B&B really donwntown Florence (less than 100 m from the Duomo and around 10 min walking from the main train/bus station). Clean and cozy. Brakfast is managed in a bar around the corner. Definetely a great place to stay if you want to visit Florence by walk and without staying in a 5 star hotel.

The staff was very kind. But be aware that being a B&B, if you are checking in late (after 7.30 pm) you need to inform them in advance so that someone will wait for you. After you check-in, of course you are going to have the keys and you can come and go at any time ;)

This B&B has 2 floors. One was completely rennovated few months ago (spring 2013), so the rooms are all very new and comfortable (great bed, very big and nice shower, good wifi reception, tv, etc). The location is perfect. If you are lucky from some of the rooms you can even have a piece of panorama on the Duomo and on the Campanile :)

The breakfast is served in a bar over the corner, so it is not a buffet, but you can have a coffe/cappuccino, a sandwich and a croissant.

We really had a great time there, and we enjoied our staying!

Room Tip: I'd ask for one of the rooms recently rennovated (third floor, if I reccall it right). For examp...

Clean and cute room. Great location. Super value. Quaint. Only issue couldn't change temp on a/c. Otherwise, great stay. Great staff. Stayed in room that is all white washed, very cute. Elevator small so dont bring huge suitcases, haha.

Location is unbeatable. Close to everything and steps away from the Duomo. Rooms are well equipped and comfortable. We had the Beatrice room on the first floor and loved it! Staff very friendly and helpful. They even gave us a free bottle of Prosecco because of a power cut in the building, even though it only lasted an hour or so. Great wifi service.

Because of the location it was noisy at times. This didn't bother us but could be annoying for others. Breakfast in the cafe round the corner was very basic. It was fine but we only had it the first day then decided to get our own.

I'd stay again without a doubt!

The good: excellent location, centrally located for the area; reasonably priced; spacious clean room, the free fruit and tea/coffee in room is a nice touch.
The bad: the A/C cannot keep up as it only turns on only when you come back to your room and put your key in the slot on the wall. The refrigerator is pretty much useless as it does not keep items cold - that one must have its own circuit as it stays on but still does not get below slightly cool temperature setting. My milk spoiled after one day which was a bummer. Also the Internet worked in our room but only near the door and it was slow. The bathroom is OK, not sure why one would put a rain shower in such a cramped place - my hair got wet each time even if I did not want for them to.
The ugly: you get a breakfast ticket for a bar conveniently located nearby the B&B but the breakfast you get is truly not good. you can get a sandwich, pastry and a coffee ( with some substitutions) but the pastries are not good compared to other places and i do not know how this place manages to have such a bad coffee but it does. every day we would buy coffee all over town and it was always good so i simply do not get it. We kept trying various items but we just could not make it work. The owner is super friendly and seems really nice but the pastries and coffee is not good. We ended up going to another coffee place and just having some cold cuts from the grocery store for breakfast.

My Husband and I spent one night at Le Stanze del Duomo in May 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in the first room on the left when you came in and it was spacious, over looking the street with a view of the baptistry down the way. We felt the room was clean and up to date and particularly enjoyed sitting with the window over looking the street open and watching the late-night comings and goings.

We didn't notice an noise problem in the room we stayed in, although because we were up before the sun to the Piazza Michelangelo to photograph the sunrise we missed the street sweepers and maybe the noise.

Overall I'd recommend this B&B to friends staying in Firenze.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apt for two nights a few weeks ago. The apt is really nice with 1 large bedroom with an attached bathroom, but the second room is a little small and the bathroom is right opposite. However, there is a sofa cum bed/ pullout couch in the living area, so this place was perfect for 4 adults and 2 kids. It is literally a stones throw away from the duomo and a 5 minute walk from the academia. Great location!

Cramped lift - The A/C wasn't working in the first room we stayed in - We were then transferred into well at first looked like a very nice room but it only took us ten minutes to realise it was falling apart. The towel rail came off the wall and hit the toilet while trying to get a towel. The hinges of the ladder were loosening and so were the hooks on the chairs. - We were then accused of something we didn't do (leaving the lift door open) twice - The sofabed was very uncomfortable - In the first room the we stayed in the view was terrible and not worth having windows there - The bath was coming apart from the wall and the plug for the bath came out and made the water in the bath not go down till I had to fix it - The staff did advise us on a good supermarket nearby called 'Conad' and were good in the way they the changed our room with no fuss at all - The Location was brilliant right next to the dome.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room nearer the top they are a bit better than the ones nearer the ground. And i...

Dear Guest,

Thanks for spending your time to write a review.

We apologize if some problems made our B&B lower than your expectations, since we always try to do our best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. So when we read that we have falling apartment we feel sorry...
Besides: our guests comments, even though they are "critical" are very helpful because help us to turn our weaknesses into a best service.
We didn't accuse nobody for the lift, but to avoid any other inconvenient, we write the informations into the lift!
Yours sincerely
Federica and the Staff
