Relais del duomo had the best location, around the corner from the duomo and walking distance to every part of Florence worth seeing. It is a 10 min walk from the station, and the service we received was impeccable, I had the breakfast every morning which is the staple breakfast every morning, croissant, toast, juice, yoghurt etc. I would definitely stay here again.

This establishment is basic but comfortable. I picked it based in recommendation on Lonely Planet guide. It's location is excellent and for 100 euro a night, good value. There are two people running the place, elizabetta and a male (I believe he is the owner). They are always very friendly and helpful. Fast Internet access and cozy breakfast room. It's basic - you can complain about the small things, but there's not really any point for the price. Thus I rate this a VG... For 100 euro a night. I wouldn't pay any more.

We enjoyed it very much to have stayed in the Relais del Duomo during our visit to Florence.
The perfect position so close to all places to visit was small but very nice. Elisabetta was of great help for information of any kind. We, a couple from Hollland, would stongly advise this small bed and breakfast to anyone who visits Florence!

This B&B has an excellent location, near the Duomo, Academia, the train station, the market and the best piazzas. It feels like we are real at home. The room is really cozy. Our host Elisabetta is very diligent and helpful. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Because it is so near the most important attractions, we were able to go quickly in the B&B when it was necessary.

"Assolutamente raccomandabile !”

I am pleased to recommend Relais del Duomo.

My wife and I went to Italy(Venice, Rome and Florence) for our honeymoon in Oct of 2011 from Canada. Florence was our favourite by far and Elizabetta the manager of Relais del Duomo was a huge part of making our experience in Florence memorable.

Elizabetta kept in touch with me via email months prior to our visit. When we arrived, she greeted us and made us feel welcome. She is this kind and warm little Italian woman, she is really awesome.

The rooms were clean and well kept, we didn't find noise an issue even though our room was above the restaurant and faced the street. At night we closed the glass window and also they have these wooden doors over the windows that you can also close. So with the window and wooden doors, it was like a double barrier and we didn't hear any noise at all.

Also I really appreciated the free wifi so that was a bonus. And last, the location is awesome since it is literally 15 steps to the Duomo.

Enjoy Florence!

I chose this B&B for its location. Right in the middle of all attractions, you are a half block from the Duomo, which itself is midway between the Accademia and Uffizi Gallery. Elizabetta was a very good hostess - friendly, ready to help with museum reservations, advice. Breakfast includes cereal, fresh fruit, toast, croissants, and Elizabetta makes your coffee fresh when you need it. Although cereal and fruit choices are comparatively limited.

Noise can be a problem (we stayed 3 nights Tue-Thurs, and Thurs night there was party-like disturbances, not sure where they came from. Bring earplugs just in case. And the room we had was a wee bit dingy/used, although the mattress was perfectly acceptable. But for the price they charge and the location they have, these quibbles were easy enough to overlook.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the street if possible.
