“In the heart of Florence ... and almost at home”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

We had booked this B&B based on ratings on Tripadvisor. And given we were staying at brand name hotels in the other cities in this trip, we were a little apprehensive about this. But the exemplary service began 2 weeks before we arrived - they reached out to me to confirm the stay and asked me to inform them when I would be arriving and how. They also told me what would the best ways to get to the hotel. We arrived late @ 10:30PM at night and while we had a little difficulty in locating the doorbell, the rest was pretty smooth. Elizabetta was waiting for us - she gave us a quick tour of the place and gave us our set of keys. The room was spacious enough for European standards and most importantly clean and neat. The next morning we had a nice breakfast and even borrowed the Florence guidebook for our day in the city. She was also kind enough to recommend a restaurant frequented by locals (Il Pizzaiuolo - don't miss it, she helped us make reservations which was a must). Very nice place and more importantly, very nice people. The only thing i would say is that, it does say it has wheelchair access but it doesnt (it's up just one floor but that might be an impediment for some people). Also if anyone stays here, the restaurant immediately below the B&B is avoidable, but the tiny tratorria across the street (see photo) is a very nice place.

Room Tip: The restaurant immediately below the B&B is avoidable, but the tiny tratorria across the street...

The bed and breakfast was in an excellent location. Everything was within walking distance. They served breakfast in the morning and Elisabetta was an excellent host! She makes you feel at home and is willing to help you with whatever you need. We needed a train schedule for Pisa and she printed us out the departing and returning train schedule. The have free Wi Fi if you need which is a plus. The rooms were clean and neat. We had traveled to Paris, Venice and Rome too and this place was our favorite due to the excellent care we received from Elisabetta! We would stay here again!

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!
