Relais del Duomo
Ranked #188 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Our host at this wonderful B&B could not have been more helpful. She provided freshly baked pastries for breakfast each morning as well as took the time to talk to us about our trip to Florence and offered maps and advice about the city whenever possible. The room was cozy and adequate (we stayed in the beige room), with a nice bathroom, comfortable bed and working (in room) A/C and fast wireless internet. A real taste of Italy, but with all the comforts of home. It's location is great. It is just around the corner from the Duomo, but far enough removed from the crowds to still be quiet.

One word of caution, if you have heavy bags or have trouble with stairs, then you may want to consider that this B&B is on the second floor, and the elevator doesn't stop on that floor. However, the host will help accomodate you in everyway possible, so this wasn't a bad thing for us at all.

We stayed here June 9th thru the 14th of 2012.

Great place to stay. It was literally right around the corner of the Duomo. It made it really easy to stop by to freshen up or to relax. The room was clean and bathrooms were also. The breakfast was simple but coffee was great! If you can not decide on hotel or B&B...B&B is the way to go in italy. I feel that the hotels we stayed in were not comparable to the B&B's experience and pricing.

My husband and I spent 5 days there this fall. The location was fantastic - so close to everything. Our hostess, Elisabetta was charming and very helpful. We felt she treated us like family which made our stay even more pleasant. She took care to understand what our interests were and made great suggestions of places to visit that suited our tastes. When reservations would ensure we got in without long line-ups, Elisabetta asked if she could make them for us which she did in a flash. She really made our stay so much better. Our room was lovely, clean, comfortable, and well taken care of. Even though we were in the heart of everything, our room was quiet and we were able to sleep easily. The breakfast room is small and cosy and Elisabetta made sure to bring us our favourites each day. Coffee, tea and fruit were available throughout the day. We would highly recommend Relais Del Duomo to everyone and would stay there again should we be lucky enough to return to Florence some day.

Relais del Duomo was highly recommended by friends who had stayed a few years back - and their recommendation was spot on!. My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights early October 2012. It is located in the heart of Florence, right next to the Duomo. Easy to get to from the train station. Room was good sized, with wardrobe, desk, and tv. Air conditioning was available, but not needed during our stay. Bathroom was cozy, but with strong water pressure. Elisabetta was the perfect hostess, very warm and inviting. Elisabetta was very responsive to our emails and answered all our questions. Prior to us arriving, she arranged our excursion day trip, and made the reservations to the Academia, and Uffizi Gallery - a must to avoid lines. At breakfast time, she made it a point to remember what we liked. I highly recommend Relais del Duomo.

Not only is the location great, in the middle of the centre of Florence, but the B&B itself is also super clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is good for Italian standards, with enough choice and good coffee! In addition, even though the B&B is next to the Duomo, we had no problems with (street) noise.
The highlight of our stay there was actually Elizabetta, who is already ready to answer any questions you may have, give directions and recommendations. A very warm and welcoming person, who made a great difference to our fantastic stay in Florence!

We'll be coming back here for sure.

Fantastic Location second to none!! lovely rooms very clean and excellent shower pressure. Very nice and helpfull staff/owners and very efficient with our booking (we were not expecting it but we even got a discount for paying by cash upon check out).
Breakfast was very nice, tea and coffee making facilities were available to us at all times.
I am always hesitant about making bookings online that are not through a well known broker, but we had no problems what so ever and I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone and everyone. Thank you Relais del Duomo for making our stay in Florence just that much better.

Room Tip: we had two rooms booked both were very nice. I think all rooms are good but you can see them all on...

I recently stayed at the Relais del Duomo on a 3 night break to Florence. This bed & breakfast was ideal and not to expensive. It is centrally located, just a stones throw from the Duomo. The accommodation was clean. Elizabetta was very welcoming and reccommended various authentic Italian restaurants for our evening meal which were very resonably priced. Florence is a beautiful city with plenty to see and do. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
