The place was by far the most beautiful, it even had a jacuzzi tub. Comfortable.....not to crazy about the location but was okay because of the location to the train station. Washer provided....Small terrace....We couldnt agree on the air conditioning temperature but we could open the windows so it was fine....I wish it were closer to the city center but they have another place. Guido and Maria were great hosts.....and Guido makes a great cappuccino...

This is a small family run B&B. The room was spacious and well decorated and it's 30 seconds walk to the Duomo. Guido makes an excellent breakfast and Gioconda could not have been more helpful - getting tickets, recommending good restaurants. Noise no more than you would expect in a city centre. We hope to go back. This is a gem.

We rented the 1 BR apartment facing the Duomo for 2 nights. The location was excellent and we had a view of the dome from the balcony and living room/kitchen window. The apartment was nicely furnished and clean, the kitchen well equipped if you plan on cooking at home. On our first day the host Maria was very friendly and helped us with out luggage, gave us tips for sights and restaurants. However next day when we called to complain that we weren't able to sleep as none of the air conditions were working and that we couldn't leave the windows open as insects would come in, her attitude changed and she said she will get it fixed. But that never happened! We had no choice but to open the window as it was very hot and spend the night battling with flies. Our hosts attitude was very rude and she had the nerve to claim that there were no insects in Florence, and that we could have lit candles to keep them away. I even showed her the review below by Eileen in August and the fact that she failed to fix the AC in over a month. Another thing was that the apartment description said that it was on the 4th floor with elevator. The elevator actually takes you to the 3rd floor and then you climb a floor by stairs. This was difficult with luggage and for the elderly couple with us. The internet only worked if you were sitting in the balcony or on the dining table in the kitchen. I would not stay here again and warn people from doing so as the host has no respect for the client.

The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to the main tourist attractions. It's a 2 minute walk to Piazza al Duomo, 10 minutes to the Uffizi and Accademia. Guido and Mariagiaconda were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast was expertly prepared by Guido and he allowed us to use his computer to print some train tickets. The bedroom was a very good size. The bathroom was quite small which really wasn't an issue but the shower was so small that it was actually difficult to bend down. We would stay again because of the position.

Friendly and helpful staff and right in the very heart of Florence. Breakfast was plentiful and Guido's cappucino and hot chocolates were delicious. Al Duomo has everything you need for a perfect stay in Firenze - location, comfort and hospitality. Book it without hesitaton!

The only reason I rated this B&B less on some points was the size of my room. I have not seen any of the other ones, but mine was tiny. It was a single, but was expecting it to be slightly bigger. Also, there was no view from my room. Apart from that had an excellent stay; it is a very small family run B&B and the owners certainly try to make you feel at home. Breakfast was excellent; one morning I woke up late and decided I wasn't going to make it in time for breakfast(which finishes at 10). As I was leaving at 10.30 I got offered breakfast anyway. They've been very accomodating and extremely welcoming. Amazing location- literally less than a minute to Piazza del Duomo. Would highly reccommend.

Everything is as excellent as stated below. I'm not very sure about facilities listed on venere.com page such as: laundry room, pool, valet service, health club etc... probably the hosts can advise your about it or even make an appointment. And there is definitely no shop in the hotel. Nevertheless, there are lot of Laundry selfservice, minimarkets, bars, gift shops all around the place even if they are not B&B facilities. It would be better to mention tea/coffee facilities within the room which is an advantage, and free toiletries in the bathroom (including tooth kit!) and the fridge in the kitchen, too. The place is quiet enough, you don't have any street noise as the hotel is on the very high 4th floor; but the soundproofing in the hotel is poor (like it is in any urban flat with 4 rooms and bathrooms and a kitchen)

This place is a perfect 10! The locale is perfectly situated within walking distance of everything that is a must see in Florence. The owners Guido and Maria are wonderful hosts and are eager to accomodate. I, along with my friends, will definately recommend this B&B to everyone traveling to Firenze! Grazie per tutto Guido y Maria!!

This lovely place is directly off the Duomo Square. Our room showed a wonderful view of the hills and down the street to another square. Very spacious room! Our host made breakfast HIMSELF, complete with lattes, fresh croisants, etc. The owners joined us for coffee one afternoon and provided historical background of Florence and the area, including recommendations for suppers. Great location for walking to everything, even the train station.

This was the best B&B we stayed at during our trip to Europe. It was clean, and in a good area. I cannot speak highly enough of the owners, Guido and Mariagioconda. They are lovely people and made us feel at home,as they do to all guests. The personalised service was great and all the restaurants they recommended were great.

This was our first visit to Florence and we couldn't have picked a better location for our accommodation. B&B Al Duomo is perfectly situated in the heart of Florence within a short walk of all the principle sights and attractions. It was superb and we would definitely recommend it and hope to return again.

Family would love this place.(I stayed there with my mum and sis and younger brother) It's located really near at Duomo cathedral... quite and clean... Above all, the room was spacious than other italian hostels... (Even though a toilet was small~) The staff(who runs this hostel) was so so so kind and very useful! (his english wasn't good but you can understand him without big difficulties) It was so great and I would be back next time!
