We stayed just one night in this lovely small hotel. Beautiful beams in this charming hotel. Great location, safe area, and very nice staff. Clean and charming hotel and would have stayed longer if we could have. There were 2 adults and 3 kids and it was perfect for our 1 night stay. There is a separate bedroom and living...

This little bed and breakfast was perfectly located in the center of town one block away from the Duomo. I booked one room for four people and the room was very spacious and clean. The beds were also very comfortable. The bed and breakfast was a bit difficult to find as it is in located in a building with other...

We had a lovely time at the Bel Duomo guesthouse. It was located in the most gorgeous little cobbled, bustling street in Florence, right near lots of great restaurants and shops, and the stunning Duomo cathedral. We had a very pretty and comfortable room and Giulio and Mandy (the owners) were so warm, friendly and helpful.The whole place had a...

My brother and I spend one night at Bel Duomo and everything was perfect. Place is just a few steps away from Duomo, room was quite clean and people were incredibly helpful. I strongly suggest you to choose this place if you' re looking for a place that you can have a comfort in Florence.

Seconds from the Duomo, with charming owners. There are a lot of stairs, and no elevator, so if that's an issue for you, be forewarned. Two flights to main floor, another three to top floors. Great view of Duomo from high rooms. Wifi is good on top floors, was really poor on main floor, sadly. Overall, I highly recommend.

My friend and I stayed two nights at this B&B when traveling in Italy. The owners were incredibly nice and so helpful as we asked questions to help us navigate the city. The rooms were clean, quiet, simple and really cute and the location was amazing, not even a full block from the Duomo. We are young and don't have...

Excellent Location! Professional Hosts! Outstanding location with the Baptistery and Duomo steps away. Walking distance from train station and all sites such as Accademia and Uffizi; explored Florence by foot never in need of taxi or bus as the House Bel Duomo is located in the walking district of Florence. An added amenity was waking to bells ringing from the...

The location is great, everywhere is just walking distance. Our receptionist was more than helpful and he was such a gentleman. He has given us every single detail about Florence and the map they provided was better than our guide book. The room was comfortable, super clean and big. We would love to stay there again with my wife if...

Had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Bel Duomo. From booking to checkout Mandy and her staff were extremely attentive to detail and helpful to this first timer to Firenze. Arrived late, took a cab from the airport and the late arrival instructions worked perfectly. Next day went to the Uffizi and Mandy had already made reservations for us,...
