Guestbook comments from the manager

We've thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful apartment. Our daughter is studying in Florence and we were excited to spend this time with her. Her apartment leaves much to be desired... cold and dreary. We were happy to give her a warm space and hot shower! Our family of 5 was very comfortable here. The apartment is extremely convenient and centrally located. While in Florence we walked and walked.... and walked and walked... Oh yes!! And ate and ate.... and ate and ate.



It was wonderful to arrive to a beautiful basket of cheese, fruit and wine set up by Paolo, whom I can't say more wonderful things about. He was instrumental in making our vacation in Florence no short of PERFECT! Happy New Year!

Spectacular! Should be on everyone's bucket list!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Florence apartments many times and find the apartment experience to be far superior to a hotel stay. Belvedere Duomo has all of the comforts of home : a beautiful kitchen, great amenities, a washer and dryer, and an incomparable location. This apartment would cost 5 times as much in a fine hotel - so I consider it a real bargain.

The apartment was spotless, the beds incredibly comfortable and the onsite manager Paolo was a true treasure. He set up tours for us, a cooking class in the apartment! (We went with the chef to buy the food in the mercato centrale) .

I will be back to Belvedere Duomo as often as I can! This should be on everyone's bucket list!

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the flat. It is everything shown to be in the description and more. It was immaculate in cleanliness and decor. I had been warned the center might have a noise issue, we NEVER heard a sound.

The stairs could be a problem, but not for us. We highly recommend this property to everyone.

We hope to go back.

Excellent Choice in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent. The apartment itself is modern, clean and well accessorized. Paolo provided excellent service and local advice. We were only there for 3 days but could not have picked a better spot. No more need to be said about the stairs other than mobility is a must.

Great Location. Professional booking, payment and help for check in

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Interaction with owner was very easy and professional which was important. The person that assisted with check in was on time and professional. The only negative comment I would make was regarding the view. There are two apartments in the building - we rented the larger apartment and it does not have any view. 88 steps up and no view was a bit of a disappointment. The smaller apartment has an outdoor deck and a great view of the Duomo. I would rent that one if it is large enough.

Owner's Response: I am so glad your visit was great - but I'm surprised about the comment about no view - this apartment has a nice view to the west through large windows on the mezzanine of the dome of San Lorenzo and the Medici Chapels The one bedroom at www.vrbo.com/267152 is the apartment I rent with the terrace overlooking the Duomo. This apartment does not advertise a view - it advertises great location - which it has, and great amenities and quality which are confirmed by all of the other views. I hope you can return again soon and rent the apartment with the terrace overlooking the Duomo - thanks - Ron

Dream stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Great location to see Florence. The apartment is very well decorated and has all the comforts of home. My wife could not believe I was able to find such a gem. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and Luca was fantastic once we got to the apartment in helping us check in. Thank you for a great stay.

We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.

Really nice place with perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in August for 4 nights with my two sons in their early 20's. The apartment was very nicely furnished with everything you could want for a stay. Very comfortable. We were there during a very hot period and the air conditioning worked fine. We only decided to go to Florence 2 weeks prior to making the arrangement and working with both the owner and manager was extremely easy and pleasant. Luca the manager in Florence was very helpful and nice once we arrived. Would definitely stay again if we were returning. While the stairs were not an issue for us at all if you had any mobility issues this might not be the place for you.
