"B&B ideale"
Posizione eccellente, praticamente in piazza Duomo. Camere pulite, comode e accoglienti. Prima colazione in camera, secondo quanto ordinato la sera prima: che piacere! Personale molto gentile e disponibile. Il posto ideale per soggiornare a Firenze.


Ospite Venere - USA

We were in Florence for a few days in June 2011. The stay at La Residenza del Proconsolo was an amazing treat after staying in a few other hotels in different italian cities. The service here was wonderful, staff was extremely nice and very accommodating (Lorna always made sure we had everything we needed) The interior was authentic, airy (high ceilings!) and clean (without somewhat typical for b&b unnecessary shabby-shic clutter). Our room was very private & spacious, facing the Duomo - couldn't be more romantic. We loved : the superb location, phenomenal view from our room, security & privacy, & breakfast in bed! Also before we got to Florence I sent an email asking some questions and Mariano was really helpful. He also booked us tickets for the Uffizzi - saving us hours of queuing. As for other posts mentioning the noise - keep in mind that this is a busy center of a quite popular city, filled with tons of loud tourists, so just close the windows at night. In overview - we we would stay there again if in Florence, not only because of prime location, view etc, but because of Mariano and Lorna who made our stay really special : )

10Loved this hotel! Very Italian with it's stone floor and high ceilings and breakfast served into the room is great. The owner/manager was lovely and helped us with the one out of the blue hiccup we did have. Not a biggie though. Superb location in Florence, a delightful stay all 'round.

We recently stayed at Proconsolo for the 3rd time. Mariano is consistently helpful and kind and the staff are respectful and seem happy to be there. The rooms have always been impeccably clean and the feel of the place is charming and comfortable. You can't beat the location. It's so special to me I almost want to keep it a secret. But that wouldn't be fair. Enjoy!

Stayed 3 nights (May 2012), staff and Mariano the owner very friendly and helpful.Right on the door step of the Duomo - great location perfect to take walks through the city and see the sights. Nice clean large room.Had a wonderful time in Florence.

Thomas Underhill - US

We stayed last summer - 17-June-2011 through 19-June-2011 and absolutely loved this B&B. Mariano and team were awesome, the view from the Michaelangelo suite was amazing, and we enjoyed the spacious, clean, and comfortable accommodations. We loved it so much that we just booked another stay for July.


Ho dormito due notti in questo B&B e davvero non avrei potuto chiedere di meglio. La stanza era molto carina, grande, ben rifinita, pulita. Il bagno privato comodo e con l'idromassaggio. Lo staff è davvero cortese e serve persino la colazione a letto.
La posizione è ideale, il duomo lo si vede dalla finestra.
Consiglio vivamente questa soluzione!

We stayed 3 nights- the room was huge, clean and very comfortable. The staff were really helpful, amazing view and you couldn't ask for a more central location. You are literally a stones throw from the Dumo.
Breakfast also was just what we needed, on time and fresh.
They also allowed us to use the room until we needed to leave for the airport without extra charge instead of chekcing out in the morning.
Highly recommended!
thank you Mariano!

My husband and I stayed three nights in the Leonardo Room and loved it. The location was perfect, with great views of the Duomo right out our window. The rooms was beautiful and comfortable. Our bathroom was quite spacious too. Breakfast in the mornings was a treat arriving every morning at the appointed time. The staff was extremely helpful with all our questions and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend this B&B to any traveler.

Barbara McCartney - US

Not often in life do fantasies come true but this one did. The La Residenza del Proconsolo was everything I dreamed of. Everything was perfect from the staff to the room. Thank you so much for everything. Hopefully we can return some day.

Julia & Stuart Richardson - England

Location,location,location - add to this very helpful and friendly staff who give you all the right advice and can recommend excellent local restaurants. The rooms are well appointed and large enough for breakfast to be served in them at your leisure. Florence is a wonderful city to visit and La Residenza del Proconsolo makes you feel at home right from the first day. We will recommend to our family and friends and will return ourselves one day.

Lindsay & Riccardo Dinast - US

We loved our stay at Proconsolo!A wonderful location only steps from Piazza del Duomo.Room was spacious two huge windows with a Duomo view.Street noise not an issue- we loved the church bells. Bathroom was large ( although I would prefer a straight curtain on the tub rather than circular one) Lorna is totally wonderfull. She was so accomodating and always with a smile and helped us with reservations in other cities we were visiting.I definitely recommend Proconsolo.

Karen Beijer - US

Our room at this hotel was the best one in the house, with the balcony and two beautiful french doors overlooking the street and the Duomo! So romantic! The room was very spacious, high ceilings and a nice size bathroom. It is in such a great spot. Very convenient. The street noise was a little loud, but we always travel with a "sound machine" so it drowned out the cars and sirens. Can't wait to return!

Margaret Haney - US

The La Residenza del Proconsolo is in the perfect location with a beautiful view of the Duomo.The bedroom with large, high ceiling and the spacious bathroom were wonderful. It was such a treat to have breakfast - including cappuccino and light pastries- delivered to the room each morning. The staff and owner were very pleasant and helpful. There could not be a better place to stay in Florence!

Loren Ellis - US

Excellent location, good staff, very helpful on recommendations for restaurants, bus service, etc.

Louise Megson - United Kingdom

This hotel is in a fantastic position, we stayed in the Leonardo Suite which has amazing views over the street and the Duomo. The double glazing and air con ensured a peaceful night, however, the bells and sirens still managed to wake us up in the morning. The typical Italian breakfast was served in the room, and was basic and satisfactory. The staff were welcoming and helpful and I would highly recommend this place for visitors to the city. May 2009.

John Wood - United Kingdom

We found our room at the front of the building suffered from traffic noise. The rooms were huge with wonderfully high ceilings, had great charm and character, were spacious,comfortable, well furnished - we had a four-poster!-and the bathroom had a hydrotherapy bath - a real boon after a busy day walking many miles! The staff were charming and helpful. An excellent location, within walking distance of everything you could hope to see.

Maria Cabral - Philippines

I would like to commend the owner Mariano who is very nice and accommodating. I would also like to mention Lorna for the excellent service and for being extra nice and for making sure we have everything we needed and more throughout our stay there. The room is okay but I would have preferred to stay in the room with a view of the time, maybe. We would definitely stay here again...

matthew shanahan - UK

This is a lovely boutique small hotel in the heart of Florence.
We upgraded for the luxury room only a extra 20euros a night and the room i thought was brillant a beautiful 4 poster bed very romantic and if you want to look like you,ve pulled out the stops to make it a special romantic trip then this is a absolute winner.

Axe - Vancouver, Canada

This B&B is in an excellent location, just 10 steps from the back of the Duomo, and a 10-minute walk from everything else. The room was large and very nicely decorated. There is good air-conditioning and is quiet. You can get a view of the Duomo and Dome. There is a shower and bathtub too. The owner and staff here are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was very clean and well-kept. The reception is not staffed 24 hours a day, but check-in can be done anytime durring the day.

Barry Bloke - South Wales

We had one night in Florence, and were given an excellent room overlooking the Cathedral. Everything from the welcome to the standard of the room was perfect.

Be aware that this is more of a Guest House than a hotel - no evening staff or bar for example, and that the breakfast is a continental breakfast served in the room on a trolley at a time of your choosing.

M.M. - Spain

Ha sido una estancia estupenda. Eramos tres personas en la habitación con un gran espacio para movernos. El jacuzzi un gran invento para relajarnos después de las agotadoras jornadas. Muy céntrico. Nos hemos sentido como en casa.

Rebecca Barclay - London, United Kingdom

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Run by a lovely young family. Perfect location.An amazing place. We arrived about 11pm and spoke to the receptionist - who happened to be the lady owner. Breakfast was served in the room and we could have absolutely anything we wanted. We had a twin room as I was with my mother - it was lovely and spaceous, and the bathroom was beautiful - we had a jaccuzi in ours!
I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

Amparo Camacho - Valencia, Spain

Very nice place and very nice people there.
Very near the Duomo, it is well located if you prefer to stay in the city centre.
Warm and comfortable.
