We were shocked and delighted to find the B&B Soggiorno Battistero, a budget gem located right next door to the Duomo! Not only are the views spectacular, but rooms are also spacious and bright, with a dose of antique appeal. We were pinching ourselves by the end of our visit. But yes, this place—and its rates—are for real.
Housed in a 14th-century palazzo, the Soggiorno Battistero offers six large and light-filled rooms. They’re decorated in dark wood, with several real antiques as well as some great imitations. Artwork is scarce, but fun. Double-paned windows keep the main attraction and the surrounding masses seen and not heard, just the way we like it. All rooms are outfitted with air conditioning, a telephone and free Wi-Fi.
We were waiting for the big disappointment to come with the bathrooms, but the modern appliances are in perfect working order, and space abounds. All in all, this is one baby you'll want to book way in advance.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Soggiorno Battistero neighborhood
You can't miss Brunelleschi's magnificent dome atop the rosy marble Cathedral. It's the obvious central meeting point in Florence and the tourist hub of the city. Here, you're in the vicinity of practically everything: the Uffizi Museums, Palazzo della Signoria, the San Lorenzo Market and the Accademia. The big guns in Italian fashion are located along Via Tornabuoni and there are plenty of cafes and dining options.
