A grand, ancient house with the uniqueness of a private aristocratic residence, is offering hospitality in a few comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms. Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo is located in the heart of historical Florence, 30 mt. away from the Cathedral, in the center of the shopping area and at walking distance from the main monuments and museums. Its origins date back to the 14th century. The great sculptor Donatello (1386-1466) had his workshop here.

Recently, the residence was completely renovated without altering its features and maintaining the fascination of its past history. Rooms are large, have high painted ceilings, frescoed walls and are elegantly decorated. All rooms have "en suite" bathrooms, fitted in marble. The whole residence is air-conditioned.

The Palazzo was originally built by the Naldinis, an important family of Florentine merchants and bankers. It, remained in the Naldini family until 1891, when the last descendant, Cristina, married Marchese Eugenio Niccolini di Camugliano and brought into this family as part of her dowry.

The present owners, Filippo and Ginevra Niccolini di Camugliano, personally supervised the renovation works and oversee the residence down to the slightest detail, in order to ensure that guests be offered a top quality treatment, comparable to that of a luxury hotel.  All rooms offer direct-dial telephone, satellite TV, P.C. plugs, safe with combination, air conditioning system, minibar, and hairdryer. There is a wired Internet connection in the rooms complimentary and WIFI in the main salon.

There is a big drawing room where guests can read, relax or meet for conversation.  Private parking in courtyard at 30 euros per night.  The Klab is very close for those needing gym facilities.  Breakfast can be served in the rooms. Staff is present every day from 7:30 a.m. until 8 p.m.
