We had the spectacular corner room overlooking Duomo piazza. High ceilings, frescoes in our room, bistro table. Wifi only available in the common area.


I had a very enjoyable stay at San Giovanni. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was superb, the atmosphere was calm and the rooms were very clean.

Really excellent location right beside the dome. Hotel was very simple but was pracitcal. Decent price considering it can be an expensive city to stay in.

Fantastic location, and amazing views of the Duomo!


old building without luxuries but charming for their comfort and cleaning, to see the Dome from the window makes it fascinating, great kindness and their owners' courtesy....

I loved this place - it had great character and the remnants of beautiful frescoes on the ceiling of our room. The beds are comfy and towels are provided. Our four-person room had an excellent view of Il Duomo and it's centrally located. You could hear the sounds of the street in the room but at night it wasn't that bad. The wi-fi was really only reliable in the little common room near the entrance, but that wasn't a problem. Umberto is very friendly and kind. Would stay there again!


The security at the hotel was very good, you needed a code to get through 2 of the doors, and a key to your actual bedroom. The Location could not have been better, right off of the main square and you can see the Duomo from your room. Staff was very helpful, and recommended restaurants when asked. My only complaint was the size of the shower, which was tiny, and a little claustrophobic.
