The B & B is beautifully kept, with picturesque rooms, and garden, all for a reasonable price. What makes it best is Donatello and Nico. They made me feel like I had an inside scoop on Florence. They were kind, informative, and welcoming. They gave me great suggestions on places to see and eat. The breakfast Donatello prepared each morning... More

So many wonderful experiences in Florence. Such a beautiful city! Donatello & Nico were perfect hosts. Donatello spent real time and effort helping sort through what to see and do in her lovely city. The B&B was perfect. Clean, bright, comfortable and nicely appointed. She served a delicious breakfast each morning. It was lovely sitting in her garden and chatting... More

Monte Oliveto is far enough from the center of the tourist chaos that you can sleep undisturbed. It is on a quiet street and backs onto a beautiful hill. Each room has good air conditioning that you control, which was crucial in my stay there in July as it was over 40 most days and humid. I would return from... More

Monte Oliveto was a fantastic place to stay in Florence. I liked that it was a bit outside of the city center. Donatella was a wonderful host. She was so warm & welcoming. Her breakfast every morning was fresh and so good. She gave us lots of tips about Florence. We stayed in the room on the top floor. It... More

We were the first time in Monte Oliveto B&B and enjoyed it very much. Marta was very attentive, helpful and gave us a lot of valuable insider tips for Florence. The spacious room on the top floor was like the whole house decorated very stylish, and Marta has surprised us every morning with a lovingly prepared breakfast. The house is... More

Her hospitality and helpfulness is wonderful. Marta booked us in to a local resturant which we were very appreciative off. We travelled by local... More

I returned to this B&B four years after my first visit because I simply could not forget it. Donatella is a treasure, so helpful and fun to spend time with over breakfast every morning in her garden. The house is beautiful, with the guest rooms separated from the primary house, allowing for privacy when you desire it. A computer is... More

A most enjoyable stay. Donatella and Marta are wonderful hosts and gave us a lot of advice as to where to go, what to see and where to eat. Even provided bus tickets to make it easier for us to get around. Homemade breakfast, lovely clean facilities. Only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Florence. Will definitely stay... More

I took many hours reading reviews of B & B's in Florence and compared across many websites. Thank youTrip Advisor for all of the detailed reviews that were so helpful in allowing me to narrow down the choice to B & B Monte Oliveto. From the early on email exchanges with Donatella & Marta to the moment of the warm... More
