Beautiful B&B in a lovely and peaceful area at a walking distance from the centre of Florence. Great view on the Monte Oliveto. The room was very clean and furnished with everything you need (including air conditioning). Breakfast was veg friendly, varied and beautifully served in the garden. The owners are friendly and fluent English speakers. Their knowledge of the... More

I loved everything about my stay at B&B Monte Oliveto. My room was lovely, quiet and comfortable; furnished, as is the rest of the house, in beautiful colors, with antiques and Donatella's wonderful watercolors. I loved being away from the crowds of tourists in the city center, and very much appreciated Donatella and Marta's mapping their favorite restaurants, where locals... More

From the pictures online, this looked to be an oasis where I could relax from a stressful few months. Not so. The web site shows an inviting garden, but no one was invited there and after breakfast the only area available to guests were their rooms. While the mosquitoes, steep stairs, distance from the city center and noise from other... More

We definitely made the right decision when choosing the Monte Oliveto and hope to visit again soon. From our first telephone call, Donatella and Marta could not have been more sweet and helpful to us. They advised on airport transfers, tourism and great little restaurants around the town. Our accommodation was very stylish and artistically decorated and was spotlessly clean.... More

This is a lovely B&B just enough outside the energy and pace of the center of Florence for a quiet reprieve, but close enough to walk to museums, restaurants and shopping, enjoying the local flavor of Florence on the way. Donatella and Marta are wonderful hosts sharing their love of their city and all of it's offerings, and guiding guests... More

It was a delightful stay in a very charming neighborhood with every possible perfection achieved in service and hospitality. The hosts were friendly and I loved the room that we stayed in. Their advices were spot on right from restaurants and places worthwhile visiting in the city. In a city flocked by tourists getting an affordable and decent accommodation can... More

Very good location - quiet place outside but not far from the touristic centre of Florence. Very nice and friendly people. Donatella went over the map of Florence with us and gave as a lot of very good recommendations of cafes, restaurants and other points of interest. The breakfast was very good with some surprise every day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Monte Oliveto. Both Donatella and Marta were warm and welcoming. They helped us with great restaurant recommendations, and made reservations for us. Our room was wonderful, with a nice balcony overlooking the garden and en suite bathroom/shower. The location is excellent...we walked everywhere, and it was nice to return to Monte Oliveto, situated in... More

Donatella and Marta provide warmth, hospitality, a beautiful and comfortable room, delicious breakfast, and fantastic recommendations. The B&B is located just south of the Arno so is especially convenient if you have a car. There are great restaurants in the neighborhood and it is no more than a 15-20 minute easy walk to the historic centre. My husband and I... More

Monte Oliveto is just outside the sightseeing city center and a respite from its commercial and tourist frenzy. My wife and I enjoyed the Sage room - comfy bed, excellent Wi-Fi - with its detached bath. Do plan to spend an afternoon in the garden patio with a bottle of wine. With no houses behind, it is an oasis. Marta... More
