Thank you Nicollo and Antonella for your warm welcome and a lovely place to stay. We really enjoyed our stay, away from the city just enough but close se enough to walk. The room was clean and comfortable le and the dining area looking out to the garden was nice.

This host at this B and B is a wonderful woman named Donatello! She is an artist herself and a wonderful resource for anything you might want to see or do in Florence, including top notch restaurants. She goes the extra mile and gets you reservations, and knows when things are closed and what the best times to visit are.... More

This place was perfect for my visit of Florence: wihtin walking distance to the city center and 20 min walk away from the central station. Bus stop is nearby as well. Monte Oliveto is a very nice, cosy, clean and quiet B&B. And Donatella really is a great host, very friendly and charming, helpful with tips for tourist attractions, a... More

What a find...from the moment we arrived to the moment we left B and B Monte Oliveto with Donatella as our hostess, was a delight. We were so happy our research on Trip Advisor found this wonderful gem for us...B and B Monte Oliveto stands way ahead of the two other B and B's we stayed in whilst in Italy.... More

I was visiting Florence the last week of December so I wanted a place close to the city center but that would allow me peace and quiet in the evenings. Monte Oliveto met my needs. It is a nice, clean and quiet B&B walking distance from the center of Florence but far enough to get away from the tourist crowds.... More

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
