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

Where to start! The surroundings and location is great as it's not in the more "touristy" section of Florence, which is something we look for when travelling. There are several great restaurants in walking distance and Donatella is more than willing to point out where to go for a "real" Italian dinner. The accommodation was great and Donatella is an...

Fantastic location in a quiet residential neighborhood, within easy walking distance of all that beautiful Florence has to offer! When we arrived, we parked our car across the street from the B&B, and that's where we left it for the next three days. Donatella is a thoroughly class act! She and her husband, Nicolo, have a beautiful property--exquisite furnishings and... More

I was travelling to Florence for work and I decided to stay in this guesthouse because it is cosy, quiet, warm and in one of my favourite quarter of Florence "San Frediano". The atmosphere is familiar and recalls the colour and the warmness of home. The owner is a gentle lady that has a great and healthy life style and... More

Staff are very welcoming and a pleasure to chat to. Breakfast was something you would never get even in a five star, very personal. Its nothing like a hotel, you are staying in Donnatella's house. Lovely experience. We would recommend this B&B. We stayed in the large room with bathroom & balcony over looking the back garden. So peaceful and... More

In the Chinese language there is a saying. "A sparrow is small yet it has all the organs". B&B Monte Oliveto is not big at all (this statement does not mean the rooms are not spacious, I am merely comparing it to those gigantic agriturismo we stay in the paese during this trip), but it possesses everything that a tourist...

A gem of an inn just far enough away from the hustle of the city, but very conveniently located near a bus stop that will get you where you want to go. However, if it's a nice day you can also walk across the bridge into the city. Wonderful little neighborhood with plenty of places to walk to. Donatella is... More

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.
