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

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.
