Just like so many others on here, this B&B was INCREDIBLE. Being first time travelers to Florence, Donatella and her husband were wonderful hosts who had copious knowledge about the city, things to do, places to eat and just all around good pointers! Super easy to find from the train station and just a short walk from everything you could... More

I had the privilege of staying with Donatella and Nicolo in their exceptional B&B for 8 days the first week of November 2015. I am an independent and solo traveler and do not usually stay at B&Bs but I found myself drawn to B&B Monte Oliveto based on the reviews posted on TripAdvisor. You can definitely trust the reviews here... More

Delightful hostess Donatella and husband, Nicola, live in and run this B&B. Scrumptious homemade breakfasts every morning, including crepes, fresh fruit salads and GF bread drizzled with olive oil and tomato basil toast. Everything was delicious, especially the cappuccinos! I adored my room, the Wistaria, which was decorated in lavender and soft lime green. The bed was quite comfortable and... More

This is a quiet, romantic B&B within walking distance of many good restaurants and the famous city centre of Florence. But it is not only the location that is remarkable but also the many details from the lovely decorated rooms to the high quality breakfast which show the personal style of the hosts. Use the opportunity to ask Donatella and... More

A lovely townhouse peacefully situated just across the Arno from the centre, but within easy walking distance. Warm and friendly hosts with good recommendations and stories to help bring the city to life. Comfortable, well-equipped room and delicious varying breakfasts.

We wondered where we were going to in the back streets of Oltrarno, but the BeB Monte Oliveto is beautiful, with a lovely sunny garden backing onto the Monte Oliveto itself. Donatella (and Nicolo) are most welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are of homemade food, delicious and plentiful, so set you up for a day of sightseeing.... More

We had the great pleasure of staying at the Monte Oliveto during our 6 day stay in Florence, and we could not have found a better place to stay. This B&B compliments perfectly the ambience of Florence, the residences in this area are as ancient as the city walls, however the charm is what shines. We had the pleasure of... More

The hostess was very helpful in providing information and helping us with reservations and also bus tickets. The room was perfect and included a nice touch of tea and cakes when we returned after a tiring day of touring. Donatella was great at adjusting to our schedule and Nicolo was a gracious host.

This was our third stay at B&B Monte Oliveto, and we can't wait to return. Donatella and Nicolo are such great hosts. Donatella is extremely helpful with recommendations, both local and in other cities, and has helped us book taxis and to secure dinner reservations. She is accommodating, is an excellent cook, and she has put her artistic skills to... More
