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.

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
