Monte Oliveto is far enough from the center of the tourist chaos that you can sleep undisturbed. It is on a quiet street and backs onto a beautiful hill. Each room has good air conditioning that you control, which was crucial in my stay there in July as it was over 40 most days and humid. I would return from... More

Monte Oliveto was a fantastic place to stay in Florence. I liked that it was a bit outside of the city center. Donatella was a wonderful host. She was so warm & welcoming. Her breakfast every morning was fresh and so good. She gave us lots of tips about Florence. We stayed in the room on the top floor. It... More

We were the first time in Monte Oliveto B&B and enjoyed it very much. Marta was very attentive, helpful and gave us a lot of valuable insider tips for Florence. The spacious room on the top floor was like the whole house decorated very stylish, and Marta has surprised us every morning with a lovingly prepared breakfast. The house is... More

After Ma weary day travelling with the kids on a super hot 40 degree day we arrived at the B and B . We were treated to the smiling face of Marta and shown our room. Her hospitality and helpfulness is wonderful. Marta booked us in to a local resturant which we were very appreciative off. We travelled by local... More

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
