The proprietor Edo is extremely helpful and accommodating, including helping us retrieve luggage that we left behind at on a train. Thank you, Edo! We stayed in the Garden Room. It was set apart from the main house at the back - very quiet and private, with a lovely garden patio. The room was spacious, and the air conditioning was... More

After taking an11 day cruise from Italy to Turkey and somewhat exhausted, we had the great pleasure of staying at Il Giglio d'Oro for three days in Florence. It's tough to beat the customer care of Celebrity Cruise Lines but Edo, the owner of the B &B, surpassed our expectations. He took us under his wing, explained the local layout... More

We had a great stay, but the location of this B&B is a little out of the way - a bus journey away from Florence town centre. Not a problem in itself during the day as there is a regular and cheap bus service to get you where you need to be, but at night the number of places to... More

We stayed at Il Giglio d'Oro B & B for 3 days in July 2014; the welcome we received from Edo, Celia and daughter Jennifer was simply amazing, they made us feel welcome from our arrival time, assisted us whenever possible, ensuring our stay went smoothly. We stayed there with my daughter, a mate and his daughter, and can't thank... More

I have used Trip Advisor on many, many occasions but never felt so compelled to write a review as I am now. My daughter and I and two friends chose Il Giglio d'Oro based on Trip Advisor reviews. Little did we know that our stay would be the highlight of our month-long stay in France and Italy. Edo and his... More

The Trip Advisor reviews sold us on Il Giglio and they were spot on. Our room was clean and spacious, the bed was comfy, and as all the reviewers have noted, our hosts were as gracious as can be. Eduardo (but quickly your best friend Edo) made us feel very welcome. The price is very fair (and seemed downright cheap... More

Recently passed through Florence with my wife on our way to a wedding and stayed at Il Giglio d'Oro B&B. The owner, Edo, is a remarkably hospitable and friendly man. The kind of service and personal touch you just don't see anymore which makes a big difference when you are away from home. Room was clean and welcoming with free... More

We only stayed here for one night but Edo (the host) was simply the best. My husband and I were staying in Venice and decided last minute to take a day trip down to Venice. Il Giglio was one of the few (and most reasonably priced) places available with only one room left. Since we didn't have a lot of... More

My husband and I recently visited Florence and stayed here for 2 nights. The B&B is in a good location with regular buses to the historical centre. What really made our experience and stay special, was the family who own the B&B. We arrived after a long day on our motorbike looking tired and disheveled! We were greeted by an... More

We spent 8 nights here in June/July 2014. This B&B reinforces the value of TripAdvisor, IMHO. The overwhelming positive reviews reflect a really rare find among B&Bs. Research: We'd never been to Florence, didn't want a downtown hotel (cost), and hoped to find a great spot to get "home" to at night but still be close to the city center.... More
