Upon arrival we were enthusiastically greeted by Edo who proceeded to give us all the information we needed for our stay. He explained local bus routes, where and how to get tickets, top sites to see and great places to eat. We stayed in the superior room, it was a large room with a balcony over looking the courtyard garden.... More

The moment we stepped into Edo's house we knew we were in good hands. Il Giglio d'Oro had everything we could need. It was a great location, excellent hospitality, and we were told many secrets about the city. Il Giglio d'Oro is just a 10 minute bus ride away from the historic center. After arriving in Florence, Eduardo told us... More

What was so impressive about this B&B was Edoardo and his family's care and attention . When we arrived Edo was waiting for us and gave us a tour, helping us buy bus tickets, introducing us to the restaurants and local shopkeepers. We stayed in a lovely garden room with absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The local area was,... More

We stayed for four nights and felt like we had returned home from overseas. Edo is very hospitable offering us lots of good suggestions. This neighbourhood has many good quality restaurants. Edo took the effort to introduce us to the chefs who are his good friends. We therefore received very good services at these restaurants. Edo put in extra effort... More

Florence was the second stop on out Italian itinerary. In Rome, we stayed in a B&B right in the center of Rome. So it was great to stay a bit away from the centre of the city in Florence. It felt more homely and less touristy. Edo was a great host. He and Celia manage the place themselves, so it... More

Great stay in the 'Romantic Room' Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights in mid September and it did not disappoint. Edo gave us a tour of the streets around the b&b and helped us book trips etc, he is sooo friendly and cant do enough for you. Our room was very spacious and really nicely decorated with... More

After reading the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor for Il GIglio, I decided to spend my 5 day Florence vacation there. There's not much more i can add to what's been said already except that I was very happy that the experience was as great as I hoped. Edo and Celia run the house converted into a B&B practically single... More

We stayed in Il Giglio d’Oro in August so we only met Edo. The rest of the family was somewhere cool for a little rest from the intense August heat. Despite this, we still had a wonderful time. We ended up in the big room because someone else had a late cancellation which meant we had a lovely balcony in... More

We messed up our booking and had to find somewhere quick for our last night in Florence, so after checking TripAdvisor I decided I'd try Gigllo d-Oro B&B. It was a great decision, Edo and his family go above and beyond expectations, it is quite apparent he loves to meet people and make them feel comfortable; our room was a... More

My stay with Edo and Celia was perfect. My room was beautiful and spacious with a great view of the street! Edo was very accommodating and friendly is an understatement!
