Very helpful and welcoming for a one night transit in Florence. Clean, nice, small, intimate, central... Just what you need for a short stay ! Thanks so much Giancarlo for organising everything, waiting for my late check in etc... !

I always try to find accommodation that enhances my travel rather than just a bed, I definitely found this at II Cielo. Giancarlo was so friendly and helpful and the breakfast he prepared was a real highlight, served in a sweet living room where I was able to chat to the other guests over some amazing tea and fresh produce....

very beautiful B&B and close to Firenze S.M.N. Even we were first time to Firenze, but it's no problem to find it. .Just as others mentioned, it's located on the fourth floor with no lift. When we arrived, Giancarlo was already there and helped us to carry 4 big cases to the room. There are 3 rooms and 1 living... More

I am just back from 4 nights in Florence staying in Il Cielo. The B&B is very close to the train station and is, like almost every review has stated, up on the fourth floor with no lift. This didn't cause us any problems! Giancarlo was there to meet us and showed us around the small B&B when we arrived.... More

Clean environment with very nice decor. The location is on the fourth floor so if you have a lot of luggage or health issues, this may not be your first choice. We enjoyed our room very much and had a nice short stay. Our only dislike was the bathroom situation. Our bathroom and shower was extremely small. The sink and... More

My friend and I stayed in Cielo for three nights, and we had a very wonderful experience staying in Florence. First of all, the location is perfect. It is pretty close to the train station, and it can easily reach most spots by walking. Moreover, it is a cozy and chill apartment. We can feel Giancarlo giving a lot of... More

I had a fantastic stay at Il Cielo. Location-wise it is ideal ... in the middle of the old town, a short walk to the Duomo and the leather markets, and an even shorter walk to the train station. Giancarlo was the most polite and helpful host throughout my stay from my arrival when he lugged my bag up the... More

Just back from Florence and enjoyed a 3 nite stay at Il Cielo. The street is quite close to the train station, yet a bit quieter than others. We did not partake, but there were quite a few restaurants opn the block. The 4th floor rooms are all unique-ours had a nice back garden view, some interesting modern paintings (a... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights at this lovely B&B. On a quite side street, B&B II Cielo, was our retreat in the center of everything. We were made to feel at home from the moment we rang the bell. Giancarlo's thoughtfulness shows in every aspect of his establishment.

The B&B is located in a pedestrian area in the historical center. So the location is perfect: Via Faenza is a small alley with a few restaurants, shops and hotels. Although it's right at the center, it's peaceful and quiet. I did not sleep at the B&B but often hung out with my friend there who stayed at Il Cielo... More
