This B&B has three guest rooms--one single and two doubles. The doubles have sinks in the rooms, but no toilets (shared full bath with shower). The single has no plumbing. All of them are larger than average and have windows so they are bright. I did not hear any noise through the walls. The owner, Giancarlo, is a very helpful... More

So beautifully decorated, with style, flair and incredible care- Il Cielo felt unique and more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. But unlike some boutique hotels, it was in no way was stuffy or formal- it was so, so relaxing staying there. It felt like a home from home and a little corner of peace and tranquility in bustling,... More

Great place to stay - a return visit for me and once again Giancarlo was a very obliging and helpful host. Location is excellant, an easy walk from the train station and although there is no lift, the stairs keep you fit and Giancarlo kindly helped with our bags. Breakfasts were a treat, always with fresh fruit as well as... More

I had a great time staying at B&B II Cielo, the apartments are beautifully decorated and have a great sense of style to them. The owner is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. I had a lovely time and would whole heartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Florence. Hope to visit again very... More

A private corner of the sky, bright, friendly. A perfect size for a city like Florence that absorbs you completely. The landlord is a real gentleman of another era, young and friendly. Style and details complement the environment. See you soon ... I hope!

It was a perfect stay in a very lovely B&B! Giancarlo, the landlord, is very nice and always helpful! Also, the breakfast is amazing: Good Italian pastry, self-made jam, fresh fruits and juices and very good espresso. The location is good, within 10min you are at Duomo, the area seemed very nice.

Loved Il Cielo!! Super modern/artsy vibe, but still comfortable. Reasons I loved it: Great location!!! A few minute walk from the train station, enough off the main roads that it was in a quieter area. Close to a few fabulous restaurants, too. Less than ten minute walk to the middle of everything in the Duomo area, but not in the... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, October 21-22. Il Cielo was recommended by our daughter who stayed here a couple of years ago. We were not disappointed. We had flight delays coming in from Madrid and I advised Giancarlo of our delays which were changing on an hourly basis. (I always recommend you have a cell phone... More

Wonderful location (5 minutes from the train station, 10 minutes from the Duomo), comfortable and quiet beds, delicious breakfast - this place had it all. It's on the third floor, so be prepared to bring your luggage up some stairs, but for location, price, and convenience, B&B Il Cielo is a great choice.

Il Cielo is a very nice accomodation for travelling along or in two. It has a very good location not far from the central station and from the touristic attractions, as well as supermarkets. Featured with birds, the B&B and it's owner provide very tasty breakfast and fruitfull communication.
