The people at the front desk are very friendly and helpful. They assisted with the booking of trips and taxis. The breakfast spread provided daily was tasty and freshly prepared. I will definitely return and stay in this hotel for my subsequent visit to Florence.

The hotel is simply beautiful. The mix of the old restored palazzo and modern art work is a perfect blend. The rooms are spotless. The breakfast is delicious. The staff is helpful and friendly. The location is perfect. You can walk to all the major sights. We will definitely return. WiFi is free, but at certain times of day (high... More

I visited from the UK in November 2014. I was with my 17 year old daughter and it was my second visit to Florence, having loved discovering the City on an earlier visit with my husband. The hotel was WONDERFUL. Before arriving I'd been in touch by email and phone with the hotel. They were receptive, responsive and helpful. When... More

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy little boutique hotel for 10 nights in November 2014. It is in an excellent location near the Duomo, Ufizzi, up-scale shopping and all of Florence’s major sites. The hotel is updated and well appointed and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Our room was very quiet and comfortable. The family... More

While visiting Florence and surrounding Tuscany in November 2014 we stayed 10-nights at the II Guelfo Bianco based upon Trip Advisor reviews and recommendations from previous travelers. This hotel (and on-site II Desco cafe) not only surpassed our high standards/expectations but left us wanting for similar hotel experiences while traveling stateside! This hotel and cafe is owned and operated by... More

We went with this hotel because it was centrally located and had some very good reviews on TripAdvisor. This was a great choice; the hotel is exceptionally well located and is a very short walk away from the main sights of the city, perfect for our long weekend when we preferred not to spend time on public transportation. Our room... More

Recently had a wonderful night stay here in November. I booked a superior double and requested in advance a room on the street side and a shower, and received exactly that. I was able to check in a little early which was nice to drop all my bags and freshen up before heading out to the Accademia. I was given... More

GUELFOMANAGER, Manager at Il Guelfo Bianco, responded to this review

Dear KarenAnneM, we really thank you for the lovely words you had about our hotel. Just to avoid misunderstanding I do confirm that room #119 is a junior suite is not a superior one as you booked. We are so happy you wrote about our two solid windows: we have several beautiful rooms overlooking Via Cavour but due to these... More

As we only had one night in Florence we wanted a hotel close to the main sites. This hotel proved perfect for this as it is situated mid-way between the Duomo and the Acadamie where Michelangelo's David stands - and is only about 10 mins walk to each. We booked a Superior Room and my comments assume this, but talking... More

Rooms are very clean and nice. Central location, very kind and professional staff who were also able to recommend good restaurants and were always there for any questions, directions and requests. Breakfast was Ok and not more than that but I guess it's because I'm: A. a vegetarian B. come from a middle eastern country and accustomed to very good... More
