The hotel is very conveniently located, close to the the duomo and to most of the attractions. It is built in and old palace, the rooms are spacious and tidy. The furniture is a little old style but who cares. From the window we had a view on a courtyard which avoided any noise from the street. The breakfast is... More

The staff went out of their way to be helpful. They complied with all requests couldn't fault them. They washed baby feeing equipment in the dishwasher. The wifi was the only issue it was slow, but this was not a real problem for us but maybe for business users. The room we had was a junior suite it was huge... More

We arrived in Florence on the train after a day of travel from America and Europe. The welcome from the staff and the accommodations made the day long travels a memory. Loved our stay, location,staff. The only downside was lack of a shower curtain, but the tub/shower combo was large enough to not get floor too wet

The location of this hotel is very good, near to meeting areas of tours. It is about 15 minutes walk max to the train station which is about 5 minutes taxi ride. Down the street of the hotel there is a mart which sells whatever you need. There is also a nice restaurant one or two shops away from the... More

We stayed in the apartment for a week in July. Very spacious two bedroom, two bath (and I believe a sleeper sofa in the den but we didn't need it) with a large den/dinning area and kitchen. A/C worked great as did the washer/dryer combo. Hotel is located very close to everything but on a quite street. Grocery store a... More

Il Guelfo Bianco is a delightful old world hotel with all modern amenities and excellent customer service. My daughter and I stayed in a huge room with an ornately carved open beam ceiling, which also had a large, clean, fully modern, beautifully tiled bathroom with walk-in shower and hairdryer. What was essentially a fifteenth century room was fully equipped with... More

My son and I stayed at this hotel in mid June and would highly recommend it. First off, the location is outstanding - at walking distance to most main attractions. Second the room was great - it was large, had a very good bath tub (a boon after the long walks during sight-seeing), was very quiet and was comfortable in... More

Service oriented charming hotel in the heart of Florence and walking distance from almost every attraction. We loved the fact that hotel made bookings for us to go see Statue of David and Uffizi with no extra service charges (just the charge of the tix). We had a junior suite (Rm 338) and while it was charming it was not... More

Dear surpriseanddelight, First of all I have to say I really like Your nickname. Than i did appreciate you admit you are not a fan of charming hotel and you do prefer modern ameties and it' s not our fault as we never advertised the hotel as a modern one. Our hotel is housed in two late 15th century palaces... More

The hotel is very centrally located and feels very boutique. All rooms are different so I can only refer to two where I stayed which were the cheapest available and so not very big, but clean and well equipped. The staff varied from extremely nice and helpful to non caring- we had 4 different reception employees and each had a... More

Dear Ohadresh, thanks for your review. As you wrote all rooms are different here and of course the cheapest are not as large as the most expensive ones even if all of our rooms are equipped with best comforts and original antique furniture.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's house in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (11 till 8,30 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
