We had a fantastic visit to Florence, and this hotel was an important part of it. Here's the bottom line: The location is fantastic. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The breakfast buffet is more than good enough to start the day, and the rooms are fine. I differ with the reviewer who likened this to a Holiday Inn,... More

We stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco for three nights. When we first arrived we were greeted by Antonella who was enthusiastic and really helpful. We were given a voucher for welcome drinks and then we went to our room. We had a lovely view over the rooftops looking out towards the duomo. The room was lovely, big, clean and comfortable....

We stayed at the Il Guelfo Bianco for a total of seven nights, and we were very pleased with our choice. Very unique hotel, everywhere you look is like a museum. The breakfast was Exceptional. A short walk up via Cavour brought us to the Cathedral, Piazza del Seignoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery. Also a great location if you do... More

We chose this hotel as it was the #10 hotel in Florence on TripAdvisor. It is in a great location, however it lacks the luxury we are used to. If you are comfortable in Holiday inn or Ramada, then you will be happy with this hotel. Don't get me wrong, it's clean and a good place to stay if you... More

Dear Jasonazz, well we are a bit surprise reading your review….first of all we are listed #10 on TripAdvisor not because we are a luxury hotel. We never wrote we are a luxury hotel and we have not rates for a luxury hotel. It will be the dream for all people to pay rates for a three star hotel and... More

The staff was friendly, the location is centrally located, near the Uffizzi Gallery. We walked from the train station, and walked all over Florence from the hotel! The room was large enough for our family of four. The breakfast buffet had a good choice of cappuccino, espresso or coffee, but basic food. The room was quiet with the windows closed,... More

We stayed in the apartment on the 4th floor. It was a spacious 2-bedroom apartment with two bathrooms, a small kitchen and a living room. There was a small inside balcony (I assume for smokers but I drank some wine out there). The building is 400 years old and the elevators proved to be a little temperamental but having the... More

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and have a great time in Florence. The location of the hotel is fantastic and most of the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was delicious (best bruschetta I ever had) and the welcome cocktail and snacks at the conjoining restaurant was a very warm touch. It is definitely quiet and feels safe at night...

Dear Brooke B, we are happy you appreciate the location and even the breakfast and also our bistro restaurant IL DESCO. Regarding the hotel décor: our hotel is housed in a late 15th century building completely renewed but we try to maintain all architectural elements like wood ceiling, brick arches, original frescos in some rooms. We jhave also chosen to... More

This is a wonderful hotel! Has a great feel to the rooms, beds are comfortable and the service and staff is excellent. If your driving the car park here is a lovely benefit. They take your car for you and park it in the garage--you won't need it until you leave so. Location is also terrific--very close to all the... More

Stayed here in May with clients. Beds were comfortable and though rooms are sparse, they are clean. The hotel offers good value for the price. The lobby is small. Staff is uber friendly and super helpful. The breakfast is a lovely buffet of organic fruits and cheeses and fresh breads. It's a ten minute walk to San Lorenzo market and... More

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
