We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this hotel last month. The hotel was located 10 minutes from all the sights. The rooms were large and spotless. The breakfast was very good with pastries, cereals, boiled eggs, meats, cheeses, yogurt, etc. But what sets this hotel apart from other hotels is the staff. Every staff member acted as if... More

How many hotels are there in Florence? Hundreds, at least - and some of them are pretty dire. So when you find an exceptionally good one, you go back (and you recommend it to your friends). We've stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco three times and will stay there again; and the friends we've sent there have all fallen in love... More

We spent 4 nights here on our first visit to Florence, a delightful hotel with good decor being an interesting mix old antique furniture and modern art- it works very well. All staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, making choosing places oaf interest and restaurants very easy. The organic food is worth a mention too. We wish this hotel success... More

Well run, clean, good breakfast, good location. I can only think of two drawbacks. Street noise. Inescapable in most Italian cities, so it is with Florence. While they have triple pane windows, you still get some noise coming through on street fronted rooms. If your the kind of person looking for cool night air with open windows, the noise goes... More

Location is great, breakfast is perfect to get you going, rooms are comfortable and charming. This was our second visit and it was just as wonderful the second time around. Julia and the rest of the staff are at incredibly helpful, make great suggestions, and as pleasant as can be! We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Florence!

We just spent three nights in Florence at this hotel. We could not have been more pleased. It's just a ten minute walk to everything in town. The rooms are very large and comfortable for Europe. Breakfast was a very nice continental spread. What really sets this hotel apart was the service. Everyone there bent over backwards to help us.... More

We stayed for 8 nights and would have stayed longer if we could. The location is perfect, close to everything. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. We loved the breakfasts which was very plentiful and delicious. We booked a bike tour through the hotel and were so happy we did. Fillipo was great!... More

This is a lovely hotel with a wonderful location in the center of Florence. You are within walking distance of most major museums, churches, restaurants and shopping. Hotel is clean and well run. Staff is very helpful. Lovely breakfast each morning. We also enjoyed their little bistro for a bite to eat or a glass of wine. We truly enjoyed... More

We stayed two nights and loved this hotel. We were able to check in very early and the room was large with a view of the Duomo! Street noise was loud but when you closed the windows you couldn't hear a thing. Breakfast was what we expected, front desk attendants were friendly and helpful, and the location was great. The...
