Stayed with my wife two nights mid-August. We really liked the hotel. Location was excellent - we easily walked there from the train station. Upon arrival we were offered a free drink and snack at the adjacent Il Desco Bistro (excellent too). The room (and rest of the hotel) was beautifully decorated - bed was very comfortable and area is... More

My 2 sons & I spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel in early August. The location was fabulous ~ we walked everywhere we went. Our room was large and comfortable, my 9 year old even declared the pull-out sofa the best he's ever slept on. We especially liked the huge bathroom, and the olive oil toiletries were wonderful (I'm... More

First time we entered our room, the cleanliness and, decor took us by pleasant surprise; very nicely decorated large room with AC (must in Florence in August). The breakfast was all organic and, tasty! The adjoining restaurant also offered free snacks and drinks on our arrival. A stones throw from Duomo and, the heart pf Florence. We totally enjoyed our...

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 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

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
