We stayed for 6 nights in early September. The breakfast is great, service was very good, the front desk staff was very helpful before we arrived they arranged museum confirmations for us at no cost and also answered many questions via email in a timely manner. The small restaurant next door offered us a welcome drink and snack. The food... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and were thrilled with this hotel. The hotel is closest to the Duomo but is walking distance to everything. The room was quite large as was the bathroom (and it had a Jacuzzi tub!) The hotel has a lot of character and feels much younger then it appeared to me in the photos before... More

This hotel is in a good location near many sites. However, they did not warn us of the existence of stairs that made our room inaccessible by elevator. Though there is an elevator, it does not reach all floors. They did not offer us any help with our luggage to get us up to our room, so we ended up... More

Dear Vale123, as I already wrote answering to some reviews we do have one elevator to get til 4 floor. Than as the hotel is housed in two late 15th century building we do have a mezzanine between 1st and 2nd floor and to reach the mezzanine there are some steps. Than there are 5 steps to join first and... More

I arrived in Firenze/Florence, Italia from Rome on a Saturday afternoon, by train, thinking I'd get a bed and breakfast. I settled for a hotel and my only requirement for my short stay was that it be clean. The agency at the info centre in the church across the street from the Station hooked me up with Il Guelfo Bianco.... More

My husband, daughter and I chose this hotel because of it's good location, very close to IL Duomo. On arrival, we were warmly welcomed and impressed with the complimentary drinks in the adjacent eatery. We even received complimentary appetizers and the service was lovely. The antique facade of the hotel and rooms were impressive and what really impressed me was... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in July. They have a bike tour offered on their website, it was really fantastic. Pilippo, a very nice Italian guide, met my wife and I at the hotel. The bikes are stored at the hotel and the two hour tour was perfect, followed by a very nice lunch and glass of... More

We chose this hotel on the basis of other excellent reviews and have not been disappointed at all. I would like to be able to award 4.5 stars. The location on Via Cavour is an excellent one - the hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Cathedral (Duomo), the Campanile, and the Baptistry. Going the other way, it... More

We stayed her for 3 nights in August 14 and just loved the location and the ethos of this hotel. Everything they serve you is organic, locally sourced or home grown. When we arrived we were given a voucher to have a free drink in their bistro which was a lovely start to our holiday. The room (overlooking the courtyard)... More

The location of this hotel is a perfect base to explore Florence. Just walking distance to the Duomo and a 10min taxi from the train station. The staff were friendly and pleasant. The room was clean and spacious. The decor in the hotel is quite odd! It is kind of an old-style hotel decorated in arthouse style: think wooden ceilings... More

We had such a wonderful stay at this hotel, starting with the amazing staff, Danniele in particular, who went WAY out of his way to help sort out a parking issue when our GPS took us astray into a very expensive garage. He not only walked with my husband to retrieve and repark the car, he ended up yelling and... More
