The ceiling frescos in each room are magnificent, high ceilings , comfortable beds and surprisingly quiet in the middle of high season in Florence!!!. Our hosts were what made it tho--charming, helpful and gracious, welcoming us into the sitting room with... More

We stayed for 2 nights in July at this charming hotel. We reserved two rooms; one room for me and my husband, and one for our two teens. Both rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated, including all hardwood and ceramic flooring (something I really like in a hotel!). My husband and I got the biggest room in the hotel,... More

We found 1865 Hotel to be truly welcoming, the daughter of Cinzia and Michel was most accommodating and helped us plan out travel plans to Tuscany. The rooms were elegant and luxurious with so much attention to detail in a way that would appeal to all ages!! We felt the hotel completely added to the enchantment of our magical time... More

We stayed here 4 nights in August and had a wonderful time. It is very quiet and peaceful and in a really safe part of the town. I felt really safe walking into see the major tourist attractions from the B&B and everything is really close and easy to get to. The rooms are every bit as good as the... More

Cinzia & Michel warmly welcomed us to their beautiful hotel for our weekend in Florence. The welcome included a detailed explanation of all the interesting things to see in this wonderful city and they provided us with a map and books we could borrow about the historic sights. We were then shown to a sumptuous room overlooking a renaissance garden.... More

The decoration is the italian style of the 19th century as the name of the residence, however, all the advanced mordern facilities are so harmonically incorporated into it. The restored original "fresco" ceiling of each room is a must. From the moment I entered the building, I start to love absolutely everything: - Facilities and Comfort: all the details you... More

We stayed as a couple in one of the larger rooms and were completely happy with the furnishings, and grand size of the walk-in closet, separate large bathroom and sink and bathtub areas. The original 19th century ceiling painting added to the cozy, country estate-like splendor that made us smile each morning. The location of this B&B, while not (thankfully)... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 1865 Rezidenza d'epoca and Michel and Cinzia succeed in creating a comfortable environment for their guests. We spent 6 nights in the Dostoyevsky room and slept soundly every night, enjoying the very comfortable king size bed and ample, self-controlled a/c. The living room, equipped with an Illy espresso machine, pastries, bottles of water,... More

This place is a hidden gem with some of the best restaurants in the city only 2 min away. We stayed here for three nights on the last part of our Italy trip and it was by far the highlight of our trip. Michel and his wife Cinzia are gentle and kind and very informative. Michel was so gracious when... More
