As soon as we arrived we were met with a warm greeting from one of our hosts, Cinzia. We had arrived a little early so our room wasn't quite ready, but we didn't mind at all as we were offered a coffee and Cinzia took the time to explain where all the main sights were. The B&B is located within... More

Excellent location, Excellent building, Excellent room EXcellent garden view from the room, Excellent breakfast. May I add that our eggs were prepared personally by the owner Michel! Both Cinzia and Michel were outstanding hosts. They spent the time to give us tips about the city, sites and shopping. A "warm" home away from home.

The first impression is not right for what you are about to see. Arriving at the hotel, I was in doubt if I had the right address. But when you get out of the antique elevator, in the second floor of a residential building, you will believe you are at home in a couple of minutes. Michel and Cinzia are... More

Just spent 5 nights at this lovely residence in Florence and would heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet luxurious break. It was ideally located on a quiet street and was full of Italian character. The owner Michel was lovely, helpful and friendly. Our room was a delight and the whole place truly wonderful. I don't think you... More

We simply loved this B&B. Cinzia and Michel are great hosts and take really care of their costumers. They make you feel very comfortable in their B&B and show truly interest for their guests. The B&B in itself is also very nice. Our room (the Henry James room) was spacious, very nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was good (try the... More

We stayed with Michel and Cynzia in March 2015. We had the Henry James room which is the largest of 5 rooms. The room was very spacious, nicely decorated and superbly clean. The fresco at the ceiling was fantastic to wake up in the morning. Having a bath was wonderful to relax after a day of strolling in Florence. 1865... More

We spent 3 wonderful days at Florence and we were so happy to know we would get to such beautiful and comfortable room every night after all our walks. It is so well decorated with all the first class details of a 5 star hotel. Bathroom and bed were superb and breakfast delicious. Michelle was wonderful to us and he... More

We stayed at 1865 for 3 nights to celebrate my husbands birthday in March. Cinzia greeted us when we arrived and offered us coffee while she sat with us over a map of the city and marked points of interest for us to visit. She also made a restaurant booking for my husbands birthday on the Saturday night, the restaurant... More

We stayed here with our four year old son and had a phenomenal experience. Michel really made us feel at home. The rooms are beautiful and modern, the breakfast is really good, and the location is great. This is one of the best stays we've had in a long time!

Wonderful. I can't begin express how memorable our experience was. I decided last minute to take my husband for his birthday to Italy . Michel made reservations to a great restaurant nearby. It was not only delectable but located in the neighborhood. That was great after a long day of driving with Italian drivers. The acommodations could not have been... More
