1865 Residenza is an unusual oasis-- the rooms are wonderful, the hosts gracious, breakfast fantastic. Would stay there again. And again! It is conveniently located in a residential area about 8 minutes by foot from Santa Croce, 12 to the Duomo. Wine, chocolates and fresh fruit await for you in the living area in the afternoon; digestifs in the evening.... More

This quaint and historic bed and breakfast was the most wonderful lodging experience that we have ever experienced. It is in a perfect location,central to all of Florence's activities and sights. The Uffizi Gallery and Bargello Sculpture Gallery are less than one block from the hotel. Do not miss the walk across the bridge to Oltrarno with its wonderful shops... More

Quiet, comfortable, friendly, convenient - everything you could possible want in a place to stay in Florence. Owners did everything to make us feel welcome, plus you get great recommendations and a breakfast to suit any taste.

Located near the city center, just 10-15 mins walk, away from the busy area. Really good location. We were not a bnb type of couple and this is our first experience staying at a bnb. Was a little confused on how to get into the place, cos i missed the buzzer outside. We went in and saw that the elevator... More

Probably the best place we have ever stayed. Not a stitch out of place nor a condition not thought of. Clean, comfortable, modern, welcoming and warm. Speak many languages. Owner run (you can tell!) - this perfect accommodation in a perfect Florence location is not to be missed. The 1865 building with original fresco on the ceiling is in walking... More

My wife and I recently spent three wonderful nights during our honeymoon at this lovely hotel, and could not have been happier with our experience. Our room was beautiful, spacious and comfortable, and Michel and Cinzia were perfect hosts – gracious, available and eager to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and... More

I'm not normally a B&B type, but my friend suggested we give it a try and I'm not sure we could have picked a better place for our maiden voyage. The space is beautiful; well appointed and clean. It's in a quiet part of town but still close to all of the attractions you know and love. I've been to... More

Our B&B experience at 1865 was a major highlight of our trip to Italy. Not only is the venue location brillant and within an easy 15 minute walking distance of the centre of the city, the ambience of the place is amazing, especially the "fresco paitings" on the ceilings of some of the rooms. Our hosts, Michel and Cinzia were... More

My husband and I just got back from a 23 day trip to Italy, and this was by far our favorite place we stayed!! The rooms were incredibly comfortable, the location was great and I can not say enough wonderful things about Michel and the breakfast!! His scrambled eggs were perfect! Michel had wonderful recommendations for restaurants and made you... More

The 1865 Residenza d'epoca was a fantastic choice on our recent visit to Florence. Though not close to the City Center it was only a 10 minute walk to get to most landmarks. This made it nice at the end of the day to head back to our room without the hustle and bustle of the busy Florence city center.... More
