We stayed in 1865 Residenza in July. My husband and I loved everything about this place. We met Michel and Cinzia, a gorgeous couple who own and manage the hotel. They took care of us perfectly, it has become our home for a few days. There are only 5 rooms, and our room was so spacious, and amazingly decorated with... More

Before we start, a few things about us: 1) we never make decisions without doing extensive research; 2) we love food; and 3) we like things to be immaculately clean (thanks to our mom’s Japanese upbringing). Given this, the fact that 1865 Residenza d’epoca exceeded our expectations just might be something to be recognized. Michel and Cinzia are wonderful hosts:... More

We stayed in the purple room and it was quite spectacular. My wife and I were in Florence for 4 nights on vacation with our newborn child and we stayed here. Our expectations were completely exceeded and we had a wonderful stay. The family is very warm and welcoming and they provide you a very personal experience. The breakfast is... More

I think from now on every time if I go to Firenze, this is my choice. Cinzia & Michel is a lovely couple, who have very good taste to set up such a nice boutique hotel, it's like a hidden gem in Firenze, not tourist centre, away from chaos but easy to access every key place. I spent great days... More

My husband and I visited Florence this July and stayed at the Residenza where owners/hosts, Cinzia and Michel were waiting for us upon our arrival. They are warm and hospitable. We felt as if we were staying with old friends. Michel ensures that your morning breakfast is to your liking and really goes the extra mile. The location is excellent,... More

Couldn't ask for a better place. The owners are so nice, knowledgeable and will give you the best of Florence without pretension! They also speak many languages and will make you feel comfortable without being overbearing. And the room! We stayed at the Henry James room, beautifully decorated with frescoed ceiling, clawfoot tub and big shower, great king size bed,... More

The 1865 Residenzia D’epoca is undoubtedly a remarkable place to stay in Florence. It’s quirky, full of character and it has a true boutique hotel feel to it – when you come through the doors you know you are in for something special. The building dates back to 1865 and the renovation to reconvert the floor space took over 3... More

We booked 1865 Residenza d'epoca based on reviews here on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! If you are going to Florence and would like a stay in a wonderful B&B that is in a relatively quiet area, this is the place for you. First the accommodations - the place is a thoroughly modernized large apartment from the 1800s. You... More

This bed & breakfast tops my list of places to stay in Italy. Besides its comfort and central location the service and attention to every detail exemplifies how all b&b's should be run. Our hosts could not have been nicer and more helpful with all of our needs. Breakfast was delicious, served with a friendly smile everyday. If you are... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel, more of a B&B than hotel. It has just a few rooms and is located in a residential neighborhood in what looks like an apartment building. The place is beautifully decorated and the husband and wife team take great care of their guests. Our room had the original mural painted in the 1800's on... More

Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
