Owners Michel and Cinzia have turned this 1865 historical Residence into modern accommodations without losing the authentic Florentine feel. The ceilings in every room have amazing original paintings. Our room had a very comfortable king bed and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower, bidet & toilet. Who needs a guide when you have this local couple? Cinzia gave us... More

My Wife and I spent 6 wonderful days with Michel & Cinzia, the hosts of 1865. This is a five star B&B, with the personal attention of the hosts for their guests, which is better than some of the 5 star international hotels. It was simply the best. The accommodation is extremely clean, comfortable and immaculate in its décor. At... More

What an amazing oasis!! Our stay was for 3 nights, however, we'd be more than happy to stay longer. Michel are Cinzia are the perfect hosts full of fabulous recommendations for tours, sights and more importantly restaurants. Breakfast was an amazing array of Italian continental delights aswell as Michel's homemade scrambled eggs and incredible Panna Cotta. And their coffee machine... More

We stayed 3 nights and our only disappointment was that we had to leave! We had two rooms, one for my husband and me and one for our kids (ages 13 and 18). The rooms were spacious, beautiful and comfortable. Cinzia and Michel were wonderful hosts. We really felt as if we were welcomed into their home. Cinzia provided lots... More

We spent the final night of our honeymoon at 1865 Residenza d'epoca and had a lovely time there. We received a really nice welcome from Cinzia who pointed us in the direction of local sights, and gave us useful info about an opera we wanted to see. The hotel was very clean with really nice decor, and felt very homely.... More

My husband and I stayed here about a week ago and absolutely loved our stay. The accommodations are immaculate with gorgeous décor that keeps the Italian renaissance alive (original frescoes on the ceilings)! Michel and Cinzia couldn't have been more attentive or helpful. I agree with other reviewers in that "1865 is what all hotels/B&Bs should aspire to be." I... More

My wife and I spent six nights in the 1865 Residenza d'epoca at the end of May 2014. We can confirm all the previous positive reviews. The hosts are caring and focused on their guests. We had the garden view room. It was spacious and quiet. Even so, the high quality windows they have assures privacy even on the street... More

1865 is what all hotels (or B&Bs) should aspire to be. The owners, Cinzia and Michel, are amazing hosts. From the moment we arrived we were treated in a lovely manner. Cinzia welcomed us and gave us a lovely introduction to the city and what to do and see. The room was lovely and even had a fresco on the... More

This is, by far, my most favorite “hotel” experience ever. I have used TripAdvisor for over 10 years now. When I come across a hotel that has very few bad reviews I tend to get skeptical. I’m glad I didn’t let that deter me from booking 1865. It really is that good! I booked 1865 directly through their website which... More
