I will echo the sentiments of the previous reviewers, as there is not much else to add. The glowing reviews, which were a significant reason why I booked this property, were spot on. My wife and I, who stayed at 1865 in February, had a fantastic experience. Michel and Cinzia do a wonderful job there and have a truly beautiful... More

The moment I stepped out of the elevator, had a ‘peep’ into the reception area and greeted by the elegant hostess Cinzia I knew that all the wonderful reviews I have been reading on Trip Advisor must be true. Apart from historic building, beautiful decos, ancient frescos on the ceilings, modern facilities, delicious breakfast, welcoming hosts, it is the miraculous... More

I can honestly says 1865 Residenzia d'epoca is one of the nicest places we have stayed, from the charming and helpful hosts to the beautiful and comfortable rooms. It is a place with real style and is run with a genuine generosity by the hosts. Although in a quite residential area, it is close to places to eat and drink... More

We had a wonderful stay at the 1865 Residenza d'epoca in January. Michel and Cinzia were delightful hosts treating as if we were family friends. We enjoyed a fantastic breakfast that we looked forward to everyday along with a warm and comfortable spot to base our florence experience. Cinzia said they sleep like angels in this house and she is... More

There's not much more to add to overwhelming praises of the previous reviewers. Everything I have read on TA was absolutely true. There are numerous charming and amazing B&B's in Florence. However, there's a reason why 1865 consistently is rated #1. We were lucky enough to book two rooms for us and our friends right next to each other for... More

Perfect location, charming hosts, comfortable bed and amazing touches through out the hotel, what more could you want? Everything was done first class. At breakfast the linens were immaculate and the food was superb. Home made panacotta for breakfast? Of course, you are on vacation in Italy! Our room was perfect. High ceilings painted with a fresco, nice linens, and... More

This lovely home away from home is really a jewel. Its location in the city is excellent, but the welcome we received from our hosts from the moment we arrived until our stay ended was wonderful. We learned more than where to eat, what to visit, etc., we also enjoyed thoughtful, unhurried conversations with our hosts about Florence's history. The... More

My wife and I have just returned from Florence. A very good friend recommended 1865 Residenza d'Epoca . This boutique hotel which has 5 bedrooms is in the center of Florence making it accessible to so many places in Florence on foot. The furnishings are beautiful, with frescoes on the ceiling makes your temporary home feel special. When you arrive... More

What a delight for us to find this amazing personal hotel. We really appreciated the welcome and information provided by our host. The suite itself was beautifully presented, luxurious, spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. The furnishings tasteful and of a high quality. There were chocolates and bottled water within the suite and other creature comforts were available in the living... More

My wife and I visited the 1865 Residenza d'epoca after reading reviews on Trip advisor and bookings.com and thought it sounded like the perfect place to stay in Florence during our Italian Honeymoon. Suffice to say this Bed and Breakfast was everything we hoped for and more and the three nights we stayed here were by far our most pleasant... More
