This small family-run pension is located on a quiet side street near the train station and within 10 to 20 minutes walk to most major sights in Florence. Bellevue House occupies the top floor of a older building which means a climb of 91 steps - but it is so worth it. We stayed for 4 nights in the spacious,... More

We always prefer to stay family owned hotels in such historical small cities. First of all it is just next door main train station and one block away from car rental offices avis budget etc. 10 mins walk away from republicca square and almıst same to other places. Owner Alessandro gives all necessary info about restaurants, ice cream shops etc.... More

A very homely little hotel run by a friendly family. There are 3 flights of stairs to climb before arriving at the hotel door, the staff are happy to assist with cases if you buzz from downstairs. Upon check in, we were given a map and some very useful local information including restaurants recommendations. Our room was clean and spacious... More

Very close to the train station (5 minute walk) easy to find. Friendly/family run place, with lots of information, and great advice on real Italian restaurants. Like everyone else said there is a flight of stairs to climb in order to gain access to the entrance, but not a problem, and it adds to make the rooms quiet and peaceful.... More

Stayed at the Bellevue House for two nights and would highly recommend for a Florence City stay. Bellevue House is located a less than 10min walk from the train station and less than 15 minutes away from the Duomo, city centre and restaurants. We were rung by the owners with directions to the hotel prior to arrival and it was... More

Everthing is great, the location is super closed to the train station. Plus there are many nice restaurants in singht. Strongly recommend whomever wants a decent city walking tour and reasonable rent. PS: The staff are very friendly as well

Great stay, easy walk from SMN train station, ~10 minutes walk to the Duomo etc. Huge room. Proprietor had some restaurant recommendations near the hotel but just outside the main tourist areas, which turned out to be great. Only catch is hotel is on third floor, with no elevator. No problem for us but might be for some, although the... More

We are so glad to have our first review we have ever written for TripAdvisor be for the Bellevue House, and it's owners Allesandro and his father Luciano! Before we had even reserved the room, Allesandro wrote a customized informative e mail giving us much information that was helpful in confirming that we wanted to stay at the Bellevue House....

I booked this hotel for next year for my mother and I, however what I didn't realise was that the hotel was located on a high floor; and my mother was unable to climb the steps. After requesting a lower floored room, unknowingly due to my own fault that this wasn't possible, I received a personal email from the manager... More

Genuine hospitality! Don't be fooled by the exterior; the interior is a delight. We loved the Victoria room. Enjoyed our meals at their recommended restaurants. Took their advice regarding the sights of Florence. (Loved the olive shower/bath lotion!) Great location! We will return. Thank you for adding to our Italian memories!
