We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bellevue House during our recent trip to Italy. At arrival and throughout the trip, Alessandro was more than helpful, answering our questions and providing wonderful suggestions. The B&B is easy to find and the location is great! We were renting a car in Florence, so it was nice to be so close to... More

If you have mobility issues there is no elevator and there are a... More

The innkeepers are incredibly nice and helpful, and the location is convenient to the train station and the sites. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, with room safes. Only 6 rooms. Only drawback is lack of an elevator, as the inn is three long flights up. No breakfast, but a mini-fridge in your room. A laundry mat across the street... More

Very good location! 5 mins walk to the railway station, and Alessandro helped carry the big suitcase so you don't have to worry about the no-lift thing. He recommended several places for breakfast, lunch and dinner around the neighborhood. All worth it. We love the place next door for a quick and yummy breakfast! They also have a lot other... More

I have stayed at the Bellevue House for several years and have been there during the two previous summers, when the ownership changed. I am pleased to say that it is the same charming place to stay that it has been for years. It is ideally located near the main train station near Santa Maria Novella from which many buses... More

Alessandro went out of his way to help me, as I arrived in Florence with a severely sprained ankle. He even took my bags all the way to the train station upon departure and waited with us for the train. During the stay he waited up to provide ice for my ankle in the evening. His knowledge of the city... More

This calm and wecoming B & B near Santa Maria Novella rail station is perfectly located for exploring Florence - the whole of Florence is within walking distance. We were welcomed by Alessandro who carried our bags up from street level and settled us in in our spacious room. He also gave us good advice on the best places to... More

My husband and I spent our last night in Italy in this little hotel near the train station. The hotel was located on the 4th floor of an old building. The owner's son, Allesandro, carried our bags up the stairs. The room was spacious with a sink and shower and mini fridge with an electric kettle for making tea and... More

The customer service was outstanding. Worth its weight in gold. Luciano and Alessandro looked after us so well. I cannot speak highly enough of the commitment to making guests welcomed, providing helpful information with local restaurants, tours and directions in the vicinity. Felt safe and happy at Bellevue House. Thank you, Luciano and Alessandro for a wonderful stay.
