Bellevue House is an exceptional value and a wonderful place to stay in Florence. Steps from the train and within easy walking distance of all major sites. Allesandro is a wealth of information about dining and cultural activities. And he could not be more helpful in such useful things as arranging a cab to the airport and securing museum reservations... More

We stayed at Bellevue House five nights in June. We stayed in the Fiorenza room and added a single bed which gave us space for our kids (18 & 20 years old). One slept on the sofa bed and the other in the singe. Even with the added bed the room was spacious. There are double windows/shutters that keep out... More

Staying at Bellevue House was a wonderful experience! Alessandro's advice regarding local, authentic (and reasonably priced) restaurants and recommendations for activities was invaluable! We were able to experience things that we would have never found on our own, like hearing Mass said in Latin at an out of the way monastery. The room was very clean, comfortable and perfect for...

It's located just 2 blocks from the main train station and a five minute walk from the Duomo. The hotel is run by a small family consisting of an older couple and their son. The... More

Although this is a small hotel and you have to climb three stories, this is a very pleasant place to stay. The family owning the hotel helped to get tickets to the very important art museums. The room was clean, quiet and had a good bathroom as well as air conditioning.

Located 2 blocks from Florence's Santa Maria Train station and within walking distance to many major sights in Florence, Bellevue House is very quiet and peaceful. Its old fashioned decoration and furnishing and kind and helpful owners made us feel like we were staying at an old aunt' s house. Our family of four stayed 2 nights here in the... More

We stayed at Bellevue House 3 nights the last week in May, 2014. Of the 6 places we stayed, this was the best. Run by a wonderful family, all of whom speak English and are eager to help with anything. Beautiful large room, large clean bathroom, comfortable bed, electric kettle and instant coffee in the room. It's a quiet oasis.... More
