My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this place! If you look for something special, this is the place to choose: romantic furniture, great view from the Roof top and very Kind and helpful staff! A very early check in of 8:30 a.m. is possible. The residence is in the 3rd floor and you´ll get your own keys... More

My husband and I finished our stay in Europe at this charming B & B. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was decorated so uniquely and had so much personality.

We are just about to check out of this charming residence. It is sort of a cross between a B+B and a hotel with only a small number of rooms but many of the hotel facilities. The bedrooms are charming, cosy and authentic, each air-conditioned (which has been a blessing in this heat) and hostng generous 4 poster beds, period... More

Good friends had stayed at Antica Dimora Johlea and recommended it when we were planning our trip to Florence. We were not looking for, or expecting a fancy hotel.

So I have debated where I would grade this one. By mega-hotel standards it's very poor...it has no facilities and is not massively central, there are only 4 or 5 rooms, all of which are very small...the bathrooms are tiny and are shower only...breakfast is included but is just bread, meat and drinks...when we arrived late due to flight delays...

We had a wonderful stay at antica dimora johlea. Everything was perfect - from the spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, the convenient location near the acadamia, duomo and great restaurants (yet far enough away from the crowds), the serene rooftop deck overlooking the city and surrounding hillside and the gracious hospitality and recommendations.

This was a nice, reasonably priced bed and breakfast outside of Florence's busiest center (a good walking distance from the Duomo and a little closer to the Academia Museum). The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. Our group of 7 had half of the rooms in the B&B - two doubles and a triple. Some of us had better AC... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Harmonious, elegant, and full of light, this Florentine residence is situated on the top floor of a beautiful 19th-century palazzo. The rooms, all uniquely designed and decorated, have walls in soft hues of natural earth and mineral pigments. The curtains and the canopies of the four-poster beds are made out of precious oriental silk, while pure linen from Florence's renowned, artisan fabric manufacturer, Antica Tessitoria Busatti, is used to decorate the breakfast hall and living rooms. The bathrooms are done in Carrara marble or in hand-painted tiles. Perhaps the nicest surprise, however, is the rooftop terrace, from which you will be able to admire Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's bell tower, the crenellated silhouette of Palazzo Vecchio, and the magnificent bird's eye view of Florence's historic center. ... more   less
