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. We wanted a more personal neighborhood kind of experience. We had been traveling for about 24 hours when our taxi dropped us in front of Antica Dimora Johlea. We saw a... More

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. We are accustomed to staying in top... More

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

Antica Dimora Johlea is a nice B and B in Florence. My wife and I stayed there for three nights in June. It's located about 15 minutes walking from the Duomo. The walk is actually pretty interesting, there is some shopping that is fun and off the beaten path. The B and B is located on the upper floors of... More

My friend and I just returned from our first trip to Florence. What a delight to have accommodations of such high quality and so charming.

Florence is, of course, a most beautiful city but it can also be exhausting. The Antica Dimora Johlea is a most wonderful base from which to explore. It is only a 15 minute walk from the railway station and yet is in a quieter area of the city. It is most tastefully decorated and furnished and the air conditioning keeps... 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
