“Couldn't choose better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I spent 4 days in Florence traveling, eating, and drinking wine. Eduardo and his family were absolutely amazing. The moment I got there, Edo offered me a larger room then gave me a personal tour of his neighborhood. The B&B is located about 5-10 mins by bus to the center of Florence and the house itself has some very good stores and restaurants nearby. It was a great place to come back to after a full day of traveling and eating. I will def. be coming back to Florence with my girlfriend and will make sure to stay here again.

The really great thing about this B&B is the host, Edo. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and a genuinely nice guy. He definitely goes out of his way to make you feel welcome in his home. We had a slight issue with our reservation (our fault) but Edo took care of it like a gentlemen and always with a smile. The B&B is located outside of walking distance to the center (you can walk it but you won't be left with much energy once you reach the center) so its a short bus ride. I actually preferred the location of the B&B to the center as it had some authentic character unlike the disneyland that is Florence. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended if visiting Florence.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2013.
No wonder this is rated one of the top B and Bs in Florence.
The host, Edo and Celia, made you feel so welcomed and at home.
The room was clean and beautifully decorated. Welcome gifts including a bottle of wine. Edo went out of his way to give us orientation walk in the neighbourhood. His recommendation and guide for touring and dining were so perfect that we enjoyed every minute of our visit of this wonderful city.

Thank you Edo and Celia. In our mind, you do make Florence proud.

No frills but ever so warm and inviting - Edo, Celia, and the cute Jennifer are the perfect hosts! Edo is a fountain of Florence-related knowledge and is eager to make your stay the best possible. The location was perfect. We walked everywhere or took the bus on occasion. Our party occupied 2 rooms, both spacious and clean. Even though it was the holidays, Edo made sure we arrived to a spotless home and we really could not have asked for anything more.

We left with a promise to return. It was a really great experience to stay with this wonderful family!

Edo, Celia and Jennifer (their daughter) are warm, accommodating and wonderful hosts. The location is great, only a 10 minute walk from the historical center. The house is warm and homey, with large bathrooms and cute bedrooms. Upon arriving, Edo gave us a more than thorough introduction to the neighborhood, the transport and food options, and circled key points of interest on the map for us. We shared wine and food, and sat out talking on the back patio (even in the cold). All in all, we would highly recommend for a couple, a family, friend, or a solo traveler.

Arriving at Il Gilgio d'Oro was just a combination of all my expectations: the beautiful house, the rooms, romantically arranged, just as you dream about Florence...near everything, but giving you a space to enjoy the privilege of being in that beautiful environment.
Edo was always making us feel his own family, preparing mediterranean dinners at the nice courtyard, just to make guests meet each other and share the conversation with wine and laughs.
The cafes near the house are great, also the market.
This is absolutely the place I will recommend to all my friends.
Thank you Edo, Celia and Jennifer!
