We were given a recommendation from a friend to stay at Il Guelfo Bianco, and we are so glad we listened. It is in a great location- on a quiet street but about a 4 minute walk to the Duomo. When you go down the road the opposite way of the Duomo, there is an incredible restaurant recommended by the hotel staff that has an incredible Bistecca Florentina. They don't speak much English there, but it was great to dine with the locals.
The staff at Il Guelfo was mostly very helpful. We enjoyed our welcome drink and appetizer plate on our first night. It's a nice touch when you're just starting to settle in. The room was great and cleaned impeccably every morning. The breakfast was certainly plentiful.
When you're in possibly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, please stay at this hotel. You won't regret it.
