My daughter and I spent a wonderful 5 days in this beautiful bed and breakfast.Our room was very spacious and we so enjoyed staring at the amazing fresco ceiling.It is situated in a quiet residential area,which is appreciated after a busy day exploring the wonderful city of Florence.The breakfast are delicious and my daughter and I slept in on several mornings and and were accommodated with breakfast when we got up not expected but certainly appreciated.I highly recommend this beautiful place to stay and enjoy everything that is Florence.

This small hotell 5, rooms, were a very pleasant experience. The owner didn't what to do the best for us in the stay, and the full service was available all the time. We felt like home. A small distance to walk to the city centre, but not more than a good stroll.
A highly recommendable place to stay.

Michel and Cynthia received us warmly and made us feel at home in their elegant establishment. Breakfast was something to look forward to and we ate with such gusto and relished everything that was offered to us. The dining room was so elegant and so was the setting of the dining table. Indeed, one must take seriously suggestions by Michel on where to dine and what sights to see. AquaCotta is a small family restaurant that is within a very short walking distance with reasonable prices and a varied menu. We loved the cuisine so much that we returned repeatedly. Service was excellent too.

First and foremost we have to say that the hospitality we received before and once we had arrived was second to none.

The decor and thought that has gone into creating 1865 Residenza d'epoca is unbelievable and you really feel you are part of renaissance Florence. Its perfectly placed for all amenities and prior to exploring Florence each day we started with a wonderful breakfast prepared by Michel. This beats staying at any hotel not only because it is wonderfully designed but the service we received we have only ever experienced in a small number of very exclusive hotels where we have paid triple the price per night!

If you're visiting Florence this place is a must. If we could give it more than 5 stars we would ..

A completely different approach than a hotel: more bed and breakfast experience but so personalised and unique.
The rooms are absolutely fabulous and please listen to all the tips that the owners give you (restaurants, things to know about Florence, travel tips,...)
We will surely go again there and recommend it very strongly!

Staying in 1865 is a fantastic memory. Michel and Cynthia are the best host. They provide the best advice and nice service during our vacation in Firenze. Definitely I will choose 1865 again for the next Firenze trip!

You will not go wrong by choosing this lovely guest home. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. You will fall asleep at night gazing at original frescoes on the ceilings. Michel and Cinzia are the perfect hosts, willing to help you with all you needs. To begin your day, breakfast is a perfect array of pastries, meats, fruit and delicious eggs. To end your perfect day in Florence, there is coffee, chocolate and a good nightcap. The Residenza d'epoca is truly delightful place!
