“Very good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We booked all the rooms in this hotel for one nigh as a transition from a cruise to a villa rental for a large group. They were very helpful leading up to our visit and contacted us a number of times to update arrangements. They booked reservations for the Academia for us and they recommended the best restaurant we ate at on our 1 month long trip "Antica Trattoria da Tito (get them to book a reservation for you before you arrive). The hotel is different by our standard (north american) a bit eccentric but very comfortable. The first thing you notice when you arrive is there is no reception that you can see, we rang a bell several times before a housekeeper came down the stairs to direct us to the second floor up the stairs (only use the elevator for your bags) All of the main sights in Florence are within easy walking distance. The staff are very helpful and friendly we would stay here again.

We were there 3 nights in late Sept 2012. Facility was good, room & bathroom was spacious and clean, breakfasts were also good. Having the "honor" bar/fridge was appreciated since the staff are not there 24 hours. We found them very friendly & helpful. Location was good, a few blocks outside the main tourist area. The only deficiency noted was the stained quilt cover which should be replaced.

convenient location, good breakfast and 'honour bar', 24 coffee/tea/water/snacks, short walk to train and city center, friendly helpful staff, free computer for guest use and a historic building all make for a good value. only downside was that although the bathroom was quite large, the shower was a bit tiny--don't drop the soap as you may have difficulty picking it up!
thumbs aloft!!

My friend and I stayed at Residenza Johlea the 1st week of October '12. We chose one of the larger rooms (room #1) since we were going to be there for 4 nights. We were not disappointed. The furnishings were nice and the bathroom was large and clean. The breakfasts were simple but good as was the honor bar/fridge and pastries and biscotti left during the day. We loved the location. It was only a 10 min walk to the Duomo area in a very quiet section of the San Lorenzo neighborhood. Even though our room faced the street, it was not noisy at night. We also appreciated the little elevator to help with our luggage. Giovanna and Laura were kind enough to make dinner reservations for us prior to our arrival. We would certainly recommend this B&B for your stay in Florence.

The best option for staying in Firenze, for sure.
Big but cozy rooms, very silent, and the most helpfull staff I've ever seen. As soon as you arrive they give you a map with intructions on how to arrive to all atractions, on a perfect English.
They were so receptive that made me feel like home.
Very well located, too. Couldn't be better.

We spent two nights in this lovely hotel recently. We arrived earlier then the check-in time and were still welcomed by a smiling and very helpful landlady. She showed us everything we needed to know about the hotel and kindly let us leave our luggage in our room in spite it was not ready yet. When we returned later it was totally transformed. The room was individually decorated, cozy with little treats and the bed was very comfortable. There was plenty for breakfast too. There is also a computer at the reception which can be used by the guests free of charge. The location is very good, only a short walk to the historic town. Our room faced the courtyard, therefore it was very quiet. We highly recommend this little hotel to anyone.
