We recently stayed at Bellevue House based primarily on the great reviews that we had read…our expectations were not only met but exceeded by a lovely family run operation of Luciano, Suzie and Alessandro who are very well suited to the hospitality industry, their service is excellent!
Our room was quite lovely, very large and comfortable and well furnished. Pretty much everything you would need was either in the room or available on request, even the entrance sitting area near the reception area was cosy and inviting. There were maps and tourist information available, books to read and the knowledge of the area that was offered was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for this family who made you feel very welcome! Luciano, with his knowledge of people in the industry, was even able to assist us with booking other accommodation in Rome.
All the galleries and most things people go to Florence to see are within walking distance and the main train station is just 5 minutes away.
Overall we had a great stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends and family, and also to all those out there in the TripAdvisor community!
PS: A quick note to remember the 3 flights of stairs, but once again assistance was offered by Alessandro to help carry our bags both on arrival and departure.
