“Brilliant Florentine B and B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This was my second time at Johanna. It's a lovely b and b, warm and friendly with lovely big rooms and great decoration and a very relaxed atmosphere. You you feel welcome and at home instantly. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is good. They serve an excellent buffet breakfast and there are drinks and snacks on hand all day long. Being english we were particularly pleased with this, as a nice cup of tea is essential after a long day of sight seeing! We will be back!

We stayed 5 days at Residenza Johanna I. It is located in a quite street, in an old Italian apartment house in the middle of Florence.
Our room and bathroom was very nice, decorated with antique Italian furniture, a four-poster bed and air condition.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, we got some great recommendations for sight-seeing, shopping and restaurants. (You should definitely try Tito´s Osteria which is just around the corner!)
Tea, coffee and cake is available free of charge the whole day, breakfast is good.
Not far away from the city center and you can reach all tourist attractions within walking distance. Also, the Botanical Garden is just around the corner, if you need a break from the tourist routine. We enjoyed Florence and our stay at Residenza Johanna a lot and would definitely come back.

you feel like home in Florence. Very clean and antique style.
Could be a little closer to central Florence but 15 min walking you get there.
Nice service and staff.
The bathroom is too tiny but the room was fine.

Don't be put off by the entrance... this hotel is located on the first floor of a townhouse so not the easiest to immediately find. But it's clean, well located and the room had air con (a must for Italy in summer). Breakfast was adequate; fairly standard I think (criossants...etc.) and the welcome was warm. Tea, coffee and cake available at all time which was great for those nibbles. Bathroom was a little small and shower wasn't that powerful; tv was small. All in all, a good stay with no frills.

I went to Residenza Johanna I after 4 days at Rome and I got a stunning experience of Firenze (Florence) starting from this B&B. Beautifuly decorated, we started by getting an upgrade to our room with no extra charge. The hole hotel is well decorated in a classical style, in a quiet neighborhood at 7 min. short walk to the main atractions (almost all by the river). You take San Gallo street from here and after a short walk you're at the middle of all the action. You can even get free cake by the time you return tired from sightseeing! Definitely our best hotel experience after our trip around Rome-Firenze-Pisa-Tuscany. Highly recommended!
