Our favorite place during our trip to Europe! Spent 4 days in this comfortable, totally charming B&B. Our hostess, Marta, was sweet and so helpful with advice and recommendations, not only for getting around Florence, but also her knowledge & pride in her neighborhood guided us to several amazing trattorias, a very special day trip to Sienna, and more. The neighborhood is a lot of fun, and all of Florence's major attractions are easily walkable from Monte Oliveto. Thanks for a great experience, we would return in a heartbeat!

Wow wow wow!! I stayed here for 2 nights with my parents and we cannot stop talking about it!! It was the BEST experience. I miss it!! First of all, Donatella is a wonderful, intelligent, kind, and genuine hostess. She has that rare quality where it feels like you've known her forever. I mean seriously, it felt like I was visiting my aunt at her gorgeous home. That is the thing, it feels like home!! When we arrived in the middle of the day, Donatella welcomed us as if we have been friends our whole lives. She was so caring about my parents which meant so much to me because I had planned this trip at the last minute for them!! She made us tea and sat with us and gave us advice on where to go and what to do. Since there were three of us, I had booked us the top room. There are some stairs to go up to the top room, but Donatella noticed my parents are elderly and have a hard time with stairs so she was kind enough to give us a room on the main level so my parents wouldn't have to go up the stairs! And then she gave me my own room because it happened to be available!! HOW PERFECT AND KIND!!! The breakfast was straight out of a movie...a gorgeous setting with homemade treats and yumminess!!! The rooms are ADORABLE. It feels like you are in a country cottage, but you are really just right outside of the city! And the neighborhood is so quaint and cute and has the BEST restaurants. Donatella sent us off with treats and warm hugs. I miss her!! And I will definitely come back!! Stay here if you want to be in a perfect, magical, beautiful place with a down-to-earth homey vibe!! Ci Vediamo!!

My husband and I visited Florence the middle of October. We had stayed in Florence earlier in the month in a hotel close to the Ponte Vecchio. We decided when we returned that we would stay at this B&B. It was a wonderful decision. Marta is the owner. She is very kind. She helped us with recommendations on new things to see and favorite restaurants in the area of town where the B&B is located. The accommodations were great. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a nice size. Each morning Marta greeted us at the breakfast table. The food was delicious. She sat and visited and drank her tea with the guests as we ate. We would recommend a stay at this B&B.

Had a great stay at this place! Location is perfect for anybody to visit places of their interests. And Marta the property owner has been a wonderful guide letting us know where and how to go to places and where to buy things too. Above all she has been a wonderful hostess for us! Each morning she would be with us talking with her great spread of breakfast! A very sweet lady indeed! Felt like we were at home!

We loved the B&B Monte Oliveto! Marta brought so much more to the experience than just a place to stay. My husband and I enjoyed having breakfast with other guests in the morning, we valued Marta's wisdom about how to spend our time, and we loved the location. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the beautiful neighborhood along our journey. Marta went above and beyond by being very attentive to our every need, plus she went out of her way to fix a problem I created when I left my purse upon our departure. The room was just right, we wanted the attached bathroom, the balcony was perfect and the air conditioning was greatly valued. We have been blessed to travel to many international cities and have enjoyed different experiences of chain hotels, B&Bs and boutique hotels. Marta's story and her place was one of the very bests!! Best wishes for a great trip!!
