We had a fantastic stay at Donatellas B&B in Florence. The house is located in a quiet street, perfect walking distance to the city center. Donatella is a very generous host who knows a lot about her city and will give good recommendations on what to do, restaurants etc. She also make a excellent breakfast. We would recommend Monte Oliveto... More

I am writing this review with still a day remaining so I don't forget a single thing about how wonderful our stay here has been! We always like to stay at B&B's rather than faceless hotels so you get a chance to meet and interact with the owners,and what welcoming and charming people they are too. You couldn't want for...

I decided to stay at B&B Monte Oliveto while visiting Florence based on prior TripAdvisor reviews, and was quite pleased. Donatella and Niccolo gave me a welcome when I arrived; thereupon they took some time to learn about my interests so that they could provide suggestions. The B&B is located on the quieter side south of the Arno, about a... More

We enjoyed it a lot in this nice and quiet B&B. Nicolo gave a warm welcome (Antonella was on a trip to Southern Italy) and lots of interesting informations about Florence. The big room leading to the back of the house was very clean and quiet with a big terrace. From there you have a nice view over the garden... More

I chose this B&B on the strength of the number of positive reviews and I was not disappointed. Although I missed meeting Donatella, my hostess Antonella could not have been friendlier or more helpful during my stay! My room was lovely and comfortable (with a real mattress, not the slab of concrete I slept on in Padua). Once I mastered... More

My wife and I had an excellent experience staying at Monte Oliveto. We stayed in the Mansarda Loft which had a very nice terrace where we enjoyed drinks at night, it was so quiet and relaxing. The loft also has a small kitchen which came in handy for us. What really sets this place above others is the hostess, Donatella.... More

What else is there to say about this gem of a B&B that numerous other people have not said already! The location is brilliant, situated about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Florence in the residential area, and importantly if you are driving, located outside the ZTL. Donatella, the hostess is brilliant. We were greeted with a beaming... More

You won't just want to stay here with the delightful Donatella, you will want to move in and live here. The location in the artisan quarter is so convenient for walking to any number of attractions.
