We stayed here for 4 nights in April. The location was perfect the room was clean and the breakfast was lovely, especially the coffee from the lovely barista. I had to run out the door for a tour at 6.45am one morning and a staff member saw me and gave me a banana and water to take on my travels....

Family, friends and I recently spent 10 days at the Guelfo Bianco, which turned out to be a most pleasant and enjoyable experience. The accommodations were exceptional and the attendants most cordial. The hotel is family owned and managed and their close attention to daily operation is evident in every detail, to include the restaurant, bar and all related amenities....

We had three couples for 3 nights each having a junior suite. . All the rooms were all different but all roomy with high ceilings and a bit quirky. At first glance, I was a bit hesitant but quickly warmed up to the quirkiness. The front desk staff is great with good suggestion on restaurants and sights.. The location is...

Excellent location, comfortable room with lovely old furniture, lots of original art all over the place, super breakfasts, and best, such friendly staff. Located five minutes walk from the duomo, and five from San Marco (Fra Angelico frescos) but still quiet. Restaurant serves excellent organic meals (and vegetarian). Ate there twice but menu would be good for a few days...

Interesting hotel in the center of town Location: This hotel is located walking distance to the train station, academia, Duomo and many shops. That being said, it can be rather a busy area so if you’re sensitive to noise, you’ve been warned. Service: The hotel staff was short to impress as first but when we needed help with the pharmacy,...

Il Guelfo Bianco is a lovely, lovely boutique hotel. We stayed for 4 nights. It is immaculate, and tastefully decorated. Lots of amazing artwork is displayed throughout. The assistance we received from the front desk was wonderful, both before we arrived, and during our visit. Breakfast included pastry, cold cuts and cheese, yogurt, fruit, eggs, and more.

Dear Dellison14521, thanks very much for your review and for your nice words about our staff. Regarding that morning you cannot imagine how we were all dismayed when we discovered at 7,30 am that the hotel was completely out of water. Luckily our plumber could arrive immediately here and solve the problem in a couple of hours (an electronic failure)....

Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
