Had a great stay at this place. It is truly a gem! If you like a boutique kind of place with few rooms and great service this is your place. From the beginning Michel was super welcoming and helpful. The location is really good, and you can find all modern facilities in the room, something not that common when traveling... More

My husband and I traveled through Europe on our honeymoon and this was our FAVORITE accommodation out of everywhere we stayed. The rooms are modern, beautiful and very clean. We traveled in early September and having air condition in our room was perfect. I felt as though I was staying in a 5 star hotel. Michel and Cinzia who own... More

Michael warmly welcomed us upon our arrival and gave us wonderful advice on what to see and do in Florence, as well as how to get around and where to eat. The rooms themselves are outrageously lovely and they speak to the refined age of the building itself. The amenities were also outstanding. The shower was beautifully designed, the bed... More

This place is amazing; fabulous rooms, very comfortable beds, original ceiling frescoes, modern and well-stocked bathrooms, overall excellent cleanliness, great breakfast, beautiful ambience, gracious and accommodating hosts who were always available etc. etc. the list goes on… It is short walk to the city center, major attractions and good...

Breakfast on the top floor at large formal table with waiter! Very beautiful, with Abba playing while we ate our eggs, bacon, yogurt, fruit plate and cake, and awesome... More

Fabulous place to stay while in Florence! Excellent location, very tranquil and yet close to activities. Michel and Cinzia were most welcoming upon arrival and took exceptional care of us throughout our stay. The room was modern, spacious and luxurious with a beautiful view of the garden. Look forward to returning, this will be our "go-to" place while in Florence.

Even better than we imagined....this would be how I'd describe our experience @ 1865 ! The Hosts are warm, generous and caring people who genuinely go out of their way to assist you.

My husband and I both work/have worked in high end service/restaurant/hospitality industries in NYC for over 20 years, so we are fairly critical when we travel. We were only able to book our first two nights at 1865 and were not sure where we would stay in Florence our third night. Upon our arrival, we learned there was a vacancy... More

What a fantastic find. Close to the city centre while being in a quieter and more authentic neighbourhood. Incredibly helpful hosts in Cinzia and Michel. Very stylish rooms with lovely bedding and bathrooms (ours had a fantastic original fresco on the ceiling). And lovely touches like a good coffee machine and Vin Santo and cantuccini left out in the communal... More
