We loved every minute in this Hotel. It's for couples looking for something special which isn't expensive. The location is great and the staff was all extremely nice and gave great recommendations.
Make sure to visit Toti restaurant which was just down the road.
Please note the breakfast wasn't that great BUT we still highly recommend the Hotel.

I always felt at home in Italy. Perhaps because of my love of beauty. Beautiful country, beautiful language, kind, generous people. This time my experience of Italy, where I brought my 12 year old daughter on an "art history tour" as she is an art student, was enhanced by the incredible discovery of Antica Dimora Johlea. It is a place that combines discretion, elegance, comfort and hospitality. It is very well priced, in a fantastic location, perfect comfort, no frills, with friendly sophisticated staff and homy atmosphere. You have a library with great books on Florence, Italian Art, guides, etc...a bar to serve yourself, free tea, coffee, cookies and fruit, free wireless access...Just all you need to feel free to concentrate on history and culture of this incredible town. A big thank you!

We had a great time with this hotel. It's perfectly located in the city - walking distance to everything touristy. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable & very genuine. Breakfast is basic - but this worked well for us - as we tended to gorge ourselves for the rest of the day!

My wife and I spent a few days in Florence while traveling through Italy earlier this month. I folund Antica Joleah on Trip Advisor and I was really blown away.

The location could not be any better. Five minute walk to the Academia to see the David, 8 minute walk to the Duomo and the heart of historic Flofence, and 10 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and the Santa Croce areas.

There are only a few rooms. All are canopy beds that are decorated perfectly and very comfortable and clean.

There is a beautiful living room area for guests to relax and read a book or enjoy a glass of wine. Wine, beer, cocktails, and cafe are available in the living room area through an honor bar setup that is very reasonbly priced.

On the top level there is a rooftop deck that overlooks all of Florence. Simply beautiful. There is comfortable seating for guests to relax. I took a ton of picture while on the roof. Saw an amazing sunset.

Breakfast is provided daily and is included in the rate. They had a nice selection of pastries, meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, and juices, etc daily. A great way to start your day before exploring Florence.

I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was a fantastic visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. They have different color themes etc, but are equally comfortable and beaut...

We just got back from a lovely three night stay at Antica Dimora Johlea. Location perfect. Room was stylish, clean and wonderful, and we were surprised how near we were to the centre but without the hustle and bustle of being too close. The staff were very accommodating, and with breakfast either inside or on the roof terrace under the sun with a wonderful view of the Duomo, Antica Dimora Johlea is simply not one to miss!

Spent two nights in Florence in September and the Antica Dimora Johlea was perfect. Great location, about 10 mins walk to all the attractions but far enough away to give you a bit of peace and quiet at the end of the day. Plenty of restaurants/trattorias along the street if you didn't want to wander into town in the evening. The staff were fantastic and couldn't help enough when you wanted it but let you get on with it when you wanted some time to yourself. The living area upstairs, complete with sofas, books, coffee and an honesty bar made it feel like a home away from home, and the roof terrace was fantastic to sit and enjoy a beer or two in the evening, watching the sun set over the duomo and sights of Florence. The room was full of character and the beautifully furnished. Will definitely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Harmonious, elegant, and full of light, this Florentine residence is situated on the top floor of a beautiful 19th-century palazzo. The rooms, all uniquely designed and decorated, have walls in soft hues of natural earth and mineral pigments. The curtains and the canopies of the four-poster beds are made out of precious oriental silk, while pure linen from Florence's renowned, artisan fabric manufacturer, Antica Tessitoria Busatti, is used to decorate the breakfast hall and living rooms. The bathrooms are done in Carrara marble or in hand-painted tiles. Perhaps the nicest surprise, however, is the rooftop terrace, from which you will be able to admire Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's bell tower, the crenellated silhouette of Palazzo Vecchio, and the magnificent bird's eye view of Florence's historic center. ... more   less
