Since opening in 1989, Il Guelfo Bianco Hotel has been constantly evolving but it is only now, after several improvements made in the last 10 years, that we can say that it has a brand new face. After the last renovation rooms are all with parquet. The bedrooms, large and luminous, have all been decorated with antique furniture, artisan draperies and important pieces of contemporary art. Many of these are also present in the common areas. Attention to detail is given to each bedroom whether a single or a De Luxe - the differentiation in category (Executive, Superior, De Luxe or Junior Suite) is based purely on size. The range of accommodation types available allows us to satisfy the multiple needs of our guests, many of whom have contributed with their suggestions over the years, to the final décor of the bedrooms. Our motto is and has always been to improve in such a way to often pleasantly surprise our regular guests; we dont expect to be ‘the first nor ‘the best but we certainly consider our hotel easily distinguishable. All of the improvements have been made with the intent to maintain the original welcoming atmosphere intact; the evolutions have allowed us to upgrade from a friendly nest to a comfortable and warm cradle. a lovely bistro restaurant "IL DESCO" is available from 1200 til 3pm and again from 6,30 to 10,30 pm with seasonal menu with many organic products. Sundays close for dinner. (the restaurant at the moment is closed)

I first stayed here several years ago and enjoyed the hotel and the people who work there so much that I stayed again on this trip. This hotel is so charming and interesting with all the artwork throughout all the hallways and common areas. They are meticulous in maintaining the rooms, which are often filled with antiques. The breakfast buffet is extensive with good food choices. All the staff, including management, front desk, breakfast servers, and cleaning crew are wonderful and so friendly and helpful. It is so easy to walk anywhere you want to go in Florence from here - everything is close. I will always stay here on any future trips to Florence.

Dear Ljf5960, we are so happy you stayed here agian after several years and you have confirmed your positive opinio about us. The last two years have been really hard with all the "stop and go" due to the pandemic. During the closing periods we made improvements to the hotel and finished the restyling of the rooms (now all with parquet) and you thanks for noticing the meticulous maintenance. Finalòy on May 14th we reopen even our cozy bistrot "Il Desco"; We continue to always offer high quality products, many of which are organic and all dishes prepared by our chef Luca. We have added happy hour from 17 to 20 (to let you taste a drink with tastings from the chef) or a dinner with a less rigid menu with cutting boards, salads, tartare, lasagna and excellent desserts. Opening hours from Tuesday to Saturday from 5pm to 10pm. Well we hope to welcoem you here again and again :-) Take care and bye bye Antonella and all the team

A group of six of us stayed at the IL Guelfo Bianco Hotel before and after a bike trip in Tuscany in April /May 2022. What a terrific hotel! Great central location, quiet rooms (the ones on the interior of the hotel), tasty and generous breakfast and yummy capucinni. The rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. In-room fridges and safes. A special note goes to the staff at the front desk. They were all so helpful and accommodating. A group of six can be high maintenance with different requests at different times. The front desk staff was always so helpful with nice restaurant recommendations, taxis, questions about rooms, etc. When can we go back to Florence and Il Guelfo Bianco again?!

We had a large two bedroom, two bathroom apartment on the same street as the Palazzo Medici. The location was fantastic. Only one block from the Galleria Accademia. Five minute walk to the Duomo. Staff were very helpful.

I have stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco about three times now, my most recent visit was for only one night before I returned from Italy back to Massachusetts. This hotel is located just a short walk away from all the beautiful Florentine sites and museums to visit and is also close to the train station for day trips. Every time I have stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco I have a very comfortable, clean and quiet room in which to wind down. The staff is very friendly, professional and always helpful with any questions or needs I may have. On this occasion, they kindly called me a taxi at 4:30 in the morning to get me to the airport and they shipped to my home the Kindle I had left under my pillow in my hurry to get going that morning. The Kindle arrived safe and sound. I highly recommend Il Guelfo Bianco and will continue to stay there when I stay in Florence.
