“Fine hotel in close proximity to Florence highlights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2009

The rooms were clean and very unique in decor.
The staff was friendly and helped us find great restaurants and reservations . Wireless service was free.
Only room for improvement- one of the two rooms could have used a brighter reading light.
Breakfast were delicious and included in room rate.

I stayed for 4 nights with my boyfriend. The staff were really helpful with tips and suggestions. The hotel is so close to the Duomo, and a short walk to all the sights.

We had a stunning room with all the facilities we needed, and the buffet at breakfast was delicious.
This isn't the cheapest hotel, but it's worth every penny and if I go to Florence again, I would stay here again too.

We stayed in the 'apartment' for 4 days. It was large, comfortable, and convenient. The hotel staff were excellent. Extremely friendly and helpful. They gave us great tips and superb restaurant recommendations. We would definitely stay at Il Guelfo Bianco again if we return to Florence. A difficult place to leave!!!

The friendly & courteous staff helped make our stay in Florence a memorable one. My wife & I liked that it was a short to medium walk to all of Florence's attractions. If we should have the opportunity to visit Florence in the future, Il Guelfo Bianco would be our first choice for accommodations.
P.S. Good breakfast, too!

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. For 3 of those nights, we were in the apartment, which was very spacious for our family of 5. This hotel has very clean and unique rooms. This hotel is very convenient to all the sights - we walked everywhere. Beakfast is very good. Ask for the hot chocolate - it is very thick and rich. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We ate at 2 wonderful restaurants in Florence - Trattoria Mario (Via Rosina, 2/R - a few blocks from the hotel) and Maso Ristorante (Via Maso Finiguerra, 10 - not far from the SMN train station). The San Lorenzo street market is nearby - open everyday until 7 pm. We highly recommend this hotel.

My wife, my father, and I went to Florence for three days during the end of July. We wanted a central hotel, with amenities vital to North American travellers (washroom, a/c, some breakfast), and we found it at Il Guelfo Bianco. For the money and star-rating, this is a great choice for Florence. It was close to everything, while being somewhat away from the major tourist rush; it had a wonderful breakfast; the rooms were very nicely decorated, furnished, and clean; and the staff was very helpful... honestly, what else could you want! And that's how I'm rating this hotel.

As far as 3-stars go in the area, this was a great find, and I found it through TripAdvisor, so let's all keep up the fair ratings for places that deserve it -- like this jewel in Italy's artistic hub, Florence!
