“Delightful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We so very much enjoyed our stay at Residenza Johanna 1 while in Florence. It was an idea location,a short and easy walk to Piazza del Duomo. Our room was of ample size and very comfortable. The staff where friendly, charming and most helpful during our 4 day stay.
A special thank you to Luca!
I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment!

Very nice B and B, clean comfortable rooms, staff was extremely helpful and sincere, all the guests we met were pleased with their choice, Luca's recommendations for restaurants were wonderful, would recommend this spot to everyone! Book early it's always full, a good indication on how good it is.

Rezidenza Johanna I is the perfect place to start being enchanted by Florence! Great location, tastetfully furnished and very clean rooms and a really nice and helpful guy at the reception. Everything in this hotel is made with elegance and attention to the detail - including the classical music at the reception. We spend a week in Florence off-season (February) and the elegant but homely atmosphere of Rezidenza Johanna I made our stay really unforgettable. We will definitely come back!

My husband and I did not want to go the sterile, commercial route of staying in a hotel; rather, we opted for a BnB that would give us a homely taste of Florence. We were not disappointed with our stay at Johanna 1 which was during the New Year period, 2014. We loved the wooden floors in the passage with its paintings and antique dresser laid with cups and saucers and fresh cake daily. Classical music in the background was a nice touch. The décor in the two rooms had an old worldly charm about them with their dark furniture, antique prints on the pale blue walls, and the burgundy and cream drapes. (However, I do think the rooms were a bit ‘tired’ and would benefit from a fresh lick of paint and a new quilt/counterpane). The rooms were clean with fresh linen and towels daily. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. The central heating was most efficient to the point of us sleeping with the windows wide open at night. The shower rose was big, rendering strong, hot water – a pity that there was no bath plug permitting a long soak!
As for the service, we were most impressed. We received a warm welcome and were helped on numerous occasions with our tourist queries. The free Wi-Fi and honesty bar came in handy. Although the dining room was very small, accommodating about 8 people at a time, we did not find this a problem. The breakfast spread was more than adequate.
I must just point out that on our arrival the beautiful view of the courtyard was marred by some scaffolding, a cement mixer and rubble. Whereas we understand the need of regular restoration and the logic of this being executed during off-peak season, it would have been courteous to let us know in advance about the building operations at the establishment

Dear guests from Cape Town, South Africa,

we are greatful for your lovely review and your kind attention, it was our delight hosting you in our florentine home.
We thank you as well for your remarks and must note that we do renew the wall-paint yearly - usually in springtime and that the quilts are new as well.
Furthermore, we didn't find it necessary informing you with the restoration working since it regarded the oposite pacade and so didn't involve any disturbance to our guests.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again in our residence and until then we send you our warmest regards
from all the staff of Johanna I

Residence Johanna is the place for refined travellers with good taste. It offers enjoyable stay in the space decorated with a touch of an old Florentine style, and with classical music in the background. It is located in the perfect area, isolated from touristic noise and crowd, with local people living in the neighbourhood and with many nice local restaurants. The staff is smart and wonderful.
I highly recommend it to all of you who appreciate the beauty of simple and quality things.
