“Charming and comfortable”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Excellent location to visit Florence´s historical centre: 10 minutes walk to Santa Maria Novella and 10 minutes also to Duomo. Beatiful and charming room, spacious and decorated with care. On the roof top there is an open terrace for guests with amazing views to the Duomo. From the breakfast room you can also enjoy that view, so it´s a great start of the day. Amazing cappuccino is served. The staff is really kind, dedicated to make your stay comfortable.
Tip: when you arrive for the first time, you will possibly skip the gate as there is not a big sign, only a small plaque (at least we did not see it the first time we came by).
Highly recommended.

The Locanda dei Guelfi proved to be a good choice for us and we enjoyed our stay there. You never know quite what to expect even if you have read the reviews before you go. We had no difficulty in finding the hotel and the steps up to the third floor were not an issue for us although I can see that it might be a problem for some. The location is excellent although the area is quite busy but this was not a problem for us. The room and facilities were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was good and the coffee was excellent as was the free WiFi! The view of the Duomo from the breakfast room makes a nice start to the day! The owner was very helpful and keen to make your stay comfortable.

My husband, daughter and I stayed here over Thanksgiving and we loved the room, service, bathroom and the amazing breakfast! The location is excellent, view of the Duomo on one of 2 terraces available for guests. Breakfast included fruit, cappuccino, several assorted bread, biscotti, cheese, meats. Percy was most accommodating and there for our every need. I would highy recommend Locanda dei Guelfi and when we go back to Italy, we will stay here again.

Entrance is by large wooden door right on the street. 69 stone steps to get to reception area and room, but well worth the climb. Our room was lovely - large and airy, with two long windows opening out onto street. Street noise, which was to be expected. Beds were really comfortable, shower good. Airconditioning really worked, not governed as in some hotels. Circular staircase up to deck on roof, with spectacular view over Florence. Breakfast good. Percy was always helpful and ready to please. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Breakfast was plentiful - pastries , juices , ham , cheese , hard boiled eggs , Cakes , selection of cereals and juices . The sweet gentleman made us fresh coffee each morning . Would recommend to all . Abi and Rich

Good location, close to Duomo. Nice restaurants around. Rooms are quiet and nice. The breakfast was just ok. From the roof it offered an excellent vue of town. The toillets need some big improvement. Not bad for a short stay.

Although the climb up the steps at the end of the day proved challenging, it was worth every step as we found our way to the roof to watch the most beautiful sunset settle over the rooftops of Florence. As the cool chill of the fresh night air surrounded us, we sat and chatted with fellow travelers we had just met, sharing our day's experiences. Retreating to our comfortable room at the end of the hall, we rested our tired bodies on soft sheets and drifted into peaceful sleep looking forward to the new sites we had discovered from our new found friends. After a delicious breakfast prepared by Percy, the B&B manager and his wife, we headed out for another day of experiencing the art and sites of Florence!

Room Tip: The room at the end of the hall to the right of the check-in desk was great!
