The hotel is ok and the staff was very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was external and just opposite the room. Its ok for a fairly cheap stay.Breakfast could be improved. Its in a good location near the historic centre

Charming b&b on the 4th floor of an old building. Very Nice room. Good breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. A good breakfast. The small (very small) roof top terrace was amazing With great views.

Ideal location for visiting florence being less than 10 mins walk from Firenze SN train station and the tourist attractions. Rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Nice views of the Duomo from the roof terrace and dinning room. Continental style breakfast provided was good.

It is on the third floor but it seems a little harsh to criticise because of this as its part of a very old historic building and staff were happy to help with our bags. All in all it was a nice stay and we would stay here again.

This was one of the worst places we have stayed. We stayed in room 1. At four o'clock in the morning we began hearing the Vespas buzzing by on the street below owing to our proximity to a busy street. The smells that began emanating from the bathroom were not pleasant. The location is a good walking distance to the duomo, and the views from the roof top were wonderful. On balance, however, I would not stay here again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located about 10 -12 min walk from Florence SMN train station. The hotel is on the third floor of the building without elevator, but the owner has helped with our luggage, so it was not an issue at all. Very clean and quiet. The breakfast selection is very good (serials, fruits, milk, coffee (prepared fresh per your request), sweets, cold cuts, yogurt, and fruit juice). The breakfast room has an astonishing view of Florence rooftops and Duomo. It also has a little balcony, and you can take unique pictures from there. There is a spiral staircase which goes on yet another terrace/balcony with even better view, where you can sit with your glass of wine or with a cap of coffee. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

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.
