Reviewed 17 October 2013

We had a very enjoyable six day stay in Florence. Antica Dimora Johlea is the perfect place, beautiful inside with every facility you could wish for, a delicious breakfast and coffee and cake all day, extremely helpful and kindly staff and to top it all a fabulous terrace to look out over historic Florence. It is just wonderful.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely.

thank you so much for your attention spending a so good review .

We are happy that you were so satisfied with our accomodation, our location is in an old "palazzo" as a hidden, small treasure to be found......but at the end.... here you can enjoy the right Florentine atmopshere ......

Thank you again, cordially from Florence, Sandra, Gordana and Michela

We recently spent 6 nights at Antica Dimora Johlea in Florence to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and it lived up to its glowing reputation. Our room was well appointed with beautiful florentine antique furnishings and a really comfortable four poster bed. We even had a mezzanine floor with desk and sofa. There were tea/coffee facilities in the room with biscotti and fruit. The complimentary wine on arrival was a welcome touch. The bath/shower was excellent i.e powerful. The staff were really attentive and helpful especially the receptionist who recommended restaurants and booked them on our behalf. All were superb particularly Zaza. Breakfast room was delightful and was a great opportunity to meet other guests and swap stories about our Florence experiences. Coffee and cake were available all day and the honesty bar was also a nice touch. The roof top terrace had fantastic views over florentine rooftops to the Duomo (reminded me of the film "a room with a view"). The location was very quiet and peaceful but only a short walk into the centre. All in all this added to a most wonderful stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who wanted a luxurious but affordable stay in Florence. I even felt that the daily climb up the 3 flights of stairs (there is a small lift) was excellent preparation for our ascent up the Duomo!

We stayed 2 wonderful nights in Antica Dimora Johlea. The rooms are beautifully designed and the staff is great. We have 2 small kids and the staff was very helpful in accomdating all our needs (such as: baby bed etc). We also found the value for money to be good when one compares what they offer vs. the other pricey hotel options in Florence.
We would definitely come again.

Lovely little Hotel, with comfortable furnishings and bed. Nice touch is the free coffee and cake and biscuits available in the top floor lounge. So nice to come back after a hard day's walking and relax with coffee and cake in a comfortable lounge. Also the roof garden was great for some fresh air in peace and quiet. Only slight downside is the distance from town. About a 10 minute walk to the Central Market but you feel it on the way back. Hotel staff were good at recommending nearby restaurants when you don't fancy walking back into town.

Antica Dimora Johlea was a pleasent place to stay in in Florence.
The bed&breakfast Hotel is very nicely furnished with antique furniture, the rooms are in a comfortable size.
Breakfast is served in the upper floor with the possibility to go up to the roof terrace. The roof terrace can be used all day/night and has a nice view over Florence. You can see the dome for example.
The breakfast room also is equipped with the "honesty" bar. Any time of the day you can get soft and alcoholic drinks there and you just need to place the information for payment at the "front" desk.
The "front" desk an antique desk in the entrance room of the hotel, where you can find an always friendly and helpful person between 8:00 - 20:00.
This is really a place to recommend and if we come back to Florence, we gladly take this place again.

Room Tip: I saw two rooms and I could not say which one would be better. There are only 4 or 5.

Had a great stay, Very central location only a 10 minutes walk in to the centre of town, close to the station, great views from the roof terrace of Florence. Nice little touch of leaving cake out each day.

Harmonious, elegant, and full of light, this Florentine residence is situated on the top floor of a beautiful 19th-century palazzo. The rooms, all uniquely designed and decorated, have walls in soft hues of natural earth and mineral pigments. The curtains and the canopies of the four-poster beds are made out of precious oriental silk, while pure linen from Florence's renowned, artisan fabric manufacturer, Antica Tessitoria Busatti, is used to decorate the breakfast hall and living rooms. The bathrooms are done in Carrara marble or in hand-painted tiles. Perhaps the nicest surprise, however, is the rooftop terrace, from which you will be able to admire Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's bell tower, the crenellated silhouette of Palazzo Vecchio, and the magnificent bird's eye view of Florence's historic center. ... more   less
