This house is not a hotel, there are no numbers on the doors, not on the rooms keys. You won't find a reception nor waiters in uniform. At Monte Oliveto you don't stay.......You Live!

The house is in walking distance of all the action, yet just outside of it, so it's a quiet neighborhood. Stay here if you want to get a good night's sleep! The host, Marta, and was very hospitable. She lives at the house and makes an amazing breakfast. If only I took a picture of the more grand breakfast the day before... She event went as far as reserving museum tickets for me and planning my road trip through Tuscany. Grazie mille!

There aren't enough stars for how good this B&B is. Marta was the best host, recommending attractions, making reservations at (great) local restaurants and even allowing us to check in early to sleep after a long overnight flight. The B&B itself is wonderfully charming and spacious; the breakfast each morning was extensive and delicious. The B&B is located close enough to popular attractions across the river without being too close to the crowds. It's also near great local restaurants, pizzerias, a Gelateria and an ATM.

Really excellent,homely B and B run by Marta who was very attentive and welcoming. Fabulous and varied, generous breakfast in a pleasant garden. My room had a nice terrace. Located on the quieter side of the Arno, which I preferred, rather than the busier centre. Nothing more than a twenty or so minute walk and good bus service anyway. Just how a well run B and B should be as Marta looked after us in her home.

Room Tip: Just buy a few bus tickets from the tobacconist to hop on and hop off and save a bit of walking.

We had just a perfect stay at Monte Olivetto B&B for 5 nights. Marta is just soooo friendly attentioned and nice! She’s just strikes the perfect balance between providing all the care needed, but without taking too much space. Probably her previous 5 stars hotel experience shining through! Location is just perfectly located in easy walking reach from Firenze center, yet having the calm & charm on a hill backdrop and a cute garden. Wake up to the birds singing and the delicate scent of rose flowers and Jasmin climbing on your own private terrasse! By the way, the garden is the place where Marta serves a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Per-fect!

The B&B is in a residential and very quiet part of town away from the hustle and bustle of centre which is only a 10 minute walk away. The train station is also just a 10-15 minute walk away. You get a perfect nights sleep here. Marta, the owner, is lovely and is always on hand to provide any assistance, guidance or advice. The breakfast is set in the gardens with a range of home prepared food and drinks. The rooms are tastefully decorated - we had the Wisteria room which had a small terrace to enjoy drinks before heading out. The hotel was very safe as well with sanitiser available and mask wearing required. A lovely little stay in a lovely bed and breakfast.
