We were pleasantly surprised with the excellent central location of this very charming historical hotel. Great atmosphere and beautiful decor with a lovely collection of art. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, changing one of the three rooms we had booked as requested. Breakfast was the best we had (out of the 4 hotels we stayed at over our...

We stayed here for 3 nights in a triple room which was spacious and well appointed. It had airconditioning which was a must in the 40 degree heatwave we encountered. The bathroom was large and clean.

We chose this hotel for its excellent central location & for its beautiful spacious room which easily accomodated a family of four (including 2 teenagers). In most other hotels we would have needed 2 rooms which would have been much more expensive. The friendly staff was very helpful in making restaurant suggestions & reservations, and also helping us plan an...

We stayed here because of previous reviews as well as the fact that friends of ours had stayed here. It exceeded our expectations. The room was big and well thought out. Lots of convenient details like electrical outlets level with each bedside table top (for cell phone charging, etc.) There was an adorable vanity in the room that doubled as...

Visited the Guelfo Bianco in Florence for four nights and would highly recommend this hotel. The location was excellent. Just a 5 minute walk to the Duomo in one direction and a 5 minute walk to the Acadamie ( Michangelo's David) in the other direction. Rooms were nicely decorated, comfortable, nice bathroom and good air conditioning. Ask the staff for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
