This B&B is the perfect location combined with the perfect hosts. The room was clean and the food was delicious. Michel and Cinzia helped us in any and every way possible and were so kind to us. When we return to Florence we will stay here again.

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Florence. The service was amazing and the rooms were so beautiful. We just loved every minute of our stay in Florence thanks to the owners, Michel and Cinzia. Every morning Michel makes a wonderful breakfast for his guests. It was the best breakfast we ate the whole time we...

We stayed in the largest room with the amazing ceiling mural (Henry James) and a big walk-in closet. The hotel is on the same street as the magnificent synagogue of Florence. We loved staying in this area rather than central Florence (which is an easy walk) because it was so much more peaceful and less congested. As everyone else says,...

Stayed here with my gf. Amazing place, stunning view, room, building and garden. Service was excellent!! Too bad they didn't have a pool yet but they're building one at the moment which is due in September. Amazing service!! Can't recommend it more highly!

My partner and I stayed here in May '14. Go here for a more "non-traditional" experience, and you'll be happy you did. Michelle and his wife are so welcoming and helpful. It's like you're overnight guests with family. The rooms are nicely appointed and spacious. A continental breakfast is offered each morning. If you're lucky, you'll have some good conversations...

1865 B&B is a truly exquisite B&B right in the centre of Florence. Michelle and his family are extremely warm and friendly and very helpful. The rooms are exquisitely decorated with originally painted ceilings. The communal area where we had breakfast each morning, which also include scrambled eggs if requested, was free to use during the day. We could also...

If you are looking for charm, authenticity, service with grace, genuine hospitality, love of Florence and amazing local referrals, 1865 is your best choice. Michel and Cinzia create a setting that fosters an appreciation for Florence. The building, appointments, artwork and craftsmanship of 1865 is the stuff of legend. We recommend 1865 to anyone looking for an authentic experience.
