We stayed with Michel and Cynzia in March 2015. We had the Henry James room which is the largest of 5 rooms. The room was very spacious, nicely decorated and superbly clean. The fresco at the ceiling was fantastic to wake up in the morning. Having a bath was wonderful to relax after a day of strolling in Florence. 1865...

We spent 3 wonderful days at Florence and we were so happy to know we would get to such beautiful and comfortable room every night after all our walks. It is so well decorated with all the first class details of a 5 star hotel. Bathroom and bed were superb and breakfast delicious. Michelle was wonderful to us and he...

We stayed at 1865 for 3 nights to celebrate my husbands birthday in March. Cinzia greeted us when we arrived and offered us coffee while she sat with us over a map of the city and marked points of interest for us to visit. She also made a restaurant booking for my husbands birthday on the Saturday night, the restaurant...

We stayed here with our four year old son and had a phenomenal experience. Michel really made us feel at home. The rooms are beautiful and modern, the breakfast is really good, and the location is great. This is one of the best stays we've had in a long time!

Wonderful. I can't begin express how memorable our experience was. I decided last minute to take my husband for his birthday to Italy . Michel made reservations to a great restaurant nearby. It was not only delectable but located in the neighborhood. That was great after a long day of driving with Italian drivers. The acommodations could not have been...

First off, this review of our stay in August 2014 is way overdue. My fiancé and I spent 4 nights here on our first trip to Florence. We looked at a few different places before finally choosing this one. Best choice ever, period. The hosts: Michel and his wife Cinzia took care of us from start to finish (even in...

This hotel was more than we could have imagined. Where to start? The owners are an amazing couple who speak about 5 languages and gave us the best dinner recommendations (as well as got us reservations wherever we wanted). Breakfast was the best I think I have ever had at a hotel. This included fresh cappuccino, tomatoes, mozzarella, and homemade...

I will echo the sentiments of the previous reviewers, as there is not much else to add. The glowing reviews, which were a significant reason why I booked this property, were spot on. My wife and I, who stayed at 1865 in February, had a fantastic experience. Michel and Cinzia do a wonderful job there and have a truly beautiful...

The moment I stepped out of the elevator, had a ‘peep’ into the reception area and greeted by the elegant hostess Cinzia I knew that all the wonderful reviews I have been reading on Trip Advisor must be true. Apart from historic building, beautiful decos, ancient frescos on the ceilings, modern facilities, delicious breakfast, welcoming hosts, it is the miraculous...

I can honestly says 1865 Residenzia d'epoca is one of the nicest places we have stayed, from the charming and helpful hosts to the beautiful and comfortable rooms. It is a place with real style and is run with a genuine generosity by the hosts. Although in a quite residential area, it is close to places to eat and drink...
