B&B Il Cielo
Ranked #309 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 November 2011

We had a great time in Florence and a pleasant stay at Il Cielo. The rooms are tasteful and the host is helpful and accommodating. He is there if you need but also stays out of your way. The breakfast is plentiful and a nice variety of food with beautiful pastries.
The rooms are situated at the top of 4 flights of stairs for which there are no lifts (typical of Europe) but the host is helpful with your bags.
We had a small mixup with arrival times and so we had to call him when we arrived as noone was there but that is because we were late as we missed the train and he may have thought we weren't coming. He was very helpful with storing our bags after we checked out and made a special trip back to let us in so we could claim the bags that night.

During my recent trip to Italy I stayed in Florence for a couple of nights, and was hosted by Giancarlo at Il Cielo. It was a great spot to stay! Just a short walk away from the train station and the downtown area. Giancarlo was very hospitable, providing a simple but tastey breakfast each morning. He also went out and found an iron for me when I mentioned that I had to press my shirt (i think his iron was broken at the time). Friendly guy, and all around quite helpful. Would not hesitate to return.

Lovely host, excellent location. Delicious breakfast each morning with fresh partries, cereal, cheeses breads, yoghurts, fresh fruit juice and filter coffee. Room large and comfortable, just as seen in the pictures. We had absolutely nothing to complain about, and had a truly wonderful stay!

Well, I am very late writing this review, but I really had to. We travelled to Florence in June 2010, and stayed at Il Cielo for 6 nights. We arrived early at the BB and had to call Giancarlo to come receive us. He arrived very fast, indeed, and, if not warming as other Italian People, he was always kind and welcoming, available at all times personally, by phones or even leaving a note.

Ou room was large and really cosy. It was the one with private shower and sink, with separate toilet for our exclusive use. We felt very odd in having to leave the room to go to the toilet, but it was not a major concern. Also, the bed was nice, large, confy and beautiful. The ceilin was very high, over 3m tall, much taller than my own home. The aircon was silent and efficient.

Breakfast was the best we had in Italy, by far! Yoghurt, fruits, espresso machine all time available, Wonderful italian breads, butter, jam, cheeses, and nice Sicilian pastries, always delicious. If you hve to leave early for a daytrip, let Giancarlo know, and he will prepare a breakfast to go, even with thermal cups for a takeaway espresso.

We were very sorry that Giancarlo didn't have availability for the 8 nights we nedded, as the other B&B was not even close this nice. And, Giancarlo, once again, thanks to you and your wife for our wonderful stay. Me (Luiz) and Ieda really miss you a lot.
