An excellent, well run B&B located in a typical Florentian street just south of the river, ~20 min walk into Ponte Vecchio and the city centre. Out hosts, Donatella and Nico, were extremely accommodating and helpful, taking the time to explain the local area, provide great sightseeing and food recommendations as well as book restaurant reservations. Rooms were spacious and...

Perfect location to be where the locals live/eat yet walkable to the tourist attractions. Kind hosts, and delicious breakfasts with selections of fruits & pastries with a rotation of main courses like egg souffles and yogurt trifles. Really enjoyed my stay and Donatella's hospitality (ask to view her watercolor albums, they are bellissimo!) and would recommend B&B Monte Oliveto to...

If you're in Florence, Italy, there is NOT a better place to stay. Upon arriving we were met by Nicolo who helped show me the parking garage around the corner from this beautiful retreat. Then he helped with out bags, which we had plenty since were in Italy for 2 weeks. After settling in our quaint room overlooking the garden...

Donatella is a kind, patient and detail-oriented host. My room had a private bath and outdoor patio area, overlooking the amazing gardens. The breakfast was wonderful, with fresh fruit, cakes and yogurt. Donatella provided details regarding transport and activities. The B&B is located on a quiet street but there are many dining and shopping options nearby. The home is spotlessly...

If I could rate things on here as higher than 5/5 stars, this would be the B&B that I would use that for. Simply amazing stay at the Monte Oliveto in Florence. Donatella was the most amazing host I've ever stayed with (and I've been lucky to do a lot of traveling, so I have met many hosts). She made...

I travelled with my adult daughter and a friend of hers. We stayed in the upper level room. The room was clean and cozy. It has its own terrace, bathroom and even a small kitchen. It is spacious but the sleeping area in under a sloping ceiling so you will be bending over at times. This didn't bother us at...

My friend and I spent a week in this wonderful establishment and it could not have been more wonderful. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Donatella, Marta, and Nicolo. Nicolo carried our bags up for us as Donatella checked us in. It felt as if we were staying with family friends. After sleeping off our jet lag, we walked...

Donatella continues to be the world's best B&B host. This was our second stay at her property. We stayed in the same upstairs suite, planning perhaps to take advantage of the kitchen. But, we had fewer days in Florence this time, so we tried to instead take advantage of every moment in that glorious city. We did make espresso a...

Absolutely lovely! Donatella is very welcoming and caring and provides the most wonderful natural food for breakfast. Her garden is a delight to look at. My single room was perfectly adequate. It is a lovely area to stay in and away from the tourist crowds and there are some nice restaurants within reasonably easy walking distance. About 25 minutes walk...

We spent three nights at the B&B and found Donatella to be a treasure. She was welcoming, professional and a wealth of information for us. We were given recommendations for local restaurants, museums, use of maps, bus schedules and bookings for a taxi. Donatella even prepared breakfast early for us one morning as we had a tour. The B&B was...
