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.

I stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco for five nights in February 2019 and was highly pleased with every aspect of the accommodation. The price I was offered was more than fair for the quality and comfort of the room I received. While the hotel is located on a central street, I reserved

This hotel is on a main street about two blocks away from the Cathedral. It is within convenient walking distance to all sites in central Florence and about a 10 minute walk to the train station. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was large and also a bit unusual in

Dear AMS48301, thanks for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We do have several rates to meet all the needs. If you stay more than one night you can look at the long stay rates (where we do grant a discount on the best flexible rate) more you stay more discount you will get. You can decide than to give the credit card just to secure the reservation and cancel with no penalty fee till max 3 days prior the arrival or in case you decide to pay immediately when you confirm the booking, rate is even more convenient (in this case be careful that if you cancel there is no refund). However if you need help to choose the best rate for you , you can Always write us an email or contact us by phone , we are always available 24 hours a day. We really hope to welcome you here again and we wish to everyone a Merry Christmas and a marvellous 2019. Many of you who have stayed with us have left beautiful memories in our hearts.

This hotel is in the perfect location, just a few minutes from Duomo and even less to Accademia (Statue of David). There are a bunch of great restaurants about, our favourite was a little bakery selling amazing cannolo (ARA e Sicilia) just around the corner from the hotel.

During my many stays at the hotel I've seen someone at the front desk at all times, day & night, and they are right next to/have a clear line of sight to the entrance. Taxi fares from the airport to Florence are fixed rate, thinking it was around 22 euros plus 1 Euro for each bag. Might be a little extra for late night/holiday trips. Be sure to let the hotel know about your expected late arrival.

Sorry I missed this question. There is one but for our room there were still about 7 stairs up to our door so if stairs are a concern be sure to email the hotel to ask for a room that is accessible only by elevator. :)

"There is an elevator and the windows are well insulated for sound so perhaps a room facing the street, as ours did, is a good option"
"Book directly with the hotel."
"Room 124 has a very nice outdoor terrace"
"Ask for a quiet room, on the inner courtyard."
"This hotel has an elevator."
US$100 - US$220 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
