Certificate of Excellence
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.

Il Guelfo Bianco is the perfect hotel to visit Florence. Very centrally located and just a 10 minute walk from the high speed train station. We had an unexpected free upgrade to a suite with wonderful wooden carved ceilings (room 103). Room seems insulated so no external noise

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.

"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."
