Chintia did welcome us like her family(no need to say more), I didn't have reservation and she had one room left since all were booked in advance, the rooms are completely renovated and the renovation was done perfect since they mix modern and 18th century together. The location is very good, walking distance from the center. Since there is parking...

We LOVED staying with Cinzia and Michel. They were gracious hosts, and very helpful with making reservations, relaying directions, and giving advice about what places were best for spending our three days in Florence. Their B & B is a great value, especially with the great breakfast and the always available caffe machine. We enjoyed meeting fellow travelers at breakfast...

Fabulous stay! Michel and Cinzia are fantastic hosts. They were so helpful with recommendations for restaurants and things to do. I was a bit apprehensive about staying in a B & B but was pleasantly surprised! Sofia the housekeeper cleaned our rooms to a high standard daily and always replenished the bathroom with fresh towels. Breakfast was always interesting as...

The 1865 is absolutely perfect, you won't regret booking your stay with them. The location is just perfect, a very quite and residential neighborhood and a short walk to everything that you'd like to visit during your stay. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. And last but not least, Michel and Cinzia welcomed us warmly and we...

Our second trip to Florence and we booked 1865 Residenza d'epoca on the recommendation of friends. Unbeatable location - a short walk to all attractions but situated on a quiet and very safe residential street, with a very easy-to-operate taxi call service! Rooms were beautiful with frescoed ceilings and immaculate modern bathrooms. The leisurely breakfasts with Michel's world famous crepes/pancakes...

Absolutely fabulous stay. If there is availability, just book 1865, you won't regret it. Perfect location away from the craziness of the sites, but within walking distance of everything. Beautiful rooms, lovely breakfast, and kind hosts. If we are lucky enough to return to Florence, I would only think of staying here.

Unfortunately I fell ill just a couple of days into our stay. Our host Michel's wife, arranged for a Doctor to visit, and Michel went to collect the prescriptions. Their kindness and concern was something that you would never find in an hotel. After a couple of days I was well enough to try one of the many recommended local...

I cannot give a higher accolade to this B&B because Trip Advisor will only allow me to give 5 stars This is not only a hidden gem..beautiful painted faux ceilings of the era 19th century - but the owners made us feel more than welcome. They went out of their way when my friend was ill. They not only called...
