This small B&B is one of the most memorable places I have stayed. I stayed with my girlfriend for 3 nights in the Dostoyevsky room, which has a 4+ meter high frescoed ceiling, a canopy bed, and a great room design throughout. This is easily on par with a top class boutique hotel anywhere in the world. The hotel is...

Hosting and info by Michel and Cinzia is unparalleled. Nothing you may ask is too much trouble and their ideas will inspire you to visit restaurants and locations on the lesser touristic side of Firenze. The residence itself is beautifully clean, maintained and decorated (in keeping with its age). Most importantly though they have a beautiful dog called Ross and...

My husband and I recently spent 6 nights at 1865 Residenza in September. Cinzia and Michel were the best hosts imaginable. Upon your arrival they make sure you know how to reach the best restaurants and the best routes to the major attractions. The location is perfect. You will be surprised how compact Florence is and how easy it is...

1865 Residenza is a well-designed and modern accommodation in a classic historic building near the Synagogue. Our hosts, Michel and Cinzia, have attended to every detail. Located in a quiet upscale residential neighborhood, 1865 Residenza is within walking distance to everything Florence has to offer, yet away from the touristy tumult. The well-appointed rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and...

This place was perfect for our Honeymoon adventures through Italy and offered the comfort and feel of a B&B while still providing the luxury of a hotel. The rooms are modern and clean, yet romantic.

Immaculately clean with tasteful and modern decor, this hotel wowed me in every way!

Although this is a B&B it is actually more like a boutique hotel with daily housekeeping service even the hotel only has 5 rooms. The room is comfortable and the dining area/living room is very cosy. The owners Michele and Cinzia really make you feel at home. It is located in the old town of Florence with lots of restaurants...

1865 is amazing for the rooms, decor, charm, location, breakfast etc but the real gem are the hosts!
