We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon. It was a cozy place to come back to after long days out in the city, and only about 10-15 minutes walk from the heart of historic Florence. The staff were all very helpful, welcoming, and spoke great English. On our last day, we were able to leave our bags with...

Fantastic 'Old World' hotel, Staff made us feel completely at home from the start and were very helpful in recommending places to go. Even pointing out a brilliant (and little known) restaurant when we ran into them in the street. Would recommend to anyone planning on visiting Florence.

We had high expectations for Antica Dimora Johlea. The reality exceeded even those high expectations! This welcoming, friendly place is bursting with charm. The folks of Antica Johlea have used every square inch with delightful design elements and have thought of countless little extra touches. For example, there is a roof deck where you can take your breakfast or sit...

It was not our first stay in Florence, but it was nice as usual. The hotel is located on the third and forth floors of a dwelling house. When you arrive you don't feel the atmosphere of the big network hotel like Sheraton or Novotel or Ibis. The reception is very friendly. The rooms are filled in with the light...

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Harmonious, elegant, and full of light, this Florentine residence is situated on the top floor of a beautiful 19th-century palazzo. The rooms, all uniquely designed and decorated, have walls in soft hues of natural earth and mineral pigments. The curtains and the canopies of the four-poster beds are made out of precious oriental silk, while pure linen from Florence's renowned, artisan fabric manufacturer, Antica Tessitoria Busatti, is used to decorate the breakfast hall and living rooms. The bathrooms are done in Carrara marble or in hand-painted tiles. Perhaps the nicest surprise, however, is the rooftop terrace, from which you will be able to admire Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's bell tower, the crenellated silhouette of Palazzo Vecchio, and the magnificent bird's eye view of Florence's historic center. ... more   less
