Overall this is the best B&B available in florence! The neighborhood is safe and close to everything. The rooms are large, quite and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom was extremely clean and the breakfast was five star. If you have been looking all over trip advisor for the perfect place... Look no further because you have found it!

I was fortunate to have the opportunity of staying at B&B Monte Oliveto last month. Donatella was the best! She was extremely warm, friendly and most of all sincere. She circled all of the places on a map that I was to see during my 3 day stay and none of them let me down. The breakfast was outstanding, fresh...

We were fortunate to spend a week at B&B Monte Oliveto with Donatella and Nicolo in the middle of November. The Wisteria room was spacious and very comfortable, with an ensuite, a balcony and nice view. Donatella was the perfect host, so friendly, and very helpful, with lots of great advice about the neighbourhood, and Florence in general. Being an...

Firenze was lovely also because we stayed in a lovely residential area just a short (20-25 min) walk from Ponte Vecchio and all the good bits. It was great to explore an alternative Florence far from the maddening crowds (although nothing compared to the absolute hysteria-inducing mayhem of boorish Rome) on the opposite side of the Arno compared to the...

This B&B is in a quiet neighbourhood but within easy walking distance of all the main "must see" venues Florence has to offer. Donatella, our host, is delightful and nothing is too much trouble for her, from lovely organic breakfasts (with in season fruits) to suggestions on where to go and how to get there. She loves art and is...

I Had a perfetto stay with Donatella in Firenze. The room was charming, the location was great, and Donatella's breakfast were amazing.

We had a wonderful stay at Donatella's lovely B&B. Our room was spacious with a nice balcony overlooking the garden. Room and bathroom are clean and the breakfast carefully prepared. Donatella's suggestions and travel tips have made our stay even more enjoyable. Tip, ask for the Wisteria room (includes balcony and an ensuite bathroom).
