Donatella and Nicolo are the best! The location of the B&B was proximate to many attractions and just and a short walk to city centre. The B&B was very well kept and the outdoor space fantastic. Our room was quite large, providing plenty of space for a long trip with many belongings. Our bathroom was also very big, which we...

We had a fantastic stay at Donatellas B&B in Florence. The house is located in a quiet street, perfect walking distance to the city center. Donatella is a very generous host who knows a lot about her city and will give good recommendations on what to do, restaurants etc. She also make a excellent breakfast. We would recommend Monte Oliveto...

I am writing this review with still a day remaining so I don't forget a single thing about how wonderful our stay here has been! We always like to stay at B&B's rather than faceless hotels so you get a chance to meet and interact with the owners,and what welcoming and charming people they are too. You couldn't want for...

I decided to stay at B&B Monte Oliveto while visiting Florence based on prior TripAdvisor reviews, and was quite pleased. Donatella and Niccolo gave me a welcome when I arrived; thereupon they took some time to learn about my interests so that they could provide suggestions. The B&B is located on the quieter side south of the Arno, about a...

We enjoyed it a lot in this nice and quiet B&B. Nicolo gave a warm welcome (Antonella was on a trip to Southern Italy) and lots of interesting informations about Florence.

I chose this B&B on the strength of the number of positive reviews and I was not disappointed. Although I missed meeting Donatella, my hostess Antonella could not have been friendlier or more helpful during my stay! My room was lovely and comfortable (with a real mattress, not the slab of concrete I slept on in Padua). Once I mastered...

My wife and I had an excellent experience staying at Monte Oliveto. We stayed in the Mansarda Loft which had a very nice terrace where we enjoyed drinks at night, it was so quiet and relaxing. The loft also has a small kitchen which came in handy for us. What really sets this place above others is the hostess, Donatella....

What else is there to say about this gem of a B&B that numerous other people have not said already! The location is brilliant, situated about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Florence in the residential area, and importantly if you are driving, located outside the ZTL.
