Generally a lovely property but a bit of a walk from all the main attractions. Breakfast was exactly the same every morning. There was no accommodation for food allergies in spite of advising them in advance. We had an early morning flight and there was no offer to provide us with any sort of breakfast (even a bagel would have...

Sorry to say this review is long overdue. We stayed for a week at the end of June in 2016. Our hosts, Michel & Cinzia, were very gracious and accommodating. During our stay, they recommended and confirmed restaurant reservations, arranged for a private tour guide who took us on a walking tour of Florence, and helped us troubleshoot problems booking...

It is the best place any one can stay at in Florence. My husband and I stayed here in the early part of May. The location was perfect, it was was very close to the center of Florence, but in a nice quite neighborhood. Everything was in walking distance. Ciniza and Michel were very very helpful, both preceding and during...

We stayed for one week with Michel and Cinzia at 1865 Residenza to explore Florence. The experience of staying at 1865 Residenza is the ideal combination of sophistication with ease. The residence is elegant yet comfortable - thoughtfulness and care of the owners can be felt everywhere. Immaculately clean, airy room with modern bathroom in a historical residence. We would...

Fantastic building, amazing rooms, extremely convenient location, and Michel was incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. I cannot recommend this place enough. And my words can do it no justice!

If you get a reservation here, you will be generously rewarded. We could not have been more pleased. The rooms, the food, the bathroom (extra wow), but more importantly Cinzia and Michele are just lovely. They really make you feel like part of the family. Their recommendations for dinner each night were perfection. Staying away from the busier section of...

We stayed at 1865 for one week in late April 2017. We chose it because of a combination of its location, price and positive reviews. That being said, 1865 exceeded our expectations. The location is ideal, in a quiet residential neighborhood but within walking distance of all of tourist Firenze, surrounded by winding streets, family restaurants, historical sites and local...

Im writing this review a bit late sorry but my husband and myself stayed here last year. It is the most beautiful of hotels only having a small number of rooms but all decorated differently. We had the most beautiful ceiling fresco I have ever seen. The breakfast served was stunning.. definitely recommend the eggs! The hotel is situated in...

When I was planning my trip to Florence, I really wanted it to be a trip where we got to know the people who live there and the places they go to. I didn't want to be a typical tourist. When I found 1865 Residenza d'epoca, I was thrilled. The website pictured a beautiful and well maintained place to stay...

What a find in Florence! This unique historic building has a great location, amazing ambiance, and great amenities. Cinzia had made this an unforgettable gem! Breakfast each morning was delicious. We enjoyed using the common room in the evenings to relax and plan our next day’s ventures. We slept extremely well each night—the location is so quiet and serene! We...
