Family, friends and I recently spent 10 days at the Guelfo Bianco, which turned out to be a most pleasant and enjoyable experience. The accommodations were exceptional and the attendants most cordial. The hotel is family owned and managed and their close attention to daily operation is evident in every detail, to include the restaurant, bar and all related amenities....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stayed in the hotel for 6 nights and had a really wonderful stay - the staff went out of their way to be helpful at all times and they do an excellent breakfast buffet every day. All the food is made from fresh ingredients from their farm. The attached restaurant Il Desco is also brilliant and has some tasty...

We stayed here for 4 nights over the Easter weekend. Needless to say, Florence was completely packed with tourists. There are positives and negatives to being centrally located. The positives: easy to get around and allows you to stop back at your hotel as needed. The negatives: It's much more noisy with the crowds. This hotel is on a main...

My husband and I just returned after spending 5 nights at this incredible hotel. The room was clean and extremely spacious. We overlooked the courtyard and were never bothered with any outside noise. We slept wonderfully every night. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were very gracious with coffee, cappuccino and food refills even during busy times. The front...

Great hotel just a short walk to all the historic sites in Florence. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are spacious, nice bathroom and comfortable beds. The breakfast is varied and delicious, some of it coming from their family farm. Organic when they can do it. Good cappuccinos. The restaurant in the hotel, Il Desco is definitely a...

Fantastic location. Staff was very helpful and friendly especially Francesco. Breakfast was excellent. So nice to have a restaurant onsite. Walking distance from everything we wanted to see.

My husband and I recently stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco for our trip to Florence. The room was spacious and very clean, with a huge bathtub and charming courtyard view out the window.

Nice small hotel near main attractions in Florence. All basic amenities available. Request to be in the back of the hotel because front is very noisy. The management graciously moves us after the first night. Breakfast is nice indoors and out on the patio.

San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
