“Cutest little B&B ever!! I was sad to leave!”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

The lodgings were absolutely adorable and so comfy. The bathroom was spacious, clean, and had a very calm feel to it with the plants scattered about. The bedroom was nicely decorated and the wi-fi worked like a dream! There is also water and beer in the community fridge for purchase which was so handy when you were just too tired from a day of walking about to grab a cold one. The staff was friendly and helpful and a delight to talk with. The breakfast was amazing! Local jams and pastries, granola, fresh fruit, sliced cheese, milk, juice, tea, and freshly made espresso. More than you can possibly eat but I sure gave it a good try! I highly recommend this place to everyone. I look forward to staying here again on my next trip to Florence!

We had a great stay at il Cielo B&B. Our room was lovely - clean, spacious, nicely-decorated: very faithful to the photographs. We had a shared bathroom, but we hardly had to wait for our turn to use it. Wifi worked well.

Breakfast was served in the common area (lovingly prepared by Lisa). Great coffee and pastries, but our favorite was the pecorino and pears (which we miss already!)

Il Cielo is 1 minute away from Mercato Centrale, and 5 minutes from the Santa Maria Novella station. Duomo and the Arno were about 10 minutes away, still manageable. Right next door to Il Cielo, there is a small shop that sells beverages - including ice-cold beer for 1.30 euros, great deal and friendly shop owner.

Do be warned that the B&B is on the 4th floor (which they declare openly). This can be a challenge for heavy luggage, although Gian Carlo helped us with ours, which we really appreciated.

Thank you, Gian Carlo and Lisa! We would love to stay with you again when we come back to Florence!

Cosy, artistic B&B, somewhat hidden in a quiet street nearby Florence station and on walking distance to the center. Decorated with very good taste. Very helpful host and delicious breakfast with local pastry, fresh fruit and homemade jams.

What more could we have asked for from a BB experience!? My husband and I stayed at BB Il Cielo for 4 nights and it was hands down one of the BEST experiences on our 19 day trip across Italy. 

The rooms were beautiful, large and cozy, and the bed was super comfortable (a rare find in Italy.) Bathrooms were clean and the entire place was decorated with tasteful art (his interior designer is a talented  artist.) We were tempted not to leave the place to go explore Florence some days. 

The rooms are only a part of the wonderful experience we had. Giancarlo is the owner and he could not have been a more friendly & helpful host! He suggested the most authentic and delicious restaurants, and is so nice to chat with when he is there. The breakfast he prepares each morning is probably the most amazing breakfast Florence has to offer- no exaggeration. It's better than any restaurant (think quality pastries, sliced pears, pecorino cheese & homemade jams) One morning GianCarlo wasn't feeling very well, so he gave us vouchers to a nearby restaurant. We were so bummed to miss his breakfast! 

We could not believe how inexpensive it was for the extravagant experience we got. We would have stayed there on our whole trip if we could. You will not be disappointed staying here!
