“What a wonderful place to stay for holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

I've been to florence during summer holiday.
One of my friend recommended 'HOTEL 1865', I was the first guest at the hotel.
It was beyond expectation.
All of '1865', facilities, amenities and breakfast, are beautiful and perfect.
Above all things, the owner, Michel and Cinzia, they served us very sincerely.
I could't enough praising their devoted service.
I'll visit '1865' again in the near future.

Room Tip: Each room has their distictive design itself. Please check the style through the web.

1865 stands today as my favorite hotel in Florence. We were welcomed (after a two hour delay) at 4am in the morning by the owner himself and escorted up the authentic residential building. Each of the rooms was distinctly designed with its own character and subsequently each of them was named after a historical writer.
We were first to stay at our court-view freshly-painted and restored room. it was just like staying at a close friend's home. Breakfast was served (upon our requested timing) in the beautiful high-ceiling central dining room using the family's equisite plates and home-like cutlery.
We were perfectly located, just a 5 minute walk from the center but we opted to rent bicycles from a near-by rental.
We will, without a doubt, be visiting again soon.

I have been coming to Florence for the past 10 years and my stay at 1865 has been my best so far. Away from the typical touristic florence tourist traps, 1865 offers an authentic experience. It almost feels like I was staying at a friends house. The building is a historic palazzo and every single room has an italian painting on the ceiling that is more than 100 years old. Wonderful to wake up and see the painting first thing in the morning. Our room was recently renovated with nice new furniture, beds and even a small collection of Italian history and books in our room. We also really enjoyed the fact that the hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Duomo. The owners are also wonderful and we got a chance to know them and join them for a small aperitivo (afternoon drinks) on one of our days. Definitely look forward to coming back soon to stay at 1865.

Room Tip: There is one room that overseas a small garden next door...try to ask for that one.
