Harmonious, elegant, and full of light, this Florentine residence is situated on the top floor of a beautiful 19th-century palazzo. The rooms, all uniquely designed and decorated, have walls in soft hues of natural earth and mineral pigments. The curtains and the canopies of the four-poster beds are made out of precious oriental silk, while pure linen from Florence's renowned, artisan fabric manufacturer, Antica Tessitoria Busatti, is used to decorate the breakfast hall and living rooms. The bathrooms are done in Carrara marble or in hand-painted tiles. Perhaps the nicest surprise, however, is the rooftop terrace, from which you will be able to admire Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's bell tower, the crenellated silhouette of Palazzo Vecchio, and the magnificent bird's eye view of Florence's historic center.

Dear LauraW11, We were delighted to read from you and we would like to thank you for your beautiful words! It's a pleasure to know you appreciated our decors, as well as our help and position, quiet and residential but close to everything.

Dear Patrick and Isabelle F, It is a real pleasure to read from you! We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and that the standards of the Michelin Guide were up to your expectations. We enjoyed having you here, to have a little chat at your return from the visits, before a coffee/tea on our roof terrace or in our living room and we are looking forward to repeat that! Our warmest regards, The Staff of Antica Dimora Johlea, Eleonora, Gordana and Michela

This place is simply beautiful. Great decor, finishings and high ceilings... I was told this building used to be a palace! Great service by the front desk. The lady, Gordana, even brought me to the bus terminal and made sure I got on the right bus for my trip to The Mall. This

Do all the rooms have showers? Are there lots of stairs?
Dear Sir, Madam except 1 room where there is a bathtub, all the other rooms have a shower. In the building there is an elevator and there are stairs to go to the breakfast room and the roof terrace. Best regards Antica Dimora Johlea
