Dear guests brycem797,

We loved to have you here again! Thank you very much for your nice review, it gives us even more energies to keep working in these way.
As you said, having breakfast on the terrace with all the center of Florence in front of you is the best way to begin a day of visiting and it's the sweetest place to come back after that...

We are looking forward to welcoming you here again soon,

Kindest regards,

The Staff of Antica Dimora Johlea, Gordana, Michela and Eleonora

Although one needs to climb three very tall flights of stairs, unless you can manage to use the tiniest of elevators, it is well worth it once you are inside the flat. The rooms are charming, comfortable and airy. The service is great. On the 4th floor there is a small living space, breakfast bar, and dining area. This leads to a roof top with tables and chairs to enjoy the weather. There is a full bar, coffee and tea 24 hours of the day. it has kept its oldly worldly charm that I visit Italy to enjoy. Thank you Michela and Gordana for a wonderful welcome. This was our second time round, and we look forward to the 3rd one soon.

Room Tip: All rooms are ensuite I believe. Each one overlooks a building but has large windows.

Dear guest NiloufersKitchen,

First of all thank you for choosing us for the second time, it has such a pleasure to host you again!
We really appreciated your description of what we are and what we offer, so thank you once more!
The building of the 19th century where we are gives a great charme to our bb and the elevator that we have it is the classical one that can be found in buildings like this.

Looking forward to your 3rd time here, we send you our warmest regards,

The Staff of Antica Dimora Johlea, Gordana, Michela and Eleonora

This lodging is more like a bed and breakfast in terms of feeing. It is in a quite area of the city but easily within walking of the major sites. It is in a tall stone apartment building and comprises 6 rooms off a main and well appointed receptions area. The rooms are small but there is a common area of the lining and dining room and a nice roof top garden. We were very comfortable there. One of the receptionists was very helpful to book dinner reservations for us and such. It might be tight for a long visit because the rooms are small but we were very comfortable there. I would stay again.

You can't find a better spot in Florence. An easy walk to the city's attractions, this is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the noise and tourists. The staff was outstanding, helping us with reservations, tickets, and tours that were very difficult to get. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon. It was a cozy place to come back to after long days out in the city, and only about 10-15 minutes walk from the heart of historic Florence. The staff were all very helpful, welcoming, and spoke great English. On our last day, we were able to leave our bags with them for a few hours after check out, and they called a cab for us when we were heading out of town.

There is a nice view from the rooftop terrace, which is probably a gorgeous place to eat breakfast during the warmer months. The rooms are a bit old-fashioned but charming and serve all your needs.

Heads up- the elevator in the building is tiny. You may need to take multiple trips with your luggage.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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. ... more   less
