Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco is a carefully restored building dating from the 15th century, where our professional, helpful staff welcome our guests in an atmosphere that is both friendly and relaxed. Our modern hotel amenities are perfectly combined with our collection of works of art, both contemporary and antique, making our boutique hotel in the center Florence a very special place for your stay in Florence.
“I spent four nights here and was very happy with my room (clean, comfortable bed, desk for working). Within walking distance of the Duomo, Santa Maria Novella train station, and many other beautiful sites. The staff was kind and able to communicate well in English. Breakfast was included and was delightful. Pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, bread, and special dishes prepared…”
Many years ago, we decided not to sell our hotel rooms via third-party booking site such as Booking.com or Expedia. The guests don’t usually know about the rules of these companies, such as the commissions required for each reservation and the ranking ratio is offently unclear. Almost the 20% of the room rate goes to these intermediaries therefore the Hotel is normally obliged to limit the service offered to its customers.
When the reservation relationship is between the guest and the hotel only, it’s clean and easy because there are only two parties involved. We aim to offer the most candid and safe experience to our guests and for this reason we opted for selling our rooms only via our Official Website providing a direct benefit to our guests through our attentive service and helpful staff. We know that it is a hard challenge but we deeply believe in the extra value offered to our customers with transparency and no hidden costs.
Welcome at Il Guelfo Bianco, you landed in the right place!
