Situated on a quiet street near the University of Florence and Palazzo Pandolfini, the Antica Dimora is a B&B to swoon over. As part of the Johanna Vitta four-hotel empire (see also B&B Johanna I), Antica Dimora maintains a charming, boutique feel, with just six deluxe double rooms. Rates are on the high end of the Cheapo spectrum, but worth paying for the “luxe” digs.
Rooms, each more delicious than the last, offer four-poster beds, fine silk curtains, plush bedding and tasteful detailing and artwork. Fresh flowers and soft lighting add a calming feel. Each room comes with a telephone, minibar, satellite television, safe deposit box and free Wi-Fi. They all have air conditioning too.
Bathrooms are divine, with Carrara marble or oil-painted walls and original antique appliances in fine porcelain with intricate detailing. The miniature balconies off some of the rooms, with their views of the surrounding domes and rooftops, left our mouths gaping.
Three larger suites have living rooms and sofa beds and are akin to fantasy Paris apartments.

About the Antica Dimora Firenze neighborhood
North of the Duomo, and home to the Accademia and David, parts of this area are flooded with tourists and tourist cuisine. As you head north, however, the streets widen out a bit, and there's a much more residential feel to the area. The university is also located nearby.
