We admit it— we have a crush on Residenza Johanna I. Tucked away in a quiet residential area north of San Lorenzo, Johanna I houses 10 meticulously decorated, splurge-worthy rooms.

When converting her grandparents’ former apartment into the B&B, proprietor Johanna Vitta made great use of the apartment’s original characteristics. Picture dark molding and exquisite wooden doors with glass panels. Rooms are furnished with classic canopies and antique armoires, most of which belonged to Johanna’s grandparents. Updated touches include silk window treatments and colorful floral quilts. Still lifes and sketches of Medici villas decorate the walls.

Each room is equipped with free Wi-Fi (there is also a laptop available to guests), a cute 1950s-style mini-fridge and flat-screen television. En suite bathrooms are small and bright. The residence also offers mini-suites with small sitting rooms and tempting bathtubs with rainfall shower heads.

When we visited, a light vanilla scent and soft opera music added ambiance to the low-lit, richly decorated entryway. It’s fitting for an establishment whose neighbors are 19th-century palazzos (the Johanna I is directly across the courtyard from the Swedish embassy).

Rates are at the higher end of the Cheapo-spectrum, but we think the Johanna I is definitely worth the splurge. Note that rates drop during the low season, and discounts are available for longer stays (ask ahead).

In addition to the included breakfast, complimentary tea, coffee and snacks are available throughout the day.

About the Johanna I B&B 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.
