Getting Around

Located close to the river and the historic center of Florence. City with easy access. Bus and train stops for surrounding locations.

The guest house is located in a palazzo constructed in the mid 1600's as a residence for the noble Florentine family Del Rosso. Passing through many noted Florentine families, in 1922, the palazzo became the seat of the Waldensian Faculty of Theology evolving to the current work in supporting various social service programs for children, the elderly, and people in need.

Thank you.

Istituto Gould is an excellent place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. It is spotlessly clean and the my room was perfect. The man at reception was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Friendly staff and relaxing peaceful vibe.

We were so thankful to have found this place last minute! The air condition and fan worked amazingly. Only complaint is that we had some trouble connecting to the wifi in our room, but it worked very well in the main areas. The lady at the front desk was also kind enough to make a call in Italian for us when a laundromat coin machine ate our money! We would definitely stay here again should we return to Florence. Well done!
