of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
This is an outstanding hotel. The views are one of a kind, it is silent and the entire setup is perfect.Now I must admit the view from my room was nice but I could not see most of Florence HOWEVER all I had to do was take a very short walk to the patio and Florence was all mine.(I should also point out that I was a bargain traveler and found a deal and the other folks at this hotel were very,VERY rich. Came home one night and the place was crawling with cops and private security....some big time Japanese gentlemen) The staff was too helpful for my taste but I have a problem with people waiting on me. The breakfast was great but I hardly remember what I ate AS THE VIEWS BLOW YOUR MIND. Warning the cabbies in Florence make the mafia look like boy scouts. So i used the hotel shuttle when I could and walked the rest of the time. I am in good shape and the walk up the hill is tough...figure out the bus systems it will save you cash and arguing with the cabbies.
OK, my wife and I love this place. Small mixup on where to pick us up in town via the shuttle, but were given a room where we could lay in bed and see the Duomo. Pool is fantastic, terrace for breakfast is fantastic, dinner at their restaurant is fantastic. Shuttle into town if you need it. Will be going back as soon as we possibly can.
"Simply amazing! Stunning views, awesome staff"
Wow! One of our favorite stays while in Italy without a doubt... Our room was certainly updated and quite large, with a spacious bathroom as well. The hotel is so quaint and beautiful... as if you owned this beautiful villa over looking the city of Florence. The room had two large windows that opened to allow the fresh air and sounds of birds enter into the room. There was a wedding in the front courtyard while we were there. We had lunch and then the most romantic candlelit dinner outside, with wonderful service and great food while being serenaded by frogs in the lily pond, breezes bringing with it the scent of jasmine surrounding the courtyard... watching the sunset over Florence and behind the Santa Croce Basilica and Santa Maria Cathedral. Close enough for a quick (complimentary) ride into bustling Florence, but just far enough to escape into the beautiful countryside where there is a sidewalk and tree lined streets overlooking the city. Just down from Piazzale Michelangiolo where there are crowds to see the same view we had in the courtyard! The breakfasts were fantastic. They had everything you could ask for, and even prepared omelettes per our request. It would be hard to imagine a nicer or more wonderful setting.
"Absolutely beautiful hotel with amazing views over city!"
Nice little elegant hotel, friendly and very helpful staff, great location with a stunning view over Florence. Swimming pool and garden was exceptional. We booked the "Romantic double room" the size was small but well decorated and very clean. The bathroom was very very big and luxury. Loved the breakfast was amazing and enjoyed the view very much. You can park your car in villa's beautiful garden safely and free. Hotel is located in a very nice area and right next to the popular Michelangelo square. We also enjoyed the little public park down the Michelangelo square. 20 minutes walking distance to the old town and we enjoyed the walk very much but if you do not like to walk the hotel offers a free shuttle. I would recommend this place to anyone - you will not regret it!
"Great hotel & staff , but rooms need to be updated !"
We really enjoyed our stay here in may . The view from the hotel terrace is excellent & the staff is extremely friendly . Perfect for our family vacation . The only thing I feel is that the rooms could use an update . We had a suite & room , & while the suite was ok , the room definitely needed some work . All in all tough great hotel & staff!
