We spent four nights here and loved it. Its rural location in a historic building gives it a very relaxed and romantic feeling. Our room was spacious, clean and pleasant, and looked out onto the lawns and nearby hills. We enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard, and also had a picnic in the surrounding grounds. The staff were lovely and... More

On arrival the hotel staff Laura was waiting for me .. she showed me to my room and made sure the restaurant stayed open for my last order at... More

Great Hotel and if you are traveling in car is the best option to visit all Tuscany, and to Florence don't drive the train station is 10 min away with free parking and you will be in the center of Florence in 20 to 30 min Included Breakfast is great and the restaurant service too.

The hotel is wonderful and the staff are superb! Before we travelled we requested a quiet room with space for a travel cot, which they absolutely delivered on. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived with our 21 month old son and felt the hotel staff really went out of their way to help ensure we had... More

Staff are extremely kind, service appropriate, even on a business trip. A nice typical countryside palace style building at the entrance of the Chianti region. At a side of a road with a lot of local traffic, that is completely unnoticed inside the Vila domains. My room kept the country atmosphere, warm, silent... Did not have any nice views to... More

We stayed in this hotel for a week at the end of August. We wanted something away from the big cities of Tuscany, yet close enough to the good quality road for our trips (FI-PI-LI road is very close). It is a great option for travelers with cars (there is a lot of free space at hotel's private parking), but... More

We had a great time during our stay at Borgo Sant'Ippolito. The hotel is very cozy and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast was delicious. Plus the best cappucino! :-) The dinner was absolutely amazing. The food melts in your mouth. The hotel is a very short drive to the... More

This hotel worked for us as it was a retreat from busy Florence yet only 30 minutes away from it. The staff is friendly, some even speak English fluently. The restaurant menu was not spectacular but functional. Overall great value for money.

This hotel has been lovingly restored and is set to get better. It is isolated but the nearest station is a reasonably priced taxi ride away. It was really easy to get the Florence train. We chose this hotel on a cost basis being well located for touring and close to Florence. Our rooms were on the road side but... More

Stayed here on business in June. You don't get the warmest of welcomes if you are a foreigner but it is a lovely quaint, rustic hotel in a great location and the facilities are good. It has some nice grounds and the rooms although basic are fine. Compared to the over inflated prices in the middle Florence this is good... More
