This hotel is superb. You feel like a millionaire from a 1970 Fellini film. It is set in a park near the gardens. Ideally you can drive here since there is parking and walk to all the sights. The rooms are large and are similar to the old Plaza hotel in NY. If you want to experience travel the way... More

We liked our stay as this small hotel is a converted old mansion set in a spacious park. Parking is safe and the daily charge is reasonable. The walk to Ponte Veccio is nice but we did it only once; otherwise we took taxis (approx. 12 Euro 1 way). Breakfast is - for Italian standards - not bad. I like... More

Very quiet place on the top of the hill. If you want to stay away from the tourists and neverending noise of the streets, this is just the perfect place. The room was rather spacious. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was good to italian standards. There is also piano ando fireplace in the lobby, which makes this... More

Imagine yourself at the end of a day in Florence - pleasurably overwhelmed by the art treasures, the delicious food, perhaps one too many gelati, the sunshine and shopping (a common occurrence). You need to recharge your battery and escape the hubbub, crowds and city commotion. Cross over the ponte vecchio, assuming you're on the busier north side, walk a... More

A nice house, to the South of Florence centre. Friendly staff. More like staying in a private villa, than a hotel. 20 minute walk into town. Bus stop right outside. No restaurant out of season, but they recommended some good places nearby.

We stayed as a family of four, and had a large room in the loft space with balcony. Perfect accommodation for privacy, staff were exceptionally helpful and practical with advice on how to make the most of this beautiful city. The pool looks nothing like the photographs, although we visited late season, but this was the only thing we were... More

This is a converted villa, set back from the access road, so it is quiet, with a lot of authentic ambiance. There actually is on-site parking, something that is quite rare in Florence. Access is quite good, you can reach most places in Florence within minutes by car. As for the old town/historical center, it is within walking distance (downhill)....about... More

Superb location in a park close to historic sites. Atmospheric hotel, feels like a family home. Very well taken care of by sympathetic friendly owner couple and attentive caring staff. Nice setting in garden with old trees. Wonderful fire place in stylish living room. Spacious public rooms with authentic feel and design details. Just a taxi ride from historic center.... More

Excellent hotel, quiet and breathtaking view. Big room, great bathroom and good space. The host Laura was amazing and helpful, she gave us explanation about the major attractions and distance. Great breakfast with variety of bread, cheese, and local food. The distance from major attractions are around 15 to 20 min but is a beautiful path. We really recommend this... More

We chose this hotel for the second part of our honeymoon, having spent the first part in Rome. We wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful, with a pool to relax in after a day of sightseeing, and we certainly weren't disappointed. The location of the hotel is excellent, out of the city centre and yet within easy reach of the city.... More
