To start our trip around Chianti and Maremma aria in Toscana, we chose Villa il Mosaico because the Hertz rental car office was nearby. (We wanted to avoid driving in the middle of Firenze city.) They have several rooms furnished differently (both two rooms we stayed were beautiful). We would like to return this villa if we have chance to... More

We stayed for 6 nights, all in all very good. 5 minutes from the tram line to the center of Florence which is just 15 minutes away... Stylish, clean, well furbished. All modern but with a touch of old style. We were in apartment number 11 and we had a fantastic stay. Quiet, with everything you need for a short... More

Although we are probably coming more often to Florence, I avoid this hotel in future. We made no good experience when the entrance card during the night did not open and we could not enter the house anymore/standing on the street. Unpleasant: There even was no "sorry" from the guests, just "It should have been our fault, why the card... More

staff went out of their way to help us: - unfortunately late October (27 and on) in Florence, it can get very cold especially at night, but as we were told the Italian state would fine anyone turning on their heat. Feel bad for the Italians, shivering their way into December. Maybe the authorities making up these stupid laws, live... More

Behind the impressive gates lies a place of contrast and charm. The apartments are connected yet quiet and the sounds of the village ring out creating a bit of charm and character. The inside of each apartment is very different creating a intimate and varied space. With eco-friendly features the location both supplies and lacks. It supplies light through gracious... More

The villa is beautiful and well-kept. It was very clean, as well. It is an neighborhood just outside of the city centre and easily accessible by the tram. TIP: If staying for a few days, make sure you get a tourist tram pass. It’s a great value for the money, and the tram runs frequently all day/night. We stayed in... More

Not sure how to rate it. The Villa is clean and spacious. The grounds are cute as is the terrace. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The 2 bedroom apartment we had is really for a couple with 1 or 2 kids. It's not made for 4 adults. The "2nd bedroom" is a loft above the first bedroom. You... More

The price of the room online and what we paid was much higher than the ones publicized directly at the place. The room for three persons was just under the roof (therefore very warm, despite the air conditioning--filled with mosquitos) and did not correspond to the description. Certainly, not corresponding to the cost of the room. For that price, one... More

This place is lovely and would have received an 'Excellent' had it not been for the location. The apartments are clean, spacious and attractive. The courtyard is beautiful as well as the rooftop terrace. The terrace is good as a getaway after a long day of walking. No view though... The bathroom was clean, but the shower controls were either... More
