Very nice B&B with extremely friendly hosts. About 15 minute bus ride from start of Florence city center. Bus stop is immediately outside the Villa gate. Stayed with my mom in a room with two twin beds. Room was larger than expected for Europe, and had its own bathroom. The tub/shower was quite small with a handheld shower head but... More

We stayed in La Villa Sosta for 4 nights with our family of 4 (2 rooms). It is a big Villa in a quiet residential area which has been nicely transformed in a hotel. There is a parking inside the property which is very convenient. There is also a bus stop right in front of the Villa. The bus takes... More

We stayed in Villa La Sosta for 6 magical days. The place is outside of city center in a quiet and cozy neighborhood. The bus is just in front of the house. It takes about 10min by bus to get to city center, by walk it takes approximately 30min. It costs around 10 euro to get to the train station.... More

They are very accomodating, full of ideas and a joy to be with. They catered to my every wish and i had a lot of them! They directed us where to eat, what to see... More

We stayed at Villa La Sosta for eight glorious days and we can't say enough about the beautiful villa and its fabulous family. Our room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. There was a large sunroom on the third floor and a beautiful garden outside where you could relax, have a glass of wine or even have a... More

We had awesome stay here. The room was cool furnished and cozy. There was a nice terrace. The Villa is 10 minutes away from the Florence centre by bus which stops right in front of the hotel. Futhermore La Sosta is on the way to airport. There is a parking place. We both were happy.

We had a very comfortable stay, definitely unlike checking into a small hotel room. The moment we stepped into the villa, it felt as if we were home. The villa has a nice spacious living room on the ground floor and a nice chill area in the attic. Our room is charming and romantic in pink. The bed was big... More

It's a very special experience to stay in Villa la Sosta when visiting Florence. It completes your dive into the history and matches very well the spirit of the city. Above all, the owners are just amazing people - very friendly, welcoming and helpful, as well as caring about comfort of their guests. We had a very positive encounter with... More
