Staying here was a wonderful experience, we came here for my birthday as a family of four. Villa Tolomei was peaceful, the views were stunning. I especially liked the considerate hotel guests who maintained the calm by speaking softly during times such as breakfast. It seemed the people here wanted to get away and the staff were aware of this... More

We drove from Rome to our hotel overlooking Florence.... When we pulled in (tired and stressed... being Americans driving the narrow streets of Italy can be hairy!) we were greeted by a member of the staff. Either they keep tabs on who's coming up the long cypress lined driveway or they're just that efficient! We finally made our way inside,... More

This hotel has great views, pool, and free breakfast. The staff were all very accommodating and polite. The rooms were nice but musty from poor bathroom venilation. There was what appeared to be water damage in the closet from the bathroom. This was not a 5 star hotel, but then again this hotel was priced well below most other 5... More

We were two couples who had married in London in the morning and by the early evening were enjoying cocktails on the terrace looking over Florence. We had our honeymoon dinner outside as the city lights burned bright and we couldn't have wishes for a better place to spend the next few days. As others have mentioned, this is a... More

As you enter the gates into the grounds of the villa you are surrounded by olive groves and a vineyard. The rolling hills of Tuscany surround you and the only noise is that of the breeze in the trees and and song of the bird. We were welcomed politely and ordered a coffee which was given to us free of... More

Stayed in the summer and found the Hotel to be superb. The staff were attentive and the facilities were superb. It's out of the way but close enough to walk into Florence if you fancy a challenge - we didn't! We asked reception for a recommendation for dinner one evening. We wanted "local" and somewhere the "locals" would go to... More

My wife and I stayed in Villa Tolomei for 4 nights whilst on our honeymoon. Florence is a lovely city and the location of Villa Tolomei is great as it is set on a hill overlooking the city of Florence. Sunsets are beautiful and the atmosphere is very pieceful. While the hotel is nice, very clean and in a beautiful... More

This hotel is truly superb. The setting is magical as you drive up to it through a tiny village it feels like the heart of the Italian countryside. Once inside the hotel you look out from the windows at the back and the whole of Florence is laid out before your eyes. The view from the terrace is spectacular. It... More

I have been to Villa Tolomei with a friend and really had a great time. Service was tremendous and very friendly and helpful. We forgot to request a double bed room at the beginning. The next day the queen size bed was replaced by two separate beds. Location wise, the hotel is a dream. Beautiful scenery of the Tuscan countryside... More
