I was in Florence for a conference at the nearby EUI and while the rooms were somewhat small, it was a great, quiet place to prepare for the conference (and to rest in the aftermath thereof). Above all else, the staff were delightful, friendly, and extremely helpful (special thumbs up for Agata at the front desk). They helped me out... More

Villa la Stella is a beautiful place with a stunning view. Particularly enjoyed the seclusion, though getting around Firenze is quite simple from the convent. There's an expansive breakfast and the staff is very friendly and multi-lingual. Well worth your time and money. I had some initial trouble with directions so here's the easiest way to get there: Directions from... More

Nice quiet place, you have to visit San Domenico (nice tipical restaurants) and Fiesole (nice view over Florence), too! Bus Nr. 7 to Firenze City (ca 20 min) just infront of the road, som meters to the house, but elevator in the Villa, no problem with the luggage.

Villa La Stella is a nice place to stay in. Although it's a little bit old fashioned and simple, it's very clean. Breakfast buffet is a little bit poor (or maybe it was out of season). The garden and whole neighborhood is really nice.

Villa La Stella is a beautiful place, very clean and the staff was lovely and helpful. A good breakfast buffet is included. It is a good choice for students or anyone on a tight budget as it is a very good value. However, the rooms are small and very plainly furnished, like a room in a college dorm.

The staff's service started when we arrived to the train station and we called for directions, the desk clerk was courteous and helpful, same when we arrived and checked in. The room was very clean and had all the amenities desired by travelers. The location is quiet and ideal; walk a few meters and take Bus route 7 and get... More

We booked a double room with view over the city. When we got there they said they have sent me an email to let me know that they did not have a dbl room left. They offered me an apartment on the rooftop with tiny windows for the same price. This is according to staff the nicest room i think... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the end of December with a group of 45 student travelers. It is located on a hill which is not accessible for a bus therefore, we had to trudge up and down with suitcases and various bags.The hotel is a maze and has numerous steps at every turn. I shudder to... More
