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

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

Let me start by saying, this was not the original place we booked for out stay in Florence. We arrived in Florence around 6:30pm and arrived out our destination to find somehow our reservation was mixed up and we did not have a place to stay. Panic began to set in. We called home to explain our situation to a... More

I love this hotel, staff were very accommodating, and the grounds were lovely. I felt like I was in Italy. The hotel was a bit of a maze but the 3 rooms that we had all had views. A couple of rooms had a large balcony in common, lovely views of the hills, but we did have to go out... More

okay.... so here is the disclaimer for my rating: this is not a 5 star hotel. It doesn't claim to be and you shouldn't book it if you are expecting 5 star service and accomodation. That said.... I would return to Villa La Stella in a heartbeat. For the price, it ticked every box... super clean, friendly, great location and... More

I have to admit being disappointed when I arrived at Villa la Stella. The double room was very small, though it had a great view, and there was a big, noisy school group of teenagers staying on the same corridor on the top floor. Due to the thickness of the walls, the internet wouldn't work in the room (WiFi, 10... More
