Recommended by friends who have had three generations of family stay here over the years. This is probably the best location in the area for vistas of Florence, with amazing sunsets thrown in. The pensione does not have TV and is designed for total relaxation, although WI-fi signal excellent. The rooms are basic but fit into the nature of the... More

A few years ago we had been up the hill to Fiesole on an open top bus from Florence. We decided it would be a wonderful to stay, to wake up in the morning and see that amazing view and if we were lucky have breakfast on a terrace overlooking the city. This is just what we were able to... More

We apologise for taking so long to post this review (though can't imagine you will have been anything but 'fully booked' in any case!), but it in no way means we didn't enjoy ourselves immensely - we DID!!! Carla, Beatrice and all the team once again made all our party most welcome, and cared for us better than anywhere I... More

Stayed here for two nights in our tour around Italy. What a fab find. The views are breathtaking. The owners were lovely. Would come back. Could do with a tea tray in the room. Also the breakfast staff could be a little more friendly as the owners were fantastic. Would recommend to anyone staying in fiesole.

Delightful and welcoming family run hotel. Situated in the hills overlooking the city of Florence means a little cooler in season, and stunning views of Florence City from the hotel terrace. A pleasant, although uphill walk to the small town of Fiesole gives more views and a selection of restaurants. Travel into the city of Florence is by a reliable... More

What a great place to stay after the heat and noise of Florence. This was picked ahead of a 4*hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and it was thoroughly justified. The setting is stunning, the buildings fascinating and the family most hospitable. Views from the dining terrace are outstanding. The food too is very good, although to maximise what they do... More

Wonderful hotel, with lovely terrace which actually has much better views over Florence than another more famous and five star hotel along the road. Elegant and stylish house, family run hotel. Really good staff, caring and thoughtful. Excellent food, and a delightful atmosphere. Rooms basic and unpretentious, but have great character. I love the place.Excellent value.

Imagine opening your bedroom window to see a wonderful view of Florence; an Italian breakfast and, after a long day, a good homely evening meal with an excellent and decently price wine list. Look no further than the Bencista. This family-run pensione is a real gem. They have a very high return rate. The rooms are simple but perfectly adequate.... More

We had the pleasure of staying overnight here twice, both before and after a Beach's Motorcycle Adventures tour. Our first stay found us in a room with a fabulous view of Florence, with a large, comfortable bed and a compact bathroom. Two weeks later our room faced up the mountain with a garden view. This room was larger in all... More

Pension Bencista is a well run family owned hotel nestled in the hills above Florence minutes from the city center. Beautiful old villa with outstanding views over Florence and surrounding countryside. Charming and welcoming clean rooms, excellent service , Bencista is the perfect base from which to discover Tuscany. Highly recommended !
