The view is amazing, rooms are clean and I mean that! Food is always fresh, good portions and very tasty. Staff is helpful with a smile, any time you need something. The very best hotel so far and I have been in a lot! I went three times at 2014 and 2015. I will go back!

This will not gain me any favors with the more cultured travelers, but I found Florence highly overrated. One can nowadays mark as an accomplishment merely being able to walk its narrow streets and avoid being poked in the eye by ever-present selfie sticks. Want culture? Prepare to stay in lines for long times. Loud yakking all around. Does this... More

We were a group of friends who had come in from Australia to celebrate a friends birthday in Florence. Vittorio and his staff were attentive, courteous and so professional. The food was amazing and buildings, gardens and surroundings were awe inspiring. The views of Florence were just breathtaking. The car services that picked us up from our apartment and took... More

With the facade and loggia said to have been designed by Michelangelo, this puts you in the picture. The former monastery, elegantly set on a hill overlooking and on the edge of Florence is just stunning. The gardens are beautiful, too. Being just out of Florence you can avoid the hustle and bustle, but the hotel's shuttle runs regularly to... More

We spent a long weekend here celebrating a significant birthday. The hotel staff are wonderful. Everyone greets you warmly, English is not a problem if your Italian is as bad as ours is and nothing is ever too much of a problem for them. The location and views over Florence make this a very special place indeed. I had wanted... More

Having stayed at the Villa San Michele on our honeymoon, we decided to come back again to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel did not disappoint. Its location is of course magnificent with breathtaking views over Florence. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a beautiful junior suite with our own private terrace.

Our family of four stayed at Villa San Michele for 3 nights. We had separate rooms, one for our two children and one for my wife and I. Everything about our visit was truly 5 star. Of all the international travel we have done over the years, this hotel, the staff and the entire experience remains as #1.

Our one night stay at Hotel Belmond Villa San Michele in Fiesole, Italy, was one I’ll never forget. At first glance our room seemed elegantly simple with a rustic theme, but upon further inspection a double door leading to a terraced porch could be found. When standing or sitting on the porch, a magnificent view overlooking the entirety of Florence... More

This exclusive hotel is tucked into the side of a mountain and was once a 15th Century monastery. Old fresco's are still seen in the main building. The rooms in the main building are small so make sure you ask for one of the rooms built into the hillside underneath the lawn. Remember, Monks lived there for centuries! As you... More
