We visited San Michele during a family holiday to Tuscany. We had been to Pisa to see the Tower in the morning and had booked for lunch at 1:30pm on the Terrace over looking Florence. The Tom Tom did send us through some narrow back roads to get to the hotel, luckily we found a more direct route down the... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at VSM. The property is everything other reviewers have stated. It's just beautiful. The driver who met us at the airport explained that Fiesole is the Beverly Hills of Tuscany/Florence. If that is the case, then VSM is equivalent of the Beverly Hills Hotel! We were upgraded to the Michelangelo Suite upon... More

Service is mixed some amazing staff there some terrible. The key for our room did not work... More

We did not stay in the hotel, only spent an hour there as recommended by our driver. The views of Florence were spectacular...the hotel and bar staff was amazing and helpful. The hotel is built into the side of the hill (or mountain), with rooms sculpted into the hillside. Unbelievable. It looks like actually staying in an ancient site.

We just arrived back from our holiday in Florence. First impressions were very good and we drove up to the top of the hill in our hire ford car. However, when we got there no one was there to greet us but when we walked in we were greeted by the extremely friendly concierge. Later that day we made out... More

We stayed for four nights in July in the Garden Room, which is a beautiful room in its own building and with its own terraces to the side of the main hotel. This hotel is just wonderful.
