Upon arrival we were shown to our beautiful suite, the service in the hotel is outstanding as is the view from the terrace. A big thank you to Maurizio, the concierge, who organised all our activities. Nothing is too much trouble and you are made to feel like one of the family,

This is a fantastic property in the hills immediately north of Florence. The views to the city are breathtaking. Equally alluring is the hotel itself- small, intimate, historic, elegant, friendly, beautiful and calm. This is a luxe oasis not to be missed. Our suite (upgraded from a Jr Suite) had views of both the city and the gardens, the latter... More

This was a stunning location and most excellent staff. The views are incredible, the food is fantastic, and the staff could not be more professional and genuine. I also loved our room, but the AC was a bit weak in the heat wave. The shuttle service to town was very handy. Common areas of the hotel are just spectacular! This... More

The best views imaginable; brilliant pool; the restaurant fantastic but oh dear oh dear the rooms! Tired decor, poor air conditioning - just not good enough at this price. On the plus side brilliant staff on reception make you feel welcome from the start and this level of service is there throughout.

From the service at reception to the general quality of everything in the room, the views, food and wines this place is the best. We had the tasting menu and wines. Both the food and quality of wines were magnificent. Some restaurants are mean with quality wines on a tasting menu but not the case here.

the view in amazing, yet sadly, this amazing property has lost it. 1stly, try to avoid room 70; the hotter the day, the greater the sewerage smell. The apology seemed manufactured; shock;horror; surprise; yet when we were moved to another room, someones else was moved in room 70. secondly, we asked for a walking track; we were advised to walk...

We came from a Belmond property in Sicily to this Belmond property and so we expected the best and were not disappointed. The setting is unique and magnificent. There is a quiet elegant charm about this hotel. While there are others here, their presence is soft and you feel that you have this enchanting location to yourself. Our room, number... More

Originally a monastery, this hotel is located on top of a hill overlooking Florence. The rooms are spacious, with huge bathrooms. The grounds are gorgeous. It was a little fancy (the hotel restaurant is apparently well known and has a dress code), but not overly pretentious. To get to the center of Florence, it is a 20 minute drive, but... More

Dear Cimi S, Thank you for your review and your beautiful description of the Hotel. Belmond Villa San Michele is a former monastery of the 15th century and our façade, attributed to Michelangelo, has certainly a strong impact as soon as you see it. The hotel is also unique for its location, high above Florence with the greatest views over... More

Beautiful location and pool. Great for combining sightseeing with relaxing. Free shuttle bus into the city fantastic but not the every 20 minutes as advertised on the website. Really friendly staff. However, silly prices for drinks (€7.50 for a coke, wine starts at around €40 a bottle) and snacks (pizzas from €17) however the set tasting menu in the restaurant... More
