We arrived after 1am at the hotel, after a six hour drive, and the manager greeted us warmly - despite us arriving well past our check-in time. The natural landscape around this small hotel was spectacular and it was a pleasant contrast to some of the busy locations that are full of tourists. Our room was comfortable and clean, and... More

We chose this hotel as an overnight stay after exploring Florence. The hotel is in the countryside well away from the highway, so it took a while to get there. There was some sort of banquet going on the first floor where the restaurant was but it was still open to the public. We were not too keen to dine... More

Goodmorning Mr.Serge A, we thank you for taking 2 minutes of your time to review our hotel. We are very surprised and disappointed about what we read. In 40 years of work, like you can see on the reviews of Tripadvisor, Booking.com etc., no one ever told us that he had found bugs in the hotel. We think that unfortunately... More

A nice, quiet place out in the country, but only 40 minutes from Florence. Several good restaurants within 5 km each way. Nice rooms, some with airy balconies. Nice staff. Negatives: a couple of dangerous steps to watch out for, a bit of freeway noise in the distance, and it can get noisy on the patio and around the entrance.... More

The staff wandered about aimlessly, seemingly unable to so much as dim the blinding lights on each balcony (there is no switch in the room). Staff slammed doors everywhere with vigor and enthusiasm--much the same way Italians use their horns in traffic--and there appears to be no soundproofing in the building. There is a freeway bridge spanning the canyon directly... More

A lovely way to see the city without the hassle ( and free parking ) Hotel is very clean, wonderfully stylish and... More

We only stayed 1 night in this hotel, on our way to south Italy. I can absolutely recommend this hotel. We had a spacious room with a nice balcony. The room was basic but stylish decorated. The bathroom was also large and all very clean. Breakfast was perfect and the front desk people were very friendly. We had diner in... More

The hotel is quite small and the rooms are as well and it's located quite far from Florence, but it's a place where you can actually breath in the hot summer months. The prices are fair compared to Florence, you can skip breakfast if you can, it's all sweets. There is a nice pond where you can swim in the... More

We had seen this hotel on the internet and by the sound and look of it , we really wanted this to be the hotel to stay in Florence. We did not book but just turned up. It was booked out but we were allowed to have a quadruple room for 5 people and it was very comfortable. The hotel... More

After a very long evening drive from Venice to La Selva, getting rather lost as soon as we left the motorway. Had some terrifying driving around the hills to get to the hotel at night where although the speed limit is 70km/h there are extremely sharp bends which are not seen at night. No cats eyes anywhere needed it seems... More
