“Great Place but a little far”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

There is almost nothing bad to say about this hotel except it is hard to get into and out of without a vehicle. The staff is wonderfull, the resteraunt nearby is excellent, and the view is just specatular. I stayed at this place almost a year ago and i still remember it fondly despite the 1/4 mile walk up a steep hill everday to travel into florence proper.

It's a great place to stay if visiting the Tuscany area by car. I would only recommend this place if you have your own car as it's on top of a 1mile long windy steep hill. The view from the top is great. The restaurant up top is ok but I prefer the one right at the bottom of the hill just to the south(along the major road) because it's a better value. The rooms are very clean and modern in decor. We stayed at the 2nd building and not the main building where the front desk is at. Free wifi near front desk and the included breakfast buffet is very good.

We spent our honeymoon in Firenze, and I wanted to book a romantic hotel. However, it was rather a nightmare.
After the first night we noticed some blood spots on our beddings, so we thought the beddings were not washed properly. We recognized each night new blood spots, and had no idea about their origin.
After a few nights we discovered plenty of small bugs in our bed, some of them were full with blood. We called the staff immediately, they moved us to a new room, and apologized, but this didn't help us: even after 4 days we are full with bed bug bites, we have to disinfect our clothes, our car, and most probably even our apartment.
However, the hotel is on a really nice location, and the staff is friendly (but not all speak english)!

Thanks for your hospitality, never again!

Room Tip: do not get room 210!

Location - ok I booked this off Hotels.com and the address provided was vague and madi it very difficult to find this Hotel. But once we found it we couldn't have been more pleased. The room overlooked the terrace...not a great view - but take a walk around the hotel and the views were phenominal. It is at the top of a hill - we had our own car, and their is free parking.

The room : A great size, the TV was a little small - but since we were there to explore Italy and not watch TV - no big deal. The bathroom was very nice as well - a good size and clean.

The Hotel - As mentioned a bit hard to find, but a great location with a stunning view. We did not get a chance to try the restaurant next door but the menu looked great and the prices reasonable.

The rate we paid was amazing - about $60 cdn a night and included breakfast. Which was served on the second floor each morning.

The staff were very helpful and friendly - did their best to help considering I did not speak Italian..they did their best to answer my questions in English.

Visiting Florence. We were just a few minutes from this beautiful city and spent the day visiting the churches, museums, market and other Must Sees.

Room Tip: Google the address and directions.

Stayed there for 1 night. The hotel was clean with friendly staff. The breakfast(not complimentary) was good. The beds were clean. The bathroom was tidy with sufficient towels for 3 peple. What we liked the most was the view from our room.
The restaurant adjacent to the hotel was excellent with reasonable rates. The only issue was that we had to walk a lot uphill (15-20 mins) to reach this hotel. The path is really steep. You need to get bus no 37 from SMN and get down at Mountebuoni(you need to ask the locals for exact bus stop). It took us 30 mins to reach the hotel. If you are in a hurry, then this may not be the place for you. Ideal place for 3-4 days stay in Florence.

We stayed at the Villa Ambrosina for 7 days in June 2010. We travelled to the Moto GP in Mugello (around an hours scenic drive away). The hotel was clean & well kept. We hired a car and always managed to park even though the parking is limited. We did struggle to find the hotel when arriving. Our sat nav took us to the right road but the hotel is quite hidden away so look out for the road side sign! Next to the hotel is a beautful restaurant, with very fresh food & reasonable prices. The hotel had a small bar which was nice. Its not too far from Florence Centre, its actually a nice drive to Florence & there is also another drive which takes you to a view point with views over Florence (Ponte Vecchio etc). Enjoyed our stay and would hapily stay here again.

This hotel is only accessible by car. You need to drive from the hotel to a bus parking lot to take the bus into Florence (about 30 mins on bus). The hotel staff was very unfriendly and unhelpful. Our TV did nto work and nobody bothered coming to look at it. The internet in our rooms did not work and nobody bothered to do anything about it (even though we paid for it). When we asked about the best way to get to florence we were pointed in the general direction of where the bus parking lot is supposed to be (not the easiest to find). The hotel staff also failed to mention that after a certain hour the bus number changes to get back into town. Very small rooms. Overall i was disappointed with this hotel. If the staff at least a little bit attemted to be more helpful our stay would have been significantly better.
