“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We loved our stay at II Salviatino,.....anniversary treat!

Great service, beautiful location, stylish and relaxed ambiance. Complementary shuttle bus a real bonus

Sitting on the gorgeous terrace, looking at stunning views and eating delicious food, happy days!

We would definitely recommend, a really special place

My wife & I stayed here for three nights and were thoroughly impressed in every sense. The staff are attentive, helpful and always on hand to assist in whatever you need. Our room was on the third floor and had a small balcony, a bed that would have fitted four people and a wonderful old metal bath. The room was well appointed with a good selection of books, coffee machine, safe and everything else you would expect in a top hotel.
There is a free shuttle bus that runs into town and drops you right at the base of the Duomo and returns you directly to the hotel, it runs every hour from each point apart from the very middle of the day.
The food is amazing and although the menu is slightly small they certainly do know how to produce first class food. The wine list is extensive and broad - if slightly expensive. The breakfast is generous and has a really good choice.
The pool is a little disappointing and is small walk away from the hotel. The view is one to die for. Especially at night when the city is lit up.

If you want to treat yourself, or someone else, then this really is the hotel for you.

I stayed here for a week with my entire family and friends for my wedding. We booked out 10 rooms in the hotel and spent a significant amount of money securing these rooms a year in advance. Hence why I was extemly concerned when there was 2 of our bookings missing when we checked in, this was rectified but after causing much stress! The hotel and rooms are beautiful, however they are not worth the extremely high price tag, for a 5 star hotel not to replace bath soaps and creams everyday is very unusual, this was replaced once and then never again. Breakfast is very inefficient the waiters bring a tray to the table which looks lovely but we waited 40 minutes for this tray which is ridiculous! We also booked the alfresco suite for our wedding night and was promised the room early in the morning by the managing director, on my wedding day we went to get the key to find out they had sold the room the day before a stress I didn't need on my wedding day when my 7 bridesmaids and 3 hair and make up artists arrived ready to set up. The hotel did however make up for this by giving us another suite but this was not the same as the alfresco. Overall this is a beautiful hotel but service is poor and the for the price it isn't worth it.

We stayed here for a week and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The service is impeccable, the room was fantastic and the food was great. The location is absolutely beautiful - just unbelievably gorgeous.

The hotel is situated about ~20 minutes outside of the city, so the hotel has a complimentary shuttle that runs every half hour. It's a perfect solution to staying outside the city center and it's fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel, honestly. It was fantastic.

Amazing place. Great rooms. We were upgraded without even asking and had a private study on a SECOND FLOOR with views of the city and countryside and a bathtub in a loft. Delicious food. The complimentary breakfast could feed an army. Beautiful pool which is great for the hot days. Most accommodating staff you can imagine. You could barely finish your sentence before they were on it. We will definitely be returning.

We stayed two nights at il salviatino on a trip through tuscany in June. The house itself, the nice rooms and of course the awesome service are great. As already mentioned in other reviews the hotel is not located in citycenter but the free shuttle brings you directly to piazza del duomo which is perfect. Also we want to mention the great breakfast and the nice pool which we also used one (very hot) afternoon. We didn't try the restaurant but relied on some nice recommendations from the receptionist in the village of Fiesole. From there you have a breathtaking view over Florence. Only drawback is of course the high price, however, in this respect we feel the overall package is simply worth the money.

I recently stayed at this hotel and I found myself very well. The hotel is not in the city center but well connected to it thought a free shuttle service. My room was in the main building on the first floor. Room very nice, with arched windows typical of the Tuscany overlooked the garden and vegetation. Everything was very clean. the pool of the hotel, as well as the small spa in this hotel, it's nice but a little 'insignificant for the structure. The restaurant is very nice and also the splendid library with priceless works of literature. Ideal for relaxing outside the busy city! recommended!
