I booked a room at the hotel for a weekend in December (2010) to propose to my girlfriend.
I am a seasoned traveller and have stayed in numerous up-market hotels globally and wanted to find the very best Florence has to offer. I heard of the hotel from some friends and decided to stay there, a decision I certainly do not regret. From our arrival all the way throughout the stay, the service was absolutely fantastic.
First, you have an "ambassador" who is allocated to you for your entire stay. The hotel also helped me organise the entire weekend (quite important considering I was to propose to my girlfriend).
Upon arrival and following a drive through the beautiful gardens, our ambassador greeted us at the entrance of the hotel and took us straight to our suite, no check in hassle or queues! We had a fantastic suite overlooking the city of Florence with the very best is furniture, amenities and technology.
During the weekend, the hotel organised our city trips, a visit to the food market with the chef of the hotel (who then cooked the food we purchased in the morning in a 5 course meal), transport etc.
We ate in the restaurant one day and the food and service was fantastic! A great experience that can match some of the best food offers I have experienced here in London.
What has stayed with me the most was the excellent service and friendliness of the staff! They are very helpfull, always there when you need someone (without being obstrusive) and they have ensure that both my fiancee and myself had an unforgettable experience!
I know the hotel is to add some more suites and another up-market restaurant next year and I will certainly stay again at the Il Salviatino!
I cannot recommend this hotel enough!
