Though we wanted to be mainly in Firenze, the unusual setting of this hotel, right on the river, made us book six nights at Mulino, an impressive establishment with all amenities modern, elegant, and service to match. We had a room opening to the wide, expansive terraces with borders washed by the grand river, running impetuously its centuries old waters.
The hotel offers a free shuttle to Firenze, book a day in advance to ensure place as they share this van with another establishment. The distance to the city is covered in 20-25 minutes and if you stay later in town, a taxi will cost 20 Euros to the hotel.
Our room was a decent size, well and tastefully furnished, comfy bed with fine linens, and the bath was spacious and well appointed. Cleanliness was immaculate.
The common areas are inviting, with a warm elegance, of an old noble manor, paintings of life in centuries past adorning all walls, light up by antique chandeliers, with a truly rich art history library.
The restaurant is elegant, the terrace overlooks the river and they are glad to serve you outside weather permitting. Breakfast is delicious, and the service prompt and pleasant.
We had dinner a few times, thought the food was satisfying, reasonably priced, but nothing outstanding. Yet, they cooked some more interesting risottos for us, when we asked.
The sauna and steam room are modern, spacious, easy to use and a perfect way of relaxing after a long day about the town. The outdoor swimming pool is certainly delightful in summer, and so should be any leisurely time spent within the grounds of this gem of rustic beauty, full of character and natural energy. A very special place in Tuscany that we'd always recommend.
