“Did not meet expectations..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2007

We have stayed at Il Magnifico Oct 09-12.2007.
This hotel is OK, but it did not meet our expectations because it is run not as Bed and Breakfast with personal touch and hartly Italian hosts, but as a very basic hotel. The owners were nice, but we hardly saw them at all.
We felt that we did not get sufficient value for our money.
The place is very nice inside with antic style florentine furnishing and spacy bathrooms. The shower is good, which is rare. It was also good to have wireless internet, which is rare as well.
Hovewer, our room was very stuffy and full of moskitoes. We coudn't open the window and the air conditioning was very loud (literally worked as a 5 t truck), so we couldn't sleep at night.
The breakfast area was furnished beautifully, but the breakfast was very basic (not a hartly Italian breakfast which was advertised); coffee from the coffee machine, butter, cheese, some bread and cookies. Everything from the fridge, nothing fresh.
I would not recommend this hotel to my friends because there are better places in Florence for the price.

Dear Guest,
we are very sorry you went through this negative experience during your visit at Villino il Magnifico in 2007 and just wanted to let you know that there's a new management since February 2010.
Our family set the bases of its daily work on a warm atmosphere and attention to details.
Therefore most of our guests really feel at home !!!
Besides the breakfast we serve daily is rich and fresh and rooms details were bettered wherever needed.
We sincerely hope to have you as our guest again here in Florence...we are confident you would taste the difference.

Warmest Regards
Villino il Magnifico
