“Wonderful Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We stayed 3 nights at Villa Olmi at the start of our 2 week honeymoon trek through Tuscany. It was a great way to start. Lovely accommodations with modern infrastructure. Grounds are beautiful and we were sorry that our busy schedule did not allow us to enjoy them more. Staff was warm and helpful. Restaurant was wonderful but agree with earlier comment that the menu is limited. Great breakfast. Shuttle service was great to get into and out of central Florence but is limited in its hours of operation. Would love to go back.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stayed for 3 nights, as I saw the deal on their website which seemed to compare well to 4/5 star hotels in the centre, and we were travelling with a car (I didn't fancy driving in Florence). The buildings are very impressive, some of them go back to the 15th century. There are lots of paintings and statues in the lobby, and a fountain outside. Staff are attentive and polite.

The room was big, 4 poster bed (not that comfortable), and two portraits above the television in our room. It was a bit offputting, to be honest- I didn't really want to be watched when I was watching telly.

The hotel is out of the centre of Florence, and there isn't really anything to do, which I was a bit disappointed with a 5 star hotel. If you've got a car, it's a good base to explore Tuscany.

If you love the thought of staying in an old historic building, this is the place for you. Personally, we found that it was not particularly comfortable, and didn't really have any facilities of note. Nothing to do with the staff or management, but we would not stay here again.

We only stayed one night in this wonderful hotel and we were very pleased.
The hotel is very classy with beautiful interior and a super nice restaurant with
nice polite staff. When we arrived the desk manager, showed us around in a very
friendly way, yes we felt welcomed!
The breakfast was wonderful with everything.
As a nice touch there were 2 t-shirts as a present from the hotel, on our pillow when we went to bed. A beautiful relaxing hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was in 2 floors, not too convenient, try to find a room on 1 floor only.

Staff was exceptionally attentive. Hotel was comfortable. My only complaint was the lack of variety on the menu, if you are planning to eat supper there every night you may be bored after the second night with the selection off the menu. They have a set menu and we only ate there twice and found it annoying that there was not a greater selection of dishes for supper. Also while the food was unique off the menu we did have better meals elswhere in Tuscany for less cost. Breakfast was fantastic with a great variety of food/pastries/fruits etc. to choose from.

It's a little less convenient to the major sites in historic part of Florence, but easier to drive to other places than being inside the city. Free parking and convenient access to the major highways makes this great for touring other areas, and the free shuttle bus drops you inside the historic city. The rooms are wonderful, beautiful grounds and pool and the fabulous breakfast was the best we had in 2 weeks in Italy.

Just spent three days here with another couple. It is a lovely property close to downtown Florence yet quiet and luxurious. The rooms were well furnished, but some of the furniture was not functional (i.e., drawers too small to hold shirts and an armoire so massive my partner could not reach high enough to hang things up!). The room we had was extremely hot and they had started to shut the AC down for the season so they kindly moved us to another room that was 7 degrees Celsius cooler and far more liveable. Nice little gym in the basement with a good upright bike, but again the room was too hot for my liking. Interesting gallery of prints in the hallway to get to the gym! Breakfast was simply outstanding, with a huge variety of hot and cold offerings. While not a cheap place, we did get an excellent price due to the season. It is probably more of a 4 star property than a five, but would not take too much to get it back to the 5 stars that the Italian government has assigned it. A very pleasant place, overall.

Room Tip: The second room we had by the pool was cool and airy with a quiet garden out back. Lovely!
