“To not stay here on your trip to Florence would be a crime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I cannot say enough about this hotel. This place is top notch on all levels. We arrived at reception and the very friendly staff checked us in and gave us advice on Florence and the shuttle bus. The hotel is amazingly beautiful, even when walking to the room you feel as if you are walking through a historic Tuscan palace with paintings and sculptures (originals) all around you. We had our luggage delivered to our room by a porter, and our room was something a bit special - very high ceiling and chandelier, big flatscreen TV, huge comfy bed, ultra-clean bathroom with jacuzzi, and good desk space. Noise problems, day or night, were non-existent. The breakfast was extremely delicious, a big choice of cereals, pastries, fruit, bread, cold meats and cooked options (scrambled egg for example). As you eat breakfast you have a view of the rolling Tuscan hills in front of you. Utterly fabulous! The shuttle bus into Florence is very convenient and the ride into the city is actually very scenic through little villages and right along the Arno river. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent (the waiter even gave us a free starter) although a little pricey.
Overall I give the Villa Olmi Resort 100% top marks and can heartily recommend it for any visit to Florence and/or Tuscany.

We had a great stay at Villa Omi. We arrived late, they were awesome to receive us and check us in painlessly. Offered us little snacks, gave us the wifi code, just a pleasure. The decor was awesome. Tasteful painting from the 18th century along with tasteful furniture. The breakfast was not a part of our plan but we are there 1 morning and it was ok. The Shute service to the city was convenient and the lady who drove the bus was a resource herself. The receptionist were super friendly and helpful. Sabrina was the best of all. She recommended tremendous trattatoria's that only locals frequent and it was out if the world. They were helpful with everything. They also have a decent gym and free parking. We stayed there 7 nights and would love to go back.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with Villa Olmi Hotel. We were thrilled with ALL the beautiful furnishings around ever corner of the hotel including our room. The price for a standard room in a 5 star hotel was truly affordable. The serene garden view was truly relaxing. We knew the location was a bit out of town and away from the traffic and noise. Some tour companies provide transportation, we also used Tax's and scheduled the hotels shuttle bus. Someday, I hope to visit Villa Olmi Hotel again!!!

We stayed 3 nights with a car exploring the area, going to the outlets .Suite was beautiful, bathroom over the top stunning. A former private home, much thought went into the renovations. There is a shuttle that goes into Florence , but at this time of year very limited. I would not stay here if your intent is to be in Florence. Everything was very very good, except the breakfasts which were not particularly outstanding. Juice was fair , the rolls so so. A rather sad display. This however can be fixed as there is no excuse not to have a great continental breakfast. We ate at 2 local restaurants one fish that was actually quite outstanding and not expensive!

We stayed this place for four nights last Feb. We had a rent car so location wise, no problem! They have upgraded our room for our honeymoon, even gifted us with lovely champaign! Hot bath tub was fantastic ~! All hotel staff were extremely kind! My husband and i were so content with this place! Big market was also near by! i strongly recommend this grand palace for everyone! Now that we are back in Korea, we both miss this hotel and firenze so much!!! We thank you so much for all your wonderful services!

Villa Olmi was such a beautiful place to stay in Florence. We stayed 3 nights. It was a little short for choices for dinner if you don't have a car but we took a taxi to a casual pizzeria a couple of the nights only 5 mins away. But the hotel itself is definitely 5 star. The best service we have received our whole time in Europe. Upon arrival we were sat down and given welcome beverages and biscuits. Then we were shown to our gorgeous room. Only a standard room but the view of the grounds and of the Tuscan countryside were gorgeous and the size of the room was very comfortable. The grounds of the hotel are stunning and the rooms are too. Breakfast was very good. The restaurant at the hotel was lovely and excellent service, however a little pricy for us to be able to eat there every night. There was a shuttle bus into Florence twice a day which we made use of but the times are limited. It was worth it though. We loved it. My Tours tour company will also pick up and drop off to the hotel if you wish to do a tour.

I can't begin to tell you how Villa Olmi Resort was THE BEST PART of our trip to Italy. I loved this place so much that I spent one afternoon just sitting in the lobby surrounded by the beautiful collection of art. I will give Villa Olmi a 5 Star rating to the staff, the accommodations, the services and the resort.

The cost of the hotel room didn't even come close to what you will pay elsewhere. This was THE BEST VALUE OF MY ENTIRE TRIP! Now, I'm going back to Italy but I will head straight for Florence and to Villa Olmi Resort.

The breakfast was wonderful sitting in the heated covered area (we went in mid-December 2012) and the coffee was not only the best I had in Italy - but the best cup of coffee anywhere! Kudos to the woman who was servicing the breakfast.

The entire staff was wonderful and accommodating and they had someone take us on a tour of the entire property including the underground tunnel to the next building where I was so astounded to see the beautiful suites.

Our room had a view of the countryside and I now have my screensaver at work showing a series of photos I took from the room so I can remember the Tuscany Valley in all its splendor.

I truly miss sitting and having my cup of coffee looking out over the beautifully manicured gardens.

RECOMMENDATION: If you are going to Italy please stop in Firenze and stay at the Villa Olmi Resort.
