We stayed at Villa Olmi in March 2013, we visit Florence every year and normally base ourselves in the centre of the city but always spend a few days visiting other parts of the area. This year we decided to stay outside of the city and found this wonderful hotel in its own little oasis but close to the motorway network and with free parking. We did not want for anything, the staff were excellent from arrival to departure,we found the breakfast really good with plenty of choice both hot and cold, everything you could want and you only had to ask if you needed something more. We had the most amazing junior suite with a huge bathroom with jacuzzi bath well worth paying the extra as this room really had the wow factor, in fact the whole hotel did. We ate in the restaurant and found the food of a high quality, as you would expect in a five star hotel, we also had bar snacks which were excellent and reasonably priced.
The daily shuttle times in to Florence were perfectly adequate for our requirements but I do understand some people might want to stay longer. We did use a taxi one day, very easy to find in Florence, they are located near the duomo. Make sure you ask the driver before you set off for the cost we paid 16 euros very reasonable! It usually costs us 35 euros a day to park the car in Florence. Our whole experience at this hotel was just perfect and I doubt we will ever stay in the centre of Florence again as Villa Olmi has everything we need. I am looking forward to returning again next year.
