“Wonderful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Junior suite in the villa was amazing

We staid at Villa Olmi the last 5 days in April and enjoyed it very much. The service was very good and the staff friendly and helpful in a personal and relaxed way. However, the restaurant was not 100 % up to the place's standards. The menu did not change.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are spacious (superior rooms) absolutely worth the extra price.

We spent three nights at the Villa Olmi. The room was very nice with beautiful furnishings. The front of the hotel location was a bit noisy a couple of nights, with late arriving guests in a large bus. Most of the time, however, this setting was so welcoming and peaceful, especially after the hustle and bustle of Rome. Strolling the grounds after breakfast was a very nice way to start the day! We did have a car, but used the free shuttle bus to go into downtown Florence. The "south of the Arno" location was perfect for exploring Tuscany and the vineyards. We dined in the hotel restaurant one night, and were the only guests there. The food, wine and service were excellent. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Villa Olmi, one of the few that really deserve five stars.
Very family- friendly and hospitable. Perfect service and perfect cleaning.
During my stay the TV-sets where small and outdated but I was promised new big HDTV screens where to arrive next week. The food at dinnertime is not something to consider really. They don´t have enough guests to keep up a top cuisine. They should focus on antipasti and good wines instead. Breakfast is very nice and meditative with the lovely orchard outside. Big green lawns for kids to play on. A small but nice gym. Plenty of art around the place. The disgusting copies of old masterpieces should be thrown in the bin though. After a full day in Firence, Lucca or Venice, it´s truly nice to return to Villa Olmi and relax. Lenny LePin

My wife and I spent a whole week at the Villa Olmi and it was well worth it. A five star Hotel on the outskirts of Florence. Easy to reach off of the Highways. Peaceful and Quiet with wonderful views.

Great:
Price
Customer Service
Free Shuttle into Florence
Free Parking
Jacuzzi in Bath tub
Free Water daily
Turndown Service
Nice Bedding

Only item that wasn't Great:
Breakfast did not meet a five star level, more of a three star but it was included and free.
Our room was over the Breakfast area and so we had some noise.

We will surely visit again.

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.
