If you are looking for a romantic get away hotel, this is the perfect spot. Gorgeous views of Florence from the terraces, spacious rooms, and excellent restaurant. It was too cool to use the outdoor pool so I cannot comment. Walked up to the the village of Fiesole, a ten minute walk, which had wonderful little shops, and what we considered the best restaurants on our trip. Especially Terrazza 45 and Ristorante I'Poplal, both highly recommended. If you do not have a car, you can use the public bus to get down to the city.
