Villa Betania is located on the south side of the Arno, about a kilometer south of Porto Romano and two kilometers from the Ponte Vecchio. It's straight up a pretty good hill from the Porto Romano. You can walk to the old town, but it's a 30 minute trek along often very rough and sometimes very narrow sidewalks, and in... More

Plus points: Friendly staff, nice grounds, comfortable rooms, character. Very good if you have a car and want easy access to it as you leave it in the drive in front of the hotel. Negative: need to bus / cab into city. No restaurants immediately next to hotel ( some 15 mins walk). Walking into city possible but long and... More

We had high expectations based on the glowing reviews we read prior to booking. Our strategy for visiting tourist laden old towns is to find a nice 4 star or better hotel outside the walls within a reasonable walking distance. Except for the government 3 star rating, Villa Betania fit our strategy. In fact the walk to the Porto Romano... More

I checked the reviews before I booked and I was not disappointed. This was my partners 40th birthday surprise. The hotel is 20 mins easy walk to the centre of Florence or a 10 euro taxi or a bus if you prefer. The hotel is set in lovely Tuscan style gardens which are joy to wake up to. We had... More

This was one of the best places I have stayed on my trip. The villa is located a bit from from the hubbub, about 500 meters from the Porta Romana, in a large garden with tall shade trees. A bus stop nearby takes your directly into town, or for those who like walking, you can get into the Oltr'Arno on... More

Florence can be expensive and this hotel solves the problem. If you are driving, there is ample parking on the grounds of the hotel for 5 euro per day. The room is super clean, big spacious modern bathroom with all products. Breakfast was adequate and if you want to walk to the center, it takes about 25 minutes, downhill or... More

This hotel is a great find! It's located in a beautiful villa surrounded by a park. The rooms are very spacious, pretty and clean. The staff is kind and helpful. The hotel is a 20' walk from Ponte Vecchio, and the walk to get there is nice itself. In the back garden there are some tables and chairs which surely... More

Hotel was good for the price. I stayed in room 205 and the view was beautiful. The staff: night person – very friendly and helpful, day person – just OK. He could work on being a little friendlier considering his industry. The bed was too firm; uncomfortable. The water pressure was poor. I stayed for 2 nights. If I were... More
