This hotel is fabulous - beautiful rooms, great staff, wonderful views and stunning setting. It would have five stars except - the food in the restaurant was almost inedible. It looked great but tasted awful and the breast of duck was so tough as to be inedible; the risotto had no flavour and I could only eat three fork fulls. For a really special 5 star hotel this is a shame. The pool and the view from it is incredible. As is the view from the restaurant. Look at the views; look at the food - just don't eat it.

We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Tolomei. It is just out of town but gives a very different feeling as you are surrounded by olive trees and chirping birds. I even spotted a roe in the morning! Breakfast is good but not exceptional. Cakes are a nice touch but their taste is mediocre. The room we stayed in was in the main villa. Very spacious and comfortable. Given the price paid we thought it exceeded expectations. Staff is courteous and helpful. Given the location we would highly recommend this hotel! The pool was cold but magnificent places.......

No welcome tour. Even after being their for three nights we probably didn’t see all the features. Room smaller and not to the expectations of five star Poorly placed outlets and inadequate for modern traveler. Each day maids would unplug our outlets Shower ridiculous (see picture below) Spigot in sink so poorly placed -(picture) One morning locked door forced us outside in rain and mud Not close to central Florence, 15 euros each way to town Front desk staff friendly No cooked to order option at breakfast Asked for a wine bottle opener and told there is only one for the entire hotel

When you drive up the alley that leads to the villa you already get the feeling that the holidays here will be quite special. Renaissance-style rooms with frescoes, a stunning view across Florence during breakfast, a pool and a very good gym make this hotel a great pick. Dinner at the restaurant is a highlight, we recommend the bolgheri from the wine list. The hotel is surrounded by a vineyard and olive trees (see photo attached) - we even saw a couple of deers on the estate.

This is not close to a five star hotel. First it is 15euro each way to heart of Florence. Started with no tour. Walls paper thin. Very small shower. Rooms not close to our expectations. Can’t find anything to recommend about hotel. Strange layout have go inside and outside to get to room.

This hotel was obtained through travel zoo. It is deceiving that it shows on pictures close to the area where all the Cathedrals and museums are located. It is up on a hill not close to anything. One morning we walked 50 minutes but typically we took a taxi. On the morning we walked, we were not told by the front desk that taxi's were on strike that particular day. ( Later she apologized) We spent 45 minutes in the evening trying to locate a taxi. We finally called the hotel and they found a private service that cost $50.00. We expressed our disappointment, but the hotel never offered to pay any of that bill. We actually drove there and could have easily driven that day had we been told the information. The breakfast, which was included was very good. The room fairly nice too but honestly, the place is a bit run down. If the location was closer it might get more attention. But, we were overall disappointed with our stay, especially for the $250.00 per night.

It is a really spacious hotel, with nice and quiet areas. Nice reception and staff who help where they can. It is easy to find and 5 carminutes to the gates of Florence old town, so really close. We enjoyed the stay.

This hotel is located in a wonderful quiet environment, a 20 min walk to Firenze center. But why this is a 5 star hotel ? Must be their own rating ! It is definitely long gone glory, with very bad service. Room decorations need an upgrade. The staff are friendly enough, but it is all very disorganised. Trying to get a beer around 7.00 PM was a big challenge. The pool bar is closed and the other bar is not open yet. Having to serve breakfast at the table in Corona times must be a challenge for hotels. But they bring out a cheese and cold cut tray and then forget about the bread basket. We got bread after asking 5 x, yes 5. We were thinking every day about the famous British TV show called Fawlty Towers. For those who know the TV Show, well then you know how the service in this hotel is.

Not 5-star worthy at all. After having paid the non-refundable costs of three rooms, the hotel cancelled my booking. They decided to close the location until September. I do understand the difficulty of entrepreneurs dealing with COVID, so I was sorry for them to be forced to make such a decision. A few days later they asked me to pick another date and they refused a refund. I had to send a lot of emails and make a lot of phone calls but I was just ignored. The hotel suddenly opened again and I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and accept the reservation of the rooms again. Location and grounds are absolutely 5 stars, but the interior is outdated, not particularly clean, fresh and cosy, and absolutely overpriced. There is no love and soul in the place. Service is something really to be ashamed of. But let me emphasize that working staff is not accountable for that. I have seen hard working people who tried to make the best of the situation. It seems the hotel is in trouble due to corona and bad choices? For lunch the choice was a caprese salad or a hamburger with fries. Such a small choice is absolutely no problem but the hamburger was a prefab deepfrozen supermarket hamburger on a dry bun, no sauce. Really shameful and not worth the money. The next morning we had to wait over an hour before breakfast was served and the quality was not good. My daughters bed was covered in ants and the kind person on the nightwatch arranged a different room immediately. So, it is not the people, but investments need to be made to live up to the minimum standard of a 4 star hotel. I say 4 stars, because Villa Tolomei is far away from being a 5 star hotel. Be warned before booking!
