Had a wonderfull dinner with my boyfriend. The head Waiter Pietro was wonderful, spoke great English and very professional. In my opinion the Hotel staff does not give the impression of a 5 star hotel..the restaurant staff are very professional.

We stayed in September whilst it was still hot and sunny. We'd chosen this hotel as it has a large outside space with swimming pool whilst still being close to the centre of Florence (About 15 minutes by taxi). The hotel was very comfortable, beautiful art throughout the hotel with relaxing outside terraces to enjoy the views over countryside or the sunsets over the city at night. The hotel was quiet (As was Florence generally) so we had no problem with social distancing and felt very safe everywhere. The hotel was very clean, the excellent breakfast (in a lovely large room with beautiful views across the countryside) was served to us at our table by the efficient and friendly staff. We went into Florence in the afternoons and stayed to eat so we can't comment on the restaurant at the hotel. Some reviews talk about walking into city - the road is not all pavement and it is very steep down to the city so we never tried! Only small negative was the lack of spare plug sockets in the bedroom to charge phone etc. (Ideally ones near to bed). Another problem that the hotel can do nothing about is the variable charges the Italian taxi drivers made to and from the hotel to the city centre but this is something we have experienced as well in Italy e.g. Rome. Just be aware of what you should be charged as a reasonable cost. Overall a lovely stay for our family in a beautiful hotel in beautiful countryside with view of the city - a perfect mini break for all of us.

5 night stay in this lovely hotel with beautiful views looking down over Florence. Spectacular sunsets!! Fortunate to have fabulous warm weather and made good use of the pool each morning before heading in to the city centre. Rooms well appointed and styled in keeping with the building. Lots of great art around hotel. Breakfast service excellent and food plentiful. Special thanks to Jana whose sunny disposition and kindness are a great asset to the hotel. All staff were pleasant and quietly efficient. Serena too was incredibly helpful, professional and knowledgeable on reception. Small negative (nothing to do with hotel) was the massively fluctuating cost of taxis to and from Florence centre- unfortunately the steep hill in and out makes walking an unattractive prospect. Don't let this put you off, worth it for the views!!

A truly wonderful experience. Exquisite and lasting memories of the day my daughter got married to her Prince Charming in Italy. We travelled from the UK to Hotel Tolomei just outside Florence and stayed for 5 nights. The planning and event organisation was of the highest order. The light touch to make sure all happened as required on the day was exquisite. This is a team that knows what they are doing and how to fulfil your every wish and even those that you hadn't even thought of. We couldn't fault any of the staff. The quality of service is of the highest order and their facilities and food just top! Their pool looks out from the hills over the ancient city. Villa Tolomei Hotel & Resort is a short taxi trip (Euro15/20) from the centre of Florence a magical and welcoming city in Tuscanny. So much to see, do, drink and eat. Its a must do.

• Location : conveniently situated on a hill (20 min from the airport / 10 min from the Ponte Vecchio), you can enjoy a beautiful view on the countryside, whether you lay at the swimming-pool or enjoy dinner at the restaurant • Room : a wonderful junior suite (room #12) with an Imperator Size bed (was actually bigger than a King Size! 😉), a giant bathroom and a nice view on the hotel gardens • Facilities: nice fitness center and great swimming-pool, well maintained, excellent service • Reception/staff: warm welcome, always ready to give us every info needed, polite • Catering: from breakfast till dinner, including lunch, everything was perfect. Well, almost… In a 5-star resort like this, you could expect the orange juice to be freshly squeezed but we are maybe a bit too picky! Overall a very good experience at the Villa Tolomei and even it was quite pricy, we are keen to return!
