We arrived at this beautiful resort located on the hills of Florence, just 12 minutes via taxi from the city center, and we were welcomed by an elegant and quintessentially Tuscan atmosphere. The resort is set in a Renaissance Toscan villa with large rooms, high ceilings, and beautiful grounds. Fireplaces were lit, and Christmas lights and trees were displayed all over the resort. We were welcomed by very professional and friendly staff. The rooms were huge, and the views were breathtaking. We had a quick bite to eat (so we thought) in the beautiful restaurant, and we tasted their specialties; the resort has an olive garden and a vineyard, so they produce their own olives, olive oil, and red wine. We tasted delicious local prosciutto and salame, along with tasty cheeses and local delicatessen. We then went back to Florence in the evening and returned for the night. In the morning, we woke up, and the views from the windows were just incredible. Silence, piece, and beauty. Breakfast was great. The girls working in the breakfast room were just lovely and professional. The resort has a gym, a spa, and a swimming pool with panoramic views over Florence, open to those traveling in the summer. There is also a beautiful walk which would take you down hills into Florence. I highly recommend this resort for every season, wether you dream of Tuscan hills or want want to enjoy Florence, this is it! Thank you for the amazing stay!

My 2 friends and I were on a cross country Italy roadtrip. We came across Villa Tolomei in search of apartment rentals in Florence. Much to our surprise, the estate has apartments available on property (aside from regular hotel rooms) which we booked. The apartments are about a 3 minute walk to the main house, but worth the comfort and privacy. We were taken care of tremendously by Christian at the front desk during our check in and stay. The property grounds were magnificent with the pool facing the valley, and perfect for a relaxing evening sunset. The restaurant menu was a bit limited for lunch and dinner, but breakfast was a great array of options to choose from (with an in house coffee barista to make specialty caffeinated drinks). The property is a bit retreated from the city center, and can make a late night out difficult, but it is still accessible with taxis and BIRD scooters (if you’re up for that type of ride).

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Villa Tolomei at the end of September, beginning of October and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We was blessed with exceptional weather for this time of year with temperatures breaking 30 degrees everyday and not a cloud in the sky. Upon arrival we was given our key to room 37 which is a large room in a building just next to the main reception, it was a large bedroom with a huge separate bathroom, which in all honesty, whilst clean, tidy, functional and with free toiletries, the space could have been better utilised, no complaints with either the bathroom or the bedroom though. As the hotel is on a hilltop outside of the resort, it is a 15-20 Euro taxi ride into Florence unless you want to walk up and down the steep road which takes about 30-40 mins depending on your own personal circumstance but given this, we had the most stunning view of Florence from the back of our room, the swimming pool and the restaurant. The swimming pool is perfect, don't listen to the moans about the odd tile needing replacing etc, it is a great size, the sunbeds are great and you receive free use of towels. On top of this, Daniel, pool man by the summer, bellboy in the winter, will look after your every needs, with beer (8 euros a bottle) and wine (free it seems around the pool) a plenty. As I said, we was lucky with the weather and also, the pool heating had been turned on the previous week as well. Breakfast in the hotel was very good, lots of choice, be that fruit juices, fruit, cold meats and cheeses, pastries, and hot food including bacon and eggs, plus I enjoyed a couple of lattes each morning which was a bonus, honestly I am not doing it justice. We ate in Florence for the first three nights of our stay, which I had booked in advance having done my TripAdvisor research and we was not disappointed with any of our meals. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for the dinner in the restaurant at the hotel on our last night. We chose to eat in the restaurant as it was my wife's Birthday and our 30th Wedding Anniversary and without going into detail, the meal was the worse meal we had out of our four evening meals and the most expensive by far, almost double the other restaurants, and given there are hundreds of restaurants in Florence, I would suggest you do your homework before choosing where to eat. Florence is absolutely beautiful with so much to see and so much to do and everybody in Florence is very helpful and very pleasant, it was even a pleasure to shop in the markets and I am not a shopper at the best of times. My only real moan is that whilst the restaurant in the hotel recognised my wife's birthday by putting a candle in her desert, that was it, very underwhelming and quiet sad really, such a shame. That aside, I would definitely recommend Villa Tolomei and we will definitely stay there again in the future as we will definitely be coming back to Florence.

Thanks to the amazing staff at Villa Tolomei, our wedding day was absolutely perfect. We couldn't have done it without them. We didn't have a wedding planner since it wasn't in our budget, so luckily the villa has an events team who helped us with the coordination of everything. Special thanks to both Rosi and Anastasia for their help. The grounds are stunning. We had 80 people attend all from the USA and they were amazed of how beautiful everything was. Even if we didn't have florals, honestly it would have still been beautiful. The location is perfect because it's right up the hill in Florence. Majority of our guests stayed in the city center and we hired vans to bring everyone home afterwards. Some of our guests, and ourselves, stayed at the hotel that night. Highly recommend!

We spent 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. We arrived at 11.30am and were quickly checked into our room, which was available immediately. Our room was spacious with a large bed and beautiful bathroom. There was a terrace with 2 comfortable chairs and a table. (Room 25). The hotel is set in the countryside just outside of the city which suited us perfectly. After a busy day exploring it was lovely to return to the hotel and enjoy the pool with its fabulous views. Daniel at the pool was so attentive arranging sun beds and serving food and drinks. Nothing was too much. We ate dinner at the hotel on the first night and I can honestly say it was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. The breakfast was a buffet which was always well stocked, there were other options available to order too. Staff were friendly and always happy to help. I’d read some reviews stating the hotel was hard to find, we had no problems, it was well sign posted and easy to find using GPS. We walked a couple of times into Florence, however taxi’s were readily available and cost around €15-€20. I would highly Villa Tolomei and will definitely be returning.

We stayed 4 nights at the end of June. The first 2 were amazing. This is a beautiful boutique hotel with spectacular views of Florence. 22 rooms only. Staff are very friendly, especially Daniel at the pool and the ladies at breakfast. Great food, lovely room. Do the mayhem of Florence in the morning and then retreat to the pool in the afternoon, before a pre-dinner drink on the terrace. Then head out to eat or dine in the beautiful restaurant. Idyllic! BUT THEN.. A group of entitled, arrogant people (probably 30-35 year old range) on a wedding trip turn up and swamp the place, literally. Pool party day 1. Shouting, screaming, bombing in the pool. Wedding guests not staying at the hotel using it. Team lead was the sister of the groom (A****a), who announced to anyone who would listen that she was - the sister of the groom. Luckily they went into town for dinner. Then 2am the following morning woken by - you guessed it - shouting and screaming. Had to call down to reception. Day 2 - the wedding itself @ 17.30hrs. Went well - a lot of grown ups turned up, so Ar***a's team was quite well behaved. We went into town for dinner anyhow. Got back, relatively quiet. Guests clearly having a good time, no problem with that of course - all good. 2.30 am the next morning woken by - you guessed it - shouting and screaming non-stop. The only way I can describe it is that it was like a bunch of pre-pubescent teenagers riding the tallest roller coaster you can imagine - on a non-stop loop. No issue with people having a nice time, but this was just that - shouting and screaming, seemingly for no reason. So from a beautiful 5 star retreat to a 3 star Ibiza beach hotel with one flick of the switch..the bit they don't tell you in the advert. The Golden rule here is that if you're organising this kind of get-together and want to behave like this then book out a venue fully. Then you can behave like pre-pubescent teenagers if you want. On the guest side, the moral of the story is check whether there are any weddings/ events planned at the hotel while you're there. I can only guess what the other 4 or so couples were thinking. The Villa Tolomei is a beautiful place, but ultimately its size is its undoing, when hosting events. There was another event on the second night. That meant the terrace was unavailable for guests. Then there was an industry event the third night - pool and terrace unavailable for guests. Then the wedding night itself - restaurant, pool, terrace - basically all the common areas unavailable for guests. The rating would have been 5 stars without these events. But realistically, the hotel will have these events and it just isn't big enough to cope, whilst trying to offer the normal guest what is advertised - a 5 star retreat in the tranquil hills of Tuscany. My recommendation to the hotel would be to build separate facilities for these events. That way the ethos of the Tuscan hills retreat is maintained, whilst keeping the valuable revenue the events generate.

It was a pleasure to stay at the Villa Tolomei Hotel & Resort. We stayed two nights. Everything was perfect. The reception was lovely, the room was big, clean and the beds like heaven. We had dinner both nights and it was very nice, service and food. Breakfast was great, everything you could wish for, service excellent. We sat by the pool and the service there was the best, I can’t remember his name but he was from Philippine, so professional. All in all, we had a great weekend.

My family and I did not have a good experience at this hotel. Where to begin… There is no childrens menu and the pool bar has a very limited menu. We ordered 1 pasta which took over 45 mins to arrive. Not great if you have hungry kids. They then added a cover charge for 3 people for 1 pasta. Pool bar opened at 11:30 each day (late some days) but we were told the kitchen doesn’t open until 1 for food orders. Why? Again not great for kids if they are hungry. Breakfast was meant to start at 8am but was late to open every day. It was also very basic and the eggs were almost inedible some days. It was clear that this hotel was massively understaffed. Staff couldn’t handle a full hotel and some were very rude. I spoke to the manager about our problems who didn’t seem to be sorry or care. I sent an email with our complaints on our final day and didn’t even get a response. Unfortunately I would not stay at this hotel again. It is certainly not 5 star as it claims to be and I think most would expect a higher level of service for the price.
