I wrote a review of FH55 late last year but I can't see it on here so I am writing another one... My fiancé, 3 month old baby and I travelled to Fiesole to get married in front of a small group of friends and family last September. Before this we employed the services of Chocoweddings to help coordinate everything. They were also wonderful. But the Hotel Villa Fiesole is really something special. There are no words to describe exactly how great it is and how great the staff are. But I’ll try my best... All the reviews will tell you about the views of Florence which are spectacular but what made this a perfect trip for us was the staff. They made our wedding and our trip to Fiesole perfect. If you’ve heard about the friendliness and charm of Italian people then you will see it here. Travelling with a 3 month old baby is not easy but we felt at home during our stay. The reception staff and manager always asking if we need anything. He even asked if he can go to the town to get us some things. On the day of our wedding we had the reception staff ironing tablecloths and moving everything around so we had a luxurious setting high up in the hills of Tuscany overlooking Florence. It would really take your breath away. And the restaurant staff checking everyone is ok for drinks and food before the ceremony. The real star of the show here was Massi, the restaurant manager. He’s one in a million, all things to all men: brilliant with food, great with our little son Simon and great at overseeing our wedding. He was always right there when we needed him and always the friendly face we saw each evening for dinner. He is a real asset to the hotel. I also must mention the room and everything else was perfect but we will go back to see the staff and especially Massi again and for a dip in the pool. If you want to stay in luxury and in beautiful surroundings in Tuscany then there’s no other choice only the FH 55 Villa Hotel Fiesole. We’ll be back as soon as flights resume to Italy. I want the world to know that this hotel deserves your custom. For a holiday, a short trip, or a wedding. It’s just perfect. Feel free to pm me for more details. I will add photos ASAP. …
We came across this hotel while researching for a trip thru Tuscany. Did not make a reservation as we weren’t sure what day we would arrive. Showed up, were warmly greeted and given a room. Had an outstanding dinner! This is a charming hotel with incredible views of Florence and surrounding towns. Would highly recommend. Only downside was noise from other guests who probably were not aware of our presence.
This was a lovely hotel with great ammenities 20 minutes bus ride outside Florence. the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms spacious and clean. We luckily got the room with the balcony, and even though the road ran by the side of the hotel it was peaceful relaxing and calm to sit out in the evening. Would highly recommend this hotel.
Generally it is a very nice place but it is located near a very noisy road to Fiesole. So be careful which room you'll be given. I've got I think the worst one, just a few metres from the road. Also the cleaning service grabs everything what may look like a trash. I lost my earplugs and plastic spoon. In the room there are no glasses although the kettle is provided (only some plastic cups are given).
Lovely hotel for myself, husband and friends, very clean and convenient. Love the quaintness of it all. I would highly recommend this hotel to a friend. Wish we had gone next door to the monastery for a drink as recommended but we ran out to time.
