Demidoff Country Resort

Reviewed July 11, 2012

We stayed here as part of Cosmos tour. It is way out in nowhere land. Once you get there, you are confined to the hotel. It does have a very nice fitness center and also free WIFI, you must like them on Facebook to get it. It also has a swimming pool, you can get towels in the front desk. Their breakfast is wonderful, very good selection of bread, eggs, sausage, bacon etc. Their dinner was part of our tour package, it was ok, very tasty. The staff is very nice and polite. The rooms very clean, we had a beautiful view of the mountain side. We had a balcony with chairs to sit out side. Really enjoyed it.

A good hotel although rather isolated in the hills above Florence. Decent sized indoor swimming pool and sauna. Rooms have good big balconies and views over the hills (except some single rooms). Food was adequate but not exceptional - we were part of a SAGA tour with restricted menus so perhaps not the same standard as individual guests.

I stayed here as part of a Saga tour of Italy for 4 nights. In terms of location it couldn't be better and if you have a room at the front you wil have a huge balcony with fabulous views over the Tuscan hills (my sister saw deers and a wild boar one morning!). It can be little remote if you are without transport but the hotel does frun a daily shuttle bus into Florence. The lobby and bar area were nicely decorated and there were pleasant areas to sit outside. The pool looked lovely and was open late although I didn't use it on this visit. The main reason why this hotel is a 3 and not 4 star is the service and food. Maybe it was because we were part of a large group but the food was often tepid and ordering a bottle of wine often meant chasing after the waitress to get her attention. It was the same in the bar when you could be standing waiting for a long time before a member of staff appeared. A shame, as in terms of position this hotel was fab.

Dear Mrs. Joyen,
Many thanks for sending your comments after your stay in our Hotel.
We are pleased to read that you and your sister enjoyed a lot the view, the true nature and the sight of wild animals. As you saw, the hotel has been restored and next time we invite you to use our indoor pool!
About food: in Italy the food is not always served hot. Temperature depends on the type of dish and on the food used. In fact certain types of food get ruined at high temperatures. We do our best in order to serve food as you like, even if this is not in our culture. our food is cooked at the time and for this reason, in some cases, the waiting times are longer. We hope to meet you again, warmest regards
The Staff of Demidoff Country Resort

In the middle of the country side close to Firenze with an amazing view of the Tuscan hills. Great breakfast with a lot of variety and friendly service. I booked with Oh-Florence and had great night for a fair price (68 euro is a great price for a four star resort).
WIFI is not free (only minus) The hotel featured free three hours of internet after a Like It on Facebook. But to do so I would have to connect to internet first. So after all I did not use it since I was only staying for one night and had no time to use the paid internet plus free internet.

Room Tip: A room with full view of the Tuscan Country Side

I and my husband stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The staff is friendly. The hotel is spacious. It's situated in a beautiful countryside. The swimming pool is really relaxing with nice beds along the pool. The first evening there were even classical music from the loudspeakers. I didn't have time enough to try the fitness studio, but there are a possibility.
The food in the restaurant was generally good. We selected from the Menu of the day, but do not try the poached egg! The prices were reasonable. Guests got 20% discount.
The famous garden in Pratolino was not open when we were there. But we had a walk to a convent about 3km away.There are a free shuttle bus that takes about 30min to Florence.

i had stayed here last may and decided to come back.this time we had a superior room.first of all i noticed the additional improvements to the whole place since last time.the facade has been repainted,the bathroom and room were perfect.we had a large terrace with a fabulous view.i probably wouldn't want a standard room but have no complaints about the superior one.the front desk staff is very helpful and courteous and a porter helped us with our luggage.breakfast was good and varied but when it was crowded the service wasn't as smooth as it could be.that's a minor detail.dinner was delicious,too.the dining room was full of light and had a nice view,too.the grounds are well-kept,also.the location is suberb.florence is nearby but we went to the nearby borghi which are beautiful-borgo san lorenzo,vicchio,vaglia,palazzuolo sul senio,giotto's birthplace.there is a footpath along the sieve river which is delightful.the only problem with demidoff is you want to come back often.
