Demidoff Country Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Pratolino
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This is a comfortable but very remote hotel, if you are visiting Florence. The best way to get into Florence is using the shuttle provided by the hotel, that leaves at 9 AM and comes back at 5 PM. This gives you a very long day in Florence that could be exhausting, but worth it. The hotel is comfortable with a pool and quiet bedrooms. The restaurant serves good food, and the staff are friendly (although we came across an extremely rude waiter).

Room Tip: from the rooms overlooking the valley you can see the cupola of the Dome in Florence

First of all it is very, very, far away from the city and any transportation. The only way we could get to the hotel was by taxi (35-40 euros one way). They have a shuttle bus that leaves at 9 or 10 in the morning and comes back at 17 or 18 in the evening. The problem is that if you come at 18 at the hotel that is in the mioddle of nowhere you have noting to do .... they should change this aspect. The pictures they have online have nothing to do with the reality. It is an old, humid and dusty hotel. The furniture is old. The bathroom was nice and clean. The cleaning was ok, not great, but ok. The pool looks bad, old, so I did not go for a swim even if the pool was one of the reason I choose this hotel.The staff was friendly and welcomming. The breakfast was good only the first day, after that it was very poor whith no vegetables and fruits and suspect looking ham. I do not recomand it.

Room Tip: Do not trust the pictures on the website, they have nothing to do with the reality

When they say "country resort" they do mean way out in the country....... to far to go anywhere if you are stuck there. Nice hotel for a wedding or a conference. Pool smell pervades everywhere. Breakfast was superb. Nothing else of great note.

This hotel was very disappointing. The hotel room I stayed in, was very old and dingy looking. The bathroom was in poor conditions as well. I had a "single" room. It was spacious enough, but it was not something I would have chosen for myself. My friends statyed on a different floor, and their room wasn't bad at all. The quality of the double rooms is better than the quality of the single rooms. The food that was served, was edible at the very best. It's not a far drive from the main attractions of downtown Florence, but I would reccomend staying a nicer hotel.

Room Tip: Get a double room, even if you're traveling as a single.

Dear Sir,
Many thanks for sending your comments after your stay in our Hotel.
We are pleased to read that you enjoyed our food and our position in the country-side.
Actually, we are only 7,5 miles far from Florence city center. You can enjoy Florence staying away from the chaos of the city
We are sorry about the room where you stayed: classic rooms will be renovated during winter (we have already started) . we have almost completed the restoration of the rooms, and we are very sorry you had some discomfort.
we hope to meet you again at the Demidoff Hotel!

I stayed at this Hotel in September 2012 as part of a Cosmos vacation. Let me tell you it is a very peaceful and beautiful place. The room we had was very nice and had a huge balcony overlooking the beautiful Florence countryside. The rooms are very up to date with very modern conveniences. The staff at the reception were very friendly save and except for one issue with one of our members of our cosmos group who was charged for a beer or something from the mini bar which she claimed she did not consume as she did not drink alcohol.

We had dinner at the restaurants the two nights and the food was superb! There is just something about Tuscan food that is so sumptuous!

I will recommend this hotel for a stay if you are in Tuscany. The only disadvantage in staying here is that it is way outside of the city of Florence and you will have to pay a 40 euro cab fare to get to the city and 40 euro back. But if you want a very romantic, peaceful experience, stay here.

Peaceful setting, lovely views of Florence and surrounding countryside. We were part of the Saga tour "Italian classics". Our room needed redecorating but was clean and comfortable with all facilities except kettle (but we took our own) and a huge balcony. The mozzies were a bit of a nuisance but apparently they are common in this area. Thoroughly enjoyed the indoor pool. Breakfasts were excellent, comprehensive buffet style, except for the bacon which was ultra thin,oily, fatty and tasteless. The evening meal was just acceptable if you made the right choice - we learned to avoid the fish which was invariably wet, jellified and tasteless regardless of the variety. Overall we enjoyed our stay here.
