We recently enjoyed the most amazing 3 night stay at Il Salviatino, the main reason being we chose to have our wedding reception held at the hotel. From the moment we travelled from Scotland to visit the hotel, we knew we had chosen the perfect location for our wedding.
We met with Events Coordinator Cristiano Brizzi, who was the most genuine, helpful and accommodating person you could meet. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he reassured us it was our special day and he would do everything within his powers to accommodate our requests. He even generously allowed us to stay within the Ojetti Suite, which is without doubt the most amazing room we have ever stayed in. Cristiano organised appointments for us to meet florists during our stay and also allowed us to try our wedding menu, which consisted of the most amazing 7 course banquet.
Whilst our reception was held within the hotel, we were officially married nearby within the Town Hall of Fiesole. The hotel offer the services of a wedding coordinator, who was fantastic! She took care of everything regarding the ceremony, all the legal documentation and was always available by phone/email to help with our endless questions. She was the consummate professional!!!!!
During the wedding day itself, she orchestrated the whole day, directing guests to and from locations, as well as acting as a translator during the ceremony.
During our 3 night wedding stay, we were given a beautiful Deluxe Room with a Dome view, which was perfect! And all the rooms we booked for our family were lovely. The service in the hotel was incredible, each member of staff (service ambassadors) were very polite, friendly and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Running up to our actual wedding, Sara Orselli took charge of everything to make our day perfect, she met with us on numerous occasions to discuss the finer details of the day, organised all the transport for the wedding and was available at all times to help with any last minute issues. Sara was extremely genuine, kind and considerate and again a consummate professional.
During our reception we firstly enjoyed Aperitifs on the terrace and gardens of Il Salviatino, which was then followed by the most amazing 7 course dinner, overlooking Florence on the terrace of the hotel. The food and wine were both out of this world and the experience was made even more special by dining outside, by candle light on the terrace.
There is so much more we could say in praise of Il Salviatino, but we would be here forever!
This is truly the most amazing hotel and we are already planning our return next year.
Thank you everyone at Il Salviatino.
