This trip was a surprise for my wife's birthday and she was blown away! So i was in the good books ;-) The surrounding area measures 4 hectares and it is all beautifully cared for, so before you even reach the hotel your thinking "wow this is nice" !
The Manager Stefano is a really nice guy, as are all the hotel staff, all very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Our room was super cosy with a big soft bed and stunning views overlooking Florence, i really couldn't stop gazing out of the window! The TV and music system is concealed inside the mirror which is smart and its great to be able to watch a movie in bed, the sound is perhaps not as clear as it could be as the external speakers were not hooked up, but this wasn't a problem as we just turned it up louder. The rainforest shower was class...never been so drenched in a shower before!
We had lunch and dinner at the hotel, in the restaurant you can watch the chefs in the kitchen through a large glass window. It was thanksgiving night and we really were served up a treat...and that is one meal our bellies wont be forgetting in a hurry...compliments to the chef.
A hotel shuttle bus runs back & forth to Florence city center from 9.30am - 20.30pm which is very handy and only takes 10-15 minutes.
My wife had a facial in the spa and loved it! The pool area was closed as it was November.
The library is very regal and a nice spot to sit and read, especially in the evening with the candles lit up.
This place was so nice we could have easily just chilled out at the hotel all day, but when in Florence you must explore the city...but knowing that you'll be returning to il Salviatino at the end of the day is a very comforting feeling.
So glad we chose to stay here.
Thank you il Salviatino ;-)
