“A truly wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

What a gem! We stayed for 2 nights but would have happily stayed longer. This has to be one of the prettiest hotels I've stayed in. The standard rooms aren't huge but very nicely furnished with a big comfortable bed. The location for the city centre was ideal if you want a retreat from the bustle of the tourists.. The free shuttle bus operates regularly during the day. The staff throughout the hotel are kind, friendly and genuinely helpful. The standard throughout the hotel was excellent. Breakfast was adequate. The pool is situated by the canal and has the water wheel situated in it. The hotel offers free bike hire, the bikes are basic but well worth taking out along the canal. We used then to ride up to Ponte Vecchio and then came back past the hotel on the opposite side of the canal as far as we could go, probably a 15km trip but with some stunning views. I would highly recommend this hotel and would use again myself.

Currently on honeymoon and spent 3 nights here and I'm now in Poetofino for final 3 days and regret not spending them at Mulino Di Firenze :-(
We had a stressful drive from tuscany and the lovely receptionist immediately relaxed us and we were helped to our room efficiently and by a happy man (this means a lot after driving)
The view from the room was perfect and shortly after starting to unpack there was a knock on the door and we were brought a complimentary bottle of prosecco on ice to celebrate our honeymoon! Hooray!
The hotel itself is a lovely building. The pool was lovely and really different with a big mill wheel turning around. The views were beautiful.
Breakfast was a feast with great service, friendly, efficient
Shuttle bus was great but could have done with more afternoon pick ups as we wanted to return early one day but there was no pick up until 5.30
Wish I was there now and not in portofino xxxx
Oh and we had a T bone steak at the hotel restaurant and the wine and meal was delicious. Having worked in management positions in hotels and restaurants I was thoroughly impressed!

This is a gem and, if I'm not mistaken, somewhat new (or at least refurbished) as part of the "Romantik" hotels chain. It's certainly "romantic." Setting is lovely, with water mill, pool and a nearby dam over the Arno River supplying plenty of atmosphere. Rooms are excellent, and food at restaurant was super. Wines were very good but could have used a better selection of vino by the glass. The decor is interesting and stimulating.
I would recommend this for anyone looking to be close enough to shuttle to central Florence but perhaps more interested in relaxation than whirlwind sightseeing on a daily basis.

One comment on the pool, since it provoked a spirited debate on other posts: I do understand one poster's concerns, but I think they are rather overstated. There is a lot of concrete around, including a fountain in the middle of the pool, so if you are doing laps (as I do), you have to watch yourself and your head. Otherwise, if you're just into wading, splash-splash, and swimming a dozen yards or so at a time, it is fine. I would agree it is not really geared toward children or others (young or old) who do not have a mature, responsible regard for safety and risk. In other words, it's not a venue for roughhousing or devil-may-care swimmers, but instead a strikingly attractive pool for those who accept its limitations.

This hotel was absolutely beautiful and so accomodating. It is a wonderful restored water mill on the banks of the river. Ample opportunity for romance and trips into Florence via hotel shuttle.

The rooms were clean and beautiful as well as the grounds. The staff was friendly and very helpful, making copies of maps for us and explaining how to get around. The breakfast buffet was wonderful as well.

I would definitely return!

Ideal location to relax and chill out after a hard day's sight seeing, the hotel is a lovingly restored old water mill on the banks f the Arno, around 15mins (courtesy) bus or taxi ride from the centre of Florence. The swimming pool is a quirky shape, made from where the water used to flow through past the mill wheel, a version of which still rotates (noisily at times) during the day (it's switched off overnight). The restaurant has and outside space on a balcony overlooking the river, and like most parts of the hotel is an enjoyable place to relax over the excellent food and good selection of wines.

Room Tip: There's 37 rooms in total (I think), we had numbers 1 and 2, which are on the ground floor aroun...

A quiet and romantic hotel not far from Firenze and the city is easily accessible with the hotel shuttle. You can leave your car safely in the nice garage.
The complete hotel is very clean.
I loved the simming pool after a hot day in the city.
Restaurant (breakfast and dinner) is brilliant especially when the weather is nice then you can eat outside next to the Arno river.
The staff is world class. They really provide warmth and coziness and deliver a professional and pleasant service. Thanks Aldo!
Hotel Mulino, thanks again for the wonderful 3 days.
See you next year :-)

Room Tip: kamers op de hogere verdiepingen hebben een mooier uitzicht op het zwembad of de Arno.

This is an eccentrically different hotel that is a great place to stay. We used it as a base to explore parts of Florence and found it an absolutely delightful home base. Great accommodation with friendly and gracious staff, good service and good eating available. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace and a couple of dinners too. It was our first stop on this visit to Italy and we simply couldn't have wished for a more comfortable place.
