Villa Carlotta Hotel
Ranked #238 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The hotel is 'nice'.. Nothing horrible but nothing spectacular. I feel quite middle of the road about this hotel. It was functional although a little out of the centre of the main area of Florence city, this may be a bonus as it was very quiet and peaceful at night. Apparently the main area can be very noisy at night. Breakfast was substantial with the usual continental style choice. Service was good with a smile & a bonjourno greeting. Reception was friendly & helpful. Did not try the restaurant but it did not seem to be used by anyone whilst we stayed here. The room was clean & functional. Bathroom was good, Shower brilliant. (room 115) Although the door needs fixing on the bathroom, the wardrobe and the main door into the room. The hotel had a little bit of a tired feeling about it and seemed to need a little bit of sprucing up, especially outside in the garden area and the canopy outside gave the hotel a look of shabbiness. This hotel, in my opinion is not a 4star hotel. It was not an awful place to stay at all,It was OK..I would not discourage anyone to stay here but at the same time i would not recommend, but I would not particularly choose to return. Saying all that, we had a lovely break in Florence. A beautiful city surrounded by beautiful scenery.

Dear Customer,
we are sorry you not enjoyed staying at Villa Carlotta, but we are happy you tell us that you appreciated the cleanliness, the friendliness of staff, the room and bathroom.
The hotel is just outside the old town and you can reach it walking through the Boboli Gardens in 15 Minutes.
The terrace is used lot in the evening from our customers for a drink or just for relaxing, but the bad weather of recent weeks (unfortunately has always rained) certainly did not invite to be outdoors, to inform you however, in November we will made works on the terrace of to build a beautiful outdoor pool with many whirlpools to enjoy the sunny days.

Maybe you felt bad because you expected a modern style in the Hotel, We are very appreciated for the quiet of the surrounding area, for free parking, for the cleaning and the service, but mostly because so many people love to stay in a not Standard Hotel.
We hope to have you again as our most welcome guest
Best Regards
Antonio

It's a lovely building in a nice area - not in the city center, but the location is beautiful, amidst other villas. We were four people staying in two rooms. The one on the top floor was worse: the carpet in the hallway is worn, the room looks tired and the bathroom radiator was dusty for all three days of our stay. The bar, seating area and breakfast room all are worn beyond the state of charm, the breakfast buffet was OK for the price. I think this hotel would greatly benefit from a remodel, since the substance is very good. The staff is helpful and friendly.

My husband and I stayed here while on our honeymoon touring Italy. The hotel was comfortable and clean and the staff were very accommodating. We really liked the fact the hotel was outside of the city and was very quiet at night. After staying in the city of Rome, we welcomed the opportunity to hear the birds in the morning and not traffic. The breakfast in the morning was good and plentiful. Although it was a bit of a walk to the city center, we enjoyed it and found some nice shops and cafes on the way. Overall, it was a pleasurable experience staying at the Villa Carlotta and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay outside of the city.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem to be pretty quiet. Ours was towards the back of the hotel on the first floor...

The hotel is great. Our room was big, clean,confortable bed, the bathroon was big, good shower and the ground was heated ( this was great in the morning ). The only thing that I didn't enjoy very much is that the room temperature was too warm and we didn't have the chance to turn on the air conditioning because only the heating system was working, so we feel a little bit warm during the night. The breakfast is ok, not a big thing, but I guess the usual for Italians. The location was great for us cause we had a car and couldn't get into the historical center( zona a traffico limitado ), but we had to walk aroud 3 Km to reach the center and most part of atractions. Sometimes after a day of visiting and walking this is a lot, but you can get a taxi back to the hotel ( around 10 euros ). Definitively I would stay in this hotel again.

We stayed at the Villa Carlotta nearly two weeks in March 2013. In our opinion, the hotel has a great location: a quiet place, everything is verdured - and within walking distance of the historic center. It is difficult to imagine that just a 10 minute walk distance from the Pitti Palace you can live much as if it is a country: the singing birds, fresh air, no endless crowds.
The hotel is very cozy, large rooms with comfortable bed.

But the best thing about this hotel is his staff. The hotel has a very friendly atmosphere, this is not "host – guest” relations, but between hospitable hostess and welcome guests. You are always welcome in this home, and each and all shall be only too pleased to help you – from the courteous, helpful, nice people at the front desk to the diligent maids. We stayed in many hotels in many tourist centers, but we have never seen such well-organized and kindly team.

We dined at the hotel restaurant with his homelike atmosphere almost every evening. You are welcome by the waiter and barman segnor Mohammedan, the very vigorous, outgoing gentleman who is always ready to help you. You can speak to him on serious subjects or have a good laugh.

The another waiter segnor Armando is very attentive and courteous man. Once he asked me “what type of coffee you want, signora Olga?” I was very surprised, because we met four days before, but he remembered my name. And then he brought me my cappuccino, and my name was written by chocolate on the surface of the coffee. I was genuinely shocked and happy.

Chef signor Mario is the real soul of the restaurant; he is good-hearted, very considerate and has cousinly affection for the guests of his restaurant. By the way, his tiramisu is the best in Florence. In our last evening segnori Mario and Mohammedan themselves booked a table for us and we had our farewell dinner very kindly. It was present to our mind. Where can you find something like that?

We got a lot of kindness of heart in the hotel and it was one of the most pleasant experiences of Florence. Thank you to all the staff. Thank you, Hotel Villa Carlotta

The location is the best thing about the hotel. It is located in a very nice environment. The center is easily accessible on foot. The rooms are relatively small, the bathroom could be better equipped. Breakfast is from simple to medium quality, the tea and coffee supply was not very convincing. The interior needs a refresh or replacement. The staff is helpful and friendly.
