We stayed 9 nights here...almost perfect. The staff is most gracious and friendly. The only problem was the smell from our toilet, covered up by an odor product that was worse. We were told that the hotel will be completely remodeled starting in November 2013 and that this problem will be corrected. The breakfast buffet is exceptional with anything one wants. Super view over Florence. Very good king size bed. Good restaurant with great club sandwich and cesar salad. Wine list excellent. Pizza may be ordered in. Proseco wine included in the afternoon. We shall return!

Three main plusses to this hotel: superb location overlooking Florence yet within easy walking distance; very friendly, competent and helpful staff, and very nicely appointed / furnished rooms throughout the property. Also a very pleasant pool and good parking. The property is just the right size, small enough to have very personalized service. I will not hesitate to come here again next time in Florence.

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay here in a delightfully appointed room in the stylish annexe, which is only a few steps from the main building. The swimming pool was much appreciated as the temperature was over 30 degrees Centigrade. All the staff were very helpful and welcoming and the site and situation were superb.

I stayed at the Bellavista Suite of Hotel Villa la Veddeta with my wife and daughter in mid August.
The suite was awesome - everything were perfect.
Hotel services were also very comfortable and reliable, all staff were gentle and friendly.

The hotel locates just 15-20 minutes walking distance from famous Ponte Vecchio, 10 minutes drive from S.M.Novella train station by taxi, but the surrounding environment is very quiet and comfortable, you can feel that you are in a very high class resort at a beautiful highland.
We could retreat us from a hustle and bustle of central district of Firenze city, where a lot of tourists crushed everywhere under typical summer holiday season.

Bellavista Suite:

- perfect setting with panorama view of Firenze city from wide windows. We could stay everyday in a famous "post card" view.
- well appointed room facilities : air-conditioning, well equipped two bathrooms, very comfortable bedding even in the upper side of duplex, appropriate lighting set-up etc. etc.
- the suite is always kept clean.
- swimming pool is beautiful and charming. This is perfect place in the late afternoon to relax after spending busy time at the Firenze city.
- breakfast at the terrance under fresh air is also perfect set-up before starting busy day at the Firenze city.

I definitely recommend to stay Bellavista Suite at the Hotel Villa la Vedetta.

We had a perfect romantic wedding at the Villa. No glitches at all- how many can say that on their wedding day? I left it all in the wonderful hands of the event planner. From the moment we arrived every detailed was not only to our specifications (considering that it as all arranged only via email) but the hotel extended extra touches to add to our wedding experience. Alina the party planner was exceptional and professional. I did not have to think about anything the entire wedding day, it was all taken care of. Our grand delux room was a good size, quite with view of the garden and fountain, the bathroom Jacuzzi tub was wonderful. The wedding banquet was superb, I was impressed with how considerate they were with many of the food restrictions and allergies my guests had. The new chef is excellent. The views are exceptional of Florence and the grounds ideal for family to enjoy the day. The pool definitely helped cool off and entertained my guests between the day's events. The free shuttle into and out of the tourist area of Florence is a bonus. I can not thank the staff and hotel enough for my special day.
