“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Just back from Villa Fiesole and could not be happier with our stay! We arrived during a heavy rainstorm and were greeted at the taxi by the porter who handed me his umbrella and grabbed our bags. Check-in was a breeze, always welcomed after a long day of travel. Our room was quite large, the bed was extremely comfortable and the bath was more than adequate. The view from the room (211) was spectacular and it was a real treat to throw open the window and get the morning breeze as we looked over Florence. Because of the rain we stayed in that first night and ate at the hotel and it was fantastic! The service couldn't have been better and the food was good enough to bring us back again before we checked out. The breakfast every morning is quite good, great service there keeping everything fresh and full and a nice selection. This is such a perfect spot because it gets you away from the large tourist crowds in Florence and puts you so close to Fiesole which is the perfect little town to wander about and find some fantastic meals. We enjoyed our Florence trip and Villa Fiesole made it even better because it's so close yet seems so far removed from the crowds you find in Florence. Just take bus 7 and in no time you're right in the thick of things in Florence.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "deluxe" room, plenty of space and I believe they all have the great view...

First and foremost probably some of the most stunning views of Florence we could have hoped for..no complaints there.

On arrival we were in one of the ground floor rooms which had a distinctly sewage-like smell. The hotel had placed us in one of the downstairs rooms for ease of access as we had our daughter with us. The reception had us moved to another room within the hour. The rooms themselves were spacious and nicely furnished and included the essential air-con for the blistering Italian summer weather (up to 40 degrees C!).

The pool was a disappointment. The photos on the website were taken cleverly enough to disguise the fact that it is in actual fact probably no bigger than 10 by 10 meters and that is probably a touch generous. Also, although one could order food/drinks to the pool it had to come from the restaurant which meant that service was pretty slow.

The food was fantastic throughout and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We were also given some very good recommendations to eat out for lunch and dinner by the hotel reception.

All in all, not necessarily the most child friendly hotel with regards to layout, but they more than made up for this by being as helpful and accommodating as possible.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking pool area are more spacious than in the main building and have their own small ver...

Villa Fiesole is a well maintained, quiet hotel in charming Fiesole, minutes from downtown Florence. The rooms are clean and quiet, and the restaurant offers a wide variety of breakfast choices as well as excellent dinners. We have recommended this hotel to friends who have stayed there and they have been pleased as well. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Florence.

My girlfriend and i had a lovely trip here at the end of a frantic search for a room. The view of Florence from the terrace bar/restaurant is amazing and worth the stay alone. It is a little expensive, but the rooms are neat, tidy and modern. The service at the front desk was second to none, and the restaurant was quite good, if again, a little on the expensive side. All in all a pleasant stay.

With Florence being one of my favourite cites I wanted a hotel that would be close to the centre but with all the charm and advantages of somewhere peacefull and charming. The location of this hotel is hard to beat with easy access into Florence via the No'7 bus which stops out side the hotel and provides the passenger with fabulous views to enjoy on the journey (15 min approx)

What a find.... The Hotel Villa Fiesole ( which i found on the internet) covered all my requirements and more with it's great staff, fabulous location, excellent food and views to die for... plus it also has a pool ( a welcome bouns to this hotel when in 41 degrees! in August) The view's of Florence from this hotel are breath taking - Brunellsschi's Dome is clear to see from every angle, and sipping a glass of presecco whilst taking in the views from the balcony before enjoying the excellent food on offer is a must.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they go out of their way to please and accommodate. I stayed here for 10 days with my family and can not praise this hotel enough for the overall excellent service we received. Thank you Hotel Villa Fiesole and our best wishes for your continued sucess.

Unbelievably we found this hotel advertised in one of the service stations on the way to Rome. It had gone 7pm and we had decided to sleep in Florence as we were too early for our apartment in Rome.

We had no idea what we were getting but arriving in the dark up the steep twisty lanes was magical (I wasn't driving!). We had an amazing and massive room with a beautiful painted ceiling huge windows and tasteful decor.The bath and shower was wonderful. We had wine on the terrace and then had a midnight swim in the outdoor pool. So nice and it was refreshing to be in a relaxed hotel were they trusted their guests (pool is open 24 hours)

Breakfast was lovely on the terrace and they did us a great last minute rate. I don't know if it's handy to get into the city but the view over it was amazing. There were quite a few Bits here but they all seemed well heeled and smart. I'd return and recommend.

Room Tip: 111! Although there is some road noise

Its nice to hear you were surprised by the beauty of the place , we hope all our guests can relax as long as they can. We obviously trust all our guests but having lots of children I have to highlight we have a camera pointed to the pool for guest security reasons .

Thank you for the stay and for the beautiful words.
