“Nice hotel”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We here stayed 2 nights. A very good location, easy to park the car, friendly staff. Room was good and clean. W can also recommend the restaurant where we had dinner the first night. Prices are fair, and you can sit both inside and outside. Breakfast is fine with lots of choices. The second evening we had finner in Terrazze 45 in Fiesole, which can also be recommended. The view from the terrasse is just amazing.
As mentioned by others, it is really a good idea to take bus no. 7 down to Firenze. It is a good service that tickets can be bought at the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in late May. It was a wonderful experience in every aspect. The location with the view from the terrace from the hills over Florence is magical at any time of the day. Rooms very elegant and comfortable, nicely renovated to very high standards. No disturbing noise, only some lovely birdsong. Breakfast a gourmet treat. The staff just wonderful, very attentive, kind, helpful, open - a model for other hotels. Excellent parking availability if you come by car. Avoid the car for central Florence - take the bus which stops just outside the hotel, runs frequently, and goes to city ctr in 15 min. We have stayed in central Florence many times before, but for visiting the city this hotel on the Fiesole hills was a much better choice in all aspects.

This is a special location with a great staff. After a sticky day walking the crowded streets, waiting in lines and climbing the stairs of the Duomo in Firenze, you can relax at the top of the hill with a great meal, a wonderful breeze and a cool drink on the terrace while overlooking the valley.

The dinner was very good and reasonably priced. Breakfast and wi-fi are included in the price.

You could focus on a few minor annoyances that caused me to rate this a "very good" hotel and not an "excellent" hotel - the other reviews are accurate about a lack of luxury with some of the rooms and the size of the pool - but it didn't change our minds about wanting to return to this location.
(If you want luxury, the Belmonde is just next door, but in June the rooms start at about $1,000/night with taxes and we needed two rooms to accommodate our family.)

We had a fabulous stay at Villa Fiesole Hotel. The hotel staff are amazing, warm, service oriented people. We planned my 50th birthday party celebration and it was a beautiful evening with eight of our Italian friends who live in Florence. We were all very impressed with every moment of the evening. The food in the restaurant is excellent as was the service. We've stayed in many five star hotels in Florence; and Villa FiesoleHotel is the best hotel in Florence. Our hats off to the staff that made our experience wonderful: Christiani, Leonardo, Augusto, Danieli, Augusto, Lorrain, Louisa (best chef in Florence). From top to bottom this hotel is a find. The property is very lovely and overlooks the city of Florence for some of the most spectacular views you'll ever see. The hotel is a perfect base for all your Tuscan travels. You can take day trips to all the neighboring cities and towns and still enjoy the country. We will always stay at Villa Fiesole Hotel when in Florence as we have found a true gem . Thank you!

Room Tip: .rooms off the front terrace area are very nice

I just spent 4 nights here with my daughter. We arrived late in the evening and were shown to a room in the old part of the hotel. It was large but rather tired in its decoration, and I was disappointed given the photos of the hotel on TripAdvisor. I went down to the desk and told them I wasn't crazy about our room, and he said he would move us first thing in the morning. He was true to his word, and we were moved to one of the newer rooms, much like the ones on the website. The staff were very helpful in suggesting good local restaurants, of which there are several. We kept thinking we would go back into Florence at night for dinner, but once you are back up the mountain, having a prosecco on the terrace with a gorgeous view and a breeze, you really don't want to travel, and you don't have to! The bus into Florence is perfect--quick, easy, cheap, and I never had to use my car except to go into the center of Fiesole for dinner. The breakfast, which is on the terrace, is very nice. My only suggestion is that for this price point, it would be nice to have a few amenities, like real glasses in the rooms instead of plastic. The pool area is also very small. We never had a chance to spend time at the pool, but it's definitely more of a plunge pool than a lap swimming pool. I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: The older rooms are larger, with high ceilings and large bathrooms. The newer rooms are more recent...

We liked this hotel a lot. It is outside Florence, about a mile from the village of Fiesole. There is a bus that runs to both Florence & Fiesole pretty often. The only part we didn't like about that is you have to stand on a very busy street with essentially nowhere to stand waiting for the bus. Also, coming back to the hotel one night, the 10:05 bus never came, and the 10:35 bus came on time but then the driver pulled over after a block & got off the bus, saying nothing. He came back after about 20 minutes but it was disconcerting because we had no idea what was happening.

The hotel itself was quite nice. Our room (115) was spacious and pretty with a beautiful ceiling. The bed was really hard, like every bed we had in Italy. It had a lovely, huge, private terrace which we loved. There are trees so you can't really see all of Florence, and the busy road is right there so it is noisy, but the terrace was very nice. Note that on May 20th the air-conditioning was not yet turned on and the room did get hot. There are no screens on the windows anywhere that we saw in Italy so bugs do come in. The bathroom, which was lovely, had a poorly designed or installed shower enclosure, resulting in us flooding the bathroom every time we showered, which was really annoying. We did report it to the front desk.

The hotel has a nice deck where you can have cocktails while overlooking Florence, and an excellent restaurant for breakfast and dinner. We would stay here again. Do NOT use a GPS to find this hotel - ours got us really lost, which was frustrating as the hotel is on a major road so should be easy to find. They do have a free parking lot.

Room Tip: We loved the private terrace in room 115

The Hotel location is perfect, perched on one of the hills overlooking Florence. It's a quick taxi ride into the centre of Florence but will cost you 40 Euros - ouch! However there is a regular bus which stops just outside of the hotel which costs 3 Euros! The views are are beautiful and its lovely and peaceful. I would be cautious if you are have a problem with mobility as there are a lot of steps and you have to carry your own bags up to the reception. In fairness I did notice a stair lift which could be used but you would have to alert a member of staff if you wanted to use it. The Hotel is fine for a short stay as the facilities are on a small scale especially the pool & surrounding area. There is a small dining room and lounge but the upper terrace is quite large and spacious again it has a beautiful view over the city. The bedroom and bathroom are ok, quite compact but very clean. However the bed was so uncomfortable - I like a firm mattress but this was the equivalent of sleeping on a park bench! with cheap polyester pillows to boot, so not impressive for a 4 star Hotel. The staff are friendly especially on the front desk but the waiting staff can be a little less attentive you may have to keep seeking their attention if you require service. The wifi is easy to access with out passwords etc. In conclusion the location is great but the hotel does n't quite meet its four star status.
