It's such a beautiful setting and the walk to work is so close. The bed is older and a bit firm and squeaky and the room a bit small. It has an air conditioner which is nice because the temperature outside gets over 30 Celsius. Breakfast is very nice and the coffee is amazing. The staff is very helpful and polite. My only gripe is the bathroom which is nice bit the water in the sink and tub doesn't drain quickly leaving a soap scum.
There is an awesome pool area with a bar and is very relaxing if you don't mind women in thong type bathing suits

The hotel is situated about 6 miles from the centre of Florence. It consists of the original villa and an annex, where some of the bedrooms are located above the restaurant. We stayed in the annex and the bedroom and bathroom were both very nice. The decor of the room is in keeping with the villa and is in the typical Italian antique style and of a high quality. A good breakfast is provided and there is the option to eat inside or outside on a terrace in the lovely garden which was very relaxing. The swimming pool was not open as it was early in the season, but it looked very nice. There is a frequent bus service from Sesto Fiorentino to Florence, but it can take quite a long time due to traffic congestion.

The hotel is old, lost glory by far. The swimming pool you see in the pictures is not there. Oh yes, it is, but the water is green and the pool is closed. The beautiful rooms you are promised... you will not get. You will be staying in an old, cold and small room, with no view. The staff is not friendly at all. (Except for the older gentleman at the bar and the girls at breakfast)
Breakfast is horror. There are only sugary things and worst of all. There were busses full of Asian people staying and the ate all the breakfast. The buffet was completely empty and we had to wait an hour for the buffet to get al little filled again. It was the same the morning after and the morning after. In the close area is nothing to do or to see. There is no spa, no swimming pool, no sport activities, no bar in the evening and last but not least. We would like to dine in the restaurant one evening. It was not possible because of a party that was going on. So the place is all about earning fast money and giving nothing in return. We booked for one week. We left after 3 days, it was this bad. Please read our other reviews. We are no difficult people at all. We love things easily. Please, DO NOT GO THERE !!!

We stayed here as part of our Trafalgar Cost Saver week long tour of Italy. The Hotel is located quite far from the city, however it was quiet, clean and cozy. Our 2 story room was quirky but memorable... having to walk down the stair in the middle of the night was a bit tricky!! Ahh!! The food was average.

A quick taxi drive from the train station for around 25 Euros - be careful though as our driver was quite eager to get us there....looking at other drivers, this seem to be an Italian theme - Eagerness.
The Hotel is situated in a very green area with high trees and great views. The guy at reception was confident and friendly. Our room wasn't ready, but we left our bags there and were told exactly what we can do while we wait - 20 min. The pool area was scenic and quiet, with a bar area that served drinks and food. The pool was clean and big with a lot of shaded areas that was useful after hours in the sun.
Our room was big with a sizable bathroom. WiFi was not the best.
The Hotel is 30min away from the city center on one bus - number 2 or 28 for 2€ if you pay on the bus.
The restaurant at the hotel was good and not really that expensive. The menu seems to change every few days which is good if you're eating there every night as there is only a few dishes on each course section. Service was good and friendly. The main course of meat platter was way to salty with no vegetables or salad on the plate. Ive never eaten or asked for salad, but the lack of this made the dish very beige.
We asked the guy at reception to book us in for a wine tour which he did with a smile on his face.
All in all, no complaints here other than the usual -WiFi, mosquitoes and no food between 3pm and 7pm.
