“Excellent finishing and nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

We only did a one night pit stop here in the 2 bedroom apartment, for the outlet mall shopping, before driving onto Venice. Despite the other TA reviews, We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel and it's finishings. The staff were very friendly too. Certainly, you would need a vehicle to be staying here. If I had known earlier, may have considered this as a base for Tuscany. It seems that the hotel would be able to assist for hiking and wine tasting trips.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

Stayed for three days in the middle of July. Was not aware that I had to ask for the room with shower. Our room did not come with a shower, thought that would be standard. The front desk time only stays for a limited time. After certain time is no front desk staff. The breakfast was very limited. The on-site amenities are limited. For example, there are no towels available at the pool. It was expected that you would have to use your towels from your rooms for the pool. The room is only cleaned during the middle of the week, and not every day, so these towels had to be reused. This place is for people who stay for extended periods of times probably one week or more as a room came with a full kitchen. I did not expect this. Just want everyone to be aware.

Charming hotel in historic buildings carefully renovated and modernised into a hotel. Very fresh and clean appartement in light colours. Large rooms. Situated in the calm and beautiful countryside outside Firenze. Good location for trips by (rental) car in Tuscany. Easy and quick to take the train to Firenze. Wonderful gardens and surroundings. Loved the rosemary bushes growing on the hill behind the restaurant. Visited in april and the pool was nice but very cool. Friendly staff working in the reception.
When showering, the water was flowing out all over the floor of the bathroom, but it was not a big problem. Two beds were comfortable, but the other two were like camping beds and did not have very thick mattresses.
Didn't visit the restaurant. Used the kitchenette for selfcatering. It was small but quite enough equipped.
Stayed with family (three teenagers) for 4 nights. One of our best holidays!

The 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in seemed relatively new. It is very spacious and comes equipped with a kitchenette. In fact, the 2 bedrooms are very spacious as well. Our gripes - the rooms are pretty cold for spring and one of the showers does not have a proper place to accommodate the toiletries. But I must say the service of the front office is pretty good - when I brought the kettle to change, the staff did it very willingly, despite the fact that I had it changed 2 times! And of course another plus point is that it is really close to The Mall :)

Newly renowated, beautiful appartements, real tuscan style. The view was unforgettable from the palagio!!!!!
The rooms were clean, there were deckchairs outside and around the pool area. The staff was very kind, we had a welcome drink -more than one:), we got all the information we asked, the restaurant was perfect.

Overall, I give Villa Il Palagio an average rating as there were some really nice things and then some things that they really need to consider improving.

First, the positive:
- great location out in the Tuscan countryside - you will definitely need a car if you stay here, but we thought it worth it.
- big villas - we stayed in a 2 bedroom with another couple - two floors, a decent sitting area and table and enough of a kitchen for us to make our breakfast each morning.
- restaurant on location is quite good
- front desk staff was helpful with information and assistance

What could be improved:
- to get your luggage to your room, you need to drag it over a stretch of dusty gravel - no luggage carts and an elevator too small to carry more than 2 people and 2 bags at a time - seems like a really poor design
- air conditioner in our villa never worked properly even after daily complaints to the front desk - they even had a technician come look at it and it was still stifling in the upstairs bedroom.
- shower runs hot and cold (during the same shower) - not so bad in the summer, but would be a shock in the winter, I'm sure. Toilets keep running so you have to remember to push the handle again to get them to stop.
- cleaning is only done if you stay more than one week - we ran out of soap, shampoo and toilet paper and had to keep running out to try and find some. A mid-week fresh-up would be a really nice improvement - even if it's only to replenish supplies.

The most annoying thing is that the front desk is open for a limited number of hours, so if you head out for the day to explore, the chances of the front desk staff being available when you return is slim. We had more than one instance where we would have liked to get some information and the front desk was closed.

Room Tip: Ask about the disco nights and figure out where and when they'll happen during your stay. Then a...
