“Absolutely loved it!”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

I had a fantastic 4 night stay at Signa, and I absolutely loved it! In fact, I had to go back (unscheduled) for one more night as I absolutely loved it this place.

Location - The hotel is a short walk (15 minutes) or a hotel shuttle ride (5 minutes) from the local Signa station (about 800m) and from there a short 18 minute train journey to the main Firenze (Florence) train station. The hotel provides free shuttle service to and from the Signa station. Walking is the other option and I highly recommend this as Signa is very pleasant and quite a relaxing place to walk.

Hotel facilities - GREAT! Free wi-fi, clean and modern rooms, a safe and so much more. It was wonderful to have all these facilties FREE of charge. Another bonus was the free water from the mini-bar. This is a big plus especially in summer. A lot of other hotels charge ridiculous amounts for water!!! Oh, did I mention the FREE BREAKFAST! Loads of options...cakes, meat, bread, croissants, muffins, fruits, you name it. It was all there! They also have free parking if you have a car.

Hotel employees - FANTASTIC! Very helpful and fun-loving people. It was always good to see a smile in their faces. I loved stopping by for a quick chat. Thank you guys for making my trip very memorable! Shared a few laughs too with the employees.

Suggestions - Try the Scottish bar right across the street. Pretty good food. If you want to try some authentic hand-made gelatino, there's a store right next to the Scottish bar called "Gelateria Golosando". They have the best gelatino I had during my trip to Italy - HANDS DOWN!

I highly recommend Stilhotel and I'm definitely going back to Stilhotel, when I visit Italy next. Hopefully that will be soon :)

We had a wonderful experience at the Stilhotel May 4th-May 5th and will certainly be repeat visitors if we ever return to the area.

The hotel was small, but perfectly appointed. Spotlessly clean, modern, and attractive. The breakfast included a nice variety of meats, breads, pastries, and beverages. The room layout was amazing. Not one bit of space was wasted. There was an abundance of storage areas and hooks. The chair was very comfortable for reading and relaxing. There was a desk, safe, and mini fridge, and flat screen TV. Room temperature was efficient controlled by a modern thermostat. Added bonus! Free WIFI and it worked great everywhere. About the only thing we did not like about the room was the shower. It was a bit small and slippery.

The location was a great base for a visit to the Tuscany area and the price was very competitive. If you have a car, there is free parking. If you do not have a car (we didn’t), the staff will drive you to/from the train station. No fanfare or hassle, just ask them. We asked for a ride on our first trip to the train station and our last (with our luggage). The rest of the time, we enjoyed the 20 minute walk.

Directly next to the hotel are a grocery store and bank and across the street is an ATM and pharmacy. There are not a lot of dining options in the area, but surprisingly enough we really enjoyed the Scottish Pub across the street. Go in around 9:00pm, order a half litre of the house red and a pizza (over 30 choices), then sit back and watch the place fill up with Signa (pronounced Seena, silent G) residents.

Last, but certainly not least, stay at the Stil Hotel because of the staff. Every single staff member was friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We were always greeted cordially and with a smile. You can tell that the Stilhotel is very well managed.

We've just returned from a short break at the Stilhotel and thought we'd write a review to tell everyone how perfect it was. The hotel is modern, spotlessly clean and in an ideal location to explore the wonderful region of Tuscany. The best thing about thehotel was it's wonderful staff who were so friendly and did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Many thanks from Scott, Helen & Alfie

My friend and I decided to visit Florence over the weekend and we found a good flight+hotel package.
we stayed for 2 nights but I have to say that the staff are just amazing! they are extremely helpful and go out of their ways to assist.
The hotel is in the outskirt of Florence and cost us 40 euros to get there from Florence's central train station but Francesca (one of the lovely receptionists) gave us the train time table and explained it all to us..turned out that Florence central train station is only 18 minutes away by train and it costs no more than 3.70euros return! just make sure you catch the train on time..there are only 2 trains per hour.
but even if you get it wrong or get lost, the locals are friendly and helpful..
there is a supermarket 20 seconds walk from the hotel and a cafe as well.. if you prefer not to go for the breakfast in the hotel, the cafe serves amazing sandwiches!
Florence is a beautiful city and the hotel staff have certainly made our stay quite comfortable.

It was the best hotel that we've found in our vacations. In this trip we were at Paris, Venice, Rome and Signa.
The quality of the room is excellent. Free parking.
Near to Signa train station and 15 minutes by train from Florence.
We want to male a special mention for Francesca and Elisa, they are very professional and efficient.
They were very warm and kind with us.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It is simply magnificent. It's location between Florence and Pisa make it ideal for visiting either city. The service and quality are so good that we both agreed it should be a 4 star hotel at least.
The staff are all super friendly, and share their local knowledge with you to make your time in Italy all the more unique and enjoyable. From them we got all sorts of help and advice, right down to which wine at the local supermarket was the locally made one!
I never write reviews of hotels, but I couldn't not post a review of this hotel after staying there. I will undoubtedly stay here again.

Previous reviews commented correctly on Stilhotel's cleanliness, immaculate modern appearance, outstanding service, and amenities...everything is first rate! However, finding the Stilhotel is tricky, at best, because of the numerous one-way streets. If approaching from the south on Via Roma, you will be forced to turn right a few blocks before the hotel. Follow the traffic (it turns left) and enter the roundabout (enter at 6 o'clock, exit at 10 o'clock). The Stilhotel will be on the right, just past the Signa Coop (a large market on the left). Once arriving at the hotel, you will be rewarded with immaculate rooms and exceptional service! The staff armed us with a local map and train schedule. The Signa train station is about a mile away with a free parking area near by. The train ride to Florence Santa Maria Novella station (the last stop) takes 18 minutes. Oddly, train tickets cannot be purchased at the Signa train station on weekends. One must purchase them at the Bar Roma, just outside the Signa train station. On one day, we inquired about a day trip to Pisa. The staff suggested we drive and immediately programmed a Garmin and lent it to us. It was a good recommendation. Lastly, the free internet service works well, parking is secure, breakfast is good (loved the fresh fruit) and plentiful, rooms are very clean and nicely appointed with many "extra" amenities (refrig, safe, coffee maker, bath robes, to name a few), and of course, the staff is exceptional. As with many gems, some are hard to find. Such is true of Stilhotel, but this one is worth the search.
