The location is sooo beautiful. The room is spacious. The bed was a little to flimsy. The wall needed to be touched up. The staff was friendly. The location is a little far from the main city but I found that too be so nice. One could take a beautiful walk down to the city or one could take the shuttle provided by the hotel however you do need to reserve it. The hotel is a walk away from the Michaelangelo square. This place was a great break from the hotels in the middle of the action and yet close enough to it.

Superb...this was so worth every penny. The views of Florence were beautiful and it was even possible to walk 15-20 min and get into the main area of Florence. On the way back however was uphill so we took a taxi. The pool was a great relief after a hot day and it was so peaceful at the hotel. The service was top notch and the room was amazing with luxurious decor. My husband especially liked the flat screen big TV with internet on it. I would definitely want to go back to Florence again, just to stay there again even. I am going to highly recommend this villa to everyone that goes to Florence.
