Hotel is not very fancy but they have a very friendly and helpfull staff. Breakfast is a little poor,but when you ask for example for a sliced tomato,it's no problem. And instead of the coffee out of the machine,you can get a fresh cappuchino.I would'nt spent my holiday here,but for a night or a couple of nights is very okay.

We had a car so it was nice. A little out of the way but the pool was great so it was nice to get away from the crowds in the cities for a while. We stayed 5 nights and visited Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena from this one spot. Breakfast had a great selection, the only weak spot was the orange juice. AC was better than most.

a lovely family hotel a short drive away from Florence. What the hotel lacks in immediate surroundings is definitely made up by a huge pool the kids appreciated in what was heat wave weather. Double room for family at excellent quality/price. We will return to stay at this hotel on our next trip to the north of Tuscany.

Found this hotel last minute on Venere - we needed something close to Florecnce, but with parking for our car. It was a bit hard to find, but we were driving in the dark. Excellent hotel. Good bed (my bad back requires a firm bed, and this one was perfect for me), excellent breakfast, quiet rooms, good shower. Would come back here again.

The hotel staff were great and very helpful in planning our day trips from the hotel and arranging our dinner reservations. One young clerk was less than warm, however competent. Driving to & from the town is a bit confusing. The bus service to Florence works great and ended up costing our family of four less than the cost of parking our rental car in Florence! Great restaurants in the area. The Il Vecchio Casale Pizzeria is only a short drive from the hotel and is much more the what the term Pizzeria indicates. The food, service & view was great!

Exceptional hotel--exceptionally clean; very knowledgeable, courteous, helpful, and professional staff. Our junior suite was extremely spacious for our family of four and pet. by far one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in, anywhere in Europe! Breakfast buffet was more than sufficient, and use of the local bus system makes getting around very easy.

The Hermitage is a very nice property. We did have some problems following the directions the hotel gave, but finally found our way (we drove from Bologna). It is in a residential area and VERY quiet. Our room was quite nice with a very large balcony. The staff was friendly and helpful, plus there is a computer guests can use. We did not have a meal in the restaurant except for the breakfast provided by the hotel which was acceptable. We found the Hermitage to be exactly what we needed after a long journey...very comfortable, quiet, and accomodating.

Overall we were very pleased with the hotel. However, our criteria for selecting this hotel included the fact that it had a restaurant in the hotel. Unfortunately we arrived much later than expected due to bad accidents on the road and were told that the restaurant was always closed on Friday evenings. We were not too pleased to have to get back in the car after a 9 hour drive to find somewhere to eat. This should be mentioned in the details. Otherwise staff, rooms and swimming pool excellent.

Because of a late flight we needed a hotel for one night near Firenze. Hermitage proved to be an excellent choice! Located close to the airport it had a convenient location yet almost a country feel to it. The hotel is nicely decorated, with very clean rooms and good breakfast - probably an excellent breakfast for Italy ;-). I thought it was nice to be the only non-italian guest, don't like tourist traps. Next morning we went to visit the Medici Villa in town which was excellent as well - no other tourists!!! We could wander around the villa with no queues of other people in the way. What a find. I recommend you visit the Villa when staying at Hermitage!

An excellent place for travellers to stay on their first night after arriving at Florence's airport, and who immediately rent a car. The meal we had in the restaurant was excellent - especially the beef sauteed with porcini mushrooms and arugula, and the local Carmignano wine that can rarely be purchased in the United States. The location of the hotel was very close to the Medici villa at Poggio ai Caiano - a must-see for art historians, but rarely visited by the general tourist.
