“No detail at this amazing hotel has been overlooked!”
Reviewed 20 April 2011

My husband and I chose Il Salviatino to be the final stop during our honeymoon in Italy. After days driving around Tuscany, then hiking about Cinque Terre, we wanted a relaxing hotel to enjoy our final few days in Italy, and this was the perfect place. I wouldn't even call Il Salviatino a 'hotel' - more like a secluded manor in the hills overlooking Florence. When you arrive there is no front desk - just warm and highly professional staff standing by to greet you with champagne for your tour of the grounds and your room. Amazing!

My husband and I stayed at II Salviatino for four nights at the end of March and enjoyed every minute of it. It was a bit more then we usually spend but we decided to treat ourselves and it was totally worth it.

From the moment you arrive you are greeted by a personal service ambassador who is there to make your stay more comfortable. We had a few different ambassadors and they were all wonderful, helpful and friendly. At every turn they tried to make our stay more enjoyable.

Our room was beautiful and cozy. The food was wonderful. The grounds and view were breathtaking. I also took advantage of the spa while we were there and the Thai massage is the best I have ever had.

The only thing we weren't sure about what tipping. The level of service was out of this world and we weren't sure if we should tip as we go or at the end (or even at all). We decided to tip at the end but read that it is not expected in Europe. We wanted to recognize the level of service though. I'm interested what others did.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite and it was beautiful.

A room with a stunning view over the city of Florence, staff excellent in customer care, food and wine to showcase Tuscany at it's best...we will return to Il Salviatino. Chic, under-stated luxury.

We stayed at Il Salviatino for four nights after returning to Florence from the Tuscan Countryside. We purposely chose to stay outside of the city proper this time so we could relax and enjoy a bit of the Florence hillside (Fiesole). The hotel is beautiful; our room, lovely and spacious, the bathroom divine. The staff could not have been more helpful; they made it clear that they were there for us, all we had to do was ask. Breakfast was delicious as well as dinner. We had drinks on the terrace overlooking the city, very romantic. Staying at Il Salviatino offers the feeling of staying in the country while only being a 10 minute ride from the center of historic Firenze. Perfetto, magnifico, bella.

The hotel: We are planning our spring wedding at Il Salviatino and decided to vacation here and meet with the staff a couple months before the big event. Prior to our arrival, we corresponded several times with Cristiano, the ever so gracious and accommodating Event Coordinator.

Upon arriving at the luxurious villa of Il Salviatino we were welcomed by very friendly staff. Next we were offered a delicious sparking rose and seated on the terrace overlooking a breathtaking view of Florence.

Our suite was breathtaking. Domo Jr Suite has a beautiful private living room with a high tech mirrored television and magnificent views of the Domo. The bathroom was amazing: both standing classic tub and separate rainfall shower surrounded by glass and privacy door. You have the seductive option of opening doors to view the bedroom while you shower.

The land itself is amazing and perfectly located on the peaceful hills of Florence, with less than a 20 minute ride to the city center. Shuttle bus is offered every hour or a taxi can also be requested. Free high speed WiFi available on property. Computer, copier, scanner and printer available in lobby.

The restaurant: The main restaurant is located downstairs with a clever underground passage that leads to the Greenhouse. Il Salviatino also grows its own herbs. Chef Carmen truly takes pride in the presentation, quality and taste of his innovative culinary creations. From our lavish dinner to our Saturday brunch, we were impressed with the way he transforms simple classic dishes into magnificent bites of modern creations. For example, we appreciate how the chef took the basic over easy egg with sausage and prepared it as a light, yet satisfyingly tasty dish with the perfect consistency of meat and beet greens. Every dish we tasted at the dinner was also a unique modern take on the best of Italian culinary classics

We highly recommend dining at Il Salviatino and enjoying your own culinary experience, whether it be a fantastic breakfast, a brilliant lunch on the terrace or an extraordinary dinner at the restaurant.

The staff: From the concierge to the bartender to the waiter, every staff member treats you with absolute kindness and consideration. Cristiano made several excellent recommendations for lunch and dinner in Florence, as well he uggested wine tours and various activities not only to entertain our wedding guests, but also to offer a true Tuscan experience.

Grazie Mille to Cristiano, Chef Carmen, Dominico and the entire staff at Il Salviatino for creating such a warm and welcoming visit. We look forward to our next visit.

After visiting several times Florence in the past, recently we had the chance to spend again a beautiful weekend there, and we had a stay in the best Accommodation ever experienced… I wrote consciously Accommodation because this place is much more than just a Hotel – this is a unique experience. Simply unique, because of the wonderful garden, the surroundings and terraces and the building as it is taking u in a different world and different way and level of hospitality. Something extra with superlatives….
Entering the building pls do not look for a Check-in or any kind of Reception area, which would be the usual place for administrative issues. The reason is because it doesn’t exist – as there is no need for this… You are simply invited into the building and your stay in Salviatino can start immediately in the huge library – used as main hall, where u will find the wide range of collection of books (including TOYS for BOYS, and hundreds of famous classics as well…), so the cultural part will not miss during your stay... All this u can do sitting in the perfectly handmade sofas and enjoying the very decent and sophisticated smell, which is all around in the building giving a special extra input to your senses.
Your well being just will continue in entering your room, where u can see the perfect and professional combination of the High-Tec technology and the classical architect Toscana style of the last some hundreds of years. The perfectly trained staff will show to u the functioning of the system and will also present to u the TV, Internet a home movie system covered into a huge mirror (!)…
For your drinks and talks the terraces are perfectly placed with most beautiful the panoramic view on the beautiful Florence. Just stay relaxed and have a wine and watch the city with the night lights. More beautiful than a dream…
The food is excellent and the service is also perfect and personal. Your stay should include a treatment in the Thai spa. We took the the opportunity and – as high level professionals from the management side - after the 2 hours treatment they asked to fill out a form about the experiences. I couldn’t write other thing only that it was simply better than in Thailand...
So your stay is Salviatino is a perfect stay, our family definitely we will return and simply enjoy the life in Florence and especially in Il Salviatino.
