I stayed at Il Salviatino in December--it was my first trip to Florence. I've stayed at hotels all my life. As a matter of fact, my father was a hotel manager, so I literally spent my childhood in hotels. I have to say that Il Salviatino is possibly the best hotel I've ever visited. The setting, in Fiesole, above Florence proper, is magnificent. The views are out of this world--like a painting by Michelangelo. The hotel itself is housed inside a historic mansion that exudes mystery and romance. The rooms are large, comfortable, exquisitely furnished and possess all modern amenities--the mirror turns into a TV! "Service Ambassadors" (a combination of butler and personal assistant) are at your beck and call 24 hours a day. The food is truly amazing--dishes are prepared on the spot by skilled chefs. I am planning another trip to Florence just so that I can stay at Il Salviatino again.
