We stayed here for a week and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The service is impeccable, the room was fantastic and the food was great. The location is absolutely beautiful - just unbelievably gorgeous.

The hotel is situated about ~20 minutes outside of the city, so the hotel has a complimentary shuttle that runs every half hour. It's a perfect solution to staying outside the city center and it's fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel, honestly. It was fantastic.

Amazing place. Great rooms. We were upgraded without even asking and had a private study on a SECOND FLOOR with views of the city and countryside and a bathtub in a loft. Delicious food. The complimentary breakfast could feed an army. Beautiful pool which is great for the hot days. Most accommodating staff you can imagine. You could barely finish your sentence before they were on it. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong.

We stayed two nights at il salviatino on a trip through tuscany in June. The house itself, the nice rooms and of course the awesome service are great. As already mentioned in other reviews the hotel is not located in citycenter but the free shuttle brings you directly to piazza del duomo which is perfect. Also we want to mention the great breakfast and the nice pool which we also used one (very hot) afternoon. We didn't try the restaurant but relied on some nice recommendations from the receptionist in the village of Fiesole. From there you have a breathtaking view over Florence. Only drawback is of course the high price, however, in this respect we feel the overall package is simply worth the money.

I recently stayed at this hotel and I found myself very well. The hotel is not in the city center but well connected to it thought a free shuttle service. My room was in the main building on the first floor. Room very nice, with arched windows typical of the Tuscany overlooked the garden and vegetation. Everything was very clean. the pool of the hotel, as well as the small spa in this hotel, it's nice but a little 'insignificant for the structure. The restaurant is very nice and also the splendid library with priceless works of literature. Ideal for relaxing outside the busy city! recommended!

My wife and I stayed at this fantastic hotel with stunning views, which was only matched by a stunning hotel, truly beautiful experience. Don't get me wrong we have stayed at better hotels and enjoyed better service and eaten at better hotels, however the overall experience and to be made to feel like a billionaire was hard to match.

Florence it self was OK, not what I expected, I had thought it would be grander and that usual Italian chic, which it simply missed, but I would return just to stay at the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden room, number 5 lovely

We spent two nights in this excellent hotel which is in a 15th century renaissance villa on a hill outside Florence. The location is stunning with great views on the Tuscan countryside and the city. A free shuttle (that departs every hour) takes the guests to the center of the city.

The service at Il Salviatino is truly five start in every respect. As we were on our honeymoon we got upgraded to a large suite. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

The restaurant makes amazing Tuscan food - we ate there both nights. You should however be warned that the portions are really big and the food is rich. The first night we had three courses and it took us quite a while to recover from the sheer amount of food :)

Parking was very easy on site as was the access to the hotel by car. Driving in the Tuscan countryside is however not something that we would recommend if you have a large car as the roads can get really narrow. However if you have a small car you can really enjoy the breathtaking landscape.

All in all a very memorable stay and a wonderful hotel.

We loved this place - after a fairly pricey trip around Tuscany with many of the places leaving us feeling a bit ripped off - this was a real treat. The grounds are on the hill above Florence which is gorgeous and the rooms are different but classy. We had a room at the front of the house and despite being actually quite small, the view was breathtaking.

We ate in the restaurant in the evening which was pricey, but the food was excellent and the staff lovely. I agree with other reviewers that there are some areas of the hotel that are a little odd - and the restaurant is one of these - down a long strangely carpeted hallway that is littered with huge room diffusers - I think they must continue to have issues with smells. But overall - the service is great, the hotel stylish and the location unbeatable.
