Stayed 4 nights/5 days in a junior suite (room 30). Couldn't fault this hotel for anything - great value as the hotel is pretty much "all inclusive" - internet, parking etc (suites come with half board, breakfast and dinner), perfect service (kudos to the hotel for managing to be extremely professional without being stuffy or overly formal - seriously well trained and well informed staff), wonderful room (plenty of space - huge by European standards - with an amazing bath and (separate) shower). Location is perfect with a well organized hourly shuttle bus to Florence - about 20 mins by bus. Main building, grounds and pool are lovely - wish I had more time to spend in the hotel.
If you are a discerning traveler with a budget that can bear the cost (close to 700 Euro/night with taxes) this is THE choice in Florence. Well worth a special visit to Florence or Italy just to experience Il Salviatino. We had originally planned to stay in a villa but had to change our plans as we could only stay a few days here - this was a great option - felt very much like a private villa but with the comfort of a 5 star hotel. Very romantic location with great views. Would make an excellent location for a wedding.
