Hotel Mulino di Firenze
Ranked #30 of 409 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

This hotel was very good but is a little out of town centre. The hotel offers a shuttle bus but I found these were not enough, as only offered at 9.00 and 10.00am in the morning and 2 pick ups in arvo at 5.30 and 6.30pm. I think the lack of further times detracts from staying here, as its a long walk from town if you want to come back during the day or if you want to stay in for dinner.

The hotel did offer a good selection for the breakfast buffet and a nice touch was that they made your coffee/tea made fresh after you sat down. This is far better than pots of hot coffee sitting in an urn.

The hotel also has free bicycles you can us, but beware Italian drivers don't follow road rules and found bike riding a chore. Though there is a dirt path near the hotel that runs along the river that you could ride on to get almost into town.

The only other issues we had was that they advertise and show pictures of a pool but we only found out on arrival that this was not available as not cleaned and ready until May, as they don't heat.

We were sick whilst staying here and asked for a pot of hot water and slice of lemon so we could drink in our room without infecting others. They wanted to charge me $9 euros for a pot of hot water which is ridiculous but after I complained they were happy to waive the fee.

Dear Pawsteven,

I wish to thank You for Your kind comment, I am glad to know that Your enjoyed Your stay with us, especially the breakfast that I think is the moment that can change Your day from "nice" to "special"!

I would like to inform You, and other travellers that are thinking to come to the Mulino too, that to get to Florence by bike there is a large bicycle path for almost all the ride, except of the first Kilometer. The front-desk Staff will be always happy to give You this and many other tips!

I am glad You talked about room service: at the Mulino You can ask for food/drinks to be served in the room. This service has an additional cost of Euro 9,00, but if You do not agree with the price You can always choose to enjoy Your drinks at the bar or garden area with no extra charge!

The next time we will have the pleasure to welcome You at the Mulino You will find our brand-new swimming pool open!

Kindest regards

My husband and I spent two nights at Hotel Mulino di Firenze toward the end of March. We were both surprised and pleased upon checking in that we had been upgraded from a standard room with no view to a nice large room with a partial view of the Arno River. The room was spacious and well appointed with antique furnishings and artwork. Although the pool had been drained and wasn't much to look at, the beautiful river made up for it. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the city center, however, one can catch the bus (about a 5 minute walk from the hotel) for 2 euros (1.50 if you buy it in advance), which makes many stops in the heart of the city. My husband and I found it refreshing to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, especially after just leaving Rome. From the helpful front desk attendants to the friendly bar and restaurant staff, everyone at Hotel Mulino di Firenze was wonderful! If you're looking for a nice getaway with your significant other or maybe even your friends, I would highly recommend Hotel Mulino di Firenze.

Awesome hotel. A bit out of town but this makes it quiet and beautiful. Shuttle service very handy and was used both days of our stay. Arrives late first night and had dinner at the hotel - awesome restaurant highly recommend it and it is good value for the quality of service and food - impressed as most hotels don't have top quality restaurants but this is an exception. Breakfast here was the best on our whole three week honeymoon - breakfast of a five star hotel - awesome coffee and high quality pastries and lots of other options - maybe the restaurant makes some of the food fresh on site it definitely tastes like it! We were also upgraded to an amazing large room for our honeymoon was very impressed. You should stay here if you stay in Florence. Perfect.

We had a wonderful four night stay here, our room 103 was large and very comfortable with views across the Arno River. The reception staff are friendly and attentive, the Restaurant Il Grano Doro is excellent dinner and breakfast is available here, the menu choices are very good and the wine list is similarly very good. This hotel is situated in a quiet area, the interior decor and courtyard areas are beautiful. There is a shuttle bus service available, it is wise to book the day before for trip into Florence and return, the drop off point is at this hotels sister hotel in Florence, the shuttle service is free, depending on the time of year you visit is the number of shuttles that are running we stayed April and two in the morning left the hotel one at 9 am then the next one hour later the two return shuttles were five thirty or six thirty pm. The bus takes about 10 to 15 minutes . Taxis also are easy to obtain the hotel will call and the wait time is within 5 minutes.
We really enjoyed our stay here, there is also a pizzeria about a kilometre down the road from the hotel and the meals here are very good , pizza, pastas and meat dishes, this is particularly good for lunch time, but is also open for dinner, the prices are very reasonable.
Would like to recommend highly the Hotel Mulino Di Firenze!

This hotel was probably the highlight of our European accommodation as the room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the staff were friendly and professional, the views delightful and the food excellent. The whole dining experience was most enjoyable and breakfast on the terrace is a must! There is a shuttle to town and it's only a short walk to local restaurants. I am pleased to add that I left my shoe in our room and it was no trouble for it to be returned to me in Australia. Many thanks and what a pleasurable memory we made.

The hotel is very nice with charming decorations. The beds are really comfortable. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. The overall architecture of the hotel is very antique. The hotel offers a shuttle service which is ideal for roaming the streets of Florence. Although you must register before for this service. The pool is a plus point. The food is good. Despite the location of the hotel which is bit far from the main street I had a fun time. It’s a place to remember.

Stayed here with my wife and some great friends in September 2013. Fantastic hotel, the staff were all very nice especially the barman who kept us entertained. We had meals here which were of excellent quality. The entire property is very clean, the rooms are spacious probably the largest rooms we had on our holiday in Italy. Would love to get back there.
