My wife and I stayed here for 3 days in a mini suite. The difference between a suite and a double is overstated. The suite has more square footage, sure, and a sofa, but my advice is stick with a double.

The hotel seems a little disjointed. There are many spaces on the ground floor that seem unattended.
There is plenty of staff, all very polite and helpful, but they are congregated either at the front door or in the resturant.
There's no thriving bar in the main building. You need to walk to the pool building (which is great) and find some refreshment there. There's another building which houses the spa in the basement.
The finish in all areas is top notch, the complimentary shuttle to town is essential (the hotel is too far to walk on a regular basis), the resturant (also next to pool) is ok.
It was a tossup between this hotel and the 4 seasons. This hotel got it because trip advisor was suggesting it was half the price. By the time you get redirected to whichever website ...it isn't! It was actually dearer at 700+euro/ night...the place ticks all the boxes but just somehow not enough to wow me into thinking that the price justified the product.
Sorry villa cora but nah, at top dollar you need some more substance to go with the style.

I have stayed here several times and it really stays wonderful. From check in until check out it was flawless. The gardens stay beautiful full of thousands of white rose blossoms. The pool is a great relief from the pleasures of central Florence. The van drivers are so polite and helpful and central Florence is thus so easy to visit. The rooms on the "piano nobile" are so tasteful and comfortable . The restaurant was full every night because it was so good. But most of all from the general manager to the front desk staff to the restaurant cooks and staff and on , it was so pleasant and charming. My dog was treated as royalty , it was his third visit. We were all made to feel as honored guests. There are not many hotels that can achieve that goal.

I knew what to expect in the glorious & lavish interiors from the many photos I'd seen, but they cannot show the highest quality of care from all the staff ! The attention to detail, wonderful food & sublime surroundings made this four day respite after a wedding so special ! Breakfast is displayed like a work of Art, & nothing is to much trouble from the courteous staff.
Dinner by the beautifully lit poolside & their very own Villa Cora Chianti ! Bathroom , all marble & every woman's dream !
There's a free mini-bus shuttle takes 7 minutes into town dropping off point at The Savoy & seriously expensive Designer shops, a stroll to the Duomo & the most delicious gelato in the world ! Mojito flavour for me!
This is a truly wonderful experience, you get what you pay for & it's worth it !

Room Tip: We chose a room at the front with a balcony, first floor & there is a lift !

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary at the Grand Hotel Villa Cora, a privately owned establishment. The staff were naturally helpful, attentive, friendly and not overbearing. The small things that make the difference were provided: mini mint ices, fruit drinks offered with a smile while relaxing at the pool. The restaurant was pleasant and next to the pool, the food good. The look was sophisticated Italian which is also reflected in the rooms.My husband and I would definitely return.
The hotel is also perfectly placed for access to Florence and areas in Tuscany.
