“wonderfull hotel!”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

We were at villa carlotta on our honeymoon and this was a great hotel. The rooms was perfect (we had a big room) and the service was the best I have seen in a hotel. The food was ok, but we think the breakfast was small. Only jam, nutella, 1 cheese and 1 meat product. 2 times the crossaint was burned, and several times it was bread that seemed old. The food in the resturant was good, but the atmosphere was not so nice. Maybe if they could turn of the big light, so it would be a little bit more romantic. The rooms was not soundproof at all, But totally this was a clean, nice and wonderfull hotel that we hope that we can go back to! They also have dvds you can borrow for free and watch, very nice after a long day in the city. Thank you for making our honeymoon so wonderfull!

Room Tip: recomende the suite! room 111 was great. maybe a litle bit noisy from upstairs, but nice room!

We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Carlotta. The location was great. Well, it is quite some walking distance too central Florens but the area itself was also surprisingly nice. Friendly and helpful staff, lovely furnished and clean rooms. The only thing that did not live up to the rest was the breakfast which could be better. Service and the location itself was great but could have better choices.

When u pay for a 4 star hotel, you assume the a/c will work! Not the case here, my travel agent even called & they said everything was fine w the a/c. It's blazing hot in the rooms & we are paying for 2!
Staff is as friendly as they can be but by the time you get back to the room from all day tours, management is gone & front desk can't do anything.
Had to take cold showers & a sleeping pill to fall a sleep!

Villa Carlotta is just a great place to stay. Large spacious room and bathroom. Clean and airy. Terrific front desk staff. Lovely living room, chess boards, computer available, comfy furniture. It is a 20 minute walk over the Ponte Vecchio into Florence proper but we enjoyed getting to know our little neighborhood on that sid of the Arno. Well worth it for the peace and quiet and change of scenery. But we were there 4 nights. If you were only in Florence a couple nights I would stay right in town. Only drawback, the breakfast was a little sparse some mornings if you didn't come down early. Isabella at the Front Desk is a DREAM!

Room Tip: We were in room 111 - it was great...I might have preferred higher up since there is an elevator.

The Villa Carlotta was a lovely surprise on our recent trip to Florence. Even though it is not city central is is an easy walk into the center of activity. The hotel itself, is lovely, you feel as if you are on a residential street, quiet and charming. The staff was warm,helpful and friendly and they spoke English.

Our room was more than we could hope for, we needed a triple and what we got was a surprise ( please look at pictures). For the first time in Italy we received a true queen size bed, pocket doors separated the room if so desired, and a comfy twin was on the other side, with it's own bathroom and closet space. Our room had a TV flat screen, but we were far too busy site seeing to enjoy it, and we had a refrigerator. SO..2 bathrooms and privacy pocket doors..lovely.

Our stay included free parking,wifi, and breakfast buffet in a charming dining room. All of these are a huge plus.
The negatives, the only one for us was that it was not city central, but the walk was quite nice and there is a bus stop available if walking is not your thing.I knew this before I booked and took that into consideration because we were dealing with parking for the car. If you have problems walking ( about 15 mintutes to the center of Florence) this may not be the ideal situation for you, but we enjoyed the walk and I am 57.

This hotel was great, the main house is so cute and in a beautiful location off a gorgeous tree lined street. It is a little way out of the centre of the city but the bus takes you to within easy walking distance. The room was quiet and so dark and the aircon made it so easy to sleep. They also offer great free wi fi.
We walked from Piazalle Michelangelo down to the hotel and it was a beautiful walk past all the old villas that are now converted into hotels.

Hotel set in a quierter part of Florence b ut only 5 minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio and all the night life. The hotel is charming old Tuscan style. The rooms are large and very clean. There is ample parking space at the rear of the hotel and is securem as the gates are closed at night. The foor in the resturant was really nice and we will definiately be booking again for next year.
