A classic Italian villa hotel about a 20 minute walk from the centre in a very attractive leafy suburb, adjacent to the Pitti Palace gardens, which are well worth a visit for the views over Florence. Very good breakfast, excellent service from all the staff, including a very informative overview of the local sites and attractions when we first arrived (from Antonia in reception). The hotel also has bikes which are free to hire (great for getting into the centre and around the sites), free car park and free Wi-Fi with no password required. The hotel is also easy to get to from Pisa as it's on the right side of the city.
We hired 3 rooms for 3 nights until 13/08/13, all rooms were fine and we recommend this hotel.
Tip: If you want some really good Italian ice cream, avoid the city centre and go to the ice cream/cake shop on the round-about just down from the hotel (on the walk into Florence centre) - the ice cream is better and about a 1/3 of the price.
