“Location with potential, but doesn't deserve 4 stars”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

The location offers fantastic views, and the property is huge with olive oil orchards. The family that runs the hotel is very nice and helpfull, but to claim 4 stars it takes a bit more, quite a bit.
My room 12 bis had a nice view, but it was so small that the bed could barely fit in the room. The bathroom very small, but decently clean (the inside of the closed was instead very dirty) needed some repair work. Breakfast is not quite at the 4 star level. But if you don't mind all of this you'll enjoy a very relaxing and quiet stay in a friendly environment.

Stayed May 2014, travelled on business

Peccato non si sia trovato bene! Se ci avvertiva avremmo potuto provvedere ad in intervenire o trasferirla in un'altra camera a lei più gradita. Ci dispiacerà non rivederla, a noi lei era molto simpatico! Cordiali saluti Francesca, Elisabetta & Costanza

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

We stayed for three nights at the end of March and early April. I had been concerned because we were on the late flight into Pisa airport. Despite only arriving at 1.30 a.m. on the very night when the clocks were being set back for summer we were warmly welcomed by Ireena. The room, number 12, was spacious with a large bathroom. When we (finally) rose the next day, we saw that the room had lovely views over the gardens and to Florence. The hotel is situated in its own estate of olive groves and the views from the gardens overlooking the ancient centre of Florence are exceptional. The easy trip down into Florence by the number 25 bus takes about 15 to 20 minutes and the return ticket for two costs 4.20 euro. The walk through the grounds to reach the bus stop takes about 10 minutes and, in the sun, as it was when we were there, it is a relaxing and scenic stroll. Of particular note is the warmth of the staff who made my wife’s birthday special with a complimentary bottle of prosecco and a dessert with a candle in it and a nice floral arrangement which awaited us in the room when we retired after dinner. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the villa smart and the food good. A lovely place to stay!

Room Tip: Room 12 has lovely views

We have been with our family (6 adults) from 28th nov. to dec 10 (2013), at the Hotel Villa Le Rondini.
The hotel is beautifully situated on a hill with a magnificent view of Firence.
The food (breakfast and 4-course-dinner) was excellent! Big compliments to the Cook (..)
The service, management and the waiters were very friendly and helpful.
In short we have had a very great time in Hotel Villa Le Rondini!!!
Thanks!!
Fam. Flierman
