Erminio Villani was such a wonderful host. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. It is simple and authentic. Add to your stay a walking tour of Florence with Riccardo Teresi of SunnyTuscany and you will get a true feel for this wonderful city.

Villani is a classy hotel in the centre of Florence, just 100m away from Piazza del Duomo. Its 360 degrees panoramic terrace all over Florence is completely breathtaking. Villani's owners will gently help you enjoying your little break in Florence.
I highly recommend to experience this kind of magic..

Basic but clean, comfortable, friendly and extremely well located.
Could not fault the room, staff or location. Walking distance from everything and very clean. The Staff couldn't have been more helpful. You want to experience Florence, not live in a Hotel room??? This is the one.

This Hotel Villani is so amazing for the views alone....We had Romm 41, a wonderful view of the Duomo and the tower...almost like you could reach out and touch it. Erminio is such a well spoken man who will tell you as it really is in Florence. One of our fondest memories of the trip was sitting on the rooftop of the Villani one night drinking wine while Erminio played poker with two of his chef friends! This is a small gem of a place. The price was reasonable and the room clean. We would stay there again, no place else. It's central to everything. He also booked the Uffizi and the Accademia for us.
Mille Graci Erminio!

I have stayed at the Villani many times in the past, and it has never changed: a simple, very clean, basic little hotel on the 4th floor of a building in the most fantastic location in Florence: from the breakfast room you can almost touch the Campanile and the Duomo.Despite being in the center, you hear no noise and it seems like it should be the site of a movie, like "Room with a View".
The rooms are very simple, with TV, safe,phone, decent lighting, and small bathrooms,hairdryer. Some of the rooms have showers that need stepping into over a ledge, which may be difficult for some visitors. Others sometimes have the water escape onto the floor, but I have found that this can be corrected by simply bringing a throw away rag with me (which I always have in my suitcase anyway, because you never know which hotel you might need it in). The breakfast is simple: just juice, rolls/fette biscottate/croissant, butter and jam and a hot drink. Remember, this is a 2 star hotel. But there are two features which make it far more special. The first is the absolutely breathtaking roof garden, where one can sit and just drink in the entire view over Florence, which is too beautiful for words. The second are the owners, Erminio and Michele Villani, who are true gems. Always there, always available, always helpful, always making you feel totally at home. In fact, the Villani feels less like a hotel than a bunch of rooms in someone's apartment. If it is any kind of luxury you are looking for, this is not the place. If you want simple, good value for money and also the benefit of getting to know two extraordinary Florentines who will always make you feel welcome and give you the best recommendations possible for anything you may need, this is the place to stay.
