“Dream Wedding”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We had our wedding here for 35 guests on May 17 and everything was perfect. The villa is more gorgeous in real life than the pictures suggest. Alina was amazing at coordinating the event, vendors, everything! Not only is the setting so beautiful the service was exceptional. I would not change a thing about our wedding or 4 night stay at the hotel. I would recommend the villa for anyone looking for a dream wedding :)

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the hotel. As everyone else comments the views are jaw dropping and stunning from the hotel terrace. We stayed in room 203 which was ok- a bit too dark for my taste( lots of dark red in the room)- it's a personal taste though. The room was also quite small and on balance not 5 star. That said it was very clean, lovely linens and complimentary soft drinks. It was also the lowest price band room - so I'm sure that the larger rooms would be much nicer. The real gem of this hotel is the staff- service is excellent, friendly and warm. They go out of their way to make recommendations and always have time for a chat. Keep hold of these people- they will keep people coming back to the hotel. I would definitely return.

If you love a view, you get it from every angle. The inconic Florence city scape will linger in your memory for a long time. If you can, choose a suite in the main building facing that view as they are excellent. While you are on the hill away from the main action, it is nice to return to a peaceful haven. There is a courteousy van to drop off and collect at certain times, a taxi back up the hill is also easy, particularly for dinner out.

Over the years we have stayed in several hotels in Florence including some of the „palaces“. Villa Vedetta is our favorite because of its discrete elegance, the superb view and the very friendly and efficient management and staff. Of course not all rooms are created equal but the reception does everything to give you the best room among those available on arrival, in our case a wonderful room with a fantastic view over Florence.
Breakfast buffet might appear smaller than in other hotels but hot dishes are prepared freshly to order which is much better than eggs remaining on the stoves for hours.
The hotel is not in the city center. The view over the city largely compensates for this. Also, after a day of sightseeing in the usually crowded city the distance is welcome. To relax there is a beautiful pool in the hotel garden. It’s an easy walk down hill of about 20 min to the center. There is a regular shuttle service if you’d rather skip the walk.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming hotel - chic, modern and perfect in every way. The breakfast was delicious, the location couldn't be faulted with fantastic views over Florence in a quiet location. The real stars of the show are the lovely staff, all of whom are delightful and helpful. We would love to return. This hotel has a truly home from home feel. Please go!
