“Great Villa Style Hotel in Florence”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We had a Junior Suite in this Tuscan villa style hotel. The room was clean, big bathroom and a very convenient and big bed. The breakfast buffet offered nearly everything what a normal person needs in the morning. We enjoyed breakfast every morning at the fantastic terrace which offers a wonderful view over Florence and the country side.
On some days we walked to the center of Florence where you can reach e.g. the Ponte Vecchio in 20-25 minutes. Alternatively you can also take your car or a taxi, but we preferred walking. We also spent quality time at the pool which is also very nice. You can have drinks and snacks at the pool. The only negative comment is that the water of the pool was a bit too warm with around 26-28 degrees.
The staff in the hotel was also very friendly and therefore we can definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Junior Suite was a good choice.

Stayed here three nights. It is a lovely hotel. Daniela helped us arrange our transportation from the airport to the hotel. She was wonderful to work with. We even got dinner our first night in celebration of our Anniversary and retirement. Our room was on the first floor with a little outdoor space overlooking Florence and the Tuscan hills. Spent one afternoon enjoying the delightful pool. The breakfast buffet was absolutely wonderful. Great food and great presentation.

We stayed at the hotel in early Aug and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. As a family of 5 we required two rooms and the hotel was able to provide adjacent rooms. The rooms were large and well appointed and we all slept well.

The pool and restaurant areas provided fantastic views of Florence and the Tuscan country side. Eating breakfast overlooking the city or taking a break poolside from the 35 C weather was a fantastic addition to our day. The breakfast buffet was always great with lots of fresh fruit and other selections to interest all of us.

Being in the hills getting to and from the hotel took a bit of time but was enjoyable traveling through the narrow streets. Taxis to the downtown area are not that expensive and usually quick to arrive. We used taxis daily and found this took a lot of stress out of driving ourself and finding limited parking.

Overall an enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to book this hotel again.

Dear Guest,
thanks for your wonderful review and such amazing words shared on TripAdvisor.
Our property is just 5 minutes by taxi from the city center, usually the cost is approximately € 10 per way.
Villa Tolomei is for sure the perfect place to relax by the pool after spending a day downtown especially in summer when it is very hot.
We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Tolomei and really hope to welcome you back in the near future.

I just got back from a four night stay at Villa Tolomei and I can't say enough great things about this hotel and resort! The service was AMAZING, I've never received such great service before from the staff. The grounds were gorgeous, the view from the pool and restaurant are to die for! It's just far enough away from the main center of Florence, but only about a 10 euro taxi ride away from the action. I definitely will stay here again!

I've just returned from Florence and cannot recommend Villa Tolomei highly enough. The buildings have been renovated beautifully and tastefully to a very high standard and the surrounding views are breath taking. It is far enough outside the city centre to be away from the noise and crowds, set in beautiful hill sides with stunning views. It is a 20 minute stroll down the hill to the centre of Florence and 10 euros in a cab back if you don't feel like tackling the climb. Don't be put off by the villa's distance outside the city centre, it is a blessing to get back to the peace and tranquility to either have a drink on the terrace admiring the views or dipping in the pool which is a sun trap.The staff were so helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and they booked all our museum tickets for us (well worth the 4 euro booking fee to avoid hours of queuing) and they were happy to find out train and bus details for us too. They were always around to answer our questions and never hurried us or were over intrusive. Villa Tolomei is a gem and brilliant find - I will definitely be returning and encourage anyone looking for a spot of luxury in Tuscany to stay here.

An unplanned stay turned into a wonderful surprise. I had other commitments in the area so only got to peek at parts of the property...I'll be back for the full experience of other travelers. The guest room was top of the line, a wonderful mix of old and new. I was very comfortable and could really relax here after a busy day. I look forward to returning in the near future to explore the pool, spa and dining.

A wonderful view to start each day well, with a fab pool! The suite was nice, but unfortunately over the 4 nights we were there, the internet didnt work one day in our room which was a shame as we were trying to plan our days out, and the communications between the staff seemed to go a miss, so we had to keep following up with the morning and night concierge over bookings, room changes etc, but we are sure having just opened, once the villa works through its teething issues this will be the perfect stay!
