Well reading the previous half a dozen or so reviews, I'm left wondering if they're reviewing the same hotel my husband and I stayed at? The location is about a half hour walk to Florence centre, albeit quite a steep walk but very pleasant through cobbled back lanes, a very nice reside area with ample lighting for returning at night. We had no problems whatsoever.
Our AC was perfect. The room was fabulous with high ceilings and plenty of room. The shutters were brilliant and it was lovely to have the room "ready " for your return at night.
Breakfast was very good. Meats, cheeses, breads, crackers, fresh fruit, yogurts, pastries, cakes.......the cappuccino was to die for. There was also scrambled egg and bacon. The staff were very helpful and the waiting staff at breakfast were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The lovely waitress got to know I enjoyed a second cappuccino and always had one waiting.
The pool was a delight. The views stunning.
All in all we made a very good choice with Villa Tolomei and will definitely recommend. If you want the city, then stay in the heart of Florence.......but if you want peace and tranquillity, a tad away from the buzz, choose this hotel.
