“Splendid location and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Stayed here on a short break with my family and we were all delighted with it. Rooms were not huge, but stylishly furnished and bathroom modern. Staff were all extremely courteous and helpful. We felt like they wanted us to stay and hoped we would return - I hope we do too,

Getting into Florence by bus is very easy and cheap, but I noticed that traffic could be heavy in the mornings so allow for that if you are in a hurry. It is a bit of a walk up the hill to the centre of Fiesole but you could take the bus if needed.

Biggest surprise was the restaurant which although rather small gave us a high quality meal and my kids willl not forget the size of the tagliata for a while. Superb view of Florence too that you can also enjoy at breakfast.

Highly recommended.

I have been staying in this hotel since the year 2000 almmost every year and the quality has always improved but the friendliness of the staff has always been there. Many of the rooms have wonderfully breathtaking view of Florence from the top. It is just 10 minutes from the city city by taxi, if there is not traffic jam in the city center. I think this hotel offers a wonderful price/quality ratio and I have always been happy to stay there. The only problem with this hotel is that they neither have a door man to help you out to carry your luggages nor a bell button that you can ring from the parking lot to ask for help. All you can do is to phone them from your mobile when you are in the parking lot to ask for help if you need assistance for carrying of your luggages and someone from the reception comes down to help.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. If you have heavy luggages to be carried from the parking lot please ca...

I recently spent three nights at the Villa Fiesole whilst on a business trip with little time to relax in the surroundings.

There is a bit of a hike up to reception from the road and the car park and when our small group arrived porterage was a slight issue but was eventually sorted out. The stairs can be quite slippery.

The hotel is generally clean and tidy and perhaps a little dated, some rooms are in the main block above reception, some in the courtyard and some in the older house. My room (201) was by itself with a small terrace overlooking the swimming pool (although the weather was not suitable to use the facility).

The room was a large double with a walk in cupboard and large bathroom with an excellent circular bath. The furniture was fairly simple but comfortable but one issue was that the room always smelt of damp on entering. I did not investigate this further and it did not cause me a problem but it might be distracting for some.

The breakfast room is small, service quite slow and the selection limited but adequate.

Staff were generally friendly and the front desk was helpful when needed.

Room Tip: Room 201 is large and overlooks the swimming pool with its own terrace and larger than many

Dear Guest,

thank you so much for staying with us ; we are happy to hear you had a globally good one with us.
I'm actually a bit surprised to hear the hotel being a little dated since our property updates and proceeds with manteinance every February , during the closing period.
Anyway the remark is personal and we obviously respect it trying to find every part of the business or facility which can be improved , so thank you very much.
Our very best regards

We loved this hotel and splurged to have rooms on the courtyard with our own porch. In the evening we could sit and look over the lights of Florence with a glass of wine. This hotel had the best breakfast buffet on our two week vacation. Enjoy your breakfast on the terrace which is just beautiful. The rooms were clean, well appointed and the AC worked well. If you like to sleep in you will be a bit upset with the sound of chairs being moved on the roof-top terrace where breakfast is served above the courtyard rooms. As we were up and at it there was no issue. The front desk staff was very helpful with tours, taxis and whatever you needed. They also sell bus tickets. The bus in to Florence is about every 20 mins and goes direct to San Marco square near "David". Trip time is about 15 mins and the bus is rarely crowded. We don't like to go back to the same place twice but we would consider staying at this property again.

We just spent a week there the first week in October. It was a very nice hotel. We got the room with the terrace view. Great view at all times of day. Terrace was very big, and very sunny. Only thing was that it is directly over the road, and can be very loud. It seemed that the other end of the hotel near the pool was much quieter. The heated pool was great. Augusto at the front desk was very helpful. Ate both breakfast and dinner at the hotel often. Very nice staff. Bus stop to Florence out front. Fiesole town up the hill is very cute, and had vendors in square out on sunday.

We stayed here during the Worlds Cycling Championships. The room was large and clean, breakfast was very good and the location was convenient to the bus. The views were beautiful and perfect for viewing the road race. The staff was especially helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

The location is just out of florence up the hill looking over the city, away from the city noise. Views are outstanding and breakfast great.
THEIR Swimming pool was wonderful way to cool down after a day sightseeing. Highly recommend the hotel.
Bus at gate that goes into city every 20 mins, would not advise driving in florence.
