We stayed here for a long weekend visit to Florence. Although this is a short bus ride from Florence itself, it was lovely to stay out of the city and in the quiet, freshness of the mountains.
It is a 1.5km walk to Fiesole or a bus ride (only runs every couple of hours) where there is a bus every 20 mins to San Marco in the centre of Florence.
The hotel itself is quite basic with a continental breakfast, very comfy beds and a small shower room. The views are stunning though and our room overlooked Florence itself.
For the price, this was perfect for us as a young couple (early 30's) but not recommended if you don't fancy a walk to get anywhere.
Overall, we were really pleased with the hotel, the location was great for us as we enjoyed the peace of the countryside and it was well within price reason for Italy.
