Dino Hotel
Ranked #4 of 11 Hotels in Fiesole
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Stayed there twice in last six months for a total of 17 days. Staff is incredibly helpful.
Rooms a little dated but hotel service and food in restaurant are both EXCELLENT!
Great views and a 18 minutes to center of Florence by car and train. (6 minute drive to station and a 12 minute train ride).

Have stayed at Villa San Michele (one 1200 Euro per night) and Dino's service is just as good.

Room Tip: Rooms over front entrance tend to be noisy.

Reviewed 18 July 2012

The family who run this hotel are fun and friendly. We received a really warm welcome, despite our poor Italian and their basic English.
We were staying with out 18 month old son who runs, shouts and doesn't like sitting down to eat. This didn't phase the staff, who took it in turns to pick him up and put him in his high chair, skip with him, let him help sweep leaves up and tickle him.
They put the milk we bought in their fridge which was rarely used as they insisted on bringing him frothed milk or cold milk with a straw.
Restaurant is open from 19.00 and dinner is a true Italian lengthy affair. A simple meat-lovers menu, with only one vegetarian choice as a main (I loved eating it three nights in a row though, spicy pasta). Starters were bruschetta and meat selections. On one night, we stayed up drinking in the outside restaurant until after midnight and kept us full with cheese slabs and recommendations of local wines.
Our rooms were basic but more than fine. Cleaned immaculately and soft towels and a TV, which we didn't turn on. All three rooms we had for our group had balconies.
The view over Florence is beautiful and the car park (across the road from the hotel) has benches which you can sit at and over look in the evening sun.
The hotel is situated about 30 minutes from Mugello circuit and traffic was not a problem each day.
Grandma Dino who sits on the veranda, speaks no Italian but can bewitch any child with her animated face and gesticulating. Her chatter and smiles had our son captivated and encouraged him to babble with her.
We have such a lovely warm feeling following our stay, we'd love to go back and have a chuckle with the waiters again and shake hands with the man on reception who insisted we each took a bottle of wine with us on departure.

Room Tip: Ask for a view over Florence.

Rooms dated but functional; showers tiny. Wifi flakey. Breakfast blah. But it's a decent place to sleep in a good location. And dinner was pretty good. Don't avoid it if you're in the area, but don't seek it if you have other options that look good.
