The hotel is really nowhere and you need a car to go there.It is far from the city.There is a small restaurant across the street with very good cuisine.Nice and charming people.It is very quiet..We slept wonderful.We had wide terrace which is like your own backyard.Very relaxing.In the lobby they have great natural spa products.

Booked this hotel but had to cancel and change to another hotel in central Florence. This was largely due to the fact that the advertised free shuttle bus service no longer exists. Also looking at the bus timetables for Florence - Prato - Calenzano there are very few buses that serve the hotel during the day and at night time the only proposed option was a taxi (30 Euros) or car hire. I have read reviews elsewhere that say it can be really difficult finding a parking space in Florence and given that it would have cost more than our hotel booking to hire a car it seemed the Meridiana Country hotel was something of a false economy!! Also it is quite a distance from the centre... There are reasonably priced hotels in central Florence -- just shop about first :-) Hope this helps x

No parking available when we arrived due to a function. When I said that one of the main reasons for choosing the hotel was parking, told "tough" We were prommised a call to our room when - if - a space became free, the call never happened. I kept going out to check every hour or so, and when I found a free space my wife guarded it it while I went to fetch the car.
Wanted to eat in the hotel bistro, told "No, reserved for a function tonight" we could use the restaurant over the road, but it was raining that night and we'd have had to cross a busy road with massive puddles everywhere. We went without.
Not having spoken to the kids for a while, we wanted the internet for 'skype' £13 to use it and there were no instructions in the room, took ages to figure it out - including another trip to the front desk (they wouldn't answer the telephone) for what turned out to be wrong information!. The shower cubicle was possibly the smallest I've ever seen, and the bed was so hard that neither of us was able to sleep - and we like a hard bed!
Breakfast was just about OK, nice freshly squeezed fruit juice.
Glad to see the back of this place. Four star??? you must be joking!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the room was excellent. We would suggest a car if holidaying but a bus is available almost at the door for Florence. The restaurant was good, but exceptional when Marco was attending to customers. The only negative aspect was the ant invasion. Seasonal we think.

Modern-style hotel, newly refurbished with fantastic bathroom (heated mirror over the sink which never mists over) and clean rooms (basic furniture). Corridors are "open" to outside so more ideal for the summer season. Ok breakfast and helpful staff.

This was a great hotel, especially for the price. The bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean, new, and modern. We had a great view of the hills from our room and the staff was helpful directing us to train stations, stores, restaurants, etc.

If you have a car, it's a great location to explore Tuscany and the Mediterranean is not even that far away (must see: PortoVenere). There is also a large shopping center in Calenzano which proved to be a real blessing because we were able to get a Garmin unit plus plenty of other food and supplies.

The Hotel Restaurant (across the street) was good, but expensive. Down the street 200 meters is another fine choice - similar quality, but much lower prices.

Breakfast was good but not great. Overall though, it was a great stay.
