“Grand, friendly hotel”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

The hotel is a grand old building with large rooms and high ceilings, set in large gardens and therefore peaceful. Fittings (eg in the bathroom) were all modern and the whole place was spotlessly clean. It is family run and everyone was friendly and helpful even though their English was limited and our Italian is non-existent. There's a useful collection of dictionaries on reception!

We didn't have the half board option as there was only one menu choice. Breakfast was basic but adequate (tea, coffee, fresh rolls, jam, cake). However we paid a very reasonable price for the room and thought it was good value for money overall.

Bivigliano is a quiet place with just one other hotel/restaurant (closed in April when we were there) and a pizzeria just outside the village which we ate at and were happy with.

My daughter & I stayed here in March/April 2013, and both the hotel and the surrounding scenery are beautiful. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. Everything worked perfectly (tv, shower, lights,...). The host speaks English well and was incredibly helpful in getting us to and around Florence, Pisa, and Cinque Terre.

If you have a car, this is only 15-20 minutes from historic Florence (Firenze), 1:20 minutes from Pisa, and about 2 hours from Cinque Terre, and there's an excellent restaurant just a couple of minutes from the hotel.

We stayed in a 4-star hotel in Rome and a 3-star hotel in Assisi, and Giotto Park Hotel was far and away our favorite in all 3 categories: room size, comfort, and beauty. As we drove up the winding road to get there, we actually pulled over to take pictures of the scenery. it's that pretty.

My only warning would be: if you drive there, use a GPS or get detailed instructions. It's very easy to get to once you know how to get there, but using directions I got on Google Maps, we had to stop about 5 times to get help. Find Bolognese road in Florence and head north, and you should be able to find the hotel fairly easily.

My husband and I stayed here during MotoGP Mugello 2012. The place is lovely and quiet. The hotel offers ample parking. The food is very good and quite a bargain. The proprietors Camillo and Claudia were so accommodating, helpful and pleasant. There's a small grocery, a pharmacy and a fruit store right across the street. We hiked up to Mont Senario (allow half a day: the walk up from Giotto Park is about an hour) and it was extraordinary.

We had one or two mosquitoes in our room during the five days, but this seems to happen to me everywhere :)

A great restaurant down in Vaglia is Trattoria Pizzeria Ballini.

Enjoy your stay!!

bivigliano is a charming village 16 Km from Florence, the road is one of the best part as you dive into beautiful green hills, make sure you drive with windows wide open so you can enjoy birdsong, slowly driving through this little piece of heaven, Giotto Hotel is a pretty old house with a large park, high ceiling rooms and extremely nice owners , the design of the house was originally kept and for those who love the charm of old houses, Giotto park Hotel is the place to stay near Florence.
rooms are clean, comfortable, but in hot summer days, the lack of Air conditioning and fans can be a drawback, however the summer evenings can be delicious, and sitting in the park under large trees and old stone everywhere is exactly what you need after a long day, later at night step deeper into the dark corners of the park, you will enjoy a magical show of fireflies all around ...

Room Tip: take rooms in the main building the upgrade is a matter of 20 euro per room per night but rooms and...

I loved everything about Giotto Park Hotel! The owner and his Mom are extremely charming and take great care of their guests!

The food was some of the best food I had in Italy and at only 15 euros you get a 4 course delicious meal in the dining room and wine and bread! Go to dinner very hungry!

The area around Gitto Park is lovely, it's the perfect Tuscan getaway that is easily accessible to Florence via bus or taxi and it's about an hour away via bus. Take the blue bus from S.M Novella and there will be one change in a small town before Bivilgiano. I also enjoyed hiking to the Convent about five miles away, it's a lovely hike and great scenery along the way and at the top! They also sell snacks at the convent which was a great surprise!

Don't stay here if you are wanting a busy, lively town with lots of bars and restaurants to walk to stay here if you want some peace and quiet in a wonderful quaint Tuscan town! Great place!
