Escape the stress of florence
Fantastic pool, great staff, free shuttle downtown. incredible views of florence
The building looked beautiful, and it was close to the Tuscan country side. Staff was very helpful and the food was really good.
There isn't really much negative things to say here, however I would improve the shuttle service to different locations, ex the Terminal. Also, TV has to have more English channels , that helps relax after a long day of walking.
Hotel is nice / restaurant Is expensive!!!
the old world feel in the rooms.
The interior in the public spaces could use some serious attention! It feels cheap and not on the level of a genuine 5 star hotel. Overall needs tasteful direction and overhaul. Restaurant bill for 2 was almost 90 euros for 2 glasses of wine, 2 pastas, and 1 dessert. Each glass of house wine they offered me was 16 euros each. I have dined at many restaurants in Italy ranging from michelin star to amazing local family restaurants therefore I am quite confident to say this was expensive for what is was. The food was standard for what you can expect in any decent Italian kitchen however you can head down the road to find many nicer restaurants that will be over half the price for the same thing. Moreover the interior of the restaurant feels like a cheap Chinese restaurant with an interior inspired by Versace in the 90's.
Spent two nights there in November 2014. Excellent service, room, and amenities. Would definitely return. I can say without equivocation that I would return. Fabulous views of Florence! Tea served in the salon each afternoon. Gorgeous linens. Attentive service. This is a my hotel when I return to Florence!!
I cannot accept that the overnight price of euros299.00does not include breakast! A fabulous location but I have stayed in better hotels before for a lot less!
The air conditioning in the annexe was locked on 25.5c and could not be reduced.the room was like a sauna.we stayed at the hotel to attend a wedding on site.the dinner service was poor-at one stage the cutlery ran out.they should be used to mass catering!take care concerning mosquitoes.these seem to be endemic in florence and 5 stars do not stop you from getting bitten.we have come home with numerous bites!
The location is surely impressive and the staff extremely super nice and helpfull. the free shuttle service is absolutely fantastic!
There are a few things that I was not happy about: the bed mattress was old and had a big hole in the middle that made our sleep extremely uncomfortable. they didn't even have a selection of pillows, but only one standard, that , in a hotel room that costs 299 euros per night is not acceptable. the breakfast was totally not worthed 25 euros per person ( they should really have it included in the price). For how perfect is a view , and we all know how important is a room with a view in Florence, they are located next to a camping ground, and in the middle of the night and early in the morning, the camping ground management was calling people with megaphones to move their cars.... ad was utterly annoying and loud!
very friendly staff and very nice restaurant. One of our best meals in Florence. Thanks for the wonderfully chilled bottle of Champagne in our room, on arrival, was a wonderful touch! We will stay there again.
Shuttle services needs to be extended in hours and also drop folks in the middle of the town as opposed to the bridge.
The views were stunning and superb facilities. Gourmet dining with elegant surroundings.
nothing to complain about
The whole stay was excellent. Service top class, views amazing, room outstanding, roof terrace unbeatable in Florence.
I will go back and recommend others to stay whenever in Florence.
the feeling of luxury, calm, and amazing view over the whold of Florence. The staff were considerate, very helpful , quite perfect.
the 25 euros per breakfast for one person is too expensive I think.
Nothing specific stood out
The service is erratic and at times poor The cleanliness of the crockery (dried sugar on a coffee spoon) and the level of crockery (cracked cup) is not on par with its star rating The rooms already look like they need redecorating and 'romantic room' is in fact a very small room with a limited view of the grounds and Florence. Drinks and meals were prohibitively costly in the hotel We were woken at night by inconsiderate guests arriving late and by the sound of the luggage trollies. The noise was dealt with quickly by the concierge, but you also get noise from a neighbouring campsite (tannoy announcements) which can be quite disconcerting!
I love that hotel, everything was perfect!
The setting and high quality of the hotel and the courtesy of its staff
Drink prices in the bar were extremely and unjustifiably high. - Internet use in the room which was provided was very difficult.
