    Impressive Interiour Design, nice location

    The host family was terribly unfriendly. It was a big fight just to get some hot water for someone laying ill in bed. It looks they don't like guests but need the money... The Philippine girl doing the whole work was ok. We would never even think of going there again.

    Easy to Florence by bus

    We had 2 wait outside for 20mins until someone came to let us in. We had no hot water and no staff were around to tell.

    The staff

    Poor breakfast, too far from the centre, we spent a fortune on bus tickets and taxis. The villa is dark and would benefit from a total refurbishment.

  • Older travelers

    Beautiful style of house in idyllic grounds. The house is full of art works and luxuriant furnishings. A real sense of being in the country whilst only 15 minutes from Florence centre. Our room was large and charmingly decorated in an old fashioned way.

    Lack of air conditioning in our room made sleeping difficult on hot nights, in spite of being advertised as having air conditioning. We weren't given information about available facilities at the house ie that we get a cup of tea or coffee after hours.

    Their receptionist (from Philippine) was not kind and not polite .At one point the man the receptionist call the boss (Italian) shouted at the children. If you ask something they were lazy to do it .They give us one room that does not lock .They have not change the towels and the bed sheets for the three days we were there. Their breakfast is no good and all cold.

    The location of the hotel and the purpose it served for 6 travelers to stay together.

    The staff seemed irritated by our need for adjustment of our hot water each morning. The first 2 mornings; we had no hot water and a hot water tank that was leaking. Staff was not around to help guide/answer questions any time other than morning at breakfast time.

    Brekfast and surranding.

    The shower was dirty. We have found old soap in the edge of shower. Additionally we have watched the culture of the fungi of the shower wall.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel was very difficult to find, was not in Fiesole and did not 'overlook Florence'. No evening meals served and it was necessary to bus into Florence to get a meal!! To get to Fiesole one has to bus into Florence and then out again and obviously do the reverse to regain the hotel!!

  • Couple

    Breakfast is ok

    Hotel is very bad. Hard to find place. We wondered for hours searching for it. Only after they called us we found it because at night it is hidden in the wall. Hotel looks like a creepy mansion. When we arrived they put us in a basement like room with 2 floors but very uncosy and bad smell and huge spiders all over the walls. The furniture is in bad taste and bedroom has bad ventilation even when window is open.
