Hotel Villa Fiesole in Fiesole, Italy
Looking out from your suite at the Hotel Villa Fiesole, atop an ancient Etruscan Hill in Florence, Italy, it is easy to see why this place was chosen to build empires. Surrounded by a forest as old as the hill, and bathed in the warm Italian sun, Villa Fiesole is a beautifully restored 19th century Villa featuring frescoed ceilings and thirty-two exquisitely decorated suites, discreetly updated with modern amenities. Breathtaking views of the domes and rooftops of Florence greet guests as they enjoy the extensive and peaceful gardens that surround the villa. Find a tranquil home at the very edge of this bustling center for art, culture, fashion and cuisine; it is indeed, your room with a view.
The many museums, palazzos, piazzas, and palaces of Florence are less than two miles away, and yet the noise and bustle of the city cannot be seen or felt; Villa Fiesole is completely peaceful from its hilltop vantage point. Providing a rare view of the city below, guests can enjoy the sights from a seat on the unique panoramic terrace. A refreshing swimming pool is a delightful way to cool off under the Tuscan sun, and the gardens provide a natural retreat from the streets of Florence. Enjoy superb Tuscan cuisine with your view when you dine al fresco at Villa Fiesole Restaurant, offering a menu that will make leaving your hilltop paradise even more difficult. The beauty of Florence, the warmth of Tuscany and the comfort of relaxed country living come together at Hotel Villa Fiesole.

Reviews for Hotel Villa Fiesole
The hotel has a very beautiful view up high on a hillside looking down at Florence. It also has a very nice terrace where you can eat, drink and just take in the view. This was our favorite part. However, you are stuck eating here if you don't have a car to get up the hill to Fiesole or down the hill to Florence. The street is too treacherous to walk on. Also, we had very poor service from this hotel. We had to leave early to catch our train to Cinque Terre, and confirmed with two front desk people the night before that a cab would be there to pick us up. We also asked for to-go breakfasts with coffee, which they said would be fine. When we got there in the morning no cab was called and no coffee was included with our very slim to-go breakfast. The front desk attendant was not even apologetic that they didn't set up a cab for us. We would not return.
Pleasant stay and nice rooms Friendly staff Steep driveway and quite a few steps - keep in mind from a luggage point of view Great location with bus stop right out the front Gorgeous views! Would definitely return.

Just returned from Villa Fiesole and was a relief to escape There is generally no public space to sit and relax other than the expensive restaurant The 'Deluxe' room we had contained no chair to sit in Our shower flooded the room twice and they seemed incapable of fixing the problem so I used a tool I had with me to repair it temporarily. I suggested it needed a more permanent solution but no one came to fix it They seemed not to care about anything other than over charging. Even when we were forced out of our room due to flooding they offered no repair service or compensation. The breakfast room is too cramped and hence stressful. The food is very boring with no cooked eggs and some of the materials not as fresh as they should be. The location is not good if you plan to use the bus as the No 7 is a poor service - always crowded

OK, the good bits! â€¢ Great location â€“ overlooking Florence and a short bus journey from the town centre â€¢ Friendly, helpful staff â€¢ Good restaurant, with wonderful views and good food â€¢ Despite what some reviews state, we found the breakfast quality and variety excellent. Everything was always fresh, so yes you might have to wait a few minutes for some fresh bacon or egg â€“ but quality and freshness is more important than speed. Choose from fresh fruit, fresh natural yogurt, cereals, breads, fruit juices, pastries, cakes, smoked salmon, good cheeses, ham, prosciutto, excellent coffee and teas, egg, bacon and much more - even complimentary sparkling wine. â€¢ Any easy walk or bus ride up the hill to the ancient and peaceful town of Fiesole for a break from Florence and its crowds. A few local and quality places to eat, a small Coop supermarket to buy cheese, prosciutto, wine or water (and lots more), a cute ice cream parlour, and a bar beside the town square with further views over Florence. â€¢ Wonderful frescos on the room ceilings. The not so good: â€¢ On arrival, the room we were allocated (119) was poor. A long power cable across the floor to drive the mini-bar. A broken shower head. More like a dungeon than a hotel room. â€¢ We immediately raised this with reception. They advised the hotel was full, however could move us the following day. They kept their word and moved us to a really nice room (115) with a huge stone balcony with table, chairs, umbrella â€“ again overlooking Florence. â€¢ However, this was slightly marred by me having to immediately repair the bathroom sink drain, and that the shower screen had a seal missing which meant a shower caused a flood. â€¢ The complimentary internet appears to block VPNs and also block many innocent web sites â€“ e.g. why block your mobile phone operator? Tips: â€¢ Do not be concerned about walking on the road to town. There is no sidewalk, however local drivers are used to this, and you will be safe. Otherwise take the bus (every 15 or 20 minutes). It is very short walk. â€¢ Our GPS systems could not find the address. If you have this problem, the hotel shares its entrance with the Belmond Villa St. Michelle (ultra-expensive and on most maps and GPS systems)
Stan C - Blandford Forum, United Kingdom
Overall we enjoyed our stay but our room was close to the main road which is noisy also we were by an entrance door so had people rather noisily walking in and out talking and banging the door late at night and early in the morning so not really the peaceful Fiesole stay we had imagined. Our deluxe room and bathroom were clean and very spacious. We had Dinner here on the first evening as there was a bike race so the main road was closed to Fiesole. We shared an antipasti starter as soon as we finished, it was whipped away and our mains served immediately then my pasta was undercooked so I sent it back and received no apology. For dessert three scoops of icecream is â‚¬9 which is frankly ridiculous. We would not recommend eating here there are much better restaurants in Fiesole. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly and reception can sell you bus tickets for the No.7 bus which easily takes you to Fiesole (few minutes) on the side of the road the hotel is on and to Florence(20mins) on the opposite side of the road get off in Piazza Marco to walk to all tourist areas of Florence. Definitely prebook all tickets to tourist attractions as it gets so busy and we missed out on some as we hadn't booked. The views from the hotel are stunning and the terrace is lovely to relax with a drink. We also received a complimentary drink our first evening which was a very nice surprise. The pool is very small really ideal just for a dip not for swimming but we didn't get to use it as the weather was not hot enough. Great location just outside Florence excellent base for exploring.
