Il Salviatino in Fiesole, Florence, Italy
A stunning and perfectly hand restored 15th century villa that lies proudly on the hillside of Fiesole, with inspirational views of Florence and the rolling Tuscan landscape. A magical place, where our obsession for the perfect service and experience blends with the grandeur of the setting. A truly unique experience, a way to enjoy and be a part of both Florence and Tuscany that cannot be imitated.
Discover the sumptuous comfort of our suites and rooms. Each individually decorated, respecting the many particularities of the villa and its gardens, all suites and rooms are an elegant blend of local artisanship and the latest technologies. A place where luxury has no limit, a stay here is beyond every imagination. We want our Kitchen to be as tied to its territory and to the seasons as possible. At Il Salviatino, we are quite fortunate to be surrounded by a luxuriant park, so we have decided to devote a portion – actually what was once the historic orchard – to an organic vegetable garden, so that we may offer vegetables, fruit and aromatic herbs that are truly ‘from producer to consumer’! We are already working on it and we should have the first ‘fruits of our labors’ soon! Immersed amongst the rolling hills adjacent to the Villa, one enters a truly magical world at our Spa and Pool area. The Spa Il Salviatino, unites Il Salviatino’s idyllic setting and renowned service with the ancestral knowledge and delicate aroma’s of Dr Vranjes, one of Florence’s most exclusive perfume houses. From the 15th of April to the 3rd of October you will also be able to enjoy our pools. Immersed in the green hills, with stunning and relaxing views, you will find it hard to believe you are lying just 15 minutes away from the hustle & bustle of down town Florence.

Reviews for Il Salviatino
From start to finish, the experience at Il Salviatino was exemplary. From the kind welcome, to the room (and all the amenities that came therein), pool, breakfast and so on, there is almost no fault with a place like this. A perfect place to either relax, or use as a base to Florence (a courtesy shuttle is provided back and forth), I couldn't recommend anything greater in Tuscany, let alone Florence. Special thanks to Angelo and Carolina for their hospitality and kindness - humbling and touching.
I knew of a friend of a friend who stayed at Il Salviatino and didn't want to leave it to go visit Florence, because she liked it so much. My impression was the opposite. In early September, you could walk around the property but you couldn't see that much on the grounds--other than views of the Duomo and other buildings down the hill in Firenze (Florence). There was a cold water pool. But it took some major navigation and walking to find, if you walked down from the main building. I would be spending more time to sightsee in Florence, with the hotel as a refuge at the end of the day. The staff was friendly and helpful. Their English was excellent. My wife and I, and our party of 6 other relatives, enjoyed eating on the outside patio. One evening, the wind was blowing strongly while we were eating dinner. The servers and staff helped us move into the indoor library so that we could finish our meal. The breakfast buffet was extensive and very good. You could eat in the library (nice library!). Our room (number 20) was comfortable. There were 2 closets, with shelves in one closet. There was limited counter space in the bathroom for toiletries. The first night, the air conditioning was not working in the room. The staff was able to provide a fan to use. The air conditioning was fixed the following day. We stayed for 2 nights.

It was my partners first trip to Florence and so i wanted a real taste of elegant five star service and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and it felt like stepping into a ' Henry James' novel. We have booked a return visit next year! PS the only minor critique was that the 'gym' certainly needs an upgrade

We returned back to Il Salviatino after a very visit a couple of years back. The hotel, the grounds , still stunning. The hotel had changed owners since the last time and a few changes had occurred like the library and the spa location. Our room was an upgrade and it was clean and beautiful. The living room was a solarium so it became quite warm during the day but he bedroom and bathroom were modern and clean. I would suggest placing a fridge in the room though as constant calls for ice was a nag. The breakfast although good was not as sumptuous as our first stay. The only downside to the roomâ€”maybe some low voltage lighting in the living room- being in such a large glass room was disconcerting especially late night. The staff was great and I love the location as it away from the crowds of the center. Iâ€™d stay there again in a heartbeat. .

I've been to many 5 star hotels. I have comparison material and Il Salviatino does not make the cut. I struggled with the rating because the hotel has a couple of excellent features, which I will list first: - The hotel is an old palazzo which gives it a lot of charm. There are beautiful and fragrant flower arrangements all through the hotel. - Excellent breakfast served in the library when it's too cold to be outside and served on the terrace when the weather is good. Both locations are very beautiful, especially the outside - the view is simply stunning. Two things about the library: the seats are too low to the point it's really uncomfortable and their knives need a good sharpening. Dinner was expensive and overrated and after the first night we ate in town. - Very kind and helpful personnel - they do try to please their customers. - A free shuttle to the center of town (on the piazza del duomo) that runs every hour and takes 20 minutes. It runs until 8pm and I wish it ran longer so you can have dinner in town and still return with the shuttle. Taxis cost about Euro 25. - The hotel is close to the airport - about 30 minutes in traffic. Now for the bad: - I had arranged for a hotel pick-up from the airport for Euro 80 (double the fare of a normal taxi). The driver didn't turn up because it had rained and he assumed without checking that all planes would be delayed. Ours was on time. We had to wait for the driver to arrive because the line for normal taxis was hideously long. - On arrival we were given an upgrade to our room, which sounded promising. Our room (room number 1) was on the ground floor and had one window that looked into a hedge that hid the parking lot. It also had 30ft ceilings, which was impressive but not cozy. Bar one painting on the wall, the room was bare of any furnishings or decorations, which looked spartan and uninviting. The lighting in this cavern was poor and the set of lighting buttons was incomprehensible. The room had virtually no closet space, no mini-fridge and a bathroom with a single sink and NO BATH, only a small shower. It had another shower for the handicapped which looked like a cement locker room shower and had a handheld shower head that could not be adjusted to a person standing up. Clearly the handicapped don't deserve any frills. - Cleanliness in the room was definitely average at best and the handicapped shower room was not serviced at all (although I was clearly using it, even though I am not handicapped). As a rule, sheets were changed every 3 days, which is not enough for a 5 star hotel. Shampoo/soap samples were not replaced when clearly needed. Towels were not replaced when needed. Overall a lack of attention not worthy of 5 stars. - Our tv broke down 2 times in the week we stayed there. The selection of movies was pathetic. - NO concierge service - the hotel staff can call you a car service or print out a train timetable but they cannot provide you with ideas or an itinerary. Again, not 5 star service. - The hotel is not the right venue for the elderly, the handicapped or those who have trouble walking up and down stairs. Throughout the hotel there are high and low steps, small step-ups and they have large area rugs with folds or ripples in them - a nightmare for someone afraid to trip up. - the hotel pool looks as nice as in the pictures but what they don't show is that it is set away from the hotel by about 50-100 meters, steeply downhill! You have to walk down crumbling stone steps to get there and the hill incline is steep. It's dangerous. It's also hard to get back up to the hotel. - Based on the nice online photos of the surrounding area I had imagined going for walks in the neighborhood/countryside. This is probably my bad for not doing more research but there is no walking in the neighborhood. There is a steeply uphill road that goes to Fiesole and that's it. You are still in the city. Overall I was disappointed with this hotel.
