Chose this hotel as it was on good bus route into city but away from city noise at night. Brilliant choice! Staff excellent and very good choice at breakfast. Great view from our room overlooking the city ( back of hotel). No dinner service in the evening but great restaurant 100 yards down the road with wonderful views across the valley. So good that we ate there three times in the week.
One minor blip was that one evening we were unable to use the residents' lounge for a quiet drink after a hectic day as a small family 'get together' was taking place there. However we were given a complimentary drink in the lobby.
One other thing--no tea/coffee making facility in your room. Perhaps that's normal in Italy--I don't know.
The hotel is magnificent. Beautiful grounds, super room. It felt like we were guests in a palace. Best of all the service was supreme. Everyone we encountered could not have been more eager to be of help--the entire staff made us feel very special.

Sangaggio was a wonderful welcome to Florence. The owners are friendly and went out of their way with helping us with suggestions and bookings. The breakfast was delicious with a variety of cheeses and home-made deserts. It's half a mile to Porto Romana (cf. Inferno) and the walk through the Boboli Gardens was a nice start to our tour followed by cappuccinos at the Palazzo Pitti. There is a close bus stop which quickly takes you to the main train-and-bus station; however, each day we walked into Florence, getting up early in the morning to enjoy the fresh air and crossing the Arno on the decorative Ponte Vecchio. Our room window looked toward the city but we were too far away to be disturbed by the noise. Breakfast was either inside or outside on a quiet porch. We spent a few nights outside just reading and watching the fireflies.
