The hotel is about 20 minutes walk through a pleasant park or a short bus ride to the main tourist sites. We prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of the town centers. The hotel has all the main facilities apart from evening meals. Breakfast was mainly continental ( no English fry up here). Staff were very pleasant and efficient (i'm sure they changed the bed linen every day).
The only complaint was the noisy plumbing, you could hear every flush from both adjoining rooms.
Overall a very pleasant stay.
Arrived at the hotel and was upgraded once they found out it was my husbands 30th and our honeymoon!
View was stunning!
Couldn't recommend enough!
Perfect location, 10 minute walk tops to centre of Florence but free shuttle offered too.
I was very impressed with my first impression of this hotel, it is set off a main road with a long driveway leading to the hotel, the hotel is set amongst its own gardens. It almost felt like we weren't in the city. The hotel was well presented and very clean, we were very pleased with our room which was on the top floor, very large bed and all the other facilities you would expect for a nice hotel.
The only disadvantage to this hotel is it is a walk into town, but that didn't bother us and we walked it every day. It took us 15 mins to get to the centre from the hotel, little bit longer on the way back as the hotel was on a hill. However those who don't fancy walking buses pass the Main Street just outside the hotel very regularly and cost less than 2 euros.
Despite this I don't think we would have had a nicer hotel in the centre, especially for the cost.
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.
