"A little piece of heaven in the Tuscan mountains"
Beautiful, isolated rurale setting in the Tuscan hills. Had a 3 night stay and enjoyed every evening here post travelling the nearby highlights. Food was excellent (although portions were large!) and enjoyed sampling the local wine.
Staff were very helpful and gave great advice for local trips. There isn't much locally, so if you need extras, it's a 5 minute car ride into Borgo San Lorenzo. If we had more time, we would have taken the opportunity to have enjoy the hotel facilities. We were fortunate to get a free room upgrade, although both rooms were of an excellent standard.
Room was really clean and modern.
The staff were all really nice and were happy to give us a lift to Signa station every day (it's about a 20 minute walk). The train ride into Florence from Signa took about 15 minutes and cost €2.50 each way. It is possible to go on day trips to Pisa, Lucca and Sienna from the hotel.
Breakfast was really nice - cold meats, cheese, croissants, cakes - and the staff would squeeze oranges by hand to make the nicest orange juice ever.
Would definitely return to and recommend the Meridiana Country Hotel. Loris Frascarelli and his staff were wonderful and could not do enough for us during our stay. Upon our arrival, Loris gave us a choice of rooms; we obviously took the one with the better view. The Meridiana is quaint, accommodating, clean, in a beautiful location and close to a fantastic local restaurant they recommended just down the road (Gennaro); you could actually walk there.
The location was excellent - 5 minutes from the train station. Staff was helpful and we had a wonderful stay. We had a family of 5 and the room worked great. Also the breakfast was really good. Only minor drawback was the internet service was slow/not reliable.
This hotel is perfectly situated 20 mins from Florence meaning it is very easy to use as a base for sightseeing as the train system is great and cheap (2.50 euros into Florence) . Good breakfast selection, Bed was soooo comfy we looked forward to getting in every night!. Shower room was very small but we ere able to use without problem, we didn't come away to spend all our time in room. Shame there were no English speaking TV channels but not end of world. Good fridge in room. Lovely restaurant just over the road (Enrichos) which was very reasonably priced, worth noting Tuesday is there 'closed' night as we didn't know this but managed to get sandwiches from snack machine at Signa train station. Also bar over the road which was nice although opened and closed at odd times Hotel so easy to find - right outside train station, but was surprisingly quiet. Staff extremely helpful printing out timetables and helping organise day out and breakfast bag as were had to leave before breakfast. Would highly recommend this hotel, so reasonably priced and fab location.
