Set in a beautiful and quiet location which I found to be most convenient to trip into Florence etc (bus right outside the hotel). All my needs were readily met and I loved the french doors opening on to a large balcony with stunning panoramic views across Tuscany and Florence. No hidden extras either which was good.
We stayed in Fiesole at the end af a three week trip in Tuscany and it was the perfect place to end our trip. Our balcony room had a spectacular view and was equipped with a compact kitchen that included a dishwasher & washing machine. The lodging is family run & everyone was friendly and helpful. Fiesole is a beautiful & charming town and we would love to return here.
The hotel is a very old building full of character with furnishings that match. It has a wonderful position on the hillside just below Fiesole with amazing views over Florence. Sitting on the terrace with a cold white wine in hand, looking down onto the dome of the Duomo and the towers and domes of the other large churches was only beaten by eating dinner out there as the sun set over the city. The dinner menu was very limited - two starters, no choice for the main course, a pie for pudding (or fresh fruit or cheese) - but the food was superb and everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. The hotel is family run and we were made really welcome. We had a country view room which was comfortable and cooled by a fan (very important as the day temperatures were nearly 40 degrees in Florence during our stay); the ensuite was small but the shower was spacious and the water hot. If we go back to Florence we will certainly stay here again; the city is easily accessible on the No 7 bus and you are well away from the all the hustle and bustle.
This hotel was very comfortable and the breakfast included was excellent with fresh coffee/espresso made to order. Getting a car up the narrow road to the hotel for loading and unloading baggage was challenging but not impossible. This is to be expected in any small Italian town.
The only little thing that was difficult was the tiny shower. My husband is 6'2" and 220#. He could barely fit in the shower!
It is a cozy place to sleep away from the crowds of Florence, with easy access via public transportation to all of Florence (il centro) and surrounding villages. The service was excellent and staff were friendly and accommodating. We loved this hotel!

iii Although convenient for transport into Florence, Number 7 bus does not now go into central Florence but instead to the San Marcos area from where you have to walk (about 10 minutes).
Hotel very nice and would stay there again for as long as I can manage the stairs (no lift).
Room spacious and very clean. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Reception good, but higher standard of spoken English would be appreciated (typical lazy English comment probably).

"Good hotel for students and couples not families"
The hotel has pretty basic furniture no tea/coffee making facilities and rather strange towels.The bed was very comfy.The room was clean and good value for money.A good location for exploring Florence as there is a regular bus into the city.Please be aware the owner does not accept credit cards so you need to have enough cash to pay for your stay.She also speaks no English so be prepared to learn some rudimentary Italian.
