This is THE place to stay if your budget allows. The ancient building is so well designed architecturally and the rooms with views magnificent. It is well worth the price. The dining area was so wonderful and convenient, there's no place else I would consider to dine. The food is excellent as well.

I have stayed at some of the finest hotels in the world and sometimes the staff can be pretty stuffy, especially when... More

This hotel has provided the most wonderful hotel experience ever. The hotel, surrounding, furnishings take you back in time, But it is so very modern in offerings of food, rooms, amenities. The service and food were the best we've ever experienced.

A fabulous hotel, converted from an old monastery and hidden away in the hills of Fiesole, overlooking Florence. This gorgeous place has immediately entered my list of places to return to, as one night was definitely not enough.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A short distance from the centre of Florence, Belmond Villa San Michele is housed in a 15th-century monastery with a façade designed by Michelangelo. It is surrounded by a large, wooded park and lush terraced gardens boasting magnificent views of the city and the Arno Valley below. The 45 bedrooms and suites are simple, peaceful and elegant while the Renaissance splendour of Florence is a mere 15 minutes away with the complimentary shuttle service, running every 20 minutes. La Loggia Restaurant provides a unique dining venue where guests can enjoy their lunch or dinner, based on Italian and Tuscan cuisine, while admiring the view over Florence. For a light lunch or a snack, the Pool Restaurant, situated directly by the hilltop panoramic swimming pool, is the ideal place. For food lovers, the renown Cooking School offers hands-on lessons to learn how to prepare the best Italian specialties. A Kids' Club and a dedicated Kids' Concierge are available to make the stay of younger guests truly unforgettable. The new Davanzati Room offers privacy and tranquillity thanks to its exclusive location, and a spacious terrace with a view for small banquets, cocktails and coffee breaks. Ideal for hosting meetings, launches and presentations, it also serves as a space for banquets for up to 100 people. ... more   less
