Villa Belvedere - Florence
Ranked #200 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We chose this lovely hotel mainly because of the peace & quiet away from town and the great views. Also we could park our motorbike here safely and free of charge. The staff are friendly and helpful, they booked us a table at the excellent 'Da Ruggero' Trattoria just 5 minutes walk away, it books up quick! Our room was spotless and enormous, but the bathroom was a little dated as other reviewers have mentioned. We had a lovely big terrace overlooking the gardens and city. Breakfast was excellent, with eggs cooked to order and great pastries. It was nice to have a reasonably priced bar area to relax in after a day walking round town or enjoy after an early sitting at the local restaurant. It's a 20 minute walk to town the direct route, but make the effort and a slightly longer walk to go by the Piazzale Michelangelo, with it's unbeatable views of the city.

Stayed here for a wedding in Florence. Whilst it is slightly out of town (15 euro taxi), it is very very spacious. There is a tennis court, kids area and swimming pool.

If you are looking for a 4 seasons you will be disappointed as this place oozes charm. There is parquet flooring throughout the hotel. It has great views of Florence. It is a proper 70s mecca and I really hope they don't modernise it or upgrade it as it will lose it's authentic charm.

Room Tip: Choose first floor overlooking Florence...it will have a balcony...you won't be disappointed

A special thank you for tracking us down on the street after we had departed with my Daughter's calculator that she left in the room. She needed the calculator for home work but more importantly, it demonstrated the excellent level of service Villa Belvedere provides. We had a wonderful visit to Florence and stayed in one of the large suites with a terrace overlooking the impressive city skyline. The suite was large with very well done. The service provided with top notched from the moment we arrived and throughout our stay. Thank you again.

Located a bit far from the old town which however can be easily reached by bus(about 5 minutes), Villa Belvedere benefits first of all just from its location. Nestled among pines and cypresses on the slopes of the hills surrounded Florence this hotel is a real hide-away of beauty and peace. Choose room with terrace paying extra and you will be admiring the views of Florence worthwhile for you to visit this city.
Small but cosy swimming pool with clipped bay trees growing all around has been a real refreshment after coming back from city heat. The premises is rather old and needs in our opinion a major repair but it's very cosy, nice and clean. Breakfast is substantial with good choice. The lack of music at breakfast room and in the bar during the day and especially in the evening was a kind of surprise for us. The music we mean should not break the tranquillity of this place but just be an integral part of it,
And to make the whole story complete we can't help mentioning the hosts and personal of this family run hotel, They are all kind attentive people trying to do their best to make you feel like at home.

Room Tip: room with terrace is a must, book rooms in the main building
