        The staff tried very hard in trying to resolve our luggage problem (too much) in flying back to US. However, they were not very accurate, or else the language barrier got in the way.

        The room was small, but the bathroom was elegant. Very impressed with the stonework.

        The ambience, the views and the staff are superb. This hotel ia a relays chateau rightly so

        I cannot accept that the overnight price of euros299.00does not include breakast! A fabulous location but I have stayed in better hotels before for a lot less!

        The air conditioning in the annexe was locked on 25.5c and could not be reduced.the room was like a sauna.we stayed at the hotel to attend a wedding on site.the dinner service was poor-at one stage the cutlery ran out.they should be used to mass catering!take care concerning mosquitoes.these seem to be endemic in florence and 5 stars do not stop you from getting bitten.we have come home with numerous bites!

        The location is surely impressive and the staff extremely super nice and helpfull. the free shuttle service is absolutely fantastic!

        There are a few things that I was not happy about: the bed mattress was old and had a big hole in the middle that made our sleep extremely uncomfortable. they didn't even have a selection of pillows, but only one standard, that , in a hotel room that costs 299 euros per night is not acceptable. the breakfast was totally not worthed 25 euros per person ( they should really have it included in the price). For how perfect is a view , and we all know how important is a room with a view in Florence, they are located next to a camping ground, and in the middle of the night and early in the morning, the camping ground management was calling people with megaphones to move their cars.... ad was utterly annoying and loud!

        Jammer dat Ze het zwembad verhuren voor feesten! Als je een hotel met zwembad neemt en je mag er niet in.... Klopt niet!!!!

        The location

        The service was horrible and staff had no clue on anything other then to check you in and check you out. Many mistakes plus never ever give your laundry it will be ruined I had that with all my items given for the laundry service. Shame the hotel could be a potential cause of the location. The hotel plus the staff need a major lift and make over. Room service you can forget about, I once asked for the menu and out of all there was only a cheese tomato sandwich which had to be prepared by the lady at front desk and that was just before mid night.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The terrace in room 103 and the suite 201, which offered us privacy and beautiful views

        Wifi was sporadic and the phone broke down 50% of the time. THis caused us to have to communicate at our expense through mobile phones with the hotel.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Especially the location is superb with views on the Duomo. But it is the staff that make the real difference. Imagine the kindest and most service minded people you can think of. Thank you ayman for your swift and enthusiastic unsurpassed service.The same is true for the ladies and gentlemen at the front desk. Thank you ladies for your help and valuable suggestions. Also the pool , the breakfast and dinner were excellent. This Villa is superb in every respect.

        If Villa Vedetta wants to be perfect, then one point remains. Wifi could be stronger in the rooms.

        The room is very NICE.We cansee all the city on the balcony.THE Staff is also very nice.

      • Couple
        6.2

        Nice beautiful part of the city with good views from the restaurant, close to P. Michaelangelo. Bus no. 13 and 12 stops right outside the hotel. Spacious bathrooms and overall very clean. Quiet and relaxed, away from the crowds and the city.

        We got a room with no windows (doors doubled up as windows but the curtains had to be drawn at all time as they opened out into the hotel entrance area). It would have been good to get a room with a window overlooking the city for a better experience (which were the non-ground floor rooms). The bathroom is too spacious compared to the size of the room. Could have done with more space in the room itself.

      • Single
        4.6

        Hotel is good. Location is on the hill, shuttle bus is valid till 19:00.

        The front desk confirmed to me the days of stay, but one day before I left, they asked me to check out and said it was according to their record, and the rooms were fully booked on the day. Although they found another hotel for me, it was a 4 star hotel which I didn't like, then I still had to move to it. I understand that the reason at all was they sold my room at higher price.

      • Couple
        9.6

        The service is excellent. Staff are friendy and helpful. The mini-bus service is a good option if you don't want to drive into town, but it is worth bearing in mind that this service is available until 19:00.

        10.0

        Everything: rooms, breakfast, residential area and Tuscany's scent all over it.
