Reviewed 4 November 2016

Neither the internet site nor the reservation slip indicate the existence of a so called Annex where you end up if you have reserved a standard room. This is misleading and dishonest. Rooms are very poorly insonorized. Service is impersonal.

GM_VillaLaVedetta, Direttore at Villa La Vedetta, responded to this review

Dear eric580163, thanks a lot for sharing your comments with us. The Hotel is an ancient Villa and has just 18 rooms, so the cosy, small and intimate annex is one of its features, having hosted hundreds of happy guests since 2003. The annex was assigned as a lovely solution especially for you, requesting to be close by to your...

Had a lovely stay at this cozy 5 star hotel, walking distance from the center of Florence, with sweeping views of Florence from the patio during tea, and morning breakfast.

Dear Jeffrey G, many thanks for your compliments to the hotel and to the location. We are sorry we could not satisfy you on the fitness side. We do not have a fitness centre, but just a corner, provided with a couple of poor machines. In fact, this is not a service that we publish or propose, and when asked,...

I recently spent 2 nights at this gorgeous property - my friend arrived before me and texted "you will not believe the views from every single room - even the bathroom window overlooks Firenze"... so true... we talked to the manager on duty and got the history of the building.. how it was all rebuilt based on the original plans....

Out of the hustle and bustle of central Florence but still walking distance to everything. Gorgeous views of Florence from above.

We just returned from a week long stay at the Villa. We chose this hotel since it provided for free parking. Little did we know what a great choice we made. From the outset, the staff, the accommodations and the view were first rate. Also the on-sight restaurant was excellent although a little pricey. Every morning they provided a sumptuous...

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
