Wow - what a pleasant surprise this hotel was. It is an old mill that has been converted (very tastefully I might add) to a hotel that rests besides a lovely river with quietly streaming water flowing through. Just gorgeous..
In summary the service through the hotel was very good. Aldo in the hotel restaurant was exceptional in his friendly yet professional manner. The only letdown was the breakfast staff (who only bothered to look around to clear tables of piled plates and take coffee orders if her supervisor was close). I would suggest you pass on breakfast as the total offering is not very good.
The rooms were spacious, clean, with good fittings and decorated to have the old Italian feel. Overall ambience was very good and I would recommend it if you want a quiet stay away from the centre of Florence. There is however two shuttle buses that depart in the morning and return in the afternoon (last bus is 6.30pm). A problem if you want to stay in town for dinner as a taxi fare back to the hotel is approx. 30 Euro.. Other than that - you will definitely enjoy the hotel.More
