“Excellent 5-star resort, right outside Florence”
My wife and I stayed in the Villa Olmi Resort for four nights during out visit to Tuscany. The hotel is in a perfect location, right outside Florence, off the A-1 highway. It's only a few minutes drive to get into the city, and in a convenient location to reach other Tuscany destinations. Our room had a balcony with a great view of the surrounding hills. Breakfast was served right outside the hotel lobby, in a large courtyard by the hotel pool. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. They recommended some local restaurants, and helped us make reservations in Italian. Just a few minutes from the hotel there is a commercial center with a Co-op grocery store, an bank, and some great restaurants. It was a great choice. We would definitely recommend it!
“I would go again without any doubt”
We enjoyed very much staying in Villa Olmi because the hotel was veery nice. It was like being at a friend¨s house and not a hotel and all the villages surrounding Villa Olmi were only a few minutes by car. Siena San Gimminiano, Volterra Lucca, Pisa and many others.
“We would love to go back to this hotel!”
My husband and I loved this hotel so much that we extended our stay. The minute you arrive, the staff treats you as if you are the most important person in the world. The grounds are beautiful and our room was very nice. We wish they had a fitness center especially after having their great dinners and buffet breakfast! We highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in a luxury hotel that is just close enough and far enough from the all of the shops and historical sites in Florence.
The Villa Olmi was outstanding it made our vacation awesome. I would recommend to everyone that goes to Florence to stay at Villa Olmi
“Florence March vacation”
An upscale hotel with excellent service and spacious clean rooms well decorated. The hotel is located within 10 minutes drive from the old city but in a suburban type of neighborhood. Plenty of free parking space available. Don't drive to Florence's center. It is a nightmare. Take the shuttle form the hotel. For some reason the shuttle does not run in the evening and that is the only minus point in my review. However, you could take a taxi. There are excellent restaurants available in the area of the hotel but they are hidden. Ask the hotel reception for restaurant recommendations and directions. We were upgraded to a garden room, which had its own private garden and that was thanks to Expedia. Eating at the hotel's restaurant can be very expensive (over 100 euros for two) and the amount of food can be small. Avoid that if you can. Breakfast was included and it was excellent and with many varieties of food available. I will definitely come back to this hotel when I come back to Florence.
“Great hotel for family”
The Resort was away from the city, which allows for a very comfortable/relaxing environment. I was 15 feet away from a gorgeous pool. I would recommend eating dinner somewhere else, because the meals were way too pricey for what you received. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
“Good hotel outside the city!”
You must have a car. Shuttle was only twice a day 10 am and 5 pm. Staff is excellent. Buffet is superb. The mattress are like sleeping on a cement block ! Also, the walls are paper thin. We moved in the middle of the night because the couple next door started to make love at 2am and we could hear everything. The flooring is tiles- we could hear next room walking. I would not recommend staying on bottom floor. The decor is very nice and the rooms are spacious. I still give it 5 star- but - will stay there only in low season and if you have a car rental. There is bus stop - 5 min walk from the hotel -Bus 23A. it takes 20 min to get to town because of many stops.
“great hotel for a family”
The hotel was very good. we like rooms and personel. Also the garden was perfect.
“Great place to stay, especially if you have a car!”
This place was gorgeous, comfortable and perfect for what we were looking for- somthing upscale and affordable not right in Florence. You have everything you could want here and the gardens and surrondings are beautiful. Fantastic breakfast and helpful staff. The only issue we had the whole time was our room was fairly hot and we couldn't control the heat, however, when we asked the staff to turn it down they did. I would stay here again for sure!
