Just far enough away from the city centre ...

...that you feel in the countryside, but near enough in short taxi ride to everything! Beautiful buildings and grounds

Italian Tour

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: It is intimate, staff are friendly and you will know them by name.
Cons: I think they should have bistecca alla Fiorentina as a dedicated menu item and then I wouldn't have gone to Il Latini.
Location: Must sees: Uffizi, Accademia to see statue of David, Mercato Centrale to get your bollito at Nerbone, climb the Basilica di Santa Maria
We spent two nights at the Grand Hotel et de Milan, two nights at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio, two nights at the Grand Hotel Villa Cora Firenze, three nights at Covo dei Saraceni in Positano, and three nights at Hotel Raphaƫl in Rome. The competition was stiff, and while my wife and I most enjoyed Positano, we both agreed that the service at the Grand Hotel Villa Cora was most exceptional. The staff was best dressed and most helpful. It is the only place that I can still name staff members and we travelled last month. Marco the driver mapped out our walking tour, Marco the concierge arranged early morning tickets for the Uffizi and Accademia when there was no online availability, Francesca our bartender was friendly, and we even got to know the general manager Simone. I was most impressed that I didn't once have to pour my own wine or water at dinner. The food was refined. This is a boutique, intimate hotel. A drawback is the brief shuttle or walk to town, but well worth the price as compared to the St. Regis in town, and I am a Starwood Preferred Guest. Consider walking thru the Boboli Gardens to the hotel.

Luxury at a price

Posted Apr 30, 2014
You get what you pay for, kind of. It's expensive but the hotel is definitely top-notch. Very luxurious and clean. Beautiful grounds. The drawback is anything extra like food and water is overpriced.

Stunnning hotel

Posted Mar 11, 2014
Pros: Everything
Location: Close to Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace.
If you go to Florence you must stay at Villa Cora. The place is stunningly grand from top to toe and the staff are excellent. We were upgraded to a suite complete with lavish furniture, works of art, 4 poster bed and 2 bathrooms! Although the hotel is just outside town, there is a free shuttle mornings and evenings. Alternatively, a taxi takes 5 minutes or you can walk in 25 minutes or so. Either way, it is worth it believe me!

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Posted Sep 26, 2013
Villa Cora lived up to the reviews of earlier guests. The hotel is wonderful. Although we felt totally welcome, we were a little disappointed to find ourselves in the guest house and to observe guests staying in the 'big house' receiving short tours of the beautiful public rooms. The bathroom was lovely though way too small and our room did not have any mirror besides the one over the sink.
