Everything was what I expected and more!
Posted Sep 22, 2014
Our room was comfortable, clean, cozy and beautifully decorated, plus it had an amazing view of the Monastery. Elizabeth and Fabrizia did everything possible to make our experience so enjoyable; they provide us with amazing tips to travel in the city, and also gave us maps, let us borrow books and book amazing tours for us. The hotel is close from downtown Florence so car is not needed, but it's a nice to have to explore all the towns in Tuscany (or you can take the train or book tours for them). If traveling by train, use the bus route 37 from SMN to the stop (ferrata) Le Rose 01 (as of Sep 2014, or check the Ataf page for updated schedule and route).
Quick notes: the breakfast was great, home made warm bread and cappuccino every day! Internet was completely free for us, so that was a big plus. Don't forget to try their house Chanti.
My husband and I have no words to express our gratitude to the staff of Il Poggiolo delle Rose for providing us the best Italian attention we have ever seen.
