Nice to stay for out of city experience

Posted Jul 31, 2013
Pros: View outside the window
Cons: Shuttle service is a must if people without a car has to reach here
Location: The area is on the country side so it's just trekking the country side and enjoying the good air
The hotel is really good with a breath taking view. The staff are very polite and extremely helpful. You would need a taxi or car to reach the place not so easy by foot or bus. I would recommend this if you want to stay in the Tuscan country side.

A Very Tuscan Experience

Posted May 14, 2013
Hotel Villa Ambrosina feels like the real Tuscany of the past with all the modern conveniences. It would be hard to imagine it anywhere else. It's situated in a lovely park on a hill and it looks out on the surrounding countryside. The staff is very gracious and we enjoyed staying there very much. In addition, it's about 15 minutes from Florence by car and one can also use the bus.

Pros: Location. Restaurant. Grounds.
Location: Top of a Tuscan hill with views. What else do I need to say?
Very nice location on top of a hill with views over the surrounding countryside. Nice grounds. Adjacent restaurant is quite good and just across the court yard, which is nice if you like to enjoy the local Chianti. Not recommended if you don't have a car, or don't feel comfortable driving up a steep, narrow switchback road. Most staff don't speak English but are willing to engage in mutual hand gestures and guessing. Adds color to the visit ;-)

Very nice

You will need a car - other than that there is really not much to say. The hotel is situated on top of a hill and has beautiful views of the surrounding areas - Tavarnuzze and Impruneta. About 5 miles to Florence - what a spectacular destination. You can't go wrong with this hotel.

great view, hard to reach

Posted Jul 17, 2011
Great view of Toscany from the rooms is waiting for you in this hotel . Rooms are large but do not look for any luxury like a refrigarator .. There is a very friendly typical Italian resturant on the ground floor sharing the great view of Toscany with delicius traditional Italian food . You definately need a car, there is no close public transport or any place in walking distance . Breakfast is simple but cheap .

Great, except if you don't have transportation up the mountain

Hotel Villa Ambrosina is a wonderful hotel with a gorgeous view and a very good restaurant. Service was very good and the staff was extremely helpful. Be ready for a steep hike (30 minutes) if you don't have a car/ don't want to take a taxi (from Florence it costs about 20 euro to taxi). Overall highly recommended.
