Quiet respite in Florence

Posted Nov 20, 2017
We felt like we were staying at a private villa hosted by a very helpful family. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, so very quiet; but within walking distance to all of Florence's sights. Public transportation also close by. Breakfast with many options was also included. Excellent stay!

Nice Hotel, why charge for parking?

Posted Nov 7, 2017
Pros: Nice room. Quiet.
Cons: Free parking.
The hotel was nice. Limited breakfast, and crowded. Also, they have large private parking area on villa grounds, and they still want to charge 5 euros per night to park there? They should include parking.

Very nice hotel

Posted Nov 2, 2017
Lovely hotel one mile from old city walls. Nice room with high ceiling, hard wood floors and a fabulous view. Bar for morning crossiant and cappuccino around the corner. We loved walking from the hotel around in the city and to Piazza Michelangelo, but be aware that Villa Betania is set on a seriously steep hill. There are several great cafes down the hill on Via Senese. The reception room needs updating but that’s a minor deficit in a quality hotel.

Very comfortable Florence

Posted Oct 27, 2017
Pros: Location, cleanliness, grounds and the breakfasts.
Cons: The bar lacks atmosphere.
Location: We found an excellent restaurant and an ice cream palour ten minutes walk away outside of the old city walls.
Very clean, lovely grounds, a walk to to the tourist area but manageable and a pleasant walk. Very good continental breakfasts.

Great bargain in Florence

Posted Oct 24, 2017
What I liked best about this hotel was the staff, who was very helpful with maps and bus routes and who spoke English very well. The room was comfortable and very clean. It is within walking distance of all main attractions (1-2 miles) but not exactly in the center of the attractions. There is also a very convenient bus very close to the hotel.

Nice villa in a quiet area

Posted Oct 19, 2017
Pros: Good breakfast with cappuccino available on request. Very spacious room and bathroom
Cons: The room and bathroom space could have been utilized better by providing drawers on the night stands, and the study table. Bathroom also has a tiny
Location: 30 minutes walk from town center. About 15 euros by cab to city center. If you want to compare hotels by price, add 30 euros per day for a round trip
Its a nice villa in a quiet area surrounded by beautiful parks on one side. No Elevator. The staff helps in taking the luggage upstairs.

Nice quiet hotel

Posted Oct 11, 2017
Cons: Nothing
A delightful hotel in a lovely setting - set back from the road so nice and quiet. Modern facilities, well maintained and comfortable. Breakfast was more than adequate. Having travelled from Rome it was nice to be out of the centre in a lovely clean hotel with staff that were only to happy to help. Restaurants a 10 minute walk away and the centre of Florence probably 25minutes. Good value for money and the free bottle of Prosecco was delicious.

Beautiful Villa

Posted Oct 11, 2017
Pros: Being outside the hustle/bustle of old town Florence, in a hotel that has character
Cons: For the hotel, perhaps better breakfast selections, otherwise nothing
This hotel is a converted villa in extensive grounds that make one feel like one is in the Tuscany countryside. The rooms are well laid out, bathrooms being exceptionally nice. The location is close to the #11 bus route to get into and back from the old town, and each way trip is only $1.44 at current exchange rates. But walking down from the hotel is delightful, and takes just 23 minutes, when one can observe lovely Italian architecture. Will go back to this hotel next time we are in Florence.

Cute hotel with great staff!

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Pros: Service and location.
Cons: More recommendations of restaurants/cafes close by for those who do not want to go into the city every day.
The hotel is tucked away and feels quiet and peaceful with a lovely garden in the back. It is very clean and the service from all the staff is top notch. We had issues with the bus that is right outside the hotel but that is not the fault of the hotel. However, we did end up taking a taxi or walking most places. The hotel is a great value and I would definitely recommend it!
