Stayed here for 2 nights, last minute, in August. This hotel promotes free parking, but with very limited places, so you need to book in advance. There were no parking places available the nights we stayed. Street parking is not possible (residents only), but it is possible to park on the main ring road, with pay and display. Also if... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. This was the worst place I have ever stayed. We had the separate 2 bedroom apartment out back. The smell was intolerable. One of the employees went to the apartment and said that there was no smell. They sprayed with an overpowering air freshener that wore off after about 1 hour. Even though they said that... More

We spent 4 nights at Villa Liana and were generally pleased with our stay. It's a typical 3 star European hotel, no lift and horrible hard beds with flat pillows. Investing in feather beds or new cushiony beds would be a much needed improvement. The bathroom however was light, modern and airy. I can't comment on breakfast as we never... More

Dear Customer, Thank you for being our guest and thank you especially for your reviews. It is very important for us to know what custumers think about our Hotel.

A beautiful hotel, that let's you feel you are really staying in Florence, with the frescoes on the ceilings and walls. Breakfast was a full selection of fruit, cereals, breads, sweets, and coffees. It's a little off the beaten track, and only for the young at heart, or those armed with comfortable walking shoes. Perhaps not the best choice for... More

We found the hotel to be very nice! Our room was spacious; there was plenty of room for 4 (2 adults & 2 teenagers). The high, frescoed ceiling as well as the furniture were beautiful.

I just got back from a week in Italy, and received a very pleasant surprise at Hotel Liana. The room was very spacious with extremely high frescoed ceilings. The furnishing was very tasteful, and the bathroom was recently remodeled. The hotel has a romantic atmosphere, and is in a quiet, but yet somewhat central location. The breakfast was excellent and... More
