It was our first time in Florence and I decided to book in this hotel because it was highly recommended to me by my friend who was so impressed with it. And he is right. It is located in the hills of Florence and you will see the magnificent view that will make you feel so calm that you just...

We absolutely loved this spot. Moments away from the Michael Angelo it was a perfect stay. We loved the breakfast so much! They had great music playing each morning and helped us to start our day a little happier if even possible. There was the most beautiful basilica steps away from us and I cannot remember the name. We spent...

Florence is very touristy and hectic. Villa La Vedetta, perched on the side of a hill, is the perfect antidote: a small, quiet, all-suite hotel with a personal touch. After a day battling the crowds, it was great to settle down for tea and cookies, before heading up to the well-appointed, very large rooms with high ceilings. Our room had...

I've stayed in a couple of Villa's in different places within Europe. This is the first one with so much attention to details and structure. The hotel is placed right in the hill that faces to the City, breathtaking view. Absolutely recommend.

Neither the internet site nor the reservation slip indicate the existence of a so called Annex where you end up if you have reserved a standard room. This is misleading and dishonest. Rooms are very poorly insonorized. Service is impersonal.

Dear eric580163, thanks a lot for sharing your comments with us. The Hotel is an ancient Villa and has just 18 rooms, so the cosy, small and intimate annex is one of its features, having hosted hundreds of happy guests since 2003. The annex was assigned as a lovely solution especially for you, requesting to be close by to your...

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
