Villa Villoresi
Reviewed 3 November 2014

I stayed in this hotel for only a couple of days, I read some of the previous reviews, and felt some of them were a bit unfair.
my stay in this hotel was nothing else but very pleasant
I found everyone working there to be very helpful friendly and went out of there way to assist me in every way
I think I stayed in room 206, the room was stylish clean and felt very homely by that I mean it had a comfortable feel to it as well as feeling like a hotel. which is a good thing
the breakfast was suitable foe the region, while offering a good selection of items

Room Tip: I think I stayed in room 206, the room was stylish clean and felt very homely by that I mean it had...

A step back into history in the best sense of the term. Amazing frescoes and historical artefacts everywhere. Quiet and peaceful. Very friendly staff, including the Contessa herself! Very good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the older rooms on the loggia. Large and decorated with frescoes, etc.

Stupidly, having read the reviews I thought Villa Villoresi would be a charming villa with which to stay in. Although charming, the place is dusty, dirty, in need of restoration, and bordering on copying Fawlty Towers! I believe it to be over priced and little more than a bed and breakfast establishment. The pictures on the website were taken 30-40 years ago when the place was in good repair. Time has taken its toll on the villa and it urgently needs repair. We stayed in a superior room with access to the Loggia. We anticipated being allocated the room in the picture...alas it was not to be! The room allocated, although 'nice' smelt like a toilet. This could be because the toilet has been 'plonked' into the room and needs to be replaced. The stench is off putting! Although I am quite a particular person (I like what I like) I became quite stressed with the standard of cleanliness in the hotel. I wouldn't touch the bedspreads for example, having found pubic hair between the sheet and the bedspread. The pool is a nice touch, although the leaves in the pool were turning to mulch, the beds had seen better days. When we stayed a family of four would descend on the breakfast like a plague of locusts and take all the pastries and bread. Although we would ask for it to be replenished it wasn't...not a great selection either. As for the staff, the woman at breakfast runs around like a headless chicken. Delivering tea, coffee, replenishing breakfast supplies (if available). Frankly, the owners should be helping out! One day the maid (who cleans the rooms) came to help. Unfortunately, it was a little too late! If you like smoking...the restaurant is a joy! Both the owner, her daughter and a friend (I think!) all smoked in the restaurant, quite unacceptable as we did not know in advance that smoking was acceptable. We couldn't breathe for the stench! Can I say anything good about the place...the location is great for driving around tuscany but that is about all I can say. Will we be going back...no chance!

Room Tip: Book somewhere else!

It is full of charm and distinction. One of a very few hotels which I would like to call "home". The staff is reallly helpful and pleasant. And a chat with signora Cristina would be a very pleasant experience.
A marvellous page of history to live with.

My boyfriend and I were roobed in this place! We booked a standard room with balcony with view via booking.com. We wished to stay there 2 nights, charmed by the fotos. When we arrived after a long dirve, we were offerred a basement-like12sq.m. room, probably ex-servant's bedroom of the villa. We insisted on what we prepaid for, but there was nothing available according to the young receptionist. Suddenly appeared the owner - Kristina Villoresi - an old lady with cane. She started yelling that we were cheap, that we paid for cheap room /90 euro/, without balcony, and she was not interested why booking.com have posted different fotos and description. It was an awful experience - an 1 hour scandal, she even threatened us with her cane and pinched me! After the scandal another woman offerred us a room with a small terrace over the prison-like inner yard. We refused even to see it after the scandal. Villa Villoresi charged us 90 euro for this nightmare, even though we didn't sleep there. Booking.com apologized several times and even returned to us 45 euro! We never experienced such trouble. Later during our Italy trip fortunately we found many awesome hotels and bb, that erased the bad memories... Just mentioning: none of the standard rooms in this villa have balcony, except the one with terrace over the inner yard. Don't believe the offer "balcony with view".
