Villa Ulivi is a remarkably beautiful and luxurious fifteenth century Florentine Villa located few minutes away from Florence's historic city centre and from its main monuments, as well as from the shopping area, up towards the wonderful landscape of an ideal Tuscan hill. The imposing building, characterized by the Italian Villa tradition while incorporating the comforts available today, is set in a residential area that both overlooks and is extremely close to the towns attractions. Access to downtown Florence is easily attainable by either a comfortable, scenic walk or a short bus ride down the famous Via Bolognese. Both options are simple to navigate for travellers of any age or experience level. Villa Ulivi also has partnerships with scooter and bicycle rental companies to meet all of their guests travel needs. The villa grounds are surrounded and beautified by magnificent vineyards and olive orchards, as well as an array of local flowers and blossoming trees. In spite of its central location, Villa Ulivi is immersed in a garden planted with fragrant roses and lavender, at the end of a shady horse-chestnuts' lane. Villa Ulivi offers travellers an authentic Tuscan experience and allows for a relaxing retreat from the "hustle and bustle" of the nearby city centre.

Ok, aber niemals 4 Sterne

Wir haben das Hotel als 4 Sterne für 2 Nächte gebucht, davon war nicht viel zu sehen. Es ist eine alte Villa, die schon länger nicht renoviert wurde, das Gelände ist groß und schön, aber ungepflegt. Wir hatten ein Zimmer unterm Dach mit nur Dachfenstern, die konnte man nicht offen lassen wenn man wegging, da es rein regnen könnte. Eine Klimaanlage gab’s nicht, für Anfang Mai war das akzeptabel, später wird es dort mit Sicherheit zu warm sein. Das Personal (eigentlich war das nur eine Frau, die alles gemacht hat, vom Check-in, putzen bis Frühstück servieren) war freundlich und hilfsbereit, die Dame konnte auch sehr gut Englisch. Die Lage ist nicht schlecht, 5 min bis zur Bushaltestelle, dann ca. 20 min bis in die Innenstadt, ca. 3 mal die Stunde. Das Frühstück war ok, für Italien typisch. Das Bett war auch bequem genug (hat sehr stark gequietscht). Als Fazit, für einen kurzen Aufenthalt, wenn es draußen nicht zu heiß ist, ganz akzeptabel, vor allem weil die Hotels in Stadtgebiet von Florenz ziemlich teuer sind.

Einmal und NIE wieder!!

Wir sind für 2 Nächte in diesem "Hotel" eingekehrt und waren zunächst vom Ambiente der alten Villa nördlich vom Stadtzentrum von Florenz begeistert. Leider kam die Ernüchterung um so schneller... das Zimmer war von der Ausstattung her keineswegs 3 Sterne... neben der fehlenden Klimaanlage, der kaputten Steckdose und den Schimmelflecken überall, bestach das Zimmer mit einem wunderbaren Ausblick auf einen zugemüllten Hinterhof. Dank der fehlenden Klimaanlage genossen wir die knapp 35° in der Nacht im Zimmer. Frühstück war nichts besonderes aber auch nicht schlecht. Das Personal, sofern vor Ort, war bemüht hilfreich zu sein, schien aber überfordert. Für diesen Preis hatten wir etwas besseres erwartet!!

A éviter

Bel emplacement , belle demeure extérieurement de 1930 mais le confort date aussi de 1930: On entend tout à travers les cloisons, sanitaire déplorable, mauvais petit déjeuner avec attente interminable pour avoir du café, accés internet = 1 ordinateur dans le salon à la vitesse de l'escargot , personnel dépassé etc etc

Non ho avuto modo di soggiornare

Non ho avuto modo di soggiornare nell'hotel, dato che per "errore" si erano dimenticati di dichiarare la camera occupata. Sono stata spostata presso un altro hotel, di categoria e qualità più bassa e mi è sembrato che è una pratica frequente. Pessima esperienza!

La villa è sicuramente fuori mano

La villa è sicuramente fuori mano ma in una posizione tranquilla e ricca di verde. La struttura è piacevole, contorniata da uno splendido parco, e gli interni particolari anche se un pò kitch. Le pecche riguardano la pulizia (gomitoli di polvere sono rimasti sotto il letto per tutti i 4 giorni nella medesima posizione) ed il ricambio dei campioni di shampoo e sapone (dopo il primo giorno non se ne sono più visti). Nel complesso il giudizio è comunque positivo per i buoni servizi e la colazione.
