Hotel Villa Gabriele D'Annunzio4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed for 2 night there because of an event. The hotel is not more then 3*, far away from the center, no restaurant and the rooms are old. The service was only decent, they don't jump to help you, even if they are in 3/4 staff at the reception. There is no restaurant, just the bar where you can eat a salad. The room is old and worn out, you can hear everything the neighbor is doing. The only nice part is the big park around the hotel, so you see green around. Will not go back at this hotel.
Hotel Villa Gabriele D'Annunzio is a great base for exploring Florence,a peaceful out of town oasis.My wife and I spent 12 nights there in July 2017 and were so glad we chose an out of town hotel.On arrival we were allocated a very dark room, but a word with reception pointing out we were with them for 12 nights we were upgraded to a room with balcony at no extra cost.The hotel seems to cater for tour groups who come and go daily but this did not affect our stay one bit.Other reviews mention the bun fight at breakfast but throughout our stay we saw none of this, in fact usually there was only about a dozen guests in the breakfast room along with us.The breakfast was continental and was enough to set you up for the day so no problems there.The pool area can look a little untidy and with a bit of thought I am sure the hotel could rectify this at very little cost;but all in all it was nice to sit by the pool on the days off from exploring Florence.One thing to take into account is the hotel is in a residential area so there is little choice of where to eat locally.Six of our evening meals were spent at a great local restaurant La Porta Verde Pizzeria,a fantastic welcoming place full of Italian families and locals about 10 min walk away.Travel to Forence could not be easier,the number 17 bus takes you right through to the railway station right in the center;note the return stop is just across the road from were you get off.Bus tickets are available from reception,and the bus stop is just down the road, turn right at the second set of lights abut 8mins.All in all the staff were brilliant,hotel clean and we were made very welcome and would not hesitate to return.
This hotel is very beautifull.It has very nice gardens and is surrounded by nature. Is located in a very nice neighbor of Florence. Is very clean also!We only had breakfast in that hotel but i can tell that is very satisfying!As this building used to be a monastery is far from the old town of Florence.
My wife and I stayed here for two nights. The room was very well equipped and the hotel gave everything you needed. The pool area was nice and was welcoming in the summer. Breakfast was good. Nice restaurants nearby.
Stayed here for 7 nights. We were given a room with a beautiful balcony... that's the end of the good stuff. Filthy floor in room had to ask to have it cleaned. Balcony also filthy wasn't washed down at all during our stay. This hotel was extremely unhelpful and didn't offer so much as a map to show we were!! No food served in evenings at hotel except for groups. We were sent to a local restaurant that was closed after a long day of travel. Very disappointing indeed. 17 - 20 Euro taxi fare to see the centre of Florence. Same to go to Fiesole. swiming pool area filthy!!!!! THIS HOTEL IS IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA be warned. We were not told that bus tickets were available from reception.
Stayed here for 5 nights as part of a tour group going to the Italian MotoGP.Hotel is situated on the outskirts of Florence which is a ten minute bus ride away ,the hotel is set in a beautiful fairly quite part of town.Rooms are clean free wifi large comfortable bed ,safe air con..Negatives shower was a bit small.Breakfast was plentiful with egg bacon cereals and loads of pastries does get a bit crowded though because they cater for large coach parties.Overall lovely hotel for a short city break.
Stayed here 3 nights with some friends. We requested and were allocated rooms with verandahs which was a welcome bonus as it gave us somewhere to sit in the evening together. Rooms very comfortable although could do with a chest of drawers for added storage if you were staying for a longer duration. Sadly the swimming pool was not open for the days we were there which was a disappointment as it would have been very welcome at the end of a day sightseeing. The hotel is conveniently situated to the local bus stops into town (about 20 min ride) and there is a Lidl about 10 min walk away which is handy for supplies. Breakfast was adequate with a reasonable selection of items to suit most tastes. Overall a very nice hotel.
Stayed here with a tour group for 3 days. Hotel is in a nice quiet location near Florence. It was a former convent. Nice staff on reception. We had room 213 on second floor overlooking the front garden. Room was small with two single beds pushed together. Wardrobe with safe, bedside cabinets and lights. Armchair and desk with chair. No tea or coffee facilities. Small cramped shower, no bath. Towels OK but some looked like tea towels!. Minibar with the usual very high prices. TV with two remotes and no instructions. I think Sky TV was available but the picture was terrible. Air con in room but reception said they were not allowed to switch it on. Very hot in the night so had window open and got bitten all over by mossies - not happy. Also the swimming pool was locked and unavailable. Breakfast was sheer chaos. Staff were running out of cups, plates and food. Difficult to move around in the cramped dining area. Wrought iron chairs were designed to cause maximum discomfort. The food was laid out in the centre of the room causing endless circulating of the table by the guests.Also the toaster nearly caught fire. Although the hotel did not normally have a restaurant service they did provide a meal for us on the first night. However the least said about that the better! The hotel seems to cater for tour groups so if you are travelling as a single or a couple this place is best avoided..
20 degrees at 21:34 no air conditioning. Thought it was fault with our room. Complained at reception but apparently non in whole hotel. They have to wait for approval to turn it on! Dined there tonight too. What can I say to be polite..go out get get yourself a pizza.
Second hotel on tour of Italy (Sept 2016), I was in a single room on the first floor, the room was OK and the en-suite was a good size. Didn't sleep to well as the bed was to small for me. The breakfast has a good choice but at the time we had to have breakfast it was packed, I had to sit out side on a bench and when I went in to try and get another coffee I found that someone was sitting on the bench!! the two ladies working on breakfast never stopped running around trying to help, felt a bit sorry for them. I found all the staff I dealt with to be helpful and polite. The grounds to this hotel are very nice and it is in a quiet area.
