We booked into this hotel as it was on the outskirts of Florence and had a bus route in. Despite having a car we didn't want to drive into Florence city centre so this was an important factor when choosing our hotel. We arrived at the hotel about 8pm and was greeted by two members of staff who swiftly and promptly checked us in. We were advised where our room was and took the luggage up. The hotel was busy but the area was very quiet. At check in we were provided with the usual information regarding breakfast etc. We arrived in our room and saw that we had a safe and fridge. The fridge had water in it but we had brought our own. We got changed and went out for dinner. As we left the reception area for dinner we asked if kettle facilities were available or if it would be possible to hire a kettle for our room. The gentleman advised the bar area could be used 24 hours a day for hot drinks as kettles are not standard but he would see what he could do to provide us with a kettle in our room. We were happy with the information we could get hot water from the bar and thanked him and left for dinner. A few hours later we returned and a kettle was plugged in on the desk by the tv. We couldn't believe how accommodating the hotel was. This was the first time a hotel had gone truly above and beyond especially as it wasn't standard for the rooms. We used the kettle to make hot drinks which was very helpful for us. The bedroom was very comfortable and the shower was good. Breakfast was fantastic, you had coffee on request and a section of teas to help yourself to. The hotel had the standard fruit, cereal, toast, yoghurts, hard boiled eggs and cold meat, but they also had a hot selection of scrambled eggs and one of either sausage or bacon. The scrambled egg was the best I have ever tasted. They also had pastries and a jam/fruit tart. The breakfast was buffet style so you could help yourself and keep refilling your glass. The staff here work hard and are so friendly, they answer all questions with knowledge and provide maps and bus timetables with brilliant knowledge and helpful tips. I would highly recommend this hotel and thank the staff for all the assistance and knowledge they provided us during our stay. They are a credit to the hotel. I hope I can return again to the Meridiana Country hotel.

I spent 5 nights at Meridiana Country hotel for my holiday in Tuscany. I used this hotel as a base to reach many cities and villages. The longest trip was about 2 hrs drive to Siena. Florence is a short drive and to visit the Chianti region is about 1.5hrs drive. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful which made us felt very welcome. If you would like to do so shopping, Barberino Outlet village and I Gigli shopping mall are only 15 mins drive from this hotel. The rooms are nice and breakfast is also good. A small reccomendation to this hotel would be to give more attention to the cleaning. I would stay again in this hotel for my next visit to tuscany.

Lovely quiet hotel in the countryside overlooking Florence. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was a good size and very clean. Mini bar with water. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty to choose from. Easy parking. There is a bar available but no restaurant; but their sister hotel, which is less than 500 metres away, has a restaurant. 30 minute drive into central Florence. Would stay again.

We arrived at the hotel and were very impressed. The hotel staff were all lovely, and the room was just as nice. We had a lovely view from the balcony up towards the mountains. The sauna was very nice, and breakfast was spot on. Would stay here again!

Our stay at Meridian Country Hotel was a highlight for my group. From our first evening on the terrace, to our two great meals (thank you for the steak!) to the restful setting in the hills above Florence, to the hotel itself, It was a wonderful two nights!

Very efficient and amazing staff. The breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed our 4 Nights stay at the hotel. Would definitely visit this hotel again. The front office staff was extremely helpful 😊 - Roshan (Sri Lanka)

A great country style hotel with very friendly staff, rooms are basic but have everything you need. Bathroom is a good size but only has a little caravan style shower (no bath) it has a great towel warming rack for drying clothes which was handy as it was cold and wet in January. The breakfasts were very good but always the same each day, after 5 days would have liked some variety. Located on a little hill with a lovely view. Would recommend. Very reasonable rates for what you get!

A easy drive from Bologna airport to find this wonderful classy hotel for a night before entering Florence. Lovely facility, elegant, quiet and spotlessly clean. First class breakfast buffet with a cornucopia of foods. Highly recommended, front desk so polite and welcoming.

The hotel is a bit isolated so you would ideally need a car. The hotel looks quite modern and the rooms are actually outside buildings so you have a private balcony and a lawn area beyond that. I was there in November and I imagine it must be lovely in the summer as there is a lot of outdoor areas. Breakfast is very good with a great choice of hot and cold foods. Recommended.

Stayed here for two nights with my husband good base for seeing the Tuscan countryside and also Florence. I would advise hiring a car though we would've been stuck without one! Staff are very friendly and helpful especially the manager who also speaks very good English. The hotel itself was very clean did a great breakfast and had stunning views!
