Recent guest reviews

Hotel is in a lot of buildings approx 15 min outside Florance in the countryside. The place is very old and needs good renovation and as well a lot of the facilities in the room´s has to be updated to 2017 standard. Refridgerator not working. Aircondition not working. ( in one of the rooms we have been renting for 3 days - they did not manage to get this repaired - we was not offered another room - but only a fan - which was helping but it was not OK. Only WIFI in the main building and restaurant area. The hotel manager / Owner promised to fix this - when we informed about this at check in - but nothing happens. I think it is time this hotel and the owner will get retired - and let new persons get to this place - It could be a pearl with the right renovation and professional management. The restaurant was very nice - good food, good waiters and good prices. I will NOT be back !

I was for the first time in this pleasant hotel. It is not in the center of Florence, but on the hills around it, with the beautiful views. There is the bus 25, which brings you in 15-20 minutes to the town's center. The hotel rooms are quite small, but comfortable and quiet, with the safe and with mini bar and tea/coffee facilities on request. I liked the wooden ceiling The bedroom and and bathroom are clean and the staff is very kind, especially Mrs. Francesca, the hotel's owner, and Mrs. Irina at the reception. The breakfast is continental buffet, without eggs, but with everything else. The juice could be better, but the coffee is very good and you can get cappuccino.

Really helpful and friendly staff. About 15 minutes from the Duomo by bus or taxi, but it feels like a world away. Elegant, quiet, and genteel. If you've been traveling in the bustle of Rome, Venice, and Milan and could use the relaxation of the quiet hills of Tuscany while still being close enough to see the Florentine sights, check out this Villa. Also, the view is incredible!

This hotel provides you Plenty of space and satisfying service. It is surrounded by beautiful area where is on top of the hills near by Florence downtown. Hotel people are kind and smiley all the time.

I have to confess, I did not know what to expect when arriving at the hotel. I’ve read all the reviews before booking and had no clue what was I going to find. •The View-Absolutely stunning! By day, by night, from the room, from the terrace and pool, just breathtaking. •The Restaurant-Such a nice athmosphere, the staff was so amazing and helpful. Everynight there is other menu from which you can combine 3 or 4 courses, or just order whatever you wish. The decor gets you in the 16-17th century and the food makes it worth the money. A little bit pricey, but it is good quality. •Breakfast-Quite good, has fresh juice, croissants, coffee, many kinds of eggs and hams, italian cheese, fruits •Parking-You can leave youf car in front of the reception, it’s not guarded, but as the property is very big and far from the road, it’s safe •The Rooms-Well... here’s the thing. Despite being very clean and well maintained, the rooms feel a little bit old. Also the bathrooms. Exaclty like a noble’s villa from a couple of centuries ago. (I think that for a person that is used to big known-chain hotels it’s not the best choice, but if you are willing to try something new, it’s worth the try) •The Garden and Pool-Having the perfect view, they seem nice as well. Although, if maintained a little bit more, would be from heaven. •The Staff-PERFECT HOSTS! Definitely going to come back sometime!

It's true... read the previous reviews and you will get a very accurate idea of the merits and flaws of Villa Le Rondini. The one positive that I didn't read about was the staff. Everyone at The hotel was extremely helpful from check-in, ordering taxis, getting pool hats ( this was a negative about the pool) and serving meals in their beautiful outdoor dining area. Breakfast was sufficient, dinner entrees were prepared with skill and great Tuscan flavors. My only negative would be that even though it is an outdoor area, the smoke from smokers at tables can be bothersome. It's very hard under the canopy to escape the smell. Fortunately, there weren't a lot of smokers at the restaurant during our meals. The pool is beautiful and refreshing! There is a bar/food service that was very reasonable. Again, pool caps are mandatory for men and women. The area around the pool could be improved as many of the chairs and loungers are located on a dirt hill that have many olive pits on the ground(ouch). Wish I could give a higher rating but, there are some glaring needs for updating and better convenience. The wi-fi only works if you are near the router located by the check-in area. I hope they commit to a plan of updating and renewal, only then, would I come back.

A beautiful view over the city. Great service with a family atmosphere. Variety at breakfast. Friendly staff. Rooms not necessarily modern but very spacious and clean. Easy access to the bus. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our time. The only negative is that the beautiful pool was freezing.

This hotel and its owner are probably on its last days. The hotel is some way out of Florence on a bus route frequented in the evening by male refugee workers who work with the many "hawkers" and street sellers. This might be of concern to single female / dual female guests who have no car and wish to use the bus service to visit Florence. The hotel is used by local Italian families for parties and weddings at the weekends , Thursday through to Sunday. So it can be pot luck if you get sleep after a hard days Florence walking. Further the breakfasts are a narrow selection of cold meats and fruit/ cereal . The staff with the exception of the owner are friendly and pleased to see you, the grounds are in need of some real attention and the building requires a major overhaul. The pool is used by many locals as a "day trip" to cool off in the Tuscan heat , it is clean and well looked after. The views over the city of Florence are spectacular.

I went to dinner with my family in occasion of my birthday. I like so much places old style,and Villa Le Rondini I think is perfect. In opposition to all fashion hotels where most of people loves to go,is a place for people that have a high passion for the tuscan story. The restaurant was quiet and has an amazing landscape,the chef is one of the best I knew!!! I suggest to all people that in italy we call " Amante del bel vivere " !!

We stayed 3 nights in Le Rondini. We were... let's say surprised. We don't think it deserve a 4 stars label. Although we were helped ok to good (depending with whom...) and it was really clean the whole house is shabby and would need some serious work. The good thing about it is that it gives a bit of style and old fashion style. You have the feeling to go back in on other time. Read carefully other reviews and you'll find out, the view is amazing, situation regarding the city is ok, it has it's charm but had much better days. It is very old and haven't been redone in years. Peeling paint, dirty windows, worn sofas, and what should we say about the manager? She is bitter and not interested in pleasing her customers any more. The rest of the staff is very smiling and nice. Specially in the restaurant. Food was ok but to expensive for what it is. Breakfast a bit minimalist (although a buffet). Our room was at the edge of the house, very quite and nice light. It was not big but had armchairs and good beds (and clean!). Wifi works if you are on the right network... Ask if it doesn't work, they will give you an other one... There is a hairdryer but very old and not really efficient. No curtain around the bathtub so hard not to overflow the whole bathroom. Shower ok. The park around the house and the swimming pool looked good. Over all we had a good and interesting stay but we wonder how it will go in the future...
