We stayed here for 4 days and we just loved this place. Beautifully decorated with museum quality paintings and artwork, set in a quiet location, great breakfast and service. Shuttle bus service to the center in every hour. Highly recommend L.S.
We stayed in the center of Florence for 4 nights then moved here for 3 nights. Nice change of pace. Property is beautiful and very relaxing, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed sitting on the patio outside of the bar and having wine and bar bites. Only problem is no shuttle service after 7:00 PM. They really need to provide a way home after dinner in town for those customers not wanting to eat at the restaurant in the hotel every night. Otherwise a very nice experience.
A great understatedly elegant hotel in the outskirts of Florence. Free shuttle to town. Excellent hotel service
The classic room is too small for two adults with luggage. The bathroom was so small, you could sit on the toilet and actually put your feet into the very small shower! We stayed there two years ago before being bought out and it was a wonderful hotel.
We saw one bad review , but went anyway , certainly glad we did , the villa was really wonderful. We didn't have a great experience in the restaurant , but otherwise over florence and the location a little out of town was great
While this hotel is a fair distance outside Florence, it is a very comfortable place to stay. The hotel staff was very helpful, and the facility was very nice. Breakfast was good. The free shuttle they run to Florence is nice, but only 4 trips per day; 2 in the am 2 in the late afternoon, and the shuttle is small so space is limited. Taxi fare was about $25 to or from town.
The Manager and the staff are very professional as well fantastic hosts. Great experience and highly recommended. The hotel location is outside Florence but still with a shuttle service available for the guests. The city center is not so far away but to be considered according to the type of visit it is planned. Driving with car make it easier access from highway and parking is not a problem at the hotel.
Wonderful! The staff were superb: friendly, attentive and always willing to lend a hand. The property itself is awesome. It sits within well-manicured and tended grounds. Although close to a fairly busy road, it was generally country quiet. The restaurant was very good: food and service excellent. We had the house pizza margherita our first night as we were too lagged to stumble around anymore. It was excellent. Our room - classic standard - was nicely appointed, with plenty of space and places for our clothes and such, and was kept up very well during our stay. We chose not to rent a car and used the bus (Linea 23A) to get into (Fermata: Park Pino) and back (Fermata: Olmi) from Florence (avg 20 min ride). The bus stops we used were each about 1/4 km from the hotel and easily walkable. We noted only two downsides. First, from the sound of it, all the room baths have whirlpool tubs. I'm sure this is a keen feature for some, but it's a real annoyance when the neighbors pop it on, especially at 23:30 when reveille is at 04:00 the next day in order to catch a morning flight. Second, and this became less of an issue as we grew accustomed to the area and to how things worked, the virtue of seclusion and distance away from things was a bit of hassle. We are the type of traveler that likes to play tourist during the day, then head back to the hotel for a clean-up, nap and drink, and then head back out looking for someplace to have dinner. The round-trip time between downtown Florence and the hotel generally put a damper on that approach. Overall, we (the two of us) highly recommend the Villa Olmi resort. The quiet at night and the Villa Olmi experience (staff, amenities, breakfast buffet, restaurant, and the property) was well worth the daily expense and time into downtown Florence.
