Score from 124 reviews Good
A very quiet place, beautiful gardens,
a little bit far away from the city of Florence, especially not enough Restaurants in the area of the Villa Rosa , to my knowledge only one.
Very large comfortable, beautiful room with view over garden and hills. Easy access to city via bus. Beautiful old villa and peaceful location.
Lovely rooms Great breakfast Wonderful service
Been eaten alive by Mosquitos ! But then we did experience that throughout Italy
Endroit charmant, calme et très propre
Le wifi qui ne marchait pas.
A very nice ambience
The grounds would be lovely if maintained to a as high a standard as the villa
We liked the building with the paintings on the walls, we liked the breakfast listening classical music, we liked the garden with the ancient fountain, but nothing compares with the cultivated and civilized nature and behavior of the owners. If Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance then a tired traveler can be reborn in the Villa Ape Rosa.
The owner Elena and her husband were gracious, friendly, helpful hosts. Elena greeted us and made coffee for us whilst we waited for our room. We were an early arrival. Room 6 was large, immaculate, enhanced by antique furniture and beautifully tiled floors and looked to the outside trees. Kingsize bed was comfortable, single bed was comfortable, bathroom immaculate, sizeable. Two flights of stairs to climb ( no lift ), but stairs are wide, of granite, I think, with woven old iron railings for support. Each floor has a relaxing, lounge room with its personal library with views over the interesting garden. There is a small refrigerator on floor one relaxing area. Each floor has tea/ coffee supplies. Guests have to ask for milk for tea / coffee. Wifi free, good connection. Bus # 4 stop to the city of Florence is just around the corner of the hotel.
Hot breakfast consumed by others. Not enough for late comers.
It is a real Tuscany villa. We felt as a member of the family who own this. It was fantastic.
Charmig house and nice jacuzzi in the garden. Very nice and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Peaceful location.
Very nice place to stay and relax
Internet was hard at first Once in it worked fine the rest of stay
A true taste of what its like to live in todays and past Florence. Very hospitable, friendly and helpful. We Enjoyed our stay and would recommend it further. Loved the simple egg maker :) and breakfast.
A quiet place Free parking Public transport to the center of Florence nice staff
Small rooms Bad maintenance, paint peeling, mold on shower walls
Rooms full of Mosquitos, no enough towels, no enough toilet paper and soaps... To be honest is just a general bad service and not attentive for the rooms.
The charming villas provides a sanctuary away from the busy centre. The garden was very relaxing! Our room was supurb complete with a view! What more could you ask for? The public transport (bus) straight into the centre just a few metres from the gate. A perfect location when visiting Florence! Just perfectly dropped out of your dreams into reality.
Best of the best. Great villa with lage garden.You feel like at home. Breakfast was served such a nice atmosphere with classic music and nice decoration. Close to bus stop where it takes 10 to 15 mnts to florence. Hospitality by owners was excellent.. İf you want to live tuscany atmospere just go..it is best of the best deal.
This was a good hotel with parking (something important in Firenze). Its not close to downtown, but there is a bus station right in front. The style of the decoration is old fashion but makes you really feel in Tuscany. =)) I appreciated a lot.
Beautiful old villa with big garden and place for the car. Friendly and helpful staf. Bus nearby. Quite place in residential area.
Wifi is not always working, but then the owners can start it again for you. So just ask.
It's an oasis in a big city that is calm and quiet with a wonderful garden and green space. And parking! Only a short bus ride from Florence center. It is an old building with lots of charm and historical spirits.
Effort for authentic styling
Not enough personnel, very poor isolation- a lot of noise and cold air coming inside, difficult access to rooms (too many keys), pour wifi connection. The price is far exagerrated
Staff were helpful and friendly
Terrible wifi Extremely noisy 5 keys required to access property and room Locks were difficult to open, is a fire hazard
Location was excellent for getting the bus into the city centre. The house is in a quiet area and has a lovely garden.
The house and the furniture have become a little dated.
Trouble with reservations
Beautiful villa with huge garden Friendly staff Private parking in the garden Breakfast in the garden Bus just twi mins away- convenient connection even you are not used to public transportation..,
Charge for parking for last day 8 euros, even its directly in the villa's garden
The location was great for leaving your car while you take the bus into Venice without worrying about the ZTL zone. The owners and staff are very accommodating and helpful with instructions on how to get into town and where to eat.. The house and yard are very elegant. The wisteria in bloom were gorgeous and smelled fantastic.
Mosquitoes. We had to keep windows closed (no screens) but it was pretty hot so a bit uncomfortable to sleep. Probably not as much of a problem once the air conditioning is on for the season.
Very kind and helpful house owners.
Difficult to access by car: narrow entrance, on a hill. What you see is not what you get: did not enjoy anything that is shown on the booking.com pictures, except for breakfast room: too small, need to share table, table dressing not clean, orange juice is something artificial. Room smells old. Narrow stairs to climb to the room.
