    Such a wonderful place to relax with nature and the amazing views. The family were extremely helpful (even when we arrived to check-in at 00:30 after midnight).

    Breakfast a little basic but served its purpose.

    Staying out of the city was quiet and relaxing yet getting down into Florence by bus was easy. The view looking down on the city from our window was fantastic. Meals at the hotel were great as well as a couple at the peaceful town of Fiesole above. This is the way to do Florence.

    The tub was ample but the handheld shower head was not ideal.

    The Bencista is a fabulous old villa up in the hills of Fiesole with breathtaking views of Florence. It is a wonderful, quiet retreat from long days of sight-seeing. It is a short walk to the bus stop to catch the #7 bus into town (20 min) or a €25 cab ride (recommended for luggage). We had good wi-fi in our room as well as around the building. The family that runs the Bencista is very kind and welcoming. We ate dinner at the hotel every night and it was absolutely delicious. Breakfast (included in the room price) was an array of bread, cheese, meat, fruits etc. and was also very good. We stayed for 4 nights but I wish we had stayed longer just to spend a day reading on the terrace under the Tuscan sun. Highly recommended!

    Beautiful setting. Not over priced, Helpful friendly family

    The whole experience of staying in this beautiful place was ruined by the noise of the cleaners in the morning. Unfortunately the building is old and so you can hear a pin drop through the walls. The cleaners had no respect for those wanting to lie in as they talked too loud and bashed about from 7.30am onwards and even knocked on our door three times. This was unacceptable....a great shame.

    Fantastic service with very accommodating staff. Great views whilst having great value & good quality meals. Nothing was a problem.

    There were no price lists for dinner or drinks publicly available so you felt uncomfortable buying a lot of drinks etc. Once you find out the prices it's extremely reasonable.

    It is so quiet at night and cooler than Florence. Dinner on the terrazza overlooking Florence. The antique everything. What better than a stay in a Medici Villa for a visit to Florence! You can buy bus tickets right there and hike up to the road to catch a bus. Nice 20 min walk to Fiesole, or you can take the bus. Coffee on the Terrazza next to the Aurora Hotel in Fiesole is great too. There is no A/C but the large ceiling fan was sufficient. No TV, but who has time to watch tv with all the stuff to do here! Internet connection was very good in my room, so could watch tv on internet if I had wanted to.

    Buses are ok, they come every 20 min or so but if you are on a short stay and don't want to have a 20 min bus ride, then that could be a problem. This is well suited for anyone coming with a car as they have lots of parking space and I think it's free.

    The staff was friendly and oh so helpful; the complimentary breakfasts were exceptional, and we ate dinner there as well: terrific. Being able to walk through the country side while being in view of all of Florence and the duomo was a real treat.

    We liked everything!
