Score from 26 reviews Exceptional
The beautiful house, the fantastic view of Florence. The lovely welcoming staff The feeling that you'd arrived in the 1930's the whole place is like a scene from Poirot. And most particularly the dinner gong!
The service, the location, the view, very calm, the food (diner), the atmosphere,
The reduce choice of gluten free food at breakfast
room(37) was large with good sized bathroom/tub. room overlooks the entryway with view up the hill towards Fiesole. views of Florence from terrace were beautiful staff was wonderful to get information about driving and getting into Florence(bus 7 takes about 25 minutes to get to Florence(cost 1.5 euro) food was good. road to bus is hilly and takes about 10 minutes to walk. Fiesole is a 20 minute walk uphill on narrow road.
The location and views of florence were superb. The furnishings were a glorius tumble of antiques and various bric a brac.
The rooms that we accupied 14 and 17 were close to the outdoor terrace area and there was extensive, group, noisy partying going on until late at night. Also, I had to physically hoist my wet wife out of the tiny tub. (no shower).. The rooms we accupied were very small.
Beautiful setting, a haven from the hustle and bustle of Florence. Charming staff, excellent food & impeccable service. We were very sorry to leave
The view of Florence from the many perches around the garden terraces of Pensions Benciste can't be beat. The location, set just far enough from the noise of the city, is easily accessible by bus to all the sights in Florence and Fiesole. The fixed price, full course dinner offered in the hotel's quirky dining room is a great value and tasty treat after a long day of sightseeing. We would definitely stay there again and would happily recommend it to others.
Beautiful location giving fabulous views over Florence. Fiesole is a lovely location in its own right with lots to see. Great location to take bus into Florence. Lovely helpful staff. Good food. Beautiful building. Wonderful terraces.
Atmosphere, view, friendliness, food, location
Views and the location. Able to relax.
Smallness of room.
Incredible views, staff makes you feel like family, comfortable beds, extremely clean, quiet countryside location, sensational villa ambiance, walking distance from the center of town, plenty of parking.
I'm sitting here wracking my brain trying to think of something I didn't like about this place and there simply is not one thing I can come up with!
Wonderful quiet location overlooking the historic City of Florence. Very easy access daily by local bus. A marvelous oasis of calm after a day of impressive culture in the City. A delight to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner on the terrace. Friendly other guests who clearly appreciated all that this family run hotel/Pensione can offer.No problem with allegedly noisy staff.
Rather small bath. Several mozzies around in the evening.
Decor, position, space, environment and food
Pensione Bencista is impressive from the first sight as you drive up. That is if you like old school elegance and hospitality. Nothing new and pretentious about the place but a ton of class. Great staff, great food, great old German grand piano in the parlor open to guests, and of course a view of Florence that is fabulous. It's an easy drive to the city or a quick bus ride. Not many hotels I would go back to but this one is defiantly on the list!
• The amazingly beautiful villa and vistas. • The family that runs it. They are kind people (the kind of people I would want to have in my circle of acquaintances) and they are dedicated to their guests having a wonderful stay. • The location. This is the only way from now on that I will want to visit Florence. Perched on the hillside above the city, it is an absolute dream, at the end of the day to sit at the terrace and contemplate this gorgeous Italian landscape with the famed Florence landmarks in the distance. • The fact that each room has double doors for soundproofing AND full screens on the windows. • The history of the place that gives it incredible charm and uniqueness. • I am from Malibu, California and I travel a lot. I often stay in 4 star hotels, and my experience at this villa tops them all. This is my absolute favorite.
Absolutely nothing. I love everything, very, very, very much!
nice quite location free parking splendid view on Firenze romantic atmosphere
Location is amazing plus convenience of public transport is ten minutes of an uphill climb which is good for the daily exercise. I loved the fresh fruit selection especially the figs. I would definitely stay again but probably go with a larger room.
Mosquitos! Should have turned the mosquito repellent on, was a warning as it was on the table. For the price which is competitive with nearby hotels, expected it to be a bit more upscale like fresh croissants and bread for breakfast but there's the cake everyday.
What a great place!
the staff was great and the facilities were good. Enjoyed the magic views and the beautiful atmosphere.
Location, views, rekindled memories of last visit 25 years ago. Good bus into Florence, Fiesole a nice little town
The family made you feel so welcome!!
Could just do with a pool!!
Quiet, awesome view of Florence at night. Easy bus to city. Third time there.
Awesome view above Florence. Quiet, serene. East access to #7 bus to Downtown Firenze.
Extremely gracious family run Pensione , all staff polite , well run .Quiet , fabulous location,good bus route into Florence
Mosquitos ! Officious bus inspectors
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.
