    Absolutely nothing.

    The rooms were unpleasantly decorated, stuff and very smelly. The swimming pool was dirty and the bottom was full of leaves. There were broken tiles around the pool and the floor was uneven. Rooms were found along long, dark, badly decorated and smelly corridors. The staff were unfriendly and at points rude. The location was in the middle of a suburban street. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    It was very charming and original, a piece of history.

    Very tired. Garden was overgrown. I saw a rat on the loggia.it was very hard to find.

    The relaxing ambience and the style of the main rooms on the loggia.

    Wifi was badly intermittent and the food was terrible and over-priced.

    The owner, the lovely Cristina in her 70's welcomes you like a grandmother. Most people use it as a touring base so if you want a day by the pool you may have it to yourself. A lovely faded old gem of a building, the better rooms ie the tower and the ones on the loggia are full of history and character and you'll feel like a king in the loggia rooms in particular

    Some of the hotel is like I say a little faded and in need of TLC, however if it were polished to the point of nearby villa Stanley I'd feel underdressed and out of place. The Villoresi is as relaxed as a holiday itself should be

    This is an old Hotel that appears at first glance to be run down but there's something to be said for old world charm. The proprietor was a very nice lady and the hotel has a mystique about it that's somewhat compelling. The staff there were very nice and helpful. We found the breakfast to be very adequate. There's an outdoor pool which we didn't use but saw people in it.

    After checking into the room we had trouble fitting our luggage since the room was small. Everything in the room including the bathroom was old school. My wife didn't like the bed or bathroom. I thought the bathroom was clean but again old. We didn't care for the dinner at night at the hotel where we got indifferent service and average food but found it to be convenient.

    We were treated as the welcome guests of the noble family who have lived for generations in the 700 year old Villa Villoresi. The magnificent long stately gallery that is the entrance to the Villa, the comfortable, richly stocked library, the large beautifully appointed dining room, the courtyard and the peaceful, quiet, park-like grounds enfolded us. The staff were helpful, friendly, warm and personable and went out of their way to look after us. (When we arrived at 3:00 pm, hungry, Christina arranged for Danieli to prepare us a tasty lunch and serve us in the Courtyard. After lunch we were treated to the Villa's own dessert wine and the specially chosen biscotti that accompany it.) Our room was charming with a bright very large wall painting of the Tuscan countryside and the ensuite bathroom had excellent facilities. Later, at dinner in the impressive dining room, we were served excellent food - a pairing of fresh, firm pear slices with Tuscan Peccorini cheese was an exciting, delectable blend. The long second floor loggia offers repose and great views across the swimming pool, to an ancient tower and Firenze. Bliss!

    This place has so much classic Italian character. Beautiful facility in the spring, and so much history to learn when you read the room informational folder. The large shared balcony for all the rooms is fantastic.

    The triple room does not have a pull out couch even though booking states it does. The beds are a bit uncomfortable and you can hear all your neighbors.

    Very nice yard

    The attitude of the staff is absolutely horrible. We booked a double room, described as 25 square feet with balcony and a view. We travelled 400 kilometers to stay at the place, because the description and pictures of the room were magnificent. We were given a small room in the basement, without balcony, smelling like mold. When we complained that this is not the reservation we made, we were called cheap several times "for booking the cheap rooms", my girlfriend was pinched by the owner and threatened with a cane. The owner said that she doesn't care what it says on booking.com and that these are "the cheap rooms. If we wanted balcony, we should have paid more". After the scandal and spending half an hour on the phone with booking.com we were offered a room with a balcony looking towards a prison like courtyard. (The only one of the double rooms which has a balcony). We didn't want to stay at the hotel after being treated like that, as there is no place around to eat and we had to have dinner with these horrible people. We were told that we would be charged for the two nights we reserved. Thanks to booking.com's interference we were charged only one night and we were reimbursed for half of that money. The fact that we travelled 400 kilometers to stay there and decided to not stay and start looking for a new hotel at night should say enough. Beware: The standard double rooms DO NOT have balconies. They are in the basement; they are small and smell horribly of mold. Everything is old. If you complain, you will be treated awfully.

    - lovely old villa, you feel like you are in a time warp. - very helpful & friendly staff - rooms which open to loggia are fantastic and a must have!

    - shower was a little disappointing (warmish dribble) - restaurant was a little pricey but nice - breakfast (cheapest ingredients eg:processed cheese, reformed ham )

    Location. Close to the city, wonderful ancient villa.

    Ancient villa is fine as hotel if rooms and bathrooms are updated according to modern needs. In this case they are not. Small spaces, humidity.

    A place with such a sense of history, it was a privilege to stay there. Christina, her family and staff were very friendly and helpful. The position, only 20 minutes by train to Florence was very convenient and relaxing to return to after a day exploring the City or countryside. We extended our stay by 2 nights. It was hard to leave.

    Charming staff in what must have once been a superb hotel. Ancient building with lots of history.

    Hotel needs updating, bathroom poor. General maintainance sadly lacking in the hotel and the grounds.. Breakfast poor, bread not fresh daily and little choice. Dinner good.

    Everything! Christina is a wonderful host! This is a great opportunity to stay in a country villa outside the main city! The loggia is a great place to hang out, and all of the rooms are special! The restaurant is a wonderful example of Tuscan cuisine, and the staff live to serve!

    The wi-fi was spotty. I wasn't particularly surprised given the location, but it's something to take into account. Everything else was amazing!

    absolutely everything. The accommodation is superb as is the hospitality. The train is cheap and frequent to get to Florence. Wish we had booked more than 2 nights. We were on the first floor with a view overlooking the garden up a stone staircase.

    Pretty cheap. The croissants in the morning were really good.

    Run-down business. Beds, rooms, bathrooms were cramped and falling apart. Does not look as nice as the pictures. Nothing to eat nearby and the hotel restaurant is overpriced. The grounds are overgrown and obviously not properly maintained. Do not stay here.

    What a quaint hotel. Very different from the usual. Old and somewhat dilapidated in parts, it revealed a bygone age and life-style.

    The very steep stairs with only a rope handrail. Tricky for the mature!

    Swimming pool, historical building, good restaurant (even though rather expensive and with limited menu, not suitable for young children)

    Eating out not easy in August; toiletries not replaced after first day

    The history of the villa, the preserved original frescoes, art, furniture. This place has huge potential but needs some TLC

    Room was quite small, villa seems a bit rundown/neglected - cobwebs everywhere, bug screens on windows torn, gardens not well maintained
