    Gps navigation couldn't find the #oh house.

    It's nice place to stay. Good location and near you could find perfect outlet. Breakfast was good enough.

    One of the rooms had a malfunctioning toilet and breakfast was not the best, but it was ok.

    It is in a quiet location. Wifi was good, and beds were comfortable.

    Forest bugs in our room jumping on our light shade - creating drumming sound for 2 hrs. Shower cubicle very dated and in need of replacement. Window vent in bathroom was broken and did not close. Power went off as soon as you switched lights off - so phones were not charged.Room safe not screwed down!!

    WiFi was great and breakfast although basic was nice staff very friendly. Bed comfy.

    We arrived at a road construction so google maps has an out of date street view. The place isn't in the village Calenzano, it's in Pontenuovo. So if you see the Calenzano city sign on the road (arriving from east), you did something wrong. The hotel (rather a guesthouse) has quite small rooms. The room what is on the far end of the corridor has a bathroom with a 1,80m maximum height. The fixed showerhead is on the same height than your shoulder so it is very unconfortable to use. In the other room, showerhead was broken caused the water stream goes to the wall. So the bathrooms were under our exceptation, cries for a renovation. As the breakfast which was totally the same each and every day. One type of ham, one type of backery and of course the usual: jam, nutella. If you run a hotel in a forest, far away from everything may you think you need to give some better breakfast for your guest. They don't want to go to Frienze for a ham&eggs...or open the restaurant for breakfast may they have the skill to give good breakfast. The restaurant's kitchen closing 22:00 which is maybe too early in summer.

    The hall is roomy, outside there is enough parking space. It's integrated with a restaurant where the food is well made, tasty. It was almost full house each night, but some case the inner part of it is better choise then the outside. The waiters are a little overhelmed but the staff is friendly. The price:value is fair, you except a clean, normal accomodation at Hotel La Selva.

    From start I was given complicated direction from the airport. It turned out after two hours journey and over 35 euros that apart from a bus to central station firenze there is a direct bus!

    Clean. Friendly. Good restaurant

    A little out of the way. Building works at the location didn't help but I guess they have to be done at some stage.

    Staff were helpful and pleasant.

    Room didn't have air conditioning or even a fan so it was too hot to sleep without leaving the window open but that let in mosquitoes and unpleasant smell from outside.

    The pictures in Booking are from long time ago. There is no trace in the rooms and they are quite small. There are very strange origami birds in the rooms.

    The lady on the reception was really nice and help us a lot.

    Walls could be better sound insulated. Couple next to us were extremely loud. You could hear them all the way down the hall with their extracurricular activities while she called out to her deity. It made for some fun explanations to our children.

    Friendly staff and good breakfast.
