    Price versus Quality not in balance. (There was a scorpio in the room). They advised us to take a free parking in Fiesole where the car was smashed and we were robbed. There was no compassion at all not even a question if they could help in any kind of way.

    The location and the scenery.

    The only thing we missed was a faster wifi in the rooms. The rest was perfect!

    We stayed in this lovely hotel for 8 nights. The rooms were clean and with good A/C. Good breakfast which was enjoyed outside on the nice terrasse where we also admired the amazing sunsets in the evenings. Best of all though was the lovely pool area. Clean water and an oasis for relaxing. The personal was serviceminded and helpful. The hotel is situated in a 15 minutes walk/3 minutes drive from the small village Fiesole. From Fiesole the bus runs every 20 min. to Piazza San Marco all day except for late in the evening. After 21 the bus runs twice an hour. It is also possible to take the connecting bus to/from the hotel, but the bus runs only few times a day. The hotel sell bus tickets, cheaper than on the bus. When walking to/from the hotel, be aware of the traffic.

    Beware of NO WINDOW SCREENS in Italy. This was a beautiful place in the hills of Fiesole. The weather was beautifully cool and since the air is turned off Oct 1 in Italy, it made sense to open the doors to the gorgeous patio at night. WRONG>>>> the mosquitoes carried us away. Miserable, Miserable. Ended up having to sleep in a cocoon of our sheets so the mosquitoes would not bother us. Our faces were covered with bites for the next 4 days. Every person staying there complained about it as well.... but since the air was shut off Oct 1st, there was nothing that could be done but close the doors and sleep hot.

    We liked the location very much and the staff were very nice.

    Did not like the road from Florence to upper Fiesole. Coming late at night was a stressful drive up. All, it is quite a distance from Florence with traffic. Air is good and so is view, especially appreciating quiet and peaceful setting.

    No heating in the room - it can be cold in winter season (though I imagine it's wonderfully cool in Tuscany's summer heat). The window shutters got very noisy in the wind, so we were forced to fold them in the middle of the night. WiFi was not working in the room (although staff warned about it right from the start)

    The staff fulfilled the last minute request regarding double/twin preference. Breakfast was good. Location is great if you have car (otherwise it's harder to enjoy the town of Fiesole). It was quite in the hotel even though it was fully booked.

    Its situation was a little isolated and two buses were needed to reach Florence. They didn't serve dinner so a bus was required to travel to Fiesole but the service was infrequent and stopped early, so you needed a taxi if you could find one. Breakfast was dull!

    It had a relaxed atmosphere and was in a quiet area. Staff were very helpful.

    It would have been unrealistic to expect anything much better for the ( very reasonable ) price.

    Fabulous setting 4 or 5 miles from Florence on the North side of the Arno and about a couple of miles further North of Fiesolo up a very pleaseant winding tree lined semi Alpine country road, Very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful little swimming pool ideal for an unwind at trhe end of the day or a freshen up first thing in the morning before breakfast, Wonderful view over Fiesolo and Florence in the distance.
