This has to be one of our best hotel experiences ever. We knew the hotel was beautiful and historic from the pictures and reviews we had read. However it was the genuinely personable service we received that sets this hotel apart. We especially mention the wonderful attention given to our son, which is not always the case at some upmarket...

We love this hotel. It is more of a retreat. The staff is lovely and they treat children with so much thoughtfulness.

Simply the best experience ever. It is a breathtakingly beautiful property from the architecture to the gardens through to the decor.

We are faithful fans of the Belmond brand and had to experience the Villa San Michele for ourselves after reading so much on it. Having stayed in the city center of Florence in the past, we realized how much were missing staying in Fiesole instead. The Villa San Michele offers its guests a resort feel with fantastic Views of Florence...

This beautiful old hotel sits overlooking Florence. If your budget allows STAY HERE! If not, at least treat yourself to a sunset dinner like we did. A perfect meal on the balcony watching to sun set on Florence and the lights come up over this beautiful romantic city make for a magical evening. The food and the service are pretty...

It's a bit difficult to write a comment about "La Villa San Michele"... To be totally honest, this isn't the most luxurious property in the world and a few things might be improved especially because this is an old hotel - And I'm not only talking about the rooms in the older part of the building :-) But this place...

This is THE place to stay if your budget allows. The ancient building is so well designed architecturally and the rooms with views magnificent. It is well worth the price. The dining area was so wonderful and convenient, there's no place else I would consider to dine. The food is excellent as well.

Let me start by saying that this hotel is pricey so it may not be for everyone. However, if you are fortunate enough to stay here, you will be in for a first class experience in every way.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A short distance from the centre of Florence, Belmond Villa San Michele is housed in a 15th-century monastery with a façade designed by Michelangelo. It is surrounded by a large, wooded park and lush terraced gardens boasting magnificent views of the city and the Arno Valley below. The 45 bedrooms and suites are simple, peaceful and elegant while the Renaissance splendour of Florence is a mere 15 minutes away with the complimentary shuttle service, running every 20 minutes. La Loggia Restaurant provides a unique dining venue where guests can enjoy their lunch or dinner, based on Italian and Tuscan cuisine, while admiring the view over Florence. For a light lunch or a snack, the Pool Restaurant, situated directly by the hilltop panoramic swimming pool, is the ideal place. For food lovers, the renown Cooking School offers hands-on lessons to learn how to prepare the best Italian specialties. A Kids' Club and a dedicated Kids' Concierge are available to make the stay of younger guests truly unforgettable. The new Davanzati Room offers privacy and tranquillity thanks to its exclusive location, and a spacious terrace with a view for small banquets, cocktails and coffee breaks. Ideal for hosting meetings, launches and presentations, it also serves as a space for banquets for up to 100 people. ... more   less
