    Historical Traveler Reviews Residenza Il Villino Florence

    I loved it.

    from

    My wife and I spent 3 days here this June (2004), and I thought this hotel was great. The location was a little out of the way, especially coming from the train station, but it was still very close to the Duomo.

    The rooms were clean, with new furniture and bathrooms. Our room, unfortunately, was the smallest (and it was small) - but the others looked much larger.

    Breakfast was good (the coffee was good too) and the service was great.

    I would definately recommend this to anyone travelling to Florence. Just watch out for the mosquitos.

    Overall good value

    from

    My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in May 2004. We had a very pleasant stay at the Residenza il Villino. Overall, the location was fine (a little bit of a walk to most destinations, but fewer hordes of tourists around our area). The owners, Sergio and his wife, were extremely gracious and helped us book some excursions outside of Florence. They also got us a room with a cute balcony overlooking the central courtyard when we mentioned that we were coming to Florence for our honeymoon. The only complaint about the place are the crazy mosquitoes. It's too bad you couldn't leave the windows and balcony open at night since the mosquitoes would have you for a midnight snack otherwise. After the first night (I counted 10 bug bites in the morning), I had to use the insect repellent I brought along and do a nightly "mosquito inspection and extermination" before going to bed. But other than the mosquitoes, I really enjoyted staying here and it is a great value!

    A great, quiet hotel

    from

    This is a great find in Florence. It's a little off the beaten path, but the two block walk to the Duomo or the Piazza San Marco is nothing. The rooms are spacious, clean, charming, and newly renovated. All rooms with the exception of the quad look out on a quiet courtyard. We were travelling with two small children and enjoyed the quad with its two large rooms. We had other family members staying at Il Villino at the same time and they had rooms on the upper floors with views of the Duomo or their own private balcony overlooking the courtyard. The breakfast is adequate. Perhaps the best part was the personal service provided by Sergio and his family. We were greeted warmly and Sergio provided all kinds of very helpful suggestions regarding sights, transportation, and good eating. Would definitely choose il Villino again.

    Great little place

    from

    We enjoyed our three night stay at Il Villino very much. We have been in Florence 4 or 5 times and have stayed at different places throughout the city. I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived but Sergio was waiting for us and immediately made us feel at home. I believe the buildng is an old Florentine Residence, with some of the rooms now offered to guests. Ours was #44, on the top floor, with a great view of the Duomo. The ceiling was exposed wood beams while the floor was tiled. We had in room TV, minibar and A/C. The A/C wasn't turned on until we requested it. We were actually more comfortable with the windows open during the night. The birds chirping nearby woke me in the morning and I closed the windows and went back to sleep. I thought we would be a little far from everything, but the ten minute walk to the Duomo wasn't a problem at all. The facility is actually close to the Piazza della SS Annuziata. Other than a tight shower stall we had no complaints whatsoever. Sergio and his wife make staying here a pleasure.

    Super Value In Florence

    from

    We stayed at Il Villino between May 16-20, 2004. Sergio and Elizabeth are wonderful hosts and the property is full of charm. This is a great location for tourists looking to get away from the hustle of the historic center and still be close to everything. Once you exit the street and come inside the property, you find yourself in a quiet oasis. The courtyard is a very nice place to eat a pannini and drink some wine.

    We left the windows open at night and had a brief battle with the mosquitos (who are a bit smarter and quicker than their American counterparts). I would recommend that Sergio consider putting screens on the windows to keep the flying critters out. At 120 euros a night, this place is a huge value.

    Breakfasts were ample and tasty. I would stay here again.

    Great owners, Great location

    from

    The owners were so helpful and pleasant to deal with. They booked side trips and museum reservations for us. The location is excellent, very close to the Duomo (I would not want to stay in the market train station area). The room is very spacious and you can enjoy your continental breakfast in a beautiful coutyard if you desire.

    The breakfast is made up of cereal,buns,croissants,yogurt,coffee, ham and processed cheese. There is a mini-bar in your room and the the products are sold with very little mark up.

    Traffic noise did not penetrate into our room but if you are on the ground floor you can hear guests move around when they come home at night. The cost was 120 Euro per night. We would definitely stay at the Il Viliono again.

    Nice and Cozy

    from

    I saw the review about this hotel here, but by the price I thought that it woud be just another tight bed and breakfast hotel.

    It really surprised me and my husband in our honeymoon.

    The bedrooms are big, clean and comfortable. We loved it!

    Wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Florence

    from

    I highly recommend Il Villino. It is a charming bed & breakfast in the heart of Florence. Sergio and his wife couldn't be more charming or accomodating. Be sure to request a room overlooking the lovely patio. It is a great value for Florence and a place that I will definitely visit again.

    Charming Florence B&B

    from

    We also had a wonderful stay at Il Villino, which offers very comfortable, elegant, air-conditioned rooms in a beautiful palazzo. Our room had a modern tiled bathroom and an adorable balcony with table & chairs. Service was also excellent -- friendly, helpful -- and the value is great too; we paid 90 Euros/night through the Florenceby website.

    Loved Il Villino

    from

    We booked a room at Il Villino through FlorenceBy not really knowing what to expect, and we were very impressed. This bed and breakfast was excellent, and certainly the best place that we stayed while travelling in Italy and Spain. Il Villino's staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast they served was lovely. Our room was on the ground floor, and our window opened out to the little courtyard. The pictures of this place didn't do it justice; the courtyard is very picturesque, and the room we had was great. The ceilings were the traditional wooden-beamed variety, the furnishings were all charming, and the bathroom was sleek and modern with new fixtures. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast - at 120 euro a night, we thought it was a great deal.

    ... Geographic special on Brunelleschi's building of the iconic dome so we knew what to expect. And yet, BAM! You notice your last breath was just a little shorter than the ten before it. We checked into our hotel (which gave us a bottle of champagne for our anniversary) and went straight to the Mercato Centrale (a fancy food court) to get a quick bite to eat. Right outside were the stalls of the ...

As it was our last day at Greve and Montiferelle we haven't yet stopped at Greve other than to park the car. Decided to find a place to eat there tonight. Quick shower and back out to Greve. Looking at the menu there was a voice behind me, but I didn't register he was talking to me. Was a bit startled when he ...

    ... walked through the wide Main Street (wide by Italian standards) passing clothes stores and restaurants on our way through as the sun beat down on our shoulders. Someone had told me that Pisa was not that nice, but I found it quite clean and pleasant. We walked for around 15min before the famous leaning tower of Pisa appeared, slanted as it has been for centuries. The marble was a crisp white and just as magnificent as one would imagine from the pictures. We found some good angles ...

    Today we made the train ride to Florence. The weather was good again today. We didn't get any rain. This was probably my second favorite city thus far. Dr. Paul showed us around the city and we made our way into the cathedrals and baptistries again. The markets had a lot to choose from. Leather purses, handbags, wallets, jewelry, ceramic etc. There were shops for you to purchase all kinds of gifts. I was able to scratch a lot of people off my list. Now I ...

    Tomorrow, we catch the train to Venice, where we will spend three nights before flying home on Tuesday next week. According to booking.com, we're staying in a nice studio overlooking the lagoon, and close to St Mark's ...
