Only good thing is, that parking is free and it is great look from the road during the night. Rooms are simple, With air conditioning and a flat-screen TV, rooms have a private bathroom with shower. Staff so-so, breakfast bad. Absolutely over priced. I don't recommend at all.

Spacious, clean room with private bath. The breakfast was sub-par, cold coffee. Not a good value for the price (102 Euro). Wi-fi connection minimal and slow if it worked. Pro -- front desk sells bus tickets, parking is included.

Staying in a 13th century villa on the hill of Fiesole, among olive trees and pine trees, with great views of the city of Florence it is an experience! Ideal for relaxation, especially after noisy wanderings around Florence, concentration and inspiration. And still very close to the city, either by bus or taxi. However, both the breakfast room and the...

The location was very convenient, with beautiful views, especially from the third floor, where we stayed. You can buy city bus tickets at the front desk, and walk to the bottom of the hill to catch the bus right into downtown and all the sights. However, the rooms and breakfast were acceptable, nothing more, and the reception staff was cold...

The location of Villa la Stella is good as it;s away from the busy city centre of Florence and the views from the villa are amazing. However the staff are rude, unhelpful and made my stay quite uncomfortable. Also breakfast was not great, I would not come back.

Stayed here for 3 weeks for a course and the room was quite large with tiny Italian shower cabin in bathroom. Had a view overlooking garden which was very pleasant. Some rooms have even better district views, some with balconies. Ask for one of these rooms if possible. All of them are quiet as the area is in a peaceful,...

Two nights, actually not enough to fully enjoy the view and the place, location is outside the busy Ferenze, on a hill, Fresh air and astonishing view of the Dome. Breakfast was normal, nothing special, the basics are there, staff is very helpful and friendly, free wifi is available and its convenient. This should be your destination if you enjoy...

An adorable little villa in the hills near Florence. Sweet smelling flowers greeted our arrival into a cute hotel. It's up a very narrow road that the bus couldn't reach, so we had to wheel the luggage about 100 yards, but no biggie. Cute rooms with gorgeous views. We woke up to sunshine and roosters every day as we looked...
