Simply the best experience ever. It is a breathtakingly beautiful property from the architecture to the gardens through to the decor. The walls are covered in Jasmine and were in full bloom when we arrived - so we were met with a heavenly scent as all of our senses were filled with beauty. We stayed in one of the Garden...

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. I have stayed at some of the finest hotels in the world and sometimes the staff can be pretty stuffy, especially when...

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.
