Reviewed 11 December 2017

Stayed here for a night while visiting Florence. Arrived cold and tired, the staff was lovely and gave us a quiet room so we could rest. The room was comfortable and the bed was incredibly plush. The bathroom is spacious with a stand up shower and a nice sized tub.
The hotel is lovely and I'm sad there wasn't more time to explore.
My favorite part is that there is an actual key to the room with an oversized key chain. Such a great little touch!

When we checked in our room, the room was beautiful but had a terrible stench in it. We told the front desk and asked for a different room. The room we were given was much smaller and we had to put 2 single beds together. An upgrade or the same size room we had before would have been nice, instead of a downgrade.

As noted, the Sina Villa Medici is a 19th-century historic building, where the “Sant'Anna sul Prato” monastery was once located. It is a very short walk from the train station but also a short distance from all the attractions of the Florence center city. The hotel is completely renovated and our room was amazing - with a terrace overlooking the lit hotel pool and garden. Amenities in the room are top quality. The breakfast was excellent. We will be back!

we were greeted by a very courteous staff, and they were very helpful throughout our stay. The room was immaculate with a nice view over the pool area. The welcome gift in the room was very much appreciated. A definite "we will return" place.

My husband and I are in our sixties, and have done a fair amount of traveling over the years. This may have been one of the nicest hotels in which we ever stayed. The building itself is beautiful--an old castle--and the rooms have been beautifully renovated. They are spacious, attractive, and have all the conveniences one might want while traveling. The complimentary breakfast was a daily treat, with ultra fresh and delicious choices. Perhaps the nicest aspect of our stay at the hotel was the service. Everyone at the hotel was exceptionally nice, helpful, accomodating. All made for a great several days in Florence. The location is very good--not in the center of everything, but a 15 minute walk from the pretty much everywhere we wanted to go, and in a very nice neighborhood. For those who prefer not to walk that 15 minutes, there is a complimentary shuttle that is easy to reserve.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony overlooking a beautiful garden and pool. We did not specifically request it...

This beautiful hotel is walking distance from all the key museums and other attractions. The building has been renovated recently and it is now an old villa with modern facilities- and sparkling clean. Breakfast is great as is the service.
