    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 is just unique because of its location, its staff and, the most important thing, the view over the city!!! Nothing better than a meal at the restaurant overlooking the city.

    I never thought such a perfect hotel would exist. In all my travels around the world, this place is number 1 for me! I still can't believe I was there a few days ago. Everything was like a dream. I love how they made each day so magical with all the surprises they prepared for us. My room was divine. Their food was spectacular and the sceneries will make you fall in love with life, over and over. No wonder they are number 1. I look forward in visiting more of their properties soon. It would be an absolute pleasure!

    We spent a truly enjoyable week at the property in June 2016. It excels at everything it does. The service was excellent with nothing too much trouble. The property is stunning, beautifully maintained with breath-taking views and the food... something else! They even laid on a Vespa for us to use!

    Fantastic hotel, with the most amazing view of Florence. We had an entry level room which was very spacious and well designed. Issues to be aware of is you are out of town and have to get complementary bus down. Out of season this is only every hour and taxis can get expensive. However it is better to have a sanctuary to come back to out of the hustle and bustle of Florence in our opinion.

    We dined here for our anniversary dinner - but walked the property before and after dinner. Perched on a hilltop in Fiesole this property is absolutely gorgeous with amazing views of the city of Florence. The gardens were well kept and rooms all had great views of either the gardens or the city.

    This hotel is an oasis of calm beauty hidden away on a hill away from the bustle of Florence. I spent six nights here with my daughter who is recovering from a life threatening illness - where better to recuperate than here. We were lucky to be upgraded to a beautiful suite complete with garden and a Nesspresso machine - George Clooney unfortunately was missing! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful -nothing was too much trouble for them please pass on my thanks for helping to make our holiday so memorable. Our six days went much too quickly but we will be returning.

    We stayed in Florence on our trip but I wanted to state how perfect the staff was at the hotel for our pre-dinner experience. We booked the Lover's Corner in the courtyard garden before dinner in advance. It was perfect. I arranged for flowers and Asti and the staff treated us like royalty. The view and ambience was incredible. For dinner, we went inside to La Loggia and the dinner was exceptional... along with more great views. The staff was friendly and food tasty. The hotel does have a shuttle to/from the city center as this hotel/restaurant is in Fiesole. We used a cab both ways, no issues with that either. It was well worth the 20-minute cab ride to this restaurant. I would stay at this hotel in the future. It looked spectacular.

    I stayed here for a couple of days last June and I have to say it is by far the best and most beautiful hotel I have stayed in so far. The service was superb, food was fantastic, cracking cocktails and a great wine list. The views are absolutely stunning - sitting in the restaurant overlooking Florence and Tuscany was a delight. The pool and grounds in general are also lovely although can't expect much less from a 16th-century monastery partly designed by Michelangelo... The absolute only downside was that our room didn't really have a window - just a tiny one right at the top of close to the ceiling so had to stand on a chair to look out! But all in all, I had an incredible time and long to go back!

    We had a lovely dinner at the Villa San Michele in Fiesole just outside Florence. We had drinks at one end of a large loggia with a pianist playing before we were seated for dinner at the other end of the lovely loggia overlooking the city of Florence. The façade of the VSM was painted by Michelangelo when the building was a monastery. Service was perfect, food outstanding, lovely wine list... just an absolutely perfect evening dining looking at the lights along the Arno below. It is an absolute treat!

    My husband and I did not stay in this hotel, but were given a tour and enjoyed a lovely cocktail party on the grounds and a truly wonderful Florentine steak for dinner. By all means, spend some time in this special place.

    The Belmond hotels are amazing, but most important, the people who work at these hotels make you want to come back again and again. The setting was spectacular, high on a hill overlooking the city of Florence. The hotel itself was a former monetary, so the building has a history and you feel the warmth of the previous owners. The flowers and greenery were perfectly manicured and the rooms were just beautiful. But as I said, the help at the hotel were amazing, warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. They were always ready to help us, even when we couldn't get a cab one night. We called them and they arranged for a pickup in town. The welcome you get from the front desk is amazing and you get it every time you walk in, we laughed with all of them. The concierge is incredibly helpful and I just can't say enough about this hotel. They have a shuttle into Florence almost every hour, so you can stay away from the ruckus of the city yet visit it when you want to go there. We loved this hotel and will return there again!

    From the time we arrived, everything was perfect. We could not have asked for more. Staff were absolutely great, even apologized for the rain, but an umbrella was there to keep us dry. Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms and well-stocked mini bars, and an appreciated welcome drink.
