    Fantastic building and gardens. Excellent location only a pleasant 20 minute walk away from downtown Florence. Wonderful pool.

    Even though we had booked a Deluxe double room described as "Large room with balcony overlooking Florence" we were at first shown to a tiny room with neither balcony nor view. Upon complaining we were given another very small room with a balcony. Still no Florence view. The room was small even by Italian standards and definately by Italian 5-star standards. It was a very charming room but it did not correspond to the description in Booked.net.

    I booked the hotel as a surprise for my girlfriend. It is an amazing hotel, that is so well done with excellent staff. They were always helpful, but such nice personable people also. I found it excellent value for money against other hotels in town that you pay top dollar for location but little else. We loved the staff, the views, the restaurant, the pool, the room, the four poster bed, the history, and the spa! What a great stay! Highly recommended.

    The only negative was that we had to leave.

    This hotel is exceptional in every way. The staff, the rooms, the facilities, the location, the views, the magnificence of it all is just breath-taking. We could not have chosen a more romantic and wonderful place in which to enjoy our honeymoon - a huge thank you to all concerned. We will be back, for certain.

    The cleanest hotel I've seen. Awesome interiors. Very cosy pool surrounded by a garden. Helpfull staff. In the reastarant they were able to cook what my child is used too. The hotel is about 40 minutes by walking from the city center, which is good (no tourists, big park nearby). There's a shuttle service and taxis arrive in about 5 minutes. Me and my 3 year-old daughter had a great stay.

    The room was tiny, but the terrace with the view over Florence was enormous

    Immaculate service, very helpful staff, I stayed there for the second time and my kid just loves their outdoor pool

    The restaurant menu choice is a bit limited, but they are willing to cook whatever you might need for a small child

    It is beautifully situated and the bedrooms and all open areas are very well designed and maintained. The staff are uniformly lovely.

    Perfect spot just outside hustle and noise of florence - a retreat. Nice size hotel - personal feel. pool area nicely designed and presented. food quality good and extensive wine list. spa facilities and ambience good. Our room, on first floor very memorable - beautifully ornate (painted ceiling). Bathroom very distinctive too.

    Whilst food was really good, the maitre d in the evening spoilt the ambience of the restaurant. Only a certain number of laid up tables outside despite the fact that there was space for more. We were ok but others disappointed to be asked to sit inside on beautiful evenings. He ran the restaurant to suit himself/resource rather than the way it should be in 5 star establishments - with the guest in mind at all times. As noted, the food quality good but it really should be at the price. Sense that there was no room for flexibility from the chef either - you either had a dish as it was described on the menu or choose something else. One final tip for hotel - change your menu during the course of the week - we were there for 6 days and had exhausted the menu within 3 days based on our preferences. They should do specials on top of main menu in order to encourage guests to eat in more.

    Everything about the Villa Cora is superb. A magnificently restored elegant house on the hillside overlooking Florence and the surrounding countryside. We went for a weekend break, booked just 2 weeks beforehand. About a 2 hour flight from Manchester to Pisa and 1 hour on the train from Pisa airport; the railway platform is literally outside the airport doors. Our room was large with an entrance hallway and walk-in closet / dressing room, but best of all, a large balcony with amazing views of the city. The service was very friendly and very good, we had room service meals on 2 evenings and the food arrived within 20 minutes and was excellent. The hotel has a large swimming pool which was very welcome as the weather was nice and hot and sunny. The poolside cocktail bar has a good selection of drinks; we were given a complimentary "welcome" non-alcoholic fruit cocktail - delicious. Suitable for all ages and all occasions. We can't wait to go back.

    It was a grand and luxurious hotel. Wonderful location. Pool facilities were great. Quiet

    Staff was stiff and very stand offish. Was an effort to help out. Not a very friendly environment. The driver was also very unfriendly. The turn down service was not at all constant,Lacking completely.
