Villa dei Bosconi
Ranked #7 of 11 Hotels in Fiesole
Reviewed 15 August 2017 via mobile

Attended a family wedding in Fiesole in June and stayed at Villa dei Bosconi for 2 nights. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the breakfast had a good variety and we had a lovely room on the ground floor that opened out straight onto the swimming pool area which was stunning. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning on my next trip.

I arrived at Villa Bosconi after 2 nights in a very lacking hotel in Florence.
What a difference. Villa Bosconi is run by a "team", someone is always on hand to help you whether it is providing a bus ticket, calling a cab or giving advice.
The room and bath were clean and well supplied. The buffet breakfast more American than European in all that if offered. The pool as lovely as it looks in the picture.
Such a beautiful location and Fiesole such a relief after the busyness of Florence.
Best to stay in the Fiesole area and take the bus which runs often into Florence.
One caveat. You do need a car as the little bus that goes into Fiesole from the villa area runs infrequently.

Room Tip: When you register ask for a room on the pool side.

At first sight it looks pretty and the pool is a welcome facility after a long hot day. The room was private , comfortable and clean - more than adequate for our needs. The staff are all helpful and helped us to book taxis and a restaurant. The young chap who cleaned our room each day was charming. Sad to say that the breakfast is the most spartan we've ever had anywhere in Italy - it really was a joyless experience. But I also should mention that you're completely stuffed if you don't have a car. It's a 20 minutes steep walk in and out of town and when you do reach Fiesole, there really isn't much there at all. A very limited bus service and no taxis to hand mean you will struggle to go anywhere. We took the local buses into Florence whenever we could as a means of escaping the sheer tedium of the place. Although there's nothing badly wrong with the hotel, we'd never go again without a car and, pretty though it is, I'm not sure Fiesole is a town I'd ever want to return to.

The location is great, a little outside the cute town of Fiesole, this is a great place to base yourself while exploring the area and the city of Florence. The Hotel is spotless, provide a great continental breakfast with the usual cold meats and cheese etc. The facilities are basic but more than adequate. My favourite was the pool, I enjoyed using it after a days sight seeing around Florence.
It's easy to walk into Fiesole in the evening, if you take the camping road it's well lit and has a footpath, also it's quieter than the main road, though it does have a steep incline, but great to work up an appetite for some of the great restaurants in the town.

Room Tip: If you can afford the upgrade (€10) it might be worth it to get a room leading onto the terrace and...

This is a quiet, nicely appointed 3 star hotel with a nice swimming pool, in a cool spot in otherwise hot Florence region. Highly recommended for staying away from Florentine pollution. The ownership is friendly and breakfast good. I recommend getting an upgrade, for a few extra euros it is worth the better room.
