Hotel is placed in small town in Toscana. Outside it looks worse than inside.
Rooms are clean and warm. Very comfortable bed. So nice & clean bathroom.
Good breakfast with many dishes. So nice fresh croissants.
We came in hotel at the everning and were very hungry, here you'll not find working restaurant in. The man(maybe the owner of the hotel) adviced as a restaurant in nearest village Chiocchio. And great thanks to that man, 'cos we never eaten such a perfect steak, salads, wine, bread, cheese. So, just ask him about the restaurant and promise that you'll be excited
Bad service and rude
on May 10, 2016
Came to the hotel on 10 May 2016 and my first impression was:" it's alright". Once we got into the hotel we were helped by the reception and in my opinion he was the most positive aspect of this stay, because he sincerely tried to assist us with all the problems.
We arrived at 8 o clock in the evening and went for a walk in town. Everything was closed so we decided to eat at the hotel and arrived at 9. The host in the restaurant was rude and said before we sat down we are closing in 30 minutes. Fine, we got out menus and wanted to order some steak. It was not possible because they were closing. The only option was pasta and chicken and we couldn't even order a salad. We decided to order pasta and bread and you can't go wrong with that... Bread was dry and knew it had been out for the whole day.
Other guests came in and got the same story. The host threw the menus at the table and started complaining in Italian. It was notable because of the body language, way of speaking and his face looked agitated. He basically wanted to go home.
Eventually to summarise my experience; bad wifi, bad service, rude host, they didn't even have razor blades, restaurant closed at 10 according to the information guide in the room, but reality was 9:30.
A comfortable hotel for business travel
on Jun 29, 2015
A comfortable hotel, particularly for business travelers. Is in a good location at the outskirt of Figline, a quaint township 20 kms south of Florence. The rooms and bathrooms have been recently refurbished, so you get a new look feeling. Very good temperature control thanks to the AC. WiFi is working well. Locker is a bit small and there is not fridge in the room. Stilt parking available. Breakfast buffet could be improved. Staff is very courteous and ready to help. Overall, good value for money.
Very central luxury
on Sep 20, 2014
Very nice hotel staff. The hotel was a bit quit, but it was also just new. Very luxurious rooms. We were with the three of us so the third person was able to sleep on a couch-bed.
Everything was very clean. There was air conditioning. I can tell you, in july in Italie that's a piece of heaven.
Breakfast was nice. Good tasting cappucino's.
A real eye-opener
on Sep 5, 2014
Having spent many happy times at the Norcenni Girasole Holiday Village, we decided to book in at a hotel in the nearby, quiet town of Figline Valdarno for a few days, as a base for visits to friends at the holiday village, others at Castiglione del Lago, and for trips to Florence.
Hotel Toscana was a real eye-opener as to how good a moderately-priced, small-town hotel can be.
The staff are really friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and clean, and the restaurant is of a high standard, catering as it does for businesspeople travelling the Sunshine Highway between Florence and Rome.
Only the breakfast was a little disappointing - rather too much emphasis on cakes for British tastes - but there was enough ham, cheese, bread, yogurt and fruit juice to sustain us, and a good selection of teas!
The railway station is 15-20 minutes walk away, with frequent, cheap and comfortable services to Florence, though we found the local taxis a bit of a rip-off.
