    Ape Rose is a nice hotel with free parking, big garden and quiet environment. Breakfast is almost the only service but staff is hospitable and helpful. The room is big enough. Furnitures are match to the old, but recently renovated building.

    Great Villa! Amazing feeling in this absolutely wonderful surrounding. Beautiful inside, and the garden ... wow, If you wanna get the suburban Florence feeling stay here. Need a bus to go to centre but bus stop near hotel takes 10 min. to centre so no prob. Secure parking, aircon. Great great restaurant nearby - no tourists. Owner and manager very helpful and nice!!!! Wifi in downstairs area.

    Could improve on breakfast a little but not bad at all.

    This was a beautiful villa! We really loved it! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The view from our room was gorgeous... You looked out and saw the rolling hills of the countryside. They had a nice breakfast every morning and you can sit outside in the yard and enjoy the scenery. They also had a hammock to lay in that we really enjoyed! The location was also great...right around the corner from the bus stop. To get into town we would hop on the bus and take a 10 minute ride.

    A beautiful old Villa with private gardens, set in a peaceful area yet with easy access to Florence centre via local transport. The original features and the furnishings in this historic building were fantastic. The staff were very friendly and gave us information about the Villa and the local area. Breakfast can be taken in the dinning room, with other guests or in the lovely garden. Free internet in the rooms is also available. Some building work going on at the minute (an extention and a spa bath in the gardens) This wasn't a problem and we would love to go back when the spa bath is finished, it was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely Villa

    Superb

    The room was wide, well equipped and had a marvelous view on the garden, which is a very nice place to rest, have a cup of wine or enjoy a sandwich. Especially in Firenze, where there is almost no public garden, this is a great place for adults but also for the children to play with some fresh air. Good stuff to park the car for some days and visit the city as pedestrian. There is a bus every 10 min to the city center (15 min journey).

    No real claim but we would have enjoyed to speak Italian or have the owners speak english to get more info on the hotel, the area, the city. The first restaurant or shop is a bit far by walk.

    This was a wonderful find! The room was great! The breakfast was wonderful! We were able to leave our vehicle and simply hop on the bus to go into the city to visit the sites. It was wonderful to leave the noisy city, after exploring all day, to return to the quiet hotel. We would definitely come back to this hotel again!

    Nice and comfortable room, situated at a beautiful property

    Hotel is a little far away from center (about 20-30 min on foot), but there is a bus that takes you to the center in 10 minutes, every 30 minutes. As it is located at a residential area, there are few restaurants nearby.

    The location of this hotel was ideal for us as we could leave our car in a free secure carpark at the hotel and catch the bus into Florence. The bus stop is just a few metres from the hotel and the bus takes around 15 minutes to the city centre. The staff were very helpful, our bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was adequate. Had it not been for the mosquitoes that plague Florence at this time of year, we would have spent more time in the delightful garden. However, mosquito plug-ins were provided in the bedroom and we were not troubled by any insects in our room. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Beautifully kept old villa and garden. Perfectly clean and reasonably large rooms. Friendly staff. Silent and dark at night allowing for a good night's sleep. Idealy suited to couples or families spending a couple of days in Firenze, or to academics or medics visiting the nearby University and hospitals.

    The Villa Ape Rosa is a beautiful old villa in a delightful, quite extensive and immaculately kept garden. The accommodation is very high quality and quite unique. The rooms are reasonably spacious, with antique furnishings which are entirely appropriate for the setting, very well kept and clean. Although the villa is not in the centre of Firenze, being located on one of the hills in the city, it is within walking distance (30-40 minutes), and within the grounds of the villa there is free and secure car parking. This accommodation is perfect for a short stay, eg. A long weekend relaxing and site-seeing, for couples and families. Being located near to some of the Universty faculties, it also also highly appropriate for visting academics. The buffet breakfast is also very good although, being available from 8am onwards, is not for early risers.

    Being a bed-and-breakfast, the reception is open only limited hours and so early arrival (before 7pm) is necessary. However it is possible to arrive a little later by agreement with the owners.
