"Great stay at Villa Aruch"
Fortunately the hotel manager sent me driving instructions, or the hotel would have been very difficult to find. Very close to the airport, which is one reason I chose this hotel. A mere 5 minute taxi ride to the airport, which I booked for a 4:30 a.m. pick-up. Hotel was very modern, clean, quiet, with a nice kitchenette, round the clock snacks in an […] adjacent community room, and plenty of in-room coffee. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The good and the not so good"
This is not a traditional hotel, but it is very close to the airport. There is no staff at the building overnight & early AM. There are no wakeup alarms. We had a 6:15 AM flight, the manager booked a 4 AM taxi for us. But we over slept. There is no phone in the room or available except in the manager's office. We couldn't call a taxi. But we were able […] to drag our luggage across a busy street to another hotel (B&B) where the called a taxi and we made our flight without very much time to spare! The nearest restaurant (average) was a 5 minute walk and there were no others in sight. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"An excellent hotel for families in Florence"
Villa Aruch is a great place for families to stay in Florence. It is clean, comfortable, artfully decorated, stocked with amenities and nice touches, and the service is outstanding. It is right near the airport and about 3 miles from the center of Floremce. A taxi costs about 15-20 euro or you could take a 30 minute bus trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
Villa Aruch is an oasis in the midst of a busy residential area. The character of the building and surrounding wall have been tastefully brought to life by the modern and daring architecture. We loved the whimsical art elements in the room and in the courtyard. Our room had a door directly out to the yard so we enjoyed an evening out on the patio furniture […] with a lovely bottle of wine. The room was perfectly designed to highlight the original structural elements. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Villa not a hotel"
This lovely and quirky villa comprises an set of suites with kitchenettes, a shared second floor common space and a garden. It is most suitable for longer stays, but with it's closeness to the airport, we chose is as our last night stop before a very early flight. Make sure you call before your arrive even if you have a confirmation. This lovely establishment […] is run by a small staff who are very accommodating but can be stretched.

"A pearl surprise!"
What a fabulous delightful hotel! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the rooms were great. A welcome basket was a great surprise. No continental breakfast but fruit and cookies available at all times. The receptionist was so helpful she even filled out the rental car accident report for the fender bender in the parking lot. Everything was so […] clean and decorated in artzey style. Some pieces were even for sale. We were very pleased with our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is so pretty, lots of personal touches. The bus to the centre of Florence is 5 minutes walk. This is a peaseful oasis in the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great special lodge"
This is a gem if you drive and stay. Very nice clean room and you can see the extra effort put in by the owner. Service is great too. There was minor fault found inside the bathroom but this is still the best accommodation I had in a 2 weeks trip to Italy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a last night in Italy stop close to the airport. Wish we could have stayed longer. A beautiful hotel, beautiful room with everything you could want. Staff was wonderful. Could not have been better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A mere stop-over turned into a fairytale"
Vi var kun på jakt etter en natts opphold på vei til Firenze Airport, og Villa Aruch ligger jo veldig nært. Det så lovende ut på bildene, vi tenkte oss ikke lenge om. Men for en overraskelse vi fikk! Massevis av små visuelle detaljer fortalte allerede før vi kom til resepsjonen at dette ikke var vanlig standard. Claudia i resepsjonen var vennligheten […] selv. Kvaliteten på alt, fra sengetøy til møblene, kjøkkenutstyr og sanitæret, hører til i en langt høyere prisklasse. Men viktigere enn det var at vi virkelig følte å være velkommen og tatt vare på. NB: noe man må få med seg: det sentrale opphoidsstedet for gjestene i andre etasje. Og den store hagen ! Alt i alt: noe helt utenom det vanlige. Det er bare å håpe at fremtidige gjester vil respektere den tilliten de møter her..... Vi akter komme tilbake i alle fall, og neste gang blir vi lengre! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Villa in città"
Soggiornato una notte sola per 12 ore. Ho visto poco, la villa è stata recentemente ristrutturata con molto gusto. C'è anche un giardino prospicente che è però privo di alberi di alto fusto che diano un'idea di verde e fresco. L'area al di fuori delle prospicenze della villa è abbastanza desolata: zona di periferia con costruzioni di carattere indu […] striale. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Inaspettata oasi all'ingresso di Firenze"
Piacevolmente meravigliata e soddisfatta di questa Villa totalmente ristrutturata. L'appartamento era curato nei minimi dettagli, confortevole. Un gioiellino... L'insonorizzazione dall'esterno eccellente nonostante la vicinanza all'arteria di traffico principale. Facilità di raggiungere in 15 minuti tanto il centro città quanto per uscire dalla città […] senza dover affrontare il terribile traffico di Firenze. Il personale alla Reception davvero squisito e competente. Un giardino nel quale rilassarsi e riposarsi dopo il lavoro di tutta una giornata... E non è poco! Cosa si può volere di più ?? Sicuramente di ritornare per ogni soggiorno a Firenze !!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hospitality, great price, great rooms and beautiful garden"
12/28/14 Patty C
Rooms are spacious, with a good kitchen and great architecture that makes you feel at home, not in a cold place away from home. The price is unbeatable for the hospitality and the enviorment you get. My kids loved the garden where we invited our Florence friends for a drink.
"Excellent apartment on the outskirts of Florence"
12/27/14 D R Hong Kong, China
Ideal if you're driving as they have plentiful free parking. The rooms are self catering apartments with an open plan bedroom and kitchen area. Very clean and modern and they also have free wifi. You can catch the bus to florence in about 30min from across the road. Saves having to pay expensive parking in Florence. Great base for the area if you have a car.

We absolutely loved our stay in Villa Aruch! The appartment we stayed in was perfect; it was comfortable, cosy and had luxury as well. The location was also good; good bus connection to the center. I absolutely recomment this please and would definetely return here when visiting Italy/Firenze again.
"Great value near Florence airport"
09/13/14 hiker017 Kirkland
My husband and I stayed at Villa Aruch the night before we flew out of Florence. We were not disappointed. This hotel is a great value, clean, modern and spacious. We especially appreciated the wonderful reading lounge on the second floor. The only thing lacking was the availability of breakfast at the hotel, but given that we had to leave early the next morning to catch our flight, this did not matter much. The proximity to the airport was great, and the hotel was easy to get to by bus (Route number 22) from the central train station. We would stay here again and recommend it to other travelers.
"Stylish apartment close to Florence"
09/12/14 Christian B
We stayed at Villa Aruch only one night. It is a flat convenient for reaching the airport. Although we arrived late in the evening, the receptionist welcomed us to a modern style apartment, cosy and clean. The design is very accurate in every little detail and full of amenities for a little apartment (wi-fi, hair dryer, coffee machine, ...). On a table there was a breakfast basket with jellies, nutella, bread, tea bags, coffee caps and bottle of water. There is an inner garden where you could sit and relax. The only down side is the area not very attractive in the suburbs of the city. Recommended if you need a location close to the airport (it's quite!) and if you want to stay for few nights.
"Excellent accommodation, highly recommended!"
08/22/14 Asma13 Nicosia
Very nice decoration, spacious rooms, modern quarters, clean and quiet, well equipped, helpful staff easy access to the city, garden to relax, spacious for a family of 4 , close proximity to supermarkets. Only a bit difficult to find at first but would stay there again with no doubt!
If I were a frequent visitor to Florence, I selfishly wouldn't tell anyone about this place. But since I'm not, I want to tell everyone! Villa Aruch has been so beautifully and stylishly restored, it's an absolute haven after a chaotic day in Florence. The location is perfect if you need to be close to the airport, or if you don't need to be in the city center. Francesco is such a warm and welcoming host. Super super deal. Thank you Francesco!
"Fantastic apartment in Florence"
06/30/14 Mohair0731 Aberdeen, United Kingdom
We stayed in Villa Aruch in June 2014 with two young children and it was superb. The apartments are beautifully designed and while not the most practical for very young children (ours was Apt. #13 with a fabulous metal staircase) our two girls thought the whole place was an adventure wonderland! There were many nice touches including a basket of breakfast goodies in the apartment and fruit, snacks and drinks in the guests lounge. The location is extremely convenient for the airport which was our main reason for booking it. Having stayed for one night I would happily book up for a longer stay in the future and travel the relatively short distance in to town and the main tourist attractions. We drove to the villa and had some difficulty finding it as the road system has changed recently and our GPS had us going in circles. However, having returned and just checked emails, the staff had actually emailed us a few nights prior to our stay to alert us to this and provide updated directions. We would highly recommend it, just brilliant. The staff and apartments are lovely.
"A gem of a place to stay in Florence, close to airport and 10 minutes to town"
06/16/14 hongkongmui888 Hong Kong, China
I found the Villa Aruch on booking.com - objective was to find a place close to the airport due to a very early morning flight. The 'hotel' is a villa which has been redone with about 16 apartments, all self-catering. There is a small reception which works normal business hours, and there is also a lounge room with cookies, fruit, TV and books. The whole thing is extremely tastefully done, and offers a greal level of comfort and style at a very reasonable price! Highly recommended.
