Never Again
We had no one to give us our key at 10:30 at night, came home to a 90 degree room and air con that was controlled by the front desk, ants in our suitcases, hot water that took 15 mins to come through in the sink and shower and no baggage racks.

Great relaxed hotel for families
We have just returned from a lovely break at Villa Royal. We had three rooms at the hotel as it was a family trip. The deluxe rooms were lovely especially the room on the ground floor which is very spacious and opens out onto a spacious terrace. The pool area was so relaxing and made our holiday. The only downside is paying for the pool per person on a daily basis. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is a 15 minute walk into the centre of town where all the shops are. All in all we had a lovely holiday and would most definitely return to villa royal.

10/10 Exceptional

We had a great stay and the apartment (there were 5 of us) was very comfortable. Just note that not all accommodations are located on-site. We were in an apartment a few blocks away. I was aware of this possibility ahead of time as I had seen it in a review, however, if I had not known this, I would have been extremely disappointed. The main reason we booked the hotel was for the pool on our last day in Florence. When we arrived they said reservations were necessary as the pool was busy. We were able to make same day reservations so it wasn't a problem but I would have not been happy if we were not able to access the pool. Again, the pool was the main reason we booked the hotel.

Found this property due to my error in previous reservation and was very pleased, the pool was the clincher as temps in Florence were over 90F.
