Just wow everything was amazing one of the best hotels hands down

Very good place to stay. Very nice pool in addition to everything being in good shape. Very nice breakfast. A little farther from center of Florence (a rather long walk), but a shuttle bus runs enough to help. Main downside: not cheap (very little is in Florence, especially of the quality of Villa Cora). Our second stay as a family.

Villa Cora is truly a breathtaking place. And the people there make it even more enjoyable. They greet you with a smile from start to finish - wish our stay would have been longer!

Confused fron desk and embarrasing check out
The Villa is truly beautiful and renovated. We attended a 60 people private party and stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Our deluxe room was very dark and in an adjoining smaller building, no view, no natural light, still very nice. We usually book through Amex Platinum service, but this time we went with Expedia, so at check in we asked about the breakfast which we were told was not included. I requested to make a call to verify, because I was curious about the rate difference between Expedia and Amex Plat. The gentleman called, then apologized and told us that we were in fact receiving all special amenities such as access to the spa and a free breakfast daily. The next 2 days we never made it to breakfast or had the time to use the spa. At 7:30am on check out day we went to the lobby to settle our account and were asked if we wanted to go to breakfast while we waited for 10 minutes for our taxi. We went. I got a cup of coffee and my husband got a croissant and some juice. We said good bye to our friends and left back to the lobby. As we were leaving the lobbyy we were told by the same person who checked us in 3 days earlier that we owe 70 Euros for the breakfast. We were confused and reminded him that 3 days earlier he told us we were getting free breakfast. He said he never said such a thing to us. He also said he never check us in. He was raising his voice. It was beyond embarrassing. He said we did not need to pay, but made a scene. Then said he remembered us. Confused??
