Visit to a historic Florence villa
stay was ok. unusual home/villa run by an older couple who were both helpful and a problem. Security was their concern which made it uncomfortable at times. Doors were locked early and making contact to gain entry was awkward.

Excellent Stay at Historic B & B
We stayed in Villa Malavolta for two nights and found it to be an amazing experience. The property is about 10 min from the center of town and about 15 min from SMN train station via buses 11, 36 or 37. The buses run very frequently so we never had to wait more than a few minutes. We did take taxis on the way to the property when returning home late at night. Our room was upstairs overlooking the front of the property but there was a very large balcony off to the side which looks toward the city. A great area for my late night cigar and glass of Chianti. The room was clean and quiet and the bathroom was roomy by EU standards. If you are unsure of where to visit while in Florence, the owner, Donatella, is fountain of knowledge. We just let her know how much time we had available and she gave us a plan. Our son is a chef in the area who had a few days off to visit so we spent more time sampling food than the average tourist. Breakfast was plentiful with a selection of fruits, breads, jams, cake, meats, cheeses and excellent coffee. As mentioned in the other reviews, the meal is served in the oldest room in the house dating from the 15th century. The home is a bit of an art museum itself as the owner is an accomplished artist and sculptor. Her works as well as those of others is displayed throughout the home. WiFi was OK, better if accessed in the common area (library) outside the room, but it worked in the room as well.

Hotel Malavolta review from Santa Cruz
We stayed in 6 locations over two weeks and this one left an impression. It is a bed and breakfast and the owner has been there for many years. The villa itself is from 1450 and you get to read about the history of the house and the area. It is about 5 minute drive or 30 min walk from Florence old town (Duomo and the museums). the owner of the villa is an artist (as well as her parents) and she showed us her studio and the work she does. She was very helpful and welcoming. Room was beautiful with nice view of the back garden. This was the only hotel where we slept good. The bedding was very comfortable. The only issue was finding the place.. It was dark and raining when we came, and the villa doesn't have a sign to make it unique from all the other villas around it. So it took about 15 minutes to find it.. Other that that, I highly recommend it.

A Historical Place
I spend three nice days in Florence, from this B&B. This place is magical, builded around 1489, before we were discovered. The owner manage the place and are very aware about the whole house. It is close to the bus station to go to the city center. We definitely will come back here

Wonderful stay!
Best place I stayed of my 16-night European trip. Beautiful place, wonderful owners, a breath of fresh air. It's a little far to the old city but that can be overcome with a direct bus ride.
