Charming old villa, beautiful rooms, some with balcony or garden. Fine breakfast. 6 Minutes walk from airport shuttlebus, 15 minutes to centre. A lot of small restaurants in the area. (Baldini, via Prati!!) Helpful and friendly staff. At this moment in time, oktober 2006, the street in front of the hotel is under construction. So you´re better off booking a bit later. Nice excursion during the day: take the bus to Lucca. Make sure not to forget to visit Oltrarno area and the area east of the Dom. It is much less touristic. Most of the tourists keep close to the Dom and the Uffizi. Do reserve entrance tickets for the Uffizi, it'll save you 3 hours. We will definately go back to Florence and Villa Azalee. 4 Days is not long enough to visit Florence.
