    Sadly, I haven't been back for many years, but I have the fondest memories! I particularly remember one Christmas when I was staying at Bencistá for some peace and quiet and my parents and family were staying in town. The owners of Bencistà suggested that my family - although not even guests of the pensione - should come up and spend Christmas with them and the other guests at Bencistà, and it was a truly wonderful day. I hope to be back sometime soon.

    I know I didn't really stay there last year, but I wish I had.

    Room Tip: Ask for a "Room With A View".

    Great atmosphere, rooms, large patio with views over Florence and the surrounding landscape...and kind/attentive staff. Gentle dogs, easy bus to Florence (park your car and leave it there)..nice dining room. A bus ride up the hill to Fiesole is also recommended Overall a joy! and we cannot wait to return (Swedes and Americans both)!

    The wife and I stayed here during the Florence portion of our honeymoon. It was our favorite accommodation by far despite being one of the least expensive. Apparently it’s only rated at three stars, this simply shows the lack of value of the star ranking system. Pensione Bencista had better service, better accommodations, better food, better views, more activities, nicer staff, literally better everything than any of the 4+ star hotels we visited on the rest of our trip.

    We didn’t want to leave and are determined to return!

    We spent one evening here and wish it could have been longer. The views are breathtaking and the rooms full of antiques. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The evening meal was delicious! Taking bus number 7 into Florence was easy and they even had the bus tickets at the hotel and we felt very secure leaving our car and belongings while we enjoyed visit to Florence. Highly recommend!

    We stayed at this grand hotel as part of a walk from Bologna to Florence. It was an amazing experience, as the building and grounds look like they belong to another time. In a sense, old fashioned, but in a good sense, Rooms are thus not modern hotel like rooms, but more like staying in an historical building (which you are), Clean and comfortable. It gives you a real sense of history. Meals were good, old fashioned local fare, and good value. They actually ring a bell to tell you dinner is starting! Service great. And the views across the landscape were amazing.Make sure you check out the nighttime view of the lights of Florence proper.
