When the Messeri family established the Dino hotel in 1955, they wanted their guests to enjoy a wonderful position with a view on Florence and Fiesole. Set 500 metres above sea level, this former country inn today offers modern, spacious rooms and a comfortable apartment. Wi-Fi is free throughout. The Messeri family still run the Dino in a friendly, courteous way. The hotel's restaurant also offers delicious pizza.
The quietness and setting - great for a few days of peace nad quiet away from the noise of Florence and good for walking in the countreyside.
Unfortunately we arrived on a Wednesday on a day when the restaurant was closed bedause we had intended to eat there. Luckily we knew the area and drove just a few miles to Feisole,just outside Florence. However, they did recommend a selection of places to eat of all prices but I think it hepled that we were familar with the area and could make our own choice.
I had a wonderfully cosy attic room with view on the valley of Firence and Fiesola. Beatifull view at night and during the day. The restaurant was officially closed during that specific day but the staff invited me out of their own initiative and cooked me the same lunch and diner as they were having. That was really nice and food is so good! Wonderful. And the owners were so nice as to pick me up from a busstation personally because I had a late arrival. What more can I say? All in all very good. Enjoy your stay!
When travelling with public transport: make sure you arrive early in the day. On your way back you can exactly make the 12:00 hours fligth from Pisa but if you run 10 minutes late you will miss it. So flying after 14:00 hours is much more comfortable.
The food, the staff, the rooms, the view, the price, the facilities and the location.
pleasant staff, beautiful surroundings
the hotel was advertised as in Fiesole but is actually over 10 km outside it.
