100% of the electricity used by Hotel Villa Betania is produced by the hydroelectric power plant in San Martino in Passiria (BZ – Italy). This means that for 2017 we will avoid emissions of about 8.59 tons of CO2 in the atmosphere. This is our small contribution to a better environment.
Right in the middle of a verdant park, the hotel is well removed from traffic and noise. An ideal site for your vacation between culture and rest. Ideal for those who prefer to relax in an elegant, calm atmosphere.
Hotel Villa Betania is a small and neat 20 room family managed Hotel.
The 19th Century Villa offers the modern tourist all necessary comfort, without losing its original character.
The main places of interest in the heart of the historic center of Florence, such as the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace, are all within walking distance, but may also be reached by means of the bus that stops near the hotel.
Thanks to its strategic location, Hotel Villa Betania is also ideal for those wishing to visit other places of interest beside Florence such as Siena, San Gimignano, the Chianti road and the Tuscan countryside.
Hotel Villa Betania is located in the most renowned residential neighborhood of Florence, surrounded by Villas of the Renaissance age, owned by old and noble families, between Piazzale Michelangelo and Ponte Vecchio (the “Old Bridge”).

In spring there are tulips and hyacinths. Roses bloom well into autumn, along with geraniums and petunias and brightly colored pansies that strive to survive winter. There are many other trees blooming in the hotel’s vast park such as pear, fig and the unmistakable olive trees. All the plants are beautifully cared for and so rich and colorful, they’re a treat for our guest-photographers.
