This hotel is close in to the centre, near the cathedral. When we stayed, as part of a group, only one lift was operating. This lift took a maximum of 3 people and was VERY slow. Fortunately we are fit enough to use the stairs but be warned, the rooms are on floors 1 - 6. Reception staff responded to...

My wife and I stayed here Mar. 19-22, 2017. Fantastic location in the heart of the old city. Very easy to walk to major historic sites, and Sabina who greeted us, made us feel very welcome and appreciated. She was extremely helpful, and made it clear to us more than once that she was there for the guests! One of...

The best part were the beds. Nice and hard. Comfortable blanket. Rooms big, clean, good bathroom. Staff is friendly. Really small elevators! Location of the hotel is fabulous. Centre. Can walk to all the highlights. Only the breakfast is not great. But I would recommend this hotel.

You will be hard pressed to find such a beautiful hotel in Florence where the staff carry the beauty in their hearts and deeds, this truly is a fantastic base to work from and to enjoy the beauty.

Staying here was quite expensive but it wow worth it food the private terrace and the view. There is a very good view of the Duomo from the west and an equally clear view of the Palazzo Vecchia to the right (even if the Palazzo Vecchia was slightly further away). We had a good sized room, split over two levels....

The hotel is very well located close to the train station with many restaurants nearby. I appreciated that the good size and cleanliness of the room and the windows were fairly well insulated from the noise outside.

The rooms are not equipped with basic facility like kettle and some sachets of coffee tea. Well that even a 3 star is having these days and Italians or basically europeans need to upgrade there.

The hotel staff was very friendly in our three night stay in Florence. It was a quick walk to & from the train with easy access to see all of Florence's sights. Rooms were clean and breakfast had a great (European) selection. Would absolutely stay here again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze is the ideal choice for your stay: you'll be accommodated in the rooms of the Palazzo Gaddi and Palazzo Arrighetti, historic buildings belonging to noble Florentine families, where art recounts the passage of centuries every step of the way. Indeed, it was while living at Palazzo Gaddi that the great English author John Milton found inspiration for his masterpiece, Paradise Lost, and in these very rooms that he wrote it. The noble past of Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze is also reflected in its location: the church of Santa Maria Novella, abounding in great art, is right nearby (as is the convenient railway station with the same name), and a short stroll will take you directly to Florence's historic centre. An undeniable advantage that puts the most beautiful areas of the city right at your fingertips. The prestigious salons of the luxury Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze, decorated in original Florentine Baroque style, are the perfect backdrop for important events. The restaurant will pamper you with typical Tuscany and Mediterranean dishes. ... more   less
