We booked to stay in this hotel in the middle of March 2014 for 3 nights. We arrived by hire car, but I would recommend that you use public transport instead as parking fees are really expensive. The hotel was amazing and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. We were escorted up to our room by the porter. What... More

This hotel was a private home about 500 years ago, and they spared no expense in renovating it to reflect the old-world charm of Florence. Prices are very reasonable, and the rooms are quiet and climate controlled. Just remember, Europe is more energy conscious than North America, so their idea of air conditioning is slightly warmer than North Americas are... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. We got the bus from Pisa airport to Florence and ten minutes walk away in the centre of Florence we found this fabulous hotel. The entrance is grand with an abundance of Marble. A very welcoming reception and as we were handed our key the porter took our cases up to the room. We had... More

I booked this hotel as a surprise first trip to Italy for my boyfriend's birthday as part of an offer that included flights in December 2013. After reading the previous reviews on here I was very nervous as for what to expect and hoped that the hotel would be nice enough to cope with for our 2 night stay. Overall... More

This hotel is centrally located. It is around 5 mins walk from the main train station and also another 5 mins walk to Duomo. That means everything are within walking distance. Breakfast is included in my room rate and the quality is not bad. Room is a bit old (but the hotel itself has a long history which was converted... More

We stayed here in May and the hotel is in a perfect location to all sites and is beautiful. The rooms are very nice and comfortable and the staff very helpful. When we go back to Florence we will defiantly stay her again.

This hotel is very close to the train station, which is helpful when you are lugging your bags and realize your walk isn't that far! It is also a central spot for all of the places you'd like to go in Florence. We were satisfied with the room and pleased to have free wi-fi in the lobby. When we checked... More

Maybe we were lucky (after reading some of the reviews) but we could not fault this hotel. Yes , there were one or two scuff marks on the walls in our spacious room but overall the standard was very good. Very comfortable beds, spotless bathroom, in a wonderfully central location. Would not hesitate in going back to this hotel. Staff... More

We got bumped into the Astoria when the hotel we had actually booked into (and paid for in advance through Priceline) didn't have a room for us - pretty sure that the Astoria is that other hotel's standard overflow place. The rooms were very worn and the walls in our room were quite badly banged up. Decent size room that... More

My fiance and I stayed here, we were happy with the quality of the hotel. Very friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast was good. Room was large, could have been updated a little more. No wifi in the room that was a bit of a pain. Overall we were very happy especially considering the price.
