It was very close to the train station and even closer to shopping areas and lots of restaurants. It is almost few minutes away from the touristic places like st lorenzo chapel and the midici family castle as well as the duomo cathedral. The breakfast buffet was very good and you can see the beautiful carvings and paintings of angels... More

Just returned from a mini break to the fantastico city of Florence with my wife & 12 year old daughter for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. First things first, the hotel is perfectly situated in the center of Florence but down a small side street, so not too noisy at all. The Hotel is beautiful, built in the 14th century it... More

My wife & I stayed at The Astoria for a week in early August, I went open minded as I had read varying reviews, I was particularly looking forward to having a drink at the rooftop Bar as my wife loves them. The hotel is literally across the road from the Terravision Bus Drop off point which was brilliant &... More

Location is perfect for Florence sightseeing. Check –in reception was very pleasant and efficient. The pleasant disposition of all of the staff that we encountered during our short stay was continuous through every level. We took a deluxe room which was nicely decorated in traditional style. It showed some signs of wear but clean and adequate nonetheless. It had fantastic... More

Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations! 5 minutes or less from the train station. When you first walk into this hotel, it is just grand in every way from the authentic Italian decor, the friendliness of staff and just the comfortable feel you get. We had a room with a little balcony and the view of Florence and the... More

I was going to be arriving in Florence by train & liked that this hotel was near the station. I know that areas around train stations are not always the best, but the photos of the hotel looked appealing. Upon arriving, the hotel was easy to find & only a 5 minute walk from the station. I was not disappointed... More

Upon entry the lobby area is quite stunning. Very convenient location, close to the main train station, which was a plus as it was convenient when taking a day trip to Pisa. Also within walking distance to the town centre, Duomo, Ponte del Vecchio and other main attractions. Classic design with original Frescos, that although as some have stated is... More
