This was a palazzo and still shows some of its former glory - tapestries, huge entrance with magnificent staircase, lovely breakfast room with fresco ceiling etc. We had a large room with an enormous bed and good size bathroom with bath (not just shower). The breakfast was good with lots of choice and the staff were polite and very helpful.

The hotel staff was nice and kind. Very helpful with directions. The rooms were clean and spacious. The hotel was close to the train station and easy to get to with luggage. The hotel was in a good location and was in walking distance to most major attractions. I would stay here again.

I had wrote reviews for hotels that I had stayed. So far I had yet to give any negative feedbacks, but think of which there is always a first time. Entering into the hotel (Astoria Florence), the design is rather traditional, but things go wrong as soon as my family enter into the room as assigned. First, both lifts are... More

This hotel was chosen for us by Perillo Tours. When we booked, we were told there was a beautiful terrace, but we learned it closed October 1. The hotel is walking distance from the train station, and the staff is helpful but does not offer opinions or suggestions. Wifi is poor-limited to the (very charming) lobby. Room spacious, as is...

Great location! Minutes away from the train station and around the corner from The Duomo. Walkable with luggage from the train station. Large lobby with wifi. Good size room with good breakfast. Walking distance to everything. The hotel is off the main road so not as loud. Rooftop has an amazing view of the city. Take a day trip. Tours... More

One good location close to railway station, two nice room with cathedral wooden ceiling, three roof top bar closed and only seasonable alternative lobby bar lacking in atmosphere and customers, four no English speaking tv channels at all, five poor breakfast scrambled eggs tasted reconstituted as did the juices and bread felt stale, tinned fruit salad in a 4* hotel??

We booked this hotel as part of a bargain weekend package we had found through Expedia. After arriving at Pisa airport, we had pre-booked (on line before leaving the UK) transfers using a company called Terravision and the transfer from the airport to central Florence was only €5 each way per person - taxis can cost over €100 each way...

Good location, only a few minutes from train station and airport shuttle bus.Room okay,quite small but large bathroom. Breakfast was quite good. Was very disappointed to find that the roof terrace was closed for refurbishment as this was the main reason I chose to stay at this hotel. The downstairs bar was never open throughout our 3 night stay and... More

Only a few minutes walk from the railway station and convenient to most of the City. There are several nice bars and resturants in the street or around the corner. Bear in mind this is a relatively small city. The hotel entrance is rather lacklustre and down a small side street. Inside, the reception and common areas are more open... More

We recently stayed 3 nights. Good location, near the Duomo and our room and facilities were acceptable for an older establishment. But, we ran afoul of the restaurant manager for sipping wine in a lounge area off the lobby. He rudely confronted us because he sells wine from his bar, which I understand, but his bar was never open during... More
