We stayed here this mornth (Mar-2015) as part of our Italy Trip. This was booked as a 4 star hotel as part of our Italy Tour and We did not find this a 4 star property at all. This hotel is located at walking distance from the main railway station making it convinient to travel to the railway station and... More

This is a stunning old converted palazzo. As such, it has a massive amount of old world charm, but doesn't have wifi in the bedroom. Get over it! Our room was great, with a genuine king size bed (not 2 pushed together), armchairs, a desk and a lovely bathroom with bath, power shower and very generous complimentary toiletries. The dining...

We stayed at this Hotel during January. Its position in relation to the train station was great. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Our room was clean and surprisingly very quiet as our room was on the main street. Overall I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We have just come back from a long weekend at the hotel. We found the room to be spacious with a large window opening out onto an airy patio. The room was cleaned daily and breakfast had a wide variety of options with fresh fruit and very fresh croissants-delicious! We had excellent service from the very friendly staff who on... More

I'll start with the positives: the location is great. Right around the corner from the station and pretty central to a bunch of shops and restaurants. Also, the staff here are brilliant. Always willing to help with anything we needed and never without a smile. Also, the breakfast buffet was tasty and on the cheap side at 12.5€ per person.... More

For tourists, I felt that this hotel was very good. Yes; there is a smell of sewers in Reception, but it didn't make its way upstairs. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and I found the bed one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in. The room was spacious and clean, and linen was changed daily.... More

Couldn't get over how much space each room had, even to US hotel standards. The place was very comfortable and quiet. The Biggest downside was not having wifi access in the room, as it was only available in the lobby (in this day and age)? The breakfast was so so, not very big selection but good. The staff were all... More

Very odd hotel with a noticeable unpleasant smell permeating the building. Uncomfortable beds and an almost inedible breakfast selection. The only benefit if that there is so much space you often don't hear the other guests and staff were polite if not particularly helpful. Is in a very good location though, if you have a strong stomach!

I am shocked that this is a Boscolo hotel. I stayed at the one in Milan which is modern, clean and pretty good. The Florence one is in a great palazzo but it's run down, breakfast is almost impossible to eat, wifi only in the lobby and rooms shabby and dirty. Definitely not a 4 star hotel as it boasts....

Stayed here on new years eve and new years day. The hotel was beautifully presented as we walked in with the nicest service you could think of. The room was beautiful and the bathroom was very nice and modern. Only down part to this hotel was that our room was next to an elevator which was quite noisy.
