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.

My partner and I recently went on a dream holiday. This hotel was our 3rd stop on our road trip. Fantastic location in the city centre with tons of character. Great breakfast service and friendly staff that helped us out on our day excursion to the Chianti vineyards. The lack off wifi in all hotel rooms (you can only use... More

Pros: great location between train station and Duomo; big room (508) with balcony and large bath; very clean room and nice period furniture; nice and warm since it was very cold during our stay; beautiful breakfast room; the roof top deck/ terrace is nice for an overview of the city especially at night with the towers lit. Cons: the smell... More

This is a nice hotel in a great location within walking distance to the train station and main tourist sites. The thing that makes it the most special is the awesome staff. Luigi and Sabina (in particular) went out of their way to make several phone calls to the airport for me and helped with items needed when my luggage... More
