This is a strange hotel. The buildings are listed so they have kept much of the building in the old style. We were given a rather small dark room with a huge balcony outside our windows where people came to talk and to have a cigarette. The tobacco of course came into our room and the discussions where very loud... More

I loved this property. It didn't start out this way though. Leaving your key at the front desk is not something I have to do 99.9% of the places I stay. On this trip to Europe, it happened at two hotels. I'm told higher end hotels do this. Needless to say, I got over it. The room was spacious and... More

We spent three nights in Florence so didn't have much time to see the sights but staying at the Astoria made our whirlwind tour much easier and comfortable. The location is brilliant ... on a side street but only 5 minutes to walk to the Duomo and shopping, 10 minutes to the Ponte Vecchio or the Accademia. The train station... More

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

We were greeted with a very warm welcome by the hotels receptionist. Checking in was quick and efficient. Our room was beautiful, bed was comfortable and bathroom large. The only... 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
