The room had plenty of space and was very comfortable and affordable. The soundproofing is superb. With the windows closed, you cannot hear any cars even though it is close to the train station. The breakfast was perfect. Try the hot chocolate. :)

We stayed here with our grandchildren, we had two rooms and whilst the rooms were basic they were extremely clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from and a good selection of bread, pastries, eggs all the usual array but nothing pre-packed! We choose this hotel for its close proximity to both the train... More

Hotel Boccaccio is located near the Santa Maria Novella train station which is helpful if you are traveling in and out of the city by train. I should note that for the majority of our time in Florence we stayed away from the station area and that is what I would recommend but for our last night we needed to... More

Can I just start by saying that I am a fussy traveller. This has been my first trip into europe and for staying at a 3star hotel. Hotel Bocaccio has superceded my expectations in every way possible. Firstly, the bathroom was modern, clean and very very nice. The room was neat and quaint, with a beautifully functioning air conditioner. I... More

Small Dark Room Tiny Bathroom Uncomfortable Beds. The breakfast was just ok, the breakfast staff was very nice, but very limited variety of food. It was close to the train station and easy to get to the sights in Florence. The front desk was very helpful in directions and suggestions. We had an interior room, had the windows open in... More

When I first caught sight of the hotel from the taxi we were stuck in traffic in on the busiest T junction right by the train and bus station, I must admit I was rather horrified to say the least, and hoped our room wouldn't be facing the road. When we checked in the receptionist spoke great English and immediately... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location. Its located just 5 minutes from the Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station (for those going to Pisa and other cities) and the Sita Bus station (for those going to The Mall outlet). It is very, very convenient especially after a day's tour in or out of the city and after... More

First, I can't praise the front desk staff enough. They made phone calls for me to other hotels and were always friendly and helpful. I was allowed to store my luggage there for several days (for a reasonable daily fee) while I traveled to another town. They gave a discount for a good restaurant only 3 or 4 blocks away.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Boccaccio is in the heart of the historic city centre, a stone's throw from the railway station, from Piazza Duomo and from the Church of Santa Maria Novella. The extremely recent and diligent re-structuring, valorized by the original Carrara marble, has made the presence of more modern comforts possible harmoniously combined with the authentic Florentine style.
